According to Rachel Carter of the Raleigh News-Observer in an article titled Pirates Face Early Challenge (Duh!) (OK, we added the duh…) there is actually some upside to ECU playing the Hokies on Saturday.

“Yes, Saturday's game at Virginia Tech has positives for East Carolina.

National television exposure, an immediate test of the squad's abilities and a spot in history.”

To read the rest of this nonsense:
However, we don’t think the Pirates’sophomore quarterback Rob Kass is quite as positive about Saturday’s big game. Kass was arrested over the weekend on charges of driving while impaired after he was stopped at a police checkpoint several miles from the university's main campus.

Kass, 20, is projected as ECU's starting quarterback as the Pirates head into Saturday's season-opener at No. 5 Virginia Tech. ECU coach Skip Holtz said "I've visited with Rob, but at this point I'm not ready to address it publicly. When I am ready to address it publicly, I will."

Kass, a native of Longwood, Fla., was arrested at 1:28 a.m. Saturday blowing a .19.

Call it pre-game stress, and rightfully so...
