by the way, those football offices are still locked into 1980's. 

Larry Glueck called, he wants his office back.

As you can see from the introductory credits, it is a combination of a couple freelance folks and Joe DiBari/interns.  You actually see JD within the first shot.

It will be more interesting to view, as the season progresses, insight into the postgame results, managing academics, and rebounding from an injury etc.  Also, I guarantee you that meeting when he turned off the mic was with an NFL scout or team representative, which was an interesting piece.

You would think this might have been pitched to SNY or MSG so they could produce or broadcast, much like the PJ Fleck Show, Notre Dame, UCONN etc.  they all have them as part of their marketing strategy. 

At the very least, could we structure a deal digitally with those companies and have them host it on their sites???

Not sure why people dislike this type of coverage.  AT LEAST IT IS SOMETHING!  Obviously, the BOT, Admin and our Alum are not dropping $$ to market athletics or continue to build our programs, so we have to do with what we have to market the university. 

It is 2017 folks, not 1984.  Wake-up.  Applaud the young man.

Correct, no issue with Soccer as the men are on the road and the women play Sunday at home, so what was the background here?  By the way, we play at Bryant 2017 and at Bryant 2019 which is the middle of 3 straight Road Games the first quarter of the season...very strange scheduling strategy.
5  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Fordham @ CCSU on: September 05, 2017, 01:15:36 pm
EWU coming to New York is probably more about them interested in exposure on the east coast - perhaps... or just want to give the kids a travel to NYC as a recruiting item.  I do not think it is not an equal debate.

We have never played CCSU so why are we traveling to their home first rather than next year?  I can understand one of the two games being on the road, but both??  Is this more of a scheduling issue on our part for Soccer etc.?

The donation was made after the passing of Fr. Brooks whom was instrumental in downgrading HC Football in the patriot league.  Was this donor waiting for that moment?

I do not think Mevis was doing the placekicking on Friday but I could be wrong.

Also, random question, but why are on the road vs. CCSU & Bryant?   A lower division school should be coming to the Bronx rather than us going up there to CCSU - nonetheless, this is a big game for them and even bigger for us. 

By the way, spoke with an old Holy Cross Football Alum this past weekend (played late 60's and early 70's) - he stated that the HC Athletic Department raised $100M and their facilities in the next year will be on par with top 10 FCS schools.   I am concerned the boulder is running downhill for our FB Program (and overall athletics) with the lack of financial support; i.e. we cannot raise 2.5M for new offices. 

It is an arms race at the FBS and FCS levels.

Groundhog Day for Fordham University, Athletic Promotion and Marketing.  What is the plan to promote this team and their season?  My assumption is all of the social media is being driven by the coaches and the director of football ops.  Where is the BOT with their $$ for marketing that they provided the hoops team a few years ago.

Why not rent a ferry to the West Point Game next week?  Instead of just a pre-game tailgate...weak.  I know a number of folks would have been interested in that type of transport rather than fight LD traffic + a late night drive after the game.

My hope, even as small as it is, but costly, that the team has received some newly designed uniforms for 2017.  Colgate has home/away helmets, HC has new additions to their uniforms...and approximately 70% of all FCS/FBS are promoting their new gear by way of social media.

1983 called, the Football Rams want their Ram horn helmets....
8  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: 2017 Predictions on: July 26, 2017, 11:11:48 am
Fair assessment.

If the team stays healthy, I believe this could be quite a memorable season.  Offense is loaded and the defense is a year-older, with a great mix of underclassmen and upperclassmen leadership - underrated within the league.

More concerned about game 1 at this point.  An EWU win could set-up nicely for an at-large if needed, although, goal is the PL Championship.

Any word on what the Athletic Department is doing to market the team this year?  One of the top football players at any-level is playing in the largest media market...  Let's get folks out in-force this year.

I actually spoke to an area scout from the phillies three-weeks ago and he mentioned keep this Fordham name, Jimmy Murphy, on the radar.  He stated they would take a flyer on him in the late rounds of the draft...so, he was getting some attention but not anywhere near the upper part of the draft.

Congratulations to Jimmy!  Go Rams.
10  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Chase Edmonds Offensive Player of Year 2016 (no)? on: November 22, 2016, 04:11:15 pm
Not voted offensive player of the year even though he led the entire FCS in rushing???  I would like to see the results of the voting.  So, we potentially have the Walter Payton Award winner, but he does not win the offensive player of year award for the league.

We should add the 3 scholarships and RS practice immediately.

11  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Fordham @ Lehigh 10/29 PL Title at stake on: October 25, 2016, 10:39:15 am
Statistically, we are quite even with Lehigh.  Given our history against them within the PL, this probably would be one of our biggest, at least top 3 all-time during the regular season.  If we want to continue to sustain this program for the foreseeable future, this is a "must win." - Two scholarship programs setting the bar for the next few years of whom will be elite.  Very good rivalry brewing.

Keep in mind, Clawson never beat Lehigh during 2002 or 2003. (or throughout his tenure).

Massella, beat Colgate on the road as an underdog during 2007 that facilitated our championship that season.

When Lot A is taken over for an academic building, tailgating will likely move to Eddies. Pop up Canopies and folding tables. No cars or generators, though. The U Caterer may have objections to food trucks.  Arthur Ave could be fun for tailgating, but it is a little too far.

