Close but no cigar, eh? I remember when we were such a splash in the Sun-Belt Conference in '81.
As you probably know I post with my real name. I graduated School of Business. Even though VCU was a big university at the time, we may have met.
I was a biology and chemistry double major at the time, so you guys were across Main Street from us. My GF at the time graduated in your class of 1983 with a BA in Marketing. More likely that you would have known her than me.
I worked at the time for E.R. Carpenter Company on "Southside," directly for Stan Pauley, for whom the new business school building is named. Worked all day and went to school at night. Certainly what VCU was/is known for.
True. Since I was a Vet, I worked at McGuire, and the G.I. Bill to pay my way.
Shaka Smart might get us a NCAA title the way J.D. Barnett couldn't.
