    I studied this game in depth from injuries to shared team comparisons to specific match ups. Cannot determine an edge either way. This would be the best win that ecu has had so far because the offense is similar (not talent wise but design wise) to teams that ecu has lost to this season. If ecu wins this game it would be proof of improvement that many ecu fans have been looking for in my opinion. I wish y'all luck.
    Ecu keys to the game:
    Prevent big running plays. Marshall has had quite a few in their last games to help boost a team that would prefer to throw.
    Defensive stops. Whoever has the most wins this game. Period.
    Protect the middle of the field on short yardage throws. Marshall likes to open up the long pass with the short passes in the middle of the field.
    I could put turnovers or any of the that holds true for any game up here but we all know that.

    Co'mon Man !! I'm not real happy either or enthused about ECU football given the true aspect of our current program. But, let's try to remamin hopeful and thankful for what we've got. I mean, it is Thanksgiving for crying out load. So, we all can be at least optimistic on this special day -- or at least until the programs proves us wrong with the last 2 games. What do you say ??

    I agree cooper. This and the bowl game will tell me a lot. I am not so sure that beating Marshall would be considered a great win being that they are 5-6 and I think they lost to Memphis or one of the other CUSA bottom feeders a few weeks ago. The bowl game is what I am curious about. My mind has been made up about the coaching staff and I don't think they will take us anywhere close to what Logan, Skip or Pat Dye did. I just see mediocre football.

    However a solid bowl win over a good team and wins over UNC or NCSU next year will change my mind. I don't think it will happen though.

    They also have a running back who puts up 150 often enough to be mentioned.

    Ecu can score also. We know both teams can score.This game will be decided by who can stop somebody. We can't be sure who that is.

    That's correct, the game will be on CBS Sports network (CBSSN) which is on a higher tier than just basic cable. Also a reminder that kickoff is scheduled for 2pm -- not 3:30. Due to the contract, I don't beleive that it can be carried by WITN, nor can the video be shown on the ECU/CUSA All Access computer site -- but the audio (radio broadcast) will be available.

    I think this will be a very important game for ECU. It will tell a great deal about the team and coaching staff. Marshall has a more decent record than our other wins and a great deal to play for in that 6th win to become bowl eligible. How ironic would it be that Marshall beat us last year in OT to keep us out of a bowl game. Can ECU take revenge this year ??

    I agree that the game will come down to mistakes and possibly who has the ball last. Marshall is ranked #1 in passing (CUSA) and will throw the ball all over the field -- which isn't a good sign for ECU. However , they also have the worst defense in CUSA in allowed scoring and also allowing an average of 252 yards rushing per game. I think it will come down to turnovers, mistakes & crucial penalties, and the difference between TD's and field goals. ECU got lucky last week against Tulane with bad penalties at crucial times and turnovers that limited possesions. However, ECU's defense did force a few field goals instead of given up TD's. I'm not so sure they will be able to get away with that this week.

    I see this as a crucial game because -- can we actually play a well-coached, mistake free ball game -- or our we going to find a way to "beat ourself". This game as well as our upcoming bowl game will tell me a great deal of if ECU is now headed in the right direction with the football program.

    Just checked. This is definitely the case. Twc-537, 1537 hd.

    It is listed as CBS sports here. That is a pay channel and I think that means no witn 7 broadcast on this game. That is the channel that caused all that uproar 2 years ago because they bought the ecu unc game and few people had that tier in their cable package.

    I know the game will be on some network, thus the Friday @ 3:30 kickoff, but I doubt the basic cable were I am for the holiday includes that network. I can get WITN, will they be broadcasting it as well?

    Ahmad Bradshaw flunked INTO Marshall as did Mr.Moss. Heck, those are just the talented ones that people have heard of. Every time I see a talented player at a major college not make it through admissions or commit some crime, Marshall is one of the places that I check for their reappearance. Especially if it is a player that we followed for recruiting reasons and determined that he could not make admissions or was likely to be in jail on National Signing Day. No kidding. It is a running joke within regional recruiting circles.
