Fortunately you don't get to determine the qualifications of a true fan.  How many endorsements has your family established for Fordham?  Want to compare?  I back my fan status with multiple checks. 

Fortunately you don't get to determine the qualifications of a true fan either, especially since you don't even understand the difference between a fan and a donor

Maybe you give a lot of money, maybe you give more than me, if you do bravo

Don't expect me to be impressed or to take direction from someone bragging on an anonymous internet board

You might think your money is well spent on honoring Frank's family, I don't share your opinion
2  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Why the RHG is to be Named for McGlaughlin on: August 16, 2017, 05:04:07 pm
Very happy that it is being named for an alumnus who actually graduated Fordham, unlike the "stepping stone loser" variety.

Besides the McLaughlin and his family you might be the only person happy to see this

True fans of Fordham are not happy

As someone on this board used to say,"my sediments exactly "

I hope I don't regret this or encourage anyone but "my sediments exggactly "

I know, you didnt light the fire, it started above you in the thread.  The usual take cheap shots at Fordham for no good reason started shortly after the very positive news story about a very popular ex Ram. Unreal.

Exactly, we can be happy for Jean, who worked long and hard to become a head coach, without comparing any of it to Fordham or being critical of our program
5  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: San Jose State to hire Jean Prioleau as head coach on: August 05, 2017, 09:31:44 am
Good luck to Jean!

Very happy for him and well deserved

This will be a great experience for the players, terrific team bonding and hopefully will give Coach a jump start on preparations for the season

Curious about why Hughes transferred, the Big 10 is a strong conference but Rutgers is not a good program
8  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Recruiting Update on: July 17, 2017, 12:44:41 pm
This is the new reality of college BB and recruiting, I like the idea of bringing International players to the most international of cities.  I do think we need to find a balance between domestic, foreign and NYC area players but I do think that will be fluid

Most important thing is to get the level of player that can succeed in the A10
9  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Ivan Raut signs with Fordham on: July 12, 2017, 11:10:07 am
Welcome to Fordham Ivan

I look forward to learning more about your abilities and hope that you have a great career at Fordham
10  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Players I think we should look into. The Recruiting Speculation Game on: July 10, 2017, 02:33:42 pm
I read the story and found the way the coach went about it to be very strange

Was there some underlying reason not to renew a scholarship for the only returning player, at this late date?

Unless the coach found a four star players under a rock it does not seem to benefit the team or the player


It is not fair, but he does indeed have to sit. He should appeal to the NCAA if for no other reason than to make a point.

He should absolutely appeal, the player did not choose to leave, he is being forced, he should have the right to play immediately but what does the NCAA care about doing the right thing
11  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: DePaul transfer Erten Gazi has committed to Fordham, per a source. on: June 28, 2017, 10:31:43 am
Give JN a blow for the first year recruiting. But -- here's the concern -- the past two seasons, we've extended dozens of offers to domestic HS and prep players, and received a single acceptance (Ohams).

Yes, it is a concern

But, every school at our level and even some larger schools, extend dozens of offers, it is the nature of the process, but certainly most wind up up closing more of the deals that we have

I will say though that I understand JN's preference to be transfers and JUCO's and not as many HS players,  based on his track record at his previous school and he has signed those kind of players
12  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: DePaul transfer Erten Gazi has committed to Fordham, per a source. on: June 26, 2017, 05:45:52 pm
Does he sit out a year?

I would expect so and that he would have two years left to play

If that is the case then we would have a maximum of 11 players (the 10 currently on the roster plus one more to come) eligible next year plus the two transfers sitting out next year
13  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Softball / Re: Softball Assistant Coach Leaving on: June 22, 2017, 07:17:04 pm
Scott, most immediately would be 2, for next year's seniors, Shaw (IF and power hitter) and Figueroa (OF and slapper).  Yes, scholarship or partial.  Softball gets to split scholarships up.  I think unless one goes through coaches, the player has to initiate contact with the coach prior to the end of their Junior year.  One often sees the best Texas players verbally committing as Sophomores.  Makes it tough for Bridget unless she sees them in one of the 3 tournaments she goes to in the summer.

