- North Carolina -- SU, Wed April 06, 2005 09:38:25 
It must be said that North Carolina is a worthy second successor to the Syracuse Orange. UNC is a great team. Syracuse was not fortunate this year, however great credit must be given to a team that that only lost by 3 to an eight man opponent. Apparently the refs were totally for Vermont. Two bad calls, a technical foul on Warrick for hanging on the rim (I've only seen this called once before-it was against St. Bonaventure in an NCAA game that preceeded ours in Cleveland a few years ago and cost the Bonnies a game against Kentucky), and a second bad call for a backcourt violation on a play where Syracuse never had possession of the ball in forecourt were too much to overcome. Also, Hakkem and Jerry were mugged all night and no calls. Fordham, it did not go unnoticed that you revelled in our defeat to Vermont. You are on notice. Should your basketball program ever improve to the point where it would earn an invitation to play in the Dome, Fordham will have to be punished.

- If memory serves me correctly, the last time Fordham played Syracuse, Fordham won. Syracuse has been running scared since. (NT) -- Drag-less, Wed April 06, 2005 10:44:23
- SU, If the dictionary used a picture to illustrate the word "arrogance," your face would be there. Making excuses for a humiliating loss--and whining about bad calls by refs--is what one expects from losers, not from a championship program. Have you ever read anything by the psychologist Alfred Adler? He talks about the psychological mechanisms of "compensation," and how people with a sense of inferiority often vacillate between boastfulness & bullying on the one hand--and whining & rationalization on the other. Your psychological characteristics seem quite similar to those of the self-important felons/bullies who typically play for Syracuse. (NT) -- Headshrinker, Wed April 06, 2005 11:05:26
- Funniest thread of the year. Good stuff! (NT) -- PA Ram, Wed April 06, 2005 11:18:33
- SU obviously expects that in a game like Vermont, all the calls will go Syracuse's way, whether in the dome or not. Sorry, no Big Least refs in that one. Syracuse got burned by Vermont, what, almost three weeks ago? And in all that time the best excuse they can come up with is a backcourt violation? Bad refs? Next they'll be blaming the media. SU, they're changing the name to Syr-Excuse! (NT) -- Ram '91, Wed April 06, 2005 11:34:29
- No fair! That Vermont game wasn't rigged in our favor! We're a Big East team, we need all the help we can get! (NT) -- Syracuse Fan, Wed April 06, 2005 11:43:19
- Yes we Fordham fans reveled in the Syracuse loss to Vermont and you should know that your arrogance and stupidity is primarily responsible. The great thing about this is that as a high & mighty program you can never live down a loss to a minnow like Vermont and we Fordham fans will be laughing at you personally every time you come on our board. I hope your take this humiliation to heart and never visit here again, you won’t be missed. (NT) -- SIram, Wed April 06, 2005 12:45:55
- SU is now bordering on self-parody. Is he a masochist or does he really not know how pathetic he sounds? We are "on notice"? Please. Fordham is already too talented to get an OOC game scheduled with the Orange. I have it on good authority that cupcakes were to be served at Boeheim's Hall of Fame induction. Funny, isn't it, how a loss to Vermont will change one's swagger into a whine. (NT) -- Upstate Ram, Wed April 06, 2005 12:53:02
- There was incredibly a small kernel of truth in SU's otherwise inane rant: "it would earn an invitation to play in the dome". To his (her?) credit, he makes no effort to assume that a Syra-lose OOC game would be played anywhere else. However the first part of that sentence should read "Should your basketball program ever fall to the level where it would earn an invitation to play in the Dome..." (NT) -- Ram'83, Wed April 06, 2005 14:15:11

