NC State and other big schools have ACC TV money from football and hoops and much much bigger donor bases from which to help them make it through rainy days.
Bigger picture, It would be nice if folks cut the VCU AD a bit of slack on this. Between the obvious impacts of COVID and associated uncertainty, this is a real tough spot for a program like ours—we are more like a small business than a big franchise (P5), in these times. Perhaps folks can back off the animosity and figure out if/how they can help keep the program moving forward during tough times. If we are really a Ramily, now is the time to show it with maybe a bit more understanding and less malcontentedness.
These times are tough on all of us—do what’s best for you and yours, but maybe chill on the constant ripping of a small AD, trying to figure stuff out on the fly.
@Rowdy, not directed at you other than the opening reference to NCSU, just happens to be the last note in the string.
@RowdyPkunk reference to NC State is that NC State let season ticket holders credit their payment for season tickets this year to the purchase of season tickets next year. That has ZERO to do with ACC TV money. It's called serving your customer base in the best possible way. There is ABSOLUTELY no reason the VCU AD could not have offered a similar option vs. season ticket holders having to request a refund, which is going to cost VCU more operationally to process those refunds. It's just bad business on the part of VCU athletics. Keep the money and apply it to next year, versus having season ticket holders request a refund and then hope they renew next year. We're talking Business 101 here.
