VCU fans were very complimentary of our team.
Not for nothing, Ryan Center > Siegal Center. If we had their band it wouldn't even be close, the arena is nice but kinda small-ish.


That's obvious on television. The VCU gym looks like a warehouse with bleachers against the walls.

I had thought "airplane hangar" during the game. One tier of seating is pretty weak.

No question. Their fans are great in terms of showing up, traveling, etc. Just the building itself makes me appreciate the Ryan even more. And to be fair, most buildings do.

Nope. Not allowed to say that URI has any good infrastructure that existed pre-2013.

New Rhody fans in the making...from one end of the country to the other...

Spent Thanksgiving with the family in Maine. My 9 year old nephew likes college hoops and we all watched Rhody/Seton Hall together. Didn't think that much of it, until my sister started texting me during the Duquesne game, when they were down by a lot (and I told her it would be fine) She said that, since Thanksgiving, he's been a URI follower...watches them whenever he can...records the games. He watched last night and was all excited about it. Funny how things get started sometimes...maybe his fandom carries through and he ends up going to URI...who knows... in any event, there is a clan of Rhody hoops followers up in Maine

Also have a friend in St. Pete, FL, where we used to live...that I have pulled onto the bandwagon over the last couple years. His kids went to FGCU and he was actually in town, made it to that game with us and I hear from him now during Rhody games as well.... 8-)

The guys must be feeling pretty good today. Back on campus for awhile after that two week stretch. Can't imagine how many students are yelling out at them.

I have a very good friend who lives in Boise, ID and is excited that we have a chance of landing there. Nice town and hey, it's free room and board for four+ days so I can't complain!!

No need. This is still the same good times. Uninterrupted and continuous.

In a true sign of the times there is a thread on the PC board about our teams performance that is 100% positive. Well Darth prob hasn’t been on their board today :) but even so not something you thought you would see. Speaks to the likability of this team and these kids. They still hate us (the fans)! Rightly so.

BAR, is this the free scout forum? I do occasionally lurk there, though probably not more than once a month. I certainly am not going to pay to see their forum.
