1  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Should Fordham Deny Releases for Transfers? on: June 15, 2017, 08:53:12 am
I think this


Makes it less likely that this

The D-IA schools can have one set of eligibility/transfer rules that work for them and the I-AA schools would be more restrictive it that's what suits them.  Really not that much different than we have now.  The Power 5 and select major programs have most of the money and that has created a huge disparity.  It's never going backward.  Adjust to reality and move on. 

Happens.

So let the 1-AA conferences send their winners like they do now. The days of the giant killers are pretty much over anyqay. 

If they are sending their winners to the tournament then what is the difference other than labeling them differently?

Sadly, the NCAA Tournament will hardly feel the loss of the mid and low-majors.  Tourny is becoming more elite every year, dominated by the Power conferences and a group of schools calling themselves The Big East.  Eventually the Power 5 may have their own post season tourny moving the NCAA one step closer to obsolete and then extinct.  Smaller schools aren't the ones driving t.v. viewership, ticket and merchandise sales, etc.

I think the tournament would miss the A-10 Mountain West AAC and other similar conferences.  I think they need to rethink the automatic bids for every conference.  Get the 68 best teams in the tournament and have them go at it.  I think that would ensure that the mid level conferences get more teams in and the lower conferences send their best teams who can compete as opposed their conference tournament champion which may be a team that got hot for a few days.

Here is who we play during the conference season, bolded games are home and home.

Fordham

Home – George Mason, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Richmond, Davidson, Duquesne, La Salle, Saint Joseph's, VCU

Away – Dayton, George Washington, St. Bonaventure, Saint Louis, Davidson, Duquesne, La Salle, Saint Joseph's, VCU


Would prefer to see George Mason as a home and home as they are going to be down this year however getting them and UMASS at home is good news. I am tired of losing to Richmond would like to see that change this year now that Kline is gone.

At this late stage New Guy #1 and New Guy #2 will have minimal impact if any on the starting lineup unless one of them is a 5th year Grad Student.  What we currently have is what we have as far as starters go.


and you know this how?
6  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Starting Line Up '17-18' on: June 05, 2017, 01:05:25 pm
Understanding we still have two ships to give here is an ideal lineup for me:

Chartouny
Evans/Havsa/Hicks
Ohams
Bunting
Slanina

Having Ohams at the three with his size and length would be great.  For this to happen we need his offense to improve and Bunting to become a solid defender and rebounder at the 4. 
7  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Pre Pre Season X & O on: June 02, 2017, 12:52:50 pm
   The point of this defense is to disrupt the opponent's half-court set plays, get the ball in the hands of a non-ball handler, and force errant passes.  I like the approach, but I think you use less of it than we did.  That fixes some of the fouling issues.

+1.  If a team is looking for you to trap and you do not that is disrupting because they are not prepared to face straight man to man or a zone. 

How about the fact that they try to block every single shot, wherever they are on the floor. Should be drilled into their brains not to leave their feet. Fundamental 101.

They are not trying to block every shot, they are running teams off the three point line.  They want to force teams into taking long 2s the most inefficient shot in basketball.  The defense focuses on turnovers and not allowing other teams to make threes.  They are willing to trade some lay ups to avoid teams taking threes and creating turnovers.
8  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: 2017-18 Out Of Conference Schedule on: June 02, 2017, 11:55:12 am
It should be noted that Fordham is NOT included....

Yes we and 6 other A-10 teams are not included in this hypothetical series thrown out there by Rothstein that will likely never happen.   Roll Eyes

West Virginia game along with Rutgers is plenty of road games against Power 5 teams.  Return Home games against ETU Harvard and Manhattan should be fun.  interesting to see how rest of schedule shapes up.

Green over Herzog?   Must be potential interesting call.

By the way this is a great fun thread.

I think I could come up with many combinations, but I think I am going to just go with this one. I started watching FU basketball in the Fall of 1989.

