Pirate fans donned purple and gold from head to toe walking the plank to their favorite watering hole. This year's treasure, an opportunity to watch Skip Holtz and his ECU Pirates play in the 50th anniversary of the Liberty Bowl.

Pirate fans from all over the country came out to watch their purple and gold play in the Auto Zone Liberty Bowl it was a Pirate Party for the ages. Tie Breakers in Greenville had it all--cold beverages, food, and fun. Professor O'Cools had a rowdy bunch as well. The hopes and dreams of pirate nation were crushed as the Pirates lost a close one. Pirate fans say they are proud of their hometown team.

Fans say the 2008 season will hold many great memories including knocking off top ranked West Virginia and being crowned the C-USA champions.

    It wasnt until he came to Greenville that he learned to put words together and form sentences. He also learned shapes and colors but he still hasnt figured out the difference between apple and oranges.

    Thanks for the kind words Peter. You see, the reason why I can spell correctly is because I went to school in Pennsylvania.

    To the guy who stated that the player grabbed a face mask on the fumble return: WHAT REPLAYS DID YOU WATCH? Stiff arms are legal and that was a great one. It was awesome seeing his mouth pice fly out. How can a coach run the same play 4 straight times in a game winning situation. It looked like Sunday backyard. You run fast and I will throw it to you. Coaching lost thise game.

    Dave, you don't have any friends do you? I feel sorry for pathetic people such as you but you bring it on yourselves. No one wants to be around you and you probably think that THEY have the problem. Your one good quality is that you can at least spell correctly.

    Dave. You have a horrible record when it comes to your predictions. You yourself had a losing season. ECU is still CUSA Champs.

    There's a bus headin' North with your name on it! Wow - you think we might win 5 next year? What a prognosticator (look that one up).

    When Ventrell Jenkins was running for the touchdown he grabbed the facemask of the ECU player. His mouth piece even came out. That touchdown should not have counted. Lets write to the NCAA and to the ECU Athletic dept. If enough people stand up and express their concerns there is no telling what may happen. We actually have nothing to lose. Lets show that we do not tolerate unfair play. You can get all of the information and contacts from the ncaa website and ecu website. Lets stick together Pirate Nation! Be tough!

    Well ECU you blew your chance. Now it will take at least 3 years of rebuilding to have any shot at a decent year. Say hello to 5-7 and NO Bowl game next season! HA HA HA HA HA!!! WOO HOO!! LOL!!

    Better record and bowl than any of the triangle schools. We have a basketball team and baseball to rally. Let's go Pirates!!!
