The Decline of VCU Basketball
so, Wade's had this team now for 2 years...

milked the Shaka guys as best he could into two NCAA appearances with 0 wins.

now he's losing three starters to graduation.

With this, will FecesU fade back away post-Shaka to the where we and GMU are?

At least we have football.

Thought about that. We shall see. Another phenomenon is how poorly their ex-coaches do when they move on to power conferences.

Indeed; starting with JD Barnett who, after 2 good years at Tulsa, faded into oblivion.

Capel did fine at Oklahoma when Blake Griffin was there. Lon Kruger was good when Buddy Hield was there, then they went down the crapper this season. I think Capel will be a fine D1 head coach, though I'm not sold on him being the alleged heir apparent at Duke.

Shaka had a good year last season and a **** one this season. He got Matt Coleman, so I expect they'll be markedly better in 2017-18.

Anthony Grant never got over the hump there but in fairness Alabama is pretty spotty (Avery Johnson has led the Tide to a pair of first-round NIT losses).

Maybe the Siegel Center was built on an old Indian burialground?

Not exactly the same subject as VCU, but Keatts just accepted the NC State job.

VCU overachieved this year. They did better than the sum of the parts. No true PG, can't shoot, cox is an unskilled big man, Williams is a train wreck, Brooks and Burgess never lived up to the hype - can't wait to see what happens next. Keats had nothing coming back like Wade.....

Feces should've fallen to us this year, and we aren't very good.

Oh well, back to earth Rams!

So I've been a little behind on college basketball this year... But Shaka found a way to f*** us again!
