          The opening weekend of the 2011 College Football season was a very successful one for most of our local universities, only Virginia State came out of the first official weekend of the new season with a loss.  The Trojans were no match for the Spartans of Norfolk State in Saturday’s Labor Day Classic.  Meanwhile, […]

While we’re all celebrating VCU’s rise onto the national stage with their appearance in this weekend’s Final Four, I saw this as a teachable moment for some misinformed fans.
