Subject: Kevin Eakin was seen in the 4th quarter of the Jets / Lions game of 8/12/2005. Only had three plays, but the team was able to set up for a 40 yard field goal to help secure the victory. Work hard, Mr. Eakin. So nice to see you on the Jets Roster.

Subject: Kevin Eakin finished the NFLEL season as the 2nd rated passer in the league. He displayed physical talent, leadership and lots of football smarts to lead an injury laden club in Frankfurt. He is on the active roster for the NY Jets going into preseason training camp. I know he will love competing for one of those 3 QB spots. Good Luck, Mr. Eakin!

Subject: Kevin Eakin had a terrific game on Saturday 5/21/2005 in Germany with his Frankfurt NFLEL team. He only played the first two quarters and was 16 for 20 resulting in 2 touchdowns and 202 yards. He was intercepted once. It reminded me of some of those Ram games when he got into a flow and just moved the ball up and down the field. Dave Clausen knew he had something special when he brought this kid in to play at Fordham and he is still performing at a high level on a much grander scale. I think the Jets may have found something!

Subject: Duquesne to Build New Recreation Facility & More. Why not Fordham?

New AD to be part of major changes
Duquesne president's role in athletics grows
Saturday, May 14, 2005

By Phil Axelrod, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

The new athletic director at Duquesne University will report directly to president Charles Dougherty in a significant change in the chain of command for the school's athletic department.

Brian Colleary, who resigned earlier this week after 16 years as athletic director, answered to Rev. Sean Hogan, vice president of student life.

"I don't want to manage the athletic department," Dougherty said yesterday. "I want someone I can trust to run athletics. We want to have a new athletic director as soon as possible, but the No. 1 job is to get the right person. We want to get a basketball person of some sort.

"I think it will be a buyer's market."

The job should become more attractive with Dougherty's announcement that the university's board of directors has approved $20 million to upgrade athletic facilities -- $2 million for renovations of Palumbo Center and $18 million for a multipurpose recreational facility on Forbes Avenue.

Dougherty said the recreational facility is projected to be completed and available for the 2006-07 academic year, and the renovations to Palumbo Center should be completed by this fall.

Rev. Hogan will chair the committee that will make a national search and recommend candidates to Dougherty, who will hire the new athletic director. Paul Hightower, the current assistant director of athletics, will serve as interim athletic director throughout the search.

Dougherty said he decided not to renew Colleary's contract, but he wouldn't comment when asked if Colleary received a buyout.

Colleary, who was unavailable for comment, is a finalist for the athletic director's job at Georgia State University and a candidate at the University of Buffalo. He was a finalist at Canisius, which hired Bill Maher.

"With the new facilities and new leadership, this is the dawning of a new era of Duquesne athletics," Dougherty said. "We felt we needed somebody to come in fresh to help renew Duquesne's commitment to winning. We need to get men's basketball back in shape to be competitive. Duquesne is synonymous with basketball."

The Dukes have had 11 consecutive losing seasons, the past four under Danny Nee. Two years ago, Dougherty extended Nee's contract through the 2008 season. Duquesne was 8-22 last season and 39-78 in Nee's four years.

"The first three years marked improvement every year. Last year there was reason to believe it would be a breakout year. It was a terrible year that was unacceptable to the administration, unacceptable to the fans and unacceptable to Nee," Dougherty said. "I'm looking for a much better year this year."

As for Nee's contract at a reported $300,000 annually, Dougherty said, "I don't think anybody has job security, no matter what."

Nee blasted the administration last year for not providing enough support for his program. "I swim in a sea of criticism. That's part of my life," Dougherty said. "He had a string of very tough losses and that was an emotional reaction. It's over and forgotten about."

Dougherty would like to lure back the fans who have forgotten about Duquesne basketball over the years. "One of the jobs of the new athletic director will be reaching out to our alums. We've got to rebuild the Dukes Court. It hasn't met in a year and doesn't have any energy."

