ECU won't be nearly as successful as A&M. Our receivers are bigger, faster, taller, and more agile than anything ECU can throw at you. Remember, these guys were some of the highest rated receivers and athletes coming out of high school for the past two years. ECU will not be able to dink and dunk and use yards after the catch to move the chains like we did. A big part of our success was the offensive scheme, but another part was talent differential.

I'm a Pirate fan and we will not win this game.
Spurrier will NEVER let that happen especially
losing the home opener. We have a lot of good
talent but our O-line looks rough. If the
Stars align and the football Gods give us a nod
then we might win! That said, Go Pirates!

not saying ours are "better" but you clearly have no idea who Justin Hardy is or anything about the rest of our WR corps. An ex NFL executive from the Cowboys has already said he thought Hardy was a 1st round draft pick. I am not saying that, but he is a top 3 round talent imo.

The rest of our corp are not exactly scrubs either.

Actually, on the whole, ECU's receivers are bigger

ECU doesn't have T A&M's talent. That being said the defense looked abysmal. I have no faith in the coaches and very little in the players until I see marked improvement. SC pulls out a close one 34-31.

252-0 USC. Gamecocks take out their frustration and punch it in 36 times. 13 TD's from the defense. USC is ranked #1 the next week.




Really though 38-28 USC

A 21 point spread improvement? Nah. I think it's a shootout until the 4th Q.

Defense is still going to struggle and turn this into a close game, but hopefully not an upset. I think the offense will be more comfortable and play better.

SOUTH CAROLINA 35
EAST CAROLINA 33

Ecu will not have the ball enough to score 31 on us. We'll be able to implement our game plan and keep the offense off the field. 42-10 cocks.

East Carolina has a stellar offense, but they lack an SEC ground attack. Linebackers force them into becoming one dimensional and then our OLBS/DBs lock down the receiving corps.

It'll be a great confidence builder for our young defense and will carry over into Georgia.

Carolina 38, ECU 10

You basically have answered your own question. It's hard to have confidence in a defense that is so unprepared. And you never have swagger after someone beats you like a red-headed step-child. To get the swagger back you have to play some swagger-building football for a while.

Something like 34-33 Carolina.


If Spurrier has the offense dropping back to pass every play and decides not to use his backs again, then this would will probably be chalked up in the loss column too. We have to take advantage of the staple of this offense and make defenses respect the run. I just don't think Dillon Thompson is good enough to win every game for us by himself. Remember, we did lose a third dimension to the offense this season with the loss of Connor Shaw.
