Norfolk, Va. - ODU Coach Bobby Wilder is revealing his thoughts on the upcoming football season.

"It is to always aim high in this program - that's the philosophy of this program, so we realize we are picked to finish down near the bottom, and we should be," Wilder says.

"We are new to the league, we moved up from FCS to FBS - but the goal of the program, as I told the players, is to always compete for the conference championship and now the bonus you get is the possibility of going to a bowl game, which is something everybody is excited about. I feel like if we can get to the month of November and we've got a shot - if we are in the hunt for a conference championship - that is going to put this program in a great position for the future."
