Lafayette obviously has the MBB program that the college and many of its fans are willing to accept, so who am I to disagree?
We will always remember the great O'Hanlon teams of the late 1990s that got Lafayette back to the postseason. That was almost two decades ago.
Since then there has been a general decline to the D2 level and there hasn't been a good recruiting class in seven years.
I still look upon the complacency with disbelief. The routine blowouts in league play and the lack of athleticism on the court would not be acceptable anywhere else.
Perhaps most disappointing was that even with a player like Nick Lindner giving his all every day, on and off the court, and a battler like Matt Klinewski, the rest of the team didn't show much fight or heart. Two guys set great examples and nobody else followed. The team only has one other player who might make a difference.
So I wish the MBB team and fans well, but I'm done attending and watching, and caring and posting about it. Enough.

I'm too upset that FOH (and Bruce) have let this program decline to this extent. So, let me get this straight...WE GO BUT THEY STAY? I'll go happily, but they're going with me.

Everyone has their favorite sport but there is failure across the board. Baseball is failing miserably despite spending more than any other league member, we all know about football ( but it seems to be getting addressed), women's lacrosse seems to be doing well, we'll see once we get into league games, FH was ranked in the top ten in the country five years ago and now it can't make the league playoffs,  and I could go on. The failures are across the board, so where does it point!!??
Perhaps a clue to where we are is the front of the Lafayette touting our nationally ranked ultimate frisbee team?? The fault is as much in Markle as it is in KSC.
