My condolences on that early charge circle foul on Bones. Totally changed the game. You're clearly an NCAA team. Reek Havoc on as many teams as you can.


This is very weird for me.... like, Regular Season and Tourney champs... winning when we're the top seed? I feel so much more comfortable in an underdog role.

I don't care how much money it costs to keep Mark Schmidt at Bonaventure. This fan base can make it happen. Turning us from A-10 underdogs to the most consistent program in the A-10?????! We are a Tulsa Screw Job and a buzzer-beater away from 4 bids in 5 tourneys, and everyone on this team is a Junior or younger.

We need a run in the dance this year. 1 to 2+ wins, minimum. Because with everyone coming back, this is a PROGRAM ELEVATING OPPORTUNITY. We make the second weekend, we're preseason ranked next year, and getting a fuckload of pub.

That was a frustrating game for many reasons, but congratulations to Schmidt, the Bonnies, and fans. That was a great game plan and it was executed incredibly well.

I have a bad feeling VCU is going to be one of the first four teams. But if you told me going into the season that would happen, I would have taken it in a heartbeat.

As nervous as I get watching these games, I have no earthly idea why I want them in the tournament in the first place.

And I was even pretty confident going into this one. Then the ball goes up, and I'm a mess.

Thanks AA! As you know, we can't count on Big E for Bonnies porn.
It was hard for me to post. Ha! Heck, I was disappointed in the outcome but what a season for my VCU Rams. Still going...🤞

And we can officially reunite again until January!

VCU deserves like a 7 seed. But the last time VCU was a First Four team.... where'd they end up?

They'll be fine. Let's fucking go Rams. Fuck up everyone in your path until it's Round 4 with the Bonnies.

What's weird is that in hindsight, I experience the other A-10 team games more than the Bonnies games. Not to sound like Bill Walton, but Bona games make me transcend space and time, while the A-10 games are the most rooted memories I have.

I remember every single play of URI-Oklahoma in 2018, and zero plays of Bona-UCLA, or Bona-Florida. I remember everything about WATCHING those games, and nothing detailed about the games. And that's nothing to do with alcohol, I don't like being drunk for Bonnies games. I take the edge off after with them.

Or like, in 2016, I literally had a 5-hour blackout period after Selection Sunday. I was on the phone with my college roommate at 3:30 PT, and what felt like 30 minutes later, his wife was like "you've been on the phone for 6 hours." Total PTSD. My only memory of the 2016 NCAA Tourney is like 5 bad calls in the Saint Joe's Oregon and VCU Oklahoma games.

OK, I'm going to say it, and I will regret it for the rest of my short, remaining life, but Dayton's a pretty good college basketball town.

Fact Checker and you know who, notwithstanding. I even love tman.

Were you there will Bill?
Also, I know tman, and I'm not sure about your town reading. Then again, I'm considering the long trek.
You may be dehydrated.

VCU got a 10 seed against 7 seeded Oregon. Bona might get shunned. Oh wait...;)
