    "Not only would the Big 12 conference gain a new, ultra competitive opponent on the field but it would also gain access to one of America's most die-hard college sports fan bases headquartered in one of Sports Illustrated's 2004 Sportstown USA communities. Historically, ECU has been known for its great game day atmosphere while continually filling its bleachers with fans. In 2010 ECU Football averaged over 50,000 fans per home game and currently has plans to add another 1,000 seats to Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium by 2018, including luxury suites and a brand new press box."

    Statement from Greenville City Council

    Also from the Athletic Director:
    Guess they're going to get kicked out of their conference now. That's not the correct way to speak politically!

    This is what an ambitious institution looks like.

    That is just plain good marketing.

    "Change the conversation."

    That AD has inserted his school into every positive bit of dialog to come.

    But again, it's not rocket science.

    Yeah, but that required a bit of work on their AD's part, building relationships with other ADs and Conference Commissioners, and having a vision of where they want their program to go. We used to play E. Carolina and beat them just about every year. For that matter, that can be said for a number of current AAC and MWC schools. They have progressed so far past us it is ridiculous. None of them were satisfied in CUSA or the WAC. Now they are in the AAC or MWC. But, not us.
