    Way too early promising stats: Talented young bigs

    It's interesting (but understandable) how the term "Big's" means different things to different people. I generally don't get into the debate thing but.... "Our bigs need to lay a body on someone, box out and grab rebounds. It is that simple." Maybe simple in theory but something very...

    The Official Beat the Mountaineers of WVU in Sioux Falls, South Dakota Thread

    I'll take 29 min of Curry all season long, at least the first half of the season over any two freshmen sharing those 29 min. It's more about watching what is happening on the court and less about what is happening with the ball. It seems the newer guys have more composure when he's in the...

    I had to laugh a little when I received the email personally addressed to Dear Inc. (My account is in my companies name) I get it and I'll give them a b+ for effort, it's the thought that matters

    I believe you need to look back around 20 or 25 years to see how the actions of a very small group of donors have impacted the program to where it is today. Not only did they do it with money (most weren't/aren't wealthy people) but they would go out and "Sell" the program. I have no ties to...

    There was a time, not that long ago where the athletics department reached out to donors on a regular basis, even the lower level folks. That is definitely not the case any more. I can't understand where any business expects the customer to be the one to develope the relationship. The amount...

    I could use that $1000 clams! Heck I use my donation back as well and maybe give it to those in much greater need than VCU. The family that for the fist time ever needs to go to food panties, those parents that don't get a paycheck unless they can go to work. Sorry, but VCU will be fine and...

    Bill who donated $2,500.00 every year for 20 years is SOL. Tom who's donated $25,000.00 for two years is likely in good shape. I understand where the money trumps loyalty. Monday morning Quarter Backing but isn't long term loyalty via the donor points a better option over the long term? Any...

    Rams land 7’1 transfer big, Brendan Medley-Bacon

    Funny, An AAU coach once said that when "recruiting" young teen players. he looks at the build of the Mom's more than dads. Kids with tall moms continue to grow into their late teens, tall dads, short moms stop growing sooner. I don't know if there's any science behind it but he used it as a...

    Agree 100%. Heck I would even offer some type of incentive for those that defer their investment to next season. Maybe a couple RAF points or a free box of popcorn.

    I believe the same can be said for every small business out there. For three retail businesses within walking distance of my office, it has already become very real. They are no longer in business. One of the Owners has been a VCU Athletics supporter for over 10 years and I'm absolutely certain...

    Agree but there's been some "talk" about crediting this years payments to next year being more mandatory than optional. I personally believe it would be wise for VCU to offer a 100% refund for season tickets and the $250 donation and also an option to defer part or all of it to next year.

    I believe you are missing the Business Ethics part. What are your projected losses over the next 5 years if you don't offer refunds as an option when your customers of 10, 20 even 30 years decide to terminate your services? Do you have customers to replace the customers you lost due to "not...

    Mo Alie-Cox and VCU Football

    IF VCU ever revisited football. They need to look at ODU for not what to do. Monday morning QB-ing; there isn't anything I can think of that their Admin did to set them up for long term success. There are many programs out there outside of the P-5 that are quite successful where football is...

    Giving this more thought....what happens next year, 21-22 season? Without specific donor sections, does this mean there will be no "maintain your level of giving" to renew the seats we just selected other than the $250 per seat donation?

    I agree. I wasn't originally in favor but seemed to work out quite well. In the past there has been people donating say in the $5k level but ended up in $2500 sections. This new system seemed to eliminate the problem/issue. I seemed to me they also eliminated the large blocks of "corporate seats"
