Default We're Favored By 16?

What crackhead comes up with these lines? I know the sportslines are set to generate equal amounts of action from both sides but for goodness sake does anyone in their right mind think we are 16 points better than ECU? If someone wants to give me ECU and 16 PM me, I'll take that action all day.

Translation: "I think the people really believe we're that much better than ECU and I agree, but I want reassurance from fellow fans."

Or maybe you really are trying to get someone to bet with you?

If you really feel that way,why does one of us need to bet you? That's the line in Vegas. If you want to bet get on the phone.

Ok....So what do you want, or expect anyone to say in reponse? I mean, we can all make predictions, and some are gonna be right, and some are not. Personally, I think that Carolina will cover the spread.

I just think after watching last weeks performance that that spread seems ridiculously high to me, that's all I'm trying to say. IMO it should be more along the lines of 6-8 points.

Spreads are to entice people to bet, not an evaluation of what the game will end up being.

I'm not sure if anyone picked up on this comment. Of course Carolina will cover. Although it's obvious that Carolina will also not cover. Ya'll can debate on which Carolina is East and which is South.

Is this a rhetorical question or are we actually supposed to give an answer?

You're basing the outcome on last week's game against A&M.

Trust me...we cover. ECU's defense sucks worse then a $5 whore on Bourbon Street.

ECU gave up an avg 28 pts per game in in last 6 games of 2013

Lost 5 of their top 8 linebackers

Lost their top 3 safeties

D was ranked 88th against the pass

I can post more, but think you get the idea. This game will only be close (+/- 14 pts) because of your offense.

Sounds like the same mess people were saying to about Texas A&M's defense right before they pantsed us in front of the entire country. I am sorry, but people thinking we are winning this game are going by nothing more than BLIND FAITH.

Yeah blind faith, the last 3 years mean nothing, playing a very good SEC team compared to a very good AAC team as well as the history between the 2 teams it is all blind faith....You should jump on that bandwagon and bet with the young man, that is 2 houses you can put up...
