Not their fault huh? I beg to differ. Look at the non conference opponents for both teams for this year and the next 3 years. ECU and Marshall do play each other in 2020 and 2021 but in the meantime lets look below...



East Carolina Future Non-Conference Opponents - 2014+
2014
08/30 - NC Central
09/06 - at South Carolina
09/13 - at Virginia Tech
09/20 - North Carolina

2015
09/12 - at Florida
09/26 - Virginia Tech
10/10 - at BYU

2016
09/17 - at Virginia Tech
TBA - at South Carolina
TBA - NC State

2017
09/16 - Virginia Tech
10/21 - BYU
TBA - at West Virginia

Marshall Future Non-Conference Opponents - 2014+
2014
08/30 - at Miami (OH)
09/06 - Rhode Island
09/13 - Ohio
09/20 - at Akron

2015
09/05 - Purdue
09/12 - at Ohio
09/19 - Norfolk State
09/26 - at Kent State

2016

2017
09/02 - Miami (OH)
09/09 - at NC State
09/16 - Kent State


I am quoting myself because I felt this was overlooked over the weekend. I am not saying Marshall sucks. I am saying Marshall screwed themselves, sad story, turn the page. Learn a lesson and don't be stupid next time. Perhaps they should start canceling some of those bs games and schedule real non conference games.

P.S. - If Marshall goes undefeated there will not be an asterisk by their name.

Also let's talk about SMU since they are mentioned in a prior post as the worst team in America. They had a coaching change one game into the season. They have started 3-4 quarterbacks and now appear to have found a starter. They are 0-5. WOW. THEY MUST SUCK SINCE THEY ARE 0-5. Perhaps let's look at who they have played. Baylor, North Texas, Texas A&M, TCU, and ECU......LOL who in the heck in CUSA would have more than 1 win, which would be against North Texas, another CUSA team, with that schedule???????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Their schedule to start the year is like an SEC schedule....INSANE!

I also guarantee if SMU played North Texas again they would beat them now that they have a starting QB who looks effective.

the entire reason i asked, originally, if ecu could afford another L and still make a NYD bowl was because they played a power 5 non-con schedule. if ecu loses and marshall happens to lose as well then i'd still go with ECU. again, marshall will have played nobody. marshall's non-con schedule does them no favors. will they even play a team with a winning FBS record this season? at least we know ECU can play, and beat some legitimate teams. marshall will not be tested whatsoever.


You are correct. Niner National has it out for ECU and is pro Marshall. He originally was saying it wasn't Marshall's fault their non-conference schedule sucked because Louisville cancelled on them. One game against Louisville had it not been cancelled doesn't exactly make your schedule tough. Then I showed him the schedule comparison for this year and the next few years which he did not respond to. Likely because it exposes Marshall and their ridiculously weak scheduling compared to ECU's annual non-conference schedule full of mine fields. This is on page 3 of this thread. Marshall purposely scheduled ridiculously weak opponents and now they are paying for it. They will pay for it the next few years too. Compare the two, they are hysterical and could not be anymore different.

"I grew up a duke fan and went to ECU. The only time I don't root for UNC is when they are playing my team."

So you're ready to jump ship? Are you MRTD?


Lol I should also add I pull for all in state schools when they aren't playing my school.

The first half was ugly. Way too many penalties. Came alive in the second half. But you can paint this one purple!

Despite the allegiances to my school, i've long felt an attachment to ECU for some reason... even after the ass whupping ya'll put on us, i'm riding with ya'll for football season this year.

I meant to say this a few weeks ago after watching him a few games, including the VT game, but am I the only one who sees a lot of Brees in Carden?


I grew up a duke fan and went to ECU. The only time I don't root for UNC is when they are playing my team.

On the Brees and Carden thing....I never saw it but you are 100% spot on. As a fan I have all the confidence in the world in him. I see a nice long career for him in the nfl once he gets adjusted which may take a few years. Hopefully he doesn't go to an awful franchise.
