My mistake on the first poll. We had a small group last week that went with Tech.

What to you think for East Carolina? We blow them out.

I think WVU will win by two touchdowns and a field goal but since I didn't have that choice I had to choose close one even though I do not really believe the game will be close. I think that Holgorsen will use the game to try some things and personnel.

I haven't researched it but I doubt ECU's defense is in the same league with VT's, so I look for more yards out of the running game.

Add Simms into the WR rotation and Grier getting more comfortable being back on the field and I could see us rolling up some points in this one.

Plus, it's a home game.

I think you are right about our offense. If we play defense by having our DBs ignore deep targets like we did on a number of plays against VT then they will roll up a bunch of points too. The whole reason we were going to win VT was how bad their offense was and they put up 31 points.

Aided by our inability to punt or to kick off.

The worst thing about our scoring is that we have to kick off.

WVU has risen to a 24 point favorite over ECU. I believe this WVU squad has many issues so why the large point spread? Maybe Vegas knows something or maybe not. maybe ECU sucks? I think we win but 24 points is too many points for me to lay. Our lousy special teams, questionable defense and lack of depth at receivers are good reason to stay off this game. WVU wins by 15 is about right. Last week: I predicted VT would win, going for 2 in a row.

ECU is bad this year. They lost their first game by 20 points to an FCS school, James Madison, although the very best. "They dropped over 600 yards of offense on the Pirates, ran for over 400 yards, and if not for a whopping 14 penalties for 172 yards, the whoopin’ probably would have been worse. Dukes running back Cardon Johnson ran for 265 yards all by his dang self." The WVU ground game will be unstoppable. Also, ECU was bad last year.

WVU is 4 points better than an FCS school. The bad news is WVU plays James Madison next year:

That loss in 2008 still makes me mad. Stewart and Mullen tried to turn Pat White into something that he never was--a pocket passer--rather than turn him loose and let him do what he does best. ECU had a good (not great) team that year, but WVU getting pummeled by ECU was not acceptable. That was the first sign to me that the hire made in the desert in the wee hours of the morning was a mistake.

That game was the f'n worst, I was there. I drove from South Florida in a tropical storm 11 hours, got lost on the way to ECU and WVU laid an egg. I would rather have root canal twice than relive that experience!

Wvu 24 point favorites ? We were 28 point favorites a few years back to a 4-7 team and that didn't work out to well.

ESPN has ECU at #4 or so in their "Bottom 10".

They're pretty bad.
James Madison is pretty good but not on par with us.

We win by 24 with Dana calling off the dogs and subbing in/out extensively in the second half (the staff desperately wants more reps for our backups - we'll get them but won't win by 40+).

The punter is only a problem if we have to punt. I really think this one could get ugly fast.

Agreed. I'll bet the whole team is angry, and want to make a statement. Sucks for ECU, but somebody has to play us this weekend.

From Dana's presser on 9/5, courtesy MSN sports:

"On if redshirt junior Billy Kinney was hurting against Virginia Tech:
"He was cramping, which I can't explain. I get how (junior wide receiver) Gary Jennings falls out because he ran over 10 miles. I get him falling out. They had No. 22, who is a really, really good player at safety, I get how he was in full-body cramps. I can't explain how Billy Kinney is having full-body cramps, but he did and it affected his punting. Hopefully that doesn't happen again.""

Don't want to ruin everyone's fun, but it may not be as bad as everyone is making it out to be...

I don't know. To me it seemed that he didn't cramp up until after he punted. He jogged on the field fine, punted terribly, and then "cramped up". If our players are cramping up after walking 3 feet it's going to be a long year

I think we score somewhere around 45 this game, and ECU scores somewhere around 13. Kick every kickoff out of bounds, and let our mascot handle the punting. We should be alright.

It's no surprise that our kickoff team is garbage. If our kicker cant boot it through the endzone every time, he needs to learn how to sky it to one of the blockers so our guys can have time to get down there and eliminate the opportunity of a return. I know I'm not the only one that expects the other team to either return it for a touchdown or get to almost midfield every damn time they return the ball.
