  1. I am most definitely invested. Emotionally and financially. I have 2 degrees from ECU. Thank the LORD we finally got rid of our terrible AD. Once our terrible head coach doesn't live up to his GUARANTEE of 6 wins, we will be rid of him, too.
  2. Case Keenum can't catch a f'ing break.
  3. I always hear (and say myself) that the Hornets will struggle mostly because small-market teams don't really have a fair shake in the FA game. So... how in the holy hell did the Raptors become a contender? What are they doing that we aren't doing?
  4. Does Norwell now effect our 1st pick?

    I'd hate to think we're wasting Moton by keeping him on the bench. The guy has a ton of potential.
  5. REPORT: Andrew Norwell to Giants a "done deal"

    I blame the Russians.
  6. Top 10?

    Curious to see what people think of this... Give me your best 2-deep at every position - coming from the Bobcats and new Hornets rosters. I'll do mine first: PG: Kemba Walker / Raymond Felton SG: Stephen Jackson / Gerald Henderson SF: Gerald Wallace / Michael Kidd-Gilchrist PF: Al Jefferson / Boris Diaw C: Dwight Howard / Tyson Chandler FWIW - I think this team would be in the hunt for a title.
  7. Poor little snowflake. *sniff* Ol' Richie Incognito really hurt his feelings, guys. He said mean things and picked on him and stuff. The victim mentality displayed by Martin and many, many others in our country is a genuine mental illness. There was ALWAYS something "off" about Martin and that whole situation, and this just proves it.
  8. Cho OUT......NOW

    However... Let us never forget how the NBA screwed this franchise (quite possibly for a generation) when they gave Anthony Davis to New Orleans.
  9. Cho OUT......NOW

    Small market teams will always struggle in the NBA. That said - I think some of the moves Cho made, and most definitely the VAST majority of his draft picks, have been absolute trash. See below for IMO the most egregious draft disaster:
  10. Cho OUT......NOW

    This is really going to hurt our chances at bringing back Jeremy Lin.
  11. Will this cover us from a PC standpoint?
  12. Salt on the Wound: Gronk Robbed

    I think the whole Sean Taylor deal proved that it doesn't matter how big and strong you are when up against an idiot with a gun.
  13. Zion Williamson to Duke!!!!

    Pretty simple. Riley was ECU's Offensive Coordinator, and was considered one of the hottest up and coming coaches in football. So, after a few extremely successful seasons in Greenville, Riley was offered the Offensive Coordinator position at Oklahoma, which he couldn't pass up. A couple years later, Coach Ruff was fired (unjustly in my opinion) by our new, terrible AD. It was handled terribly. We needed a new head coach, and our AD reached out to Riley, who LOVES Coach Ruff, and turned us down because of how badly the firing was handled. At that time, it was not obvious that Stoops was about to resign, so it was a Head Coaching offer that Riley *might* have considered otherwise. And here we are. With Scottie freaking Montgomery.
  14. Zion Williamson to Duke!!!!

    No kidding. This picture makes me sad and angry. Haha
  15. Zion Williamson to Duke!!!!

    Haha - hasn't been all that bad. I became a fan in Steve Logan's last season. Suffered through the John Thompson years, but then Skip Holtz showed up... we won championships, bowl games, were ranked in the top 15. The Ruff years were mostly good, too. Blew out UNC and NC State on a regular basis... won in Blacksburg.. 2 record setting WR's. Then our braindead AD fired Coach Ruff, and here we are. We'll be back. But I wouldn't trade being a Pirate fan for ANY other team... whatsoever.
  16. Zion Williamson to Duke!!!!

    I have been fortunate enough in my life to not have to live in the Triangle.
  17. Zion Williamson to Duke!!!!

    I always hear this argument when I bring up college athletics fanhood. This is not a valid argument. Professional sports are entirely different. Unless you worked for the Panthers or played for the Panthers, you have never been "a part" of the Panthers organization. You want to be a Patriots fan? Be my guest. I'll make fun of you... but it is what it is. College is different. You will have a Masters degree from Duke in a couple years - big kudos there. You're telling me that you won't feel at least a LITTLE more entitled to your fanhood, or that you have a more legitimate argument, than say, the guy from Kannapolis who has a Duke tattoo, would fight you in a bar over "his Blue Devils", but has never given a dime to the university by way of donation or tuition? It's not a popular viewpoint that I have... I get it. It steps on a lot of toes. But it doesn't mean I'm wrong.
  18. Zion Williamson to Duke!!!!

    How about lets all be excited about the school we went to... ?
  19. Zion Williamson to Duke!!!!

    When I was a kid, I pulled for Wake Forest because my dad played basketball for the Deacs. However, after 1 year at ECU (back in 2002), I was completely converted to the purple & gold. I spent the next 6 years in Greenville getting my Bachelors and Masters degrees. So, yeah, I root for ECU sports and don't cheer for any other programs. I have an actual connection to ECU. Unlike most Duke or UNC fans. And for the idiot above who commented on rooting for schools based on their acceptance rate (which he didn't even get right), yeah, I'm sure you're a HUUUUGE Duke fan because of their strong academics. L.M.A.O.
  20. Ryan Kalil To Retire in 2018

    Well this opens the door for us to draft a D2 offensive lineman with lots of upside.
  21. Zion Williamson to Duke!!!!

    I love how excited people get about a university that they could never get into in a million years. The average Duke fan and Duke alumnus have zero in common.
