In the FCS Huddle: Football rocking on, off the field at ODU

Norfolk, VA (Sports Network) - For 59 years, a hidden gem was sitting at the corner of 49th Street and Hampton Boulevard here in Norfolk.

Opened in 1936, built by the Public Works Administration and part of Franklin Delano Roosevelt's "New Deal," Foreman Field was intended to host the Norfolk Division of the College of William & Mary football team.

However, the school's status as a two-year institution - at a time when NCAA rules didn't allow freshman to play - and a growing debt disbanded the football program after the 1941 season.

The next 59 years weren't bad, the venue and its two clamshell-shaped grandstands witnessed concerts, hosted the Oyster Bowl and saw the Old Dominion field hockey program win multiple NCAA championships.

However, Foreman Field - now Foreman Field at S.B. Ballard Stadium - never lived up to its intended purpose: a showcase for Norfolk Division of the College of William & Mary football.

That all changed when Old Dominion (which is no longer a division of William & Mary) started a football program in time for the 2009 season.

First, the historic venue got a $25 million facelift, adding field turf and a new game-day building behind the south end zone. Then excitement around the program flourished, as the 26 luxury suites sold out in a matter of minutes and the more than 14,000 season ticket holders rival that of programs like Montana and Delaware - two teams that have a long storied history in the FCS.

Nestled in the heart of the Hampton Roads-area - the largest media market without a major professional sports team - Old Dominion football is more than your typical start-up program.

"It's phenomenal - we've played now 17 home games, all sellouts," Monarch coach Bobby Wilder said. "It's always sold out, there are people on top of that garage over there, it's the hottest ticket in town."

Saturday, the gem that is Foreman Field got a little bit more luster, as Old Dominion played its first-ever home game as a member or the Colonial Athletic Association.

While the atmosphere was rocking from the "Monarch March" before the game to the opening kick-off, the night was made complete by an Old Dominion victory.

"This was the biggest game in our program's history," Wilder said. "We needed to win this game and I'm very proud of how the guys responded with that type of adversity."

Playing traditional CAA power - and future FBS member - Massachusetts, the Monarchs came out an delivered the home crowd a 48-33 victory.

Joining the toughest conference in the FCS, few people expected the Monarchs to be competitive in their first season of CAA play, but after a close loss to Delaware last week and Saturday's performance against the Minutemen, Old Dominion is starting to turn some heads.

While the offense and defense each had their moments for the Monarchs, it was the special teams that had the biggest impact.

In addition to keeping the ball away from Massachusetts's dangerous return man Jesse Julmiste and converting on a fake extra point for a two-point conversion, the special teams unit seemed to set the tone that the Monarchs are ready for the CAA.

After hitting 43-yard field goal on their opening drive, the Monarchs stunned Massachusetts with an onside kick, using the momentum to take a 25-0 lead.

"We went into this game very aggressive," Wilder said. "We had a mindset that if we saw something, we were going to take it. And right from our first time kicking off, we saw that if we could get over their front wall, we could recover it.

"That's kind of the mindset we have with our team. We call our special teams our all-star team, and everybody on our team has to be on a special team. It doesn't matter if you're a starter, captain or been a four-year player, you are still on a special team. You don't play for Old Dominion until you play for a special teams."

But, Massachusetts battled back - the way many CAA teams are capable - and took a 26-25 lead in the third quarter, until Old Dominion's special teams once again turned the tide.

With the Minutemen punting out of their own end zone, Old Dominion's Jawkwail Bailey blocked the kick out of the back of the end zone for a safety, giving momentum back to the Monarchs.

"Before the play, Coach told us we were gonna go for the block. I knew I was key to get a block this week," Bailey said. "The punt block was just something to change the game, get us the lead and let us turn the game around."

After Bailey's block, Old Dominion scored 21 straight points, with its backup quarterback running the offense.

Coming in for the injured Thomas DeMarco, freshman Taylor Heinicke completed 8-of-11 passes, for 119 yards and two touchdowns. They were even more impressive numbers when you consider how the young quarterback felt when he heard DeMarco wouldn't return for the second half.

"I started getting nervous, my throat starting quenching and I thought I was going to throw up," Heinicke said.

But, Heinicke settled down, completing his first pass - a 7-yard hitch route to Prentice Gill - and started to read the defense, looking like a veteran when he found Larry Pinkard for a 38-yard strike and then again when connected with Reid Evans for a 56-yard touchdown.

With depth and special teams on display, the Monarchs seem to be on the right track when it comes to competing in the CAA and, more importantly, turning Foreman Field, which was once an after-thought on campus, into the marquee attraction.