Dougherty said the athletic budget and facilities put the Dukes in the middle of the pack in the Atlantic 10 Conference.

"We want to find a new athletic director who can bring us a new level of excellence in all our sports," he said of the 20 varsity teams. "It's difficult to have excellence across the board. If we have to drop a sport or two and put money in another sport, I'm open to that. I'm not coming out and saying we're going to make cutbacks. There's no question we're putting our emphasis on basketball."

Did we award the last scholarship?
Until we get a new board I hope no one minds posting basketball on the football board. Fordham alums support all our programs. Thanks

Subject: New Duquesne AD to report directly to the President


Author:

[ Edit | View ]

Date Posted: 10:20:23 05/14/05 Sat

Duquesne got a head start on Fordham yesterday by announcing that their new AD will report directly to the President. Former AD Brian Colleary had reported to the VP of Student Services, as is the current reporting structure at Fordham. Is there a major Div. 1 university remaining in the country that still has the AD reporting to a VP? We need to get going here.

Here is the Duquesne announcement:


Duquesne Athletics
Hightower named interim Director of Athletics
Search to fill vacant AD position to begin immediately


May 13, 2005

University President Dr. Charles J. Dougherty announced Friday that he has accepted the resignation of Director of Athletics Brian Colleary.

"The University thanks Brian for his service and wishes him well in future endeavors," said Dr. Dougherty, adding that the new athletic director, who will report directly to the president, will be asked to comprehensively examine Duquesne's athletics programs to ensure Duquesne sports programs rise to the next level.

The search for a new athletic director will begin immediately. Current Assistant Athletic Director for Business, Paul Hightower, will serve as interim Director of Athletics until a permanent replacement is named.

Does anyone know if Fordham will be in the A-10 Championship game at noon on Saturday? If so, I want to be there to root them on. Fast pitch softball is an incredible game and it will be terrific to see such a good team in action. Go Lady Rams!

NaQuinton signed with the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the CFL. Looks like he'll be battling for the MLB spot or as a SAM on the practice roster. We'd like to hear more about him from those fans that know him. Please come post on http://www.riderfans.com. This website is the best place on the web to get updates on NaQuinton Gainous.

Received my renewal for season tickets and like last year "due to the construction of the parking garage, parking for the 2005 season will be extremely limited" (according to the accompanying letter from Ticket Operations). Is this accurate, I had thought it was once again deferred? Hopefully, I am wrong and they did not just change the date and copy last year's letter.

Richmond will apparently name Air Force Head Coach Chris Mooney as their new Head Basketball Coach tomorrow, according to Dave Katz from espn.com. Mooney is a Princeton grad and a disciple of Pete Carril's Princeton offense, which was used with success by John Belein during his tenure as coach of the Spiders.

For those of you interested in what ever happened to PG Chris Ross from McLennon Junior College, who visited Fordham several months ago, he has signed with Marshall.

Will Fordham sign PG Brian Johnson(Class of '05) from Mt. St. Joseph's in Baltimore?

Stay tuned.

Isaiah Thomas met with PJ Carlesimo today to discuss the Knicks Head Coach position. Thomas has already met with Phil Jackson but could PJ be on his way back to New York to coach the Knicks?

A potential major boost for Fordham Basketball.

It's a sad day now that ACE93 has reached his frustration level with the children who have polluted the basketball board with their petty squabbles. I, for one, am sad to see it go since it was always a great spot for information, both good and bad, about the way Fordham Athletics operates. To Andres, BFG, and the other anonymous moderators there: I salute your efforts. Hopefully you will find an opportunity in the future to resurrect your efforts. To Rob: I hope you can put up with the increased traffic and unfortunately problems here. To Rambacker, Ramfan, GuyF, AFF adherents and other anonymous trolls: next time leave your personal agendas at home. They are counter-productive and have forced a good man to give up something he obviously loved in the service of his alma mater. Now that we're down to one board we don't want to lose this one as well.
