VCU Denies Report That It Will Join The Atlantic 10

Not long after reports surfaced that the Va. Commonwealth Rams would join the George Mason Patriots in the Atlantic 10 on May 1, sources at the university denied the report.

This is not surprising that VCU would immediately deny any report of leaving the Colonial Athletic Association. What does seem to be surprising is the comment that there is 'nothing' to these reports. Obviously there has to be some interest when your conference appears to be putting more emphasis on a sport that you do not field.

By losing the ability for the basketball team to be on ESPN due to the new CAA television deal with NBC, these teams could be wanting to return to a conference that can guarantee exposure to a high degree.
