ARTICLE OF THE DAY

Miller Lite Locks

When you’re talking “Miller Lite Locks”, how about the Pirates?  ECU is 5-1 against the spread this year and looking to be a game over .500 for the first time since October 20, 2001.  Ironically, it’s been 4 years and one day since ECU had a winning record AND the team the Pirates beat to go 4-3 in 2001, Memphis (32-11 in Greenville).

Speaking of Memphis, be sure to join us on your radio or in person for the afternoon drive party we call Live @ 5 this Friday.  Myself and Troy D will be broadcasting live from B.B. Kings, the famous blues club on Beale Street. We’ll preview the ECU/Memphis game and a lot more Friday afternoon at 5.

Now it’s time to talk business, and business has been good, if your name is Eddie King.  “The King” is 8 games over .500, while the rest of the group from the Miller Lite Sports Bar is left standing at the ATM hoping for a back door cover by a team on their sheet this week.

With all that in mind, here are your updated “Miller Lite Standings & Picks”:

Overall Standings:

Eddie King                   14-6-1

Ellerbe                          10-10-1
