Alright Pat, I might be stubborn, but I also like to think I have integrity.

I'm not sure Cain is a first teammer, but he's certainly better than I thought he was and deserves to be on one of the All-American teams this spring.  That was a much, much better call than I gave you credit for.




(Although I think I was right about the team, overall.)

Gotta give credit where credit is due. Congratulations to Ryan Cain who clearly can play basketball but also is a Big Brother to a kid in need. You are representing Division III athletics well Ryan. Good luck in the future.

A well deserved congratulations to Steve Brennan for being named NEWMAC Coach of the Year, the fifth time in his 12 seasons that he has earned either the designation from either the NEWMAC or its predecessor, the CAC. As a Babson alum and former basketball captain, extremely pleasing to see such a quality individual contribute not just his expertise, competitiveness, and passion to a fine athletic program, but also to the broader Babson community as a whole.

I speak for many fellow alums with pride to see the value of our degrees enhanced by having such a class act at them helm of the hoops program. The best lessons anyone can learn from athletics at any level are how to compete for things in life and carry yourself with class, Brennan is a terrific example of both.


With exception of a few ridiculous posts, very much enjoy reading the dialogue on the board, pretty cool insights and opinions. Wish it was in place in mid 1990's!

Wish all of the good players in this league had been nominated for All-Region.

Pat,

Who wasnt nominated? (and specifically, was MIT's Bartolotta nominated, because I was honestly surprised not to see him on the list at least on the third team)

Players are nominated by the SID from the school, so it might be more specific to ask which schools failed to submit nominations.

I understand that, but I think that Bartolotta was the only one with a real shot from MIT.

Right, but asking Pat which players weren't nominated is kind of like asking someone which Americans aren't running for President.  It's hard to know exactly how to answer that.

That is why I specified a player.  A simple yes/no he was/wasnt nominated would probably suffice.

No nominations from MIT.

That actually drew a four-letter word  from someone on our staff, someone who isn't known for such. But we can't hand-hold schools. No way to make sure every worthy player is nominated.

Anyone know if the NEWMAC is actually going to vote on an eighth member this summer?
