The GW website shows the status as "not yet rescheduled". Take it for what it is worth...Spot on Jive, but instead, we cant even seem to take our hands off our dicks long enough to push the A10 into scheduling a makeup game, in a city we're already going to, so dream big I guess.
I know it wasn't an option this year, but Richmond game should be in Rochester in a situation like this.Since I'm not being productive at work today, I want to get pre-MAD about something.
Senior Night needs to be fixed and it needs to be a game where the students are in attendance. End of story. This is such an easy win for the athletics department yet every year senior night is during spring break for the students. Tickets are not for sale for this game yet but I would bet they are going to try to sell either the sideline student section seats or the baseline seats or both and that is just wrong. Seniors, in particular these Seniors should have their peers in attendance for senior night.
If you think senior night has to be a weekend (probably should be) then the Duqesne game was the game to have it and 80s weekend should be the Richmond game. In fact i would argue that 80s weekend since it is such a big event should always be a game when students aren't on campus.
Set up the contingency planning now, but the only way the league should play that game is if it's going to change who gets the double bye and at this point that's unknown.
This comes down to the rivalry between Academics and Athletics. The Academics don't want to change the schedule, especially not just for the sports calendar. And AFAIK athletics has never made a big push to get the change made.I have always wondered why they dont move break a week farther into March. Then students can attend A10's and not miss classes and you avoid this situation where we dont have our students for Sr night and a huge late home game. I am sure the administration has their reasons but lets face it, basketball is our biggest recruiting tool so we should do what we can to maximize it.
Thinking that a RC insert and sniff unwashed self test location might be the decrepit shithouse located directly across from the Post Office. Activities could then move to the adjacent corridor where a rally would be held for funding to rehab said decrepit shithouse.Quick test for Covid...
Insert fingah and sniff unwashed. If fingah doesn't smell like shit you have Covid. If fingah smells like shit you don't.
Suggest that all attendees self test prior to game.
Spot on with what you said.Last night was ugly. With all there was at work I'd say I'm probably chalking 65% to circumstance, 35% concerned.
What was a concern was the fact it took a seemingly impossible 14 minutes to reach double digits. It got me thinking about how truly awful we have been scoring away from home, so i dove into it. Considering NCAAT hopes now ride on 3 wins in 3 days away from the RC, this is eye opening to me.
-At home we are 34.5 % from 3 and 48.5 % overall; away from home that is 29/41.5; true road games thats 27/41.5
-At home we score 78 PPG, Overall 70 ppg, away from home 63 PPG, true road games 61 PPG
-Clemson we shot uncharacteristically well from 3 at 50%. We are a frightening 26% from 3 away from home outside of that game
-LaSalle we scored 80, we failed to eclipse 70 in any of our remaining true road games- 59 PPG in true road games when you factor out that aberration
-You would be fair to ask if the cupcake competition on OOC at home inflated those numbers, but they didnt. Overall FG % in conference vs overall is almost identical; we actually have shot 1 % better from 3 in conference at home vs overall at home
The fact these struggles away from home is being had by a group of seniors is concerning, but that's a problem that I guess will soon be fixed on its own. Res and X are the resident stat heads here, so maybe they'll tell me I'm a moron. But this simpleton sees this as cause for concern.
By no means am I giving up hope. If anything I just hope it means, for the love of God, we emphasize guys who can flat out score for some of our remaining recruits.
Its also pretty clear we need a big next year. Cool is a fouling machine. Duro is a 0 offensively but I think with some reps he can be a serviceable big on defense. I was actually a little surprised by him last night, in a good way.
^^^I grew a new appreciation all around last night for what Shoon brings offensively, even if not scoring. When he's active offensively, defenses either account for him and open up space for others, or they dont account for him and we feed him with 5-6 dunks. VCU last night tightened on our drives very easily, and sagged off our bigs when they had the ball, because they knew they could. They got a lot more contested drives and closed off more cutting lanes because of it.
