Is it Duke, or is it ECU? Who has the best college football team in the state of North Carolina???
Duke is (4-0) and East Carolina stands at (3-1), but ECU is coming off of their complete destruction of the University of North Carolina Tar Heels and there are many football fans, including some Duke fans, that feel there is no doubt that after the win over Virginia Tech at Blacksburg and then the total demolition of North Carolina this past Saturday in Greenville, that East Carolina is the #1 college football team in the state of North Carolina….
The court of public opinion remains open, with our leaders back in the judges’ chambers and there are still plenty of fans inside and even outside of Durham, N.C. that still feel Duke is the best college football team in our state….This Durham, from Greensboro, would have to go with the Pirates after what I have seen the past two weeks…
You have to go back to old agreement, “Duke hasn’t played anybody….Elon, Troy, Kansas, Tulane, and then you have East Carolina beating teams like Virginia Tech and North Carolina from the Top 25 and playing another Top 25 team in South Carolina, well ECU seems to fit the role of “Top Team in the Tar Heel State”…..
N.C. State fans might want to chime in with the ‘Pack off a very solid start at (4-0), but the Wolfpack might want to check back with us some time late this Saturday evening, after they are finished licking their wounds, which most feel will be coming in fast order when Florida State comes to town for an afternoon encounter, at Carter-Finley Stadium….We will be pulling for the ‘Pack and hoping that they can make it back to the training room, when this one is over….
For now it is East Carolina, Duke and then take your pick for the rest of the ride and you have to say, that as for today, the team you don’t want to see in your way, ’cause they come ready to play, is #1; “The East Carolina Pirates”……
*****The only way East Carolina and Duke would end up playing each other this season, would be if they met in a bowl game.*****
