Choice, Destiny and East Carolina Head Football Coach Ruffin McNeill

Two months ago ECU had just won its second straight Conference USA championship and Pirate Nation joined Skip Holtz and the team on Bagwell field for a championship celebration. Fun was had by all, yo ho yo ho. But now that the college football conference championship weekend was over Pirate fans would also brace for the inevitable speculation that the C-USA Championship victory or the bowl game to come would be Skip Holtz’s last game as East Carolina’s football coach.

Skippin’ town…

According to Fanhouse.com, Skip Holtz has accepted the head coaching position at USF. Sure, he presented many valid points for being interested in the Bulls but when you are a god in Greenville, why would you want to leave? Vent your frustration in the comment section below.

200YTL’s Liberty Bowl/Memphis Road Trip Mix

I know the budget may be tight but as my good friend, Big Erv, likes to say, "You can't put a price tag on memories" and there is no doubt in my mind that making the trip to the 2010 Autozone Liberty Bowl will be memorable to say the least. Just like barbecue, you can find good music about anywhere in Memphis. It is the home of Johnny Cash, Aretha Franklin, Issac Hayes, Howlin' Wolf and some guy named Elvis just to name a few. Most people think of Nashville is the mecca of music in Tennessee but let me quote a Texas singer-songwriter named Cory Morrow: "Nashville sucks."

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.
