Why one or the other; why not both? Why not more? The Cage Club planned events for fans of the Griffs and for the team and coaches. Since the Parrotta purge and the Barron and now Witherspoon eras the coaching staff and fans, especially alumni and students, have become more and more estranged IMO. Does Parrotas'"Coaches Circle" still exist? If so, what does it do besides write checks? It's good to hear that the coaching staff is trying to find players. Why do they need the added burden of planning social events, even if it's only one? I think you would be well advised to reinstate the Cage Club as the vital organization instituted by Nick Macarchuck when Father Demske recognized the value of D1 basketball to Canisius, saved the program from extinction and Nick was brought in from Providence College to coach. "Those were the days my friend...".

Be grateful for its existence it provides a significant amount of financial resources for the basketball program. I’m all for bringing back the Cage Club, start the process. I’m not sure the current coaching staff would know how to successfully partner with it.

It's good to know it exists. It would be good if it received some publicity and credit. As to starting the process for the return of the Cage Club a committee of about six volunteers or so would be a good place to start. It should include a couple of students and recent alumni/ae as well as former members. BfloGriff is game. Anyone else? Make your selves known.

Bill's message is a pathetic attempt to justify Reggie's lack of leadership and wholesale contempt for alums who care about the future of our program. Not to mention his refusal to honor the achievements of our only remaining quality player, Malik Johnson. Small wonder why our coaches cannot sign a single decent player for next season
