RE: Va Colleges Spending on Football & Basketball
I remember the 1984 game very well. We had a big lead in the second half and it was slipping away. I spent most of the last 10 minutes pacing out back near the concession stands.

I have a (probably made up) memory of David Bond being inserted into the game as a designated shooter. He never made an outside shot but got a huge offensive rebound and put it back it. I always thought that bucket, every bit as much as Coval's, won the game for us.

And that is why I appreciate what Shaver is trying to do: develop a tough team that goes inside as much as possible rather than a soft one that relies totally on 3s.

Back to the original theme of this thread, I think I have decided to discontinue my unrestricted donations to the Tribe Club and give it all with a basketball designation. I know it doesn't make a difference (the money will be moved around as has been pointed out before).

It's just that the school is not being honest with me. I was giving some money to support the overall athletic program and other money to support my passion for basketball. If I give it all to basketball the reporting will show an increase in basketball contributions, even if funding for the program does not go up.

1984--Mr. Ribe was in law school there. I was home in little 'ol Clifton Forge planning our wedding. I have a vague memory of hearing scratchy parts of that game on the radio? Maybe I was able to pick up a weak signal out of Richmond. But, I clearly remember Mr. Ribe calling me after that game very excited. We did rock the hall back then.

Ran into both Bruce & Barry Parkhill today while they were playing golf at Kings Creek Country Club in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. Incredibly cordial and seemed really pleased that I remembered both them and there contributions to W&M basketball. Always fun to run into anyone with Tribe connections.

Recently announced, a few who didn't get the memo on hosting ACC opponents this upcoming season:
Coastal Carolina is hosting Wake Forest.
Davidson is the host team vs UNC in Charlotte.

Good for Coastal.

First, they hosted the CBI championship game #1 a few months ago; now they're hosting Wake! Obviously, a direct correlation!

Also helps that they're moving up to the Sun Belt. They have a nice, albeit small, arena

How about another?

Mason announced today they will be hosting Big 10 member, Penn State. This is part two of a home/home contract.

I learned recently that UVA has sunk to new levels paying $300,000 per annum for their diversity honcho. They have money to burn. I was misguided in my support for BM as Hc for football. He has regressed to being one of the biggest bullsh ters in coaching. I hope our win up there will send his moldy butt into coaching oblivion.

RE: Va Colleges Spending on Football & Basketball
Revenues come from two primary sources, student athletic fees and donations. Might add some revenue from ticket sales, but this hinges on winning and a better parking setup. The development officer who convinces wealthy donor(s) that God put him and/or her on earth to fund parking facilities will deserve a bonus.

The athletic department doubtless has a handle on "bird in hand" pending donations. Will be interesting to see what revenue and expenses look like over next 3 - 4 years. Particularly if overall numbers don't surge, where the Tribe competes becomes as important as how much is spent competing.

The notion of "punching above one's weight" is a bit more compelling in non-conference competition than in conference. For every school valorously punching above its weight, there is probably another conference school with a larger enrollment, higher student activity fees, larger budget (or fewer sports to fund), and less stringent academic requirements perfectly happy to punch below weight and its ticket to the NCAA tournament.
