East Carolina

Game is Saturday at 12 PM EST on CBS Sports Network.

East Carolina is 5-6. They had lost 3 straight before beating UCF 44-7 this past Thursday. They have bowl eligibility on the line...we have nothing on the line...

UC 20
East Carolina 31

My favorite quote from Tuberville post game on Friday:

"In terms of attitude, last week both of these teams got bowl eligible. We knew there would be a little bit of a letdown, but there wasn't any letdown on their side."

^Lol. Can't believe this guy is a D1 coach with that attitude. Basically, we got our 6th win, so how can we expect to play hard after meeting our goal!?!? So unfair that South Florida came out like they were playing for something!

If Tubbs loses Saturday does he get fired? IMO he would be gone either way...unfortunately I don't get to make those calls. What is that turds buyout?

Not sure after this year. I know he's signed through 2017 and I think NTS said it'd still be $1M after next year. I'm a little worried that we're stuck bc of the buyout now and how many openings there are around the country. We'd be pretty low on the pecking order.

I wrote Mike Bohn about my disappointment with the team not long after the game. I've written Mike over 10 times since he arrived. He never answers my emails and I never hear from him. Mike Thomas would answer my emails as did Whit Babcock. However, this time I received an email from his assistant acknowledging the athletic departments receipt of my email. No other comments were made. My point is that Bohn must have been receiving so many complaints that he felt the need to answer through his assistant. That tells me something is going on.

I also understand that last weekend, Tucker Tuberville, Tommy's son, was set to play QB at Auburn as part of senior day at the school. Tommy may have been distracted by that and his distraction may have run through the team. Maybe he was not at some practices or workouts that he normally would attend and maybe he was at Auburn watching his son's preparation for the game.

I told Mike Bohn that I did not like the team or coaches attitude and both seemed to give up against USF. I also said we need better assistants under Tommy because he leaves so much of the coaching up the assistants. I can tell we are back to paying assistants bottom dollar again because when we needed a new defensive coach, we hired the cheap from within with no experience as a coordinator of a major college defense. If we can't get the better assistants, maybe hire an entirely new coaching staff. I also said I don't like the fact we recruit so heavily in Florida and not in the region or in Ohio. We had our best teams under Kelly when we had 40 players on the roster from Ohio and or the region.

Good the team battled hard after being embarrassed last week. Season is a loss regardless, might've saved Tommy's job unfortunately.

Didn't even know a football game was going on. It's basketball season. Still eff Tuberville and anyone that supports him.

Many have argued with me that we're now a "Football" program. No other evidence is needed than Bearcattalk to disprove this theory that we have been transformed into a football program. As long as we're going to BCS bowl games, we're a football program. We spent $100 Million on our stadium and nothing has changed. We have fans who don't even know a game was played today.

I watched the whole game and enjoyed every second of it. It was a win on the road against a team trying to become bowl eligible. 7-5 looks so much better than 6-6. Mick Cronin can do just enough year after year to get us to the NCAA, just to get bounced in the first or second game and he is one the the great coaches in the country. TT can do the same exact thing in Football and he's a bum and should be fired. This fan base is classic!

Tubs will be saved by how many schools have openings. P5s like Minnesota and Illinois have already elected to hire from within before even testing the market. Next year is Belk Bowl or bust!!!