- Annual Dinner -- GMeagherFC74, Wed April 06, 2005 13:27:32 
The Annual Dinner at the Waldorf was resounding success. Father McShane has proved to be a worthy successor to the great Father O'Hare. I was lucky to have a few words with John Bach, FC 48, who was a great Fordham player and a Boston Celtic then our coach and athletic director. Coach Bach who spent a few years in the Navy during the War before finishing his studies is a class act and still at over 80 a stunning physical presence. He pointed out that it was he who recruited Charlie Yelverton, Jack Burik and Billy Mainor, the heart of our great 1971 team. He said that he never wanted to leave Fordham but when Brooklyn Prep's Joe Paterno called from Penn State with an offer to more than double his then $13,500 salary, he couldn't refuse given the 5 children he had at home. John was with his old player John Anderaise, the Knick announcer and restauranteur Buzzy O'Keefe of River Cafe and Water Club fame. It was also great to see Giants owner Wellington Mara. It was a great night and the remarks by Charles Osgood who has a son at Fordham now and a daughter who is an alumnae, and Countrywide Finance founder Angelo Mozzillo,were compelling and humourous. Surprisingly, Coach Bach said that St. Simon Stocks'Danny Lyons was a more talented player than his teammate Ed Conlin.

- We're Holding Our Last Scholarship -- Rambacker, Mon April 04, 2005 12:46:09 
We will be holding our last scholarship until the Fall, unless we get a strong transfer over the summer. We've been contacted by several attractive possible transfers but there have not been formal releases yet from their schools. Jermaine Anderson will back up KA at the point next season.
Also heard that Mount Vernon, NY High School PG Chris Lowe will go the prep school route next season.

- So are you saying that JA will not start? If thats the case, they're making a big mistake. I realize he's not a true point guard, but if thats the case, whats wrong with starting stout, JA, and KA as was the case this year? He's become a very viable offensive threat and needs to be on the floor as much as possible. (NT) -- '02 Grad, Mon April 04, 2005 13:24:26
- No, that's not at all what I mean. When KA needs a blow, Jermaine will replace him at the point, whether he moves over from the 2 or comes in, depending on the situation. I did not mean to infer that Jermaine won't start. At the beginning of the season, all positions are wide open and Jermaine will get plenty of playing time. Remember, we'll have two more scholarship players on our roster next season than we did last year. We lose Mushon but get Bethel, Phillips and Devine. This gets us closer to a squad that can be utilized in the manner that DW prefers - a ten man rotation to run, press and play some Kamikaze D to wear down our opponents. (NT) -- Rambacker, Mon April 04, 2005 13:34:07
- While I would have liked to have signed another PG, this is a great opportunity for Kevin. You've gotta love his attitude and I think w/ a year under his belt and some hard work during the summer, he's going to help us take the next step in '05-'06. (NT) -- bfg, Mon April 04, 2005 13:44:57

- Odom to UVA -- Rambacker, Mon April 04, 2005 11:18:11 
Looks like South Carolina coach Odom will be named head coach at UVA. Interesting choice - Odom is 62 years old.
[ Edit | View ]
- Did he used to coach Wake Forest? (NT) -- DebataRam, Mon April 04, 2005 11:26:17
- There's an article in today's Chatlottesville Daily Progress about the UVA search. See http://www.dailyprogress.com/servlet/Satellite?pagename=CDP%2FMGArticle%2FCDP_BasicArticle&c=MGArticle&cid=1031781973063&path=!sports. Among the snippets - Odom did not receive an offer, is upset about the Washington Post article yestreday, and is even more upset that Andy Katz called him at 6:45 am to ask about it. Bottom line is that it's far from clear who UVA will pick. (NT) -- TNRam, Tue April 05, 2005 08:54:07
- Apparently Odom has done some serious damage to his relationship with the SC administration and fans because he's been lobbying hard behind the scenes for the UVA job. (NT) -- Rambacker, Tue April 05, 2005 10:10:02
- There's an opening at UVA? I'm on it! (NT) -- Gonzo, Tue April 05, 2005 10:32:04
- It shouldn't be a surprise to anyone at SC that Odom would have an interest in the UVA job. He was Terry Holland's top assistant at UVA in the late 80s. Holland advocated that Odom replace him there as head coach, but when UVA opened up the search Odom took the Wake Forest job. The current SC AD, Mike Magee, is stepping down in June. Heard Steve Weisman, sports writer for The State (Columbia, SC's newspaper) talk about the situation last night, and his take is that Odom is a second-tier choice for UVA. UVA is seeking a "big name" coach to re-energize the UVA fan base and help fill its new arena. Weisman thinks, however, that if UVA can't get that higher-profile coach, it will pick Odom. One other point he mentioned was that the initial reaction to the Washington Post article from fans on the UVA message board re Odom's possible hiring was largely negative. Makes you wonder if someone at UVA floated out a trial balloon to the Post to gauge what fan reaction would be. (NT) -- TNRam, Wed April 06, 2005 08:58:04

