Predict Your School's 2014 Record

25 March 2014 - 03:00 PM

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.


Was this the loudest BofA Stadium has been all season?

I couldn't make it to North Carolina for the game, but on TV it sounded louder yesterday than it has all season.

 

I was waiting for the announcers to make mention of the noise, but they never did, so maybe I'm mistaken.

 

For those who were in attendance... was this the loudest it has been all year?  Possibly a great sign of things to come fan/noise-wise?


ECU plans to expand stadium to 60,000 by 2016

We went from this...(42,000)

To where we are now...(50,000)

Next we're adding 2nd level to the pressbox side, as well as adding a pressbox on top that resembles NC State's.... minus all the red, obviously.  To get us to 60,000.  People didn't think we'd be able to fill 50,000 when we were at 42,000... so I'm sure there will be naysayers, but ECU's fanbase is growing every year, and we're getting 50K for teams like UAB and Memphis.  We'll get 60K when Cincy, UCONN, USF, & co. come to town.
