DL: Friends, wherever you are, we'd like to welcome you to the second installment of the Red Line Lounge! It's early Monday morning, and hopefully you've filled your belly with a fantastic breakfast of your choosing. I'm happy to report I've done the same... a 5-Hour Energy, some apple juice, and mini muffins. Kyle, how 'bout you?

KW: Well, Damon, there's heaven, and then there's a Starbucks in Tallahassee. How was your weekend?

DL: My weekend took me outside of our lovely Capital, to a city which will remain nameless at this time, but I'm happy to report that I was able to watch this week's MMBOW (announced tomorrow) in person...and he didn't disappoint. Let's get to topic #1...all those RLUs this weekend! Who stood out?

KW: Hmmm... who could that Baller be? It was indeed a great three days for the Other 24, with no fewer than 14 Red Line Upsets. There were a lot of great and heroic performances, but I think we have to start with VCU's 82-69 win over Oklahoma. To beat your old coach on your own floor is really special.

DL: Yes...that was a big one, for sure. Kudos to Mr. Capel for scheduling that game in the first place, and going into Richmond to play it.

KW: Yeah, it was part of the contractual thing that allowed him to leave -- he had to come back to the Siegel Center and play VCU. Every mid-major school is going to be writing that into their coaching contracts now.

DL: I have to admit, I was a little surprised to see VCU bounce back so quickly after losing a semi-head scratcher at Western Michigan. But I suppose when you've got a guy like Larry Sanders on your roster, bouncing back is a little easier to do. Speaking of the CAA... George Mason got a RLU this weekend over Indiana down in San Juan. This, of course, coming after Boston U. put one on the Hoos'. Who knew the Hoosiers would be so yielding? Really can't thank them enough.
