In Topic: UCONN @ #18 ECU Thursday night game ESPNU

23 October 2014 - 02:09 PM

I'm thinking ECU has a slow start, and that UCONN's defense will be ready.  But much like the USF game, UCONN will wear down in the 2nd half, and ECU should win by 2-3 TD's.

Wait... so has everybody soured on Turner's potential?  I thought he was going to be a franchise Guard for us?

EAST CAROLINA UNIVERSITY

 

Coming off the best season in the past decade, ECU is definitely poised to repeat their success from last season.  Senior QB Shane Carden is a legitimate Heisman candidate, and the most prolific Wide Receiver in ECU history (Justin Hardy) will also be back for his senior season.  Moving from C-USA to the American is a step up in competition, but this is likely the best team ECU has fielded in many years.  Could be a special season!!

 

(10-2) (7-1 AMERICAN CONF)

 

NC Central - W - Easy win.  ECU rolls.

 

@ South Carolina - L - Can't wait to get the Gamecocks in Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium... but for now, they'll probably be too much in Columbia.

 

@ Virginia Tech - W - VT is breaking in a brand new QB... and they BARELY escaped ECU with a victory last season.  Pirates will be better, Hokies should be worse.  Lane Stadium is a factor, but ECU is accustomed to playing in big venues, and won't shrink.

 

North Carolina - W - This one could go either way.  ECU flat out DOMINATED the Heels in Chapel Hill last season, and this one is in Greenville.  Dowdy-Ficklen will be ROCKING the Pirates to a win.

 

SMU - W - SMU fans are looking for June Jones to be fired.  Program is in a tailspin.  Easy win.

 

@ South Florida - W - Great recruiting class for USF this season, but all those freshmen won't be able to patch USF's holes this season.  They'll be back, but not this year.

 

UCONN - W - UCONN is awful.

 

@ Temple - W - Temple is awful.

 

@ Cincinnati - L - I think our first "big boy" game in the AAC will see a lot of jitters from the Pirates.  Just have a bad feeling about this one.

 

Tulane - W - Revenge for last year's 3OT loss in New Orleans that nearly derailed our season.

 

@ Tulsa - W - Tulsa is arguably the worst team in the AAC.

 

UCF - W - No more Blake Bortles or Storm Johnson.  UCF never wins in Greenville.  Senior night, night game, national TV... Pirates will be out for blood.

 

Looks like I have been pretty much spot on, with the exception of me predicting that ECU would lose to VT.  Now I think we can win out and go 11-1, and to the Fiesta or Peach bowl.

Dwayne Harris would be an excellent FA pickup at WR.  He won't be expensive, he's a dynamic returner, and a very good slot receiver.

 

Not to double down on ECU receivers, but Justin Hardy is one of the best WR in the nation.  About to break Ryan Broyles all-time career reception record... the kid has freakishly large, amazing hands.  Also a very good returner. 

 

Either/both of these guys would instantly change the Panthers offense.  Granted, we need a vet #2 receiver behind Kelvin, IMO.


In Topic: Terry Williams

Terry is known to ECU fans as "The Swamp Monster"

 

ECU has produced several good NFL D-Linemen in recent years.

 

Terry is likely better than Linval Joseph (who just signed a huge contract in Minnesota) and is much more nimble.  Fastest 350+ player I've ever seen.
