    Sporting News and Lindy's College Basketball Magazines

    Please excuse if this has been posted elsewhere. I just received my copies of the above referenced national basketball magazines and it's certainly good news for VCU. Sporting News has us as #18 in their national rankings and #1 in the A-10. They talk about us being the national steals leaders...

    EMBARRASSING EXPOSE ON ODU DRUG/CRIME PROBLEMS

    WTKR in Norfolk aired a very detailed expose on drug and crime problems in and around the ODU campus. Apparently in the last three years investigations of drug abuse violations are up a whoppng 300%. Drug related crime is reaching epidemic proportions in and around campus including robberies...

    MonarchNation Comedy boards

    Although I rarely visit the Old Dominimum MonarchNation boards and never post over there if you want some comedy pay the site a visit. It is absolutely comical with respect to how they are dealing or should I say not dealing with our success. The level of posting is so juvenile from many of...

    MEN'S BASKETBALL ROSTER FOR 2010-11 NOW UP

    The men's basketball roster for 2010-11 is now up on the official VCU website. There were a couple of things of interest that stood out to me. DJ is listed at 7' 250 lbs. If this proves to be accurate it certainly bodes well for the Rams. From what I'm being told this is close to being on the...

    Team Of The Decade - Baseball

    In the Richmond Times-Dispatch article covering VCU's CAA Baseball Championship Paul is quoted as saying this should solidify VCU as the team of the decade in the CAA. He rightly points out that in addition to winning five(5) championships we lost another two standing on the field. That's pretty...

    GAVIN AND SKEEN....

    It will be interesting to see what the total impact on this team will be when we have both Jay and Jamie on board. Jay's impact has been amazing and I'm of the opinion he still has some rust to shed and is still getting acclimated after missing 18 months of action. At the end of the day I...

    OBSESSION CONTINUES....

    Occasionally, and I mean not very often, I will check-in on the Monarch Butterfly Nation boards to see what kind vitriolic nonsense they are spewing with regards to VCU. There is no question the obsession continues. It is almost Freudian in nature with those guys. I guess this is what happens...

    JAMIE SKEEN

    Since it's summer(almost) and there is not a great deal to talk about other than recruiting I thought I would throw out some tidbits with respect to Jamie. I think this is germane since I consider him to be part of the incoming recruiting class. In Scout.coms final rankings for 2006 they had...

    Recruiting Reports/Services

    It never ceases to amaze me how fluid recruiting rankings are. We are seeing empirical evidence of that again this very week as the various services up-date their player rankings. In the good old days you basically had ONE national recruiting guru, that being Howard Garfinkel. He ran the...
