1  The Fordham Forums / All Other Fordham Rams' Sports / Re: WBB vs. Penn State on: December 07, 2017, 12:09:38 am
Despite the loss, what jumped out at me was the competitiveness of our Women's BB Team. App. 20-25 years ago, my wife and I drove to State College, PA to see our Lady Rams, which they were known at the time, play the gals from Penn State, who were ranked #2 or #4 in the country. We arrived 10 minutes after Tip-off and our Rams were down 16-4 I believe. Our gals fought valiantly but it was a no contest in a sold-out arena which sat several thousand people. We lost by app. 40 points. The Fordham Women's BB program has come so far since then, particularly under Coach Gaitley. To go to Happy Valley and outplay Penn State for three and a half quarters is a tremendous accomplishment and underscores how far the program has progressed.

Nice going, Ladies! Great job, Coach! Even better days are ahead!

TERRIFIC!

Congrats to the Soccer Rams for a terrific performance today. I believe that the announcer said that UNC made it to the Elite Eight 8x
in the last 10 years. To lose to a team like that by only one goal is not a loss! Our Rams proved that they are winners. Kudos to the coach for putting together an excellent game plan, and to the players for their outstanding execution of it.

And thanks to our grandson, Aidan, who showed us how to connect the computer to the TV set so we could receive the game clearly
on the large set. What a difference it made in our viewing enjoyment!

AMEN!

Is this the closest any  fordham team has ever advanced to a national championship, in any sport?

'85, in response to your question, at last spring's ICSA Coed National Dinghy Championship, the Fordham Sailing Team finished
7th in the 18-team Championship Round. It may be comparing apples and oranges because it's not a one-vs-one competition but a one vs. 17 event. Fordham had to advance to the quarterfinals and then the semifinals to qualify for the finals.

Interestingly, 14 of the 18 teams were varsity and four were club teams. The first six were varsity and our Rams were the first of the four
participating club teams. Moreover, the 14 club teams were from a 29-team varsity universe, whereas the four club teams were from a 187-team universe. If College Sailing presented a Club Championship National Trophy, Fordham would have won it.

Regardless, it was a wonderful accomplishment for the Soccer team tonight as it was a wonderful accomplishment for the Sailing team
last June.

GO RAMS! BEAT UNC!

I thought that the announcer said that Duke was the #14 team in the country, but the winning video is indicating Duke at #6. Does anyone know?
7  The Fordham Forums / All Other Fordham Rams' Sports / Re: Fordham vs Duke on: November 25, 2017, 08:59:15 pm
Wow! Wow! Wow!

Epic, Indeed!

Noohoo (Sp?) had an awesome night.

I thought that we were in trouble after we controlled the ball for nearly half of the second half, and then Duke took control as it looked like we were running out of steam. But the Rams did it. It wasn't the prettiest but it was certainly one of the most satisfying soccer games
I have ever had the pleasure to see.

I believe that one announcer said that Duke was ranked #14 in the country. How well Fordham improved after losing to Duke 3-1 early in the season is awesome. Our Rams are certainly peaking at the right time. Kudos to the team members and the coaching staff!

I've got Spectrum, ex-Time Warner in Manhattan and don't receive ESPN3. Any suggestions?

Kaup, you have a heck of a memory! But I was 66, so you had a 35-year advantage. If you thought that I was an old codger then, you should see me now! BTW, I do recall that after the BB game, I regretted not "going downtown to celebrate the FB win." Apparently, you
made the right call!
10  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Fordham Football - Happy Thanksgiving on: November 22, 2017, 09:08:10 pm
That story gave me chills, 98ramgrad. The loss of someone dear to us is never easy, but it does get easier and the good memories are a huge help.

That day up at Northeastern was a great day, even though I foolishly capped it off by going to the basketball game in which we got crushed.


Ditto & Amen, Ace. My Dad passed at age 91 in 1994 and I still miss him. The memories are priceless. 98ramgrad, God bless you and may your father rest in peace.

I was there at both games and led the cheers with one of those battery operated megaphones at the football game. That win was sweet and
made the trip worthwhile. As far as the BB game went, yes, our Rams were crushed, but that comes with the territory when one is a long-time and loyal Fordham BB fan.

GO RAMS! BEAT THE JASPERS!

According to the NYT, the game is on CBS Sports Network at 7:30 PM. It's Channel 315 on Spectrum in Manhattan but the program is a Villanova vs NC rerun. Can anyone else access it?

Terrific first game vs. St. Francis and awesome accomplishment over Virginia.

