Re: CCSU Alum Marc Rybczyk battling cancer

I was acquainted with his Mom and Dad a long time ago. I met Mark when he was a baby.
Hope he can beat this.

Re: 1.12.19 @ Mount St. Marys 4pm *FRONT ROW*

I knew Central would come back in the 2nd half but I did know if it would be enough. MSM could not maintain the rate of shooting threes as they did in the first half. All in all it was a gutty performance. Do you think the word might be out that Kohl is a good player? He saw double teams for the who...

Re: 1.12.19 @ Mount St. Marys 4pm *FRONT ROW*

I don't think there are any guaranteed wins for this team. They have been both very good and very bad. It all depends on which team shows up.

Re: 1/5@SHU

It is still between semesters and most students are not on campus. I have a friend, also a Central alum, who was going to visit his daughter in Fairfield and wanted to catch the CCSU/SHU game. He told me that he went on line tried to buy a seat and could not because the game was sold out, I said tha...

Re: 1.10.19 @ FDU 7pm *FRONT ROW*

I'm surprised to hear people were having issues with FrontRow last night. I've had my problems with it, but I never had even a buffer last night. Streamed via my Samsung Galaxy tablet on Google Chrome. i am surprised too. I watched the whole game plus 2 OT's with no interruption to the stream. i us...

Re: General (Non CCSU/NEC) Basketball Chat

He is at Lackawanna College, a Junior College in Penn. Talek is a tremendous athlete, but he was too short to be a forward at the D1 level and did not have the ball handling skills to be a #1 or the shooting skills to be a #2. Kind of caught in between. I would not be surprised if at some point some...

Re: 1.10.19 @ FDU 7pm *FRONT ROW*

I am not complaining about Front Row. I can remember the days of listening on the radio trying to hear WPOP through the static as i live on the fringe of the station's range. Yes, the video part of the broadcast is primitive compared to ESPN3. But I do like having the whole league available. It is f...

Re: 1.10.19 @ FDU 7pm *FRONT ROW*

Front Row is such a pos! I like it too! :D Kohl had a triple double and he has to be tired. Despite the fact that they almost blew it, this was a "must" win. FDU beat the preseason #1 pick, SFU, by 18 points on the road, so I think that we beat a legit contender on their court today. I am going to ...

Re: 2019 Offers

There is going to be a transfer or two. It is going to happen. That is simply the reality of D1 MBB. Hopefully, it is limited to a bench player(s) who is looking for more PT and not one of the rotation players looking to move up. Bute can be replaced, Kohl is another story, but his graduation is goi...

Re: 2019 Offers

In this case DM is addressing a major problem at PG. He has recruited an incoming Fr in Tennyson who signed before his HS Senior year, so I think that they must be high on this kid, but relying on an incoming Fr to be the QB of the team has its risks. A JUCO transfer should be ready to step right in...

Well now we know that there are at least two teams in the NEC that are definitely better than us.

We turned him into a DB and redshirted him this year.
Okay, I can see the Red Shirt, but why turn him into a DB?

Re: 1.3.19 Wagner @ CCSU

Kohl out for concussion protocol. We are snake bitten. Did anyone notice that Central was dominant in the paint? Here we have been complaining for the Howie years that we didn't have enough size/weight/big athletes and were relying on guard play. Now we have good bigs, and no point guards. The lack ...
