It is so nice to have someone genuine like Colgate's freshman center Adonal Foyle in sports (Special Delivery, Jan. 16). Here is a young man with his ego in check, his mind firmly set on a goal and his heart in the right place. No trash-talking, no attitude, no "me first." Colgate is fortunate to have him on the basketball court and on campus.

You think it's wonderful that Foyle spurned Syracuse and Duke to attend Colgate, but one purpose of athletics is to be challenged against the best competition possible. Therefore, in my opinion, he made a mistake.

The "They Said It" in your Jan. 9 SCORECARD left me with an empty feeling. How could coach Jim Moore allow his girls' basketball team to run up an 111-point margin of victory over a rival and call it a "morale booster"? It seems more like a moral debacle to me. I feel bad for all the kids involved in such an embarrassment, especially Moore's kids.
