Perhaps they wanted to set a schedule that they felt would get their team a winning ooc record. Remember when the Ram head coach said they were not going to schedule HC any more because we could not give them a good level of competition (and Fordham then lost that year's game to HC)? If they were in the PL I believe they would be a positive addition and it would be great to see a NY market Jesuit team play HC on a regular basis in men's hoops league play. As it is, I don't much care whom they schedule.

I guess the Little Sisters of the Poor would not return Neubauer's persistent calls.
Seems that Fordham is just looking to accumulate wins for an invite to one of the lesser tournaments where the RPI and quality of opponents means nothing. It was the approach to last season and it achieved its objective. On the flip side, this schedule is an outright admission by the powers that be in the Bronx that they are no where near good enough for serious postseason play.
