    The season seems surreal

    Its been a long time since a VCU team has been in this position. Yes Mike's first year we didnt make the NCAA tournament. However, that team was doomed from the start and no one had any real expectations. This team I was thinking maybe Sweet 16 and to be here today with almost 0 chance of...

    Was D Jenkins supposed to be an elite Defender?

    After listening to the Announcers last night, I wondered if DJ was supposed to be a elite defender when he arrived? I for one thought his offense would exceed his D. It doesn't seem to be working out that way. Now DJ can get his shot, and he can score at will but rarely has he imposed his...

    Fred Van Fleet

    I hated this guy and rooted against him while at W. S. U. However, I was glad to see him, Kawhi, and even Steph bring it home in the NBA finals. Who said the P5 rules the NBA.

    The 3 big guys deserve love

    Coming into the season I like many of us really questioned our post play and depth. MSS played sparingly as a Freshmen and he's only 6'6 maybe 6'7, Corey Douglas was straight out of Juco and the rap on hims was his offense just wasn't there yet, and then we had Gilmore who as we all know was...

    Glad we chose Ed

    Looks like Dave Benedict has his hands full at UConn. He has the University and the AD embroiled in public litigation regarding Kevin Ollies contract. He has led UConn AD to a 40 million dollar short fall. He paid a 1-11 Football Coaching staff bonuses even though he knew he had the short...

    All Time Team

    Troy Daniels? He was never All Conference. Never led the team in scoring. Didn't play much until his Jr. year. Not in the top 10 in scoring. How does this happen? Danny Kottack (sp), Phil Stinnie, Bernard Hopkins, Kenny Stancell, Ju, Chris Cheeks, Sheron Mills, Bernard Harris (and yes he...

    VCU Ramnation-The Fans

    I have never been more proud of our fans than I was last night. First you all showed class and gave SS a great ovation prior to the game. That meant a lot to SS and his family. We haven't always done the same for past coaches. Second and most important, when our guys needed a boost the Fans...

    Maybe just Maybe WW's hiring was good for VCU

    I know this may not be a popular position to take, however hiring WW two years ago may have been the best thing that could have happened to VCU and its men's basketball program. First, WW knew the program and some of the players, he didn't have a learning curve with regards to player ability...

    Off Season Player Activity-Camps?

    Its off season, Mel was invited to the 3 point shoot out, and did well (unofficially 3rd). Anyone else invited anywhere this summer? Chris Paul, Lebron James, Portsmouth Invitational, NBA Combine, USA Basketball etc. (camps, tryouts)? Thought this might be a nice place to post all such...

    A10 Accolades for our guys

    Its getting near end of the season and soon we'll have the A10 post season awards for individuals including the coach. With that in mind, I think a few guys stand out that may not get credit they deserve. First Mo is a solid post defender and should again get a spot on the A10 All defensive...
