Gov. Perdue Seeks Help For ECU-Big East Admission

Last week, Governor Beverly Perdue discussed football with ECU Chancellor Steve Ballard and Athletics Director Terry Holland. Wednesday, the Governor announced she is asking for help to get East Carolina University into the Big East.

Perdue announced today that she has been calling governors in Big East states urging them to help ECU gain acceptance to their conference.

East Carolina, currently a member of Conference USA, has publicly stated the university is in favor of being a member of a conference with an automatic qualifier for football's coveted Bowl Championship Series. Conference USA's annual football champion currently does not qualify for a BCS Bowl.

Two Big East members, Pittsburgh and Syracuse, recently announced they will leave the conference for membership to the Atlantic Coast Conference.

      Typical N.C. State troll! If it was a UNC troll, it would be all about the Democratic Party. Learn to spell. The institution is ECU, as in East Carolina University.

      Yeah see, this is why we deride you uneducated haters of ECU. You try to come off sounding like you're better or something, when in reality you're just angry at your unintelligent self and your inability to advance in life. Look, I'm sorry you aren't college material, I really am, but even if you were the school you support wouldn't have accepted you! I mean good Lord, the "Nobel Pease Prize"?! I'm sure you were thinking of those little green veggies but you missed that one too, geez. To know that you go the extra step of holding down the shift key to capitalize every other word yet you can't make the effort to spell correctly just tells me all I need to know about your sorry life. Hate on! You're only embarassing yourself.

    I could care less what happens to ecu but i sure would not want Bevs help with anything!!!

    The Gov. is begging for ECU to get into a dying conference, how pathetic. I think ECU could do better than the Big Dead East. Rather be independent. Forget the BCS, its gonna die too...

    I don't think Bev's stumbling, bumbling demeanor will help ECU.

    She needs to seek help period!

    Like i keep telling u folks, Bev keeps pulling on the chain for ENC, i wouldn't be surprised if they renamed a down east county after her. You go Bev.

    If ECU could actually win a few games, maybe then this wouldn't be such a tough sell to have to get the governor involved.

    Wait, hold up. Bev is just joking.
