does any remember coach ed foley.  was hethe one who was picked to replace clawson cuz he was players choice?  and oc? and never head coach? he failed miserably.  Is breiner him?

No. Foley is at Temple and Breiner at Fordham. Breiner is definitely not Foley.

What I meant was are they the same archetype.  I know they're not the same actual person (though I've never seen them together).  I meant it as a way to spark convo about whether our football team is headed where that one went after Clawson less.  Both Foley and BReiner had similar backgroudns...wanted by the players, no prior head coaching experience, recrutiing guru, offensive asst, pourous defense.

We should all attend whatever dumb ceremony the school has planned and protest in some way.  My father, who didn't even work in athletics, is more deserving of the honor than Frank (this is not a request for that, as no of us WANT the court named for him, it is merely to illustrate a point).

Maybe we pool money together, buy every ticket to the game where the ceremony is, and not show up.  Or show up and walk out.  NOt sure.

A vacation on Fordham's dime...enjoy.  To be fair, nearly every school does this. But it doesn't sit well with me.

This is an interesting point and so far I've seen nothing. If I were in charge of marketing I would make a serious push to get chase invited to the heisman finalist list. Nope I'm not crazy we've seen it with Steve McNair , I remember Gordy lockbaum from holy cross also. Fact is he's the best player in fcs an all time record breaker by the time the season ends.

While I in no way ever believe he would win , I think the school can get a lot of publicity by running a "get chase to the downtown athletic club " type of promotion . Get Fordhams name out there . You would be supposed on how the story would grow legs .

Madram:

Not the craziest idea...It is in NYC at a place with Fordham connectioncs...You can pitch it to the org in several ways.  I believe the trophy itself was modeled on a former Fordham football player...You could try...trophy looking to return home angle (even though I know Chase wont win).  It would be a cool story.

Like the past two years, I am def interested.  I hope to make it, but I cannot commit until that week or the week prior.  My inlaws live out in suffolk county and a lot of it is contingent upon us being out there to visit them.

Good for him!  He and Bev had the best total careers of anyone I have watched play in RHG.


Did you ever see Jean Prioleau, he was special!

WHAT HAPPENED TO BASEBALL AT FORDHAM.  When I was a kid that team was a national power...Now they barely make the playoffs.  Was it the Patriot League move that killed them or getting rid of Gallagher?
16  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Memorial Field stadium on: May 15, 2017, 12:53:37 pm
as a joke.....

Fordham should take over this project and name it Frank McLaughlin field at JEff Gray stadium.

I grew up three block from this location in Pelham Manor.  My elitist, snob neighbors would NEVER let that much traffic come through their town.

WONT HAPPEN.

20  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: How Others Get Students To games on: May 03, 2017, 12:08:55 pm
Because the Xavier "model" gets brought up from time to time here it is. After going 22-8 in 1882-83 Xavier left dark, dank Schmidt Fieldhouse and moved two miles to Cincinnati Gardens where crowds were about the same as they went 22-11 but got larger and larger after they upset Ohio State in the first round of the NIT. By 1989-90 when they went 28-5 and made it to the Sweet Sixteen it became difficult to get a ticket and to visit the locker room it was now necessary to pass through a number of security personnel.They stayed in the Gardens for 17 years - most people don't realize that and believe it was a temporary move while a new arena was being built. At the Gardens they went 215-25 (.896%), had a trio of great coaches: Staak, Gillen & Prosser and some outstanding college stars and future pros. That's why students went to games and the Cintas Center got built.


The difference with xavier is that they are the only game in town...there is no PRO team.  They and the BEarcats are the only choices (and they are a good rivalry).  It isn't a realistic comparison...A better one would be depaul or st joes.

Saw this kid play and he reminds me of moorehead in a sense...he is very UNATHLETIC...He looks like he will fall over when he walks, but he can throw that bean around.  Mind you, I never saw moorhead in HS, basing it off what I saw at Fordham.

HE could revive BC if he wanted.

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.

A) Complete the following sentence:
Fordham Basketball should most closely resemble: Saint Joseph's, Siena, Rider, but instead it resembles La Salle, Canisius, Sacred HEart
B) The consummate Fordham Basketball player can be described as (low DI Caliber)
C) If I could change one thing about the program, it would be... (the commitment to winning by the administration).

Wasn't there a Polish center who left with TBC and ended up at Kentucky.  Lucas Obrzut or something like that?  Did he get any run there?  I stopped following him after he wore the maroon.

Also, what about Adrian Walton?  Where did he go after Fordham?

I love Rice as much as the next person, but You're nuts not to have picked Madison Rowland from Queens College.  She is an All American, led the nation in steals (for the 4th straight year), averaged nearly 20 PPG, and became the schools all time leading scorer...also they made the final 8.

28  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Athletic Department Topics / Re: Ask The AD with David Roach on: March 11, 2017, 11:02:37 pm
The school just doesn't a s&^% about athletics.  Frank and O'Hare got us into the PL and McShane only cares about listening to himself talk.  THis is a disgrace...How have we not made improving facilities the TOP priority.  How hard is it for our marketing folks to do something as simple as a ticket that gets you into the game and a voucher for dinner at an arthur ave restaurant.  Say 40$ is for a game and dinner at ann and tony's...just an example.  Something like that might get folks there.

Also, how stuck on the past are we.  I like that fact that our gym is unique...but its also Old, TOO OLD.  There is no shame in leaving its bones intact while changing it around.  And our most successful male sport (softball has been better) plays their home games in the outfield of a baseball diamond.

Speaking of tradition and being stuck in the past...I know we have the winningest baseball program of all time (I think Alexander Cartwright got the game from us), but can we drop baseball already and repurpose the space.  Baseball provides nothing to the university.  Just my thoughts.
29  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Moving forward 2017-18 on: March 11, 2017, 10:31:56 pm
I have to admit I followed the team from arm's length this season for a myriad of reasons (two kids under the age of five was the biggest...a lot of cartoons instead of hoops).  I think we need Slanina to take a big step forward.  With some work he could consistently be a 12 points, 8 rebound guy.  I know that a majority of the guys on the team "HATE" Neubauer.  Their words, not mine.  I dont know if/how that affects their play because I dont ask.  Id like to think they will play hard for each other, but Im not sure.  Also, we need something we haven't had ina  LONG time...a dependable shooter when the game is ont he line.  In the closing seconds of Mason, I couldn't think of anyone I KNEW would get the ball.  We need a Robin or a Prileau or a Stout.  A person who, when we needed a basket, wanted the ball and made the shot.

Looking forward to a good year next year!

The only people I think the court should be named for would be Anne Gregory or Johnny Bach.
