As an aside, so should I post the picture of 16 (or 17) year old me with Valderrama?
Yes. And then I'll go back to the pissing match between Jaffie and sjhawk in the other thread.

And the article you posted is a nice counterpoint.
Let's keep some perspective here.
I know paulxu. I just quoted you to let you know that he has a daughter since you thought he had a son. Anyway, I understand the vitriol towards Pav and some VCU fans but as far as his parenting goes he loves his daughter.

New games today. Go Rhody! Go Dayton!

I think these two opinions sum it up pretty well. I thought we had a legitimate shot against SMC, but wasn't extremely confident going into it. They are a good team and probably deserved to be a higher seed. This game was a lot like the championship game against Rhode Island...VCU gets down big early, makes a 2nd half run to get close, but can't get over the hump. Poor shot selection and rushed offensive possessions were the biggest problem last night. And as AA said, this team had so many flaws this year on the offensive end, it's not surprising.

I know the offseason just started for us, but I am really curious and excited about next year's team. I had pegged this year and next as more-or-less transition years. This year went better than expected. Next year with no proven shooters on the team (instead of just one this year) coupled with the freshmen we have coming in and the youth on the team (4 fresh, 5 sophs), VCU could look very different.

It's like Elvis in reverse. Rumors of his demise, evidence of his physicality.

Re: NCAA Tournament: Dayton, Rhody & VCU

What happened last night we saw a lot this year...slow starts and digging ourselves into a hole. Most of those holes we were able to overcome, but last night was too much. Plus, SM is good; those boys can shoot lights out on any given night, as they have proven all year, so kudos to them.

Up yours. It wasn't a pissing match.

I was trying to clarify my original statement and I realized too late that I fell in to sjhawk's trap. When Oliver Purnell was thrown in to the discussion, I knew it was time to concede.

Re: NCAA Tournament: Dayton, Rhody & VCU

All week in Richmond, we heard how St. Mary's couldn't keep up with Gonzaga and how they were going to be easy pickings for an athletic team like VCU. This conveniently ignored the fact that Gonzaga is the best freaking team in the nation and has a very good chance of winning the whole tournament. They make almost everyone look slow and silly.

Frankly, VCU performed better than I expected last night, given that they faced a team that went 30-1 against all other opponents and given that VCU had beaten exactly two top-100 RPI teams away from the Siegel Center all year (Richmond and Bona).

Re: NCAA Tournament: Dayton, Rhody & VCU

Good season for VCU. That was a crap matchup, but those Rams showed their grit. Late in the first half I was just trying to figure how they would make it respectable, but VCU damn near came all the way back in the end.

The problem was the first video made her look much younger than she is. That is why his handling of her made him look incredibly careless.

Morgan thinks Pav is beautiful? I need to get a kid...

And I want to see Josh Gad play Pav in a Black Comedy spoof called Bad Dads.

In the movie (not last night), The dad brings an infant to a basketball game to share the experience. But as soon as the action starts he forgets about the child and starts beating its head on the seat beside him to the rhythm of Let's go VCU.

I can remember being at a CAA championship game. My friend who was the AD at JMU gave me great tickets but I was in the middle of ODU family members and fans behind their bench. Frank Hassell's girlfriend was flinging their infant around when the game got close. It was wild. My son just gets bored and wants to play Madden or NBA Jam on my iPhone.

Re: NCAA Tournament: Dayton, Rhody & VCU

Hey almost an hour until Rhody laces them up! You know they have to be excited. 1999 was a party for sure but nothing like the clock ticking to zero....oops out of time!
Good luck Rhody!
