I'd like to see Norfolk State and Hampton advertise their programs more. Even if it's just them advertising the Battle of the Bay. (I'm think about going this year, seems really fun)

Hampton, CNU and WM could be doing joint degree programs or some other networking. While they are not quite peers, they do seem to attract some quality students. Try and steal some of those kids away from all the Boston Schools and hopefully retain those great minds.

I'd love to see an ODU /EVMS merger, doubt it will happen though. More team work would help both schools though. I think this partnership would help elevate both institutions nationally.

TCC does a hell of a job promoting they they are the 1 ring to rule them all. I don't really see or hear much about Thomas Nelson.

07-coffee3 You forgot Regent University with 9000 students their starting both mens and womens basketball programs, wrestling, volleyball, golf, both mens and womens soccer and track and field within the next 2 years. 07-coffee3

If I put down Regent, then I should put down Virginia Wesleyan.

CNU was included. If you include D3 you have to include Weslyan too. Regent will probably be D3 within a decade.

I think Regent is going D3 now. Their track and field/ cross country schedule has them competing with D3 schools in the state.

I just looked up Regents master plan looks like their adding a ton of sports over the next few years.

• Men’s & Women’s Volleyball – 2018
• Men’s & Women’s Soccer – 2018
• Men’s & Women’s Basketball – 2019
• Wrestling – 2019
• Men's & Women's Golf – 2020

Regent is in the early development stage of building a state-of-the-art 40-acre athletic complex with NCAA-certified courts and modern facilities.
• Soccer Field
• Football Field
• Tennis Courts
• Track
• Softball Field
• Baseball Field
• Lacrosse Field
• Basketball Field House
• Volleyball Courts
• Track
• Wrestling Gym
• Rock Climbing Wall Gym
• Boxing Ring Gym
• Fitness & Weight Training Equipment

Right now they're members of the NCCAA, which doesn't preclude dual membership in the NCAA or NAIA. With few NCCAA and NAIA members nearby, they almost have to aim for D3. Guessing the aim would be membership in USA South, because I can't imagine the ODAC taking a new program. Maybe the Capital, which has four Virginia schools (including CNU) and Salisbury.

Do they have a mascot yet? I'm guessing it'll be something Christian-themed, like Crusaders or Lions.

A mascot is coming soon. Hoping they stay away from Lions. Theres only room for one Big Blue Beast in town. Then again, if we start having to worry about Regent, ODU is in trouble. Then again part 2, I never thought Id see the day we'd have Liberty nipping at our heels either.
