Our chances for an at-large were eliminated in June when the schedule came out.

I would agree but if we only had 3 losses in OCC portion and 1 or 2 losses in conference we stood a chance. A loss against the Ticks would put a nail in those hopes.

I think at this point the only way ODU gets an at-large is if they go undefeated all the way to the title game. There are no more good win opportunities in the OOC and probably only a couple in-conference, depending on how the next month or so shakes out. The best win to date (Dayton) will be nice but hardly the kind of result upon which you hang your at-large hopes. A road win against VCU would have been better but even that wouldn't have been enough. They needed to win Charleston to have even a puncher's chance. Now it's a matter of getting a top-four seed in Frisco and making a run.

Can't argue with that but I will note that Towson is probably our best win on paper.

Yeah, that's a good point. Clearly those two wins are going to stand heads and shoulders above any other OOC results.

Towson is our best win! A team we beat 19 out of 20 while in the CAA and 28 of 30 overall is our best win! Is there anything else that can be said about our current status in the world of college hoops?

Towson's a good team! Certainly better than most of the Towson teams that ODU beat in the CAA.

Why is it so hard for people to believe that other teams can improve?

ODU vs Richmond Spiders
I was on instagram the other day and the ODU Sports account posted this picture:

Check out the uniform the guy is wearing, hinting at the throwback we're supposed to be wearing against NSU 04-cheers04-clap2
