    Default Does anyone know who we play this week?

    Have we hit the “make Jake Heaps look like a five star QB” section of the schedule yet?

    Now's when we start picking on people our own size. Now's when we find out just how far down the floor is.

    ECU is terribler than BYU, in theory. Here's hoping that holds up.

    They looked pretty good for the first half or so against Virginia Tech. Seems like they've been able to score, though they haven't been able to keep anyone from scoring.

    They move the ball but can't stop anybody. However, we can't stop anybody and can't score. Doesn't sound like a good opponent for us.

    I’m predicting 3-3 over the next 6. BYU’s competition is terrible and BYU is equally terrible.

    Pretty safe. My bold prediction: BYU goes 4-2.

    I think we drop one, the most likely being Fresno.

    Detmer’s chance to start the turnaround. From ECU’s stats it would seem if BYU cant explode on offense against them, it would seem that the offense is never gonna go this year.

    Yep that’s a very likely loss and hard to believe BYU is good enough to run the table with the other more winnable games. 6-7 and a bowl game would be a great thing for this team but they would have to improve a lot from what they have shown so far.

    Unfortunate thread title suggestions:

    - "Arrrgghhh you ready for our first FBS win of the season?"
    - "A Pirate ship we can finally sink"
    - "Sweet T Mangum rises again"
    - "Victory on Tobacco Road -- football adapted to the capacity of the weak"


    Apologies for the Topper-like attitude.
    I have nothing else to say at this time.

    ECU has given up 34, 56, 64, 38, 61, 34 and 63 points this season. Looks like a defense that an offense should get well against but I have my doubts.

    I think this is a pretty accurate prediction. It'll either be Fresno or UNLV.

    Cracks me up that anybody could watch this horrible BYU team and think “Uh yeah I’m pretty sure we will win out but we might drop 1 remaining game.”

    This team is horrible and I wouldn’t trust them to beat any FBS school at this point. Hope I’m wrong.

    Put your money where your mouth is and bet a load of money on ECU this weekend.

    ECU is a terrible team and the local's are up in arms that the new AD Jeff Compher fired Ruffian McNeil a couple of years ago then was shocked when no coach worth his salt would take the job. Then the ECU president gave the jerk an extension on his contract and now they can't fire the AD. This is typical of so many college programs where the coach has a good team and the boosters/AD think they should be in top 5 or something crazy. I wouldn't be surprised if the stadium is empty. Not only is ECU terrible but there is no hope of getting rid of the clown in charge of athletics. Morale is horrible in G-Vegas.

    BYU is going to win out, including the bowl game. Finish 8-6 and we are all going to be pumped come spring ball for next season when the schedule lightens up a bit and Tanner is a 30 year old senior.

    Of course next year we start with @Arizona, Cal, @Wisconsin, Mcneese State, @ Washington. So most likely we start the season 1-4 again, and we go through this all over.

    We finish with Utah State, Hawaii, Northern Illinois, @Boise, @UMASS, New Mexico State, @ Utah. So we need to finish 5-2 to make a bowl game.

    Default Smoke 'em, Chop 'em, Eat 'em up -- BYU @ ECU

    We all know it's been a rough season so far, but it gets on track this week with the Cougs inspired by their visit to the true and living church of bbq. As OceanBlue mentioned, ECU is down down down this year and they give up a lot of offense. We had some glimpses of getting things in order and this is the place to really make that happen. The Pirates' lone win was a tight one that almost went to OT and they're not rolling in points either.

    The purple and gold will be black and blue Saturday night!


    And if you need meal ideas, go back to the trippin post.

    Quote Originally Posted by Parrot Head View Post

    That area is the home of Eastern NC style bbq and there are some options that you just can't go wrong with. This is pulled pork, whole hog goodness and in the east it's a thin, pepper-rich vinegar-based sauce, no tomato or -- bleh -- mustard-based SC sauce.

    • Bill's (Wilson, NC) -- This is my favorite. "From the squeal to the meal." Due to hurricanes and flooding, Bill's became a buffet several years back and it's great. The fried chicken is like cocaine (per Mrs. PH, though I'm afraid to question her knowledge of the similarities) and you want the bbq to go with it, along with hushpupppies, corn sticks, Brunswick stew, slaw and finish it off with some of the best banana pudding anywhere. They also have pre-frozen pints and quarts in the drive-thru in case you need to catch a plane, take some home, heal a black eye.
    • Parker's (Wilson) -- Parker's is similar to Bill's and half my family prefers that over Bill's, but it's a preference thing. They don't have a buffet, but the livers and gizzards are supposedly quite delicious. Go with the same items as above. And some of my family helped to build the restaurant, so that's a bonus. They're not too far from each other, so try them both!
    • B's (Greenville) -- B's is a classic, pit-fired place with no frills mom-n-pop place. Heck, they haven't had a phone all that long. Sells out quickly, so go early.
    • Skylight Inn (Ayden) -- Good, wood-fired 'cue, but it's chopped too finely for my taste, whereas the others have good-sized chunks.
    I have nothing else to say at this time.

    Based on the number of post already in this thread it doesn't look like many are excited for the game Saturday.

    It's to bad they didn't name it East North Carolina University, then they could have been the most directional of all directional colleges.

    Topper say what? It wasn't clear if the other thread was directed at ECU or a showing of general malaise for the second half of the season.
