As many of you have heard, there has been much talk about a Pirate Out (everyone dress up like a pirate) and a Black Out (everyone wear black) for the Virginia Tech game on Nov. 5. I have many questions and concerns about this.

TOGETHER WE STAND AND DIVIDED WE FALL!

I am sure I don't stand alone when I say I am a little frustrated with the Pirates performance over the past six games. But as great leaders always do, Terry Holland has taken a stance and made it well known that Pirate Nation must stand together and remain confident and supportive of our team.

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.

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. It felt good to be loved. Tough-loved. -A story from former East Carolina football player Bob Alexander

Expect some changes in Football parking this year…

As the season draws nearer, everyone is anticipating the arrival of their season tickets and parking passes. Many of you may have received your tickets already and beginning on Friday many will begin to see their parking passes arrive in the mail as well. With the growth of the ECU facilities come many consequences. Some see them as good, others see them as bad (I guess that all depends on whether you parked in the softball field lot last year).

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

Looks as though the ECU Pirate Club numbers are up as compared to last year. According to my recent memory, these numbers are around $400,000 greater than last year at this time. 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.
