    Why I love VCU Basketball

    Coach is always talking about how he loves our guys so I thought I’d share why I love VCU basketball and hope you do the same. VCU represents the blue collar work ethic. We have to work harder for what we want. The basketball team, our school and our city are often overlooked. We are thought of...

    SlingTv

SlingTv is the first time you can get ESPN without having a cable subscription. I am currently on the seven day trial and it works great on my roku. I still don't think it...

    Bigshot Brad 2.0

    I don't want to take anything from Graham's game winner but how about Jordan Burgess hitting that crucial three down the stretch. Looking forward to the future with another Burgess on the court.

    Infographic on Basketball Revenue/Spending

    I saw this on another messageboard and didn't see it posted here. It's very neat to see how VCU compares to other schools. Right now we spend about 3.8 million a year and would need to about double that amount to be on par with BCS schools. http://www.newyorker.com/sandbox/business/ncaa.html

    VCU Rowdy Rams/pep band wikipedia page

    In light of the VCU Rowdy Rams winning student section of the year, I thought it would be good to create a wikipedia page highlighting the events and traditions of the VCU supporters group. The page was flagged because I hadn't put all the information in before first creating it. They won't...

    Potential NBA team could temporarily play in Richmond

    I saw this and didn't see it posted anywhere. My question is why can't Richmond build an arena to house an NBA team. The arena could be a joint venture with VCU and give us the much added space we need. Apparently, Virginia Beach wants half of the money from the state so it looks to be more of a...

    DJ Haley

    Does anyone know why Smart has kept Haley's playing time to a minimum. At times during the game, we needed that extra big guy to help free up space down low but instead we went with a smaller shooting lineup. He did great at the beginning and then just disappeared.

    Are they ever going to change the VCU license plates?

    I would really like to buy a VCU license plate but I feel that we currently have outdated plates offered by the state. If these plates are used for scholarships, you think VCU would want good looking license plates. Here's the link... If we put the new VCU seal to replace the current branches...

    What's going to happen to George Mason

    With VCU going to the A-10 and ODU most likely going to Conference USA, what's going to happen to George Mason? Some of you may say who cares but I think they are a quality program that definitely doesn't deserve to be left behind in the CAA. I have heard the UMass may leave the A10 for their...

    VCU Medical Center could be changed back to MCV

    I saw this bill in the general assembly and it has me pretty worried that we will take a giant step backwards in becoming a united University. http://lis.virginia.gov/cgi-bin/legp604.exe?121+ful+HB935 Are there any alumni that can make some noise against this bill? The last thing VCU needs is...
