Figini looked considerably bigger in the photo you posted earlier in the week. He clearly gained weight between this photo & that one. Great job keep it up.

Ughh. Harvard is going to be an Ivy dynasty. Complain all you want about Amaker, but he's getting players no one else in the Ivy's can get.

Then, we might chat about a dynasty.
