Back to Bucknell?
More Honors for Kennedy
Andrew Kennedy has been named to yet another
All America team.
The discussion going on in the comments section about Fordham deserves a better airing here in the main section.
Fordham’s decision to go with athletic scholarships for football certainly hasn’t paid off yet, but will it ever lead the Rams into national prominence like Notre Dame or Boston College?
With Fordham’s current football facilities, that hardly seems possible. But there is a little hinting here and there that the Rams would someday like to reclaim Yankee Stadium as its unofficial home for football if the program truly does take a few steps up.
Fordham actually has a beautiful campus and a good academic reputation, but few people outside of New York really even know about it.
Hell, lots of people in the New York area don’t know much about the school if anything.
And maybe that’s the point.
Win or lose, Fordham would enter the discussion at least in the New York area if the local news and sports media simply mentioned the school’s name more often.
There’s no faster track to getting mentioned on the evening news or ESPN than playing a sporting event, especially if it’s against a school like Notre Dame or Boston College.
I like the idea of bringing Bucknell back to the schedule sometime soon. It seems the Lions stopped playing the Bison as soon as they stopped becoming a very competitive team. That’s just our luck!
And what about some schools like Maine, (only 8 hours away… not too bad), and the very nearby Wagner?
