Loyalty, East Carolina and Dave Odom have rarely been mentioned in
the same sentence. You might recall that he left us on the spur of the moment to take an assistant coaching job at Virginia under Terry Holland. He did well there and later coached Wake Forest to some great years. Not so good later on at South Carolina however. Caulton Tudor talked once about what a great coach Dave was. I called Caulton on it. Even though Caulton was a Pirate he told me that no one won at East Carolina. What I recall about Dave is he left us high and dry and didn't win a lot of games.
