Points Scored: 36.8 PPG
Points Allowed: 44.0 PPG

2011 Preview:
Offense:
Spread – Starters Returning: 5
After starting the year 5-2, ECU closed the season with just one win in the final six games, including a 51-20 Military Bowl loss to Maryland. Ruffin McNeill has an explosive offense led by QB Dominique Davis (316 total YPG, 7th in nation; 37 pass TD, 16 INT, 9 rush TD). His passing numbers in C-USA play were phenomenal: 302 YPG, 27 TD, 9 INT. Four of his top receivers return, including senior Lance Lewis (89 rec, 1,116 yds, 14 TD). But who will carry the football, with top two rushers Jon Williams and Giavanni Ruffin both graduated? No returning RB had even a dozen carries last year. The O-Line is also undergoing a lot of turnover with four starters leaving, including stud OT Willie Smith.

Defense:
Base 43 – Starters Returning: 7
ECU ranked dead last among FBS schools in total defense (479 YPG) and only New Mexico allowed more points than the Pirates’ 44.0 PPG. Justin Dixon and Matt Milner (3 sacks each) are adequate D-ends, but Jamar McLendon (7 TFL) is the only starting LB coming back. Three starting DBs return, including senior CB Emanuel Davis (9 PD).

2011 Schedule:
Sat, Sept. 3 – vs. South Carolina (in Charlotte)
Sat, Sept. 10 – Virginia Tech
Sat, Sept. 24 – UAB
Sat, Oct. 1 – North Carolina
Sat, Oct. 8 – at Houston
Sat, Oct. 15 – at Memphis
Sat, Oct. 22 – at Navy
Sat, Oct. 29 – Tulane
Sat, Nov. 5 – Southern Miss
Sat, Nov. 12 – at UTEP
Sat, Nov. 19 – UCF
Sat, Nov. 26 – at Marshall

StatFox Take : The Pirates avoid two of the better teams in the West Division in Tulsa and SMU and only play five true road games. Although ECU does not leave the state of North Carolina until Oct. 8, it has three very difficult non-conference games to play during that stretch with South Carolina, Virginia Tech and North Carolina. The Pirates will be hard-pressed to get back to a bowl Prediction: 5-7 record.
