It is very disheartening to have people criticize one’s parenting when they have absolutely no idea what they are talking about. Have you met us or our children? Have you asked anyone who does know us about our kids or the way we parent?
During my tenure no player was ever academically ineligible to matriculate at Binghamton, and most of the young men from last year are still students. Even the one player who got in trouble with the law, in fact won the Chancellor’s award last year for Academic Excellence. Unfortunately, it seems such facts have gotten lost in a rush to paint the entire university’s basketball program with a broad brush, thus tarnishing an entire group of young men who came to Binghamton to achieve their dreams.
