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.

Pirates with a chance to host…

After the Pirates' victory over UAB this past weekend and a loss by SMU, the Pirates now control their own destiny on the road to the C-USA Championship. If ECU is able to earn a W this weekend against Southern Miss, ECU would win their division of C-USA and host Houston in the conference championship game at Dowdy Ficklen on December 5th. However, Southern Miss is no easy test.

ECU has given the go ahead for a 7,000 east endzone expansion beginning this upcoming December. The Dowdy-Ficklen stadium expansion has been much talked about and much anticipated over the past year. Student Pirate Club members and the ECU Marching Pirates would be moved from their current location to the 7,000 seat expansion. This would open up 3,500-4,000 seats between the 35 yard lines for Pirate Club members.

That “Ray of Sunshine” Moment

Unbelievably, one other thing I learned from Coach Emory was how to let myself be loved. . I have to admit, I loved this man. He would often say, “Ahhh, if I can’t put my hands on ya, I can’t coach ya. I’m jus’ showing ya I love ya.” Knowing that he was showing me “love” helped ease the pain I experienced each time he jerked my by the face mask when I missed a block in practice.

Pirate Club and Student Pirate Club numbers looking good in ’09.

Coupled with the recent Student Pirate Club numbers of 4,500 members thus far, I believe we may get the green light for the Dowdy Ficklen stadium end zone expansion.
