Bobby Wilder: Never tell me the odds

In one more must win situation, ODU's head football coach is full of optimism about the Monarchs chances at bowl eligibility.

It was Han Solo who once famously said, "Never tell me the odds." You can call ODU's Bobby Wilder a fan of that approach.

The Monarchs are 12 point underdogs in a must win game this Saturday against Middle Tennessee. When we reminded Wilder of that movie line from Star Wars he said, "I agree with Han Solo, don't ever tell me the odds. I also agree with Jim Carrey from Dumb and Dumber, 'So you're saying there's a chance.' That's what we think we have. We have a chance."

If they can come through with that chance, they'll be bowl eligible with 6 wins.

Of course, it was a month ago the Monarchs were suffering through a 6 game losing streak. But after winning three straight must win games they sit at (5-6) headed into their last game in Murfreesboro, TN.
