Subject: Pathetic recruiting


So...here we are in early May and we have failed to sign a single player we've targeted. We are scrounging for leftovers who have zero offers from other D-I schools. No one even close to filling the roles of Reese or Molson. And no decent big , just another poor player from a dismal team, and a kid from Holland who had no other interest.



At least Parrotta and Baron's coaches could win recruiting battles. We will have little chance to beat the Iona's and Siena's with no shooters or rebounders or defenders in the paint.

Sad but so true. We are destined for the bottom of a very poor Conference. The Program is in free fall with this coaching staff. And it appears that we are stuck with them for the next few years. I see absolutely nothing to be excited about for the coming season. Not pessimism. Just realism.

Reggie and his team should make an effort to do this.

To say we loyal fans should just sit back and watch our program die on the vine because our coaches lack the ability to recruit and retain quality student athletes is outrageous. We search the Deep South for players when upstate and NYC area talent are overlooked. And what happened to our effort to recruit in nearby Canada?

Reggie has become an embarrassment surrounded by his weakling yes men. Refusing to connect with loyal alums, canceling the traditional post season banquet, and trying to attack a critical fan after the tournament loss are sad facts. The reason the banquet attendance was dropping is due to his disrespect for fans and unwillingness to face accountability for losing our two best players . Bill Maher must step up and intervene, not just let this sorry state continue.

Why not just stay at home all Winter if that the way you feel. I'm going to give this staff a chance, and see what happens. I'm sure we will be competitive, and go Griffs.

It sure looks like the Griffs will put a pretty good team
on the floor, and if so the KAC will be packed. Please do us a favor and stay at home. Go Griffs!!!

If my calculations are correct, if all the “whiners” stay home, our attendance will be just under 12. Which basically includes Reggie’s family and the 3 people from here who think they are unwavering loyalists.

Just to be clear, those who sit on here and say they will support this team no matter what are sheep. You aren’t doing the program any favors, in fact by thinking everything is great and sitting there on your hands you are the ones who are aiding the burial of this program.

Us “whiners” are the real supporters, the ones who give a damn. We have identified a problem and choose not to ignore it, but in fact want to offer suggestions to fix it. Those who have brought those concerns off this board and to Bill Maher’s attention are indeed the most loyal of them all as you refuse to let this program go down without a fight.

So us whiners will keep up the good fight, while you “loyalists” will sit there and say “aw shucks” as they lose yearly in the PIG and wave to Pat Beilein as he drives by with a MAAC championship they could’ve been the Griffs if our administration would stop playing checkers and start playing chess with the program.

I think your calculations are off a bit. The people that support the Griff's way out number the doom and gloomers, which are maybe 12 people. Who said things are great? They aren't great, but IMO not nearly as bad as some want to make it out to be. It's great to bring your concerns to Bill's attention and are passionate about the Griff's. But then to bash them is a strange way to show that you want to be part of the solution to making things better. It really helps with recruiting too. Go Griff's!
