SDSU right winger gets inside of Cornell left back on through ball and gets taken down, PK, goal.

Player is substituted. Game resumes, heated, loud argument between the player and PF on the sideline. PF is a big guy, weighs over 500 lbs. and escalated into him "accidently" pushing her. Incident could be seen on game video, but that segment came down days later.

Story comes from previous players, asst. coaches and athletic dept. staff, he got fired.
Any video footage?

For five years before he got there, Ivy 2-31-2:

2007 4 12 0 0-7-0 (Ivy)
2008 2 12 1 1-6-0
2009 1 13 1 0-7-0
2010 6 8 1 1-5-1
2011 2 13 1 0-6-1


Since he left:

2017 2-9-3 (0-5-2 Ivy)
2018 1-13-1 (0-7)

So yeah, I think he did okay while he was there. You appear to have some inside information regarding his coaching style and its effect on players, maybe your daughter played for him, who knows. Not here to champion him or vilify Cornell program; I have nothing but respect for college players, i know its hard to do both, especially at a school like Cornell. I am just looking at numbers, would hardly characterize them as failing miserably.
So they weren't good before him, weren't good with him, are not good after him which makes him not successful like the others. The game passed him by over 20 years ago. Where was he before Cornell? An asst. for four years at Wisconsin. She hired him as a favor because she was his asst. at Penn State way back in the day. For four years he was applying to jobs all over the country. D1,D2, D3, no one would hire him. He applied to his alma mater, St. Lawrence Univ in upstate NY and even they wouldn't give him an interview. That speaks volumes.

So I guess the Transylvania team did poorly this year? Not quite.

Sorry, the coach’s results do not fit your narrative. Again, you must have some history or a real axe to grind with this coach; no one cares or knows that much about some coach with a peripheral connection to soccer in this area. What is it?

Most of these threads are anonymous trolls settling scores. No one should take this stuff to seriously.

It doesn't surprise me he couldn't get a job at any level for 4 years after getting fired at Syracuse. Players described him as creepy and grumpy. The administration had enough of him. He didn't help himself by stating to other staff that the only reason his boss, the African-American athletic director, got the job at Syracuse only because of his skin color. Ouch. Maybe it slipped out during one of his many drunken episodes after drinking but once the AD found out, that was the end of Farmer.

He's been known in the past in the 80's and 90's here in NY as having a reputation for making racist "jokes" while drunk.

This was his record at Syracuse

2004, 8-9-2, Big East 2-7-1, 9th out of 12

2005, 4-12-4, 3-6-3, 8th place

2006, 4-12-3, 3-7-1, 12th place

2007, 7-8-4, 3-6-2, 12th place
_______________________________

23-41-13, .383, overall

11-26-7, .329, conference

Not good. Another failed tenure.

And now you are responding to yourself?

Someone else should lay off the sauce.

Again, what is the personal connection? If you are taking all of this time to respond, with anecdotes that no one but a very few people would or could know, it must be some doozy of a personal connection.

So that there is equal flow of information, my bias is pro Transylvania; I know someone that cares about the school and I am trying to figure out why you are continually trashing it; and please don’t say you are not - a coach is a representative of the school, much more than any administrator and most professors.

So go ahead, tell us, this is anonymous, why such a problem with farmer?

My connection is with Syracuse. Did the Kentucky school HR office and athletic director do a background check before hiring him? Seems like they do not know what happened before Syracuse at Tenn. Tech.? Do they know why he got fired at Cornell? Fired at Syracuse? Fired at Tenn. Tech. where he lasted one season, 9 months?

So go ahead, tell us your connection? 75 year old coaching, drinking buddy of his? Or his son?

? I already told you, an attenuated relationship to current school.

Regarding your questions, you are the one that seems to have all of the insider information, no idea if background checks were done by any school prior to hiring.

What would you find? Just do a search, nothing scandalous about any of his tenures anywhere; maybe they should have called you.

He did not do so well at Syracuse but his results are consistent with what came immediately before him, and since, at that program (they seem to have been pretty good in the late 90s).

Isn't the Tennessee Tech question and statement a little unfair, didn't he did leave TT after one season to go to Syracuse?