C - Damon Lopez
PF - Bryant Dunston
SF - Fred Herzog
SG - Bevon Robin
PG - Jay Fazande

Dunston and Robin would be playing where they truly belonged. Lopez was a beast on both ends of the floor. Herzog was, in my opinion, the most complete basketball player I have seen at Fordham.  Fazande would make that group run like a well oiled machine.

I have to replace Bevon with Smush.  Pure talent wise Smush was the only NBA player we've had.   It is also really tough leaving Prioleau and J-Rock off the team. 
12  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: MANNY SUAREZ 44 on: May 24, 2017, 03:14:08 pm
He would have fit in excellent.  Can shoot threes which is most important thing in JN's system.  Sometimes people get busy.  I root for Fordham to win all the time no matter who is the Coach. That is transparent.

Drunkle gave the numbers on shooting threes so I will address the people get busy.  You had plenty of time to post on multiple days multiple times a day when we were losing.  You suddenly got too busy to post when we won at Davidson (you posted the morning of that game but not after) and had some good wins down the stretch?  You could not find a minute over the next 2.5 months to post after one of our wins?  Not one post? Come on I get many of us post a lot and probably too much but the I was too busy to post for 2.5 months after joining in the fray as we got our clocks cleaned is nonsense.

Simple question: where was Topcat when we were getting some of the biggest wins we have had since joining the A-10 the last two months of the season?  Very vocal like many of us when we were losing and it looked the like the ship was taking on water.  But when we turned it around and won some games he disappeared only to return to post about Manny Suarez.  Embarrassingly transparent. 
16  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: MANNY SUAREZ 44 on: May 23, 2017, 10:55:55 am
Basically he was told he wouldn't play which means to leave. You think if someone disagrees with you they are Pecora supporter. Totally untrue.  My point was Suarez could have helped and that was what the argument was about. If you dont think he could have helped you should argue it on those grounds. Instead you make some claim thats not true.  Completely embarrassing.

It is absolutely true because Anderson was told where he stood on the depth chart as well and told he may not play that much.  Neubauer said publicly he did not expect Anderson to turn into a starting guard.  That is the point, Suarez had the chance to stay and try and improve like Anderson did but he chose to leave because he wanted guaranteed playing time.  Nothing wrong with that but his mother made it clear that is what happened.  What is embarrassing is you showing up here now after being very vocal during our dismal OOC season but then disappearing when we got some good wins.  Where were you when we beat VCU URI etc? You had plenty of time to post when we were struggling but not one post after we get some good wins.  That is embarrassing. 
17  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: MANNY SUAREZ 44 on: May 23, 2017, 10:45:49 am
I was told he was told that he couldn't play at Fordahm. Coach thought he wasn't good enough. He was upset and did not want to leave. Everyone gets one wrong.  I was criticized for saying he could have helped early in season last year.  The bottom line is that he really could have helped.

He did not have to leave.  He was told his place on the depth chart and chose to leave because he did not want to take a chance on not getting playing time.  Remember for 15-16 prior to Canty injury he was behind Rhoomes Canty Sengfelder and Bunting was coming in.  As far as criticism for saying he could help, you posted after a 20 point loss and it was comical especially since the issue, especially in 15-16 was our guards inability to shoot.  You treated him like Dirk Nowitzky.  Suarez did not set the world on fire the year before.  This idea that we would have won more games with Suarez is a joke.  You have no way of knowing if he would have made the strides he did after leaving, maybe it was the wake up call he needed.  His mother posted what happened now crawl back under your rock and say hello to Pecora for us.  Suarez is going to Creighton and I am rooting for him to excel, seems it worked out well for him in the end.  Good to hear.

21  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Why the RHG is to be Named for McLaughlin on: May 17, 2017, 11:41:12 am
If they dropped the Frank part, I would definitely be inclined to donate towards the marginal upgrades they are proposing.  But my checkbook is staying closed otherwise.  If they really feel the need, let them name one of the hospitality suites after him. 