- Do you say that because the reference to olives pertains to the Holy Land, the home of the Jews, and Cardinal Lustiger is of Jewish descent? Some Benedictines think that the prophesy means that the next pope will come from their order, because they have an olive on their shield, and are also known as the Olivetans. St. Benedict himself is supposed to have predicted that a Benedictine would lead the Church in the days leading up to its final fight against evil. If you believe the prophecies, the next pope may be the last pope before Peter II, whom Malachy is said to have predicted would preside over the end of time. Of course, then there is the whole issue of authenticity. (NT) -- JoltinJoe, Tue April 05, 2005 06:56:38

- 2 things from www.paradisejam.com. First, it was thought that Hampton was in this tournament along with FU, Wisconsin, Georgia, and ODU, but on the website is says Eastern Kentucky is in, no mention of Hampton. Also, last year's tournament was just a 6 team tournament but the website has 3 blank slots for TBA teams, meaning they want 8 this year instead of 6. Maybe last year they couldn't get 8 and settled for 6. No matter how you slice it, the major conference teams are good (Isn't Georgia getting the best or a top 5 nationally ranked recruit if he doesn't go pro?) and the mid-majors in there were both in the NCAAs this year.

- 2005-2006 Roundball Schedule -- Lookin' Ahead, Sun April 03, 2005 16:17:12 
With two additional clubs (the St. Louis Billikens and the Charlotte 49ers) joining the A-10 Conference, for the 2005-2006 season, some of the conference games will be scheduled as home and away games, and others, as single games. The questions that come to mind are: (1) How is it determined exactly which conference members play a home and home series, and which clubs only play a single game ? (2) With regard to both conference and non-conference games, if only one game is scheduled, how is the home team determined ?
[ Edit | View ]
- Also, does anyone know if Villanova will remain on our schedule next year. They'll be a preseason top 25 team and would could be an exciting game for the young team. (NT) -- Parkman, Sun April 03, 2005 17:35:55
- I think that 'Nova was a one-time deal (but not 100% sure). As for the A-10, the league assigns 3 schools that a team will play home-and-home. I don't know if there is a mathmatical formula but the general idea is to help weaker teams play other weak teams so their schedules aren't too tough. I think these are 2 year arrangements and the league reassigns after that. For the next 2 years, we have been assigned Bonas, Duquesne, and URI. (NT) -- bfg, Sun April 03, 2005 18:18:19
- Why then, Brian, did Fordham, a team that was predicted to finish last in the Eastern Division of the A-10, play St. Joe's and Temple, both A-10 powerhouses, twice during the 2004-2005 season ? (NT) -- Just Askin', Sun April 03, 2005 22:19:00
- That clears up Question #1. Any schedule scholars out there want to take a shot at Question #2 ? (NT) -- Home Advantage, Sun April 03, 2005 23:50:36
- to answer "just askin's" Q, the A-10 used a 2 division format during the past few years, so we played teams in our division home-and-home regardless of how good/bad they were. That changes next year when we add Charlotte and SLU and go to a one-division 14-team league. As for how the sites are determined for the teams we play only once, I'm not sure but it will probably involve some geographic balance. I imagine that we'll go to Ohio once and play either X or UD and the other school will come to the Bronx. It's not really important b/c we will play equal number of home and away games and those temas that we play on the road will come to Rose Hill in the following year. (NT) -- bfg, Mon April 04, 2005 08:32:52
- As far as I know, other than the three A-10 teams that we'll play home-and-home, the league will determine where the remaining 10 conference games will be played. I suppose (for television and venue availability reasons - i.e. Saint Louis' use of the Savvis Center) we probably won't hear anything of the conference schedule until September. Once they determine those 10 games for this season, I believe the sites for those games would be reversed for next season (i.e. if we play Temple at home this season, we play them in Philly the next season). As far as the non-conference games are concerned, for lack of a better description, those games are simply based on how well you can negotiate dates/times/sites with other schools. Other than determining the calliber of schools we could play (in order to maintain the conference's overall RPI), the A-10 generally has little/no say in non-conference schedules.

