I was not being serious when I jabbed him although I fully expect VCU to beat UMass at the Stu. They can then remember that VCU lost to a DII team and worry about the state of their program. Yeah, I was concerned when I was watching them lose to Queens University of Charlotte.The real game is this Friday so I will wait for that to decide if I am going to fret.

Re: Around the League

Michigan St and Syracuse lost exhibition games in recent years and both went on to have fine seasons.

LeMoyne
Yes. And Le Moyne (notice the La Salle-like space) didn't have the benefit of 7 guys from Philadelphia.

Anecdotal evidence. I bet some teams lost exhibition games and went on to have bad seasons too. It's not a reason to freak out, but if you expect your team to be really good and they lose, I think it's cause for a little bit of concern.

How is that anecdotal? Do you just repeat buzz words and hope they are right? We are talking about VCU, a good team by all accounts. One that people think will be an NCAA tournament team. Duquesne lost and they probably stink anyway. The fact that bad teams also lose games is irrelevant. If you are a good team, you are a good team and shouldnt worry. That Syracuse team ended up #1 in the country for a stretch and got a 1 seed with a 28-4 record. That's not anecdotal, that is fact.

Syracuse & Michigan St. being good teams that lost exhibition games is not a reason for people to be unconcerned with VCU losing an exhibition game.

I'm not seeing any scalding hot takes from the Zagoria/Rothstein types, so this kid must not have a lot of "talent".

Wade's Media Minutes press conference is not pumping sunshine. I might have to become a Rhody fan since they are in the Top 20 or go with the future talent of UMass.
