Holy mackerel! The view from the Ivory Tower of...

Arrogance must be intoxicating. I have apparently missed something in my 50 years of ECU football that leads us to believe we can just show up against anybody and have a pre-conceived expectation of victory, much less even the margin of victory. Sorry folks, but the recent ass kickings we got from JMU and NCA&T are still quite fresh wounds. There have been many more that my aging memory can’t recall. Even the scare from Chas Sou should be a brutal reminder. I don’t give a damn whom you play. You better bring your best or (as Logan liked to say) “you are eligible to get beat. Remember our opponents are practicing and lifting weights too.” Expectation is pre-meditated resentment. Folks get it in their minds that we should beat somebody or worse beat them by a certain margin and then when it doesn’t happen that way then their universe is shaken. When the game clock says 0:00 in the fourth quarter, I want to be ahead by at least one point.
