The Ivy League Christian Observer magazine for Spring 2012 offerred a feature, "Paterno Impacted Athletes For Six Decades." The immortal Brown alumnus and Penn State legend was profiled. Yours truly was honored to be quoted. (see page 33 in the Spring 2012 issue.)
... after you see the new Cornell Football Website, it's not hard to imagine the Big Red leaving the other Ancient 7 in the dust. Just maybe??!!!
Indeed, a Perfect Storm is brewing on the most beautiful campus in America, amidst Wrestling, Lacrosse, Hockey domination over the years in the Ivies and now in the national ranks.
Our friends at Harvard, Yale, and Princeton have already taken notice, ... for a variety of reasons.
Most of us would never condone leaving the hallowed Ivy League in football, ... but just maybe some day soon there will be those who may ask us to take a hike, ... take a look at the new Cornell Website, and form your own prophecies relative to Big Red Football's future.

The following is the philosophy of Charles Schulz, the creator of the 'Peanuts' comic strip.
You don't have to actually answer the questions.
Just read the e-mail straight through, and you'll get the point.
1. Name the five wealthiest people in the world. 2 Name the last five Heisman trophy winners. 3 Name the last five winners of the Miss America pageant. 4 Name ten people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer Prize. 5 Name the last half dozen Academy Award winnersfor best actor and actress. 6. Name the last decade's worth of World Series Winners.
How did you do? The point is, none of us remember the headliners of yesterday. These are no second-rate achievers. They are the best in their fields. But the applause dies.. Awards tarnish.. Achievements are forgotten. Accolades and certificates are buried with their owners.
Here's another quiz. See how you do on this one: 1. List a few teachers who aided your journey through school. 2. Name three friends who have helped you through a difficult time. 3. Name five people who have taught you something worthwhile. 4. Think of a few people who have made you feel appreciated and special!! 5. Think of five people you enjoy spending time with.
Easier? The lesson: The people who make a difference in your life are not the ones with the most credentials.. the most money...or the most awards. They simply are the ones who care the most
Pass this on to those people who have either made a difference in your life, or whom you keep close in your heart. 'Don't worry about the world coming to an end today. It's already tomorrow inAustralia !'
