I'm hearing passion -- which is good. But I'm also hearing,throwing hands up and giving up?Why? OK -- the MAAC isn't the Big East. John Calipari proved you can be a Big Fish in a smaller league -- and he and Memphis were denied the Big East.

St. Peter's can be as big as you make it -- move the games to the Armory. Get the community -- corporate community involved -- bring in some big names -- win a few. Get some recruits- Niagara does it. Gonzaga does it. Xavier of Ohio does it.Duquesne is doing it and the Armory has it all over their facility.

I say keep the passion--don't give up.I will lead the Peacocks and Peahens to the promised Land if given the AD job.

You are so far removed from reality it is kind of scary.Also just what is it that Niagara does?

Well, for one they've made the NCAA Tournament twice in the last 4 years.(Niagara).

And Wagner -- what do they have over SPC? Reality? Give me the reigns and SPC will be back.

Reality is, winless basketball seasons.
No crowds.
Tell me how Wagner wins 20-plus games? Tell me how Xavier of Ohio does it? Or Gonzaga? Or Duquesne coming back?
Believe Nick -- it can happen -- I can do it -- moreover, I want to do it-- bring the Peacock Pride back.

Passionate fans like you and the rest deserve it.

Have you ever been to the armory? Not the answer. We should play one or two big OOC games at the Rock.

I've been to the Armory -- remember Elnardo, Don Kennedy and Bernie Ockene -- in fact, I'd wager that those players like EW and R. Rinaldi attended SPC because of the big-time atmosphere of the Armory -- and it certainly beats the Y Center... Think of it, is the Armory better than Wagner's facility? Duquesne's? St. Francis (NY)? Certainly -- it can be the centerpiece for the community -- and corporate Jersey City would attend...we'll have them sell it out for each game -- perhaps post-game receptions at the Armory with alums as well.

I say the potential is endless.

Let's take SPC to the penthouse..

Unrealistic dreams of an era 40 years ago.
