RE: Are we losers?
I see us as a typical mid-major, competing in a non Power 5 league with all the ups and downs that go with it. Stuck between a rock and hard place, i.e. not big enough pedigree to attract major talent, but still needing to attract decent talent in order to compete. There are many other schools in the same boat.

RE: Are we losers?
I wore an ODU jacket to church this morning .... in Williamsburg, a lady greeter said, "almost won yesterday, just a little short" .... my reply, yeah, 'we were just 31 points short', then I realized she was gloating about the BB Game that was pissed away by ODU. Damn, that really hurt, and in church too!! There is always next year, right?

Now we will get to see who the 'stick by your team' fans are and who are the 'fair weather only' supporters. Another egg laying season like this one and the new stadium premium seats will be really easy to get. I need to shut up before I spout some things that I will regret later. GO MONARCHS.

P.S. The season is made in the off season. So I hope that there is some hard work underway as we speak, and the coaches do some serious studying of, shall we say, more successful FBS programs that seem to be passing us by. I place us right with UTEP, Charlotte, and Rice in the cellar of C-USA. 10 bowl eligible teams of 14 and we are at the bottom of the bottom.

Wilder in four full FBS seasons in C-USA:
26-23 overall
17-15 conference
9-8 out of conference (including bowl win)

Let the debate continue about whether that is good enough and whether that (basically .500 win pct.) trend will continue.

While I want us to get better, Wilder has earned some capital last season.

I think we are being more hamstrung by facilities than by coaching in football. We need a new stadium yesterday.

Everyone thinks the 10 win season last year was something special. Well, it wasn’t! If we would have won 10 games, including a win against App State, NC State and/or WKU that would have been better than a 10 win season against Hampton and a bunch of nobodies.

And winning all 13 games would have been better than both? I don't get what's your point here. Should they have turned down the wins the got because they didn't also get all the wins they wanted?

ODU's still a new program. Exactly what were you expecting?
