This is a non-starter.

EDIT:
Payout is $1.5 million until 12/1/2017. $1.2 million after that until 12/1/2018 and down $300k a year going forward.

Great point ! we made him and the asst. coaches way too comfortable !

Wilder has earned some capital coming off of our best season ever last year.

But this season looks ugly so far and he'd better find a QB and some decent WRs for next year.

No offense but I disagree with you. We aren't the fans that matter to ODU, unless you give a lot more to ODAF than I do. ODU cares about the huge corporate donors, many of which I'm sure aren't on the message boards.

There are many donors on here that donate over $6K/yr. to ODAF. I would say ODAF had better figure out away to generate other revenues.

Come to ODU! Where it doesn't matter what you do up until then, the first season that you don't play up to expectations, you're out on your ass! I swear to God, people around here act like bowl games and +.500 records are God-given rights even though the program is still less than 10 years old. But sure, turf everyone and oh while we're at it, let's drop down a level so we can win more! In fact, **** Division 1! ODU's national title in basketball came in Division 2, so maybe that's where they should be! Until the recruiting falls to that level and they don't automatically get 30 wins in hoops and 10 wins in football every year just by existing, but the good news is there's more levels below. Division 3? Sure, let's line up with Randolph-Macon and CNU in football and CNU and Virginia Wesleyan in hoops! ODU's way bigger and has way better facilities than them, so they should always be in national title contention! And if not? Well, there's always the NAIA! And the NCCAA! Maybe ODU's level has been Mid-Atlantic Christian and Regent all this time!

I really hope some of you people are not tasked with long-term goals in your jobs because if the pearl-clutching and panic-selling around here is any indication, you'd bury your companies by the end of the fiscal year.

This year is going to suck. Get over it and get better. Or fap to the memories of beating Chowan and Campbell. Your choice.

Solid post.

A similar message is being sent to the recruits who we suck at recruiting [/s].

I do strategic planning and have been very successful at it because we spend a lot of time doing SWOT analyses. I can tell you this....we have very few S, many W, few O's, and there are a lot of T's staring us right in our faces.

OK...I can support this but next year is for sure a hot seat year. BTW...Marshall had many P5 level transfers. Why has BW landed any of them.

We are smack dab in the middle of one of the best recruiting areas in the country. We should be much better in football and basketball. Our problem is too many fans willing to settle for mediocre.

Having said that, we'd better beat Charlotte. They lost at home to Georgia State 28-0.

Hey bud....don't set your expectations for a win against UNCC. Honestly we could easily lose the rest of our games. This team has no OL. A very young QB, and a WR that is not even FCS quality.
