Re: “The Analyst: How VCU's Will Wade Uses Discipline and Data to Keep Ram Ball Rolling

I like this coach. I was worried at first, but he's smart (no pun intended) and I believe he has what it takes to get his players to perform beyond their own expectations. The Rams' pre-season outlook was pretty bleak for this year. I think they were predicted as a #5 in the A-10.

When I think about what they faced coming into the season - graduated two outstanding seniors, lost all 3 of their highly rated recruits, Larrier transferred, and obviously their head coach - the remaining players must have felt like their season was over before it even started. Coach Wade came in and filled gaps in the roster with quality players, made changes in the offense and defense, and most importantly, got the guys to believe in themselves. There are still occasional lapses in performance, but I see the team as whole (aside from the UMass game) improving every week. I just wish this exact same group of guys could have another season together under Coach Wade. I think the results of the non-conference losses would have been vastly different. If we don't get an automatic bid to the NCAA we'll still earn an at-large bid. The lessons learned so far this year will serve us well.
