Hopefully this post doesn’t jinx anything…

I don’t want to get too excited too early in the season, but has anyone else noticed the dominance being displayed this fall by VCU teams?

Going down the list…

– Field Hockey is one of the Ram’s two undefeated teams, starting the season off 4-0 and outscoring their opponents 13-5.

– Men’s soccer has three wins to zero losses (with two ties), and have outscored their opponents 12-3.

– Volleyball has one loss but NINE wins (five straight), and have won 14 more sets than opposing teams during that run.

– Women’s soccer is coming off a golden goal win over the Big East’s Pitt Panthers yesterday, and have outscored their opponents 8-6 on the season, good for a 3-2-2 record.

That’s a combined record of 19-3-4 this season — according to my latest VCU press release, the best start in 15 years. ¬†Also via that press release, that’s five total wins against programs from the ACC and Big East. Not a bad start for the Black and Gold and new AD Ed McLaughlin.

Women’s soccer takes on UMBC (1-6-1) Friday at SportsBackers (very winnable), while the men head to Fla. Gulf Coast (3-2), field hockey to heads to Davidson (2-3) and volleyball heads to Army (6-4).

The near future looks bright for the Rams, hopefully a nice primer for what you all come here to read and discuss…VCU basketball, which sees exhibition action just 52 days from now.
