Dear Friends,
With the recent argument with some people from Central Michigan, I want to apologize to any on this board if you were offended, felt I was out of line, or just felt it wasn't worth going over again.
I also appreciated the support I received from some of you, (although I did not expect any because it was my position, not necessarily yours) since I know some share my position. I get very emotional about Eastern, and have always defended my alma mater, especially when I feel it has been wronged.
I hope you will continue to consider me being a friend of this blog, and if you feel i am ever out of line, please let me know.

RE: Musings
Ken, you are great. By the way, I used to read Larry Middlemas and Joe Falls when I was a kid. Middlemas kept me updated on all things MAC...you have a unique perspective that most people here simply haven't experienced. I enjoy reading your thoughts, even if I sometimes disagree. Keep it up.

RE: Musings
Hi Ken,

I love your passion and support you provide EMU!!!!

I use this board for fun and really don't take anyone too seriously. However, I have used this forum to voice my position on certain matters (especially Basketball). Sometimes when I reflect on my posts, I ask myself is what I've written, the legacy I want to leave behind? I try to take the high road most times but I'm certain I fall short quite often as most of you know. The internet can be a tool to promote good will, inspire others, or to propogate positive news, but it can also be used for the very opposite. The internet and this forum have given all of us the ability to spread our messages and/or to add to conversations positively, neutrally or negatively. At the end of the day, if we take the high road, we'll reflect back and feel good inside with ourselves.

Keep up the passion and support!!

RE: Musings
Thanks Ken, there's alot of history with some of the WMU guys like Chipdip who get way out of line about their comments about EMU. CMU isn't much better but they don't have an active board on this site. We try to "correct" them when they are inaccurate. The real facts are EMU is improving in alot of areas.

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.
