    This is Pathetic. This team has officially self-destructed. The pirate nation is falling apart. I never thought I would say this but Ruff's got to go. In fact the whole staff has got to go!

    Do not say anything negative about ECU football on Boneyard Banter or they will threaten to remove you from their site.I kept it clean.They do not like constructive criticism of this poor excuse for a team.I am a ECU fan.I realize we have a delusional fan base which they do not appreciate you pointing this fact out.If you say anything derogatory about the team you will be accused of trolling the message boards.Keep drinking the Kool-Aid.You will need to mix it even stronger as the weeks go by.Two more wins on this schedule if we are lucky.21 turnovers and counting!

    So let me get this straight. ECU wants to join the Big East but get blown out by teams in their own conference. I believe ECU needs to stop trying the hand with THE BIG BOYS because they are just not in the same league. Sorry.

    People do not understanding the day we played Va Tech, it was one of their worst performances (i.e turnovers). The reason Va Tech won is because of the " talent divide" between the two programs.Superb athletes can neutralize miscues. Both programs were independents during my school days and now Va Tech is lightyears ahead of ECU.Reality can be harsh.We must not except mediocrity because is such a low standard.
