Over 70% of the betting public is on East Carolina in this one as they are buying in to the hype. What a complete role reversal we are seeing, as the hunter is now the hunted. East Carolina is coming off back-to-back huge upsets vs. top 25 teams at home. But now they must take to the road against a team they are supposed to beat easily. Make no mistake, this is a vastly different situation than the past two weeks. Could this team be ready to take a collective sigh of relief and get caught off-guard? We think so! Players were quoted saying, "It feels like we won a Championship." Guess who is in for a big emotional letdown here? Yes, it is going to be next to impossible to reach the emotional and physical energy levels that they did the past two weeks playing at home and winning two big games in a row. Now Tulane has a chance to knock off the Cinderella of '08, and turn that ruby slipper black. Tulane has the talent, and undoubtedly the emotional level to do just that as they will be the more "up" team this week. Tulane has already played a team of East Carolina's caliber on the road, at Alabama. They lost on the scoreboard by just 14. But if not for two special teams TDs by the Tide, Tulane could have come out with a deserved win. I say deserved because they completely out-played Bama, as they finished with 318 yards to the Tide's 172. This was on the road. Now they come home and catch what should be a physically, and emotionally depleted team. I'll back the Green Wave with the bushel of points here.
