    Protocol returns to the boards which means GMU wins. They are tougher than their record indicates so it won't be easy. GMU 66 - Richmond 62.

    Mason makes threes, dominates the post and plays good defense.

    Limit turnovers and shoot average behind the arc and we win. We are deep enough into the season to know these are our the two aspects of our game that fluctuate game-to-game.

    Our guards are playing like their are exhausted. During the last 3 games, Kier, Greene, and Otis are a combined 31% from the field and 24% from 3-point range. And that doesn't even include the free throw woes of some players. Our team will go as these three guys go. Hopefully it is just a brief slump and they will again find their range.

    This one isn't going to be close and you'll do us all a favor that will make the A10 better. Get Mooney fired. He's just a bad coach that happened to have a great squad several years back. Hate to say it being a fur hater, but they need to be good for the A10 to be good.

    Spider Nation is over Mooney. Hard to believe he has been at UR for 14 seasons. After the Sweet 16 he got a ten year contract. Apparently they will owe him $3M if fired after this season.

    Interesting wish list they have for their next coach. It includes Mr. Liz Turner and Shaka. Don't see either one going to UR, but it sure would make things interesting.

    We need to take down the Spiders like Joe Pesci took down Spider in GoodFellas. No mercy! (Language NSFW)

    For some reason, I feel like we are due for a let down game. This is a game we should win but I get the gut feeling that we lose a close one.

    Miss Turner would go if the Mr allows. Also, they pay more.

    For anyone going to the game tonight, word of caution on painting your body green, especially the facial area.

    Somewhat of a sensitive thing in Richmond these days.

    I'm tempted to take that line. It's almost too good, it's making me think otherwise.
