RE: ODU WBB vs CNU [exhibition]
Guess I wasnt paying close enough attention. Felt like Doug Ripley was still referring to them as the LM just this week.

Edit: The Pilot is where I keep seeing it, so I just assumed nothing had changed yet.

It seems like they're trying to be half-pregnant with regards to a name change. If they're going to do it, then issue a press release and hold a news conference to make it official. Get everyone on the same page. Otherwise, you're going to get what you're seeing now, which is ODU quietly shifting to Monarchs in official releases while ESPN and the Pilot still using Lady Monarchs because they've not been told anything different on the record.

That CNU squad could compete in D1 and beat some D1 schools. 29-3 last season and made it to the Final Four.

We had a CNU transfer on the men's football and basketball teams. Don't let the D3 classification fool you.

I think the Monarchs finish with a winning record.

Yep. It's time to retire the Lady Monarchs name. It probably should have gone away when Wendy was removed from power. Need to clue in the cheerleaders too. They were doing their "Lady Monarchs" cheer last night.

On Instagram yesterday the storyline on ODU was "CNU Exhibition tonight at 7". I had to do a double take to make sure it wasn't the men.

I watched the game. CNU is terrible. There is a ton more talent in Men's basketball, so it takes a lot more talent to play D1. By the time you drop down to D2 and then to D3 in Women's basketball, there's not much talent left. That's why you see such a huge drop off in the level of the the top 5 or so Women's teams and the next teams below them. There just aren't the numbers of women with both size and athleticism to fill the rosters.

Saying that, we knew this would be a tough year. Karen left the cupboard pretty bare. It does look like Nikki has done some good recruiting, but it still might take a couple of years to get back on track. The future does look bright, if we can survive this year. I sat through the Men's 5-25 year, I can make it through this.

I remember CNU had a really good women's player a few years ago, Chelsea Schweers from Hickory HS. Best 3-point shooter in D-3 history and one of the best scorers ever at that level. She at least could have gotten some PT at ODU.

Just out of curiosity: why? I personally like the name "Lady Monarchs". Also quickly distinctive telling you that you are talking about women's basketball. Am I out of touch or something? I thought it was a nice name.

It was a touch divisive for one. The hardcore women’s hoops fans despised the men’s program, some rather openly. It also was awful from a branding perspective. All our teams are Monarchs. Monarch men’s and women’s baseketball, soccer, tennis, or golf just looks and sounds better.
