Yeah, but not for NBA. For improv. theatre, specializing in pratfalls.

Western landed a big W today against #15 Wisconsin. Our next two games are shaping up to be heavyweight prize fights.

RE: ODU vs Herd
This is good because of that new pod system in the CUSA, we’ll be seeing a lot of WKU and Marshall near the season’s end

They talked about late 2nd round as a possibility, but it seems he will have to really turn it on for that to happen.

Agree - hopefully the fans step up in their stead.

ODU needs to go in to high gear marketing the next two games. Something along the lines of both games for $20. If we are fortunate enough to win against the thundering turd, then a prime time Saturday game against western should be sold out and rocking at the same level as a feces game (minus the feces fans).
They had a deal on conference games for something like $10 a few weeks ago but I think it expired.

“If ODU wins both, expect the Monarchs to break into the Top 25, or at least get close. More importantly, victories in both games would make ODU the Conference USA favorite.”

Wow perhaps in the Top 25? Interesting

IF we were able to win those two, that would be ten straight W’s. Folks would notice that. Wish these games weren’t right after we have had such a long break. Hope we are really sharp at the start of the Marshall game.

I don’t want to say no chance but I also don’t want to say chance. ODU has no votes in either poll. Beating Marshall and WKU might get them votes but it would take an absolute nightmare week for the lower ranked teams and the others receiving votes teams to even have a half a hope of it happening.

The last time we got ranked was after a UNCC win, and it was a similar situation. We catapulted into the top 25 based on our win streak, coupled w/quality wins against LSU, etc. I think it’s definitely possible, especially with WKU dropping Wisconsin. Winning the next two would represent additional high quality wins and would put us on a ten game win streak. I hope we get the chance to find out - both games are going to be tough.

RE: ODU vs Herd
The only 3-loss team in the top 25 is UNC. I seriously doubt winning both does anything but maybe get us a few token votes. WKU and Marshall are ranked 122 and 127 in the NET ratings, respectively. While us fans know what they are capable of, beating them at home won't impress the writers that much.

Well, someone on reddit ranked us, so that's neat I guess.

I think we will win, but ESPN is giving us more love than I would have expected.

Matchup Predictor
MRSH 23.6%
ODU 76.4%
Based on ESPN's Basketball Power Index

Kenpom:
ODU 73
Marshall 129

EDIT: These numbers will change after today's game, Marshall @ UVA - 1PM

If Jon Elmore was on my team at the red center, I’d want to fight him for taking some of the shots he takes and then basically not wanting to play defense.

RE: ODU vs Herd
The obligatory stock question, was UVA that good or Marshall that bad?
My answer is, it doesn't matter.

The more important question is, how does that game affect the Herd's motivation vs ODU?

Back to back road blowouts. Need to step on their throat and make it 3 in a row.

U. Va. is good, but Marshall is much better than what they've shown so far this season.

Our guys better had treat this as a big-time challenge or we could all be feeling pretty deflated going into the WKU game.
