Albany is primed and more.

This is obviously your favorite site, but other people actually write important stuff sometimes. Now is that sometimes.

A Full Pint

Lambrecht: Albany Primed for Season in Spotlight
It's easier to stalk and hunt rather than to elude other alpha predators:

One year after they charged to 13 victories, led the NCAA by scoring 16 goals per game and did the improbable by knocking off Syracuse and Johns Hopkins on the road, Albany is getting attention, all right. The Great Danes are ranked no. 10 coming into the regular season, and with Lyle, Myles and Ty Thompson back one last time together to form the most dazzling attack in Division I, much is expected from Albany.

"We're not creeping up on anybody. We're dealing with success. People are actually noticing us," Marr said. "That's a little bit more of a challenge for us."

Tape is out there on Albany. Coaches have spent the summer trying to figure out how to slow down the Thompson Trio. Everybody knows the Danes' capabilities, and that Albany isn't a gimmick. Teams want to slay the Great Danes this season and won't look past Marr's team. This isn't 2013 for Albany. This is a different kind of reality.
