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

So what you meant to say was we were a young unproven defense. I specifically dispute the "Your defense sucks" comment until its proven. I'm not gonna argue that it may or may not end up being true.......but its unproven at this point.

I'm not a politician, so I don't feel the need to be PC. Your defense, much like ours, sucks.

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.

One diff - they beat up on some NC H.S. team last week 52-7 and as such, don't have a 250000 BTU flame on their backsides to fix several things.

Ours on the other hand - if my feeble memory serves me - will come out with at least moderate improvement in one or two areas (D-line penetration OR secondary coverage) - and our O already came out of the gate better than I had hoped for (even after tossing the game plan...). We do that - we cover - and my lists show it 16.5/17 right now...


Just imagine the spread had we not gotten torched...

Incredibly valid point! To make it worse for our experience we only had one scrimmage this offseason with the thought of keeping guys healthy and the NCCU game essentially being a tune up game. The way I see it you guys have already played 2 more games than us.

The spread represents what it is though. To say "imagine what the spread would be if..." is like saying "imagine what the spread would be if our team was better".

I'll do you one better, I'll give you ECU and 24. Place your wager into my paypal account at i'mgoingtostealyourmoney@youbet.com. But seriously feel free to post a screen shot of your bet. I'll bet you won't because you don't.

As others have pointed out, just bet your life savings on ECU to cover with Vegas, it is a sure bet, right??!

Funny...we opened as 15.5 pts favorites, but line has moved to 16.5 and even as high as 17.

ECU is a good team, it is simple wrong time to play the gamecocks. I assure you the DB's will not give ECU a 10 yard cushion for their wideouts. If you have any questions look a the game with NCCU on ESPN3. Like UCF last year, power football is the answer. ECU played NCCU. NCCU OL vs Gamecocks OL average difference is 6 inches and 50lbs per man. On Defense NCCU starting DT"S 6' 285 vs Gamecocks 6'3 320. Sorry but we have something to prove this week at the expense of ECU. Our Statement game is next week Georgia.

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

Many said the same about aTm's defense too, just sayin.

What crackhead started this thread, vegas comes up with the line and they have a ton of practice at it...Genius if you are so confident then bet the house on ecu in Vegas and let us know how it works out Sunday if you still have a house!

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.

Great, when we get an SEC defense let me know. Because we didn't even have an FBS defense last game.

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...
