View Full Version : OT-One reason I'm a huge Zags fan

Although I was a Gonzaga fan before I decided to go to East Carolina, I am a senior at ECU and obviously faithfully cheer on the Pirates. However, our basketball team is and always have been painful to watch (other than our huge home victory over NC State this year that snapped our 0-57 lifetime record vs. the ACC.) But I still strongly support them and my best friend who went from walk-on to starter and team captian this year. Anyways, I said all that to say this: We got absolutely clobbered against Memphis tonight 99-58 HAHAHA. At least we held them under 100 haha. So hopefully our Zags fare a little better on the 26th!

I hope that the Zags can reverse the score against Memphis. Not likely, but I can dream can't I?

It is unfortunate that ECU is always overshadowed by the other Big three North Carolina schools but the Pirates have made it into the Tourney, once, twice? 1993 I think?

I am going way out on a limb to predict we also hold them under 100 :)

Yes, ECU made the tourney once n 93, and guess what, we faced eventual champion UNC in the first round haha. Although we get our buts handed to us in basketball, most people think we have the best football program in the state. Also our baseball team is probably the second best in the state and we compete pretty well against UNC.

I loved the ECU football team that featured QB Jeff Blake (http://websearch.cs.com/gw/boomframe.jsp?query=jeff+blake&page=1&offset=0&result_url=redir%3Fsrc%3Dwebsearch%26requestId%3Da b6de6e09885303e%26clickedItemRank%3D1%26userQuery% 3Djeff%2Bblake%26clickedItemURN%3Dhttp%253A%252F%2 52Fen.wikipedia.org%252Fwiki%252FJeff_Blake%26invo cationType%3D-%26fromPage%3DGWYTop%26amp%3BampTest%3D1&remove_url=http%3A%2F%2Fen.wikipedia.org%2Fwiki%2F Jeff_Blake) and TE Carlester Crumpler.
