    Recruiting Silas Demary Jr.: Decision Friday, October 7th at 3 PM EST!!!

    When you have one foot out of the door from being fired, you offer everyone you can and hope something sticks. Regarding today's college recruiting landscape, more kids are open to one and done situations regarding the coach/school as long as the NIL money is good. They know they can collect...

    Recruiting Silas Demary Jr.: Decision Friday, October 7th at 3 PM EST!!!

    Keatts overhauled his coaching staff during the offseason as a last ditched effort to save his job. Out ore James Johnson, Roy Roberson and Mike Summey. In my opinion, Keatts never should have hired James Johnson. In are Levi Watkins, Kareem Richardson and Joel Justice. Keatts' contract is...

    You are definitely living in a different world than a lot of us. Ed has made nothing easy, and I can tell you from personal experience that he does NOT respect longtime RAF members. You may be part of the 10% he caters to, but his approach to the average donor is non existent.

    I think what makes Tony Bennett a great coach is the fact that he is not afraid to force his players into an uncomfortable style of play during OOC play. He knows it will only make them better later in the season, especially come NCAA Tournament time.

    I have NC State connections and I agree State is not a good option as Keatts is on the hot seat big time. The only thing that is probably keeping State in the hunt for some of these players is NIL money. And that's also what's keeping VCU from making some of these final cuts. Regarding Wake...

    Ed has had unlimited opportunities to sit down with Clemson's IPTAY to see how their model works and what can be used by VCU, with two of his kids attending Clemson. My question is, has he ever took the time to do that? IPTAY may be the premier college athletic funding model in the country...

    And that is precisely my point. The current athletic administration has no vision when it comes to growing the RAF from the bottom up. And that starts with Ed.

    You have to at least try, and this administration has no desire to even attempt to attract a younger donor base. Considering the size of the base population graduating from VCU each year, even a 5% recruitment/retention of that base by the RAF would add significant numbers to the RAF...

    VCU has over 6,000 students living on campus. And that doesn't include those that live in apartments in neighborhoods surrounding the campus. That's more than enough "traditional" student base to pull from for future RAF members. VCU athletics is missing the boat big time if the RAF...

    That's because the Alumni Association better understands their alumni base than the athletic department understands their fan/donor base. And I can tell you first hand, the Alumni Association treats their donors with a lot more respect than the athletic department treats its RAF members. The...

    First, they call them non-revenue sports for a reason. And that applies to EVERY NCAA school in the country, not just VCU. Regarding women's golf, the mid-Atlantic region does not provide enough women's golfers now that are NCAA competitive. Of course VCU could load up on players from Korea...

    Maybe you should do your research before you throw a particular sport under the bus. Jon Riley has done a remarkable job at VCU considering the resources VCU has provided him. FYI - The T&F teams were not fully funded, scholarship wise, by VCU until two years ago, and yet they have been a...

    All four schools should be part of the equation, not just Temple and Memphis. There's plenty of room to also add a Wichita State and/or Drake.

    Is that your assumption, or do you have knowledge that VCU tried? Wichita State and VCU have a lot more in common institutional/athletic wise than fur and Wichita State.

    There is no NCAA sanctioned men's softball. Miller Lite and Bud Light are the only entities that sanction men's softball. Regarding replacing men's T&F, VCU does not have to mirror each sport they fund. Title IX looks at total men's sports vs. total women's sports. Title IX does not break it...

    For Funsies: Conference Reallignment/Creation

    The ACC's new format makes perfect sense, while still trying to maintain as many rivalries as possible. And it's better for the conference overall. Currently, NC State only plays some ACC schools twice every 8 years. The new format will shorten that timeframe to every four years. And the...
