Tiger alumni, and all fans, look forward to the administration of new University president Chris Eisgruber, '83. I am sure many followers of this site are acquainted with him. Can anyone share any insights regarding his policy initiatives for the Department of Athletics? Specifically, is he a basketball fan? We are all aware that the Admissions Office has a very direct influence on the quality of sports programs. I wonder if we might see some lower tier AI recruits on the court under the new administration?

I have no problem with letting the players start to practice sooner. Not a big fan of shortening the shot clock, which will tend to lower offensive points per possession and give less reward to teams that can maintain their focus throughout a possession.

I'd like to see a rule that a team in the bonus can opt to take the ball out of bounds instead of shooting fouls (on a non-shooting foul). That might end some of those interminable end-of-game hackathons and would introduce some interesting strategy for coaches.

One reads and hears how Harvard's FOBB apparently helpsto fund Amaker's salary/benifits. Is there any truth to this? Do we do anything similar to suport our coacing staff?

The nature of the boosterism at Harvard, if not the extent, is well documented. Four staff writers at The Crimson published a rough history of the Amaker era on March 7, 2012, entitled "The Rise of Harvard Basketball." It's easy to find.
