VCU’S FUTURE’S BRIGHT, SO WE’RE GIVING AWAY SHADES If you had your choice to play any kid on the playground one-on-one, who are you going to pick? Are you going to zero in on some diminutive kid with a bad haircut and a busted jumper, or are you going to body up to future All-American and genetic lottery winner Johnny Riflearm? Your choice […]
‘CAN WE BE PLAYING ANYMORE GAMES RIGHT NOW?’ I?m no Taylor Swift fan, but, she can be an awfully likable person sometimes. I enjoyed the heck out of ?Friends? during its 10-year run, and seeing Lisa Kudrow sing ?Smelly Cat?, the most memorable song in the career of Kudrow?s ?Friends? character, eccentric coffee house singer Phoebe Buffay, with Swift, the burgeoning pop megastar, did spark my […]
GREEN LIGHT FOR THE BLACK AND GOLD Aaaaaand we?re underway. I wish college soccer would take a page out of hockey?s playbook. I?d love to see the sport adopt a red lamp and fog horn atop the goals for when teams score. That way, when the Rams blast one into the back of the net, you?d hear about it on Main Street. […]
I WENT BACK TO THE STU…AND MY SUMMER WAS GONE According to the Gregorian Calendar and the autumnal equinox, the first day of fall is Sept. 23. But Pope Gregory XIII ? we all called him ?Thirteen? back then ? never played college soccer. The first day of fall, according to the Athletician (made up word alert!) Calendar is Aug. 21. The VCU Women?s Soccer […]

BALL LOOKS TO RECAPTURE SPIRIT OF ’13 AT U.S. AMATEUR CHAMPIONSHIP RICHMOND, Va. ? The U.S. Amateur Championship is the country?s oldest championship and one of its most prestigious. VCU rising senior Adam Ball (Richmond, Va.) is set to play in his fourth U.S. Amateur, but the feeling of competing in the revered event has not faded with time. ?Cannot wait. You have no idea. I […]
BRIANTE WEBER EYES A NEW BEGINNING Sometimes we don’t know how good we have it. Briante Weber flew around the basketball court in a VCU uniform for nearly four years, displaying a unique combination of speed, guile, explosiveness and enthusiasm I doubt we’ll ever see again. As much as we cheered his greatness, it was difficult to embrace it to the […]
WHAT’S BREWING FOR GRAHAM, DYKSTRA? VCU Athletics’ Mike Voyack had an opportunity to catch up with Treveon Graham recently, which isn’t easy, considering how well Graham moves for a man of his size. No matter, Voyack, camera in tow, wrangled Graham for an interview to update us on his pro prospects. Graham, you’ll remember, is coming off a solid performance […]
PROGRESS REPORT: VCU BASKETBALL DEVELOPMENT CENTER We recently had an opportunity to check on the progress of the VCU Basketball Development Center (yes, we’re trending away from “practice facility”). Have a look around.Filed under: Men's Basketball, Women's Basketball Tagged: Havoc, VCU Basketball Development Center, VCU Basketball Practice Facility
CATCHING UP WITH VCU GLOBETROTTER AND OLYMPIAN QUANITRA HOLLINGSWORTH VCU made waves in 2004 when it signed an unknown 15-year-old from Chesapeake, Virginia named Quanitra Hollingsworth. The 6-foot-5 center, who skipped two grades in middle school, made her debut for the Rams a year later as the nation?s youngest player. She became more than a fascination. Hollingsworth led VCU to its first NCAA Tournament […]