What she has accomplished here at a program that was morbid for the first 18 years of its existance is incredible.

What are the behind the scenes intrigues, politics, and skullduggery, regarding the reconfiguration of Conference USA for the 2005-2006 season ?
[ Edit | View ]
- The team that's most affected is Memphis. Calipari got left in the dust by the loss of Louisville, Cincinnati, Marquette and DePaul to the Big East. Some of Calipari's coaching buddies have been telling him he should move on but many feel he can have a situation in the reconfigured, much watered-down Conf. USA like the one he had in the A-10 at UMass - meaning he could dominate the league. Any way you look at it, the A-10 will move ahead of Conf. USA in the league power ratings. This will mean more television coverage for the A-10. (NT) -- Rambacker, Mon April 04, 2005 14:02:35
- Conference USA has essentially become two leagues: a reformed Southwest Conference (SMU, Rice, Houston, UTEP, Tulsa, and Tulane), and the southern independents (Memphis, UAB, Marshall, UCF, ECU, Southern Miss.) The changes also create an all-sports league which will help them down the road.** (NT) -- DFW HOYA, Mon April 04, 2005 22:18:58

- Slambacker, you have to realize that while most of RB's initial posts are informative, and reveal an erudite understanding of the material covered in this forum, his rebuttals, particularly in response to posts contrary to his opinions, are often vindictive and puerile. RB also seems to possess a strong need to be correct, all the time, and to always have the last word. If RB were a callow adolescent, this behavior might be forgiven as youthful exuberance. If RB is an adult (chronologically), a serious problem is in evidence, as this panoply of behaviors indicates the manifestation of an OCD. It would be advisable for RB to seek professional help concerning this matter, or, as our Native Americans view children and the insane, with kindness, perhaps he might consider living on an Indian reservation !

- As basketball season wanes... I was wondering if we can open up the lacrosse debate... -- Ram1, Sun April 03, 2005 14:10:04 
Given Fordham's location, it seems LaCrosse would be a great fit.. Of course there would be a budget commitment (also Title IX consideration), but I think it would be a great opportunity. Also, now that we will have a new playing surface, Coffey's wear & tear is much less of a concern.. Given the relatively lower # of schools that play LaCrosse seems as if we could potentially jump in the fold quickly (at least from the perspective of playing a nice schedule..)...And btw Im not a lacrosse guy- I just think it's an interesting opportunity..

