I guess this is the thread for the MAC Media Day. See the EMU Post:

CC is on a 11 on ESPN3.
The media poll looks almost exactly like the 2020 standings. The only exception is that UB dropped down (recent HC change). With so many returning players the media is not making any bold predictions.

It's up to EMU to make the improvements in order to climb the ladder. CC commented that they need to get better at running the ball and stopping the run. He sees what we see.

Everyone in the MAC is beatable for EMU. BSU is always a close game, we seem to have WMUs number in recent years, CMU is iffy at QB (their transfer, Keller, suffered a career ending gunshot wound and is lucky to be alive), and NIU is down but may be better considering they're young. @UT looks to be the biggest challenge but EMU has played good enough to win the last 2 trips to Tol.

Weird that FB is only 6 weeks away. Wishing summer would last longer.

This is definitely one of the years that there isnt a "THAT TEAM" in the MAC - it feels like a year where a 8-4 team wins the conference.
We are the darkest of dark horses in this race but CC teams are really never favored to win. We have the talent and potential to be the biggest surprise this season in college football barring injuries.
If you go back and listen to Creighton’s prior media day interviews, he says the same things: 1) got to run the ball better2) got to stop the run better and 3) need to have more takeaways.


I love Creighton as our coach and he has really recruited quality OL to support what he said above; however, he’s not recruited well lately on the DL and LB position. We’ve lost games the last two seasons because we couldn’t stop the run. Interestingly, this past recruiting class seems to have some nice DL. Unfortunately freshman DL are never ready to play as true freshmen!

If we want to go to a bowl game this season, I believe we will need a freshman DL player to be perhaps a freshman of the year candidate. If not, then we will only win 5 games.

But with some of his team's he achieved those goals.

Counter Point: what if we just score a dang pant load of points? we give up 30 but score 40 every game? its plausible.

I hope this team doesn’t play like Genyk’s teams. How many bowls did his team go to?

Oh I wasn't being critical that brand of football was entertaining. If he had a few more close games well....and he,was paid less than 200k per year

If you aren't going to be good - at least be entertaining bad. And he was entertaining bad.

Had one of one all time favorite EMU QBs Andy Schmitt. Hutchison in some ways reminds me of his style of play.
