Thursday News:

Find of the week goes to Brian Earl for this scouting report his father gave him of Rutgers' attempts to prepare for Bill Bradley and the rest of the 1964-1965 Princeton Tigers. Of course, Bradley scored 35 points in this game and the orange and black led by 27 at halftime. So much for scouting reports!

The Padres' season concluded last night with a 7-6 win at Milwaukee. For the year Will Venable hit .264 in 148 games (equalling his career high) with 26 doubles, eight triples, nine home runs and 24 stolen bases. His strikeout/game ratio also dropped for the third straight season.

This is an interesting piece on recruitment battles between Georgetown and Maryland.

Mercer County Community College has posted their schedule for the upcoming season.

A Harvard basketball verbal commit will play elsewhere citing financial concerns.

Sharp eyed observers will have spotted the real tiger skin hanging on the wall above the Dillon Gym balcony in the 1965 Princeton-Penn game program.

Not unlike the short-lived Pete Carril banners that appeared following the naming ceremony for Carril Court in Jadwin, the tiger skin also disappeared from Dillon around the turn of this century.

One suspects that the Politically Correct Legions effected its removal when the walls were being repainted, removed forever to that same massive storage warehouse seen at the conclusion of one of the Indiana Jones films.

The report on Noah Allen brought back some memories of recruiting efforts in my area (northeast PA) conducted by Pete Carril involving the sons of good friends of mine. Both men made enough money to disqualfy their sons for financial aid, but neither could afford to turn down full rides. One of the kids ended up at Holy Cross (his father's alma mater) and the other joined Pete's former assistant, Tony Relvas, in his ill-fated effort to spark the basketball fortunes of Colgate. Pete told both men he understood completely and wished the kids well. These stories, and the dozens of similar ones, are testaments to the greatness of Carril, achieved in a recruiting environment most D1coaches need not endure. It may explain why many young Ivy coaches move on.
