Yesterday's win was a good one.
Let's not blow it out of proportion.

Any win is a good win. Lets not forget that CC had a one win season.

I will say this much, this is the best team defense that I've seen in the almost 20 years that I've been following EMU football. We've got five picks already. I'm pretty sure I've sat through seasons where we didn't have five interceptions. That all starts with the D Line.

Absolutely, KPJ. You nailed it with the picks.

I assume the theory is that teams with poor DLs don't get a lot of INTs. That is, INTs are more of a function of good pass rush than simply good DB play.

And all this is cool, but we "gotta" beat Ohio.

Can't really compare the two - different eras and all that.

But what is important about this win was:

Win on the road
Win against BIG10
Win against P5 conference
Win when were not favored
Win by overcoming some poor play/mistakes/penalties

I know some want better recruiting results now - but a win like this is huge to turn that Titanic ship around. We are changing a local and national perception from 30 years of futility. Winning cures all, and (dare I say it) this season may be better than last.

Up next - Ohio U!
