Tell him to talk to Omar Cook.

Jake Fay is a graduate transfer at Hartford. I think we should sign him just so we can get 85's reaction posts.

And then give the last remains scholarship to his brother.

The traffic on the Hutch in that area is a mess now, imagine it with an event at a stadium holding 20k!

His mother posted it.  Why is it so hard to accept?   He left because he wanted guaranteed playing time.

What his mother posted and your strained interpretation of it along with your analysis of a conversation that you were not a part of are two different things.

Looks like the Rams run ruled La Salle 12-1. I will leave the details deservedly to TXRAM.

For the record:

1. My post wasn't about any kid committing to Fordham, SLU or any other school. One poster indicated that SLU was making offers to kids in our back yard, and I just posted that they were doing it with Van Macon and had a nice facility.
2. For the record, my son graduated for Marquette a couple of years ago. I haven't drawn comparisons to the sports programs at his graduate school, because they're not comparable.
3. Also for the record, I think poster's kids should be off-limits for criticism.
4. If I talked about Marquette sports in relation to Fordham's it's because I've been there, done that, seen it first hand. I'm not making stuff up.
5. This is really tiresome, and if this Board was intended to drum up interest in Fordham basketball, it's having the opposite effect.

John,

Just want to let you know that I have always found your posts and your sense of humor to be amongst the best posts on this board.  Please don't let anything and/or anyone deter you from continuing to post.

Didn't he star in a John Hughes teen movie?
15  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: How Others Get Students To games on: May 02, 2017, 03:25:16 pm
I didn't think you had to be into sports to enjoy the experience of a college sporting event. That's the problem though imo... we don't provide an experience.

Exactly.
16  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: How Others Get Students To games on: May 01, 2017, 12:37:23 pm
If you want the snowflakes to attend games tell them the RHG is a safe space and that everyone who attends the game will get a participation trophy.
17  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Softball / Re: Softball vs Dayton 4/29-4/30 on: April 29, 2017, 09:55:47 pm
Looks like they control their own destiny.  Win out in the conference and it does not matter what anyone else does.
18  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Softball / Re: Softball vs GW 4/22, 4/23 on: April 28, 2017, 11:36:27 am
Interested in TXRam's take but I think we have to have 45+ wins and make it to the finals for consideration as an at large bid.
19  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Softball / Re: Softball vs Bonnies 4/19 on: April 21, 2017, 11:09:29 am
Why play only one team twice at all?  Is there some limit as to the amount of conference games you can play?   
20  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: AA to UCONN on: April 18, 2017, 04:50:27 pm
Best advice my daughter and I were ever given came from her travel coach who reminded everyone looking to play ball in college that as soon as you step on campus as Freshmen, your coach and his staff are out there trying to find someone to replace you.
21  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: AA to UCONN on: April 18, 2017, 04:35:57 pm
How many football players transfer out each year?  I honestly have no idea but I do not read that there is this mass exodus every year but maybe I dont pay attention.  Help me out here: how many football players transferred out of Fordham after the 2016 season?  I am interested to know.  

That makes no sense.  Disloyalty would have been telling him we are not renewing your scholarship.  Disloyalty would have been lying to him saying he would play so he could get him to stay and then sit him on the bench in a break glass in case of emergency case.

Your use of the word "loyalty" is misplaced. I have already said JN telling Suarez what his honest assessment of his talent and place on his team is commendable.  To me those are signs and traits of JN's character.  Loyalty has nothing to do with it.
22  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: AA to UCONN on: April 18, 2017, 03:53:53 pm
How about his mother posting on this board?

A quote from Mapi in a thread she started:

I'm Manny's mother, I wrote the post, Manny and I love Fordham, Manny  believes JN is a good coach, but  JN  was very clear went told Manny he was not going to play because ahead of him was CS Canty, Rhoomes and the new recruit  . My son is not going to sit another year, he is going to play for David because Adelphi is in a good D2 conference and he will play immediately, Manny never thought  for one second to leave Fordham; he had two tough years one of them with injuries and now is one hundred percent, at the VCU game that's him, so for those that think for one second that Manny's plan was to leave Fordham  let me tell you he is in pain for leaving it was a good learning experience, but his is looking forward to a good future with Duke.
Once again THANK YOU.
GO RAMS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mom's own words: "Manny  believes JN is a good coach, but  JN  was very clear went told Manny he was not going to play because ahead of him was CS Canty, Rhoomes and the new recruit  ." are a lot closer to the truth than your spin. JN very clearly told him he was not going to play as there were four players ahead of him, a clear signal that he was not wanted. So much for loyalty.