Odd coincidence in coaching announcements.  Former Ram Kayla Lombardo just announced she's going to be an assistant at Lehigh, then, within days, Reese Mariconda announces she's going to GT.  Wonder if Lombardo was considered for Mariconda's job.  Both were infielders.  Would love to steal Jen Mineau from St. Joe's as pitching coach and move Gabby Leuty over to the other assistant.

That sounds like a great idea, both could work from their strengths.  It would also be great if Jen could find a pitcher or two at her talent level Wink
14  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Sailing / Re: RAMS FINISH HUGE AT COED DINGHY NATIONAL SAILING CHAMPIONSHIP on: June 03, 2017, 12:48:35 pm
Joe,

Congratulations to the team, the coaches and you.

I recall you mentioning many times that when you and your former teammates restarted the team that you had a 10-15 year plan.  I am going to say that even you could not have imagined how successful your efforts would be and that I think you exceeded the heights you were striving for.

Sailing has become one of Fordham's most successful programs and we are proud of you and the team
15  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Sailing / Re: COLLEGE SAILING'S NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP ROUND - FORDHAM QUALIFIED! on: June 02, 2017, 01:00:41 pm
Good luck to the team and Joe this is an amazing story
16  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Pre Pre Season X & O on: June 01, 2017, 11:31:06 am
We definitely need another big in this system.
Agreed, I just hope we hear something soon for my own selfish reasons
17  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Bryan Dunston $2.3mill contract on: May 30, 2017, 03:05:56 pm
Glad to see he continues to do well

Good luck!
18  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Football Schedules 2017-18-19 on: May 26, 2017, 11:07:34 am
If we could steal a win over EWU that would really be a season changing type victory
19  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: All time best Fordham Starting five on: May 26, 2017, 11:06:14 am
I would pick both Haynes and Herzog over Green
20  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: MANNY SUAREZ 44 on: May 24, 2017, 12:50:23 pm
I wish Manny luck at Creighton and I am happy for his success

I do have to wonder how long we will be talking about his departure two years ago, he seems to have moved on, why can't we?

The reasons why he left are in the past and certainly cannot be changed, why bother rehashing them?

21  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Recruiting Update on: May 22, 2017, 11:50:50 am
Yes that actually is interesting. A new recruiting tool, I think we started this trend at Fu and now others may be following suit?  Changes the value of a scholarship.

No wait till someone tells you it is in the wrong thread.

I think you are right, it could be a new recruiting tool.

The game has changed and every coach needs to figure out how to turn the new reality into an advantage.

Remember when Calipari and other smart coaches figured out how to make one & done's work for them?  Now even Coach K will take those players

Iona had a nice run a few years back by being one of the first to figure out how to make  saving scholarships for transfers from higher conferences work for them and then pitching themselves as a place to transfer down to in order to get a shot at the NCAA's, now other schools do the same.

You could have coaches telling players at a higher or a borderline level that playing for them for a year will allow them to transfer to a better program

And as the Post says they could pitch the graduate in three years and move on as another tool, a little tricker since it it s harder work for a student

The point is that all those strategies appeal to a player's desire to eventually get to a higher level

I am sure that the most creative coaches will find a way to make this work for them, after all they want to get to a higher as well

22  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Recruiting Update on: May 19, 2017, 04:22:16 pm
Jake Fay is a graduate transfer at Hartford. I think we should sign him just so we can get 85's reaction posts.

