Little early in getting this out (games are all at 7:30pm ET), but I'm going to be in and out for the next few hours. I'm working on a rather long mgofiction. I'm about 2/3 the way through it so far, and that'll take about 8-9 diaries. Woo lull between OSU and a bowl game (staying positive here).
As mentioned in an earlier thread, there's a Pirate Out tonight at East Carolina as they host Virginia Tech. This is THE awesome.
ECU Football is at its best when the Pirate Nation is focused on what is happening on the field because that is the one thing that is important to all of us. So dress like a Pirate, wear PURPLE, BLACK, GOLD or POLKA DOTS if it helps you get focused on the game ... but don't be distracted by what other good Pirates decide to wear.
Line is VT -12.5 or -13 that I see. O/U appears to be ~51. ECU hasn't beaten anyone of consequence this year (unless you include App State in their opener. Sigh...). I'm no jaimemac, but I think I'll give the points. I could easily see VT by 2 TDs.
The other televised game is Eastern Michigan @ Northern Illinois on ESPNU. That's NIU -21 (note: ouch). O/U ~49.
Finally, Miami(NTM) plays at Temple. I don't think it's on TV. What's the point of playing on Thursday if it's not on TV? They could have at least played on Wednesday or even as the undercard for tomorrow's Boise State game.
Anyway, discussion of the games, sexy pirates, pirates in general, how inept EMU is, etc will be here.
