Going to the Siegel Center for a VCU basketball game is an experience.
The Rams' fan base is arguably one of the rowdiest in the entire country. They're in your face, unrelenting, intense and most importantly loud.
Fittingly, they match the spirit of their team on the court.
Nobody perhaps knows that better than former VCU head coach Will Wade.
Wade, for the first time leading LSU, is on the opposite end of the VCU rowdiness. On Wednesday the No. 23 LSU Tigers traveled to Richmond, Virginia to face the Rams in a contest among undefeated teams.
And the fans did not hold back on their former coach.

As a part of Will Wade's buyout from VCU, Wade's new team is forced to schedule a home-and-home series with VCU. In his third season with the Tigers, this is the first contest of that agreement.
Wade was the head coach of the Rams for two seasons, leading them to the NCAA Tournament both years. He also was a long-time assistant when Shaka Smart led the team during their Cinderella runs in the NCAA Tournament.
The fans came well prepared but also stepped up their troll game to include Wade's FBI investigation. Wade was caught on an FBI wiretap using phrases such as “rookie minimum” and "strong-a** deal" to suggest the payment of then-recruit Javonte Smart. Wade was immediately suspended and missed LSU's run in the NCAA Tournament last year. He was reinstated before the start of this season.
Continue bringing the havoc Rams' fans.
