considering you could run all the video off remote cameras I dont think High angles are really an issue if you use the right equipment,

Nevermind that, can we talk about the assault on the senses every venue seems to want? Even the modest & thin video scoreboard I can see in the photo of Appleton is entirely too many blazingly bright photons to completely ruin the setting.

And don’t get me started on the apparent need to have thumping DJs blasting tweeter-tearing music in (nearly) every arena at every stoppage. If ADs want to trim budgets, start by firing the DJs.

At the Cornell-Penn football game, there was a large home band, a larger visiting band, and a half-broken speaker. Guess which of the three was allowed to play most of the time?

Some time ago some Harvard MBA figured out if you pummel people they but more shit. Same reason every baseball stadium ruins the experience with piped in garbage music and noise.

Nobody ever went broke racing to the bottom.

Remote cameras at center ice could be placed only a couple feet higher (than they are now a couple feet higher than the upper press table) before you run into the flags. But a camera high-ish up in the corner, and a second placed diagonally across at the other end, they'd capture better angles, including puck battles in the corners. Broadcasts from Lynah also doesn't provide access to the cameras mounted directly over the goals.

This photo is from Section M, center ice, two-thirds of the way up; the flags obscure more when you get to the level of the upper press box. Soft attendance? Early in the Minnesota Duluth game.

I'm not a huge fan of the music during play stoppages and of the Tokyo-by-Night graphics on the video scoreboard. But I'm old. If it brings younger fans and keeps them coming, well, more power to them.

I'm not convinced it appeals to younger fans either. It's just stupidity.

I guess you can argue that stupidity will appeal to more people. But I imagine the decisions at the Consulting Firm go like this:

1. How do I know what the common man likes?
2. I am not common.
3. I hate this.
4. Therefore, the common man must like this.

But I don't know of anyone who wants garbage noises smashed into them at 120 dB. The keeeds' music is music, it isn't crap. And playing little out take blurbs of songs people like isn't music, it's annoying and pandering.

The reduction of people to Homo Derpus Commercia is not for their benefit. It's lab rats being given electroshock.

RIT has a remote camera at center ice that follows the play to either end. some great angles off that one.

Insane subscription fees for what does not look like an interesting set of offerings behind the paywall and no single-event option. And it's not like the event was making money from ticket sales. The photo attached to the game recap may be the most swagless event photo I've ever seen. The action shot is a free throw.

They are playing at D2 Flagler College in St. Augustine. A daughter of a good friend and law partner of mine played soccer there. Gorgeous campus, crappy gym. But at least a gym.

74-61 win. Not worried about 9 point runs late in games that never let them close to within single digits. As opposed, say, to the second half at Fordham where it got frighteningly close.

First, I wanted to say Wolverines!
Second, sure they weren't going to blow a 22 point lead in the last four minutes, but I want see the regulars (Manon, Gray, Williams) do a better job of closing out games.

EDIT: But winning by 13 over a team KenPom had us beating by 3 is good.

Cornell could make it unbeaten through December 5. Then Syracuse. The losing streak is 42. Last 2 wins over the Orange were the years where protesting ROTC and Vietnam was a major sport. Even in 2009-2010, out Sweet Sixteen year, we lost by 15 to the Orange. Also: This is an at-Syracuse series now. It was home-and-home through 1981.

we lost to George Mason last week

we (101) are currently rated higher than syracuse (118) on kenpom but that has to be an artifact of their three wins over bad teams and a loss to tennessee (and another probably coming against gonzaga tonight). it's not like we've played a killer schedule either, though, so idk. maybe because we haven't played a home game yet (D3 game aside) and they have three road wins and a neutral site loss. i still don't think we're the favorite lol.

Fine start to the game, just need a little more shooting luck. One thing I am getting pretty frustrated about though is our inability to get the ball to cutters. It seems like Ragland and Hansen cannot stop trying to find these passes but our success rate on them is painfully low, whether it be because of a bad pass or the cutter being unable to reel in the ball.

It will be a test to see how Cornell plays with teams in the ivy. As bad as SU is right now they still had better athletes at every spot on the floor. The fact that are such a dumb team helps teams like Cornell stay in the game.

Cornell played very well vs. Syracuse last evening. We just could not sink the three pointers when we needed them. However I would not call Syracuse a "dumb team" as they are a great Upstate NY rival. I would love to see Brian Earl pull out the win at the Dome sometime and I think we could have won with a few key three pointers. Go Big Red!!!

I think he meant it literally, they play dumb. And they do, I was amazed at just how badly they seemed to put all of the great elements together. Even when Mintz was sitting, the way they threw the ball around the perimeter was amazing -- so much cleaner, sharper, faster than we. And it seemed like every time they got a clear 3 they sunk it.

But they just did dumb things all night, including that stretch where they handed us 9 defensive fouls in the first couple minutes of the second half and got half their team into deep foul trouble. That almost sunk them. With their skill level and how hot they were last night we should not have been within 20 for most of the night, and yet we pulled to within one possession before we remembered we were an Ivy League team.

I don't know whether that's bad coaching or what.

The Girls put up a pretty good fight against a decent SU team last night.. Led most of the game until the full court pressure broke them down.

Cornell has been searching for that 7 footer since Jeff Foote graduated.

Maybe they could play in Barton Hall. Players just get up from the exam tables and walk over to the court.

I'm sure finals are done by this point. Otherwise, it's a great suggestion.

