Really like Richmond when we use to visit. Fan, Cary St., etc. and UR's campus is spectacular. North Pole in Crozier apparently closed...that's a real bummer.
I honestly see no conflict. Your daughter, the good one, has great taste in men.

I think you'll see exactly how pumped tonight. There will be plenty of Gold in the Siegel Center West tonight!

I heard UR was playing artificial crowd noise during their practices this week. That is kind of said if true. Its a home game!

Ya, the Spiders don't have a lot of experience dealing with the sounds of flatulence and belching...need to steel their nerves to keep from laughing during crucial points in the game.

I understand they've been pumping in some of the smells too so they don't get too nauseated tonight. I feel for our fans who won't have any resistance built up to it.

From UR's beat writer:

To prepare for the noise at the full Robins Center (9,071) tonight vs. VCU, UR practiced with amplified crowd noise blaring this week.
There looks to be a sizeable VCU contingent at the game. Per a VCU AD rep at our coaches show last night. The VCU ticket office sold over 900 tickets. That doesn't include a large number of VCU fans who ordered directly from UR either early online or in person at the UR ticket office.

Should be interesting to see the crowd make-up and how that might affect the atmosphere.

VCU has won 9 of the last 11 meetings and won by 22 at home last year.

Here are some pre-game video clips from VCU:

It may just be me, but that VCU fan guy on that video is a little strange. I don't think that's havoc.

Re: Game Thread: #19 VCU @ Richmond (Thursday 1/24/13)

LOL, I agree that is not havoc, and yes he does come across very strangely in that video.

Yes, for those of you who are unfamiliar with the UR-VCU rivalry, UR fans like to flaunt their academic and economical superiority over us commoners as much as we like to flaunt our basketball superiority.

This rivalry lives up to all the stereotypes of a private-public city rivalry, or at least our fans try to honor them during the weeks that we play. I haven't laughed as hard at both boards as I have this week in a long time. Great stuff on both sides.

The joke is mainly on those who take the other side seriously, and that's very evident from some of the members of both fan bases.

Re: Game Thread: #19 VCU @ Richmond (Thursday 1/24/13)

VCU is a 9 point favorite on the road. I took UR last year and regretted it. So no touch on this one. The question is can Richmond follow up their impressive performance against Charlotte into tonight's game. If they can they've got a shot.

Re: Game Thread: #19 VCU @ Richmond (Thursday 1/24/13)

The game is being called exactly the way it has to be for us not to be able to play the way we want to. Very tight and everything is being called.

Richmond can very easily win this game if we keep playing like this, they have imposed their pace. Very slow, deliberate, and clunky. Richmond is also executing well and Graham, Brandenberg, and Reddic are all in foul trouble. Perfect storm.

Should be interesting to see how our guys respond.

Re: Game Thread: #19 VCU @ Richmond (Thursday 1/24/13)

32-29 UR at the half.

Hard to be too upset considering Treveon Graham didn't play much and hasn't scored yet and Juvonte Reddic picked up 3 fouls. UR shot 52% and only turned the ball over 6 times. Doing a great job of setting their tempo and pace.

We play this way in the second half and we will lose. Hopefully we are making adjustments. Lots of different looks on D from Chris Mooney and our guys were a little flustered.
