Talking Points: Busy day in "ARRR State"

Posted November 24, 2013

Billboard following East Carolina's win over NC State.

1. Duke traveled to Wake Forest, NC State welcomed East Carolina, and North Carolina hosted Old Dominion. The Tar Heels played a basketball game against Richmond and the Carolina Hurricanes faced off against Boston. It was a ridiculously busy afternoon in Triangle sports and almost impossible to keep up with it all.

It sure was fun trying.

Buried in the football action was more intimation that North Carolina won't be getting P.J. Hairston back in the lineup anytime soon.

    I never called the logo stupid, just ecu fans in general. And it has nothing to do with "jealousy", I just think most fans across North Carolina, ecu fans included, are delusional. You really think ecu plays "big boy football"? Other than being in the same subdivision as "big boy football" programs, can ecu really call simply being competitive in a mediocre conference like the cusa "big boy football"? If ecu was in the acc, would they be any better than any other NC school, sometimes being competitive but usually finishing towards the bottom of the conference?

    What I'm trying to say is, ecu football is ok at best, competitive in the cusa but not on the national level and will never play for a national title. If you really want to get petty though, 3 national championships at the FCS level is better than none at the FBS level.

    So you're a Happy Appy and you call our logo stupid after that App State "Hot, Hot, Hot" video a few years ago? Wow, I'd look in the mirror before making fun of someone else's promotions.

    Maybe one day you'll move up to big boy football like the Pirates. And, please, don't bring up that one victory over Michigan a decade ago. Until then, try to keep your jealousy from showing so much when ECU beats ACC teams.

    I'm not a Duke fan either, but I will tell you who I cheer for.

    Ready for the big reveal?

    Appalachian State

    Didn't know it is courageous to declare who I am a fan of, but I am flying high now. I am just trying to be realistic when I comment.

    Just as I figured, I went back to google and searched 'site:wralsportsfan.com lewiskr45' and most of lewis' comments are just like this one. All negative and put downs without the courage to come out and say who it supports. Here is a small sample:
    1-These articles are just terrible.
    2-You could say the panthers have only one quality win too.
    3-Great move, Logan has more sports knowledge than anyone on WRAL, 99.9, or 620. He brings a level of sports broadcasting and analysis to the Triangle that is needed with all of the professional and college teams here. (BTW: Logan coached those same stupid people you blasted today.)

    Note: I am not a UNC, ECU or state fan - noticed you didn't said who you pull for, who do you pull for? Duke? They weren't in your exclusive list? Or are you one of those "I'm too smart to be a sports fan" types?

    Go Pirates!

    When you life revolves around big brother UNC, no surprise you don't know who ODU has played. Ha!

    You're right. The Pirates lost 15-10 the previous week in a close game with Virginia Tech. Next excuse please. 55-31

    ECU fans can gloat all they want, but at the end of the day, they beat one of the worst teams in the ACC, and have a winning record because of playing in an extremely weak CUSA. As far as the logo goes, other schools (Illinois, Indiana, even UNC) have used the outline of their state at midfield, so it isn't really "yours". And to get technical, it is the state of NORTH Carolina, not East Carolina. If ECU were to paint the eastern part of the state at midfield, it would make much more sense, but it is ecu and they are pretty stupid. As far as beating unc, they sucked early in the year and have benefited from a weak schedule in the second half.

    Note: I am not a UNC, ECU or state fan.
