One picture of Kate Upton in a cut-off ODU tee is all it would take.

But even with that argument we still have more people than all other schools (except for maybe George Mason) even if the area is not as big as others.

Thats because ODU is in an area with a huge population and kids can go to school here and live at home. We need to figure out a way for these kids to want to go to ODU, live on campus and be a part of the University instead of showing up for class and then going home every day. That would be a huge first step in growing the local brand. Make it a place they want to go instead of settle on.

I bet she doesn't even know that JV went here.

Although that is definitely the best idea I've heard.

She was on campus when we retired Verlander's number at a basketball game.

Yeah, I was kidding on that one. I think I knew she was here for that.

I believe that to be the key.

A truth among all truths is that we have not "arrived" until an ODU flag flies in the background of ESPN College Gameday.

I wonder if she agreed to do that and saw all the crap t-shirt options and then backed out? 05-stirthepot
