Know Your Enemy: Old Dominion

BEHEAD THE MONARCHS!!! Thanks to the commenter who posted that. I told you I’d steal it. The Old Dominion Monarchs are coming to town and they’re bringing a lot more talent than you’d expect a FCS team transitioning to FBS would.

2010 scrimmage costs Donte Hill his senior season

When Donte Hill committed to Clemson I doubt his freshman year vision included hardly playing and scoring a total of 32 points on the season. He had been recruited by Oliver Purnell, but then found himself playing under Brad Brownell after Purnell was let go. When his sophomore year rolled around, he planned on staying with the team. But after one scrimmage he changed his mind...

Evaluating DeShawn Painter to Old Dominion
