Enjoy your time in the middle echelon of the top 25 Pirate fans. I'm sure this year, like every other, you're beloved team will find a way to lose to an unranked and not highly regarded conference foe. I'll not exert myself in figuring out which one. As for your belittlement of the Heels, it's your right. Too bad your sentiment is misplaced. I, for one, hope you one day get consideration for acceptance into a more respected conference. Perhaps improvement of your basketball programs will help your chances. As for your game Sat., I'm hoping NCSU wins. It's like choosing between the mumps and measles, though.
Qualifier crap. If it weren't for State being in a BCS league, they wouldn't be......Oh wait, y'all are in a BCS league and you're not even competitive one bit. Well except to a 1-AA school. If ECU has an unfair advantage being in a non-BCS leauge, we should be able to get some accept some NQ to even things out. But besides that point, our best players were 1 or 2 star players coming out of high school.
We are big on UNC football game not basketball......
Beat YA tech
Go big blue!!!!!!!
If it weren't for Non-Qualifier's ECU wouldn't even be competitive. Palmer, Setzer, Hands, Bryant, etc. couldn't qualify at any of the schools that they committed to, therefore they now call EZU home.
State will end all the EZU hype this Saturday.
weak games so far and I think VT will redefine who UNC really is. As far as Carlton goes, trade in your ECU diploma and I'm sure we will be glad to give you a fake UNC diploma in exchange. That way your coverage and attention will fit with the diploma you can hang on your wall in the office.
UNC is basketball only and will always be that way. Wine and cheese doesn't fit with beer and wings. NC will always need ECU and NCSU to tag football with N.C.
Good luck VT, the Pirate Nation is behind you!
I'm guessing "Carlton" has a thick enough skin to survive your taunts.
so much anger built up towards UNC? It terrible, you guys act like babys! I'm a UNC fan and i still pull for ECU when they aren't playing each other. Do you guys have a Napolean complex or something? And to say that UNC will always be a basketball school is ridiculous. Before Mack left football was the sport at UNC. Football team was rolling and Top 10 program and the basketball team was begining the transition from Dean and fell off for a couple years! Your theory is uneducated! It like saying ECU will always be a Teaching School! Grow up people!
typical EZU fan...your team wins a few and all of a sudden you're a football expert. we'll see if you're talking that trash once you come back from Raleigh with your first "L".
Losing.... seems to be something you UNC and NCS fans have become accustomed. ECU tried to gift wrap it for both of you last year. Still..... both losers for the season.
Last time EITHER of you went to a bowl game.... unleaded gas was $1.80 !!!!!
If you think the wolfpack are on par with the pirates you are crazy. The only way they will win is if ECU beats theirself. Even with 4 turnovers last week we managed to get the W. Don't think we aren't ready to tear down your goal posts again.....only this time after we blank you....
Fans that act like jackasses are either immature jerks or just folks that use any excuses (wins/losses) to express their own misery. The true Pirate fan will act like "We've been there before" if we win. Same for Pack fans. The idiots are always putting down the other school's team and fans. Every school has classy and assy fans. It's time for ECU fans to stop acting like they- and their team- are inferior by over-celebrating with wins against their "bigger-brothers." For all, I say win with class and lose with class; show respect and remember it's a game.
