    Hey Jesse why don't you read the rest of the posts before passing judgment on others? Sam clearly stated that he thought R-Truth rooted for the other schools in NC.

    R-False, how did Southern Miss get into the equation? Yeah, Florida is playing them but the conversation has been about ECU or UNC ! I will definitely be rooting for Southern Miss. As far as I am concerned all of the Florida schools are a bunch of stinking cheats !

    I was born in Montana but moved to Florida when I was 4. I am a huge Gators fan in all sports.

    Wow, I as an ECU fan am surprised that you are actually a Florida Gators fan cause that has always been one of my two favorite SEC teams, along with Tennessee Vols of Rockytop. As much disaggreing as you do and trashtalking that you do, I would have expected you to pull for Georgia or Miami (FL) or something like that. They might crush Southern Miss but you must mean the NCAA tournament, not CUSA. BTW, Southern Miss is not that weak, as a matter of fact they beat both Ole Miss and Mississippi State and I do beleive beat Rice 2 out of 3. Also one more thing, if you hate all the NC teams, then why don't you just go move to Florida and take JDLabdog and his Tampa Gay Lightning team with you while at it. NC does not have room for you two anymore, especially ENC, on top of that especially Greenville, NC. Just go go already!

    FYI I am a Florida Gators fan. They will crush that weak Southern Miss. team out of CUSA.

    It would not surprise me if R-Lie is an N.C. State fan, a Duke fan, or a Wake Forest fan.

    R-truth, why don't you change your name to R-False because as far as I am concerned you know nothing about sports ! For crying out loud anyone with any sense knows the winner of the super regionals goes to Omaha. Either ECU or UNC will be in Omaha so neither team stinks! Maybe you are just jealous because your team if you have a favorite team can't beat their way out of a paper bag !

    All North Carolina teams stink and I hate all of them especially Least Carolina.

    I dont pay much attention to college sports but I absolutely cant stand Kerlina or city of Chapel Hill. I went to Chapel Hill 1 time when i was younger and that was one of the worst places i have seen ever. You wont beleive the types of people up in that place. Everybody is weird up there. What is really disgusting is that I saw two gay couples walk down Columbia Street I guess between campus and downtown and later a group of hippies hanging out of some bar there. Needless to mention ive heard about anti-hunting and anti-fishing groups coming from there and also from Duke. Plus Kerlina also has about 90% of the senate and house of this state members graduating from their law school. Most of them are crooked and are at fault in why this economy of this state is so horrible. So it sounds like to me that Kerlina is a disgrace to this state and it must not have a good law school it sounds like to me. Well because of all this even though I am not an ECU fan I will be pulling for the pirates
