• THANK YOU DONORS!!
    I'd like to personally thank everyone that participated in our first donor drive in years! We raised over double the amount that we set as a goal. You guys are awesome! This money helps to fuel much needed upgrades around here - and also includes monthly server costs and software licenses. We are excited for the future and your donations ensure that there will be a place to talk about George Mason basketball (among other things) for seasons to come! - The Management

Fingers crossed the game isn't cancelled due to the Chairman Xi variant of Covidia. If it is played, Patriot's Pub and Grill in Fairfax City is hosting a watch party. Make sure you register online ahead of time (free). I almost got myself turned away from Coyote Grille during the last watch party for failing to register ahead of time.

Was wondering this too. Some tickets online (tickpick) are listed as GA. On Stubhub they look to be all assigned seats.

Yea, from what I remember of their stadium they offer both since they are bleacher style seating in the corners and top and individual seats on the main 3 sections on each side. I would shoot an email to our ticket office and see if they have used up our ticket allotment yet which should be behind our bench...they usually have them available.

Well it isn't the Coof its the rampant STIs on their campus. So pick your poison.

"After a holiday break, players reported back to VCU Sunday. The program is still not at full strength, as members continue to emerge from the COVID-19 protocols.

But, for now, the Rams are pushing ahead toward their Atlantic 10 opener Thursday, a 7 p.m. tipoff against George Mason at the Siegel Center.

'We’re definitely with a limited roster,' Rhoades said. 'But let’s see where it goes here in the next couple days, and going from there. We’re preparing to play.'”

"Rhoades wouldn’t divulge how many players are available right now, and how many might be available on Thursday. He said some members of the program have gotten sick from contracting COVID-19."

They are planting excuses to explain their loss. Nothing more nothing less.

Go Mason - burn Richmond to the ground.

My prediction: VCU struggles to score, they are currently #338 (at the time of this post) in the NCAA in points per game. On the other hand they are #10 (at the time I posted) in points allowed. They aren’t pretty and really aren’t that good if you take care of the ball. Captain Obvious says we need to be prepared to handle pressure for 40 minutes. GMU 59 - VCU 55. We gut out a tough and UGLY road win.

I have a suspicion it'll be a different team w/Baldwin back in the lineup.

On the one hand, we had no pre-warning of a possible issue with Wisconsin Men's team having any COVID issues and then it gets canceled at the last second.

VCU, on the other hand has known COVID issues on the team and yet the game is still being planned to move forward.

It seems kind of (not sure the right adjective here) odd/contradictory/confusing.

Here's mike rhoades weekly presser.

The covid situation on the team seems to be severe and coach rhoades seems to have his fingers crossed

In all honesty, it would be better to postpone the game until vcu is complelely negative.
