Some quick research and info regarding Myles Johnson:

- 4.0 GPA and Academic All American last 3 years
- Interested in good academic school
- Wants to be an engineer
- Offers from Yale, Lehigh et al.

I believe Fordham has a combined program with Columbia for engineering.  Of course, that might result in a grad transfer to the Lions after three years.   Evil

 

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.

By story I mean the transfer.  I am sorry that some of us expect people who get an opportunity to show some loyalty and will not show loyalty to them if it is not reciprocated. 

As for your question, if a kid gets run off I would expect he would consider Fordham disloyal and not speak highly of the school and that would be understandable.  Just like Sengfelders decision while understandable will cause me and others to not look kindly on him in the future. 

We can do this forever. Agree to disagree.

If the kid (let's go hypothetical here and forget Sengfelder, for a second) plays one year at the next school and does not finish the degree would you feel differently? In most cases they are not truly going after a graduate degree.

No, I wouldn't feel any different. He's using the rules to his advantage, so good for him. He graduated from Fordham, and that's what is important to me. He didn't leave us after a year to play for Nova or USC or wherever else. Do I blame those kids for leaving? No, I don't blame them at all. However, I wouldn't consider them part of the "Fordham family," if you will. I wouldn't expect anyone at Fordham or any alum to answer a phone call from them.

I'm disappointed that he left, but I'm not going to hold it against him, and I'm not going to consider his actions some sort of crime against Fordham. I'm having a hard time comprehending why anyone would, but that's their call.

Then tell us the story so we can know what's going on. Otherwise, I'll continue on with the facts that clear and present.

It rubs me the wrong way when people are publically blacklisting a kid because he chose to get his graduate degree elsewhere. Sorry I crossed into the derogatory realm, but it bothers me.

Who said majority?   Most won't know the story but many of  those who do are not going to look favorably on him.

I am not labeling your stance with derogatory terms, so no need to label my stance as you do.

People cannot help every grad that asks for help, so when it comes time to help they are going to step up to bat for the guy who they feel they can vouch for. If you are going to put your reputation on the line, you are going to do it for a guy that you know won't walk away when there's still work to be done.

Why because I think what he did was wrong and it impacts my view of him?   You burn bridges it has consequences that is the way life works. Best learn that.

Do you get this upset when Fordham runs/chases someone off the court? Do you call Fordham disloyal and they show them the door when they've been recruited over?

Thanks for the free lesson, btw. I had no idea how life worked until you filled me in. Whew!

No, Ace. I'm using common sense. Do you really think people are going to turn their backs to Sengfelder because he graduated and played basketball for another school? C'mon. This can't be a real conversation. Pathetic.

Who said majority?   Most won't know the story but many of  those who do are not going to look favorably on him.
