One guy who rates teams in Va, has ODU behind VMI. That's pretty far down, but I don't think it's the bottom. Still ahead of NSU and DII schools.

I think Liberty should be switched with JMU, and VMI should be behind ODU. Otherwise, I think its pretty accurate. Sad, I figured once we went FBS we'd almost always be third, with a chance at second (and dared to dream on rare occasion first) every now and then.

Getting closer, according to CBS we're the 11th worst team in the country. If we lose to UAB, I think we'll make the bottom 10. Breaking new ground! Aim High.

If this CBS poll doesn't say anything about the non strength of CUSA, nothing does! SIX, yes I said SIX (6) of the bottom 25 are CUSA schools. Hell, we're a group of bottom feeders if you want to tell it like it is. Maybe we should form a new FCS league and call it a day!!!! I love playing VT/UVA/UNC, etc, but you have to be competitive. Can someone in power get his/her head out of their a** and realize CUSA was a huge mistake and take steps to fix the problem, even if it means (forgive me!) going back to FCS level playing schools we care about and can travel to.

Quite literally the only FCS school we care about even remotely today is JMU. W&M and Richmond were fine to play in FCS but does anyone really want to dramatically alter the course of the program to be conference-mates with them again? Who the hell else is in CAA that we'd care about? Maybe Delaware? Otherwise it's a lot of eh or yeech, unless you really miss Towson, Maine and Rhode Island and dream of a world where we've got yearly dates with Albany and Elon.

If you think CUSA is the problem (and not just the symptom of other problems, here and in college athletics writ large), then you're better off praying a sinkhole envelops Kornhole Field during the offseason and it's insured for triple its value. Presuming that football is here to stay, better to play it at the best possible level than pissing off back to the CAA.

03-thumbsup

What really would make sense, but will never happen, is for CUSA and Sunbelt to combine schools and geographically divide into 2 new (call 'em what you want) conferences. Eliminate the ridiculous travel, save travel money, and play a more regional schedule. Another thought which is not new would be form a new conference with ODU, ECU, JMU, and Navy as the base, then fill in around. Neither will ever happen because egos are too big.

We finally entered the Bottom 10 this week from Ryan McGee on ESPN.

RE: What week will ODU enter the "Bottom 10"? Or will they?
I'm scratching my head wondering, how the hell can we be one of the 10 worst teams in the nation out of 130? When you look at the company we are keeping in that position it really is disgusting given the support, fanbase (although dwindling), and athlete rich "757", I just don't get it. I'm not expecting the team to be Top 25, but damn, I don't expect to be a total bottom feeder below some of the programs I consider laughable. Enough rant. I hope this gets fixed from the top down.04-chairshot

Wow we go from beating VMI 77-14 and this year they are ranked higher than us. Shows you what a stupid a$$ idiot that guy is.

But I thank the stars we got NSU and not some better FCS team, or we'd be staring 0-12 right in the eyes.


Please dear sweet 8lb 6oz baby Jesus do not let a win over Norfolk State be what allows Bobby to keep his job!

I don't know if I'd bet on us beating VMI right now. If I did, it might be a 6-pack of Bud Light, something tasteless and irrelevant.

Better late than never. ESPN has us the #7 worst team in the country in the Bottom 10. New name: Old the-Minions. We're also one of three CUSA teams in the bottom 10, but we're the best one. Maybe BW will brag about that.

So....as I've said on multiple occasions, CUSA is a bottom feeding conference. Whatever we need to do in order to leave we should do, even moving back to FCS Football would be better. Get rid of 3000 mile trips to nowhere, cut costs, and have more fun.
Let it be said, let something be done!!

We played too well against UTSA and wound up dropping out of ESPNs bottom 10 this week. A bye week should keep us out, but a whooping by MTSU likely gets us back in the rankings.

Meanwhile CBS still has us ranked the #6 worst team in FBS.
