Subject: HOW THINGS HAVE CHANGED FROM LONG AGO


WHAT IF…….we played Providence, Seton Hall, Temple, Georgetown, St. Johns, Villanova, Syracuse, Boston College & Xavier

WHAT IF……we went 6 wins and 3 loses against them…..OH, AND THE THREE LOSES WERE BY A “TOTAL” OF NINE POINTS

WHAT IF……we played the 7th, 8th & 10th ranked teams and went 2 wins and one lose

WELL…..in the past we did all that in the same season!

Will we ever do it again…..NOT if we are playing in the MAAC; NOT if we are playing at the KAC; and NOT with RW at the helm.

IF YOU AIM LOW THAT IS USUALLY WHAT YOU HIT!

How many millions does your vision cost? Where is the money coming from?

We all agree the MAAC isn’t great but where do we go and who would want us? Our location has always been an issue for the MAAC. If we had a vision; many years ago we would have pushed for the Eastern 8 and then the A10. Schools like Duquesne, Bona would have been a nice fit for us. But we didn’t go that route and now we’re stuck. I’m sure the MAAC would cry if us and Niagara left. Unfortunately we’re tied to Niagara, no conference is going to just come to WNY to play us. We definitely need to put some money into the infrastructure / facilities. The school needs to make this a priority. Go Griffs!

This is a collective responsibility folks. If you want a better conference, donate more, and help fund raiser significantly more to build a new venue.

Long Ago indeed! Back in the Saturday night at the Aud days,when the students,alumni and general public showed up in large numbers. Back when freshmen couldn't play varsity sports and it was assumed they would play three more years. Back when Syracuse and the other big football schools hadn't yet really discovered basketball. But Jim Brown was on the Syracuse freshman team. Back when the Griffs were ranked as high as 6th in the nation. Back before the CC admissions gurus rejected Bob Lanier, who wanted to be only a Griff, and gave SBU the biggest gift in its' history, previously or since. Talk about "Aim Low". These days CC itself seems to be in a malaise, a funk weighted down by how to raise $35-40 million to complete Science Hall as originally envisioned and trying to sustain and grow the enrollment it the age of free tuition to the public colleges and SUNY. Perhaps the recently announced partnership with Catholic Health and the new Physicians Assistant program will start to snap CC out of the doldrums. Perhaps something will appear on the horizon for the Griffs also. But this past season was just depressing. Please no post-season buy in event.

Agree with BfloGriff, our ship as we knew it has sailed and is not coming back in any similar form, not sure what future does or can hold for school in general, if we've added some additional health related majors that is great, free tuition at suny schools and rise of UB basketball were not on my horizon five years ago, we need to catch or make a break for us somehow, I think for game setting we need to promote band more and create a setting for locals and families to come.

The Canisius band isn’t going to attract more than a few to the KAC. It’s a good high school gym. The only way to fill it is to improve the product on the court and maintain a program that consistently goes to the dance. Unfortunately, I don’t see it. See Newton’s first law of motion.

An object either remains at rest or continues to move at a constant velocity, unless acted upon by a force. I think we've made an effort but this current coaching staff and their actions have us thinking differently. Yes, Baron left us unexpectantly but not conducting a search now in hindsight was a mistake.