I had forgotten about him and when you posted this I was curious about his career at Hartford,

........without going into a lot of detail it looks like he was injured a lot and never scored a point for them during his career.  I don't mean to be critical of him but you really have to wonder what Pecora saw in him that he locked him up by taking his brother too

Well, ancient history and good luck to him
23  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Disappointed ! on: May 19, 2017, 11:22:17 am
I am withholding judgment until we know that recruiting for next season has finished

The recruiting game has changed, international players, the rise of transfers, the focus on ,ore national instead of local recruiting, completely different ballgame from even five years ago and every coach has to adjust

I do think that JN talking about his recruiting philosophy would help us understand better what he hopes to accomplish and I wouldn't mind a leak or two beyond a Twitter post that " Good news is coming". Could be something as simple as a background conversation that indicates we are recruiting Euro post players or something similar, that would help some fans step back from the ledge
24  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Recruiting Update on: May 17, 2017, 05:29:43 pm
The assumption here was that because of social media we'd learn early in the signing period of FU signees.  We're at the end of the signing period and haven't heard much. 

Yes, but there are two parts to this, the players and the coaches.

We did not hear much about or from  Portley & Evans before their commitments.  You can't do much to control what a potential recruit or their friends say but Coaches can stick to the rules.  I understand that a coach is not permitted to comment on a recruit until a NLI is signed but some will speak off the record to a reporter or blogger.  I think Pecora and his staff were prolific off the record sources, clearly JN and his staff operate differently

Considering all the time we spent talking about the rumors that came out of Pecora's staff I kind of like JN's approach, of course I would like more info but nothing I can do about that
25  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Recruiting Update on: May 17, 2017, 03:45:02 pm
May have been that way all along.  We will have to wait and see. 

I think so, as others have mentioned, you don't hire Ali Ton unless you want him to bring in players from overseas, it wasn't like we were going to have him recruit Iowa HS players for us

For all we know JN & AT might have tied up a couple of Intl players a month ago
26  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Memorial Field stadium on: May 16, 2017, 05:21:30 pm
Just crazy the way an unbuilt/unfunded stadium project keeps increasing in size, by the time this thread runs its course some posters will be writing that we missed the chance to play in a 50,000 seat with gold plated seats Roll Eyes
27  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Memorial Field stadium on: May 16, 2017, 11:34:30 am
So, improving JCF and potentially taking advantage of a 25k facility (if built) are mutually exclusive? Not logical.

Stop, the project as announced has a seating capacity of 15K, not 25K

http://www.lohud.com/story/news/local/westchester/mount-vernon/2017/05/05/memorial-field-plan-mount-vernon-ny/101304672/


Where did the extra 10K seats come from?

The project is unlikely to be built as announced, adding an extra 10K seats makes it even more unlikely
28  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Recruiting Update on: May 15, 2017, 12:28:30 pm
Slanina still hasn't shown he's not foul prone enough to play more than 20 mins a game.  He only passed the 25 minute mark 3 times last year.  That being said, I like Bunting, and think he and Slanina can make a solid tandem.  Ohams played well against VCU, but I think he has more upside as a 3, and he's giving up 30-50 lbs playing against most 4's in the A10.  I don't think he can play 35 mins a game at the 4.  Even if he can, what happens if someone gets hurt, which seems to be the case with this team every year?  Bottom line, we need a big who can step in and play some serious minutes.       

I agree, we need a big to play minutes at the 4/5 especially when you take into account Slania's foul problems

The open spots should ideally go to a big and a wing
29  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Memorial Field stadium on: May 15, 2017, 11:43:20 am
Crazy to think of this as an option for us

The field has been closed since 2009, the city does not seem to be able to get its act together and the site has been floated as an option for NYCFC and quickly shot down as too small (15K) seats.  If NYCFC with money from the Yankees and the even richer Manchester City does not want to sink money into what would is now a almost a sinkhole then how would Fordham move this forward?

If this was a viable plan then sure take a look, but they have been floating proposals for a number of proposal for years and have gotten nowhere, it does not seem worth out time to get involved at this point

Hard to believe Mt. Vernon will ever build anything worth our taking a look at or for that matter anything at all
