Does this include basketball, which starts later in the fall, or only the early fall sports?

So what is the NCAA going to do about edibility? Give another year?
This could really help this team in the long run.

This. Why did we have to be the 2nd FBS program to cancel the season. Wait it out. Within the next week, everything will likely be cancelled?

Maybe ODU should just drop back to FCS. Never that competitive in FBS in the first place.

Wood is on the hot seat. Cancelling due to COVID gives him an excuse for the upcoming financial disaster. Zero risk.

It probably helps mitigate the financial losses. We wouldn't be getting much revenue for playing this year but all the costs.

Breaks a 15-year silence to make a weak jab at ODU. Color me impressed, didn't know we meant that much to you.

Wood asked us to convert our season tickets to donations for this year but will he be willing to convert some of his salary to donations

Guess that depends, but it certainly mitigates all risks.

RE: ODU Will Not Play Athletics This Fall, Postpones Fall Sports
I think we all knew -- at least somewhere in the nether regions of our minds -- that Monarch football was not going to be played this fall. I fully expect C-USA to shut it down soon. We can only hope that some time early next year, we will be able to watch our Monarchs in the first ever (and hopefully last) spring football season.

Cheers, all!

They're going to have to have some across the board cuts in the AD. Haven't seen any details but if he's not taking a substantial pay cut then get your pitchforks ready.

Announcing before CUSA is very, very interesting to me. Outside of that this was expected

RE: ODU Will Not Play Athletics This Fall, Postpones Fall Sports
My guess is that, like Hampton (we presume) with the Big South and Northern Illinois with the MAC, ODU flagged its intentions to CUSA and had their blessing to shut down. Despite the caterwauling of some of our friends on the CUSA board, there's not going to be relevant blowback from making a move that in large part is borne of safety, and one that the Ivy and Big 10 have made. ODU has obligations to their conference, but they have bigger ones to their students, faculty, staff and community. They have to do what's best for them. Given that most schools in Virginia have shut down fall sports (I think UVa., VT, Liberty, Radford, Longwood and VMI are the holdouts), they're far from the only regional school making that decision.

Correct. Nationally, schools are prepping as if both MBB/WBB will go as scheduled. My call is that you will see schools hold off on decisions until October, similar to the late July/early August developments with FB.

RE: ODU Will Not Play Athletics This Fall, Postpones Fall Sports
I think odu did not do well here. If conference usa plays,which they are planning to do or odu would not have went rogue, I think it WILL hurt our recruting,our image and our relationships with other cusa schools,I understand why but do not understand the rogue decision. I personally think the football team will either be cut or go back to colonial because of costs. I hate it but why else would they break from cusa on this. Odu must be hurting for money and it will only get worse. Writing is on the wall. I hope I'm wrong. Do not want to be Idaho and go backwards. Don't want us playing stoney brook,delaware,albany, or any other small school. I will be forever turned off and I think you guys will too. It's coming. God,I hope I'm wrong.
