Re: Donaldson slamming Rhody fan base on Twitter

Donaldson stated that he thinks crowds for URI should be bigger and do do several of us here. The 4549 for the LaSalle game was very disappointing on January 3. Looks like now with the winning streak extended that tickets are being bought up. Would not surprise me if ticket agencies don’t get involv...

Re: Week #11 - Games of Interest

Before the start of today's UConn-Villanova game, security at Hartford's XL Center confiscated a sign held by a fan that read FIRE OLLIE.

Imagine being Dayton and barely able to stay within 10 against us and then our 6th guard comes in and drops 9 straight on them. Unbelievable. Great game by Akele too, he made a lot of plays other than putting up 9. JT didn't even have to assert himself in the last 10 minutes. Should be conference p...

Re: Kevin MacNamara’s justification for not voting for Rhody

I gotta be honest, it’s odd for me on a site where the “fans” got behind a few posters, who in the last calendar year, called for a coaching change...yet think local people need to write flowery fluff pieces about the team.