- The sport is picking up tremendously, and not just in the typical hotspot areas (Long Island, Maryland and Philadelphia) either. There is a good amount of competition around the country now, and more and more grade schools are offering lax as a Spring Sport. A friend of mine who owns an indoor soccer arena also has started with year round lax leagues for youth. He said it is by far the most populated league he has, and he turns away kids due to lack of field time. We'd be foolish given our location, easy access to recruits, and lack of field space the sport takes up not to change our club program into a Div. 1 team. (NT) -- Ram04, Sun April 03, 2005 16:19:00
- This may not be a bad men's sport to add. Since our male population seems to be dwindling it might be good for Fordham to investigate this. Also, it seems like mostly schools with better academic reputations offer this as a sport with scholarships. This may be a way for us to compete with these schools for academically qualified men. I know there may be Title 9 implications but I am sure there must be someway to accomodate this. (NT) -- JCMB, Sun April 03, 2005 18:38:01
- Does anyone know if LAX has/will/could possibly be on the Ath. Dept's or admin's radar screens? Does anyone know if there has been any official discussion on this? (NT) -- Ram1, Sun April 03, 2005 20:49:58
- I think the only way LAX will appear on their radar screens is if they get commercial pilots licenses and fly the New York-Los Angeles route for Delta. (NT) -- WildBlueYonder, Mon April 04, 2005 09:24:16
- Father McShane actually mentioned this, albeit in a somewhat offhand manner, this fall in a "town meeting" for university staff. I vaguely recall that he seemed to feel, in the abstract, that lax is a sport that would be a good one for Fordham to get known for, for the reasons mentioned above. Don't quote me, though, as it was a very brief moment in a meeting several months ago. (NT) -- mention, Mon April 04, 2005 09:55:45
- As much as it would be nice to have lacroose, don't you thinkg we first need to be able to get our EXISTING PROGRAMS experience some winning records. Also, new sports means more expenses. i would much rather us improve our facilities which is a huge priority before we add fine sports like lacroose. CHAKA (NT) -- CHAKA, Mon April 04, 2005 08:32:14
- Chaka, I agree. Let's work on our existing programs before expanding into new areas. The cost & Title IX implications of adding lacrosse would be a major hurdle--especially if we ever decide to go scholarship football. Who knows? If this west-side stadium is for real, maybe Fordham could eventually move to Division 1A, and play some opponents like BC and Army in front of decent-sized crowds. Of course, Fr. McShane seems dubious about this (whatever his feelings on lax) and, at best, this would be years in the future. Yet, In both academics and athletics, I'd rather see us doing a few things well rather than trying to do more things in a mediocre way. (NT) -- JCC, Mon April 04, 2005 14:36:22

- Stony Brook Coaching Candidates -- Rambacker, Mon April 04, 2005 10:33:15 
As per yesterday's NY Newsday, the top candidates for the Stony Brook head coach position are Matt Doherty(would he take this job?), George Washington Asst. Coach Steve Pikiell and LIU Coach Jim Ferry.
[ Edit | View ]
- via the A-10 board, here is the full blurb... "Stony Brook is narrowing its men's basketball coaching search. Former North Carolina coach Matt Doherty, George Washington assistant Steve Pikiell and LIU coach Jim Ferry, formerly of Adelphi, are key names in the running ... Stony Brook assistant Dagan Nelson met with UMass coach Travis Ford at the Final Four to interview as an assistant ... Retired SBU coach and former Fordham coach Nick Macarchuk will visit Miami Heat coach Stan Van Gundy, a longtime friend, this week in Miami. Macarchuk does not expect a job offer." (NT) -- bfg, Mon April 04, 2005 10:42:31
- I also heard a PC assistant was in the running? (NT) -- Ram, Mon April 04, 2005 11:17:40
- Notre Dame to UNC to Stony Brook. That is bizarre. On the other hand he may not have had any offers since leaving UNC. Speaking of UNC, if they win tonight I am tied in a pool. The tiebreaker is total pts. I picked 132, the other entrant picked 172. Any thoughts on which is a theoretically better pick. If the total is 151 or less I win. (NT) -- Jombo65, Mon April 04, 2005 11:17:52
