Beyond a point that's well below what Coach Davis is already earning, additional money's effect on happiness diminishes sharply.

. . . Particularly if you factor in the cost of living in Lewisburg. To compare a Bucknell salary to one in the major metro areas, you have to double it. Even more in some places. And Lewisburg is a great place to raise kids. Just depends on what you are looking for.

BRW - I didn't say anything

The overarching point that is at issue will ultimately be the challenge,not the money

Don't let the message board's automatic lead-ins that say "in response to Old Bison" lead you to think that a post is actually in response to Old Bison.

The board just puts in the name of whichever poster was in the previous post.

this

he left his alma mater for the challenge of coaching in d1. at some point, with the right opportunity, the chance to compete in a higher level league has the same appeal to most coaches as it does to players.

Please, let's not kid ourselves. If a coach can make a lateral move and make 2x or more $$$, unless there is some type of overriding factor such as alma mater, familial ties, great living conditions, etc., that coach will probably apologize, get some tears in his eyes, say that he never wanted to leave, and go for the $$$. If I have to be honest, I would probably do the same thing.

It's tough to compete against Penn for an academically-oriented player. Bucknell's program is better than Penn's now but playing in the Palestra is really appealing. I'm certainly not dismissing Delaware but I'd be very happy if Andrew chooses Bucknell over Penn.

My guess is Penn, he as much as said so in that interview.

New offer to Chimezie Offurum, a 6-6 SF from D.C. (Georgetown Prep). He has offers from Maryland, Indiana, Rutgers, VA Tech, URI, St. Joes, Hofstra, Towson, UAB, Tulsa, Canisius, and ODU. Tough competition - although it should be noted that the offers from the power conference teams are all about a year old. Offurum last fall was ranked #13 of the players in the MD, DC, Northern VA area by one site.



Looks like we missed Offurum's official to Bucknell. Also visited GW and UMass which is good company to be in

sometimes you have to just throw it up to the heavens and keep your fingers crossed really hard. this kid looks super and he could really impact an already strong program. Everybody say your prayers

Offurum appears to be athletic with inside moves, 3 point range, and good ball skills. If he values a great education at a very solid program, Bucknell appears to be his best option. Anytime that somebody makes an official visit is a good indication that they are very interested.

BTW, good video:

This is the only video I saw

http://verbalcommits.com/players/chimezie-offu rum

and I agree he shows a really varied combination of skills combined with physical gifts. His type of game would compliment Bucknell's existing and entering personnel really well. Coming from a school like Georgetown Prep implies he already has his head on straight. It's quite a different mix of potential schools if the info above is correct. Bucknell sticks out like a sore thumb (private,small-town,perso nal,highly prestigious and growing more so under Bravman's leadership)vs 3 A10's and one C-USA. Throw ODU out cause I can't believe he'd play in that conference (it's a mess)and it's a commuter school. So that leaves two State schools and GW which I believe, and I could be wrong as I don't know much about the school...would have a large commuter element as well. So when you group them together they all constitute to some degree the antithesis of Bucknell (larger, impersonal, city, private/state, less cache and less of a resume virtue post-graduation). This is what makes recruiting so tough. Throwing out the obvious bias of wanting him to attend BU, with age and experience regardless of the affiliation it appears straightforward. But you can't live someone's life for him and you can't transplant that knowledge and experience to him. As an intelligent kid he sees things we may miss or we may prioritize differently. Hell, from a basketball standpoint Bucknell plays the same highly quality schedule on a macro basis. I hope he spent some time with Bruce on campus because coming from McDonough its the same kind of transition and from my interactions with Bruce he seems really settled and happy and understands Bucknell's where he get's his bread buttered.
