“Frank truly bleeds maroon,” said Darlene Luccio Jordan, FCRH ’89, a member of the Board of Trustees. “He has been a force both on Fordham’s basketball court and then courtside for more than four decades. I couldn’t think of a more fitting tribute to Frank, [his wife]Susan, and their girls than to name the Rose Hill Gym’s basketball court in honor of his family.”

615 wins  963 losses.  

What bleeds maroon are my eyes reading such lunacy.

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.

[b]" Upon reaching this fundraising goal, we will rename the court in honor of Frank and his family.
The Frank McLaughlin Family Basketball Court, with these enhancements, will continue to be known as one of the most vibrant, challenging places to play in the Atlantic 10. It will serve as a tribute not only to Frank but also to the McLaughlin family legacy at Fordham, first established by Frank and his brothers Walter, Jackie, and Tommy and carried on today by Frank and Susan’s three daughters, all of them Rams: Tara Marie (Class of 1999), Mary Heather (Class of 2002), and Colleen Patrice (Class of 2005).  "[/b]


Wouldn't his brothers be his father's family?  This mission statement is just so illogical it is mind boggling. How are two (2) guys who didn't attend Fordham a legacy at Fordham?  Do we have a definition of legacy?
 
I was trying to explain this in my earlier post: Fordham Prep was a school of the university at the time Frank's brothers attended.  That might be the technicality that "establishes" the "legacy."

I am sure Frank and his family are really upset at all the criticism.  Regardless of what people think, he has had a career that most Fordham fans would shed their daily keyboard rants for ... 

Youre probably 100 percent correct that he couldnt care less about how people feel about this "honor".   He hasnt cared for 35 years.  Why would he start to care now?

His nephew posted here about it so yes they are upset.  Lets name the gym after 3 young women who didn't play any sports and took free rides.......they should be ashamed, but they aren't because they have no shame.

So now he goes from being an honorable good man to having a career that we would be envious of having?

Frank was booted, we hired a B list AD off the scrap heap and suddenly we are winning in every sport after 25 years of Frank's failure.

Nobody cares about Frank's family in the context of the naming of the Fordham University basketball floor because they are not relevant to Fordham University basketball.

Unfortunately in the environment I work in it is very hard to upgrade quickly.  We depend on so many different software packages to run different aspects of the organization (at least 15 different ones) and have to rely on the software companies to make sure they are compatible with the newer operating systems before we can undertake such an upgrade.  Windows 10 has been out for a while now and we won't be making the move until at least the fall.

Nice that your environment allows visits to fan boards.  That aside, on a home computer, or tablet wouldn't upgrade to Windows 10.
