Re: Jake Watch

Also noticed Jake traded in his CCSU #9 jersey for Bengals #7 - that Boomer Esiason's former jersey number!

Last Bengals player to wear #9 was Carson Palmer. (2003-2010)

Stepping into some big shoes in Cincinnati.

Re: Hughley article in Recorder

I've also heard from reliable sources that there is more to the story as written ... and that probably doesn't make Joe look totally innocent in the matter. I'm sure some people would like more info to be made public, but for a variety of reasons, I doubt that happens. That being said, I stand by my...

Re: Hughley article in Recorder

Hilltoper - you are correct, we didn't get a response from Central. I also thought Joe was honest, that he reacted harshly from the incident on the sidelines, but this was the culmination of other Incidents. But considering their (lack of) response to the DM incident, the drama professors, and the p...

Re: Hughley article in Recorder

P.S.

Kudos for that article. Great writing - telling a complete story and getting great quotes. More coverage like this from the Recorder would be great. Nice to see the student newspaper stepping up and filling a void in the lack of media coverage.

Good luck Patrick on your next endeavor.

Re: Hughley article in Recorder

Joe is a classy guy. He was a fan favorite and I respect him even more for how he handled this situation. In life, sometimes things just happen and it isn’t fair. He deserves better from his teammates, his coaches, and the Administration. RR - you are 100% correct. Too many people still employed at ...

Re: Men's Basketball Announces Addition of Six for 2019-20

. What I worry about is none of them, not one, had any other d1 offers. Zero, zlich, nada, the big goose egg, which begs the question, why??? Especially Baker who was described as the second best shooter in IL???? Not true. I haven't done the research on them all, but Baker definitely had some othe...

Re: 2019-20 non-conference schedule

Nice to hear we're back in another exempt tourney! Schedule is shaping up nicely. News sources confirm that Vermont is playing at Virginia & St. John's, so it looks likely that Central will get a game at UMass to go along with game at Virginia reported by Nelson Castillo.

Re: Whos Left???? Early March 2019

I saw a tweet this kid turned down UAB for CCSU. Very impressive signing. Still have concerns at PG and there will be more new faces than old ones, so I worry about team chemistry and how long it will take for them to gel as a unit. As pessimistic as I am, there is literally no where for this progr...
