The UAlbany Football Great Danes had a rough year last year. Injuries ravaged the UAlbany roster last season and a year that began with high hopes had it's share of issues. After a strong recruiting class and a tough schedule UAlbany won't have an easy path but they will have opportunity.
The fact that the Danes played a power five school an held their own in the second half seems promising. As the game wore on it slowed down for UAlbany and they looked like a team that could at least hang.
UAlbany Head Football Coach Greg Gattuso is building a program and will have at least five more years to do just that, after signing a three year extension. That not the only reason Gattuso has a smile on his face lately. He also had a great Recruiting Class for next year.
