I do not understand what your obsession with spouse.  He is poster here like the rest of us. He has his point of view and you have yours. If you disagree please be mature about it.

Spouse doesn't need you to defend him. He's got enough mouth on him to take care of himself.

Well I hate to say I predicted this ....ok I dont really hate to say it.

Now is AA also in a position to graduate?   Since he has been here for 4 years and with summers and one year of no ball, it would seem like he should be.  Will he too be poached for a 5th year? 

Welcome to the mess known as college basketball 2017. Utter cluster block F.

So if Sengfelder leaves, and AA has a  chance to leave and 2 players are posting here under fake names threatening to leave, sounds like we are on even footing with the rest of collelge basketball these days.  Maybe Tavares can be the first player in history to go back to JUCO as a 3rd year transfer?

So in 2 years we had Ryan Rhoomes who committed to staying with the program, a new coach, a new system and help put the initial foundation together for putting our program back together from the ashes.  He took a leap of faith and will probably be rewarded (as he should be) into the Fordham Rams basketball Hall of Fame in the coming years.  Now one year later we have Sengfelder who quits the program, our coaches, teammates and our new system and some of us on this board sit here and applaud him for a job well done.  Not me.  His Fordham career statistics should have a Roger Maris, Ford Frick imposed asterisk next to his statistics.....

* quit the team, teammates, coaches and fans with one year eligibility left to go for greener pastures.

He would have ended his career in the all time top 10 in scoring and top 10 in rebounding.  I would follow Rhoomes into battle any time.  I would never follow Seng, carrying his French white flag of surrender into battle.

Not a lot a few most knew Paschal would play well at Nova.  With that said Sengfelder is not as good as Paschal but better than Severe.  I saw Northwestern being a possibility I have a tough time seeing him playing at that level but maybe he will surprise.  I think he will have trouble getting off his shot, finishing around the rim and on defense at that level.   If he went to the MAAC Monmouth or Siena would be good fits and he would be really good have a shot to go to the tournament.  He does not fit Iona's system. 

I am not disagreeing with anything you said but in a round about way you bring up a point about our talent level in general. Sengfelder was one of our better players no doubt but your opinion about him playing at that level would apply to almost everyone on our roster.

CS did what was asked of him for 3 years, represented the school well, managed a 4.0 GPA and will graduate early.  I get that some value loyalty, but he has one year of eligibility remaining.  I doubt he grew up dreaming of playing in the NCAA tournament, but it probably has caught his interest over the last few years.  Good luck to him.  I would welcome him as a Fordham alum after he leaves.

We lost JS to grad transfer last year and brought in JH as a grad transfer this yea.  No one criticized the players for those moves.  I find the comments about CS hypocritical.  If you are going to recruit grad transfers, you need to be prepared to lose grad transfers.  For every player who leaves, there should be two or more guys busting their butts to get a foot in the door and take that vacant spot in the starting lineup.  JN can use that to his advantage when recruiting.

CS, a 20-21 year old (pretty sure he was 17 at the start of his freshman year) is not the problem.  The state of NCAA basketball and the job world has changed dramatically since many of us were young.  The elite majors have coaches who  are paid more than some CEOs, facilities that cost more than the GNP of small countries, and "one and dones" who have been pampered and cajoled since they were in middle school.  In the real world, younger employees change jobs every few years to get ahead, the mantra of executives is what have you done for me lately, and no one's job is safe.  I may not like it, but times are changing.  Technology and the desire for immediate answers and gratification may have something to do with this new order.  I'd like to think I have the wisdom to see I cannot change the current state, and that I have the serenity to accept it.  I don't like it, but I accept it.          

Many valid points.

Maybe he wants to experience playing in a real facility with real fans, with a shot at the NCAA tourney in his final year of college ball. 

...or maybe he wants to get his MBA elsewhere. He is very bright . I would not be surprised if he ended up in an IVY school.

Oh, just so we don't come off as ungrateful, and because it's well-deserved, let me say "Thank you, Chris Sengfelder. You surprised us as a freshman, when you started filling up stat sheets, you had more A-10 Newcomer of the Week nods than any other player in school history, you scored 1000+ points as a Ram, you helped anchor our first winning and postseason team in years, and we'll miss you and your play."

Need someone to second that motion. It probably should be by acclamation.

I'll  add one more compliment to CS.....as to this talk about "burning his bridges" with the Fordham fan base,  the kid proves to be clever on that also....because there is no smaller fan base in D1 to antagonize!  Well played Christian.

Good luck.  I don't  believe in going away parties for anyone but retirees, but I will take your phone calls.

That's exactly right El Jefe.  He met with admissions today, and he did mention his passion for engineering.  FU does have a co-op program with Columbia and Case Western, but that is primarily offered at LC.  Could be a tough sell.

Several FB players studied in that engineering program.

...... There are a lot of student-athletes out there who dream of a career in New York. We can be their first stemmp.

True, but the best A10 type talent want a better athletic atmosphere than we supply.  We'll lose more good talent to transfer than we attract as long as we are so lacking in what kids want.