Jeff Gray will never allow tailgating to set-up shop further into campus.  If an academic building is constructed, say good-bye to tailgating -

Par for the course of a lot people on this board.  -
15  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Chase trampling through records on: October 09, 2016, 10:33:25 am
Has to be top 3 Walter Payton Finalist for 2016 at this point.  Has almost 1000 yards rushing (944) in 5 games (9.0 YPC) with 6 regular season games to go - hopefully, he, and the offense can maintain their production.

16  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Throwback Uniforms on: September 12, 2016, 07:52:11 pm
Seemingly each week, a CFB Team has a throwback or special uniform, (and we no longer have the Liberty Cup Game); are there plans for a "special uniform" for the Holy Cross Game?  Anybody have an idea?

Also, what is the cost for such a switch for an in-season "special uniform?"

thanks.

transfers out do count against his graduation rate whether they graduate from another institution or not.  standard.
18  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Official Help Dave Roach Pick a New Coach Thread on: March 13, 2015, 11:18:24 am
It is about recruiting.  TP needs another 2/3 a10 talent recruits every year.  if you miss, as we have seen over the years, you fall right to the bottom of the stack.

SLU will be back up top within a couple of years because they have a pipeline of talent.  we cannot waste full-rides on non-a10 talent.  This league is very difficult. 
19  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Gray on: March 05, 2015, 11:16:03 am
Is it me, or how ridiculous is Jeff Gray sitting up in the corner loge chatting it up with a b-ball alum and paying no attention to the product in front of him.  This guy is a poison to the athletic program and the university.  Always has been, always will be. 

20 years and nothing to show for our marquee product.  Pathetic.  Oh, and he looks like McLaughlin now with his maroon sweater and extra lbs. 
20  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Lehigh's Game Notes vs FU on: October 24, 2014, 10:15:35 am

This is a huge game for the Rams and I do not think it will be an easy one.  Coen will have his team fired up to play the 12th team in the nation and defend Goodman - do not think for a second a motivational ploy will be that Fordham has never beaten the engineers at their home field.

Fordham Football Season Starts Tomorrow.  Let's get it done!

Next week a huge crowd is forming for the Red Raiders Game.  Expect a sellout.
21  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Talley Always Finds Something To Say... on: September 07, 2014, 08:26:48 am
Quote after the game: 

On the outcome and the strength of the team: I still don't know. I think we're pretty good. Coming off last week, you can say Syracuse looked passed us; I doubt it. You could say we played a great game and that we couldn't reproduce that. Or you could say we are really good. I guess I still don't know. Fordham has been in the scholarship business for six years. So I thought they were an upper level CAA team, but it didn't look like it with the result of the game. The book is still out on us. The defense is better and we are still breaking in some offensive linemen and we have to secure the extra point and field goals for sure because we are going to be in some wars during our league.
22  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Athletic Department Topics / Re: Jack Coffey Field Renovation on: August 19, 2014, 12:01:56 pm
Was there an announcement about a training facility being built.  I have not heard anything.  Details would be nice.

24  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Who should be the new Football Coach? on: December 04, 2011, 08:20:48 am
These both deserve interviews...

Caruso, not sure if he would be interested - but a phone call should be made at the very least.
Is the Grank show even proactive regarding these type of candidates?  Or just wait for the fax?
25  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Who should be the new Football Coach? on: November 28, 2011, 10:14:01 am
Glenn Caruso.  We need to think outside the box -- this guy will move-up fast in the coaching ranks over the next few years.  Think Tressel @ Youngstown, Kelly @ Grand Valley State.

1. Caruso
2. Cecc
26  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Glenn Caruso on: November 20, 2011, 09:23:42 am
Local Guy, although head coach at ST. Thomas in Minnesota - DIII National Coach of The Year -
http://www.tommiesports.com/ftbl/coaches/CarusoGlenn.html

This is the type of guy we need.  He will stay with Fordham.  Grew up in Greenwich, attended Greenwich Catholic, Greenwich High (believe captain sr. year - State Champs) and Ithaca. 

young, and well-prepared.  Dark Horse - but serious credentials.

where did you see this picture?

the team picture above the roster - on the football site.
28  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: FU's 2 deep for UCONN on: August 28, 2011, 12:06:54 pm
Did the team introduce new uniforms this season?  the picture of the team seems to suggest full white on the shoulders of the jerseys.
29  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Masella heading to UConn? on: January 12, 2011, 07:54:49 am
If this move is even a remote possibility, Frank better have a short-list in his drawer in preparation for the departure.  This is where AD's earn their money, or in frank's case, never really earn their money.

30  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Fordham Returns to MSG - 2011/2012 on: November 09, 2010, 05:04:55 pm

Fordham, which will play four games at the IZOD Center this season, has already locked up four more games next year at the arena. But what might be of even more interest to Rams' fans is the news that Fordham will return to Madison Square Garden next December, when they will play in the 2011 Holiday Festival.

While the return to the Garden hasn't been finalized as of yet, word is the deal is close to being completed.

It would be just the second game at the Garden for the Rams since 2002, after they faced Dayton there last season
