There's a not so subtle difference between critical, which at times is certainly deserved and I welcome as long as the poster knows what he or she is talking about, and flat out stupid or, worse, insulting.  The Zarko comments, and the remarks of yours that I mocked earlier, fall into the latter two categories and demonstrate a complete lack of understanding of team sports, competition and college basketball.  I summed it up for you when I posted there are two types of people then cited the well thought out replies of other posters who provided stats, well articulated perspective and, sadly, just plain old common sense to refute your claims.  Since then all you've done is talk in circles without providing any examples to support your original post.  In this case, the fact that someone thinks statistics and team accomplishments are sufficient to determine Zarko's worth at this level and his value to the team are just plain idiotic, and if people are going to make public comments like that, then they have to be prepared to get criticized themselves.  Am I still in my safe space, snowflake?

All you are is a cheerleader .. rah rah rah .. not sure what your true motive is but there is something there because you fly off the handle anytime someone questions JN or makes any type of negative comment..

I've complimented this program many times and I'm critical when it's deserved. I'm not a blind cheerleader like you. We don't have to respond to one another anymore we obviously will never agree so take care ..

Does anyone have time to start a "Stupid Post of the Day" thread, or a poll for us to periodically vote on the dumbest comments seen on Fordhamfans.com?

So anyone who has anything critical to say about a tenth place team with a losing record is making stupid comments? I guess we should just come on here and praise everybody and everything , would that make you happy?

Rich93 tackled that one before I could get to it.

Yea he threatened to beat me up after school

Ok snowflake stay in your safe space hiding in anonymity while acting the part of the tough guy.   Big bad Madram breaking out the snowflake and safe space overly used trope as he hides in his own safe space behind a computer screen because he is himself a snowflake.  Take that weak crap elsewhere son.  


Ok meet me at the bike rack 3pm after school and we will settle this once and for all.. Jesus settle down .. again the only person claiming to be a tough guy is you. I am simply posting non threatening messages on a sports message board and here you come all crazy

Says the guy hiding behind a moniker.   Kaup uses his real name here, unlike you he is not cowering behind a computer.  A lot of fake tough guys in America these days.   Cheesy

What are you 12 years old? I only see one fake tough guy here and that's you . I'm talking sports on a fan message board not challenging anyone to a fight , grow up this isn't junior high.

Dear God.  You give "those who don't [get it]" a bad name.

Ok snowflake , keep living in your safe place where everyone gets a trophy and a hug for simply showing up. This is D1 basketball not intramurals , you are what your record says you are. There are no prizes for 10th place.
7  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Not sure how people think this was a good season on: March 20, 2017, 07:02:45 pm
No need to apologize.  My point is that you tend to make outlandish statements about the program that have no basis in reality, that are invariably corrected or refuted by other posters.  I thought I was pretty clear.  You're entitled to your opinion, but you make these statements of fact and they're usually absurd.

How is anything I said outlandish? We were a flat out joke in the non conference schedule , a complete disaster one of the worst teams in the country at that time. We turned it around a little but still finished the Season with a losing record and worse in just about every measurable. Factor in embarrassing losses to Lasalle , st Bonnie's, Richmond etc.. not sure how anything I said is that outlandish

Dude, at the beginning of December you declared Neubauer had driven this program into the ground, and that hypothesis was summarily destroyed.  Three months later you're refuting a claim that, as far as I can tell, no one ever made.  I cited posts from Richie68 and Rich93 to rebut your most recent delusion, and we can add Drunkle's post to that list.  Two types of people in this world, Madram ...

Yes I did declare that after the non conference disaster , losing to Manhattan college and sacred heart. Showed some flashes in A-10 playbbutbstoll finished with a losing record in the a-10 worse than last year so what's your point?

I'm sorry that you don't agree with me
9  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Not sure how people think this was a good season on: March 18, 2017, 10:01:06 pm
Did I miss a thread or poll somewhere?  Who declared this season a success or "good?"  Stupid post.  Others make valid points, but Richie68 and Rich93 seem to be the only ones offering a reasonable evaluation of our season.  There are two types of people in this world - those who get it and those who don't.  If you can't see the progress our program is making, then ...

So tell me how being worse in almost every single measurable is progress? Please tell me.. as much "progress" as you think we are making , you realize that the rest of the A-10 is not just standing still right? Dayton, VCU , Richmond , rhodyb, Davidson oh yea they recruit also
10  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Not sure how people think this was a good season on: March 18, 2017, 04:09:37 pm
The title of this thread and the OP's post is a straw man. I do not recall anyone saying it was a good season or a success.

