The A-10 would have been great but that doesn't guarantee anything.

Mason has been there four years, has been under .500 three times, and went to the CBI this year. Nothing makes me happier in sports than Mason not doing well in basketball. They had the two most annoying posters in the history of the Internet. With the exception of captain complaint that we have here of course.

I would have liked our chances to be competitive in the A-10 had we been in that conference starting a few years back. We have had some success against Richmond, VCU, GMU, and others from the A-10 during that period so I doubt that we would be performing similar to how GMU has been if we were concentrating on basketball as the main sport. In my opinion we would be a better program today than we are in C-USA, and still we are competitive against A-10 schools.

Not saying I completely disagree with you, just saying there are a lot of variables and "what ifs" in that scenario.

Wasn't Charlotte mediocre in the A10 after years of success in the good hoops version of CUSA? Nothing is guaranteed. I'll take football all day.

At least in the A10 we would have home games with teams like Dayton instead of teams like North El Antonio.

Agreed, but we wouldn't be hosting UNC, NC State, and VT in football. We also wouldn't be collecting 1.3M for guarantee games to travel to Liberty in football.

There are so many variables here, it isn't a simple equation. I'm more of a basketball fan than football but I can see the arguments on both sides.

I know a lot of people think that football hurt men's basketball but I'm not 100% sure about that.

There is no question in my mind that the start of football has had a significantly negative impact on ODU's Men's Basketball program. In my opinion, ODU would be playing in the Atlantic 10 the past few seasons if not for football.

What on earth leads you to believe the Atlantic 10 would want four teams from the state of Virginia? And as far as football hurting basketball, when is BB bringing UNC, Wake Forrest, NC State, UVA ect. to campus?

Unless we win those games against those BCS programs it does nothing for us
