True: ODU doubled their athletics fees when they started football.
His list is getting as big and long as my, well, you know.....
love all the basketball upgrades. overall, I would love to see us go with an Oakland A's color scheme, ditch the star-only and a cleaner look with our logo. Not a fan of the wave patterns seen on the branded-bus, the tarps covering the seats in the corner of the arena, the walls on each side of the pull-out bleachers, wind fences used at outside athletic facilities, etc.
Does that include the medical school?
Like compromising a student's financial debt comfort?
I'm sure that's mostly the medical school's endowment.
It’s a shame athletic directors don’t get shown the love the way players and coaches do. Edwards has done an enormous amount of work in such a short time. It’s a shame we’ll lose him at some point.
I think we need to write the administration and have his contract beefed up. I don't want to lose him.
A Jollay approach would be to deliver a bevy of hookers and bourbon to his office every other Thursday.
Maybe give him a Porsche.
Agreed - the man has brought a vision and discipline to the AD.
Hey P8, are you impressed yet?!?!
I think no matter what we do he’s gone after we get back to the tourney. He’s a football guy, he’ll get an offer from a decent P5 school that can afford to pay him beyond what we could even on a bumper contract. Not a knock on him, I’d leave too. He’s not a Mason alum. He’s given us a ton and owes us nothing.
It's doubtful we get better than the Cabrera/Edwards/Paulsen team. We can only bump Edwards up so much. Unfortunately, we just don't have the income to compete with a P5 school. So let's just enjoy this as much as we can for the next few years. Worse case scenario Edwards raised the bar around here, so the next person will have big shoes to fill. Unlike the shoes Edward's had to fill.
But he is a Redskin alum.
Why on earth would he want to go to that loser organization and by Danny's yes man?
Wasnt implying that. But who knows. More resources for him being in redskin country, as an alum, working for Mason. Who knows, maybe he brings big time football here bc of his skins connection.
In general I would agree - just thinking if we could sweeten the pot a bit more to extend him a couple more years.
Dude what is that a picture of???

Maybe once we get football we can afford to keep Edwards!! Haha
Unfortunately, non-P5 schools usually can't afford football.
Does odu have same AD tgat brought football there?
UMass AD swimming in football debt right now.
ODU's AD is Wood Selig. He's been there since 2010.
ODU is pulling 220K on it’s media rights deal in an FBS conference. Do the math on that situation.
