    Well said I've heard or been to most those games and S.Miss. games are really our super bowl as ECU/S.Miss. are in C-USA and these games count and NCSU is just bragging rites

    SMU wasn't a member of C-USA when NCSU got those dubs. The only thing that has saved NCSU from being absolutely horrible the last few years has been RW. TOB could be jobless right now if it wasn't for him and the man gave a guy who arguably was putting together the best career in school history the boot.

    Hell the game where NCSU beat us in 2008, we probably beat you guys 31-7 if not RW's excellent play. I would be absolutely disgusted if an ECU coach did anything similar.

    C-USA isn't as bad as you guys want to makeout. Tulsa, ECU, Houston, UCF, and So. Miss all put solid teams on the field in most years.

    You say USM has a high school field.....maybe. I will tell you this. ECU has had MUCH more success over the last 25-30 in a lopsided series in Raleigh over NCSU than it ever has against So. Miss. Those guys have for the most part fielded better and more consistent teams than NCSU.

    There is a reason we are 10-26 alltime against So Miss in a home and home and series.

    We are 11-16 all time against NCSU in a series mostly played in Raleigh.

    I'm still sticking with my first one. It will be tight, but ECU wins this one.

    The sad reality is that you have a weak non conference schedule to hopefully secure yourselves of a bowl game. How long will you use the excuse that we are trying to "build our program" up?

    This is why I hate "what if..." arguments. You think NCSU gets the same recruits if they're in C-USA?

    If we're in an auto-BCS league, then ECU gets a bigger share of 3 star recruits every year and improved depth across the board.

    Let's drop the Daniel Evans comments b/c we made him look like Peyton Manning in that 2007 game - in Greenville.

    I didn't bend any facts to fit my argument. I have included all of the games that NC State has played against C-USA competition in the short history of C-USA (since 1996) below. These are the only games that we have to go on.

    Since 1996 NC State is 8 - 6 against C-USA competition. If NC State was in C-USA they would be just another team fighting for the C-USA title and nothing more.

    I cannot help if a C-USA team was too strong for an NC State team in a particular year or an NC State team was too weak for a C-USA team in a particular year. I cannot help you with that.

    I see that you want to go back 25 years back into NC State football history. I cannot do that to compare it to C-USA teams because as I stated before C-USA was formed in 1996.

    Here are the results of every game NC State has played against C-USA competition since the league was formed:

    1996: East Carolina 50 NC State 29
    *East Carolina was not actually in C-USA during this game but the Pirates joined a year later after receiving the invite in 1997. I included this game on here because it is so close to the timeline and this is an ECU vs NC State
    1997: NC State 37 East Carolina 24
    1999: East Carolina 23 NC State 6
    2000: NC State 41 SMU 0
    2001: NC State 26 SMU 17 2004: NC State 52 East Carolina 14 2005: NC State 21 Southern Miss 17 2006: Southern Mississippi 37 NC State 17 East Carolina 21 NC State 16 2007: Central Florida 25 NC State 23 NC State 34 East Carolina 20 2008: NC State 30 East Carolina 24 2010: NC State 28 Central Florida 21 East Carolina 33 NC State 27

    Nice job bending the facts to fit your argument. 2006 Southern Miss. won their division, and 2007 & 2010 UCF and 2008 ECU were the CUSA champs. Except for last year's team, those were some pretty bad State teams compared to what we've put on the field for the last 25 years or so. Yet they still went 3-4 against teams that finished very strong in your conference. Somehow those results show that transplanting those NC State teams into CUSA would leave them as just another team in the conference? Might want to rethink your position, or at least your evidence.

    I expect it to be a tight game. ECU has to improve on defense from last year. I feel that they will. I will not pick a winner on this one until I see an injury report before the game. Our game at ECU will be another tough one too. Many fans haven't enjoyed VT's early games into a new season lately. Too many mistakes. Just hope we can win the first one against ASU.
