Comparing Woods success from WKU to ODU
I know it hasnt been 10 years yet under Wood Selig but I think a fair comparison can be made

In 11 years at WKU, under Seligs leadership, the Hilltoppers posted 70 conference championships. A very impressive 6.4 championship seasons per year.

In 8 years at ODU, under Seligs leadership, the Monarchs have posted 7 conference championships. A not so impressive .875 championship seasons per year.

" Dr. Camden Wood Selig is in his eighth year as Director of Athletics at Old Dominion University, where his “Championship Effort” philosophy has helped to guide the department as one of the most respected and successful intercollegiate programs in the nation." 03-lmfao

RE: Comparing Woods success from WKU to ODU
ODU plays eight ACC schools over the next four football seasons. Selig says that as long as NCAA scholarship levels – 85 for football and 13 for men’s basketball – are maintained, ODU can be competitive with the ACC in all sports.

“It’s very difficult and very challenging,” he said. “But no matter how much they spend, as long as the scholarship limits are untouched, they can’t corner the market on every athlete.

“There are enough outstanding athletes to go around.”

Don't forget that weve got the highest budget in our conference. Why arent we getting any bang for our buck in our major sports?

Selig spent 11 years directing the Western Kentucky University Hilltopper athletic program, which won 70 Sun Belt Conference championships from 2000-2010 and a national record 19 crowns in two seasons, 2008-2010.

It's the Sun Belt, though. ODU would clean up in the MEAC!

I understand it's the sun belt. I was just a little shocked to see the difference in the numbers 70 to 7, take away 3 years to even it up at 8 years a piece and it's 51 to 7. Still a pretty large difference

From our website.

Did a quick search and found 3 in baseball and 1 in men's golf and 2 in football (1-AA).
Around 30 in men's/women's cross country and track & field
Around 10 in women's volleyball
I see 5 in men's basketball (SBCT Champions)

I think there is some fuzzy math in there (Maybe individual championships?)

But he racked up a bunch in CC and T&F (both indoor and outdoor). If you have a strong men's and women's team, you can collect 4 team championships per year. Can't compare those numbers to the numbers in ODU program.

Fair enough. Im really more concerned with winning less than 1 championship per year than with how many WKU won under him. We have what 18 sports or something?

Based on that huge number of championships i figured that he was at least hired partially based on his track record of success. we have a lot of good things going for us, and some advantages over our conference mates.... feel like Wood should have us in a better place by now.

He also comes off as a bit delusional in some of his quotes.

Its not so much Selig as it is the fact he needs to get us out of this conference or get the conference realigned. It is killing us on all fronts. No passion from the fan base and incredibly difficult to recruit when CUSA absolutely sucks in both basketball and football.

We need to be in a regional league and that League needs to include JMU and Liberty. Plenty of others too ie Marshall, Charlotte, App State, MTSU, WKU, UAB, Ga. St, Ga Southern, Coastal.

Put the Basketball Tournament in location where its driveable for almost everyone. It would draw 30,000 plus over three days.

That would be the FBS version of what the CAA had developed into.

That’s what we must get back to.
