Don't pelt me with rocks and garbage--I admit up front this is a tease until Tuesday morning...(bonus points for naming the rocks and garbage reference).

A feature on Shaka Smart will be live on http://www.vasportsnow.com tomorrow morning. Lots of good stuff, if I may say, on Shaka. Less Xs and Os and more who he is. I found him to be ridiculously impressive, but you judge.

Again: http://www.vasportsnow.com
 
I am cool with this but at least throw us a bone or something...like "did you know that Shaka _________ ..."
 
well, it's the morning 8-) GREAT article...I'm becoming increasingly tempted to subscribe...
 
Thanks, Deuce!
GIVE IN to the temptation!
Give in!
We would appreciate it greatly. And it is only 20 bucks.

Mr. Litos did a terrific job with that profile.
 
If that is the content we can expect then I am hooked.

Great read…keep it coming
 
GREAT article. Keep em coming
 
Well, hopefully we won't have to write about a new coach anytime soon.
But those are the types of articles we hope to be able to provide regularly. We don't have the space restrictions of a newspaper, so we can go long when we feel like going long. And we can do short updates whenever we feel like doing them.
We're talking now about how we're going to handle game coverage for both football and basketball. It will be different and it will be fun.
 
MJHRVA - how much recruiting info do you anticipate covering. To me that's the single biggest void in VCU sports coverage in Richmond.
 
Chill - good question. Recruiting is a tough nut to crack, which is why the specialty sites do so well with it. They can concentrate on only that. To do it right takes a great network and a lot of legwork.
I won't lie. Initially, we won't do as much. As we grow and get to full staff with assigned beat writers, those writers will be able to include recruiting stuff as part of their coverage area. How soon will be get there? REAL soon, I hope.
 
MJHRVA - that's understandable.

Do you think you'll be able to post more extensive info about a recruit after they commit versus the cut and paste from rivals & scout we currently get from the T-D?

Lord I hope.

I mean, we'll still use some of that stuff. They do it full time. But when I covered recruiting (the little bit we did) at the TD, we at least made an effort to call the athlete and coach and get some of our own stuff.