Really you don't? Go back and read posts and the most recent one about grading this season as a B..
11  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Not sure how people think this was a good season on: March 18, 2017, 09:24:51 am
Everybody get ready to gang up on me but I think we need to take a hard look at this season and someone needs to tell me why we are so excited and optimistic about this seasons results. We actually got worse this year which is never a good sign in a coaches second year.

Say what you want but not sure how people are grading this season as a success. Let's look at the facts..

Overall record was much worse this year. Went from 17-14 last season to 13-19 this season (not good )

Conference record Took a step back at 7-11 this year compared to 8-10 last year ( had some good wins this year vs Rhodes island etc.. but also had many embarrassing losses)

Home record was 14-5 last year compared to 8-9 this year ( terrible home season)

Non conference record 9-4 last year compared to 6-8 this year ( sooo bad)

Scoring margin this year was -3.3 compared to +2.0 ( for you math majors that's worse than last year )

Not sure how people are grading this season as A success so please tell me.

If you're going to just blame everything on injuries you better come with something to back it up such as the injuries of everyone else they played and who was hurt during which games and why you feel that was the sole reason.

Anyway let's hear it ..
12  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: If liberty can do it than why can't we? on: February 17, 2017, 11:15:20 am
No reason at all to even consider FBS for Fordham.  It brings nothing to the table.  This has been a goal for Liberty for 30 years.  Good for them.

If we can just get the PL to pick up a couple of more schools I think we're in a great place.  Richmond may take a look at some point.  Maybe a Monmouth, Duquesne, Elon or Charleston Southern or VMI...  Get the conference to 10 and I think we'd make some noise. 

You say "they" have wanted to go fbs for over 30 years? Who is they? I doubt the same administration is still in place since the 1980's plotting a move to division 1 football.... so what suddenly changed after the 30 years of planning and hoping to go D1. Why now ?
13  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / If liberty can do it than why can't we? on: February 17, 2017, 07:51:27 am
just read that liberty is making the jump to FBS. Big move and very surprising but shows that it can be done at smaller private schools. Especially now with the era of mega conferences these lower tier fbs conferences like the sun belt , c USA need schools like this to survive .

Just saying it an he done .
14  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: A-10 road wins by coach on: February 05, 2017, 06:03:26 pm
Madram is the Debbie Downer of FordhamFans. A real glass is half empty kind of guy. I suspect that he's the kind of jerk who goes to NASCAR races and hopes to see a fatal crash.

I'm sorry that I don't consider  4-6 conf 10-13 overall "a rolling freight train". If you follow my posts you would know I have been complementary of the team but  I'm sorry if I don't view  losing records as some kind of major accomplishment. I'm sorry if I want to raise the standards and not allow everyone to think that we are soingvsomething special by barley finishing out of last place.

You can pretend that everything is great. Hey why dont we give JN a ten year extension. Let's not address the facilities or the fact that we lost to Manhattan college. Nah things are great we're a rolling freight train and things are great !! Can't wait till next year

[quote author=85

To think we lost 9 of 10, then had injuries and now have this freight train rolling.....just proves how good of a coach this guy really is...COY possibly in A-10.

4-6 in conference and 10-13 o we all is not exactly a rolling freight train .. why are our standards so low?
16  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Something happening here? on: January 21, 2017, 10:14:23 pm
Yea I know I'm usually the guy who is critical of our beloved rams only because I want better but something is happening here.  3 quality A-10 wins in last 4 games. Makes you a bit angry about how poor the first half of the season was but could we have found something here?

Unfortunately I couldn't watch tonight but are we a threat from here on out ?
17  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Chase finishes 4th for the Walter Payton Award on: January 20, 2017, 08:20:52 pm
NFL released the list of underclassmen eligible for the Draft in April. No Chase listed.

18  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Ram Football History DVD Now Available on: January 18, 2017, 04:21:51 pm
I don't even own a DVD player anymore. In all honestly, I don't even own a laptop - just a tablet. Is that weird? I mean.. my job provides me with a laptop, but unless I'm working from home, that is docked in my office.

Just be happy it wasn't a VHS tape

Does the University allow the athletic fundraisers to cultivate any alum with an interest in athletics or do they need clearance for the heavy hitters?

