ECU or Marshall: Are the Pirates Better Than the Thundering Herd?

The ECU Pirates’ loss to Temple cost them more than just pole position in the conference; it may have cost them a shot at a New Year’s Six bowl, something a top-ranked Group of Five team is essentially guaranteed if it is close enough to the Top 25. Last week, East Carolina was the only G5 team ranked in the Playoff Committee’s poll. This week, the Pirates have slipped out...
