    Melvin is working on what I would call a FroMo (Afro Mohawk).

    One of my favorite quotes is by Muhammad Ali......"Service is the rent you pay for your room here on earth".
    We all know how Coach Smart loves his quotes.
    I am proud to be a VCU Ram. 1988 in the house!

    What I love about being a Ram is that it's not just the MBB team that's out there, so may of our programs and individuals are out supporting the greater Richmond area; many in ways you never get to see...

    If the sides of the head are not shaved it's merely a feauxhawk.

    Look I know they are brothers. I had to do a double take, as Jordan gains size he looks more and more like Brad. If he can give us production similar to Brad's freshman year we will be golden.

    Because of the talent on the team, he likely won't get the big minutes, but I totally believe he will be better than Brad was as a freshman.

    We are going to have three four star recruits coming off the bench. Wow!

    Glad to see the guys at the CH at VCU.

    I have a feeling Jordan won't be hurting for minutes.

    I think that's a tall order. As you state, he wont get the minutes. Brad started every game, played 29 plus minutes averaged 7.4 per game shot 48 percent from floor and 43 percent from 3, averaged 3.5 rebound, and about a steal a game. Plus Brad was a pretty good defender and hit a few big shots that resulted in wins. He was 3rd in assists, 4th in scoring and rebounding, and steals, 1st in 3 point % and 3rd in 3 point makes.

    If Jordan is better than that whoa. Again, I just dont see him getting the minutes or shots to match exceed Brad.

    As good a freshman year as Melvin had even he didnt match Brad in terms of stats or on court play. What Brad did with the team he was on is phenomenal. Remember Brad played with Larry, Maynor, Rozzell, Joey, Ed, TJ Gywnn, Kearse, Kiril.

    Man- It's crazy isn't it? I mean...... totally nutz. We are freakin' loaded, with the reloading coming in waves these days. I do not ever remember a VCU team this loaded- top to bottom. And a handful of 4* guys coming off the bench. Wow. Unbelievable!

    He is probably healthy by BMI standards. I am 6'3 and they want me to be 185. I am 203 and on their scale I border on overweight. People always ask me how are you so skinny yet live so fat?

    He certainly won't get the minutes, Brad's freshman year he averaged more minutes than anyone on our team last year. We don't play that style anymore. That said Jordan will play extended minutes, my guess is 17-20. this is plenty of time to put him in the 7-9 point range if he is efficient. That is all we need.
