We need to beat Liberty and ECU. If we do that and win the games we are suppose to win in CUSA, that will be a successful season. From a recruiting perspective wins against Liberty and ECU are MUSTS !

VT, MT,FAU and Marshall are the only games that fit the bill this year. Hope we can steal one of them.

RE: Will this finally be the year?
I feel like this is the year we show we belong at the FBS level. Everyone seems to think Liberty could beat us, because they beat Baylor in 2017. Last year anyone could have beat Baylor. (Just a thought, everyone beat UNC too, but we loss to them... bad) If we don't make the games we should lose fun to watch at least come out with a win in a few of them, I'm thinking coaching change or go back to FCS level and play.

Stomping Liberty and beating ECU would make it an extremely successful season. Beating ECU would be a HUGE statement win - it cannot be understated. It would put us on their level and make it an instant rivalry - whether they like it or not. And I’m sure Liberty is thinking the same thing with their game against us.

The Pirates have an extremely rich history. We would be fortunate to be on their level (even for a year). I do not expect to win the game and would be ecstatic if we do. This would be the biggest win in ODU’s history. Anyone thinking this is an easy win is kidding themselves.

Please don't introduce facts that don't fit the narrative.

MTSU, App State, WKU, Marshall, NC State....all ass whoppings except a couple of games.

And along the way we kicked some ass pretty damn good when we were supposed to win. Exactly what is your point? You know, there is usually a pretty damn good reason when we are the underdog going into a game. There is a consensus of opinion, backed by money, that the other team is better than we are! SMH -- frustrating! C'mon Big Blue. Get a grip.

The moment we accept ass whoppings like we got or rationalize them we are accepting mediocrity. That is not something I will support.

Regardless, it's not germane to the OP's question. OP asked if this will this be the year we beat someone we're not supposed to (well, 'too', but whatever) which as Giles pointed out happened multiple times, most recently last year:

Saturday 11/11/17 @ Florida International W 37-30 Week 11 +10
Saturday 11/12/16 Southern Mississip W 51-35 Week 11 + 1
Saturday 11/07/15 @ Texas-San Antonio W 36-31 Week 10 +7.5
Saturday 11/29/14 @ Florida Atlantic W 31-28 Week 14 +3.5
Saturday 11/22/14 Louisiana Tech W 30-27 Week 13 +12.5
Saturday 09/20/14 @ Rice W 45-42 Week 4 + 6.5

I suspect there are more, but that's as far back as covers.com went.


If you'd like to make YOUR point, please start a "Will this be the year we win every game?" thread or maybe "Will this be the year we win where we are 13pt+ underdogs?" thread. Otherwise, we'll just assume you're here only to talk **** on ODU's athletic teams without regard to facts. Thanks!

Will this be the year we beat Liberty and ECU and go to a bowl? If
So, I will call that an excellent year. Even if we lose the bowl.

Four weeks out from opening day, let’s just stay focused on dishing out some whoppins. Next = flames. Let’s properly open up their renovated venue.

RE ECU, everything I've read says they are most likely in for another down year, somewhere between 3-9 and 5-7. We play them at home, but after they go through the gauntlet of UNC/VT/USF. Maybe they'll lose 15 players like we did at that point last year...

Right now, we're about even on the ESPN RFI. We return a lot of defensive players, hopefully Stevie's feeling his oats and we make a little of our own luck. Def a winnable game from what I can see at this point, but I'll hedge a little and say let's talk a little closer to the end of camp and see where we are.

RE: Will this finally be the year?
I disagree that beating Liberty automatically makes it a successful year.

Same with beating ECU.

I would not call 2-10 successful.

I will, however, agree with Grommet and Giles that the title of this thread is kind of silly and our memories must be incredibly short. We have definitely beat teams we weren't supposed to. We proved we belong in FBS, despite some blowouts against us. Will this finally be the year we don't get blown out? Hope so.

A successful year to me is a bowl game. I'm not predicting 6 wins, but I'm bracing myself to be pleasantly surprised. I really hope SW is ready.

Ya, we belong and that isn't in question. Will we finally start having the depth of talent going forward to not get our asses handed to us by the good teams is the question.
