GW Men's Hoops » USC and UCLA To The Big 10? » 7/01/2022 10:31 am

College sports are a total mess. Nashville's Sports headline today was "Vandy lost heavy in transfer portal". Vandy baseball had 15 players enter the transfer portal this offseason.  But since they are in the SEC they can reload. Still, why even recruit if players won't stay.? Make players pay for the coaching instructions they get?  This present situation is just too unstable.

My doctor, who graduated from Davidson, told me this. He wasn't aware of how much the coaching scene has changed. That almost all of the older coaches are getting out of the business because there is NO stability in rosters anymore. Just a crapshoot.

danjsport, I'm sure most people will agree and demand that every family that had their name changed by immigration or other type of prejudice entity in this country should receive reparations from the US government. The suffering and pain that was involved in immigrating to this hostile country should be compensated.  That probably means most immigrants from the 1870's on. 
As for gas prices, the oil embargo many years ago showed us that slowing down on the highways does save gas. and money. However, on a recent 500 mile trip I saw that No one was slowing down. People were still doing 80 to 90 MPH in heavy rain storms in gas guzzling vehicles. So many dumb people on the roads today.

Rising, about the Board. Yellow Slugs sounds good, Oh!  Cal Tech has dubs on that one. Rebels sounds real good. But Buff and not Grey.

Does the U. of Mississippi have a new mascot now? Was Washington a rebel against England? GW Rebels? No, rebelling against England is offensive. Get rid of George Washington and Columbia College, Topple the Washington Monument, the "Committee" says it will bring unity to the GW? community.

,The 1972 Cherry Tree had a lot of Hatchet articles about what was happening at GW from 1968-1972. The May 4th, 1971 Hatcher had a great article of a real riot.  Many of us were in the middle of this by just living in a GW dorm.  GW students experienced many riots through this time period.  Articles from the Hatchet ( November 5, 1968, November 8, 1968, November 17, 1969, February 29, 1970 (TDA-The Battle of Foggy Bottom) May 11, 1970, and especially MayDay1971.) cover them very well. Having a GW ID card kept most of us safe and allowed us to observe what was happening on our campus, which was pretty insane with pepper gas, tear gas and Mace. People without one were arrested.
While watching this January 6th thing live I kept on wondering when the black suited, white CDU (Civil Disorder Unit) helmeted giants  were going to show up and smash these protestors.  Every step the procession took while on the way to the Capital I expected the CDU  guys followed by the Army to show up. They never did and the mob just walked into the Capital.  Where were the CDU guys (who all GW students feared) ?  Were they defunded? A total failure of security.

I will not support stupidity.  Hope the people who supported this will donate in the future. Idiots just divided the community.

Too bad he  got hurt in the 1970 regional against Villanova. They may have beaten UCLA.

I guess he should write VOID across the face of his diploma.

Not good at all.  But everyone does what they want to do anymore anyway. Nothing is stable anymore.
The whole College basketball scene is now a joke. Even High School players change teams every year. No wonder all the old coaches are quitting.  And what do people mean by the term kid? When does the age of reason begin?  14, 18, 21, 50?  Too much turbulence.

Also sad about the GWRising post. It's like when I went to my phone's Contact list and saw that 7 of my close friends passed away in the last 2 years. I wonder how many of my graduation class of 1972 are still with us? Can't believe I have been supporting the team for over 50 years. I will miss Rising insights and the insights of others that are close to the program.  Question is, is GW's program really more dysfunctional than any other program? I'm just tired of seeing all the old poster's just fading away.

Bad end to a bad season. More of the same next year? Not looking good at all. Sigh!

GW Men's Hoops » GW vs UMASS A10 Tourney Game Thread » 3/10/2022 7:48 pm

Fire the team for this performance. 

GW Men's Hoops » GW vs UMASS A10 Tourney Game Thread » 3/10/2022 7:06 pm

Well prepared. Probably didn't want to play Dayton again. Total failure in 1st. Disgusting play beginning with the pass to no one.

Noting good to say about this. Happy Sr. day for Fordham. We're happy to oblige.

GW Men's Hoops » GW vs Fordham Game Thread » 3/05/2022 4:04 pm

GW Men's Hoops » GW vs Fordham Game Thread » 3/05/2022 4:00 pm

40% foul shooting. WTF. Sad performance. Mental.

GW Men's Hoops » GW vs Fordham Game Thread » 3/05/2022 3:58 pm

6-14 from foul line. Pretty good.
