Seriously? That's the level you are stooping to? I don't have to prove anything to you. I have no reason to lie about my experience just to try and "win" a debate on a sports forum. You're entitled to your opinions but when you do something like that you turn a discussion about college athletics into a personal attack. The fact of the matter is that there are dozens of articles on the web about students not being able to take required courses because faculty hours have been furloughed. Look them up. My experience may not be "typical" but it's certainly not unheard of, and it's a problem that is growing more and more common with every passing term. You yourself acknowledged a problem among universities nationwide, so why wouldn't it happen at a large public school with more than 30,000 undergraduate students? Aren't you also forgetting how Governor McDonnell decided to "appropriate" money from VCU as some sort of reprimand for the school raising tuition?
