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.

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.

Ballin!! Lady Pirates 4-0

For the first time since the 1998-99 season, the Lady Pirates basketball team is 4-0. With a 75-70 win over American, the lady Pirates are taking steps in the right direction to compete with the best in Conference USA. For a second there, I was wondering if the Lady Pirates already had a basketball practice facility. If only the men's team was playing as well.