Go Rams & Beat Duke or whichever team we end up playing!

Fordham's Women's team, consisting of Grace Howie '20 & Elizabeth Hupp '21 in A Division and Charlotte Leclue '19
& Gabrielle Mascio '18 in B Division, justified its Top 20 ranking in the latest Coaches Poll conducted by SAILING WORLD
Magazine by finishing 16th in an extremely competitive 18-team fleet at the Women's Atlantic Coast Championship sailed
in FJs and hosted by Connecticut College this weekend.

Among the three East Coast conferences, New England (NEISA) dominated by capturing the top four places and eight of the top 11.

Fordham was one of only three club teams to qualify for this prestigious competition.

Official Summary

Saturday, November 11:

"Hello Sailors! The Connecticut College Sailing Team welcomed the top 18 Women's Teams from the Atlantic Coast Conferences. The Breeze was North at 8-12 with Shifts from the NE and NW. The Breeze eventually lightened. 6 Races in A div and 5 Races in B div were sailed. 5 Yellow flags were given and no protests were heard."

Sunday, November 12:

"The Sailors arrived to a surprisingly strong North Breeze at 5-7 knts. B div went out and sailed race 6B. A div went out and Sailed 7A and the RC had to abandon race 8A when the North Breeze shut off. The teams returned to the dock and waited. It was a Christmas miracle when SSW breeze came down the river. We were able to get 1 more A div race and 2 B div races, before we ran out of time. 1 Protest was heard resulting in a DSQ. A Special thank you to all of the competitors and Coaches for helping us put our Fjs and Motorboats away for the Winter. Always nice hosting a late Fall event and get help closing up for the season."

Great Bulletin Board Material for the Team! Based upon no more than the positive feedback from my Board brethren, who reported upon last week's exhibition game, plus my perception of Jeff's ability to maximize a team's performance, imo there is no way Fordham finishes among the bottom three in our conference. 7-11 is probably realistic barring major injuries to our core players. But what do I know?    Wink

FROM THE OFFICIAL REPORT

SUMMARY
"Saturday, October 28:
Seneca Lake dished out a little bit of everything for the 14 races sailed today at the 2017 War Memorial Regatta. Racing started in a big southerly blow of 20-24 knots sustained with higher gusts. Three-foot waves made for excellent surfing conditions and exciting runs.
Midday, the breeze shifted to the South-Southwest and backed off to an ideal 10-14 knots under sunny skies. The wind continued to shift to the west and died later in the afternoon. Racing was called at 4:45pm."

"Sunday, October 29:
Four races in A and six races in B Division were sailed in flat water conditions with a 8-12 knot breeze from the north. Racing was extremely tight and exciting. Congratulations to the teams moving forward to the ACC's."

While the Official Report is not indicated as "Final," it has been unchanged for several hours, and the battle for the 7th & 8th
qualifying berths appears to have ended as follows:

7.   Cornell                     190 points
8.   Navy                        190   "
9.   Old Dominion.           190   "

28  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Sailing / Re: WAR MEMORIAL - FALL CONFERENCE CHAMPIONSHIP on: October 29, 2017, 01:29:14 pm
At 1:30 PM Sunday, after 20 races, 10 in each division, it appears to be a four-way competition for the final two qualifying berths for the
Atlantic Coast Championship:

PLACE  TEAM              POINTS
   7      Cornell               157
   8       Navy                 159
   9       Old Dominion     159
 10       FORDHAM          161

Cornell trails Kings Point by 13 points and Fordham leads Hampton by 56 points.

A the end of 14 races, 8 A Division and 6 B Division, our Rams are in the eighth and last qualifying spot for the Atlantic Coast Coed Championship. With 109 points, Fordham is five points out of seventh and eight points out of ninth in the 18-team competitive fleet.

30  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Sailing / Re: Weekend Regatta Report: Rams Qualify for Women's ACCs on: October 26, 2017, 05:26:26 pm
Congratulations to the Women's team on qualifying for the Atlantic Coast Championship, which behind Women's National's is probably the second most competitive women's regatta in the country. Not only qualifying by being one of the top seven teams but placing ahead of the U.S. Naval Academy and St. Mary's is quite an accomplishment.

In MAISA, our Mid-Atlantic Conference, there are 53 schools, of which 12 field varsity and 41 are club teams. Six of the 12 varsity programs qualified for the Women's ACC's. One of the 41 club teams did...Fordham!

Good luck to our gals at the ACCs!
