ok let's see what happens when both Tennessee and Texas am offer Franklin 8 mill robe the new head coach. Does psu annoint JM like many on here believe

I highly doubt either Texas A&M or Tennessee is going to almost double their football coaches salary for Franklin. They might, but I doubt it.

Here is a list of salaries

These numbers are really eye opening.

Hey Ram-Spouse, do you behave this way in real life? Or are you using the board as an outlet for your unaddressed issues?

D'oh...  Good catch on W. Michigan...

Minnesota will do it if he wins big.  I don't see 7-8 wins getting him anywhere in an over-rated Big 10.  I think a couple of years of 9+.

They certainly won't be holding any benfits for him.



AOC, you've said this a couple of times now. Interested to know what your thinking is here.

The myth of the "non-scholarship" Ivy League is long gone, if it ever existed.  Everyone knows that. With one or two exceptions it is not a good level of play.   The presidents live with football because they have to but they continue to do everything possible to diminish it.  There was a proposal to ban kick-offs that was seriously considered. The Dartmouth coach was doing commercials last year explaining how his team tackles robot dummies instead of live players in practice. Rosters are limited as is recruiting. Their out of conference play is limited to the PL, NEC and Pioneer League.  Hopefully, it is just bad timing that The Ivy League is ripping up PL opponents so far this year.  It is not a good sign for the league and it has nothing to do with the IA or redshirt policies. 

Agree with most of this, just a couple of comments though.

The tackling dummy thing has actually been growing. This article (one of many) mentions that the Steelers, Ravens and Cowboys incorporate them, as do ND and West Virginia. I would guess there are more instances than that.  https://www.digitaltrends.com/outdoors/mobile-virtual-players-small-football-teams/

As to a good level of play, that depends on how you look at it. Do you measure against all other college ball, your league level, your league, your expectations, or what?  Is everyone beneath Alabama and Clemson not a good level of play? North Dakota State? I realize you mean competing for the FCS championship, but that is not what the Ivies want to do. What I am saying is that the quality of play is relative to the goals. For Fordham, I would be quite happy with the PL championship, however achieved. I am aware that falls below the aspirations of others here. To expect much more, it would seem, is to guarantee disappointment. What is going on currently in the Bronx, however, is unacceptable.

We seem t go through sports marketing staff very quickly. Does Grank chase them away?

They probably leave when they realize there is no sports marketing.

I believe if Fordham wins, we move up to the Collegiate Rugby Challenge next year. Delaware won last year and moved up.
Don't know if anyone gets relegated.

Eastern Washington comes here after opening at Texas Tech, and then hosting North Dakota State for week 2. Their game after us is the Montana Griz, a hated rival for them. We need to play well, hopefully win, and establish some national credibility for Fordham and the Patriot League.

The PL has had 2 bids a couple of times recently, but not often, so yes we need to bulk up the OOC schedule, and win,  if we want to have better odds for an at large, but so do the other teams in the PL to improve the league perception, and the only ones capable of that at the moment are Colgate and Lehigh.

They would probably complain about the pressures created by Fordham's endowment...oh, wait, let's look at the endowments of a random selection of Catholic D1-basketball-playing colleges and universities:

Fordham: $721 million   $456
Holy Cross: $681 million  $162
St. John's: $643 million  $560
Villanova: $551 million    $304
Loyola (IL): $535 million  $485
Dayton: $500 million        $394
Creighton: $448 million    $154
Loyola Marymount: $440 million
Fairfield: $310 million
San Francisco: $300 million
Duquesne: $260 million
Seton Hall: $242 million
Marist: $220 million
St. Joe's: $216 million    $160
Providence: $213 million
Loyola (MD): $206 million
Gonzaga: $181 million       $170
Sacred Heart: $137 million
St. Mary's: $133 million      $58
Siena: $132 million
Iona: $116 million
Canisius: $110 million
Niagara: $93 million
LaSalle: $87 million
Manhattan: $79 million
St. Bonaventure: $60 million
Detroit Mercy: $44 million
St. Peter's: $31 million


Endowment is not the whole picture. Lets look at debt (numbers may not be for the same year, for example from their financials Loyola Chi. endowment 2016 was closer to $650). I will paint inside the lines here, adding a debt column for selected schools within the quote box. What does it tell me? Not sure. In any event, as far as I can tell without doing some more research, most athletic infrastructure initiatives are undertaken through targeted fundraising and sponsorships, not from the endowment. I understand that the administration seems not to want to allow fundraising of any consequence directed toward athletic infrastructure.

By the way, if they wanted to have an impact, they would raise money for the FM training center, not for cosmetics. Or we could have the FM comfort area, like Lombardi does on the NJ Turnpike. Don't know FM, not trying to be disrespectful, but its good enough for Vince, and the place needs one.

It is possible for the coaches to make a mistake. Infallibility is at a premium these days.
27  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Recruiting Update on: May 03, 2017, 06:38:38 pm
Its seems pretty clear to me that JN is not a hale fellow well met back slapping kind of guy intent on managing his externals (although he could incorporate a little more) , so trusting that he and the staff have their noses to the grindstone.

We will hear when we hear. It is kinda quiet though.

That's what happens when you have so many different people providing their opinion.

The dissonance arose because the same people were saying the "seemingly" contradictory things, although not all in the same threads.
29  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: AA to UCONN on: April 18, 2017, 08:38:25 am
It seems there is a fair amount of cognitive dissonance going on here

AA is good enough that if he stayed and played for us and we got a couple of pieces, we could contend for post season basketball next year
versus
UConn  is going to be bad, and he won't play anyway because its UConn and he is not good enough, but they are going to be bad

He is good for the A10 but not the AAC
versus
The A10 and AAC are pretty much equal

He is a one year transfer and they need pieces because of unexpected departures, and they won't do anything for his game, because he is just filling a seat on the bench
versus
What exactly are we going to be doing next year with transfers?

Our coach can coach players up, but
Their coach can't or won't, because why would you want your players to get better?

I could go on.

Where is everybody going and why?

We don't know. Radio silence on both. It would be nice to hear from JN on the subject. So we speculate

I think CS planned to do this from the start. Otherwise, why graduate in 3? Optionality? Free grad degree either way I guess.

Anderson? Who knows. Although Fordham took some risk with him and he should feel some gratitude.

Not sure what JC's plan is.

Point is they don't want to stay. They knew about the gym and the fans when they came, that couldn't have been a surprise. They are (were) integral parts of the team, lots of PT. The team was improving, not straight line improvement, but not the horror show it was.  One or two good adds, who knows? Of course we have not heard about any recruits yet. And 3 guys that are here don't want to stay. Don't know where they are going yet, but they don't want to stay.
