Well, I hope they haven't been recruiting Cayo for over a year. Since he played for us last season...


We just assumed that SBU recruits every Canadian while they are in HS.

They chose to make the player look like a bad actor instead of releasing him and wishing him well. During that decision making process when he was told to think about his release is when the shady stuff happened.
And you have inside information on the real circumstances? I know you think you're smart, but I suggest you start future speculation with a proviso. It'll help preserve your perceived persona.

I do. The same person told me that Ododa was leaving over a week before it was announced. He sent me a text saying Buckingham had asked to be released. This was at least a week before the dismissal was announced. After that he told me what happened. urmite can at least vouch for my timeline. Not sure why the swipe at me for stating what I was told. I certainly did not make it up.

Re: 2018-2019 Richmond Spiders

Yes, I believe AA is a part of the media and often has information before others including this time.

Knowledge of the motivations of the actions on both sides of this issue are more difficult to confirm and subject to speculation.

But why are we bringing this topic up again?

And no one mentioning this...

AA is really Richmond's SID, masquerading as a VCU supporter.

His wife got him the gig.

I just relayed what I heard. My friend knows the community and the information he provides me is always correct. Most of it is in regards to VCU but he threw the Buck asking for his release in with other stuff like Djonkam leaving and Gilmore coming back. After the dismissal he gave me the scoop. He knows Buck and his family. It is what it is. Buckingham is gone.

Information about actions is one thing.

Information about why an action takes place is another.

The latter is not always certain. Even if you heard from me why I took an action that doesn't make "the why" a fact. I have been known to be less than truthful. And sometimes I don't even understand myself.

Anyway roster "appears" set...

Yep. I agree that UR was not truthful about how it went down.

Re: 2018-2019 Richmond Spiders

Since we don't seem to have an OOC schedule, I'm going with "no news is good news."

Consider this a good news post.

Well if you want news...Here is some 2 week old news from our beat writer, who posted the Nostradamus-like predictions.

One of our incoming freshmen is making a short term transfer elsewhere.

Re: 2018-2019 Richmond Spiders

Not sure what's going on with the Spiders.
After 8-10 postings under "news" on the official website in May, June, and July...August has zero postings. It's like the school has forgotten about basketball.
In the newspaper, really the only thing of importance is that the school hasn't extended Mooney's contract for a year, so recruiting will be a little harder.

A couple more days and our OOC schedule should be released if last year's timing is any guide.

Re: 2018-2019 Richmond Spiders

Finally a story about basketball on the Spiders' website.
I'm amped up. Go there to read about the team and how they looked in their first practice.
What do I get? Pictures!
Maybe all the writers for Richmond sports took a powder with the Bona blog guys.
