#3021788 Spider infestation?

Posted by ecu88 on 15 October 2014 - 08:21 AM

Def not a recluse in your pic.

I've gotten bitten by both a widow and recluse. Widows feel like a pinprick. I just home remedied it and was fine the next day.

Recluses are worse (lots of swelling) but still doesn't require hospitalization.

Pets and young one do for sure though

Thanks, my fiance is very fearful spiders.......yeah one of my old co-workers was bit by a black widow and man was that an ugly site. Life has been a little stressful of late; fiance recently diagnosed with cushing syndrome, never ending spiders, new home being built and wedding in less then a year.

TonyN and bias. This is the guy that had the full support of PFFL. That should tell you everything you need to know about TonyN


Teeray just stop, the Luck slurping by TonyN won't change. I can barely hear your reasoning over that noise he is making.

Luck is one lucky bastard. I don't like him nor do I care for the infatuation of him. He is good but he is not great. Top 15 Qb. Stats blah blah blah. People hanging off of Luck's coco sound like the orbit gum commercial.

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

Yet the butt-whooping we gave UNC seemed like yesterday.

You average 4K fans for a college basketball game lol. That is fickle and fair weather. Outside of football and baseball (when you're good) ECU doesn't support their athletic teams. Not to mention it's in the middle of no where North Carolina.... How the heck do you not have more than 4K fans at a basketball game?!?!

#3006050 Shane Carden - Heisman hopeful ESPNU interview

Posted by ecu88 on 08 October 2014 - 03:52 PM

You said a couple of things that I'm actually interested in talking about, and I tried to keep it short, but it was hard. Just take a minute and read it you may find it interesting.

The reason that we only fill up half of our basketball arena is more of a classical conditioning thing (you know, Pavlov rings the bell dog thinks he's getting a treat) than anything else. ECU moved up to D1-A football and became an independent (no conference was interested) in 1977 in an effort to grow the university as a whole, and it worked. There's more money and exposure in football and always will be, so it was a smart move. They got kicked out of the SoCon because the SoCon didn't want a team that wasn't all in. So, they actually played basketball as an indpendent for like 5 years which as you know just makes no flipping sense, and then had to toss all of their other sports in the CAA (which they actually won in men's basketball once if that's any indication). The consequence of this was that they made the choice to focus on football and olympic sports over basketball and olympic sports, reason being because there simply weren't resources to effectively keep both of the big money sports on the up and up. So, the basketball team took the sideline, they practiced in an old ROTC gym for decades and played at a decrepit Minges until 1994 when it was half-ass renovated. You don't bring good D1 players to that situation, you just don't.

This practice changed when Terry Holland was hired in 2004. His vision for ECU was cost-efficient, modern facilities and good coaching in all sports (I know, what AD's vision isn't that...but Holland was damn good). From a basketball facilities standpoint, Holland has said multiple times that he hates Minges. We all hate Minges. Minges sucks. It was poorly built and it's a complete dump, but it's there and ECU has no choice but to just figure something out. To get the improvement process started, he wanted to put a practice facility in Minges (yeah, we didn't actually get a basketball facility until 2012) and afterward renovate the arena little by little. That was successful venture, and it got a lot of energy from the fanbase. From a basketball coaching standpoint, he hired former VA Tech coach Ricky Stokes to gut and turn around the program. That was a failure, Stokes went 14-44 in 2 years and was fired. The energy that was generated from the planned capital improvements was lost by their play on the court and they were back to square 0. When he hired Lebo, who is a good diamond in the rough recruiter, the rebuilding process began. That's where we are now. I'd say we've gone from square 0 to square 1. But, the facility improvements and the fact that the team is actually decently competitive now is reminding people that we actually have a basketball team. That's something.

This brings me back to the classical conditioning part, ECU fans are trained to think football first and baseball second, football first and baseball second, they're hypnotized. They think the basketball program doesn't matter because the administration never cared about it until just recently. The practice now is trying to get people to realize that the team actually has competitive athletes now, and it's no longer a putrid team instead it's now a mediocre one that's improving. The attendance will improve this season, not by much but it will. Believe it or not, attendance was actually worse 3 years ago. UConn, Cincy, SMU, and the return of Memphis to Greenville are going to be games people are going to want to see. Also, until this year you have to understand that ECU's basketball games were NEVER televised. This year all but 6 of our games we will be on the ESPN family or ESPN3, whereas before you'd maybe see 6 total instead of all but 6. That's a big deal.

In terms of baseball, you're just wrong there. ECU's baseball is heavily supported and we consistently are in the top 30 in attendance in the country (26th in '14, 23rd in '13, 21st in '12, 21st in '11, and 16th in '10, I didn't go back farther than this but it's been this way for a long time). We also consistently have the best attendance in the state. That's just an incorrect assumption there.

And when you say it's in the middle of nowhere North Carolina, you are correct BUT you have to think about the way Eastern NC is structured, and it's actually hard to do unless you've spent a lot of time there. Eastern NC as a region is actually considered one giant community. When someone says where they're from in Eastern NC whether it's Wilson/Tarboro/Farmville/Greenville/Kinston, whatever, it's almost like saying what neighborhood you're from in Charlotte. I may own a home in Ballantyne, but I'm from Charlotte. Comparatively, someone may live in Wilson but they are from Eastern North Carolina. There's a very sizeable fanbase there.

I like to joke around and sh*t talk just as much as the next guy, but I prefer to actually have legitimate discussions.
