Oh, where to begin! We’ve been through this before. I am a proud alum of Cornell University, but intercollegiate athletics is not necessarily where we’ve made our reputation. No offense to our lacrosse, hockey or polo programs which are all traditionally stellar. However, it was not too long ago that our hoops squad had a [...]
My alma mater cracked the top 25 today…in BASKETBALL. You have no idea how absurd a concept this is. Yes, our quaint, little hockey and lacrosse-competent institution (also apparently quite adept at polo) has managed to compose a not-too-shabby basketball squad over the past few years.

I join, uhh…. myself, in the legion of surprised NCAA Tournament prognosticators after Stanford’s domination of the Cornell men’s cagers yesterday. The boys from Ithaca were a little more Telemachus than Odysseus [...]
Large man Jeff Foote will hold the fort against Stanford’s twin towers Okay I may have officially lost it, I’m convinced that Cornell will pull an opening round upset over Stanford in Anaheim on Thursday. I don’t know if the fact that the program hasn’t been to the NCAA tournament since 1988 has altered my [...]
We’ve discussed this possibility here before. No less mind-boggling now that it’s happening. Lunardi is projecting the Big Red to be a #13 seed. I can’t believe I just wrote that sentence.
Few things in sports surprise me nowadays. So, you can imagine it would take an event of nearly monumental proportions to catch our attention. That “something” happened while we were reading up on our beloved Cornell Big Red earlier this week. ITHACA, N.Y. — The sophomore tandem of Louis Dale and Ryan Wittman combined for [...]
