News and Notes: Tuesday Edition

Below, some news and notes for Tuesday...
  • A reminder, Cornell's Red-White Game, the annual open-to-the-public intersquad scrimmage is scheduled for October 22 at Newman Arena. The scrimmage tips off at approximately 4 pm following the home football game against Brown. The Red-White Game also coincides with the basketball program's Alumni Weekend where former players are invited to return back to Cornell. There is no expected online broadcast for the Red-White Game, but those plans could change.
  • Per PrimerHora.com, while Jeff Aubry ('99) was selected for inclusion on the Puerto Rico national team, he has opted not to participate in the Pan Am Games and will instead join the team in early 2012 in its preparation for Olympic qualifying. Aubry will miss the Pan Am Games due to his renewed contract with his professional club, the Veracruz Rojos of the Mexican premier league.
  • Former Cornell assistant coach, Jay Larranaga, now the head coach of the Erie Bay Hawks in the NBA D-League is quoted in Deadspin about his team's open tryouts.

CornellBigRed.com announced earlier this afternoon that "Shaky Bear" is back on the website.

I'm afraid that's not true. "Shaky Bear" has been replaced by "Vibrator Bear." Good Lord, the poor guy has had his vibrating frequency increased by about 100% from that of his old self.

He makes me dizzy now.
