    I thought Paulsen was a decent hire, but I thought Jones might have been a good replacement for Hewitt back then too.

    We would probably get the VCU version of Ernie Nestor.

    I could see a scenario where Shaka is fired from Texas and Rhodes is let go from VCU and Shaka is welcomed back to VCU. Yikes.

    I don't see that happening this year. Rhoades is only in year 3.

    Rhodes is signed through 2025, with more money over the course of the contract. I have no clue what his buyout would be, but I suspect they are willing to stick with him over the long haul because of the cost, unless he goes elsewhere. I’d be surprised if they pulled the cord this year even if VCU misses the tournament.

    https://www.espn.com/mens-college-b...628/top-coach-year-candidate-every-conference:

    "Atlantic 10 Conference
    Front-runner:
    Anthony Grant, Dayton

    Grant also is topping a number of national coach of the year lists at this point after turning Dayton, a team that was picked to finish third in the Atlantic 10, into a national title contender and potential No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament. The development of Obi Toppin, who is now a first-round pick in every reputable mock draft, has been the most remarkable story in the sport this year.

    Top competition: David Cox, Rhode Island

    A year ago, the Rams were a sub-100 defensive team with a 12-14 record overall entering the last week of February. This year, the Rams (largely with the same cast, led by Fatts Russell) are a team that is trying to catch Dayton in the A-10 race while playing top-25 defense nationally and fighting for an at-large slot in the NCAA tournament."

    I wish preaseason Ken Pom meant something. We would be much better off than we are in real life

    I mean, is there a real difference between 155 and 171? Both are in that middle zone mediocre, who cares zone.

    Yeah...down 19 with 15 minutes left. Apparently went 9-15 from 3 in the second half. And Daly, their best player, was out for the second straight game. Will he be playing against us on Saturday?

    Dayton is up 7 at the half but VCU is playing better than they did against us.

    off topic---anybody get as super-annoyed at the back-to-back AdoptUSKids ad they keep showing?
