Re: Around the League

Richmond hires former Bucknell AD, John Hardt, as their new Athletics Director. Having no knowledge on this person before I read the article, it seems like a good hire for UR.

Re: Around the League

I'm not sure how much of Bucknell's basketball success can be laid in Hardt's lap. Most of the success of the mid-2000's Bucknell teams is certainly due to head coach Pat Flannery. Certainly, the two subsequent coaches that were hired during Hardt's term have proven successful which argues well for him and others on the selection committees.

What the article doesn't emphasize is that both fundraising and facilities improved significantly during his tenure. He oversees a relatively large number of athletes given the size of the school and the competitive aggregate success of Bucknell's 27 varsity sports has been very good, although that was to some extent true before he got there.

It is, but only after Chaney retired and Temple left the conference.

Re: Around the League

Bona fans, what's up with Adams? Heard he was in a boot last week and now a crutch today? Is this precautionary or something more serious?

Re: Around the League

Any word on the Saint Louis situation? I am aware that 3 of the players involved did not participate in the exhibition game a few days ago. Are they going to play at all this year?

Danica Roem (D) has defeated Bob Marshall (R) in HD13. She will be America's first transgender state legislator.

How is this A10 news? Danica Roem is a Bonnie.

Interesting, NBC shows Danica leading 57-43 with 0% reporting.
