I also went out and bought a PS5 just for this game! I had been playing NCAA14 on xbox360 with regularity since Covid.

Re: EA announces NIL details for video game

I will probably be purchasing a new console just for this game. I'm leaning toward Sony because of the Spider Man games. My kids love Spider man! We have a Nintendo Switch, but I'm worried they may not release it for Switch, and if they do it may not have all the features. MLB allows you to create a...

Re: Fritz Swan Song was Horrendous

We held SMU to two TDs after our offense did nothing this game and kept giving SMU possession after possession. Zero TDs in the 2nd Half. I was very impressed again with Shiel Wood’s demeanor and how he interacts with the Defense on the sideline. I’d wager he’ll be a head coach sooner than later. M...

Re: Outlaw's ticket of the week - ECU

For selfish geographic reasons, I would love to see Kentucky back on the schedule. I thought there would be more history there, but interestingly we only played 6 times during the 62 seasons in which we shared the same conference.The majority of the match-ups were between 1972 and 1985 (8 games).

I remember hearing that about the old stadium, but I have yet to find any photographic evidence. Most of the old photos show that we have slashes.

It's entirely possible Pope has entered the portal because somebody really wants him and has put together a good NIL package behind the scenes. If that's the case, he'll have a destination shortly and the portal entry will have been simply a perfunctory step to seal the deal. I really like his game...

Re: WBB vs ECU Tourney Rd #2

Went from a 98.1% chance of losing with 6 minutes left in the third to a 50/50 game with 7 minutes left in the game. Unfortunately, we ran out of gas and ECU started hitting their shots. I know that not everyone here is a fan of coach Stockton, but she got these girls to keep fighting and not give up.
