Where is everyone getting ODU from? I have yet to see any reports about the Alliance or Sun Belt ever mentioning them as a possible candidate

RE: Benson Likes Sun Belt's Position
ODU is getting noticed because they are in a large market (Norfolk Va.), which is also a fertile recruiting ground, and since starting football 3 years ago, have averaged 20,000 per game for three years, have had three winning seasons, and even made it to the FCS playoffs last year. Theyve already stated that FBS was their goal.

ODU is on the radar of CUSA without a doubt. How far down the list, I dont know, but they got as much potential as anyone.

They've also sold over 14,000 season tickets, and have a waiting list of 1700.

As for Liberty I cannot imagine wanting to go there for anything. I guess Jerry Fallwell wants to make them the Baptist BYU/Notre Dame. Being that the SBC is a confernece of large national research universities, I don't see Liberty happening. Presidents tend to like other Presidents like themselves (see ECU still not in Big East).

Doubt Jerry Falwell wants this, sense he has been dead for like 5 years!!

RE: Benson Likes Sun Belt's Position
Jax St isn't going to be a Sun Belt member while Troy, South, and Middle to a lesser extent have a say on the matter. I don't just not want to be associated with them but people Alabama has a three million population and five D1 schools. Moving them up would simply mean Troy and South would stop developing and have to resort to even more junior college players.

I'm with you on this. I'm not even convinced that ODU even wants to move up because I never heard of them until I saw Marshall and ECU fans constantly bringing them up.

I still have yet to hear anything from their AD on any media outlet about moving up.

I've heard of Old Dominion because they used to be big time in women's basketball (like LaTech) and were a main rival for our women's team

ODU would be a very good get for the Sunbelt if that (market) is what we are going for.

Coach is Finwood
