It's on!

ODU is joining Conference USA!  Great news.  While this certainly isn't the path the Monarchs had in mind to get to the FBS division, it gets them there.

Will there be growing pains?  Yes!
Will the first couple of years be difficult?  Yes!
Will they have some losing seasons?  Unfortunately, yes.  But they will grow and become competitive. 

The plan probably had the Monarchs going up to division one in 2018 but times they are a changing.  And sometimes you have to get on-board or get left behind. 

Per Ed Miller's article"  "Old Dominion will join Virginia and Virginia Tech as the only state schools to compete at the FBS level."


The best part: the chances of ODU playing Navy just got a lot better.
