I did miss that one, but the lead here is that the kid initially wanted his release. That usually doesn't end well. If Buckingham and/or Sherod leave(s) UR, Mooney's seat would have to be scorching, no?

Re: 2018-2019 Richmond Spiders

Is it just me? During the down seasons, we are really into monitoring, guessing and discussing the temperature of a coach's butt. That has to be a highly specialized fetish, and there is probably a website for that too.

Re: 2018-2019 Richmond Spiders

I get a text once or twice a week with rumors and information from a AAU coach. Sunday I got a text and at the tail end of some VCU news he said this: Also, Buck is asking for his release from U of R which will likely hit the public within a week. Coach Mooney is asking him to think more about the release.

Those were his exact words. I conveyed them to urmite via a private message before the ESPN tweet. urmite is busy doing tax work so he cannot be bothered. Ha!

Disappointing to say the least.

Re: 2018-2019 Richmond Spiders

Very strange timing. What happened between his request for a release and this news? This isn't a "You can't fire me... I QUIT!" situation from Mooney, is it?

And here I thought it was a PM...
Not so private anymore...

Anyway, if you were dismissed from the team, do you still need a release to change schools? I assume so and I assume you would get it.

My guess is that the violation is that he was talking to other schools. Dismissing him now takes off any restriction of movement. I would also be worried about how they dealt with this situation because if Mooney played hardball it is going to get out. From what I heard he asked out last week. They made him wait and maybe he talked to other coaches. Just a guess.

Maybe they asked him to refrain from whatever got him the in season suspension, and he decided to ask for his release instead, so they took that as a no to their "cease and desist" request? Just a guess...

Maybe so but let's hash this out. By the way, I like Buck and watched him play for Henrico High. I know this is soul crushing for fans. That being said, I heard on Sunday that he asked to be released. He was told to think about it. Now he is being dismissed for breaking the rules of the athletic dept's policy. Seems fishy. No? Seems like they did not like him talking. Then the ESPN information leaked after we discussed the situation. This seems like they did not want to grant him the release because he was talking. Or was it to save face after Fore left? Either way it is crushing for the program and Buckingham.

Another thing. If Buck was causing trouble why would the dept put out videos and promotional materials out after I heard he asked for his release? Then they dismissed him. Very strange.

Re: 2018-2019 Richmond Spiders

Can we start speculating that Hurley was involved and he’s transferring to UConn?

Seems like this is coming from the AD not Mooney. I really doubt this has to do with him asking for a release, I have heard this was due to a recurring issue (it got him a 1 game suspension last season).

Hah! We can't let you guys have all the drama, now can we?

Mooney beat VCU twice this year. That's normally good for a 5 year extension.
