The SNY package brings the total number of Fordham men's televised basketball games to 17.


Proof positive that there are too many cable TV sports channels out there.
I get SNY on my cable in Richmond. Go Fordham!

Re: Around the League

Sporting News NCAAB ‏@sn_ncaab 5m
@ts nmike names 10 coaches who need to have a big season. You'll recognize these names. http://bit.ly/10coaches

In need of a rebound

Tom Pecora, Fordham


Record at school: 34-85
'13-'14 record: 10-21


Pecora proved beyond a reasonable doubt he is a capable head coach during his tenure at Hofstra, delivering four 20-win seasons in his final six years and six times recording double-digit victories in the Colonial Athletic Association. And then Pecora made the dangerous decision to accept the single worst major coaching job in Division I.

We call it a “major” job grudgingly; most members of the Atlantic 10 operate at that level. Fordham never really has.

The Rams once were a very fine mid- to low-major program, particularly when they belonged to the Patriot League. Then Fordham and the A-10 collectively made the foolish decision that merely being stationed in the New York metropolitan area meant the school could thrive on a wider stage.

Since the move, Fordham has had one winning season. The move happened 19 seasons ago. Fordham isn’t likely to double that total this season, but it wouldn’t hurt to come close.

Re: Around the League

It really is time for Fordham to consider whether the A10 is actually hurting them.

Re: Around the League

The Atlantic 10 sent six teams to the NCAA Tournament last season, and CoxHub analysts Chris DiSano, Vin Parise, & Adam Finkelstein look at the conference heading into the 2014-15 campaign. Starting off with the cream of the crop in the conference, the VCU Rams, they then move on to potential sleepers and the overall strength of the league.

That was awful. At least Jon Roth talks about more than 4 teams in the A10.

Well played, Mauer...just because it's defunct doesn't mean we're still not in it. As long as she doesn't mention that other league in St. Louis, we're fine.

The part about the Patriot League is not very accurate. We had a lot of solid years in the MAAC and even the good PL teams were made up of MAAC recruits. Our PL teams after our first two years in that league sucked. The move from the PL to the A10 was poorly done, but I think it could have worked from the MAAC to the A10 for a few years, but hard to say if it would have been the same long-term.

To be fair, this video was not intended to be viewed by fans of all teams in the league. It's intended target audience is Rhode Island fans.

‏@NorthPoleHoops
Joseph Chartouny, Canadian PG out of Montreal, Quebec has committed to Fordham University of the A10 #NCAA

********


Was teammate with Fordham freshman Nemanja Zarkovic. Played against Fordham on their Canadian trip last month. Scored 29 against us in a loss. That of course needs to be taken with a grain of salt given who was defending him (i.e., someone on Fordham).

All I know is that he was a priority for this staff and they got their man.
