Update: Brandon Rozzell is still a shooter.

There are a ton of former Rams playing professionally these days, and it’s fun to check out how some of our favorites are acquitting themselves around the globe. With that in mind, let’s kick off this Monday and see how former Ram and fan-favorite Brandon Rozzell is doing in Denmark OH JEEZ HE’S SETTING THE LEAGUE ON FIRE.

To wit:

Say, that’s pretty good. I feel like I’ve seen this kind of shooting somewhere, but I’m having a hard time putting a finger on it. I just had one question, however.

We’ll keep you posted.

PS: This is Rozzell’s current team’s logo. This bunny does not mess around, obviously.

In current VCU news, the win of the weekend goes to the VCU Volleyball team. The Rams, beset by injuries and youth, have shown flashes of potential this year, but hadn’t been able to hit their stride. That may be changing.

The Rams rolled into Saint Louis Friday night and sent a sonic boom across the A-10 landscape. The Billikens entered the match riding a 15-match win streak and were unbeaten in league play. Not anymore. VCU topped Saint Louis 3-2 in a wild, back-and-forth affair. Watch how the Rams react on the final play of the match. This was a monumental win and they knew it.

 

INTERMISSION

…and we’re back.

Last week we told you about the rapid turnaround of the VCU Women’s Soccer team. Well, VCU dropped a 2-0 decision to George Washington in what was a showdown between the last of the A-10 unbeatens. But the Rams bounced back with a 4-1 win over La Salle. Julia Suarez, VCU’s impressive freshman striker, scored two more goals. She has six this year. Suarez should be in the running for the league’s rookie honors at the end of the season. Meanwhile, here’s how the A-10 race is shaping up. VCU (7-7-1, 5-1) has four league games remaining.

The Rams will have another big match on Thursday when they travel to George Mason.

On the men’s side, VCU remains unbeaten in league play following a pair of ties last week. As a result, the last couple weeks of the season will be interesting. The A-10 race is tight at the top.

VIDEO TIME!
In case you missed it last week, we pumped out a couple of fun videos.

In the first, we asked the VCU Golf team to break out its best golf shots. The guys answered the call, and then some. Safe to say these guys are better golfers than any of us (unless that’s you, Jordan Spieth, who keeps leaving mean comments on the blog.

The guy at the beginning of that video is junior Jamie Clare. He’s from Somerset, England. Can you tell?

Today’s second clip came out of the annual men’s basketball photo day, where we asked the players who the team’s worst dancer was. It was nearly unanimous.
