Any particular reason?

Because our FB team isn't very good and JMU would have a great chance at beating us. Who would want to see that?

JMU football would very likely beat us this year. That shouldn't be the case for much longer (new coach and all), or frequently, but this year I bet we'd lose by 10+.

RE: JMU vs ODU - Wed 11/20, 7:00pm
I do prefer ODU to be in the best conference possible with the strongest peers possible. For right now, the most realistic chance of another progression for our sports would be the American. However, if we don't get in then I've had it playing far-flung schools. Especially when we are still in a one bid conference. Until we get to a better conference, these games against old CAA foes are the highlight of the season to me (besides beating a ranked squad, pod play, post-season).
I don't want to join the CAA of today, but if we could join a decent regional league including former CAA peers then I'm all in.(like a reorganized A10?)
Building a new facility does not mean a team will get better. Our new football stadium and our disaster of a season is enough proof of that. However, I think JMU getting a nice new home will help their program.

I think part of JMU's basketball attendance issues are that their arena is across the highway and not near where thier students live and go to class. The football stadium is in the middle of campus and is a focal point.

WKU, Marshall, MT, UAB, Charlotte

I'd rather play these teams than anyone left in the CAA. Richmond and VCU are better but we're not joining the A10 and play them OOC anyway.

We've had some good games with LT and UTEP as well. The best thing that could happen to CUSA IMO is the MWC come in and take all 4 TX teams. Wishful thinking though.

JMUs recruiting will pick up once the arena is open. Just like our football recruiting is. They'll likely fire Rowe, just like we will likely fire Bobby. I think the future is bright for ODU football and JMU hoops.

Yeah, a conference centered around us, WKY, Marshall, MTSU, UAB, and Charlotte would be awesome. Obviously add some others (App State, Coastal, etc.)

Might never happen, but would be cool.

Cut out Texas and Florida.

It would be cool. Add in Ga St, Libery and JMU and its not a bad conference.

A 3-1 squad facing an old CAA rival is worth a strong turn out. I hope the Ted is packed tomorrow night! Anything less than 7K will be disappointing.

There will be a lot of JMU fans there. So we should hit 7K easily.

Looking forward to this game. Expecting a fairly close game, I’m thinking JMU is gonna be primed for this one. Hopefully we are too. Who knows but I’m seeing something like a 69-61 Monarch victory.

I'm actually pretty attached to C-USA. We've seen some great completion. The AAC is a good goal to shoot for...

I love what Joe Reece has brought to this team this year. I am thinking that he will play a huge role next season. Need to keep getting him minutes and experience, because he can be really good with confidence.

I too do not mind the CUSA games and I think we actually have some decent rivalries with a few teams. I pretty much loathe WKU, MTSU, and UAB. Most of the teams in CUSA are WAY underrated, in my opinion. What sucks, is that there is no way for most fans to make it to any in conference away games. So there is no way to take your passion and express it anywhere but in message boards...but I am preaching to the choir

Serious question. What have you seen in Reece that makes you optimistic about his game?

Athleticism. He has very little game experience, and looks to be a good defender. I think he has a really bright future.

The thing that bugs me the most about the conference is its Texas bias. If we were part of a conference that was centered around the east coast I'd be happier. But it is what it is. This conference has a lot of potential if all the teams can put it together. UTEP is finally good again, but now UAB might be falling apart. UTSA has been a disaster. It's just this way every year.

I'm with you. He has the looks of a really good player if he can get comfortable out there. His length and athleticism are not combinations that you see at our level everyday. If he can pile more skill (I think he is fairly skilled already), understanding of the game, and confidence on top of his God given talent he will be really good.
