Granted, the two weaknesses (QB and LB) are pretty important, which is why I'm skeptical to pencil them in at #1. Overall, their talent is the best in the conference from top to bottom.The only position that potentially allows for other teams to make up ground is QB. With that said, ODU's QB battle is looking pretty solid. If we can come away with a game manager, our O-line, running game, WRs, and TEs should be able to carry the offense. Our defense will likely end up being the best in the conference.

Lol, says the guy from a team that's never even had a NFL draft pick. Talent no not even close but teams aren't made of individual talent if that was the case Tech would have won three straight CUSA with the most NFL players.

It is why WKU and Empty Sue will continue to get top billing by our fans -- at least until we finally one day can avoid having our clocks cleaned by the both of them. And it also explains why UTSA gets somewhat less respect from our fans than others, and why La. Tech fans are the least impressed by WKU's chances for a three-peat this year. (That theory does not explain, however, why La. Tech fans have us down at 6th position. I presume that is mostly a result of the Dawgxas/HotDawg stalker-level obsession.)

I think it's more likely the annual WKU and MTSU clock cleaning.

So we should put USM ahead of you in the West?

LOL. No NFL draft picks, but they none the less have this (see link below).

You contradict yourself. First you come out talking about how ODU doesn't have any NFL draft picks (talent), then you reverse course and say that "teams aren't made of individual talent" and "if that was the case Tech would have won three straight CUSA (titles) with the most NFL players". So are you saying that ODU will be good because they don't have any NFL draft picks?

What is your problem with odu? Seriously? You ALWAYS come for odu any chance you can even if its not warranted.

Well, we've only had a football team for 8 years. Care to chart our respective teams' trend lines?

As a La Tech fan I think a serviceable QB is all ODU needs to be a true contender.

I agree. I think we have one on the roster. I just worry about having to switch between qbs mid season. Usually doesn't end well.

I do have a problem with ODU football. And that problem is that we lost to them last year.
