Yes. Which suggests there are very few financial packages.

Not doubting you, but that is very hard to believe. How could you ever sign anyone? Who is going to spend $70K a year after being recruited at the D1 level ?  If the aid packages are as suggest by AOC, then it's nowhere near the disparity that is implied.

Georgetown does not give football scholarships. That has been discussed on these boards for years.

$1.8M? Whats left after coaches salaries, insurance, facilities, travel costs and equipment?  Don't they count the financial aid packages within the budget ?

If you truly believe that facilities don't matter in college athletics than you are dumber than I thought. The fact that Fordham has been a doormat for years and years and years in both football and basketball and churned through multiple coaches shows that there is more to the story than just bad coaches. Sure we catch lightening in a bottle every few years in football and had a major advantage with scholarships under JM but have never sustained success in our history proves that facilities matter.

How can you consistently attract recurits when your facilities are so much worse than every other school we compete with?

Really tough guy...let's talk at a game face to face.  How about at the coaches office dedication....that will be in 2099 3 championships under 3 different coaches..pay attention..keep your head up on the ice...so lightning 3 times? no Fordham just made a bad hire..that's all

So just one school doesn't give full schollies?  That's silly.

Really? Here are the PL football budgets from 2016 per EADA reports:

Fordham, $6.0M
Colgate, $5.6M
Lafayette, $5.6M
Holy Cross, $5.1M
Lehigh, $4.9M
Bucknell, $4.5M
...
Georgetown, $1.8M


I have a serious question here. If Georgetown cost $70K a year and you have 60 full scholarships, how could your budget only be $1.8M?

Everything I've been saying has come to light as true.........

The entire fan base can watch the games and reach these conclusions. The season is a train wreck, one doesn't need to purport to have inside knowledge to see that. It is painfully obvious.  Hoping for better today.  Seems like a winnable game.

What are you intending to communicate by including this link?

You need an explanation ?   Ive been posting possible HCs here for a couple of weeks. 

I honestly think its a foregone conclusion on Breiner.
11  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Should Coach Breiner be on the "Hot Seat" on: October 21, 2017, 08:13:22 am
I don't see how the coach survives....to me the bigger issue is holding someone accountable for such a ridiculous hire and making sure there is accountability up the line going forward...this type of a hire never should have happened in the first place.......

Social media has changed things quite a bit for coaches, and it sucks.

A couple of ugly or purportedly ugly stories stories can get legs very quickly. And god forbid a player pulls out a cell phone and gets a clip of a coach using foul language.....it can be over for the coach..... .you need to be cognizant of this at all times as a coach.....and again.....we heard none of these stories last year when we were 8-3....but now some disgruntled players and parents, and these stories come out of the woodwork.....and they multiply....like the trouble with tribbles...

For some odd reason I kind of like PJD now.
14  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Starting Line Up '17-18' on: October 19, 2017, 11:33:54 am
If JC is playing the 3, it no longer is traditional. I meant to say "would be filled" rather than "will be filled", meaning that we don't play a traditional 1-5.  In your starting 5 I would say JC is the 2 and Tavares the 3, though, but in reality they are both 2's. My main point however, was that Ohams, Slanina and Bunting are not likely to be on the floor at the same time, though I was not sure if that was what 85 was suggesting or not.

I was  just lumping their 15 fouls together because we will likely use all 15 fouls nearly every game.  Slanina gets in foul trouble so early every game that Bunting will probably be in within the first 3-4 minutes. Its a real conundrum because Crawford's defense is so effective, you dont want to change it up too much..Taveras is going to have to step it up and help on the glass....but when you start putting these combos together, the team doesnt look half bad......
15  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Another Hit to the Defense? on: October 19, 2017, 08:35:16 am
Remember Leon Stephenson? 

The problem is those things can go away if you win 8 games. but once you start losing......they tend to resurface...and it can snowball on you as a coach.....for lack of a better example, you get Harvey Weinsteined......all of a sudden every player who ever had a minor beef or altercation with the coach suddenly comes out of woodwork and there is a post here, a post on facebook, and instagram, a new poster pops up on here and it can really go downhill quickly.....not easy these days.....we didnt see or hear any of this stuff last year.....not a word......now we are 1-6 and these things pop up every week......thank god im not coaching anymore...i see it at rink every day, even the elite Jr. A team, parents hovering after practice, ah coach...can i have a word? you dont oblige....then lose a few games in a row, the mudslinging starts on social media...
16  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Starting Line Up '17-18' on: October 19, 2017, 06:25:15 am
I'm more concerned about our defensive than offensive rebounding ability.  Ohams will be ++ on the off glass.  Also, yes we must hit free throws but first our FT rate needs to significantly improve, especially since the only guy whose rate was good is gone (Hawkins).  I think we will be better here, how much better is an open question.

