RE: Marshall weekend
I was on the road and couldn’t watch the game but listened to the radio broadcast. Kinda glad I didn’t see it. I don’t think I’ll watch the replay. We had an exceptional 2nd half last night and the guys played with heart, but today seems like back to normal. Will Curry & Oliver be back for Wednesday?

Typical team....Had a chance to stay tied for first and lacked motivation and desire. What are Curry and Oliver out ? Never saw official announcement.

Seems obvious that those 2 and Shanu tested positive. Privacy laws preclude schools naming individuals, so no specific announcement.

RE: Marshall weekend
Marshall completely dominated us from the opening tip. I honestly don’t think it would have made any difference if we were at full strength. They have 3 point shooters and height down low. We have neither. This game also revealed our Division II depth. I’ve followed ODU BB since the 70’s and this is an all time low in my view and we’re apparently stuck with the architect of all this because we can’t afford to buy him (JJ) out. About the only good thing is we are prevented from attending games and witnessing this in person.

I don’t think we’ve stuck w JJ because we can’t buy him out. I think it’s because he’s Wood’s buddy. Wood hand selected JJ when everyone else thought it would likely be a disaster. And he doesn’t want to admit he was wrong or hurt his friend. Honestly, Jeff has actually been better than I feared. But that’s not necessarily good since it adds some rationale to why Wood keeps him around.

Hopefully these A10 rumors are true. I think we’d have a much better coaching pool to hire from moving into that conference.

Lucked into a ticket last night. Right behind D'Antoni. Told us he needs a hip replacement.

Whatever advantages derived from going A10 for BB are more than wiped out by going FBS independent for FB. And FB is much more important to ODU than BB. There’s a reason why there is only 5 FBS independents. That would be a complete disaster. Ask UMass how much they like it. Why destroy FB by changing conferences when we could simply change the BB HC? I am more hopeful that a new President will make a change at AD to solve our problems more so than moving to the A10.

The alliance would basically be a de facto FBS conference with Army, UConn, UMass, Liberty and UNCC (and maybe JMU) If we could get a couple bowl affiliations I don’t see how it’s any worse than CUSA in FB and we’d be much better off in every other regard.
