RE: Big Blue 5K/Spring Game
I knew the BBQ would not be part of the Spring Game/Race Saturday this year. ODAF knew it was a disaster last year re: the BBQ/basketball fans. The intimacy of previous BBQs was missing where you could interact with the players and coaches. Not to mention the running out of food and ridiculously long lines plus at least half the people there last year who were only there for the race with no interest in ODU BB. I just think this year's team (and the fans) deserve the recognition of a Big blue BBQ.

At this time there is no scheduled Big Blue BarBQ, they may do something this Summer. The other plan is to have a Coaches Caravan before the UVa-ODU game at Hits there at Harbor Park. Most of this, is the coaches need the time to recruit.

ODAF are stupid if they dont do a barbecue. Thats one of the few long standing traditions of the program. They got rid of it during the Capel years and that was a debacle. It took a lot of effort to bring it back and it should stay.

The Big Blue 5K page mentions Ynot (pizza, pasta, gelato???) being served at the tailgate party. Not sure how to purchase a ticket to attend if you're not running in the 5K. http://www.odubigblue5k.com/race-informa...party.aspx

RE: Big Blue 5K/Spring Game
The BBQ used to always be some time in May during the periods that are restricted for recruiting....whatever that's called. They moved it up to April the last few years to coincide with the Spring football game. When that happened all the coaches couldn't be at the event. There is a Coaches Caravan prior to the UVA/ODU baseball game at Harbor park April 28th. That would be a great idea to have the BBQ then but the players aren't usually at the Caravans and KB and Wilder are there since the Caravans are for both BB and FB coaches. Last year at Chick's the baseball and Womens Lacrosse coaches were there too. They are terrific events!

It was a BigBlue BBQ a few years back that I knew Blaine was in trouble. Big Trouble.

It was right after Selig was hired, and we were on some kid that eventually committed (and later left) Illinois.

Really hoping they don't do away with the BBQ, it's a tradition this basketball fan always loves.

Not sure but I believe the plan is to tie it to the ODU vs UVA baseball game at harbor park in May.

I certainly hope that a basketball BBQ is held this year. Not doing so is very short sighted.

Seems I read that somewhere, but may have just been talk with nothing firm set up.
