AG's going nowhere unless offered king money and maybe not even then. He took that place to top 5 in a few short seasons. He'll do it again. He's not worried about anything. Why would he leave unless he gets offered Duke, NC, KY or Louisville? Dude's a bona fide coach. Got us into the big leagues and he wasn't even here when it happened, If he leaves I will be surprised. But then again I'm wrong most of the time...

He is most definitely not leaving for anything other than an ultra elite coaching job. He'll have no issues grabbing a squad full of four stars going forward.

Assuming Dayton wins @ UMass, they will set the new mark for highest ranked opponent at the STU I think.

Another thought that crossed my mind, Marcus Evans has the most total career points for any VCU player. I don’t think we’ve had any other transfers with that many career points.

Ummm....he took a risk on obi, who was a solid talent with academic concerns and hit the roulette wheel. Smart money knows when to walk away from the table.....don’t be surprised at the quality that will be ringing him up.

Good God our only Q1 win could fall of the board and you guys are arguing about someone else's coach leaving. Who cares?

Yeah, 2-3 in this upcoming 3 game stretch Q1/2 stretch and I will be a lot more relaxed. Really not liking the Kenpom predictions for it though.
KenPom predictions aren’t infallible; no one’s are infallible. I pay absolutely no attention to his predictions. He’s got great statistical analysis, but that doesn’t mean his predictions are always right. I’d be willing to bet that he had Duke crushing SFA and Kentucky crushing Evansville this season.

To be fair, I’d bet that very few people called those correctly :)
Makes me want to find a site that shows an aggregate of who called what. I may have been on one or someone has already linked it and I didn’t pay attention...

That’s my point: no one can accurately predict the outcome of events, that have as much randomness as sports, 100% of the time. Sports is random and a big part of it is mental, which all the stats in the world can’t truly measure. That Kansas team we beat in 2011 was a much better team than we were, with a few NBA players. They probably would beat us 19 out of 20 times, but all it takes is one game. That day was our one glorious game against them. Did any college basketball expert or analytics site predict us to win that game? I don’t know the answer to that, but I doubt it.

I truly am not picking on KenPom. He has great stuff. My point is spending too much time worrying about anyone’s predictions is pointless.
