Here is an article that is a little off topic, but interesting because it discusses stepping up to play a 1-A FBS school like Eastern Michigan can prove costly from a physical standpoint for a smaller school:
In re: Alabama State:
“We played a I-A team (Eastern Michigan) last year, and that was a good experience, but you have to be smart about who you play and when you play them. You want to have an opportunity to win them all, and you’re overmatched when you play a I-A school.”
Last year’s game against Eastern Michigan proved costly for the Hornets. Quarterback Greg Jenkins was injured and never returned to 100 percent, leaving the Magic City Classic after only a handful of plays in a game that ultimately decided the SWAC East Division championship.
“He never got right,” Barlow said. “When we talked about playing Oklahoma State, that was on the table. I want to have a chance to win a SWAC championship, and if Greg Jenkins isn’t there or (tackle) Terren Jones or some of those other guys, it’s going to be hard for us to do that.”
BTW - The EMU spring game is Sunday, April 15th!

EMU Athletics posted today an official article on the upcoming April 15th spring game. Here is the link:
"YPSILANTI, Mich. (EMUEagles.com) — The annual spring game for the Eastern Michigan University football team is scheduled for Sunday, April 15, at 2 p.m. inside Rynearson Stadium. The traditional Green and White teams will face off against each other in the final scrimmage of the spring season.
Admission is free as gates open at noon. This will be fans first chance to get a peek at the Eagles under the direction of fourth-year Head Coach Ron English. Immediately following the final whistle, players and coaches will be available on the field for media interviews, fan autographs and photographs.
Additionally, fans who want to "wear what the Eagles wear" will get their opportunity at the Athletics Equipment Garage Sale. The sale will begin at noon and be held in conjunction with the spring game. From football jerseys to cleats, memorabilia collectors and the most ardent EMU supporters will be able to select from a variety of new or game-used Eagle gear.
Those in attendance can also enter for a chance for a free, one-year lease from University Green Apartments. Entry is free but the winner must meet certain qualifications set by UGA.
Fans who cannot make it out to the stadium can still catch the spring game on their computers through a video stream exclusively on Eagle All-Access. Subscription packages for the stream start at just $5.95.
For more information, contact the EMU Marketing Office at 734.487.5642."
BTW - If you are coming to the game, please indicate such intention on the "Event" page for the game!

If you are referring to the tweet from Jay Sofen it should not come as a surprise since he is the team equipment manager.
It would be great to hear more of how practices are going. Too bad that even the Eastern Echo does not cover the team sufficiently.

Hi everyone, my bad, I was down there yesterday. I was much more impressed with the Offense then with the defense.. The offense is much father ahead of the defense. The defense seems to be inexperienced and not reading their keys and making plays. The defensive coaches were working with the Db's on keeping their eyes down and coming up on the play..
The OL looked good and my guy Gillett looked very good and the other QB's are throwing the ball much better... The RB position will be solid for us barring injuries.. I saw a few new kids at the WR position.. TE's looks very good. I think Russell should move to WR.. He caught a few TD passes that was very nice.
I didn't realize how big our DT guys are, I walked pass them and they are huge.. D. Henderson is huge and strong.. Omar will see the field this season alot.. We should be okay at the DE position and Culworth was all over the field.. I could not believe how the DL was being pushed all over the field during the pratice.. The DB's missed lots of tackles. I was thinking oh sh*t here we go again..
I saw a few recruits on the sideline and in the stands talking.. I am not sure who they were but they said they were HS and a couple were JUCO kids..

DL being pushed around could be attributed to them only being 6 or so deep.... Which means hardly any rest or breathers as fresh OL guys are rotating in and out.
I will reserve any judgement for the DL until Fall

I wasn't trying to pass judgement on the team, just reporting on what I saw while there.. I am in agreement to wait until the fall... What I was writing was only a snapshot in time of the team.. I was there and wanting to document what I saw...

By recruits, this means POTENTIAL recruits?
We aren't talking about players who have signed with EMU last month (hard to believe signing day was only 'last month' - it seems like an eternity)?
