    So you're saying BC really is America's team?

    I am a sad panda. This level of stupid thread numbers isn't supposed to be reached until March. It's only January.

    Why, God, why?
    Keep an open mind. Just don't be so open-minded that your brain falls out.

    Now I'm confused... I was informed by some very wise men draped in maroon and gold that all UND players are 27 year old Canadians. But now you're telling me only 12 are?!?
    tUMD is Jan Brady per Brenthoven. Whew.... thanks for clearing THAT up.

    And one of Yale's players is from California. That's not in the US either.

    BC has a player from Arizona but at least they have borders unlike California. In two years BC may have 2 Canadians as McLeod is only a Freshman and Matheson will be coming in then. https://www.thonline.com/article.cfm?id=309727

    Here is another interesting stat.

    The number of ineligible players that are currently playing:
    Yale* 1
    Union 0
    BC 0
    BU 0
    North Dakota 0
    Denver 0
    Everyone else 0

    Yes, just blatantly disregard proven facts (the fact that Cahill has been proven eligible by the NCAA) in order to support your biases! This is America, after all!

    Are you mad I didn't list Brown? Or mad that the NCAA is letting an ineligible player play for Yale*?

    I know I know, OJ was innocent because juries are never wrong either.

    Why would I be mad you didn't mention Brown? I'm commenting on your inability to comprehend that Cahill has been cleared by the NCAA, and unless you can provide counter evidence, I see no reason to believe otherwise.

    Most people seem to want to indict Yale and Cahill simply because they don't want Yale to be good. But they are. Sucks.

    Yale* isnt worth the mention because they will be like USC football once they get sanctioned. Brown will win a banner before Yale* will. At least Brown will do it legitimately and won't have to cheat.

    Buddy...I'm a Brown fan too. Why do you seem to think I'm choosing Yale over Brown here?

    The fact of the matter is that Yale hasn't been found guilty of cheating. They have checked and re-checked the situation with the NCAA, the Ivy League, and the ECAC, and he has been cleared on all three fronts. Objectively, he's good to go.

    Do I want Yale to be better than Brown? No. But they are. And Cahill is an ELIGIBLE (and significant) part of that #1 team.

    Does this remind anyone else of a really bad installment of the Chappelle Show skit "When Keepin' It Real Goes Wrong"?

    I honestly expect someone to end their next post with "I don't like people playing on my phone."

    Yale* is as guilty as sin. Unfortunately, it won't come out for years and when it does it won't matter.

    Cahill was also the second shooter on the grassy knoll in Dallas in 1963
