Yes. We will continue to be losers until we have better coaching.

All I’ll say is it was a pretty brutal Saturday for ODU fans.

RE: Are we losers?
Looking back over the past 25-30 years (which is my window), MBB has been up and down and we are most likely slightly below average right now. We do appear to be much weaker than some of the great early/mid 80s teams and the Bazemore/Hassell CAA teams. 2017 and 2018 recruiting appear to have the potential to bring us back to, or above average.

Football is obviously a different ballgame, needing a lot more time to build a team, fanbase, stadium, etc. I think that we killed ourselves going to the CUSA because (1) the talent is better and (2) nobody cares about playing UTSA, so the fans are passive and we can't recruit any better. Hopefully the stadium will help make the game more of an event, much like the Ted does for basketball. Sitting in Foreman watching no-name teams is getting pretty brutal. I have had season tickets from day 1 and it is much less entertaining now than it was back in the W&M/JMU/App State days.

WBB is tough, the new coach seems to be a good hire and the 2018 class seems to help. I was Big Blue back in the day and saw some good teams. Obviously now we aren't even in the same universe with talent and coaching with Barefoot representing the bottom of the barrel as far as I am concerned.

And to complete the ODU Saturday trifecta, Kent Bazemore had 3 points on 1-4 shooting in a home blow out loss to Toronto by 34 points...

I don't want to be that hard on myself. I just consider all of the money I have spent on ODAF and tickets a questionable investment.

My biggest complaint about football is 6-6 is considered a successful season... And 9-3 is no different... some crappy weekday bowl game against some other crappy team. We basically play for nothing.

At least none (or very few) of you are also Giants fans. I was combating my thanksgiving tryptophan overdose with bourbon to stay up to watch the sh**& game vs. the skins.
