Ram Ramblings: All settled in here in West Virginia for Saturday's game

SHEPHERDSTOWN, West Virginia – By the time Andrew Dye, one our ace photographers, and I arrived at our hotel this afternoon I quickly came upon Coach Connell Maynor and a few of his coaches playing basketball.

The hotel has a nice gym and workout area and the WSSU coaches and others were taking advantage of some down time to play basketball. There were about nine coaches and other staff members at WSSU who took part as well as Maynor’s brother, Craig, who played basketball for WSSU and the late Big House Gaines.

“It’s just a way to get a good workout in and let off some steam,” Connell said a little later after he and the Rams did a short walk-through at Shepherd University’s stadium which is called Rams Stadium. Shepherd has the same nickname as WSSU. “The guys were resting while we played some basketball, and then after the walk-through we’ll have a nice dinner at the hotel and get ready for the game.”
