LEARNING WILL WADE – MEDIA ROUNDUP It was a whirlwind first day for new VCU Head Men’s Basketball Coach Will Wade. He completed the media car wash that included a throng at his press conference, then his own coaches show, plus in-studio appearances at other locations. He was truly a man about town. What did we learn on day one? Well, […]
WADE’S WILL: A LITTLE CHAOS, A LITTLE HAVOC RICHMOND, Va. ? Amid one of the most tumultuous weeks in VCU Basketball in some time, Will Wade restored order with a declaration of Havoc. ?Havoc still lives here!?

WILL WADE PRESSER HIGHLIGHTS Say hello to the 11th coach in VCU Men’s Basketball history, Will Wade. Great turnout at the Siegel Center today for Wade’s introductory press conference. There were somewhere around 1,200 in attendance, and it was more of a celebratory atmosphere than anything else. But that’s what we’ve come to expect out of this fan base. […]

A LASTING IMPRESSION ?Who the hell is Shaka Smart?? I asked. This was back in the wild days of 2009, when we talked about basketball in ?94 feet, both ways? terms and Eric Maynor?s Duke Dagger was still freshly firing through our synapses. I was conversing with Jeremy Shyatt, VCU?s then-director of basketball operations. Chaka? Shaky? Shaka Smart? […]
HEY, WHATEVER WORKS, RIGHT? Baseball players are a special breed. I think even they would tell you that. Long seasons, rain delays, bus trips. These guys have a lot of time on their hands to get creative. They also tend to be superstitious, as anyone who saw Nomar Garciaparra’s at-bats will attest. With that in mind, VCU Baseball has a […]
UVA ON TAP: ‘HATS…KEEP BATS WARM’ RICHMOND, Va. – VCU may be facing 14th-ranked Virginia at an opportune time. The Rams are hitting the baseball at an impressive rate, a trend they hope continues deep into Tuesday evening. Senior shortstop Vimael Machin has led the way. Machin, who was named Atlantic 10 Conference Player of the Week on Monday, is in […]
EVER-READY LEES SLOTTED FOR COMEBACK SEASON RICHMOND, Va. ? It doesn?t take long for Matt Lees to go from bullpen observer to shutdown reliever. The senior lefty says it requires a little more than a dozen warm-up tosses before he?s game-ready. The routine, which he?s compressed over the years, has served him well. No one has made more appearances out of […]

I was 11, and an aspiring third baseman for Luciano?s of the Austintown Little League ? we didn?t have fancy team names; we just slapped the font of whatever funeral home or local eatery ponied up 100 bucks to buy the uniforms on the jersey. My […]
PUT A BOW ON IT Sorry for the dearth of correspondence since Portland. I promised I?d return to comment on the season that was, but had some family stuff to address. I?m back now, and in my stead, I see that Mike Litos, as he often does, has succinctly summed up many of my own feelings on the 2014-15 season and […]
