And I Agree with your observations
This is an interesting game. ECU's strengths/weaknesses kind of match up against ours. Good thing they can't run the ball. McM is doing great taking what the D is giving.

Looks like the $50 tickets backfired, there's PLENTY of empty seats. Homecoming. That's what you get for trying to rape the alumni when the wins haven't been there. The same thing will happen with seat licenses.

ECU’s quarterback is easily the worst I’ve seen in years.
Announcers spent time drooling about him being tebow like and apparently refs think so too protecting from from being touched ejecting Patrick Johnson...Ahlers a big boy getting bubble boy care

Crowd looked ok in the first half. Everyone got bored and left.

Instead of putting ECU away has ruse been busy sleeping n the second half ? Did someone wake him up when ECU finally scored? This is not McM’s fault at all he’s done a good job

We are clearly going to lose this game. No killer instinct. SMU 2.0

The WR could have won the game there. Freshman mistake.

The usual boring, crappy team showed for homecoming. Way to go to get the casual fan interested in the program.

535 yards of offense, and 372 through the air.

Were we dour and cynical? Yes.

Remember what this nightmare used to be. We used to lose this by 2-3 TDs+. We're still feeling the effects of it as a program. You win more now to heal the fanbase that will appear in 10 years from now.

ECU quarterback Ahlers threw 67 passes completing 21 for 360 yards.

As for since the first game against Wake Forest to present, critical drops by our wide receivers are killing us.

Surprised we only rushed for 163 yards? McMillan was 12/28 for 372 yards and 3 tds! :D

This is true. Both of our last two possessions ended when a WR dropped a pass that would have given us another first. Both were easy catches. That's not on McMillan.

Great win by defense that wouldnt quit.....I kept thinking smu 2.o and 83 rams vs saints (game 16) finish but glad they fixed those doubts.Houston losing to Temple really sets up a improbable run but wrs gotta make those crucial catches.....no let up!!!! Roll Wave

Can't take a joke? That's ok, I got a chuckle, almost as much as I do when you express an opinion.

Shouldn't you be enjoying a glorious fall day on campus? Who is obsessed? I just came in from the park with my boys, and am getting ready for the Wave game. You're on a damned Internet bulletin board posting up and down about other peoples' obsessions (or what you mistakenly THINK they may be).

Here's a quote for you:
BE SOFT
Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that, even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.

Kurt Vonnegaut.


ROLL WAVE!
I can take a joke. I always take you. :lol: The time stamp here is an hour off. LOL. It takes no time to get to the stadium from my house. Once again you flat out lie to protect your narrative. Only posted that here once to you.

You'd be wise to take to heart what you quoted. Deal with your demons. My pity to you and more importantly to your family. May they not end up as miserable as you.

As noted thank goodness for the D. We were already down Sample and then lost Johnson yet they kept after it. Kudos to them. Offensively we were boring as usual but threw enough to keep them from knowing what was coming. The receivers deserve credit for turning relatively short passes into long TD's. McMillan was less than 50% and is for the season. He's clearly not the answer. Hopefully Howard will be.

One more time of a bad football team beating another football team. Fortunately that's what's left on the schedule.

As for the price I hope they raise them to a $1,000,000 next year. They weren't there to see the game. They were constantly in the aisle clueless that others were trying to watch. Looked completely lost even though it's as easy as can be to navigate the tiny thing. When people would tell them to move they had this puzzled look as to what the problem was. You could tell they were Tulanians. Let them go do community service. Leave the football to us reral fans.
