Man that was emotionally almost an over-the-top experience for him and the other players.

Scholarship, Lions game, jumbotron, cheerleaders (02-13-banana), etc.

Bob W. will probably post that C.C. should also have given out scholarships to the Lions' cheerleaders. ;-)

One thing folks can learn is that this type of publicity is much, much better than spending money on marketing.

There were 50K fans at Ford Field last night who saw it plus whatever coverage on media, social media, etc.

I was at the game and they played the EMU fight song over the speakers. You would be surprised how many people could be heard singing along.

Dear vannzee,
Good to hear that. I could hear the fight song in the background of Coach Creighton speaking and giving the scholarship, and was wondering how it would be received by the people at the game. Nice to know.

One other thought:

It was a great night for the EMU FB players. It must have been one of those memorable days in the life of a student/athlete.

I don't recall the exact number, but I thought I heard Coach Creighton say from a different interview that EMU has over 180,000 alumni in the local/regional area. The fans will come back with winning...... let's win the MAC!

This data is a little old (2010) but is in the ball park (I assume the number increases every year as the are more graduates than those who die):

"Eastern Michigan University has more than 145,000 living alumni, more than 100,000 of whom still reside in Michigan."

One can get the info and reference from Wikipedia.

Found this on the EMU website:

"With over 165,000 living alumni, we encourage involvement through volunteer and networking opportunities, "
