How dare you disagree with resident expert?! Your courtside seats probably aren't even at mid-court.
the inside jokes you super fans have are weird. Kathy McKay and the guy that runs our Green Coat society sit on the court and I wouldn't trust any basketball opinion they have. It was an egregious pass not sure how the guy slightly out of position to receive it is to blame here though

Attention all superfans - please cease all inside jokes immediately - they are weird. Please limit future comments to anonymous internet insults of our players, coaches and fans - that is not weird at all.

On a side note, it was a little soul crushing to see Caputo's wife posting pics with him, Folarin, Cam, and JV. I still believe in the guy at the top, but man....

Why is it that everyone who has an opinion that differs from yours is a "super fan", or a homer, or a Dave Paulsen fanboy? I guess you just really enjoy coming off as a rick in almost every post. You seem to find one player to constantly bash. First it was JO, now its RP. I don't think RP will ever be a star here but there's no doubt our team is better with him then without. Whether you like it or not, anyone who posts as much as you on a mid major basketball forum is either a "super fan" or a troll.

Not sure what the coaches do as CKE said they didn't teach the kids to box out backwards which the kids did for the first 7 games. Oduro had a wide open guy center court and decided to launch one directly at Dean. Not sure Vic at center court is even catching that as Dean was well closer than center court when he intercepted it

his second half was better than his first half after injury is all I am telling you... he was more aggressive to the rim in the second half after injury? doesn't make sense
Already too much bickering over a press break we can agree to disagree on, but your explanation is why I feared groin with RP. Strain a groin and you can still go north and south pretty effectively, but side-to-side is much more difficult.

Perhaps that was just the vantage point I had from my partially obstructed view... did I do the inside joke thing right?

At least Kathy "loves the business." Did you hear she begged her father to go to work with him, and if you want to talk to her, she'll talk to you. Now about that car she took apart.

I could be wrong but he played much better offensively after his “injury” and played bad defense all game but especially in the second half. Hopefully he’s not hurt for Rhode Island who only has two good guards and can’t shoot. Should be a good Ronnie game

In the second half, I did notice Ronnie with a slight limp and holding his upper leg/groin area as if it was a strain. I was surprised that he didn't come out at that point.

No offense but this is a terrible post. It’s WAY past time for Kim to publicly throw down the gauntlet and say what we’re all thinking. The turnovers ARE ridiculous and the older guys don’t play with the necessary discipline, sense of urgency and swagger.

There’s no sense sugar-coating it at this point. If guys don’t want to get called out by the coach, they need to play up to the program standards. Period.
No offense taken. We'll know very soon whether the finger-pointing worked, but I remain skeptical KE can will (or drill) the TOs away. I'm certain he's been hyper-focused on reducing TOs in practice, but we're not seeing any progress on this front as the season has progressed.

Like I said, I believe in KE, loved the hire, and think we're in for a bright future, but this team and coach find themselves at a bit of a cross road.

We do have a favorable schedule through the end of the A10 regular season, assuming we beat the teams we should beat so I think we can still finish 11-7 in conference, even with our obvious flaws.

I watched the Mason/GW game from start to finish. I think Mason ran into a slightly more talented and deeper GW teams that started to see how good they can be. The GW roster had bought into Caputos system and their improving.

Dont be surprised if GW beats Dayton. Having seen Dayton play VCU at home, I don't believe they have answer for Maximus Edwards and GW has the depth inside to stifle Holmes.

As for Mason, the pats are extremely talented and very close to being good. They just have learn to close out games.

A few plays separate this team from being 14-4 instead of 11-7...so be patient Mason nation..winning on a consistent basis is closer than you think...keep the faith!!

Dude GW is playing like 7 guys on scholarship right now. How is that more talented and deeper?

GW had 7 scholarship players for our game so I don’t think they are deeper. I don’t want to be mean like the VCU boards are but damn you make even our dumbest fans looks smart. GW isn’t beating Dayton.

Harvey was naked? Gross. Players really need to show up for games with clothes on.
Last year, I was told that one of the GW players had a "wardrobe malfunction" and some stuff was hanging out of his shorts that shouldn't have. Thank the gods that I didn't see it myself....

They seem to have a real problem at GW...
 

THANK YOU!
