for whatever reason i feel like espn wants us to be relevant in football. it seems like we've had some great opportunities over the years we just havent capitalized on them.

gameday in 04
ncsu vs vt game in 05 being the first game of the year. also being marcus vick's first start.
seemingly always having thursday night home games.
kicking off college football w/ south carolina the last two years.
two home thursday night games this year.
chickfila game next year vs tennessee

maybe i'm crazy though.

^^i feel that way too. especially when amato was here. before things got really sour, they were really rooting for amato and the program it seemed.

we've got the chick fil a game vs tenn in 2 years

I've thought the same before. After 4 straight losing seasons, it's a miracle that we have not one, but two ESPN games this season. Granted they're on Thursday nights, so we're not really competing with other games, but still.

Sucks that our game vs UCF is on at the same time that Penn State plays Alabama

I'll keep my eye on the state game, but any real college football fan will have most of their attention tuned to Tuscaloosa

well yeah, that's to be expected of the general college football fan. Just like the Miami - Ohio St game will be the primetime game that same afternoon.

But if you were a real State fan, you wouldn't just have your "eye" on our game.

I'd rather watch NC State play so I am not a real college football fan. Oh noes!! I'll be checking in on the PSU-Alabama game, but damn if I am missing any plays in the State-UCF game unless it becomes a blowout.

Soooo... after last night's fantastically entertaining commentary does anyone know when the next Mike Leach game will be?

It could be the only thing (besides being in Houston with my family) that could get me to watch a C-USA game.

Tom O'Brien has America all over that hat and it reminds me of this story about the 4th of July.

Think about who ECU's coach is and how bad the listening experience will be for us.

Well, it's not like he was all "yay State" in this game either. There were turnover plays that if you heard his commentary you wouldn't have thought anything had happened other than an incomplete pass.

Excepting, of course, his crush on Audie Cole.

I can't believe everybody enjoyed him as a commentator. I mean, he's quirky and odd and that's somewhat amusing but for such an offensive guru and pretty good coach, his commentary was awful. His "breakdown" of our 2nd touchdown was "he's over there, the cornerback is over here, something happened to make him go over here when he should be over there."

I'm a pretty big fan of Leach the coach, but I really hope he adds some actual analysis to his random musings for the future

at the end of last night's game the main commentator said the two of them were partnered up next week for a game in Dallas.

Gonna be interesting to hear him comment on how Riley has tweaked his Air-Raid offense into the ARRRRRRR-Raid offense.

Basically his entire former staff and some former players comprise ECU's new staff.


"And uhhhh..."

Really nice job, I liked the little text touches here and there, almost all of the Leachisms, and the HD quality is really good.

I think the only significant one I missed was the "Look at that catch! He catches it with his hands. Look at him catch it with his hands!" one, but most of it is gold.

thanks, this is excellent. I didn't get to watch the game, but now I feel like I caught up with all the stuff from the game thread....

i'm hoping Leach is coaching at CU next season, not producing more Leachisms....

actually, i didn't know he was doing the game, he sounds like Dennis Hopper after he's smoked a pound of pot.

however, he was actually pretty insightful during the game. He was explaining how our defense could be neutralized by running receivers at certain angles, stuff i had never heard before at least, maybe he was making it up.

Well you're getting a little love already from Joe Ovies, of course no credit is given.

Maybe a part two with the 4 or so left out.

ive heard of it but he explained in a fairly concise way what it does. I never played organize football beyond middle school and of all the football ive seen (which is tons) ive rarely ever heard "analysts" discuss anything i thought was all insightful
