Perplexing indeed, so much for an unbiased jury.
Great point about the defenses loading the box. IIRC Peterson had his knee injury near the end of the 2011 season and subsequently ripped off a 2,000+ yard season while winning MVP in 2012. Played the 2013 season with no knee problems and then we all know what happened in 2014. I don't necessarily like the guy but he's a freak human being, and with a year off his legs/body might be fresher.

I'm only 22, fall Saturdays were always sacred in my household and I watched a lot of games while I was young. I remember the national title game as a 9 year old but was still too young to understand the full complexity of the sport. Guys like Mo Clarret, Chris Gamble, Michael Jenkins, Krenzel stood out to me early. I did not start watching religiously until about age 13, my favorite players to watch were:
Offense - 1. Ted Ginn 2. Troy Smith 3. Beanie Wells 4. Santonio Holmes
Defense - 1. AJ Hawk 2. Donte Whitner
Best- Bojangles, Cookout, Chic Fil A
Worst- Mcdonalds, Taco Bell
My condolences, that layup made, and lost people some today. I wanted so badly to pull the trigger on bucks -3.5 but had cold feet. I ended up taking VCU +2 1st half cause these bucks usually start slow, and that "havoc" D could have messed with them. Got greedy and doubled down on OSU -3 2nd half and boy did I get lucky.
Lost on E. Washington vs Georgetown though, can't win em all. *inserts bosa shrug*

True, but they won't be on campus until summer
I really enjoyed 2009, mainly because I had a good group of real life friends and we played kickass online dynasties with 10+ players. Recruiting against your buddies for top rated prospects was awesome. We made it so there were 2 teams in each major conference (ACC, PAC10, Big10, Big12, SEC) and the team had to be on opposite divisions for CCG purposes. Luck of the draw screwed me and I had to choose an ACC team so I went with Miami. Broke a controller losing to the Ohio State guy one season in the national title when he converted a Brady Hoke-esque 2PT conversion to win it at the end of regulation.

Nice seeing Ginn going up and using his hands, making a play as a WR. Nice catch
I'm actually studying there now, it's up to 51K and like you said, it's always packed
East Carolina is 2-0 in ACC play with wins overs Virginia Tech and North Carolina. They just happen to play in the AAC
ECU played South Carolina tough this past weekend. They also have a stellar quick passing game, it could definitely happen.
Played high school ball in the Raleigh area and every year Garner had the athletes. Solid RTP area school to pluck some players from, along with Hillside and Southern Durham.
Watch out for App States QB Kam Bryant, he's a solid QB we'll see what happens.
A little off topic but it seems a little hypocritical that they use #98 for the advertisement when we all know that's Devin Gardner's jersey. #98 and #47 (who's that, jake ryan?) sold in stores yet Devin and 47 have no rights in terms of profiting off of their likeness.
Very true, I don't like watching with people who are not in the loop about the team. I also tend to talk (aka yell) at the television during games, even when I am watching them sober.
Shane Carden still has one more year left. Him and Justin Hardy will have another explosive year. I think a good team to compare ECU to would be Indiana. Both have explosive offenses and their teams rely on outscoring opponents rather than playing any defense.
I actually do attend ECU. My parents moved from Ohio down here to NC, and paying out of state tuition to go back to school in Ohio wasn't a feasible option.
ECU football is very big around here, we are actually the best team in North Carolina fwiw (beat NC State and UNC last year) ....Spurrier probably should have said that playing ECU is comparable to playing middle tier ACC teams, HA!
The girl on the right is the one who dealt it..The guy behind is smellin' it
Let's get the author's take. Maybe because he doesn't hate us as much as we hate him, he'll graciously allow us to be "middle south buckeyes" ?
I think I remember that article. For some reason white guys can't just be fast, they have to be deceptively fast!
