I have no problems with the Chips except 3 days a year (i.e, FB and MBB twice).

I would not scratch someone off my Christmas Card list because they went to CMU. 03-lmfao

Great article EMU79!

I expect enrollment to increase next year since our Football team should provide us with more National exposure. We saw the same rise after our Basketball success in the 90s!

I was told that the we have a big frosh class this year. I can look up the details (it is in email I received from out of Ypsi). Remember, we might be talking an increase of say 10%, not 50%. Need to remember these things are incremental, enrollment will be up (or down) 5 or 10%. Rare to see something big like 25%

Not sure how much FB has to do with it. We had a good season, but remember it was WMU, not EMU, which went to the Cotton Bowl. WMU should reap the benefits.

Steve, I heard an interview with Brad Stevens while at Butler that their admission applications increased to a magnitude of 4x after their finals run. In general, Sports certainly plays a role in the perception of a school and impacts student enrollment.

Yes, but that probably isn't a good example as EMU's bump most likely was fairly small.

Going to the Bahamas isn't like the playoffs.

Nice publicity yes, but it might only register with those who both like football and were interested in EMU.

Now, if you want to talk about the Sweet 16 year or the '96 NCAAs then we are talking about something which is on the Richter scale.

I do remember when George Mason went to the Final Four and they got their bump. That was similar to what Butler experienced.

I can't. That would eliminate all my brothers and one of my daughters.

In my younger day I was married to a Chip.

In those days, that young lady gave me her brother's UofM shirt to wear...

(now I'm getting in deep. Married to a Chip and wearing a UofM shirt. 03-lmfao).

BTW, I think most men would not eliminate a young lady because she went to the 'wrong' school. 03-idea I'll let UofM and OSU students and fans weigh in.

Now if she voted for the wrong presidential candidate, that's a 'bridge too far.' Lol.

RE: Musings
I know this was pursuant to the "debate" between Ken, myself, and Chippit. I come onto MAC BBS because we use ChippewasInsider for CMU sports, and I get to see what other fans are saying on here. Along with looking at scouting reports, injuries, overall MAC discussion, etc. I have nothing against any fanbase really, aside from UofM because I find them extremely irrational and unfair. I don't even hate WMU, it's a fun rivalry but I root for WMU in OOC games because I like to see the MAC do well. Just my personal outlook.


Onto the matter at hand, the only think that bothered me was it appears there is no evidence of what you said. We have found numerous articles stating what actually happened. You said you searched a library and found some article that stated what you said. I can't call you a liar because I wasn't there, but no one has found any info backing what you are saying. Maybe it does exist, but that is doubtful because there is no evidence of it online. You are allowed to hate CMU or any other school for that matter, I just ask you provide a legit source (link) for us to see as to your evidence of hating CMU. I think you may have remembered the facts incorrectly seeing as CMU abstained from voting to kick EMU out. That's all. Once again, I will take back everything I said if you or anyone else can provide me a source.

If someone will give me a statement which I can verify or debunk, I'll check. I have a good source was a key person at EMU during that time and would be an excellent source to tap.
