Oh you got me! Guess I shouldn't mess with a Boise fan. I mean your school is from Idaho, after all.

Well the sooner you learn the better........ Cold night here in B-Vegas! Actually I am in Boulder. Just watched the Wyoming Pokes beat Colorado. Pac-12 is over-rated.

Honestly many of us didn't think it was likely for ECU to get an invite. When WVU left, that was the deal breaker for me, frankly I didn't care if we got an invite or not but you couldn't write this script if you tried.

I mean honestly taking USF, SDSU, SMU and UCF are CLEARLY nothing more than a market grab, don't kid yourself. Boise was a desperation grab for AQ points that looks pointless now. To the fans that have been snubbed that's hilarious. Over time we heard (especially from CatsClaw) about a massive TV contract coming, how the BE could raid the ACC....blah, blah, blah we heard it all. ECU's name has been dragged through the mud relentlessly by some posters on here, way before I remember seeing your first post.

I think the BE is a great basketball conference that should have just split or added Temple and Memphis.

Understandable, but the fanbase lost all credibility once they took personal jabs at specific institutions for their lack of success or "unworthiness." Both the Catholics and Fball members.

Also the constant BE bashing, name calling (Big Least) etc has gotten old. Even my 8 year old son knows when to stop with these lame wordplays.

Dig the Broncos and the Blue Field and think its a travesty that Kellen Moore wasn't invited to the Heisman party, but I can't stand a schmuck who sits around all day waiting for his chance to dog on ECU.

ECU.. I followed the lines down and I think you dinged the wrong guy...

Nope. Was bustin WTR for the +2 he gave the d*pSh*t before him. To respond to the d*pSh*t before WTR directly for his d*pSh*t comment would be pointless as he is a d*pSh*t and wouldn't understand logic anyway. Hence the "there should be a law for contributing to the delinquency of moron........." comment. It promotes him to continue on, but then d*pSh*t wonders why wise cracks are getting fired back at him personally.

With that being said the joke was great and he got his +2.

I hope you're not talking about me, it was a D@#M link about your school, then all of a sudden you punk out. Because I posted it, you down ECU & all our fans. You've never beaten us, so take that. Now that you are That all high and mighty enjoy it. I hope the BIG EAST burns & you too. The link was not pro or con, it was a F..n link. This is not a Big East board so get a grip.

"Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned." ECU is that scorned woman.

And here is what I was talking about when I said this stuff is a 2 way street. If people are going to post garbage like this then this is going to be a never ending cycle of crap.

Which is the "crap"? My post or the one to which I was responding. I notice that you still haven't taken the OP to task. You sound pretty defensive.

Well he did at least link an article and offered smething to discuss. You just hurled an insult at ECU that wasn't at all on the topic of his link. The topic is Boise's get out of jail free card from the BE. This can either get on that topic or end up in the smack forum. I'm betting smack sooner than later.

If you hadn't noticed the "topic" is to insult the Big East. That was blatantly obvious right in the title by calling it a "pre-nup." Stop trying to legitimize his comment as though it were an attempt at serious discussion.

He insulted our conference & he received an insult to his school in return. Sorry that you & any other ECU fans undeserving of an insult were offended. The shot was not intended at you but to give him in kind what he gave us. That shouldn't be so hard to understand.

Be real!!! that was the title of the article. If it was the ACC you would be laughing. [/b]This is not a BE board so get over your self.

The Catholics might provide access to big markets but the big problem is they don't have football which is where the real TV money is made. They're useless from September until late November.

hhmm how ironic, this was one that I quickly found by using the search tab. I'm not going to comb through this entire message board to know ECU loves to bash the BE, if you want you can look em up, just type in "Big Least" and 95% chance that someone said that is an ECU fan-he will also follow with why it is the BIG LEAST. Other key words include "Suck" "irrelevant" "bottom-feeder" - you get the picture.

Hell this board has basically become ECU vs. Everyone else, even fellow Conf. USA mates. What's your beef against Memphis? So if you haven't figured that part out then, well start reading the past threads the past month or so and you'll see why this board is split. One side Purple Pirate, with a few Eagles, and the other side...everyone else.

RE: Boise St makes the BE sign a Pre-Nup (L)
Wow, seems like the BE allowed Boise State to basically dictate whatever terms they wanted to get them into the league. I wonder if the other new additions got similar terms or if it was only Boise. Looks like there is a lot of trust and everyone is on the same page. I'm sure it's gonna work out great!

Thanks for proving my point. Way to let a few fans generalize an entire fan base. Maybe you should just stop posting on a conference realignment board if you're going to take it that hard.

I've been coming to this board since it was created a few months ago just to see what the latest news on conference realignment was. It got to a point where I had enough of ECU fans bashing the BE, constantly complaining why they get no respect, complaining about how they are more deserving, degrading other schools, not just BBall onlys but FBall members who have not lived up to their AQ status. Blah blah blah blah blah....yeah don't deny it because you know you have. Did you guys have a secret meeting to plan how to annoy everyone? I've had enough of "drop DePaul, USF, Rutgers, etc...they haven't amounted to anything in the BE and bring nothing to the table, we are WAY better than those schools." Just shutup, accept your fate and try again in a few years.

