Last season ODU went 1-4 against FBS competition as part of their FCS-FBS transition stage. This year they open with Hampton (FCS) and then play eleven consecutive FBS games to close the season.
One win in five games translates to roughly a 3-9 season over twelve games. That’s not too far off of what some
athletic directors handicappers and observers project the Monarchs to yield this season.
It’s somewhat of a mystery as to how ODU will navigate a full FBS schedule. Who better to point out many of the keys other than me. Someone who has never played college football.
I’ll avoid the obvious Bleacher Report analysis such as injury concerns and attempt to get to the real keys to the season.
Beat Hampton and Eastern Michigan…convincingly
