    Besides him and Randy Moss, I'm guessing they've never had any other four star recruits. I believe the question they'd have asked him when he left BC is "what position would you like to play, sir?"

    Yeah those are the ones that I remember. Okoroha was a four star player. I had heard that they had gotten into some trouble but I guess that has never stopped Marshall from signing or playing anyone.

    You have a better memory than I do. Actually, it was one player, a four-star recruit who would be a fifth year senior at Marshall. His name was Okechuckwu Okoroha (easy for you to say). In sympathy, his best friend Dominick LeGrande (two-stars) quit the team and also transferred to Marshall.

    They are both listed as safeties on Marshall's roster for this season, and both are number one on the depth chart at marshall.rivals.com.

    Ken, maybe you know about this. I seem to remember two troubled but talented defensive players for BC were kicked off of the team. The last that I heard they were suiting up for Marshall but I cannot find them on the depth chart. What gives?

    I'd like to think that the possibility of a 9 win season, no matter who the beat or lost to, should be motivation for the Pirates. It's been 12 years since ECU lost as few as 4 games in a season.

    Matchup summary: ECU-7 pt favorite

    ECU-7-4;(6-1)

    Marshall-5-6, (6-1)

    My take:

    Much like ECU it is hard to appraise this team as their losses have often come at the hands of good or decent teams. However, getting murdalized by UCF (54-17) should be a good sign for the pirates. Their Houston win was also by a lesser margin. However they also seem to have a somewhat efficient running game to go along with their passing game which has caused problems for ECU against the better teams on their schedules.

    Conclusion: Toss up. I would not put any money within a mile of this thing. Best defense will win but how can you correctly predict turnovers or blown coverage?

    Here is to hoping that ECU can pull it out. Good luck.
