With Catholic University leaving the ODAC, and moving to the NEWMAC (New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference), there will be an opening to fill in the ODAC. I have been told by a source at Catholic University that Ferrum and Averett are both being strongly considered as a replacement for the conference.
Many would say that Ferrum would be a good fit for this conference. I am not sure what the criteria would be but I am sure that from an athletic facilities standpoint, Ferrum should be fine. I personally believe that the facilities at Ferrum are comparable to any D3 school in Virginia. I do not know where academics figure into something like this, but as Averett has a graduate program, and a satellite campus, there could be an argument made to favor Averett.
I am not sure if this would be a good move for Ferrum, but with the new travel requirements in the USA South with the addition of Huntingdon and LaGrange, I would think this may be advantageous financially.
I want to know what you think. There is a poll on the right. I hope you will take the poll.