- After you get fired when your players mutiny, I think it will make some ADs hesitent. Think it would be great for Stoney Brook, don't know how good it would be for Doherty. If UNC wins tonight I will win my pool! GO Heels!!! (NT) -- DebataRam, Mon April 04, 2005 11:28:36
- Another interesting note, Doherty was a frontrunner for the Tulsa opeing before they recently hired Doug Wojcik, a Tom Izzo assistant who was an assistant under Doherty at UNC. It seems that if you want a D1 head coaching job, go work under Izzo for a few years, its like a head coaching factory there. (NT) -- '02 Grad, Mon April 04, 2005 11:36:49
- Another article on Rec/Student Centers -- DamnRam, Fri April 01, 2005 11:50:10 
Definitely reinforces what has frequently been said here about how these centers are important to student quality of life. With all the schools which have or are building them it's looking like something needed just to stay in the recruiting game for students and faculty, and not just for athletes.
[ Edit | View ]
- Maybe after reading this article Fordham will re-paint and upgrade the lighting in the Campus Center and The Lombardi Facility. (NT) -- West Ram, Fri April 01, 2005 12:03:42
- Yes, that would be a nice place to start....but a lot more than better-painted walls and brighter lighting are required. Quality of life issues are very important to recruiting students in an increasingly competitive marketplace. While it may seem an incredibly silly issue to include in college selection, the reportedly poor food at Fordham figured in the decision of a few young people I know who decided to go elsewhere. Our campus is beautiful and our academics are first-rate, but many other aspects of campus life (including athletics) need a lot of improvement. (NT) -- Ram'98, Sat April 02, 2005 23:56:25
- If someone turns down Fordham because of the quality of food you probably don't want him/her anyway. (NT) -- Stout for 3, Sun April 03, 2005 00:17:23
- Didn't Rene Descartes say "You are what you eat?" (NT) -- FoodForThought, Sun April 03, 2005 09:55:15
- You must not be a Jesuit, Stout for 3. Did you ever see trucks making deliveries of food, wine & liquor at Loyola-Faber Hall? The Jesuits eat only premium-quality stuff, but a Princeton survey rated the food Fordham gives its student body as nearly the worst campus food in the country (I believe it was rated fourth from the bottom). It's perfectly reasonable that a prospective resident student would take this into account when college-shopping. Opportunities for fitness, recreation, entertainment AND good food are all quality-of-life amenities that sophisticated students expect (along with first-rate academics) when they plunk down tens of thousands of dollars. (NT) -- Ram'98, Sun April 03, 2005 10:41:41
- When FU students in the early 60's had a "belly full" of inferior and overpriced Campus Center food, they organized a boycott of the cafeteria. Students ferried in huge boxes of sandwiches from Willie's and other nearby delis, and the cafeteria soon surrendered--committing itself to better food and more reasonable prices. Alas, Willie's is long gone, and Sodexho Marriott has locked the majority of students into meal plans, so I guess students will just have to grin and bear it. Fordham should, however, look for a new vendor whenever their Sodexho Marriott contract expires. My son went to another metropolitan area college serviced by a company named Lackman. The food was 100% better than Sodexho Marriott. And, while we're at it, we should look for a replacement for Barnes & Noble which also has a stangle-hold on Fordham....but that's another story. (NT) -- Old Prof, Sun April 03, 2005 11:33:30
- Ram'98, my remark was tongue in cheek. The paint/ lighting comment referred to the refurbushing of the Gym rather than the planning for and building of a state of the art student convocation and athletic center that has been discussed extensively on this board in the past. But your point about food services is well taken. (NT) -- West Ram, Sun April 03, 2005 13:54:04

