haha, nice. The NY Post is barely a paper, so I have no doubt that half of what gets printed hasn't been fact-checked or edited. Love their headlines though. "Cocaine question puts Bush behind 8-ball" is a personal favorite.

IMO your selection does not come close to the infamous headline in the Post'"Headless man found in topless bar".

Re: A10 Presidents call meeting

As a Fordham Alumnus, I would like to see us (sorry to say) leave the A-10. The conference and Fordham would be better off. I believe that a conference like the patriot league - would be a better fit. We have shown no ability to compete in this conference. We have no modern facility, leadership, and a fan base that practically doesn't exist.

Fordham has never had a storied basketball program. Some hang onto the one year we had in the early 70s, under Digger Phelps, as our legacy. It was more a blip on the radar, something that was never sustained, despite several half-baked attempts. In the Fordham community, this conversation is taking place at several levels, and a move from my understanding, is gettings serious consideration - as it should.

Fordham has always been philosophically, as evidence by our donor base, a football school. To this day, even though it was 70+ years ago, our national prominence still has an effect on us. Despite playing at the FCS level, our enthusiasm for the sport has not diminished, in fact, it remains at the highest point in decades.

But this is not about Fordham football, is about Fordham basketball. And for those of us who want to see a winning program, one that we can support wholeheartedly, must realize we need to be in the correct conference. Winning matters as they say, unfortunately, it is just not happening in the A-10.

I'll continue the sidetrack. Today NY Post Cover headline is pretty good. Pic of a hot model wearing a red bra. "OUT WITH A BANG!" "Model: I want to have sex before the world ends tomorrow. Exclusive."
