Am I the only one that thinks we are screwed for the next 5+ years?

It was only about 5 years ago when I was in the Smitty watching my beloved GW Colonials beat up on Duquesne - and they had this little stud of a guard named TJ McConnell.

How far we have fallen!

I'm starting to give up hope.

Give up hope please---and leave this site for good.Thanks for your

Nope. Youre not alone.  I'm afraid it's going to only get worse.  With all of the latest news of administration not doing enough to protect the student athlete from sexual abuse, we could be in a ton of trouble.  Nero meeting with students and student-athletes regularly alone behind closed doors AFTER he was told to stop is very disturbing. Good that the new president did the right thing.  I'm worried it was not soon enough.  


mentzinger2/1/2018 12:43:45 PM

We are going to have to work through such challenges as having a new president, no AD, a coach with no experience, and a legacy of misconduct and bad leadership from the ex-AD. It won't happen overnight, it may never happen, and it might happen after a lower-conference reset, which would be a huge stain no one should want to own as a charter member of the A-10.


keith greene2/1/2018 1:26:16 PM

"a legacy of misconduct and bad leadership from the ex-AD"?  Can you show me evidence of this?  That's pretty incendiary.


mentzinger2/1/2018 4:51:00 PM

Hi Keith:

PN offered at least one student-athlete improper benefits such as an off-campus apartment, and he also is the subject of an EEOC lawsuit alleging gender discrimination in his office. Facts.


chet2/1/2018 4:56:54 PM

Let's not forget that masturbation is an abomination, Mentzinger.

ruserious2/1/2018 4:59:34 PM

Mentzinger where is the proof of this student/apartment benefit??


the real dude2/1/2018 5:03:32 PM

Keith, President LeBlanc's actions in Dec say it all - unless you really buy the press release and believe Nero left in early Dec to "pursue" other opportunities.

A good leader would have handled this whole mess in a much different manner. Knapp, by anyone's definition, was not a good leader.

These discussions will continue for the next 5 years. Raise High!


the real dude2/1/2018 5:07:10 PM

Proof is in same file that contains allegations about ML being mean, saying Nero wanted to beat off to tapes, etc. Become a distinguished grad, get some credibility and go ask LeBlanc to let you take a peek.

ruserious2/1/2018 6:51:59 PM

I know what's in that "file" and there is nothing close to what Mentzinger is talking about


newgwfan2/1/2018 7:14:25 PM

Ruserious has it right. Mentzinger is a liar. 


casual fan 20222/1/2018 7:17:16 PM

This speaks volumes about everything.  


bigfan2/1/2018 7:26:52 PM

Mentzinger actually offers details.

Are those of you alleged file readers saying no private dinners?


chet2/1/2018 7:39:09 PM

Bigfan, St. Michael, the Beloved, offered details, too. How'd he get them? That's what inquiring, sick minds want to know.



bigfan2/1/2018 7:47:08 PM

Mentzinger offers details Chet. Is that all you can offer us? 

This is disgusting, this man PN preying on students and male students no less.  How do I know it's true? I read it here.  What do you know Chet?


gw692/1/2018 9:07:32 PM

This entire thread is becoming a comedic version of "Waiting for Godot".

Absolute nonsense top to bottom that has me chortling nonstop.

I now read the site to get a contact high.Im completely serious.

With all the various noms de plume fighting for airtime to debate 

the same old shit --I simply drop in on occasion to see how the patients 

are faring in the day room.


bigfan2/1/2018 9:46:13 PM

7:47 Not my post, needless to say.

Pretty sad that someone gets off on this.

gw692/1/2018 10:07:56 PM

I rest my case!!

gw future2/1/2018 10:14:48 PM

RUSerious has been wrong about just about everything he has posted here. Remember “ML wouldn’t see a dime” we were told and that Nero wasn’t going anywhere. Now he wants us to believe he knows what’s in the file? When I stop laughing I will try to post. But in the meantime I am sure the Fake Doc can help with the pathological lying.


the real dude2/2/2018 1:52:52 PM

GWMBB continues to garner national attention.

Now we are being mentioned in regards to Temple's erratic play and inconsistencies by statements like "Temple lost to GW in an early non-conference game - a team that is at the bottom of a weak A-10 this year".

Enough already. We need a new AD hired who will then begin the re-build after cutting loose the current coaching staff.


the real dude2/4/2018 6:21:25 PM

Now in sole possession of last place team in the A-10.

To any of our legit posters, have you ever seen us in last place other than our 1-27 season?


gw05092/4/2018 7:05:45 PM

Is the Knapp-Nero Curse like the Foot-Fist Way?

the dude2/11/2018 8:38:32 PM

We could use some good news right about now. I heard from one of my many reliable sources that Nero will be coming back to assist the AD Office for a couple weeks - just like he promised.

He will spend some time with Mojo on coaching strategies and has even offered up his condo to any player (preferably 6"6 or above) that wants to get off campus and chill out.

He will also spend some time with the marketing folks to figure out how to raise attendance. Attendance should never be listed at below 2000 because thats how many tickets they give away each game.

He will also be promoting the rowing and squash programs around DC to peek interest in these great american sports.


dominic2/12/2018 6:17:18 PM

Great post Dude. Patrick's knowledge and experience will certainly be helpful to Mojo. Patrick did a great job of mentoring Cimino, who would be killing it in the Patriot League right now if AU would just give him some minutes.


rich maier2/27/2018 11:13:37 PM

GW settles with ML after allegedly "firing him for cause"

Nero suddenly resigns in the middle of the school year to "pursue other opportunities"

GW is battling to stay out of a "play-in" game the one year we get the conference tournament in D.C.

Provost Maltzman being shoved out the door as soon as the semester ends

Coach Carm (nicknamed Alexander Haig by the other coaches) told to move on or will be kicked out the door by LeBlanc using his left leg (right leg is for Maltzman)

American University loses in the 1st round of the Patriot League Tournament (Cimino plays 0 minutes again) to finish the year 6-24. Coach Brennan will be gone within a week. Coaches get fired everywhere Cimino goes.

Nobody believes that Rich Maier is my real name and that I went to GW. Every time I post my transcript here, nobody is able to see it except for The Dude.

The curse is alive and well in Foggy Bottom!


chet2/28/2018 2:06:11 PM

I will start believing in the curse if we lose to Fordham tonight.

littlebirdie3/9/2018 6:33:23 PM

Coach Carm will be leaving shortly "to pursue other opportunities" - Nero code for "don't let the door hit you in the ass on your way out".

Maltzman will be departing at the end of this semester "to pursue other opportunities".

LeBlanc's clean up is almost done.

The saga continues.

Re: Littlebird's post:  Change is good.

gw future3/9/2018 8:02:45 PM

Hope LeBlanc is using bleach.


gwfan3/9/2018 8:16:42 PM

@littlebirdie your obsession with Carm is creeeeeepy
