Reveno and Cornell

Post by ekrauss on Thu Apr 08, 2010 1:16 pm

A visit to the Cornell Basketball Blog has Coach Reveno listed as one of the candidates for the recently-vacated coaching position there. I think this list is somewhat random and highly speculative, but it could be a position that might hold some interest for Reveno given Cornell's recent success. While Cornell isn't nearly the level of Stanford from a basketball perspective, the job could be appealing to a person like Reveno and does have some advantages compared to UP. I'm not really worried, but it's an interesting development.

45 miles from Syracuse. Some people call that a hoops town.

NYC fancies itself pretty phenomenal at hoops too, and that isn't TOO far away... Although I guess that would be like Salem proclaiming itself right next to Seattle...

Ithaca's Reputation, per wiki:
In addition to its above-mentioned liberal politics, Ithaca is commonly listed among the most culturally liberal of American small cities. The Utne Reader named Ithaca "America's most enlightened town" in 1997. According to ePodunk's Gay Index, Ithaca has a score of 231, versus a national average score of 100.

Like many small college towns, Ithaca has also received accolades for having a high overall quality of life. In 2004, Cities Ranked and Rated named Ithaca the best "emerging city" to live in the United States. In 2006, the Internet realty website "Relocate America" named Ithaca the fourth best city in the country to relocate to. In July 2006, Ithaca was listed as one of the "12 Hippest Hometowns for Vegetarians" by VegNews Magazine and chosen by Mother Earth News as one of the "12 Great Places You've Never Heard Of."

In its earliest years during frontier days, what is now Ithaca was briefly known by the names "The Flats" and "Sodom," the name of the Biblical city of sin, due to its reputation as a town of "notorious immorality", a place of horse racing, gambling, profanity, Sabbath breaking, and readily available liquor. These names did not last long; Simeon DeWitt renamed the town Ithaca in the early 1800s, though nearby Robert H. Treman State Park still contains Lucifer Falls.

That early reputation for immorality, together with its more recent reputation as having a left-leaning population, has once again made Ithaca mildly infamous in some circles as the "City of Evil," due to a satirical campaign by members of a politically conservative online discussion board. Some Ithacans, and those from surrounding areas, have embraced the label, although it's not certain how many. According to religious conservatives, this idea is further buoyed by Cornell University's early nickname, "the godless university" which came about due to their lack of affiliation with any organized religion.
Nothing about hoops in that summary!

Ithaca is not a hoops city. But the Cornell community and student body is very much sports-oriented. This year alone the wrestling team finished 2nd in the NCAAs behind Iowa (and always sells out its wrestling-only arena), the women's hockey team finished second in the NCAAs, and the men's hockey team made it to the Sweet Sixteen. Last year the men's lacrosse team was 2nd in the NCAA tourney behind Syracuse. Even the football team, which has been pretty dismal lately, gets rousing support at its games. The same fervor UP fans display for women's soccer is present for three or four sports at Cornell.

What you mean wiki's aren't infallible academic sources?!? (I think I have a thesis to go re-write...)

Umm, I didn't write that, wiki did. But I have seen some fairly unorganized Catholic activities. jocolor

Isnt Cornell the school that has been in the national news lately because of its higher than average suicide rate among the student body? If I remember correctly its a pretty staggering statistic.
