Re: SACRED HEART AT NU GAME TWO

I don’t post much but I do view the forum regularly to stay abreast of Niagara U sports. The hockey team since David Burkholder departed has been stuck in neutral. The current coach apparently works hard and says all the right things. In order to excite the NU fan base at this level of college hocke...

Re: Stags at NU : 1 PM : ESPN+

I was encouraged after the way Niagara battled Ohio State and Xavier to start the season. After dropping two winnable games on homecourt, my expectations have been lowered significantly. Maybe the Purples are just a middle of the road MAAC team at this point. Based on what I observed, the team is la...

Re: Go BONNIES!!!

Re: Scrimmage: SU over NU

"recognize the insult that they have caused to many." I didn't realize all of the Boeheim's players stood and honored the flag and national anthem. I tend to agree this is an embarrassment for the school. This speaks poorly of their lack of respect for others that have sacrificed in so man...

Re: Scrimmage: SU over NU

Lots of excuses which is understandable, but Bryant only lost by 1 point last week at the Dome. Shooting 27% and 16% (treys) from the floor is amateur hour.

Re: 2020 Hoops recruiting

We need some help in the front court. However, all is not lost. The Purps will have 6'6 -215 Nwandu the transfer from Lemoyne available for the upcoming season. I think he's more of swing player (3) than a power forward. He averaged 16 points and 5 rebounds during his last season at Lemoyne. Also, C...

Re: NCAA moves toward allowing athlete compensation

Is there a difference now between a college pro and a professional under contract with minor or major league team? The lines between the two have become very blurred . Who is going to enforce compliance, the coaches ? Bad move by the NCAA.

Re: You Tube: 2005 MAAC Championship - Niagara-Rider

When the noise got louder, he called over to see how many people were there and if the party was going to end soon. There were only 5 of us. Still amazes me that the cops weren't called on us.
Very amusing!
