    2015-2016 'A-10 vs Power 5' Thread

    I thought it would be cool to keep track of how we and the conference do against the Power 5 conferences in the OOC schedule as it goes along. I'm not including the AAC or Big East in the interests of accuracy and faithfulness to the thread title. The A-10 is 6-3 vs. P5 teams so far: Wins...

    The Official VCURamNation Hip Hop/Rap/R&B Thread

    All the talk about Lil Dicky on the recruiting thread had me thinking it would be cool to have a Hip Hop/Rap discussion thread for enthusiasts of the genre. Drake's 'Pound Cake' instrumental is a pretty dope beat to freestyle on... here's Childish Gambino on the same beat, which is pretty...
