    This will be a shoot out. It may be that whoever gets the ball last wins. Marshall has something... View More

    You were certainly right about the shootout. But didn't the Pirates have something to play for?... View More

    There is no way UAB beats UCF. If UCF loses to UAB then they definitely are not fit to play for... View More

    Would you have guessed SMU would knock off Tulsa? As of 7:13 tonight there are 69 teams... View More

    Not at all. I wouldn't have thought that houston would hang 72 on SMU when they played a few weeks ago.

    70 bowls is a meaningless reward in my book. With so many bowls out there that they would allow 5-7 teams to go is not a reward. It is watered down and no longer a real symbol of success.

    Would you have guessed SMU would knock off Tulsa? As of 7:13 tonight there are 69 teams eligible for 70 bowl slots. There are five teams who still have a shot. One of them is Rice. If they beat UTEP they're guaranteed a bowl, since C-USA wouldn't have enough teams to meet all its commitments.

    There is no way UAB beats UCF. If UCF loses to UAB then they definitely are not fit to play for the CUSA title game. UCF should win by at least 30 points.

    If the upset happened I would not be confident going to Tulsa being that Marshall put up 633 yards of offense on our defense. 419 passing and 237 rushing. Tulsa has a decent defense and a powerful offense. I think if we played them we would get clobbered. If we beat Tulsa, then my tune about Ruff as the HC would start to change being that he beat a well rounded team.

    Ecu run game really clicking. Ecu has also made huge defensive plays. O line looks rediculously dominant.

    That's a very good and fair analysis of today's game. We all know it's going to be a shootout -- defense is going to be the key. I wathced last week's game on my computer, but had to listen to Tulane's announcers (which was funny stuff). But what impressed both me and them was the fact of whenever Tulane caught the ball (which was a lot), ECU was right there to make the tackle with very little to no yards after the catch. Plus, in the 2nd half we started to get to the QB for either sacks or hurried throws.

    ECU's offense did barely enough to win the game. But, it was the defense that turned TD's into field goals for Tulane. However, we did allow them to get deep with a late 31 yard TD pass. And had our offense not scored a TD on their last possesion -- we would have lost that game.

    Marshall's defense sucks -- that's why they have the record they do. So, can ECU's offense score enough and not beat or stop ourself. Can our defense tackle and stop TD's and force field goals. And maybe most importantly -- what kind of coaching and team character will we show when adversity hits (BECAUSE IT WILL !!). That's why I think this game will be a good and true test of the program.

    I'm looking forward to watching the game on my TV. I've got my wings marinating and my Crown & Sprite in the frig. Hopefully things will go well -- at least so that my friends don't tear up my house in anger. GO PIRATES !!!
