This could have been said about St. John’s 20 plus years ago.




Exactly, which is why Mahoney was able to recruit Felipe & Zendon.


Zendon was one of the best recruiting jobs in the history of this school, because he was all Syracuse, all the time. I was truly shocked we pulled that off.

From what I remember -- and granted, memories are getting a little fuzzier each day -- Zendon's dad played a major role in his opting for us over Syracuse.

Wanting a religious environment may have played a part, although I think Zendon was a seventh day adventist and not Catholic. Plus, anyone named George Hamilton surely knows that Syracuse weather is bad for tanning.

Kind of. There will likely be two games in Maui considered tougher even though they wrap them all together.

Yeah...that's why he had to travel to a CA school for his 10th or 11th attempt at meeting minimum SAT score, because dad was not able to take him locally for testing due to chuch/religion conflict .

Others claim much different reasons for flying across country to take test at this specific location.

ATTENTION:

Major updates were made to the servers / software hosting redmen.com. There was also one significant change to the website this week to address keeping up with current standards and practices.

It has now become standard practice for all websites to be served as https (as opposed to the original http).


A couple of years ago I enabled https on the site as optional but as of today, the site is forcing https. Any link coming into the site should be automatically converted on the fly and you should not have to do anything on your end.

However if you do notice recent problems, please contact me directly via email: webmaster@redmen.com or via private message on the site.


Also if you have forgotten your username and/or password here are two links to address that (the links only work if you are not currently logged in):
