  With the University of Rhode Island spring football practices wrapping up, here are some of the things I saw: First Down:  The quarterback competition seems to be down to sophomore Wesley McKoy and redshirt freshman Jordan Vazzano, as they took all of the reps while I was present. Of those...

Albiani’s take

Positives:   The University of Rhode Island baseball team had a fantastic showing this past week. After losing a tough 2-1 game to Quinnipiac on Thursday, the Rams responded and took all three in a series sweep of conference foe St. Bonaventure. Rhody now has a three-game winning streak after...

Albiani’s take

Positives:   The University of Rhode Island football team had a solid first scrimmage of the spring and seems to be more improved heading into coach Jim Fleming’s third year. The offensive line, which was a problem at times last year, looked very mobile and moved people to facilitate an...

Positives:   The Rhode Island men’s baseball team rebounded strong with a series victory over Virginia Commonwealth University by winning the first two games at home, before succumbing to the Rams in extra innings 7-3.

Albiani’s Take

Positives: The Rhode Island men’s baseball team winning its Atlantic 10 opening series against George Mason was a great effort and builds off their last series win against Towson. Rhody now has won two consecutive series with a loss at Penn State sandwiched in the middle of the two series...
  The University of Rhode Island’s spring football practice is now underway, so here are some notable takeaways that I came away with: First Down:  The opening stages of practice began with conditioning drills and working on getting the ball off at the snap count. Penalties are something that plagued URI...
Thursday night saw the emotional rollercoaster for the Rhode Island men’s basketball team come to a crashing halt as the reality of a short bench, banged-up team and inconsistent play finally caught up with them for good, dropping their opening-round game against UMass 67-62. The game started off about as...
