Valentine hits the game winner on Valetine's Day
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.
XB1: xMassacre_011x (corny but hey I was 15 and it sounded awesome) I play FIFA15, GTA, and Halo
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!
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".
When Rashad Frazier and Tyquan Lewis harassed quarterbacks and offensive linemen, it almost acted as the birth of a deep rotation. Tommy Schutt, Michael Hill, Donovan Munger, Steve Miller, Tracy Sprinkle and Chris Carter also are part of that group.
I'm not sure if this has been addressed elsewhere, but what the heck has happened to Jamal Marcus? He had a solid year spelling Spence, seems like he plays with a high motor. Has he somehow found his way into Urban's doghouse?
I had a teacher in high school who was a "sweeper". He said the same thing, him and his wife would enter as many sweepstakes as they could and they actually won some pretty nice things. Off the top of my head I remember him telling us he had won 2 cars, kept one and sold the other for 20k, not too bad if you ask me.
Q putting down the talent level of this roster, and the incoming class leaves a little bit of a bitter taste about him. Does he not realize the class that he came in with is very similar to the class Ohio State is signing this year?
C- Amir Williams 4* ----> C Probably won't get Turner, but they will find someone solid
PF- Trey Mcdonald 3*----> PF Dave Bell 3/4*
SF Slam Thompson 4*, ----> SF Ja'Sean Tate 4*
SF LaQuinton Ross 4* ----> SF Keita Bates Diop 4*
PG Shannon Scott 4* -----> SG Deangelo Russel 5* -->
Next years lineup if Q stays
SG- Russel (maybe)
PF/Stretch 4- Q
Bench- Kam Williams, Della Valle, Marc Loving, Trey Mcdonald + Keita-Bates, Tate, Bell
That lineup isn't spectacular but they would still probably win 20+ games
