#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.

Another L will probably knock ECU out of contention for any major bowl unless other teams with 0 or 1 losses also loses.


AAC is just as shitty as CUSA, so wins there aren't really going to do a lot of favors and unfortunately for ECU, they got paired with many of the shittiest teams in the AAC this year (Temple probably got the best SOS draw in AAC play).


UCONN is next up. They're a bottom 10 FBS team. After UCONN comes Temple, a team whose schedule so far has probably been worse than Marshall's. Then Cinci, one of the worse defenses in all of football. ECU should put up big points on them. Then Tulane, another bottom 10-15 FBS team. Then Tulsa, another bottom 10-15 FBS team. 


The only undeniably good team left on ECU's schedule is UCF. That SOS is about to drop like a rock.


There is no room for error for ECU or Marshall. There are more players in contention for that access bowl than just ECU and Marshall. Colorado State is sitting at 5-1, so if they can manage to win out, they'll have to receive pretty strong consideration as well. A few others have a smaller, but possible shot at the access bowl too. Basically any team with 2 losses or less is theoretically in contention at the moment. In a few weeks, we'll probably have it narrowed to only a few schools though.


Not by a long shot.


Marshall has not played ANYONE anywhere REMOTELY close to Vandy & Navy. 


Let's compare schedules thus far...


Marshall has played: @ Miami (OH), Rhode Island, Ohio, @ Akron, @ Old Dominion, MTSU

Temple has played: @ Vanderbilt, Navy, Delaware St, @ UCONN, Tulsa


They are both relatively weak schedules, but Temple took care of an SEC school on the road.  Marshall won't do anything this year that is even in the same universe, clout-wise.

too late. They lost to USC.


I know it sounds crazy, but that game feels like it was a year ago.

So some troll who pulls for UNC, but goes to Liberty is talking trash about our QB...


Also...another troll who pulls for UNC but didn't go there...(went to ECU unfortunately) is ALSO talking trash about our QB...


Nothing to see here.


But do you see the common thread between the 2 of them?  Lmao.

But we are 0-4 overall vs USF...


They have (on paper) the best athletes in the AAC.  They just haven't been able to put it together.


This definitely feels like it could be ECU's annual "WTF" game.  But I am confident that if we come out and play hard, we win big.

Shane vs UNC (2013) 55-31

376 Yards - 3 TD's


Shane vs UNC (2014) 70-41

438 Yards - 4 TD's


I can understand why UNC fans don't like the guy.  LMAO.

I wouldn't be too sure about that. Two embarrassing losses to ECU and could be 3 Ls in a row to the dookies...not to mention a possible loss to NCSU this year. People I know that are connected to the program are pissed. Want better. Deserve better. UNC has the resources to be one of the top teams in the ACC. 


Don't forget that the ONLY reason Larry Fedora is at UNC is because they had to fire Butch Davis. Withers wasn't poo, either. I thought it was a reach at the time. Hoefully UGA shits the bed down the stretch and something happens to Mark Richt. 


Man, you really seem to care an awful lot about that school you didn't go to.

LoL... the amount of butthurt in the OP could be seen from the International Space Station.  I love it. 


ECU has waxed UNC twice in a row because we have better players & better coaches.  Same goes for Duke.  They are flat out better than Cryolina.


Nobody is saying Shane will win the Heisman.  It's just cool to see his name being mentioned by the media.  Notice how nobody in the media seems to care at all about any UNC players.


And don't worry, if ECU DOES lose Lincoln Riley, it will be to a program that would actually be a step up for Riley... UNC at this point is a lateral move anyway.  Lincoln wants to go home to Texas, and I could see Sumlin or Charlie Strong giving him a call for an OC job.

Dwayne Harris (WR) of the Dallas Cowboys is going to be an UFA this offseason.  He was very underrated in the 2010 draft, and has been productive for the Cowboys, although underutilized.  He'd give us a high-level return man, and a HELL of a slot receiver to compliment KB.  Just sayin... and he wouldn't be expensive, either.

#2974532 UNC @ ECU

Posted by ECUPantherFan on 23 September 2014 - 08:07 AM

Fedora could be in trouble.Whispers about him are starting to get louder. 


 If you look at some of his losses since he's been here: Wake Forrest, ECU twice, duke twice. Not good. I didn't like the hire to begin with. If you don't believe me you can go back and look at my posts about him from 1.5 years ago. He's not the guy for the program. 


Also, the reason why he is rotating the QB (which is a bad strategy 99% o the time) is because Trubisky is going to transfer if he isn't played. That's what I've heard at least. Trubisky had a lot of nice offers from other schools (including Alabama, Ohio State, Mich State) but chose to come to UNC because he had a better shot at playing time and starting. Fedora is just going to have to grow a pair and stick with one. If that means he pisses the other off and they decide to transfer - so be it. 


Now, I obviously don't care for LF's coaching style/philosophy and I would like to see him be removed - he has done some good things. He's with out question the best recruiter in the state and one of the top recruiters in the ACC. And he appears to be doing it legit which as we know wasn't the way Butch Davis was recruiting. Being an excellent recruiter can usually keep you at a coaching job a couple years longer than it should.


UNC could easily lose the next 3 games and then you gotta start to be concerned about making a bowl game. Hopefully UNC can saddle up and squeak into a shitty bowl game and maybe get another chance at ECU. 


Nope.  ECU will be in either the Fiesta or Peach Bowl.  That school you didn't go to might make the Muffler Bowl in Charlotte, but honestly, I can't see 4 more games on their schedule that they could win.  Hope you enjoyed the show on Saturday.  How was the official viewing party?  Lmao.  What. A. Tool.

Posted by ECUPantherFan on 22 September 2014 - 01:47 PM

still can't believe i witnessed a power conference team get ~800 yards put on them.  i can honestly say i've never heard of that.  you would think a defense would almost have to be in on it.  


Just goes to show you that "P5" doesn't mean poo.  UNC continues to do less with more.

Wow, what a joke of a game.  I thought UNC would at least put up a fight.


Scoreboard.  Again.
