Belk Bowl is working with C-USA to get ECU
should we not make the Liberty Bowl. ECU vs. Duke likely matchup.

"The Belk Bowl is trying to work with The American and C-USA to possibly get ECU to the Belk Bowl at season's end."

Would Duke try to avoid a bowl game vs. ECU

Where is that quote? I heard the guy on Pirate Radio mention it, and I'd love to have ECU in that game if possible.

No, I don't think so.

Good question. I don't think so. That match-up would be the two best teams in NC against each other in the states best recruiting area. Would be good exposure for both schools.

We haven't played since we beat them in Skip's first game as a Pirate in 2005.

A lot of football left to be played but if we do not win the CUSA Championship I would love to have ECU in the Belk Bowl against Duke.

I see no reason why Duke would be opposed to playing ECU in a Bowl game. We have played them fairly regularly over the years. I know they chose not to renew the series after the 2005 season but they were trying to lighten up their OOC scheduling.

RE: Belk Bowl is working with C-USA to get ECU
The first problem the Belk Bowl would have here is their AAC tie. I have a hard time seeing the AAC willingly vacating their 3rd best bowl. I think the Belk is stuck with an AAC team unless they can work a trade that both the partner bowl and the AAC is willing to accept. At that point, the CUSA offices could get involved to see if they can convince one of their own bowls to give up a CUSA team so they can give ECU to the Belk Bowl. I guess its possible, but it is very very unlikely.

I didn't see anything on the Bowl's site giving that quote, all I have heard is the aforementioned guy on PR1250's Live@5.

I think it could be worked out easily. Maybe switch Belk and Military... send an American team to play an ACC team in Annapolis instead.

I would think it would be best for The American's relationship with the Belk Bowl to have the team that will bring the most fans. We will be in the conference in several months anyways.

They wouldn't be. We are essentially an AAC team. Everything we do the credit for better or worse is already going to the AAC pretty much just like when Louisville went to the Big East and got to transfer their rankings for BCS credit. You take what you do this year with you.

It would be good for us, it would be good for the Belk Bowl, it would be good for the relationship of the AAC and Belk Bowl. I'm missing your point. Bowls are traded all the time, I'm sure the financials or deals can be worked out and mostly likely the AAC, ECU, CUSA, and the AAC all want us there. This would be a great consolation prize if we didnt' get to Liberty Bowl.
