    The 60 foot line had never been touched at practice before. Today it was finally hit. Then it was broken. Then it was shattered. All by @bruffthrows. Great time to have practice PRs. #ThrowerNation #ShotPut #Practice #LetsGoVCU #

    A few boat changes, some line up changes, a couple 2ks, countless ibuprofen, long hours in the van, lots of pasta, and 5 regattas later I wouldn't have changed anything about this season. From the beginning of winter conditioning, or the start of hell, to the end of ACRAs, I'd do anything for these ladies. We were the team who should not have made an open weight varsity eight but we showed up and held on to the big girls. The odds were definitely stacked but we were stronger. I love you ladies, thanks for a great season. #letsgoVCU #VCUcrew #AtVCUweSPRINT

VCU links up with chain

      The “chain” has re-emerged at VCU.

     VCU coach Shaka Smart gave his team a metal chain as a symbol of connectivity before the team left for the Atlantic 10 tournament this week.

     “Every link represents a person,” VCU senior guard Rob Brandenberg said. “When we all get together and form that chain, it’s unbreakable. It’s a bond.”

     Freshman forward Antravious Simmons wore the chain around his neck while sitting on the bench during Friday’s quarterfinal win over Richmond. Simmons, who is redshirting, said he had it because he’s always on the bench.

    Former VCU coach Anthony Grant gave the 2007 team a chain before the Colonial Athletic Association tournament. Each link had a piece of tape with initials written on it.

    The chain took on a life of its own after the Rams won the CAA tournament and went on to upset Duke in the first round of the NCAA tournament.