Fr. McShane was one of the main commentators on CBS radio today. Fr. did a terrific job and spoke about how he was a young priest when the Pope was elected in 1978. Because of his early work in Polish universities and as a college chaplain, the Pope was a role model for Fr. McShane.

Congratulations to the womens' softball team in winning 6 in a row as they swept Marist yesterday and being in 1st place in the A10. Special congrats go out to Coach Orchard in winning her 100th game at Fordham and doing it only 3 1/2 seasons. It appears from the articles that this is a real team effort as there are many different players mentioned as contributing to the wins.

- Nova Persepective -- Chaka, Wed March 30, 2005 20:49:25 
Pertaining to the perspective on FU Alum's feelings about Villanova:
1. I'm too young to know about the Porter or Digger stuff but apparently it is somewhat disturbing yet legitimate.
2. Yes there is some jealousy about Nova being in the Big East, & why not it is a better conference. Too bad our Admin didn't jump when the BE Door of opportunity presented itself.
3. Snobby... Absolutely. I grew up just minutes from Nova. It is nice school, extremely even par with FU but the kids students act like they are from Harvard. Drop the attitude.
4. Jay Wright. Once again we lost out on a solid, charasmatic coach who would be a great fit at FU, but our Admin couldn't get it done. Jealousy rings it's ugly ahead again & deservedly so. Wright has done a nice job & we ended up Sponge Bob Armani Pants. Hill set our program back about 10 years.
5. Some of us Football Fans remember the beating our beloved Rams took when we played the Cats in 1991-93?, when Coach Talley ran up the score on us. Keep in mind that there wereonly 5 catholic Schools playing Div. I or I-AA or FB at this time at FU was coached by Larry Glueck, a Nova Grad and Nova Hall of Famer. Talley is the biggest creep in college football. My three favorite college football teams are 1. Fordham, 2, Tennessee, and 3. whoever is playing Villanova.
6. A sizable portion of their strudent body comes from N. NJ and NY which is competition for FU, so rivalries exist but these kids seem to think Villanova is the mecca. (see #3, it is a very good school, but no better than Fordham and not Ivy League).
7. Facilities: Granted Nova does not have thee greatest facilities, they are substantially better than FU's. Personally I kinda like the ski lodge as it is cozy, unique, & has an ideal capacity 6,400. Also, they play 3-4 game at the Wachovia Center & draw well & we can't even sniff a doubleheader at the Garden. FU's answer is to renovate the oldest gym in America and keep the same capacity, turf Coffey and keep the HS football & baseball feel. FU should have developed a massive Fundraising campaign to EXPAND Rose Hill Gym & double capacity to 6,400 while also expanding on to Lombardi for a real Rec Center with a Real Weight Room, Offices, Locker Rooms, Hall of Fame, etc. and build a real Football Stadium (not metal) with a Track & Lights. This would all fit on the area that is now the gym and Coffey Field. The only exception is Baseball would have to move somewhere else (sorry).
8. No Home & Home: Frank should have demanded a home & home or not have scheduled the game. Period.
9. Marketing. Former Nova AD DeFillipo (now at BC) did an excellent job marketing Nova. Licensing, PR, TV Games, Scheduling, etc. Marketing is four letter word around Rose Hill & Damn Ram knows what I mean here. If we only had a Athletic Department that gave a sh!t, God knows what we could do.
10. Since I had 9 reasons I had to think of a 10th. Recent Tradition/Winning (last 25 years): No doubt FU has struggled in various sports with not much to cheer about, but Nova has been very successful. They brought back FB & have been a perennial Top 20-30 team, Hoops won a National Championship and consistently has a winning record, track is among the nations elite and most other sports are at the very least respectable.
So there you have it, a summary of why Rams Fans may refer to Nova Fans as should I say... ryhmes with wussies & not Wildcats.

- Vanillanova is a nice suburban school for nice suburban kids. They've had their successes in athletics, but many tinged with scandal. Better than most, but hardly the sainted ones they pretend to be. (NT) -- John, Wed March 30, 2005 21:55:55
- Chaka, good post. I have nothing against Nova. A good friend from HS went there and I spent several weekends there and it was a lot of fun. A couple of buddies from law school are VU grads and they are great guys. There are snobby and condescending blow hards everywhere, even at FU. I think you hit the nail on the head when you raised the jealousy issue for that I think is at the essence of everything. The Catholic schools in the Big East are what we would like to be, feel we could have been and are striving to become. What separates us from them were competent Administations and Athletic Departments. Finally, say what you want about Nova but 25 years ago they played most likely the perfect college game on the biggest stage. (NT) -- RickFC77, Wed March 30, 2005 22:23:19
- Its amazing what sports does to academic reputation. In the early 1980s, Fordham was generally perceived as slightly better academically than Nova. Since, the Championship, Nova has passed Fordham in terms of reputation, albeit slightly. As I alluded to yesterday, I believe tboth institutions are pretty equal and when I say pass, I refer to those annual rankings we all love. I just think it is incredible what sports can do for a University. (NT) -- Novafan, Thu March 31, 2005 10:15:52

- Chaka -- great post. I know a ton of people who went to VU from Northern New Jersey, where they get off thinking that the school is "better" than Fordham and "Ivy-like" is beyond me. The school is indeed "even par" with Fordham at best. In my opinion, the snobby dimension comes into play based on the location of the schools. I am convinced that some 'Nova students (parents) from New Jersey would not dare go to a school in the BRONX, but have no problem with the suburbs of Philly. (NT) -- NJRAMFAN, Thu March 31, 2005 06:58:32
- Ever notice that some kids' appraisal of their schools is based on the "toniness" of the neighborhood in which the school is located, as opposed to the quality of what actually goes on inside the classrooms, research facilities, etc.?

