Not sure this deserves a thread, but wanted to comment on the fact there is a camp today at ODU. 400-600 kids, college coaches from all over and not a word said on here. Just a few short years ago this weekend was the subject of much debate pro and con. Today? crickets.

Hope BW has a real model of the new stadium to show recruits. The first 2 commits for 2019 are underwhelming.

RE: Times have changed
We do need to see a serious bump in recruiting. Hopefully the stadium does that. A bowl game this year would help a Lot too. Was looking at some pre season mags this week and they all rated our class next to last. That’s several years in a row in the bottom half. One would think with the sell out streak, Bahamas Bowl and a new stadium coming that we’d be near the top.

Film is one thing. Which programs recruit and offers them is another. Film can be deceptive based on competition. Players nowadays are evaluated pretty throughly. Bobby has gotten pretty much everything he has wanted and in some cases at the expense of other teams. It is time to deliver against decent programs.

There are three exposure camp weekends. This is the 2nd.

RE: Times have changed
The camps are great for ODU. Hundreds of potential recruits on campus is a good thing. The WAVY article mentioned that BW has established a friendly relationship with Jim Harbaugh. As an alum, I have a bias for Michigan, but I strongly believe that establishing relationships with Power team coaches is in ODU's interest. There are many recruits that will not fit in at Michigan and other large schools, but might be perfect for our program. A suggestion to a recruit to take a look at ODU might go a long way.

RE: Times have changed
Was the camp open to the public? The paper, I believe, has done something on this in the past. They're under no obligation to do something every year. Given the present state of the region's two papers, and where they seem to be headed, I'm not surprised. And here's a story dated May 2018, courtesy VP:

The new car smell doesn’t hang around forever, it’s up to the driver of this car to make it worth riding in years after it’s no longer new

Esports industry is growing and investors see it. Some colleges are now offering scholarships for esports.

I have played around with the idea to see if ODU would be interested in starting up a League of Legends team that I could coach and/or help establish, but I would probably have to quit my day job and I'm not THAT good. One can dream.

The reason esports allows for people to make a career of it, these young kids want to watch it. They don't wanna watch you destroy with Bo Jackson and Christian Okoye.

I think I’ve done a complete lap around the field before running it in with Bo Jackson in that game. Nobody can catch him.

There is (was?) a YouTube video where Bo Jackson took the first snap of the game and ran around the field for the entire quarter before finally scoring.

I drove my kid brother crazy with Bo!! Here is the vid of Bo running around the whole quarter.