I know at least a dozen people who feel the exact same way.  It is the same statement every time: if Frank and his friends want this to happen they should pay for it.  why am I going to donate to a project that will result in the naming of the court after an AD who struggled in his job duties (cleaning it up the last part for the board a little)? 
22  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Recruiting Update on: May 17, 2017, 11:35:35 am
Looks like eastern Europe and Turkey for rest of this years recruits.  Not much left in US.

May have been that way all along.  We will have to wait and see. 
23  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Fordham’s Joseph Chartouny to Declare for NBA Draft on: May 16, 2017, 09:59:51 am
Workouts get arranged through intermediaries for those who did not get invited to the combine. Chartouny will either be at Fordham or playing pro overseas next year.  He is not an NBA player or even D League.  It is good he is getting this experience but it does not change his status. 
24  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Recruiting Update on: May 15, 2017, 11:18:17 am
Sengfelder and Slanina were both European bigs. 
25  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Recruiting Update on: May 13, 2017, 09:16:12 pm
About as useless as this headline:

5/13/2017 - Fordham 2017 SF Jordan Tucker (6-7, 207, 4★) | Position Rank: 7 committed to Duke.

Note: If I've missed any signings in the "OUTGOING/INCOMING" thread, please let me know. It should be up to date.

Here is a recruiting question: how much difference is there between 2 and 3 star recruits?  I think it is an arbitrary designation.  Beyond the top 100 (one could argue top 50) isn't it all purely conjecture?   How many 3 star guys become legit A-10 level players as opposed to 2?   How is it a Davidson has a roster of players ranked like ours but they win?  Is it more about finding players that fit in with what your staff wants to do as opposed to just being 3 stars? Doesn't that support the idea that we are focused too much on these rankings as opposed to building a team? 
26  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Recruiting Update on: May 13, 2017, 02:47:19 pm
Doesn't every coach want at least the 3 star players? I am not trying to be sarcastic nor am I doubting this coaching staff but has JN recruited a 3 star player yet? Hopefully he does this year which would be great but wanting one and actually bringing in one is totally different. Again I hope he does.

Useless measure as seen below.  I know for a fact Neubauer does not care about the star rating system.  people in this thread are just throwing stuff out with no support.   Hardnett Smith and now Evans all 3 star players.

27  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Academic standards and athletics success on: May 13, 2017, 10:58:16 am
They were academically motivated enough to graduate in 3 years, as was Severe.  If you don't understand how tough it is to play a scholarship sport and knock off the extra credits to graduate in 3 years you're more clueless than I thought. These guys were academically motivate.  Fordham does a nice job on the academic side   

First of all you were not referring to severe since you were talking about having a good team next year, severe would have graduated last year.  Anderson graduated in 4 years.  Severe went to iona Sengfelder Boise State.  Academics had 0 to do with their leaving it was all basketball.  Taking summer courses is easy especially when they are free and you get room and board. They were not taking those courses for academic reasons it was all basketball.  Good for them but let's be realistic about the "rigor" of summer courses. 
28  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Academic standards and athletics success on: May 12, 2017, 10:23:43 am
Academic problems are one thing Fordham seems to have a good handle on with athletics.   This isn't an issue. I don't understand the point of the thread.  We'd have a better team next year if a couple of ex-players were a little less academically motivated.  

This makes no sense.  Anderson and Sengfelder both said their moves were all about basketball.  Anderson was here 4 years graduated so how could he be less academically minded, go on the 5 year plan?  Sengfelder  went to a school that is less than stellar academically how is that being academically motivated?   Here is another one: Suarez chose to go to Adelphi so he could get playing time it does not get less academically motivated than that. 

29  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Tre Evans Commits to Fordham on: May 11, 2017, 09:51:35 am
Ponderous meandering nothing to do with with Tre Evans. Arent there Palestinian and Hardys threads for theses philosophical musings?

This place is amazing.  The only strained interpretation are those ignoring what his mother clearly stated happened. We did not have to be there we were told exactly what was said. But if it makes you feel better to live in your fantasy world have at it. 

 The important thing is that Manny is getting a shot to play at Creighton, he went from a guy who could not crack the rotation on a 20 loss team to playing DII getting his head straight and now is going to Creighton.
