I caught yesterday's Lehigh/Lafayette game on tv. The lack of scholarships was clearly evident in the talent level of the two teams on the court. It's really depressing to see the program struggling to compete like this for those of us who were in school back when I was when we were a Patriot League power.
I've heard rumblings of scholarships possible coming to Easton. What's the latest word on this?
i don't know but i know our fran feels that it's a ridiculous situation. he's spoken out about this repeated since he's friends with your fran. hopefully something can be worked out to level the playing field.
Fran was very cautious when asked about scholarships after the Bucknell game. I had heard he had sort of gone public on radio or TV somewhere (heard radio and Comcast pre-Penn game) about needing scholarships, so I asked him about them.
His response was basically that he didn't know if scholarships would make a difference because he has never had scholarships. Also said he just needs to be a better coach, which I think most would agree is probably not the problem in Easton.