Have to figure out a way to stay out of foul trouble, particularly Slanina and Ohams. A-10 calls those ticky tac fouls on the bigs when they come to help out up top. I know its part and parcel to coach Crawford's defense, and it works, but it does lead to a lot of un-necessary foul calls.

Ohams, Slanina, Bunting is a pretty decent , physical front court. Taveras has to help more on the glass this year. Heard Raut looks pretty good, not sure if he can rebound. Anyone?
17  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Another Hit to the Defense? on: October 19, 2017, 05:21:06 am
Coaching is different these days and to succeed, you need to adapt. We could wax poetic about the good old days but they are long gone. Look at Mike Rice and every other coach who dared yell at a player.....he tossed a basketball at a guy, who cares, ever see a Penders practice? 

The successful coaches these days are part recruiter, part x&o and part therapist.  It's how it is.  And social media can destroy a coach these days. You won't win being a hard ass, it doesn't work anymore.  These players are from an era of getting a participation trophy, not keeping score in little league and helicopter parents telling them how great they were doing.  Sports have changed radically and as a coach you have to adapt or you won't survive.

PL has very good lacrosse. Will the addition be a lax school?  URi doesnt fit the academic model, in my view.  Bryant would be a better fit there.
19  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Another Hit to the Defense? on: October 18, 2017, 09:40:40 am
Back in the day you spoke to your local boozetender about these things. Now you snapchat....sad.

We're playing the employees of Goya Foods? Will the concessionaires have queso blanco and chorizo? Ole!  Cheesy

Si'.
21  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Division III on: October 18, 2017, 07:44:26 am
As most of the PL coaches have been complaining about scheduling opponents, travel, budgets, and injuries, the PL is apparently thinking extending offers to several DIII programs to join the PL - preferably for ALL sported. Who, how or when is a mystery.

Sounds quite a lot different than the direction of Villanova, W&M, and Richmond.

Exactly who gave you this information from the PL ?   Right now the PL is pretty solid across the board with the exception of football.  Ironic since it was started as a football first conference but basketball has picked up and they are are doing pretty well in the other sports.  This sounds like wild speculation ...... and there is a process, as posted above, that means it is not possible to just extend offers. ..... probably the one school that might make sense would be Johns Hopkins.....I could see that happening down the road.....

Several players have regressed. Most notably Roberts and Adeyeye-yah!

Who is DD?

"Ram Rhythm?"  

Derrick Daniels?
24  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Another Hit to the Defense? on: October 17, 2017, 08:54:19 am


You know how many players were pissed when Massella moved DD to WR to make room for Skelton?

6 ?
25  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Another Hit to the Defense? on: October 17, 2017, 07:59:12 am
Same can be said for many of the older football posters who have gone underground. I'm sure that they will resurface at the first basketball hiccup.

How come none of the handful of folks with this "inside info" on how the coaching hire allegedly leapfrogged Roach didnt post it at the time? 
26  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Should Coach Breiner be on the "Hot Seat" on: October 17, 2017, 06:58:52 am
the donor base was split re: Pecora.  Yes, some big donors wanted to keep TP.  Others wanted him out.  Different circumstances than with the AB hire.  IMO, the Gridiron Club holds a lot more away over the football program than the Rebounders Club and hoops donors do over the basketball program.

No way.  The firing of Pecora was over heavy objection and threats to pull big money off the table. And those threats were carried out. The firing of Pecora was a far tougher sell by Roach than hiring of a 31 y/o assistant. Plus, Pecora had a contract extension to deal with , so not only did we lose donor money, we had to pay Pecora.
Roach made the right call on Pecora, the right call on Neubauer and his teams are winning across the board. I cant believe he pushed aside with this hire.

At this juncture, you appear to be the only poster who is insinuating that the Griidiron Club was responsible for this hire.  One other poster insists that it was Moorhead being able to leapfrog the AD and force the hire .......otherwise, there really isnt too much intel on how this hire went down......most of the football posters are in deep hiding....

Despite being out last week, Anderson did follow through with a fake pass from the game before.

This fiasco can't end soon enough. Has anyone heard from roach about this dire situation?

Not doubting you but in the end, there were so many better options. At a minimum, tag Breiner as interim then argue your case and do a thorough vetting. There was no down side to doing that.
