A lot has changed in 2 years dude. We didnt have our qb until that game and hes started every game since. Your secondary didnt exactly look SEC caliber giving that 10 yard cushion to all of their recievers. We have some big guys catching the ball6'2",6'6", 6'3" and we are deep. Boy you guys forget where you came from, 1999 wasnt that long ago.

I didn't forget where we came from, we have a completely mediocre history. We aren't talking about teams of the past, we are talking about the talent on these teams. I have said earlier that ECU has a good program, it just isn't as good as ECU fans like to believe.

Well will see how everything ends up. The season is young and a great deal can happen. I think we have a very talented team that could surprise no matter the result on sat. Our excitement has nothing to do with nccu we all expected to win and win big.

You kill me, Liz Lemon. I said this "could be" one of the top 5 ECU teams ever and am irrational. Someone else says we "could" win 10 games and go to the Cotton Bowl, and that's a much more rational statement?

Nobody has said we are Alabama but we have a proud program and history that we are proud of. It is about this years teams and players. We have been to a bowl 7 out of the last 8 years. Now that we have taken a step up we have certain expectations that we aspire to reach every year. As far as stars go hardy was a 0 star walkon and he will get drafted in the nfl. We make our living on finding diamonds in the ruff.

Man, you guys are way down. I understand it was an ugly loss, but A&M is an EXCELLENT football team. Vegas seems to agree. I believe will beat ECU by around 20 points.

Of course your going to day that to make your team appear better. They were good but had alot of question marks going in. Who would replace jonny football? Recievers , how would the defense play. No one predicted them to win but they did.

if I was a betting man, I'd take ECU and the points, I think we win, but I dont know if we win by more than 2 tds with a suspect D against a quick pass offense plus spurriers habit of letting off the gas when we get up by 10 or so

Few things from an ECU fan. There is a big talent gap for this game. Any ECU fan saying we match up talent wise is on crack. Its just not to be expected. As far as the comment about this being a top 5 ECU team ever.........not sure I'm buying it but won't say its impossible. A lot of new kids. A lot of kids with huge expectations but beating up on a community college week 1 does not make you a stud team or proven.

1 thing I will say is we started that game out slow. We only had 1 scrimmage this year instead of 2 so we were going to start out a bit rocky period.

I however don't think there is ANY way to say what happens in this game.

Our O line is untested imho. I think you guys get plenty of penetration and that causes issues. VT has always given us headaches because they man up, bump us, and bring heat. From what I've seen Ward does not equal Bud Foster though. I think a big deciding factor will be how physical your db's can get and what the refs let slide. Regardless of what anyone says ECU is going to get a bit of home cookin.

If you guys give 10 yards of cushion all day like you did vs A&M we'll take it.

A few other thoughts.

We both have unexperienced secondaries which is going to lead to A LOT of points imho. Our downfall this year is we lose a 1000 yard rusher and in our opener I didn't see anyone take that lead role. Without that being figured out I worry. We also ran the ball up the middle when we did run. Not sure if that was to keep the playbook close to the chest or to test the O line.

Now for those comparing this to 2 years ago.......its not the same team.

Reasons:
Rio Johnson started that game. He was not a Ruffin recruit and was not recruited for that system. He was in no way a air raid qb. He absolutely crapped himself during that game.

Our defense was worse. I'm not pounding my chest saying our defense is SEC quality. I'm merely saying that Brian Mitchell couldn't tie his shoes. We've changed DC since then and built our players around the 3-4 system. With all that said our DB's looked more aggressive against a quality community college team but they we will see what they are made of this week.

Stating that Thompson threw for 8000 yards against us is meaningless. All of those db's are gone. Ray charles could have thrown for 300 yards with Helen Keller, Stevie Wonder, and Louis Braille as his best wide outs.

Again I see no way to predict this game. My logical side says we get blown out and HBC makes a statement out of the game running it up. My gut says the game is close and it comes down to turnovers.

Final statement:
Don't judge ECU fans by some of the nutjobs that run around posting on every board. Most of us realize we are a team that is rising up but are not to the talent level of other schools. With all that said we have been a more cohesive unit lately and a well oiled machine can do a lot of damage.

I think we cover this spread.

I actually believe A&M is just that dang good. Sure, we didn't help ourselves, but we are still a good football team.
