I’m not sure how this season will end, but I doubt that come this April there will be any realistic candidate that I would want more than MR. He’s our guy and I believe in him. If you miss your old girlfriends (Shaka and Will) then go run to them. All of your friends will make fun of you because that’s what people do when they can’t get over their ex’s.This is totally unfair. Five years as a D1 assistant, assisted on a final four team, three years as a D1 head coach, A10 regular season championship, NCAA appearance, A10 coach of the year. I'm sorry, calling him a D3 hire is ridiculous.
A REAL downer. Splitting the road games and a win vs Dayton would put us in good shape, but it’s hard to see that right now.This team's best wins are LSU and Richmond with now what appears to be a Q4 loss at home where the team rarely loses. Playing like that knowing what is at stake is a shame. This is a real downer. Hope they decide to shock the world in Brooklyn because running through @ UR, Dayton and @SLU does not seem too promising.
Agreed. Even if we went 6-1 down the stretch with a loss to Dayton, our resume would include wins at home vs LSU, home vs Richmond, at Richmond, and at Saint Louis with one bad loss to George Mason. Our record would be 23-8 before the A10 tournament. I still think that would be thin.We've basically toss away any margin for error. UR is must win. Dayton is now must, must win. We gotta figure a way to beat Saint Louis and Davidson on the road and not suffer anymore bad losses including in the tournament. We may need to win out and make it to the A10 finals to dance.
Making the tournament keeps us relevant.This “setting back the program” takes are pretty bad y’all. Can we at least wait until the end of the season to decide if this bad loss to Mason really set the program back?
My sarcastic point exactly and he should act accordingly. If I’m not meeting expectations don’t sugar coat it, tell me one way or another but I deserve to hear the truth from someone I look to for guidance and direction. I don’t deserve to have my shortcomings glossed over with a board brush statement such as “they wanted it more” or “they our played us”. By not having the facts told to me in a way I can learn and then grow by taking action the relationship between player & coach, boss & employee, teacher & student, or leader & follower breaks down. Mike dropped the ball by glossing over the failures which occurred tonight by lumping them into his generalizationsNo. Hes your boss/teacher/leader.
And supposedly the team was on the verge of a mutiny if Wade stayed. And to date, Wade has exactly one more NCAA tournament victory at VCU than Rhoades has, and one less A10 regular season championship or coach of the year honor. So let's not fabricate Wade into some all-world coach who's methods were flawless.People thought it was horrible wge. Wade got on under performing players. They liked that players smiled with Rhoades.
They thought that smiling players was a goid thing.
Really? What's a "long time?" Since 2013? I can rattle off a ton of worse losses off the dome easily.Coach speak is getting old. I'd be throwing poop around and cursing up a storm. Several players should be benched and some should be suspended. I've been watching VCU basketball for a long time and this was the worst game that I can remember. Not only ruined the season, but set back the program big time.
The last three home losses of 2011 come to mind. Don’t forget the Brian Johnson hack on Maynor in 2008. Or the JMU home loss in 2005 or the Drexel - Bashir Mason 40 foot heave in 2005.Really? What's a "long time?" Since 2013? I can rattle off a ton of worse losses off the dome easily.
I'm not done with MR yet but his pressers are unlistenable. I haven't sat through an entire one since the first one when he was hired. It's just same cliche after same cliche. I'll give Wade that. His pressers were couldn't miss.Coach speak is getting old. I'd be throwing poop around and cursing up a storm. Several players should be benched and some should be suspended.

Wade was an asshat, but his pressers were VERY entertaining.I'm not done with MR yet but his pressers are unlistenable. I haven't sat through an entire one since the first one when he was hired. It's just same cliche after same cliche. I'll give Wade that. His pressers were couldn't miss.
