This was intended to be totally in jest. You might think that would be obvious but it upset at least one of you to have him reference it three times in a totally different thread. I had no aim to upset anyone (even the Robot) and if I did so, I apologize.
The B9 Robot resided in the Science Fiction Museum in Seattle. B9 was in an exhibit with Robbie the Robot when I last visited the museum, in 2010, which is next to the Space Needle. The facility is now known as the Museum of Pop Culture.
The thread took a brief turn with the mention of Will Robinson. For fans of Lost in Space, once the name is mentioned, it is a very small leap to mention the most common line that always follows, that was said by the B9 Robot. .....Danger Will Robinson.😀
Since a Holy Cross Alum was in an ongoing role in the show, it was natural to go slightly down that rabbit hole. Hope some people saw the linkage. Maybe they now know of Mark Goddard. There are more serious issues in the world to get torque about. 🥴😂
I got blank stares from Sgt Schultz's "I know nothing, nothing..." like 10 or so years ago from students in class.....sadly, there are countless TV catch phrases from the 20th C that are nearly completely lost to many people today.
NCAA: Only 54% of FBS players who entered portal enrolled at new school 4:59 PM ET Tom VanHaaren ESPN Staff Writer Facebook Twitter Facebook Messenger Pinterest Email print In a move to provide more transparency with regard to the transfer portal, the NCAA released statistics and information for the years 2020 and 2021 that shows only 54% of FBS players who entered the portal enrolled at a new school.
During the two-year period shown in the infographics provided by the NCAA, 5% of student-athletes who entered the portal withdrew their name, while 41% remained active in the transfer portal. The data shows an increase of more than 950 FBS players entering to the portal from August 2019-July 2020 (1,583) to August 2020-July 2021 (2,539). The NCAA has seen the most active months coming in December and January, with 38% of the 2021 entrants coming in those two months.
The transfer portal has become more popular since the NCAA has allowed student-athletes a one-time transfer without penalty, which is backed up by the numbers on the NCAA site.
In 2020, there were 587 undergrad students who entered the portal and enrolled at a new school, whereas there were 950 in 2021. That sharp increase has continued to rise in the 2021-2022 year, and the numbers are expected to be even higher than the two previous years.
In the research the NCAA conducted, it shows that only 59% of scholarship FBS football players who entered their name in the transfer portal transferred to another school and received a scholarship at the next destination. Among those scholarship players who entered the portal, 33% (834) still remain active and 8% transferred without athletic aid.
FBS football saw the most student-athletes enter the transfer portal (2,538) of any sport, but men's basketball had the highest percentage of student-athletes in the portal with 31% (1,692) of its athletes entering in the year 2021. FBS saw 16% of its athletes enter the portal, while women's basketball had 22% (1,134) enter during the 12-month period.
The NCAA analyzed data for all of the sports under its jurisdiction and found that only 30% (9,101) of Division I athletes who entered the portal across all sports transferred and received athletic aid at their new school, and 47% (14,293) of all entrants remain active.
Would it be better than the current system if D1 football and basketball had a 10-day open dialogue period every year where any coach could reach out to any player and vice versa. At the end of the 10 days, players can enter the portal which will be open for the next 10 days. That’s it. No more movement after that. 20 days of misery instead of months. And players have a pretty good idea if they’ll have a home when they enter the portal.
I’ve looked everywhere. Looks like Kentwood is state of WA. Van might not be full first name. Very difficult to find anything on this.
Could you re-post the Instagram link for Hurley? I tried looking for him on Instagram and couldn't find a matching name. There is a Van(der) Hurley, but he has two degrees from the University of Georgia.

Something doesn't smell right here.
Can't find anything on this kid on the interwebs.
His Instagram also reported an offer from Fordham yesterday.
These high school kids are following hundreds and have hundreds of followers (he has three followers). When an offer is announced, there are a slew of congratulatory comments. No comments on either offer post for HC and Fordham.
