That most of them aren't satisfied?

You are right. The fans seem super-satisfied about the athletic department.

Good one, but I am pretty sure we don't even have a quorum of athletic boosters on here. Just the same old gang, with same arguments. It gets tired after a while

Ignoring the folks and focusing only on maintaining tolerance of the big donors is a poor management strategy. Ask Hillary Clinton. For a department that is trying to make a very expensive rennovation to the football stadium while being broke and hamstrung by the legislature, they need every dollar they can get. I don't think the big donors would be dissatisfied by improvement either. Then again, the Big Blue Room might start to fill up with us smelly peasants again.

+1000

That's why this board so often turn into these ongoing shouting matches between several folks across every thread. It's the insatiable need to be seen and heard for free.

Meanwhile back at the ranch, ODAF continues to roll.

We don't have a rumor for who the next coach is, and this thread is already starting to turn into a pissing contest between who donates and who doesn't. I'm actually impressed.

You got a lot of axes to grind with ODU, and assume a lot of things that may or may not be true, such as the department listening only to big donors. . . Like the assumption that they're broke . . . Like the fact that only the well-heeled get into the BBR. . .

Time for the moderators to step up. These boards are becoming unreadable.

Thinking the same, the new coach needs to hit the ground running.

Gianna Smith transferring, that makes three gone including Keyana Brown and Manaya Jones and we graduated our best players. Didn't we lose a recruit? Anyone seeing players following KB? The cupboard is looking pretty bare. It's going to take some rebuilding, and the new HC needs to get started.

What if KB and UNCW don't work out a contract and she comes back for a lame duck season? Yikes.

wow, that is really an awful situation because we are likely to lose all our recruits that Karen was bringing in as well. She really has landed a death blow to this program, we will have 5-6 remaining players on this team if nobody else leaves. Bad, bad, bad!

RE: Rumor: Barefoot to UNCW
Well said, DaBig. +2.

The lack of a roster will hurt the search as well. We need to move on ASAP.

And you'd think UNCW would want her to hit the ground running.

Rumor: Barefoot to UNCW
I think I read that UNCW called an unscheduled board of visitors meeting today, with speculation being that it was to approve Barefoot's contract. Pure speculation though.

Maybe UNCW is not as dumb as we think. I mean to say that they need a basketball coach as opposed to an enthusiasm coach.

USC hasn't been relevant in women's hoops since Cheryl Miller played there. Probably hard as heck to win there.

looks like the meeting is to negotiate pay for a new hire, so most likely Karen

Where did you get this information from (link?). I had high hopes for her next year... that sucks.

Easily one of the biggest failures in odu history.

And yet many of our fans were "excited for next year".

Sometimes you just have to shake your head.

What parallel universe are you in? I've only seen 1 or 2 people who thought this team could be any good after losing Jennie. Most on this board were welcoming this.

I tend to love what you say, but this one might be a bit far fetched. failure? yes. One of the biggest in history? maybe a stretch.

Either way, hopefully WS can finally get a basketball coach right?

Since we are talking about Corrigan as a possibility, why not JJ?COGS
