CUSA is looking pretty good now!

OK.  It's official.  VCU is leaving the CAA to join the Atlantic10.  If that isn't a sign that ODU needs to leave and join the CUSA I don't know what is. 

So far it has been all quiet and no news is probably good news.  ODU has until June 30th to make a decision and if they wait until after June 1 to announce their departure they would still be eligible for the the play-offs.

This decision is rapidly becoming a no-brainer. 
Yes, I know it will be a big change.  Yes, I know it will cost more money for the school.  Yes, I know that Foreman Field is not nearly big enough to support division one ball.  However, these are all things that can be worked through. 

As I recall in Point Break, the great philosopher Bodhi told Johnny Utah: "If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price."

Well, ODU.  If you want to play with the big boys, you have to pay the price.  Working through the growing pains of an expanding football/athletic department is the first step.  

Accept the invitation and start paying the price.
