RE: EMU predictions
Dear Rocket Fans,
Eastern is not going to be beaten by twenty points as some of you have predicted. You haven't played anyone of note, and lost by twenty points to the only team of note. You have no defense. Eastern has a very good chance of winning this game.

Once again we dont use our awesome QB like we should in the first half to bury these guys. We try to run on fresh defense instead of waiting until they are tired.

Most teams only play five guys in the box leaving us no choice but to run

St.Pete,
This is no longer Matt Campbell's Toledo.
You have not been paying attention this year if you still think this way

so good a chance of winning that Vegas made Toledo a 10 point favorite.... so you must know more than Vegas, or you are just going to never return to the board if they lose. That is pretty typical.

RE: EMU predictions
Dear MotoRocket,
You don't know me, and I don't know you, but to think that Las Vegas is the be all to predicting winners in any athletic contest is just laughable. I hope you do know that much of their predicting is based on who is betting on whom. So, just because most are betting on Toledo, doesn't mean that is how it is going to turn out. That is why we play the game.

RE: EMU predictions
Rockets run D is terrible, but fortunately EMU's run offense is even worse - last in the MAC, and 30 yards per game less than the terrible #11 BGSUx. Terry Swanson has more rushing yards than the EMU team. Rockets pass D is much better and so I do not believe EMU will be able to light up the scoreboard, in spite of UT's questionable D.

EMU's D is good, but they haven't exactly played a bunch of offensive juggernauts to this point. The Rutgers QB through for more yards against EMU than any other team they faced, for example. They certainly haven't faced a passing attack like Woodside, Thompson, Johnson & co. Miami fans swore that the Miami D would sack Woodside on every play and he'd be lucky to make any throws ... yet he threw for 340+ yards and 3 TDs - would have had even more if not for 4-5 out and out drops. I don't expect EMU to be better than Miami in pass defense.

EMU's much improved, but expect the Rockets to win by 2-3 TDs, as seems to be the consensus here.

You guys still working on knocking down that brick wall? Thank God this one's at UT, your team can save a little energy by not having to problem solve that old sledgehammer vs fired clay equation...