And why are you guys upset? The guy takes a cheap shot at the BE by saying the BE is desperate and thinks that's the end of it? When someone else comes back with a snide remark you get upset? Whats wrong? Like to dish out the insults but get mad when someone spits it back at you? Are you a bunch of junior high school girls?

On one of the threads after the BE announcement, a USM poster said congratulations and said it was time to move on-if they had been more successful they might have gotten in; you guys on the other hand shift to fifth gear with the BE belittling. Sarcastic comments about "Marketing" how the BE is "DEAD" and how they wont get any bigger TV offer than that of what ESPN asked them because...what was it? Those Conf USA teams that the BE picked up didn't help them with a big TV contract how are they going to help the BE?

When TCU announced their move to the BIG XII their fanbase said sorry it didn't work out guys, we wish you the best of luck and went on their way. Some still post in the BE board without actually insulting any institution for their "unworthiness."

Class ECU;many of you do not have it.

03-lmfao I never said I didn't make comments like that on occasion. Like I said, it's been relentless attacks on ECU going WAY back on this board. I'm not gonna lie we're a bunch of haters and we've got a BIG chip on our shoulder. It's in our blood, love us or hate us, we really don't care but we speak our mind. In all honestly I meant everything I said in that post and I make no apologies for it. Truthfully ECU and the BE have nothing in common, we'd be a worse cultural fit than.....well Boise State. The whole thing just became comical to me.

You keep furthering my point.

Do you even like a college football team? I am not going to fall for a post that sinister and ridiculous. You seriously spent all of this time searching old posts? That is a reach. Obviously you didn't even read that thread, as I was responding to a Temple fan's post earlier in the thread.

The fact is you nor most of the posters on here do not understand anything about ECU or its history (and I wouldn't expect you to). In the mean time, you should come to an ECU football game in the next two years against UNC and VT, respectively, and then you'll truly get a glimpse of why college football is special at ECU. Then maybe you would understand our point of view with conference realignment.

Actually it was pretty quick, like I said earlier, The search bar on this board -type in a key word and boom...

Anyways, we all understand how passionate you pirates are but your passion turns into arrogance and that arrogance turns you into a bunch of A-holes who think the world revolves around ECU and that the world DOES OWE ECU something. Obviously humility does not come with ECU fans. When others, not just BE folks, confront you or call your BS, you all get on the defensive and continue to spew more garbage. Haven't you noticed that practically all the posters have a snide remark against anything you guys say?

Your pride for your institution is clouding your better judgement and it turns simple "smack talk" to pretentious ridiculing rant. You guys are not Ohio State so don't stick your nose so high up in the air. Like I said earlier, if you guys don't like being called out or have the script flipped on you, then don't say anything.

Oh yeah, I actually am a Big college football fan or else I wouldn't be on these boards. The great thing about coming from a school with no FBall is I can watch these teams without any bias. Go to the BE boards and read some of my swipes at the BE FBall schools because of their lack of on field success then they have the audacity to blame the BBall onlys for it...I'm like wtf, the BBall schools were not responsible because you couldn't win the game on Saturdays. I was actually one of the bigger advocates for ECU to join the BE but then you guys just went on a rampage about how your more deserving and how the BBall schools are responsible for the downfall of the BE. Just had to bring you guys down a few pegs and will continue to unless I see some humility from some of your posters...

RE: Boise St makes the BE sign a Pre-Nup (L)
For God sakes man, no ECU fans believe we're all "high and mighty." We have to go through that with UNC and NC State fans all of the time. There have been PLENTY ( including me) of Pirate fans that have commended Boise State, UCF, UH, and SMU on moving up to an AQ conference (until 2014 that is). Some fans are bitter, but some of these people are high donors within the University who have given thousands of dollars to try to further the sports programs at ECU. I'm not writing a sob story, but that's the fact of the matter.

If you had actually comprehended my last post, you would understand that message board posters make up about .5% of our entire fan base. After all, it is a MESSAGE BOARD.

RE: Boise St makes the BE sign a Pre-Nup (L)
Oh I comprehended your last post, that .5% is a good indication of what your fanbase is. How many DePaul fans do you know are on this board? Hint, there is only one other...and his name starts with Frank and ends with The Tank. Are we a good indication of what DePaul fans are? From what you and all the other ECU posters say, you guys are very passionate about your program, I mean how many times do we have to see your attendance numbers? But believe it or not you guys carry the ECU name and how you carry yourselves with that Pirate banner is indicative of how your fans are,....unless only the A-hole Pirate fans ( the .5%) are currently being represented on this board right? If that .5% is what people see and they happen to be A-holes, then everyone will perceive ECU fans as A-holes. Seeing how there are many arguments between ECU fans and other fans, its fair to say that ECU now has a rep of having A-hole fans...because of that .5%. Congratulations.
