Modern kids don't have patience. It's why so many teams play in front of half-empty crowds, even at big time programs. These fickle people are the future donors of athletic programs.


Damn kids with your rap music.

Don't get me started. Id like to put a leash on whoever is choosing the music in DFS. Its an assault on the senses. 04-cheers



LOL... now its rap music's fault we come out unmotivated?

Now I am one step closer to hearing everything.

Lets break out some Slayer Raining Blood when we raise the No Quarter flag then! That'll perk up some ears.

MEMPHIS has certainly endured painful, humiliating beatdowns of this magnitude. I almost gave up on football when Arkansas State smoked MEMPHIS 47-3 in Porter's disastrous final season (2011).

It is just mindboggling to see ECU fall this far this fast. Stay loyal, ECU fans. This too shall pass.

Or maybe average kids incurring debt to go to college aren't enamored with prima donnas that are in college because because they can play football getting a pampered free ride.
Amen brother.

There is no bridge long enough to span the leap you just made there.07-coffee3

Just want to put it out there that I was joking lol. Just think it's funny when people think that it's a shiny brand new idea to claim that the kids "today" are the worst ever.

Also funny to go through the transition. When I was in my early 20's, and every idiot over 50 was calling my generation terrible, I'd point out they should be thankful for my social security payments, considering they all seem to be working longer due to poor saving habits and living on credit.

Fast forward 15 years, and I keep having to catch myself from yelling "damn millennials with your phones and your tinder and your dress socks with shorts for some reason".

I just have to remember that, like the current generation of kids and the ones before me, my generation was the worst at one point too.

Some of the noise they are playing is fine. I just like to hear them mix it up some. Lets keep in mind that the majority of season ticket holders are old codgers like me.07-coffee3

This is always a topic that spurs an emotional response. I was a PC chapter president for about 10 years. I can tell you that the football program is a major deal at most universities. It is a researched fact that the boosters of the football programs and athletics in general are also the boosters of the universities as a whole. Athletics tend to be the catalyst that drives graduates to donate back to the school in other ways through alumni associations and University foundations. Lets keep in mind also that much of the scholarship dollar for athletics is privately donated through booster clubs like the Pirate Club at ECU. The entire University benefits from this...not just the Athletic programs.
