WFNM Memories

The picture of Dave Mann ’94 and Rich Quinlan ’95 in the library of WFNM brought back some of my best memories of my time at F&M. I hosted a radio show almost every semester of my four years, and Dave and Rich kept the whole operation running smoothly during that period.

I will note that we are young enough to have had two CD players in addition to the “two turntables and a microphone” mentioned in the caption.

The Summit of College Basketball

In the athletics recaps (Spring 2016), you mention that Coach Glenn Robinson joined three other coaches “as the only coaches to win 900 or more NCAA games.” While this is certainly laudable, it should have said  “900 or more NCAA men's basketball games.”

You overlooked the fact that Coach Pat Summit, who recently passed away, had 1,098 career wins—the most of any coach, in men's or women's basketball. There are also seven other coaches in women's basketball who have 900-plus career wins.
