Who woulda ever thought 15-years ago—


That UC football would be knocking on the door to being college football’s NUMBER ONE ranked team and Pirate football would be irrelevant??

Fifteen years ago, if you wanted to buy season tickets for UC basketball, you had to purchase season football tickets too (UC had very few people attending their football games even though the university had well over 35k students). The local newspaper barely covered UC football. Really!

Now, ECU is struggling for identity, wins on the gridiron, and an invite to a P5 Conference. Meanwhile, UC, a team ECU once owned on the gridiron, has achieved all of this, as well as being ranked The Number TWO college team in America.

OH THE PAIN FOR THE PIRATE FAITHFUL.
