About Last Night…

As expected, The Dub was clobbered last night by Wake Forest. The numbers are eye-popping but most of us expected it to be a struggle. For the non-hysterical and accurate “mindset check,” hit Brian Mull’s blog for a run down. Exposed, yes. Panic, no.

Love the passion, though. Even those of you that lit up my email for being so afraid of this game make me proud. You care. As a good friend once said after a blistering by his wife: “I haven’t been spoken to like that by someone who DOESN’T like me.”

Eric Maynor is ridiculous, and I mean that in the good way. I know that isn’t exactly news, but he is so ridiculous so often you are left shaking your head. He was a one-man wrecking crew against South Dakota State last night. (Side note, and commentary: I may have seen the worst official in the history of basketball last night.)

Here’s the skinny: VCU seems to lack a killer instinct. The Rams build a lead and hten seen to step off the gas pedal. VCU fans need to worry less about the Rams’s inside game and more about the fried-egg-eyes look when Maynor is drinking water next to Anthony Grant. They are no better than a middle of the pack team without Maynor.

Check marks for the Tribe (over Norfolk State) and Georgia State (over the Runnin’ Hornets).
