Re: Where in the World is Jovan?

It depends on what was stipulated at the time of the donation. Some very large donations are used to fund school expansion - like adding a science curriculum (I believe someone donated $400M to Harvard for such an expansion). Some are for grants, etc. for specific purposes and are only given if stud...

Re: Where in the World is Jovan?

I am not fully enlightened on the entire college admissions issue, but I think the problem has to do with admissions having to do with merit not privilege. Honestly, a few million dollars is a relative pittance to most Ivy League colleges. With regards to endowments, last I looked (about 5 years ago...

Re: 2021 CIFSS D2 Thread

Do you have a link to the results for Villa Park? I only have the schedule link, which was not updated with scores.

Re: 2021 CIFSS D4 Thread

Current top 10 with my 'power' scores (this division differs from the 'official' polls/rankings more than any of the others. Seems like there is a lot of inconsistency in how teams play in this division, so my algorithm has difficulty due to not comparing head-to-head scores): 1. Fullerton 2. Elsino...

Re: MPSF Invitational

There are an awful lot of assumptions in these arguments. I don't see too many arguing based on knowledge, but instead just making up 'questions' with implied answers to justify an opinion. I personally know of more than a handful of European players going to college here in the US. Some of them com...

Re: MPSF Invitational

Just curious if there are other college sports that recruit foreign players similar to college water polo. I wouldn't know because I don't follow any other sports - however, my guess is that any collegiate sport that is big in Europe (or South America, or Asia, or...) will have foreign athletes. Pe...

Re: MPSF Invitational

I get the sense that some, if not many, are conflating 'admitted' with 'made the team'. Being admitted into the school has absolutely nothing at all to do with whether you play water polo in the vast majority of cases. There are 32,000+ students at SJSU, according to a Google search, of which about ...
