Bravo! my uncle Maxwell Parnes '12 is depicted in the '11-'12 team picture. He is one of the two guys with a "C" on his shirt seated second from the left. Family lore was replete with his prowess. After graduation he may have played for St. Johns under the alias of McParnes. He also played basketball on roller skates in Coney Island, a major resort back then, before embarking on a career as a Federal Prosecutor. He was a staunch Cornellian until his death in 1961.
Maxwell was an All EIBL selection in 1912 for "his strong defensive skills."
Who is #31 in the 1995-1996 team photo? Is it Dave Pendleton? He was a fiend of mine in college but I thought he dropped off of the team well before season started.
Anyone notice how dudes back in the late 80's and early 90's looked more like grown ass men while teams from the late 2000's look like kids? The 80's dudes are hairy and have grown men muscles while these new guys are baby faced and scrawny. I'm seriously wondering what happened/shifted between the 80's and now where kids still look like kids instead of grown men. Change in diet? Lifestyle?
Wow, going back a while. If memory serves correctly, Pendleton transferred from Oregon State and was expected to play in the 1995-1996 season. He was one of several transfers that year that did not suit-up for Scott Thompson. Not certain if No. 31 is Pendleton, but it could be.
No, Pendleton was a recruit. The OSU transfer was Brandon Peterson (i think that was his last name). They are both west coast big men. Pendleton quit the team before the first game in the 1995-96 season (but practiced with the team most of the fall, as evidenced by his inclusion in the team picture).
and #31 in 95-96 is Pendleton. I don't think Peterson from OSU made it into any team pictures.
Thanks for all the replies. Pendleton was on the same floor as I was when we were freshmen, and we later shared a house together. He told me back then that he was on the team but had quit before the season, so I didn't expect to see him in a photo on this blog!