- I don't know about better coach. When you're in the Big East, you have a better shot at recruiting the ranked players. DW is in the process of turning around a program that was at rockbottom (2-26) in a league that is not as heralded as the Big East, with , this year, only two upperclassmen, one of whom was a Senior with more heart than athletic ability. I think you have to take a wait and see attitude on who is the "better coach". (NT) -- West Ram, Thu March 31, 2005 14:55:21
- It's easy to say your program is good when you schedule lots of programs which don't pose a serious threat. I wonder if Nova will continue to play us as our program continues to gain strength. St. John's, another Big Least team, won't. I wonder if your "better coach" would be willing to leave the "better facilities" of Nova's campus and bring his "better program" to play us at RH? (NT) -- Elephant Hunter, Thu March 31, 2005 17:30:14

- I came here as a neutral observer but you guys have been downright insulting. I forgot Fordham's athletes are all saints. You know as well as I do that Nova's allegations were a complete joke. (NT) -- Novafan, Fri April 01, 2005 09:14:55
- When Nova had some of its players suspended a year or two ago at the beginning of the season, Nova bumped a previously scheduled game vs. St. Joe's (or was it Temple?) at the last minute in order to play several cupcakes and thus blatantly game their RPI. Now THAT was a joke, made funnier by the alternating silence and rationalizations of many Nova fans who felt entitled to engage in this shameful practice without criticism. I guess ethics are different in the Big East. Rather than consider what we say "insulting", you could choose to look at our observations as educational and enlightening, an opportunity to get outside of the groupthink that afflicts many Big East fan bases. (NT) -- DamnRam, Fri April 01, 2005 10:02:38
- It was vs. Temple. Villanova was trying to get in as many games as possible before heading out to Hawaii for the Maui Classic. From what I recall they decided to play 3 non-DI schools out in California before heading to Maui so that their players could get a big part or all of their suspensions over with before the tournament. Chaney went nuts over this and after a bunch of back and forth they decided to play their game at midnight (or one minute past) of the first day of permitted NCAA competition. I believe Nova wanted to reschedule the Temple game, not do away with it entirely. Either way, in my opinion, it was turned into a much bigger deal than it was which should come as no surprise given that John Chaney was involved. (NT) -- ace93, Fri April 01, 2005 10:14:10
- Chaney is definitely a one-man drama show. That said, Nova's behavior clearly circumvented the spirit of what suspensions are supposed to be about. Bumping and rescheduling Temple for a midnight game just after the suspension period ended only further highlighted their lack of ethics. To some degree I blame the A10 and Chaney for letting Nova use them like that, and certainly the NCAA for allowing Nova to end-run their sanctions. I would blame the Big East for doing nothing, but expecting their management to enforce integrity is like expecting a dog to whistle. (NT) -- DamnRam, Fri April 01, 2005 11:43:33
- The more I read this thread, the more I think many of your fans are extremely jealous, and have a huge inferiority complex to go along with a “we are holier than thou” attitude Sorry the Big East doesn't have the ethics of the A-10. C’mon, all I have to do is point to a few of the thugs you had on your team a couple of years back. Don’t get me started on some of the other programs in your league. Asking a favor of a Big 5 school to reschedule a game? That is bad ethics? Give me a break, folks. You guys know as well as I do that in the grand scheme of things, Nova is a clean program. Did you see the academic rankings for NCAA teams in the USA Today recently? I realize I opened this discussion but many of the opinions are absurd. You’ve been hanging out with St. Joe’s fans too much. (NT) -- Novafan, Fri April 01, 2005 12:08:05
- You are getting the midnight thing mixed up. It is not worth getting into all the details right now b/c I will probably just confuse things further, but I think you are making a mountain out of a mole hill here. (NT) -- ace93, Fri April 01, 2005 16:56:31
- Re: #5 - I remembered us playing Nova pretty tough in Fball in the early 90's. I thought we only played them twice ... once in '92 when they were ranked #2 or #3 in the country and the final was something like 6 - 3 and the other time it wasn't as close but was stil a close game, no?
