I'm totally on board with pushing the season back to the spring or 2021. Playing a closed-door season would suck. Potentially having home games with Wake and uva canceled is a very real possibility currently that I'm really not thrilled about.

It is almost certain the football season will be moved to Spring:

Id be fine with spring football. It might even be fun if they start before it gets brutally hot.

I'll take spring football over no football in a heart beat. Not sure how you'd pivot back to the fall afterwards.

Pelosi might as well advance a bill in congress that Americans shall not have any fun and nobody shall be educated until after the election.

This is ridiculous.

Don't forget, from that mindset, remember the Animal Farm credo, "All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others".

Yes, you’ll also be muted unless you have a question and they call on you. I’m ready for the next one, the last one was pretty good.

Anyone know, or heard, if the season ticket deadline on July 23rd will get pushed back again?

RE: Are You Ready For Some Football?
Does everyone realize that this FB season, whether played or not, is a figment of our imagination??

If you do not renew your season tickets this year, you will STILL GET THOSE SEATS NEXT YEAR!! When we receive our FB ticket renewals next spring for the 2021-2022 it will reflect our seats and seat license fees that were "on the books" at the end of LAST season (2019-2020).

Poor Ryan at the ticket office had t0 repeat it umpteen times and I'm still flabbergasted!

The conversation started with me asking what the Hell did the sentence, paraphrased, in the email announcing July 24th as the ticket deadline....."Don't worry if you don't feel comfortable renewing your seats this year. You will not lose your seat location!"

Just in case we play football sometime this year or next, here are some dire predictions and forecasts for ODU football. I hope we catch people by surprise:

Our secondary could be top notch. There is some talent at DL and the LB core is stout. If the DC is decent and can make this group mesh, we could have a really good defense.

The success of the team will depend if we have competent QB play this year.

Agreed. If the new Defensive coaching staff can grow on some of the good things Blackwell was doing- the D could be good enough to make up for any offensive shortcomings. Kicking game should be solid as well.

I'm thinking 7-5 if Slade can play and Kumah stays healthy. 5-7 if not.

Let’s say we do play football sometimes this year. What are the odds slade gets a waiver/ when would find out?

Next question, would the players be granted a year of eligibility if they do not play?

I would think the players have to be granted another year. But what does that do to incoming recruits? They'd have to expand the roster for four years. And G5 schools likely cant afford the extra expense of another 10-20 student athletes.

If we hit 5-7 without Slade, I'd be rather happy with that turnaround.