Any and all clearance for heavy hitter donations must flow through rambackers private messaging. After PMing rambacker ,Than and only than are you able to donate to Fordham athletics
20  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Coach Moorhead to UConn ? on: January 09, 2017, 03:49:29 pm
I already explained that. The conversation had turned to Franklin's likelihood to be considered for an NFL job by the time you replied. You used Saban and Meyer as examples. Saban did poorly in the NFL and Meyer seemingly is never mentioned for NFL jobs.

I do not think Franklin's style would translate well to the NFL. I do however think his style is very good for college.

Both Saban and Myer could have any NFL job they wanted right now. NFL teams have been begging both of them to come to the NFL
21  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Defensive staff movements on: January 07, 2017, 07:03:04 pm
I could not agree more. I see this as an opportunity.

The poor defense over the past few seasons has much more to do with the style of offense JM and AB play along with the philosophy of stacking your skill on offense rather than who the defensive coaches are. While I do believe an experienced Def coordinator can help, if the head coaches philosophy is to score 45 a game and hope to give up 44 than we won't see much difference.
22  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Coach Moorhead to UConn ? on: January 06, 2017, 07:06:12 pm
Dabo swinney is a rah rah guy also right ram spouse? He's never been a coordinator and never called plays for Clemson. He yells and screams and cheerleads on the sideline he's a horrible coach too right? Jim harbaugh he really yells and screams and he doesn't call offense or defense he's a rah rah guy too can't be a good coach right?
23  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Defensive staff movements on: January 06, 2017, 02:54:52 pm
UConn: Fordham defensive coordinator Jon Wholley will join Randy Edsallís staff reports Pete Thamel of SI.

Elon: Fordham defensive line coach Jerrick Hall will join the staff at Elon per Pete Thamel of SI.
24  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Coach Moorhead to UConn ? on: January 06, 2017, 02:07:01 pm
Just for clarification, PSU got all of its schollies back.  As far as Franklin goes, yes, he is a rah-rah coach, but I think that goes over well with many college players.  And he won't be the first successful HC to rely on assistants to do a majority of in-game work. 

That said, I'd be stunned if he even got an NFL interview.  His act will not go over with NFL players, and NFL HC's have too much on their plates to delegate so much to coordinators.


Yes they got all scholarships back but it takes a few years to build back your numbers , talent and reputation after a scandal like this.

Nobody here is an NFL GM so none of us know for sure who is interviewing or will get a job but Franklin was getting NFL interest when he was at Vandy won 9 games in back to back season at vandy and just took penn state to the rose bowl , won the b10 and he is a minority coach so he gets extra attention because of the Rooney rule.

So call him why you will a cheerleader a rah rah guy or whatever you want but the guy wins games in difficult situations. There are plenty of "X and 0" geniuses that become head coaches and it's a disaster.
25  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Coach Moorhead to UConn ? on: January 05, 2017, 09:11:27 pm
That would be correct.  Franklin is lucky to be where he is and no chance he goes to pros.  on that prediction madram is just ...mad

Both you and ram spouse are clueless. Franklin took Vanderbilt to back to back 9 win seasons and just took a disfunctional penn state coming off probation and low scholarship numbers to the rose bowl. And oh he's beat Ohio state and won the big ten championship...

So yes he will draw major interest from the NFL and already has you idiots .. just because a few clowns on the Fordham message board "don't like him" doesn't change what he's accomplished
26  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Duquesne @ Fordham - Official Game Thread - A10 Conference Opener! on: December 31, 2016, 07:50:05 pm
It has to happen with this guy. Has to.

I think what we all liked about this hire was that JN seemed to be a pure coach from a great background of X/O guys. He was not some hot shot pro or the NYC recruiter but a real hoops coach who would develop guys and give us an advantage with a system that had been proven at West Virginia and Michigan by his old boss and he has success at his last school.

I'm not seeing any of this now. All I see is an arrogant coach who cleaned house brought in his guys to run things his way(which I'm ok with if you win). In order to give him the benefit of the doubt , I need to see something that tells me that next year will be better.

Tell me we have A-10 caliber players that are a year away , tell me guys are buying in to the system but I dont see any of that. You can't go into year 3 and still be young .. 3 years in hoops is a lifetime

Websites mean nothing! cant recruit D1 players with a high school gym. Build an arena , start there
