Today, I plan to watch the Pirates of East Carolina beat the No. 8 West Virginia Mountaineers. A victory over WVU would be the biggest win in our program’s history and would vault us onto the national stage. I’ve been following the Pirates since the early 90s, and we’ve gotten ourselves in this position a couple of times. But, we never seem to be able to win the really big game. Today’s victory will be sweet.

Feel free to jump on the bandwagon — there’s plenty of room. The game’s on ESPN at 4:30 — so, I’ll be at the in-laws house.
