NORFOLK, Va. — The Old Dominion Monarchs are rebuilding.
It's head coach Ricky Rahne's first year manning the sidelines and a 1-11 season in 2019 somehow got even worse in 2020 when they had no season. There's a lot of work to do, and likely a lot of losses to suffer, before this program reaches its goals.
Within those losses, one to power 5 Wake Forest and one to top 25 caliber Liberty, there have been moments. Plays, drives and quarters that offer a glimpse into the brightest potential future. The next step: full games against the highest level of competition. That takes one thing that has been missing thus far in the Monarch's season...consistency.
They'll get another crack at it this weak, a feisty and talented Buffalo team comes to town. Recent history tells us ODU will do some great things, now the question is, can they do it every moment?
