Can we get the court named after John Andariese?

Sure, if he left Fordham the $2.5 mil.

Not sure even that bequest would be enough to change the minds of the powers that be from staying their present course.

He certainly didn't cost us any money in buyouts.

Guys, the man just passed . I would let this go.   

Bottom line is the school has a totally bogus campaign that is based on out and out nonsense. it is easily pulverized when matched against the facts. Its a disgrace to immortalize these freeloaders with our court and, they want us to pay for it.

We need a petition to oppose it. Will that work?  Probably not but its a outright sham and the comments coming from these BOT members need to be attacked.

The BOT wouldn't look at it.  The petition would best be addressed to Frank himself, urging him to decline this.

Quote from Dave Roach I think the university decided to honor Frank McLaughlin....." Seems to imply that this wasn't his idea. Evil

Their intention isn't to actually rename the gym, is it?!?  Aren't they just dedicating the floor like Duke did with Coach K Court in Cameron?

I don't even think it was the university. The announcement implied it was the group of alumni that got together to do it.

It ends with something like help us help our friend Frank....sounds more like an intervention than a dedication, and why the block F do I care about helping your friend?

Other than the one comment by Roach, the Ram article does not contain any information not found in the announcement on the University website.  The writer could have done a little more homework.  That being said, the article does allow comments at the end of the article and the Ram invites Opinions with a tab at the top of the page.  Have at it.

Putting lipstick on a pig is not enough, especially if the lipstick is poisonous.

FYI in case you did not know- the former recruit Mitchell who you saw on campus with Jayvon Graves last fall signed a NLI with Cal State Fullerton.

The post from "Mike" about the win/loss records is amazing.  That alone should be enough for them to reconsider.

The "the bad coach" comment was just painful.

I posted a new thread because if you read the article, it states that the entire RHG is being re-named, not just the floor.

The Business School has Gabelli's name on it.

Naming the court after Frank would be like naming the business school after a guy who coasted and got all 'D's in his finance classes.

And then got a job in the development office and didn't raise enough money to cover his salary over 40 years on the job.

The New Business Building at LC has no name yet. 

Bids start at 30 million.

And that was pointed out i the letters posted to The Ram article.....of course the paper hasn't posted a clarification/correction, nor did the reporter have any response.

 No pride of authorship or sense of responsibility I guess.
