Around the Rim is a semi-regular piece at Rhody Rampage, recapping articles, interviews, and news regarding the Rams, the A-10, and the entire college sports landscape.
- Our partner site has put together a list of 20 mid-major teams to watch this season. And while we don’t exactly think the A-10 fits the “mid-major” mold, URI checks in at #15. [Bleacher Report]
- One of Rhody’s highest-profile recruiting targets for 2014 is D.J. Foreman. But you already knew that. Well the Rams now have some competition from the Minnesota Golden Gophers. [FanSided150]
- The hits keep coming for Rutgers. Their new A.D. Julie Hermann is facing allegations that she verbally abused players sixteen years ago as the head coach of the Tennessee volleyball team. And now she’s getting calls to leave Rutgers before she even starts. [Sports Illustrated]
- Should Rhody have a Division I hockey team? Some say yes, and there have been rumors floating around about the possibility. But the powers that be reportedly have no interest. [Rhode Island Public Radio]
Finally, in the spirit of Memorial Day, thanks to all the men and women who have served (and continue to serve) our country. Cheers to all of you from us here at Rhody Rampage.
