Here is the article that Wayne said he would forward when I was talking to him.
Seems like Ed is still vague regarding the stadium location in the article. He definitely did not commit to the stadium being constructed on the opposite side of Hermitage Road.

The other thing that I find strange is why is John O'Connor writing an article about the VCU Athletics Village versus Wayne Epps? Wayne is the VCU beat writer and should be closer to the project than O'Connor.

The R-TD is furloughing staff for periods of time so Wayne forwarded the information.

#8 in the "biggest losers" category
8) VCU – Mike Rhoades lost big man Marcus Santos-Silva, his leading scorer and rebounder, to Texas Tech. Santos-Silva averaged 12.8 points and 8.9 boards this past season.
Interesting list...8 of the 12 listed are in the mid-major or lower category.....article specifically mentions Ivy and MAAC being gutted in particular...

Of the Majors on the list...GTown and St Johns have been a mess more often than not of late, Florida and Purdue should bounce back quickly.

and no...not all publicity is good.
social unrest...killer virus...down year for VCU hoops (or maybe no year)...
