A year without Marvin.

Today marks a year since Marvin Bressler's passing. On this anniversary I keep coming back to a quote from Rabbi Jim Diamond about Professor Bressler:

"He was a skeptic in the best sense of the term. He was not an irreverent skeptic. He was not a cynical skeptic. He was a profound and responsible skeptic."

What would Marvin would have had to say about last season, had he been here to experience it?

I think he would have gotten a big kick out of it all.

Maddox joins Mason Rocca '00 (Italy), Judson Wallace '05 (Spain) and Konrad Wysocki '04 (Poland) as former Tigers playing professionally overseas.

A conversation with Sydney Johnson.

Sydney Johnson is a man of his word.

Back in April, when the Fairfield basketball coach left Princeton after four seasons, he privately promised me that a time would eventually come where he would be willing to field my queries about his departure.

Yesterday at a coffee shop in Mercer County, Johnson and I met up to talk.

Thinking of the many email exhanges, site comments and off-Internet conversations I had with subscribers since Johnson joined the Stags, I tried to get answers to the questions you have asked me.

The audio from our 20:00+ conversation can be found after the jump.
