Re: Ranked number 25 in latest poll and start NCAA tourney

We lose at Clemson after 2 overtimes with penalty kicks. Very good season ends in NCAA first round. We had 3 shots bounce off goal in regulation. We were that close to victory.

Re: The way we lost hurts but...

Clean up the turnovers and we can win some we aren't supposed to. Lot of fixable mistakes on offense that led to easy points for Richmond.

Re: I hope I’m wrong

We were up 7 and had a series of turnovers and let them score 12 in a row. Lost it with turnovers and missed free throws. Too bad but played hard.

Re: UConn on Wednesday

Adam Sparks put it well in a tweet- "VU lost by only 13 to the best team it will play this year."

He is right in terms of talent and coaching VU will not play a better team (U Conn is # 4) the rest of the year - let's hope we win some of the games where we are more evenly matched.

Re: Saturday's unis: all grey, all day

West Point cadets wear grey, but the football and other teams wear black and gold like Vanderbilt should.
I understand that battleships are painted grey - but we don't have a battleship.
I wish we would wear the old uniforms of gold pants and black jerseys at home.

We have better athletes playing decent defense and lots of good potential. I like team and coach. Decent crowd, too.

Lister has not been back in 5 years since she graduated, but she has lots of great things to say about her experience as a student and athlete at VU. A good read - thanks.

Re: A Competent AD

Our AD has been here for ten months. During that time his predecessor has died unexpectedly and his original boss (Chancellor Zeppos) resigned due to health issues. MT has already made one major fire/hire decision. Challenging first year. By now our AD has a sense of the University and the potentia...

So should we try and get in the ACC where many of the schools are actually in our league?

Spot on: we need the administration to support athletics and use winning as a tool to enhance the university with the support of students, faculty, alumni and an adoring community.

It unifies the alumni, the faculty, the students, and the community (fans) in which it is housed. We need a chancellor who u...

Re: bad draw

I don't understand it - Florida which did not have the record we did - hosts and we have to go to Clemson and then if we win go to UCLA. Oh well - at least we are in.

Re: A Competent AD

This sounds like the mentality of a bureaucrat and not a leader. If the Athletic Director isn't free to direct athletics, then the position may as well be abolished again and just allow the chancellor to handle everything.
