Re: Super Bowl Sunday

My initial post has certainly taken a much different direction than intended. Why have Vincentian schools sunk so low....cursed?? Bad decisions?/ From Google: "the Jesuits had three goals: to establish highly disciplined schools, to propagate Catholic beliefs through missionary work, and to com...

Super Bowl Sunday

The Super Bowl is a few short weeks away and every year at Super Bowl time I am reminded of the first Super Bowl.....January 15, 1967. On that day Niagara and St. Bonaventure played basketball in the old Aud in Buffalo in front of a packed house. Few cared about the stupid bowl game. Everybody was t...

Re: NU ALUMNUS AUTHOR RELEASE

I was fortunate enough to read several chapters during the process. This is a very well written book guaranteed to make you laugh and cry. There has to be a chapter on Joe's time at NU that many of us will relate to. I asked Santa for a copy and I plan to purchase a second one to give to the local l...

Re: NU at NJIT (1-9)

I just checked the score sheet/stats. It's demoralizing to play 7 on 5 basketball---especially when you are the team playing with 5. This was a 9 point loss by NU.....NU shot 12 free throws; NJIT shot 26 free throws......wow!! Three NU players had 4 fouls only one NJIT player had 4 or more. 21 total...

Re: NU MBB AT SJU SAT. NOV 26 : FOX Sports 2

I just checked the stat sheet.....how do you smell "home cooking"?? Looks like SJU shot 38 free throw's and NU shot 16!! Hard to win 7 on 5.
I hope JHart took his BP meds before the game :). ;)

Re: NU @ Maryland : B10+ Network

If I was a betting man, I would take NU and the points. GP teaches defense so I don't think they will be blown out. First game of season for both teams.

Re: The Boss & NU

Saw Bruce in Buffalo in 2009. At NU I remember Frankie Valli (with an I) and The Young Rascals. But my all time favorite was Wilmer and The Dukes. I was a "Wilmerite". Followed Wilmer all over: Geneva Club 86, Fairport VI, Pitttsford VI, Bristol Mt., Gates Bowl, Inferno at Glen Park...oh w...

Re: NU allocates 2 million to the North End Church project

Solar panels can become a revenue source. Any unused electricity generated goes to the power grid and the owner receives a check for the electric sold. My son has solar panels on his house and barn and that's how it works. At NU, I suspect lower usage in the summer so a lot of electric would go to t...
