EVERYBODY IN THE POOL, SUMMER’S GONE Summer’s gone. I’m not concerned with the technical definition of the season. We’ve all been conditioned to mentally terminate the summer once school resumes. I still do that today because when fall sports kick back online every August, it’s go time in the office. That day is today. We got a little preview last week with women’s […]
TROPHY CHASING TAKES ON GREATER IMPORTANCE FOR VCU SOCCER IN ’14 In four seasons under the guidance of Coach Dave Giffard, the VCU Men’s Soccer program has transformed from an also-ran into a juggernaut. For all the progress made, there are a couple of levels of success that have been elusive. Following an 11-8-2 mark in 2013, the Rams aim to take the next step as a […]
THE RISE OF SHAKAVISION: VCU BASKETBALL SCHEDULE RELEASED Shaka Smart’s “Havoc” is must-see TV. That’s what the networks are saying, it seems. The full VCU Men’s Basketball schedule was released Wednesday. We’ve known the non-conference slate for weeks and the home/away A-10 match-ups for months, so this was really about filling dates and setting DVRs. In case you were stuck in a mid-afternoon […]
COME TOGETHER; RAMS AIM TO CHALLENGE A-10 AGAIN WITH OLD AND NEW Year One of Jody Rogers’ tenure as VCU Volleyball coach was wildly successful, as the Rams finished 26-8 and reached the Atlantic 10 Conference title match. But that’s not to say the Rams are satisfied. VCU is still chasing its first conference crown and NCAA bid since 2005, and this year, the Rams will do […]
DETAILS AND DIRTY WORK; RAMS AIM TO BUILD ON 2013 CAMPAIGN In many ways, the 2013 season was a “getting-to-know-you” kind of campaign for the VCU Women’s Soccer team. After an 8-8-3 season under first-year Coach Lindsay Vanderspiegel, the Rams now have a clear understanding of where they’re headed. This season, led by All-Conference players Emma Kruse and Casey Boyer, VCU wants everybody else to know what […]
WE WERE MERELY FRESHMEN…AN OPEN LETTER Hey freshmen, We?ve probably never met, but I hope you?ll soon recount to me how you learned to play the bassoon or that time you saved a gaggle of puppies from a burning building. For lack of a better term, I?m the features writer here. For the last five years, I?ve been scribbling stories about […]
QUICK SCHEDULE METRICS THAT I BORROWED VCU released its full non-conference schedule this morning and it’s as we suspected, it’s pretty darn loaded. Games with Tennessee, Villanova, Cincinnati, Virginia, as well as some other under-the-radar giant killers like Belmont, Toledo and Cleveland State line line a really solid slate: Thanks to the Internet and the number of VCU fans who love […]
LEGENDS OF THE FALL; SCHEDULE TAKES SHAPE AS VILLANOVA DATE REVEALED The full Legends Classic bracket was released this morning, revealing a VCU-Villanova matchup on Nov. 24 at Barclays Center. From there, it’s either Oregon or Michigan on Nov. 25. No matter what, VCU was going to get two great, tough games out of this trio, but Villanova might represent the biggest challenge in the field. […]
SEAL SEASON: WOMEN’S HOOPS First, Shaka Smart convinced a whole campus that “Havoc” was the IT brand in college hoops. Now, his influence is changing the way other VCU programs prepare for their seasons. The Rams have made headlines the last three years by using SEAL Team PT to ready themselves for the rigors of one of college basketballs’ […]
VCU HOOPS CHECK-UP IN TWO PHOTOS VCU Men’s Basketball released its 2014-15 uniform set today. If they kicked the ball on the ground, they’d call these kits for reasons nobody understands. But they don’t, so they’re uniforms. Notice the return of the gray alternate, as well a new twist on the traditional VCU road uni we’ll call, “The Pleasantville. Also today, […]
