    JDLadd, that's where you are wrong, no way the pirates can get mauled, not going to happen. After the pirates defeat the R Kansas Backs, I wont have anything to be sad about because I will be celebrating the Liberty bowl victory on the flight back to Norfolk and the ride back to the beach. Anyways, GO PIRATES REPEAT 1995!

    This article is headlined "Pirates Begin Liberty Bowl Festivities." After we slay some pigs in Memphis, then it will be time for some pig pickins in the East, celebrating the Liberty Bowl win, while I-40 westbound, across the Mississippi River will have a second layer of the Trail of Tears marked by the pigs fans LOL. Well anyways GO PIRATES! DO WORK!

    ECU will lose for the sole reason that Arkansas is not in CUSA.

    Wow Will, I agree that Arkansas is a talented team Every team in the SEC is, minus Vandy. But dude, let's have a little faith and optimism in the Pirates. ECU has beaten many teams that were supposedly a lot better. Remember the Miami game in the Orange Bowl? VT in Charlotte? WVU in Dowdy Ficklen? Let's see how the game plays out before we concede to the mighty Razorbacks. GO PIRATES!!!!!!
