Pack. Pirates. Dowdy-Ficklen. Saturday, High Noon

UPDATE 12/22/09: Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium expansion is underway!!

The expansion for the east endzone of Dowdy-Ficklen stadium began on December 14, 2009. Progress is well underway. If you would like to view a live shot of the endzone, check out WITN’s webcam. Also, bids were made on the removal of the scoreboard. They varied from $7,500 to $80,000. Of course ECU chose the $7,500 bid. That bid came with the stipulation that the removal company will get to keep the scoreboard once it is removed. The scoreboard is scheduled to be taken down beginning Thursday, December 17. We will continue to keep you up-to-date as we find out more info.

However, Southern Miss is no easy test.

Q&A with GobblerCountry.com

Early last week, the editor over at GobblerCountry.com, furrer4heisman, sent me direct message on Twitter to see if we would be interested in doing an interview exchange between our two blogs. They have a great preview up for the ECU/Virginia Tech game on their site so go check it out. I just tossed together a five random questions that I thought people might want to know about the upcoming game on Thursday and the Virginia Tech football team.
