I found a VCU fan forum. It's not very insightful regarding our game, but for I've posted the few relevent comments below.
The Official Beat the Kennesaw State Owls at the Stu Thread
Mostly upperclassmen with good size. Sub .500 last season but doubled their # of wins so they're learning.
Better not sleep on these kids but if we can root around and find our A game, we should be OK.
Yeah but we have not played well yet this season. Its not just the Memphis game getting under people's skin.
But lets see if we can't settle down a bit and play a better game against these Owls. I really want to see some better basketball eve if its not a W.
Kenpom has the game 74-62 with an 86% chance of victory for the good guys.
(bb_fan comment: There's a difference between D1 and D3? Nothing to do with our game but I liked the observation.)
I'll be at the game with my son, who is a freshman at home on break from CNU. He went to a Captains home game this semester and texted me that it was a shocking step down from D1 to D3. He's been going to VCU games since he was 10 or 12, and says he's ready for some Rams basketball.
With that said, let's get a W this Saturday vs a not good NCAA team. Kennesaw State has been D1 since 2005 and never been in the top 200 of KenPom's rankings. Now they are still an NCAA D1 team so I'm not saying they don't have talent, but......... this is a game that VCU should win and should win handily. Let's get back to winning ways ahead of a huge week.
The owl that was dead in my yard is now in the woods and it’s still dead. GO RAMS, BEAT OWLS.
That's the highlights of 6 pages of comments...
