    Daniel Ramsey Article

    https://www.cincinnati.com/story/spo...ey/5404787002/

    Good luck and the only game I saw last year(visiting from Conn) was Ramsey's only game. Remember a year ago getting Flohoops subscription and watching the games from Spain..what a change to this year and let's hope we see at least Big East play

    I want to know what asshole commented on his Twitter posts by saying "just stick to playing basketball". What's wrong with such people?

    There are idiots everywhere. You’ve just got to ignore them and press on. Do the right thing because it’s right, not because it will bring you accolades.

    I remember a quote from somewhere....”Don’t let the things you can’t control, control the things you can.”

    I think it’s great that he got a 3.6 and then a 4.0 gpa the 1st and 2nd semesters. That he wants to take advantage of the educational opportunity he has. Shows he’s got his head screwed on right. What he accomplishes on the court will be icing on the cake.

    Easier said than done, I suspect, when you are the target of such bullshit. I just feel badly for this young kid.

    I am guilty of reading it and saying, "Yes. But can her rebound in the Big East?" He has the non basketball stuff down pat which is of the utmost importance. I hope he can contribute and play with the big boys too.

    Some fans are really fanatics. Some are true assholes.

    His GPA is higher than mine was at X in first and second semester, I'm sure some other guys here too that have gone on to be successful, mind boggling anybody has a problem with him wanting to be a well rounded individual. Smfh.

    I didn't have my bones taken out of my body at three years old, straightened, put back in when I was six, having to 'learn to walk three times' and I still couldn't match those grades EVEN AT UC!-
