Tony Paul of the Detroit News has become the go to guy for MAC sports in MI.

The fears that EMU would hire a small time hire were unfounded.

He has Midwest roots, exp. as a senior assoc. AD, and a little exp. as interim AD at a SEC school.

I'm surprised that he has so much experience coast-to-coast Midwest, South, Atlantic Coast, West Coast.

Good resume for a MAC school.

His most recent schools were Ms. State and E. Carolina. Maybe we can do some games with them.

Wow. It appears that EMU didn't screw it up.

I really don't know what to say. Glad he chose us.

SEC....football territory......I'm impressed. I was wrong.

I would assume one of the things that attracted him to the job was the hint of light at the end of the football tunnel, and this new building plan? He will basically get most of the credit as it comes together, even though it wasn't really his creation.

Having said this.......I'm still reserving judgement either way.....until him and Smith make some concrete public announcements about the plan/funding/timelines.

Today is board of regents meeting. We'll see if anything new comes out.

The key will be when they start asking donors who pledged over say 5 years to start ponying up their contributions.

THEN we'll know plans are a foot.

As we discussed, I believe for this project to be implemented correctly, shovels need to be in the ground the week after Thanksgiving. That gives 9 months so that a football building is up, a new scoreboard (need that) is up, etc. etc. (remember, the scoreboard, jumbotron attaches to the new football building).

BTW, we need new lights. I was at the CMU game last year and I saw and Heather verified we rented lights.

Watching the events.

Scott comes across very well, as a very, very authentic person.

He as deep PERSONAL roots with WMU and BG ADs.

He is a real Midwestern guy. His father lives in K'zoo. Born in Sturgis. Has a degree at Ball State.

No questions for those present. Hopefully the media asks a lot of questions in the one on one sessions (Pls. ask about the building project).

RE: New EMU AD is...
My question is: With a new AD do we need to wait another 2 months for the next regents meeting to get the building plan going?

Are (were) these say four lost months without a permanent AD???
