That is what it appears to be. Their fans want to make Buck into a pothead though. Bet when it all comes out in the wash it is because he asked for his release and talked to a couple of school reps while they withheld his release. Having Buck transfer after Fore left would have been a horrible look for Mooney so he called his fixer. Betcha.

Re: 2018-2019 Richmond Spiders

It could be, but I can’t blame UR for dismissing him if he was communicating with other programs prior to his release. It would be nice if coaches would start calling each other out if they’re sure tampering is happening.

Edit: I highly doubt weed is the source of Buckingham’s dismissal. Positive tests happen A LOT at schools all over the country, but they rarely result in something this serious. It’s usually handled in-house.

Reefer should be sold at the concession stands during games.

Re: 2018-2019 Richmond Spiders

I read the article in the Richmond Times Dispatch this morning. I still do not understand dismissing the young man even if he failed a drug test or missed some classes. Why not just allow him to transfer instead of basically giving him a shady record?

That is the part Iím struggling with, too. There has to be something more substantial behind the scenes; if I had to bet, it would be on the aforementioned suspicion of tampering.

But if that is the case why not grant his release? As far as I can tell he asked for his release several weeks ago.

Re: 2018-2019 Richmond Spiders

I guess it’s not for us to understand. He apparently violated one or more of Richmond’s athletic department policies. We can speculate all we want about that, but breaking the rules is breaking the rules.

Not surpringly, the only such rule the Times Dispatch article mentions is the one related to marijuana and other drugs. Why mention that one and none of the others? I guess the reporter likes to speculate, as well.

Re: 2018-2019 Richmond Spiders

This is all very confusing. Also, disappointing, as I thought the team would be markedly better with a year of experience. Now losing Fore and Buckingham, looks like treading water.

Something strange must have happened, as he was practicing and they had a nice video of him on the home site (supposedly after he'd asked to transfer.) At least they've taken that down.

If he is sent packing this way, does it allow him to enroll in another A10 school?

He wasn't dismissed for failing a single drug test, he repeatedly failed tests.

Repeated? I heard two. I also heard that he asked for his release. It was held up and when he pushed to move with his request they used his past transgressions as a way to keep him in house. It was a You stay it will be fine but if not you will be dismissed kind of thing. I know the term for this. I also trust the source. De'monte likes ganja. I wonder if they plan to do it this way with all of their athletes. If so expect a a bunch of dismissals.

My texts came from a AAU coach and a writer. Both matched what was akin to blackmail. They better hope he did not get/save any texts or emails. Bet momma Buck is about to blow this up soon.

Well that would be a crime committed by Richmond's athletic department (extortion). Buck should sue and get his eligibility back next semester at a new school if this is the case.
