CUSA is always mentioned in the poll, consistently every single week. Pretty sure that at least half of CUSA schools have been on it in the last few years. Rice, UTSA, UTEP, Charlotte, FIU, FAU are the ones coming to mind right now.

More often than not, all of the G5 conferences have at least one representative of the nine non-joke selections. This week, CUSA has 2 and the others 1 apiece.

I hope that article is hanging on the wall in the locker room, and in the coaches offices as well. That ranking was entirely deserved for one of the worst football performances I have seen by ODU. Results 52, Talk 10, enough said.

Exactly. They earned this.

The author lives in Charlotte, so he is in a good location to see a lot of C-USA football (unfortunately?). There are usually a couple of Carolina teams lurking around his rankings as well. I get the feeling he is going to be provided with a lot of fodder for his articles this year without having to look too far.

If we have any more games like the last one, the articles (as they relate to us) will write themselves.

ODU actually moved down (up?) two spots to 10. The Charlotte game is the Pillow Fight of the Week. AND a nickname: Old Dumbinion. Hopefully ODU wins so he won't get a crack at creating a funny one.

RE: ESPN Bottom 10
Looks like we gave some really good fodder for the next ranking. I would put us at about 128/130 - how is that for Our Decade Unprecedented. Maybe we should get a good theme song ..... perhaps Pink Floyd's "just another brick in the wall"?

BOR (Beginning of RANT), Also, I'm not interested in hearing that you can't criticize the team - which somehow gets caught up as an 'attack' on individual players -- got to call it like it is, this is not "no team left behind" - If I performed by job like the team is performing, I don't think there would be a millisecond of hesitation to point it out. Wilder gets way too much $$$ to put a product on the field like he does (WS is right in line). I work hard for the $$$ that I donate to ODAF, and I think it is reasonable that those $$$$ are earned with a commensurate effort by coaches and players. I don't expect to win every game, but I also don't expect to see what appears as a poorly coached, prepared, and delivered product on game day. EOR (End of RANT).

Enough, let's hope that we do not get totally embarrassed against VT -- I hope the team goes out there loose and lets it fly -- nothing to lose -- not a person, bookie, or football observer expects ODU to win, so how about give a game effort to remember??

The saddest part of this start is what has happened to the perception of next week's VT game. By all accounts, I fully expected to be 3-0 (2-1 at worst) with a decent team and a chance to compete with a nationally ranked team at home.

In just three weeks, the ODU-VT matchup has turned from the game we've all been waiting for to the game no one wants to see.

It may not be as bad as all that. Tech's ranking is based in part on it's dominance of FSU.
I am watching FSU right now
Quite frankly, they are lacking as they are getting pushed around by Syracuse.

Harry also just tweeted about Temple putting it to the Terps. The same team that lost to Nova at home. Ya never know. Maybe it takes a VT game to get everyone on the same page? I would love nothing more than to be proven wrong but I think we see VT's 3rd string by half.

Don't want to be a Debbie but that my friend is as likely as Florence hitting Atlanta so go get your self some chicken if you are craving a bird because you certainly won't be tasting the crow.
