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

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*

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.

ECU played South Carolina tough this past weekend. They also have a stellar quick passing game, it could definitely happen.

Comment 03 Sep 2014

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.

Comment 21 Aug 2014

Watch out for App States QB Kam Bryant, he's a solid QB we'll see what happens. 

Comment 07 Aug 2014

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.

Comment 06 Aug 2014

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.

Comment 04 Aug 2014

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

Comment 15 Jul 2014

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" ?

Comment 11 Jul 2014

Seems odd to try and get done with recruiting before senior season but then remain open to visits/other schools...oh well, it's his life.

I agree with one of the above posters in that he would thrive if he was in Ash's system. Roby has great size, strength and athleticism but maybe lacked a little on the technical part of his game. If Ash would have been the coordinator when Roby entered the program and he was coached into Ash's philosophy he could have been a monster. Imagine Darqueze Dennard, the guy was a stud at MSU. Now imagine Roby in Narduzzi's system for 3-4 years. Nothing against Darqueze (I really like his game) but Roby could have been something else if he was getting coached up in that system. 

This is not to say Coombs was a bad coach for Roby, but I agree that in another system/philosophy Roby could have been a little better. Roby going to the Seahawks would be a great fit for him, I bet Sherman, Chancellor, and Thomas could coach him up and make Roby an effective member of their "Legion of Boom".