I have nothing wrong with JN or any new coach giving the players he is inheriting an honest assessment of their talent and where they stand with him.  As a matter of fact, I think it is commendable to be honest with the remaining players so they can make a decision that is best for them. What I disagree with is this notion of "loyalty" and "obligation" as it has nothing to do with AA or any player.  
23  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: AA to UCONN on: April 18, 2017, 03:40:18 pm
What I posted is fact not rumor.  You can believe it or not.  Similar conversation to Neubauer and Manny actually.  Anderson stayed and became a better player. 

Without a credible source, I choose not to believe it.
24  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: AA to UCONN on: April 18, 2017, 03:32:02 pm
He was not run off.  He was told you may not get a lot of playing time.  He chose to leave instead of staying and proving himself.  His choice. 

How do you know what he was told?  Were you a part of the meeting?
25  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: AA to UCONN on: April 18, 2017, 03:29:16 pm
Where were all these moral high roaders when Manny Suarez was runoff. Young man had a 3.5 index and played / practiced thru a shoulder injury .

The same place when we ran DBA off the team.  Loyalty is a two way street and does not apply.  If you want loyalty then don't recruit over a kid once he signs. If you want loyalty then have your coach commit in writing that he will stay all four years that you are there. AA graduated within four years and chose to play his remaining year of eligibility at a program that is way beyond Fordham. Why not?  I wish him well.

We are constantly rolling the boulder uphill.

Great, great job by Fr. McShane and the BOT. Cowards.

Frightening glory!

What is her injury?
28  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Coach Hurley on: April 07, 2017, 02:59:13 pm
   Spreading the Good News and serving as living witnesses is arguably more impactful precisely when the audience is non-practicing. 

+1  The students I have had the pleasure to work with are not viewed as "square pegs" (no disrespect to the TV show) trying to fit into "round holes", but young men being taught Catholic values and principals that they hopefully carry with them throughout their lives.
29  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Coach Hurley on: April 07, 2017, 02:50:54 pm
I ask purely out of curiosity, but what do struggling catholic schools like St. anthonys, rice, power. brooklyn prep, do to close that a school like regis does to stay open?  I mean regis covers the cost of every kid>  The costs must be astronomical.  I will hangup and listen.

Regis is a different animal altogether.  It has always been tuition free, you need to pass an entrance examination and it has a tremendous reputation.

Greater good is fine. Does the Catholic church marry people in Church who are not Catholic? Do we have non Catholic funerals or baptisms? You think its a good idea for Scientologists or Muslin kids or Orthodox Jews to be going to a Catholic high school? What do they do during the weekly mass or the pre-class prayer?  I cant come to school this week because it is Ramadan or Passover or some other religious holy week?

I dont care what someone's religion is or isnt but Catholic school is just that.   If there are not enough practicing Catholics to attend, then either close or simply change your mission to be a private school for all without a diocesan or Catholic affiliation. Populations change, especially in urban areas.   Forcing non Catholics into Catholic schools just to stay open is wayward of the mission of Catholic schools, in my opinion. Im sure many disagree.

For example, the mission statement of Holy Trinity Diocesan HS in Long Island:

"It is the mission of Holy Trinity High School to be a living witness to the Gospel of Jesus Christ as a community of faith, hope and love.  We seek to educate the whole person: mind, heart, soul and body and to motivate all students in the pursuit of truth and academic excellence, preparing them for future educational opportunities and service to the Church and to the world. "


From Mt. St. Michael's Belief statement on it's webpage:

A Catholic school exists first and foremost to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ.

 
 

The 1950s just called, they want your views on Catholic education back.