Nice bounce back. These games are such rollercoasters. They shoot so much that they have multiple hot and cold runs in The same half.

RMU 44.4% on 3-pointers, and rebounds abounded. Seemed like it was higher than that, and I think it was for a while. Remarkable that the Big Red found themselves down by only five at the half, the way the momentum felt in the first half. RMU was absolutely abysmal from the line, and it cost them badly.

A small, but vocal, Cornell contingent I'm pleased to report.

Good to see Nazir get back in the flow of today’s game. I continue to be impressed with Okereke—how was this guy a walk on? And Beccles continues to improve and get more quality PT.

The team has hardly played at home, and finally gets back to Newman next week in what shapes up to be an interesting game against Colgate. The Raiders have been up-and-down, and come off a bad loss yesterday at Iona. If we play up to our capabilities it’s a game we should win.

I had noticed this as well and really hopes it pays off. Despite the wins we've racked up over the past few years in the regular season, I've always had the feeling that in tight, close games we would just wilt a bit. Any road W is a good W in college bball, and to be 9-2 with only 2 home games so far is hopefully character building for when we're in those tight ILT games.

RMU was 11-for-23 from the foul line, while Cornell was 20-for-22. In a five-point game, that was the difference.

Princeton is running away with the Ivies on Kenpom (48) and are maybe an at-large candidate if they are a one-loss team heading into the ILT and get get upset. Cornell is creeping up on Yale for second (both in the 110s) in the conference with Harvard in 4th (~150). If this keeps up, great news. I like getting to the ILT. Just need a chance.

Was about to correct you because Wikipedia says it's in Providence, but you're right. It was slated for Brown, but moved to Columbia in February.

Cornell's entire history in basketball in the era of the formalized Ivy League play with a few exceptions and the notable 2010 sweet sixteen run has been to be happy with what we've got. But, okay, it's better than being "voted to finish eighth in the league" as has been the lot of football the past decade.

One of the exceptions, during the Bill Bradley era, we were the only Ivy team to beat Princeton. Barton Hall was packed and Blaine Aston made a jump shot to win it.

Also the era when Cornell with Black players beat Kentucky at Kentucky. Legend has it that the Wildcats' coach, Adolph Rupp, realized the future of basketball was not White-only. We won 92-77 (December 1968) and it helped Rupp let the state of Kentucky see the handwriting on the wall. That and Kentucky six months earlier losing the NCAA championship to UTEP (now Texas Western) with all-Black starters.

UTEP now, TW then. Fascinating campus in Bhutanese style..
I'm sorry, what?

Holy fuck:


UTEP's campus is known for its striking architecture, inspired by the Himalayan mountain-top fortresses of the Kingdom of Bhutan. Nearly all of the buildings on campus incorporate Bhutanese architectural elements—massive sloping walls, high inset windows, overhanging roofs, and darks bands of brick inset with mosaic-tiled mandalas. The buildings, like fortresses rise out of the mountain landscape. The earthly colors accented with deep red brick and green and dark brown trim seem to blend into the terrain, yet they do not evoke the typical southwestern motif. At first brush, it might seem strange to find Bhutanese architecture sprawling across a university campus in western Texas, but the style has been a part of the campus design since 1917.

Bhutan’s remoteness and self-imposed isolation kept it off of the beaten tracks of most tourists and adventurers until the late 20th century. However, those involved with the administration of British India did visit the kingdom on official business. John Claude White, a British political officer in India, took with him on one of his visits a photographic studio complete with large-format cameras and glass photographic plates carried on the backs of pack animals. The tale of his trip along with the photographs made it into the pages of the National Geographic Magazine’s April 1914 issue. Among the many images were those of the countries unique architecture.

One of the 330,000 readers to the National Geographic Magazine in 1914 was the wife of the dean of the School of Mines, Kathleen Worrell. A travel writer herself, Kathleen was devoted reader of the flagship travelogue. Following the devastating Fort Bliss fire that destroyed the School of Mines’ original main building, Kathleen, the legend goes, convinced her husband to adopt the Bhutanese style in the designs for the replacement buildings that were planned for the new Franklin Mountain site. Her husband, Dean Steve Worrell agreed and promptly convinced the faculty of the idea. So enamored were they that Worrell and the faculty harshly rebuffed an attempt by the noted architectural firm of Trost & Trost to adopt their non-Bhutanese inspired design submissions.

In the late 1960s, Dale Walker, a UTEP faculty member wrote a letter that he sent to the remote and isolated Kingdom of Bhutan, seeking comments on UTEP’s Bhutanese-inspired architectural motif. Walker received a response from a member of the Bhutanese royal family who found it “thrilling and deeply moving” that a university in far-off America would erect buildings modeled on her native Bhutan. Thus began an official relationship between UTEP and the Kingdom of Bhutan, fifty years after the Worrells adopted Bhutan.

I did not expect that in Derpistan. Huh.

A buddy of mine grew up in El Paso and went to UTEP, so I mentioned to him this bit about the Bhutanese architecture. Here's what he told me:
"Yes. We even have our own Buddhist temple. Back around 2014 the Bhutanese government built a small temple for an exposition on the east coast (DC?). After it was over they gave the temple to UTEP, disassembled it and moved it to the campus. Given that UTEP started out as the Texas School of Mines, there’s a couple of mine shafts on the campus. If we’re lucky the current governor won’t find out there’s a pagan temple located on a state university."
