News and Notes: Saturday Edition

Below, some news and notes for Saturday...
  • The NFL's website features Cornell football alum, Bryan Walters and references Cornell's run in the NCAA Tournament, stating, "The Big Red, [is] best known athletically for its run to the Elite Eight this March."
  • Jon Jaques ('10) previews with Slam Online the preseason tournaments and makes several references to his alma mater. On Kentucky, Jaques writes, "You ... can’t argue with a team that was able to beat Cornell in the Sweet 16 (had to toss that in there)." On Boston College, "OK, so I’m excited to watch the Old Spice Classic because my nearly entire Cornell coaching staff has moved to Chestnut Hill. But it’s also because I know what these coaches are capable of. This year might be a rough transition with coaches getting used to players and vice versa, but Coach Donahue’s offense is spectator- and player-friendly (though it takes a while to master)." And on Temple, "Is it possible that I like the Orlando field so much because each team Cornell beat in the Tournament last March are participating?"
  • is counting down the top 100 mid major programs of the last six years.
