    Simple question, hopefully looking for a simple answer:

    Why do we sit on the west bench at home in the Stu? Holler at ya boy!

    Because my seats are on that side & I like to lean over the barrier and watch the VCU RAMS come in & out on that end.

    Because West points towards Mecca. And VCU Basketball is a very holy thing.

    A request was made for a simple answer, but not a serious one.

    Alas.

    Because we don’t sit on the east bench?

    To be as far away from Fodu as possible.... :lol: Then again, shouldn't we wanna be far away from Fur too? ;)

    My guesses are....
    1. That's the side the main box office is on..... though the side of the box office that is open during games.... is on the east end side.

    2. The locker Room/Coaches office is on that side of the arena.

    3. They want be away from they Peppas & Rowdy Rams during timeouts so they can actually hear each other & most importantly the players can hear the coach.

    I know the Rowdy Rams & Peppas are on the East End side and have been for years..... and they could've very easily been on the West End Side instead.

    But that's how it's been from the opening of the STU and I guess they don't want to switch things up.

    What side of the arena did we sit on when we played games in Franklin Street and the Coliseum for our home games?

    Yeah, i think having the guys sit away from the band so they can hear better would be the real reason.

    Coliseum we sat on the same side as Stu.
    It's a locker room thing pure and simple.

    My guess is... the only person who would know is whoever the coach was when the STU first opened.
