Isn't there a marketing major at URI? Why isn't that program tied into the athletic program to provide real world experience? Or is it?

Re: Bill Koch taking Rhody questions tonight....

Totally agree with this. I think if people are all of a sudden expecting sell outs this season they are going to be pretty disappointed. It will take years of sustained success before we get to that point. This is definitely true. What's important this year is the trend line. Sounds like a 15% incr...

Re: What should URI MBB do with last Scholarship for 2018 Class?

There is no rush so hold out for best player of any kind (freshman/juco/5th year senior). Best case I believe is 5th year senior big man to provide some experience and possible leadership to next years young group. Then they can have that scholarship again the year after to get a real good 4 year k...

Re: What should URI MBB do with last Scholarship for 2018 Class?

Think he is referring to both above, I wouldn't expect either to log many minutes this year. Tertsea is a redshirt frosh and showing improvements from reports and you can't teach his size. Lysard, certain fans like but can he crack through into the rotation is a huge question mark.
