Thought it was interesting.  Good read.

I would go apoplectic, followed by going catatonic.

#3313153 Hardy's Panthers workout "went very well"

I approve of this thread.


Justin Hardy will be a good pro.  I just hope it's for us and not against us.

#3309617 Who is your round 3 starter?

Posted by ECUPantherFan on 02 April 2015 - 07:46 AM


I just don't think Hardy will get picked that high.  Nor will he start for this team.  


You're probably right.  Why would the NCAA All-Time career receptions record holder have a prayer of starting for a team with arguably the weakest WR corps in the NFL?  LoL  Do you even hear yourself?


I guess nobody really knows how early he'll get drafted until the draft, but he's consistently being mock drafted in the 2nd & 3rd round.

...even though it will probably be met with "Holy crap not again" by the board...


Justin Hardy.  If available in the 3rd, WOULD start for this team.

Justin Hardy ran a 4.4 at his pro day today... just sayin.  MUCH better hands than Perriman.

Justin Hardy - WR - 6'0" 185lbs



NCAA All-Time leader for career receptions.  He has the best hands I've ever seen on a receiver at ECU.  I think I maybe saw him drop 2 catchable balls this season.  I have never seen a guy with more circus catches than Hardy.  He did the "Odell Beckham Jr" a month before Odell did it.  He has ridiculous quickness off the line, and more than makes up for his lack of top end speed.  I think he clocked in at a 4.5 at the combine.  So, he's fast, but he much quicker than he is fast.  He would be an ideal slot receiver, and will have a good career in the NFL.



Shane Carden - QB - 6'2" 220lbs


A winner.  Plain and simple.  He's got leadership out the wazoo.  His mechanics are a little iffy, and I'll be the first person to admit that.  He has a Phillip Rivers type throwing motion, but it worked out for RIvers, so why not Shane?  He's got good pocket presence, was constantly avoiding pressure with our crappy OL, and was great at improvising when throwing on the run.  He doesn't have the BEST deep ball I've ever seen, but he threw his fair share.  He'll be a good backup, and I think he could be an average starter.


2012 - 273 of 413, 3,116 Yards, 23 TD's, 10 INT's

2013 - 387 of 549, 4,139 Yards, 33 TD's, 10 INT's  (10 Rushing TD's)

2014 - 392 of 617, 4,736 Yards, 30 TD's, 10 INT's


Cam Worthy - WR - 6'3" 220lbs


He was our deep threat all season.  Virginia Tech fans will remember the numerous long bombs he caught in ECU's win in Blacksburg this year.  He is a 9-route guy, all the way.  Throw it deep, and his big body will go up and get it.  He was invited to the combine, but I don't see any stats from it.  Not sure what happened.


Terry Williams - DT - 6'1" 353lbs


"The Swamp Monster" was his nickname during his time in Greenville.  At 353lbs, he still clocks in at a 5.0 40 yard dash.  Most ESPN analysts said that they'd never seen a guy that big move that fast during games.  He takes on 2-3 blockers on average, and was a nightmare for opposing offenses.

The killer was a self proclaimed atheist and Democrat party supporter.  Usually this is not relevant, but I'm sure the uneducated would love to pin this guy as a Tea Party supporter, which he was not.

Hardy checked in a little shorter than advertised.  He's not going to blow anyone away with his 40 time, either.


What will blow scouts away are his hands, his routes, his playmaking ability, his return ability, and his ability to make absolutely ridiculous circus catches.  He already patented the Odell Beckham Jr. catch well before ODB did it.


Whoever gets Justin Hardy is getting a future star.  Apparently he was a standout from Practice 1.

Go to Monk's bar... one of the best beer bars in the world.  Also one of maybe 2-3 bars on the east coast to have Pliny The Elder on tap.  Rated one of the best IPA's in the world.

#3067316 Heading to Philly....

Posted by ECUPantherFan on 04 November 2014 - 09:13 AM

I just got back from 3 days in Philly.  My parents live there.  (They are from NC, but had to move there due to a promotion.)


1 - Philly is huge.  Whoever said it was like Raleigh thinks entirely too highly of Raleigh.

2 - The food is amazing.  Go eat at one of the many amazing restaurants at Rittenhouse Square.  Avoid Pat's & Geno's.  Jim's Steaks is the best I've ever had.

3 - Anyone who tells you not to go see the Liberty Bell & Independence Hall is an idiot.  It's American history, and everyone should see them at least once in their lifetime.

4 - I didn't get the asshole vibe from people in Philly.  Everyone went out of their way to accommodate us and answer questions.  Eagles fans on gameday are a completely different breed, but the Philly population in general is pleasant.

5 - Lincoln Financial Field is really, really nice.

6 - Go Panthers!

7 - Avoid the subway early morning and late at night.  The homeless congregate in huge numbers down there... especially now that it's cold.

What a great move by Cliff. Henderson also seeing less time. Now if he could tune down Neal's minutes and give them to PJ we will be looking good.


LoL... let's take away key minutes from the proven veteran and give them to the rookie when we're trying to be a contender in the East.  Makes sense.  I swear you say dumber things every day.

#3021949 #19 ECU @ USF...HOMECOMING...whoops

Posted by ECUPantherFan on 15 October 2014 - 10:06 AM

No, it is nothing like Charlotte's schedule. Charlotte's schedule is entirely FCS or non D1.


I never said it was even remotely comparable to ECU's. ECU had a great OOC schedule, but ECU's conference schedule is mostly trash. The AAC is a bad, bad, bad conference.


ECU and UCF are solid. Houston is okay. Temple might be good, but they haven't played anyone worth a poo yet, so who knows there. The rest of the conference is pretty much terrible.


Most RPI and rating sites have CUSA listed as a slightly stronger conference than the AAC or dead even this year because the bottom of the AAC is so dreadfully bad. The top of the AAC is definitely stronger though.


In ESPN's Bottom 25, the AAC has 


SMU (#1)

UCONN (#4)

Tulsa (#5)

Tulane (#19)


ECU is unfortunately scheduled to play all of these teams.


That doesn't take away from ECU's OOC play, but like I said before, that SOS is going to take a hit.


At the end of the year, the computer numbers will likely be very similar for Marshall and ECU (assuming neither slips up and gets another loss) and it will come down to the eye test.


I don't really care who gets the spot because I'm not a fan of either team and since Charlotte isn't in CUSA for football yet, we won't see any financial windfall from Marshall getting the major bowl appearance. I just laugh at ECU fans that keep making comments like they're far and away better than a Marshall team that beat the poo out of them last year and returned almost their entire team.


This is probably Marshall's best team since the late 90's, but they F'd up big time with the schedule and there will always be an asterisk beside this season unless they get the major bowl game and win it.


If the AAC is bad, then C-USA is a dumpster fire.


SMU, Tulsa, & Tulane are the only teams in the American that wouldn't have a legit shot at winning the old Sun Belt..er..new C-USA.


Marshall would have a chance at winning the AAC, too.
