Monday musings
EMU picks up the win in amherst and the natives aren't happy. Ten years ago any win over a fbs team deserved a parade down cross street. CC has taken this program to where there are expectations.
Seems like an embarrassing loss to WMU is enough to cause a coaching change in Ypsilanti.. who knew the loss was for the PiTT Panthers in duzz's fifth year.
EMU will take on Texas State which could be dubbed the missed opportunity bowl. EMUS vs Armadillos > Eagles vs Bobcats.
I am done with replay, it ruins game flow and wrecks officials confidence.
UofM has destroyed two MAC programs who have wins over ACC teams.
Think the MAC WEST is wide open could it be our year? Is it way too early in the morning to muse?

Ball State getting blasted by Wyoming is a big deal to me. We won't know how good CMU is for a few weeks. Toledo played ND close but how much left do they have in the tank? the got blasted by Colorado St. Western looks like the class of the MAC West - but by how much? It's going to be a very entertaining season.

For Monday Musings...

Has any university had a better parking arrangement than EMU?

https://emueagles.com/common/controls/im...ng_map.png

Compare and contrast to WFT (Washington Football Team): The stadium used to hold around 91k. Traffic is a royal mess. The streets going from the beltway to the stadium are not geared for this kind of vehicular traffic. Yes, traffic backs up onto the beltway, over a mile away.

DMV folks like to take the subway, but it is a 1.0 mile walk...

Yeah. Look at the scores as they happened.

This was a convincing win!

One of the ESPN prognosticators is predicting EMU v. Purdue in the Quick Lane Bowl. Yes please.

That would be awesome. Attendance back when we were in it in '19 was 34,700 which was awesome. Bottom line is that QuickLane would LOVE to have EMU play in it again.

Previous years....
2018: 27,000
2017: 20,000

Parking is pretty bad on campus as EMU has let in a record number of freshman and many are commuting.

RE: Monday musings
I know today isn't Monday. And it isn't Friday. But if anyone wondered what Chad Bush is doing these days...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cc053XgCp1c

Starting at say 11:00 minute. Chad is doing streaming high school football. Looks like he has sponsors in Planet Fitness and Woodward Sports.

And my editorial comment: He is better on Friday nights than a lot of those ESPN3/+ guys are on Saturdays.

Chad is a natural. He is excellent and being able to call the game and also allow the conversation to flow between PxP and the analyst. NOT something Rob does well. The analyst augments the PxP person.

I loved Fountain and while Chad wasn't Fountain (and who is) I loved him calling the games.

John Fountain could be your dad. Chad, your brother. Both have very easy personalities that folks can relate too and feel like you've known them for much of your life.

RE: Monday musings
Dear Friends,
In the early Boisture days, Eastern's announcers for football games were John and Sam, (I don't remember their last names) and they were from the broadcasting department at Eastern.
I just looked them up: John Seidelman and Sam Eiler. I thought they were very good announcers.
