What is TE's resume beyond ECU & PCC?
I truly don't know his history but I doubt it can compare to CG. As for interacting with players, they can eiither man up or unwad their panties and hit the door. Champions know what it takes to win on a large scale and whining isn't included.

Don't forget CG is all coaching the USA 14u team.
I coach travel softball in the CLT area. My other coach, her husband is the assistant to CG for this team. He just got back from FLA scouting out players for the team. The talent is amazing, and this opportunity to get in front of these kids for recruiting is amazing. Huge opportunity for recruits in 3-4 years.

I'm a big TE fan but that is just not even close to smart. Maybe after CG

I'm guessing when people are searching for "Obama born in Kenya?"
and similar bs, it gets on the radar of fact checkers.

People say stupid things all the time. I'm not sure about the case you're referring to. I didn't see or hear it. But were people sending emails and making posts on social media claiming his argument was true? I doubt it.

On the other hand, Republicans were making blatantly false claims about where President Obama was born. Fact check sites grew out of stories like this.

So having them omit something from research is not a mark against them in my mind. If they are guilty of spreading incorrect information, that would be a mark against them. I have heard of no cases where that is happening, which is why we can trust them as sources.

CG for Tommy Eason straight up. There are good reasons for either side. For example TE- has proven win-loss record and has respect of his players and never talks down to team members.
Others?

And the news yesterday is Carrier is laying off about 1/3 of the people
whose job Trump 'saved' by working massive tax cuts from indiana. Fighting globalization is not a winning strategy, positioning yourself to capitalize is. This is ECU82's point about Germany and other countries. We're being left behind.

As for immigrants, one thing is they have a much higher level of entrepreneurship than native-born citizens. When we encourage immigration we tend to get the ambitious and talented, not the laziest.

And how do you lessen the trade deficit outside of tariffs?
That goes back to ECU82's point, which is tariffs are a tax on us citizens, they will spark reciprocal tariffs (i.e trade war), and ultimately the wall comes at a cost to US taxpayers. Exactly the opposite of getting Mexico to pay.

You are right. People are the sum of their posts on BYB...
...In the last 6 months I have not seen a single post by him that was supportive of team or the coaches. Nada, zilch, none. Coach Mo does a video of giving a walk on's mom his scholarship. Video went viral and ECU got great coverage nationwide. Not a single word. Coach Mo gets some great grad transfers, 5 of them, and not a sound. Coach Mo's recruiting going well and once again not a word. Doesn't get any plainer where his real loyalties lie and it isn't what's best for ECU. BTW, I would bet good money that the line will not be anywhere close for 5 1/2 for James Madison by kickoff.

At least he outlined some plans.....
I notice after that election loss in GA even CNN is reporting with dems that say they don't have a message, Every plan the republicans have you guys immediately say it won't work without putting together a comprehensive plan of your own. Tucker interviewed a former DNC strategist last night and all he could keep saying is immigration will bring jobs. Tucker pointed out several times and asked the question, how will that bring jobs when most immigrant take jobs that already exist. Where's the job creation? The guy had no answers.

Now, Trump immediately saved some manufacturing jobs and made some deals with companies that will provide jobs. Hell, even outsourcing tech support kills job here. An engineer buddy said they have to bid all jobs now counting on cheaper outsourced labor to be competitive. Many of us see where this was going for years but no one listened. It's time to or either our economy will never return to it's old style growth.

We'll get a "sure" win, but we're losing a crap load of money
we did the math yesterday. swapping a home game with USC for GW (even with the million) is a big loss. Im guessing ECU is losing north of $1.5MM on this swap and the economic impact is greater.

Factory jobs are not coming back
Not in any significant way. If not Mexico,then China or Vietnam or any of many countries with cheaper labor. We need to stop looking to the past and train people for the future. Look at Germany as a model. Not everyone is an engineer or a scientist but they do learn a skill. We can't pay people $20 an hour to put product in a box anymore, so they need a skill.

Now look at our high schools. What skills are being taught? Community colleges somewhat fill this role but they only scratch the surface.

Keep trying to bring back coal and give miners a decent paying job but no one wants coal. So what is next needs to be the question not how do we cling to the past.

Pirate John, I hate to do this, I really do,
but, I agree with your post. It is a one sided post with your usual innuendos and deep butt ache about Ruff getting fired, Then you go on a rant about facing reality, what did I say that was not the truth. People react to you because of your body of work and the thinking that you want ECU to lose to prove a point. If you do not want ECU to lose, you sure have me fooled, and I am a tough nut to fool. But, on the top surface your statement is true but your underlying meaning is scripted in evil. I will not be shocked if JMU is favored, but ECU is going to win this close contest.

I am. I'm looking at the scheduling philosophy.........
And that's what the entire discussion involving ODU/GW/usc-east is about.

We signed a crap deal with usc-east however long ago. Basically 3 road games for 1 game in Greenville. We sign a 2 for 1 with a school that football has been in existence at for less than 10 yrs, and only D1 since 2014.

Perhaps its easier for me to understand the App deal because of the longstanding football history between the 2 schools and we haven't made a trip to App since the 70's. It also doesn't hurt that App HAS a football history, titles, and reputation to show for it

You may have missed it on CNN but Trump said.....
in his campaign he would lesson the trade deficit with Mexico and that would provide cash for the wall as well. I didn't look it up but I think we had a 60 billion annual trade deficit with Mexico during the Obama years. That's a lot of money that could be staying in the US and circulating in the gov as taxes paid.

Also to Paleales point below, the middle class in our country has to have these jobs back to not drop into poverty. Most of the middle class is not going to be working in scientific research or computer programming so the jobs they need back have been sold out to other countries that provide cheaper labor. Yes, products may go up in price but that goes hand in hand with providing work for our own people and helping our economy in the long run.

Well thanks for letting me know
I'm glad that everything 4 putt did was great, nothing he did in your eyes warrents being undone. Got it.

Let's not forget nothing has been passed in congress. You guys are obstructing, I'm sure you believe it's being done because you guys don't believe it's in the best interest. Democrats are uniform in the obstruction, happy to join them are many mainstream republicans who didn't like Trump from the start. Regardless of his election victory you are seeing Washington interests put ahead of public interests.

I'm still content with my choice as the other option was crap. We did get a pro 2nd Supreme Court justice so that is a major win.

Trump doesn't seem serious about changing
DC.

He's signing legislation sought by special interests.

He's brought in more wall st bankers and billionaire types to his cabinet and leadership than any other president.

He spends all weekend golfing on the taxpayer's dime.

He riles up his base by thoughtlessly undoing policies just because tgey were implemented by obama.

You're being played.

Your offer is quite funny. You want me to not post about something that is in my heart and my head, something that I do not run from like you run from my claim that Trump is living rent free in your head. I would think this would be easy for you since you always deny my claim.

Are you up to the challenge?
