    I think that could cause some problems though, Frank is only getting a raise because we want to pay our basketball coach more than the coach we have had for 25 years. Seems like a sticky situation. If Beamer was worth $3MM he should have been making that already.

    Right? Hey donor, we hired one of the hottest coaches in college basketball. At one point he turned down Illinois and Maryland. But now he is ours.

    Donor hands over millions.

    I don't believe you - but I'd love to eat some crow on this one.

    More on this as I get it.
    You'd have to be insider at VCU and VT to know this and why anyone who IS an insider would be reporting this on our board already makes no sense

    If true, no way VT pays a basketball coach more than Beamer. Whoever they hire will be capped below Beamer's salary so if Shaka wants $2.5million, he will have to look elsewhere.
