GIVING DAY 2023
Given your screenname, I have to make one of two assumptions. You were born in 1984 or you graduated from GMU in 1984.Yet JMU a god awful Basketball program is propped up by beating a garbage MSU. Being in Sunbelt which is a complete joke doesnt hurt them! Either beat vcu or should have never joined it's not Rocket science. Losing to vcu every year and not making tournament is not good. Or play in bad conference and be like JMU? Or be like someone like Vermont? I guess you all would rather play cult schools that no one cares about. Football ruined college basketball. Old CAA with odu, uncw, vcu and mason was way better than Current A10.
All I would like is to stop losing to vcu. It just makes no sense what their end goal was. It's been a giant nightmare.
If the former, you were spoiled by Larranaga when you were an undergrad. GMU has made the tournament a total of 6 times since becoming a D1 program 41 years ago. Five of those six appearances happened while Larranaga was coach. Based on a birth year of 1984, you were likely a student during our run to the Final Four. To think that success would last forever is wishful thinking.
Now if the latter, that you graduated in 1984 and you have been a fan since before GMU was even a D1 program, I don't even know what to say. Your time as a fan has had 85% of "unacceptable non-tourney" years and only 15% of, in your eyes, acceptable years. I don't even know why you (personally, you) would still be a fan if you require winning so much.
Either be a fan or don't be - don't predicate fandom of a college team based on winning.
