EMU has only finished below .500 two times in the last seven seasons. Meanwhile NIU just locked in its third losing seasons in the last four. Crazy that EMU is now a much more stable football program than NIU.


Yep. We are now fighting with Akron for the honor of being the worst team in the worst FBS conference. That’s why our game with the Zips in a couple weeks is so important. The losing team gets the trophy!

I’m thinking it’s better we lose out. We win these last two and Hammock starts thinking the entire season was a fluke and he will keep doing the same thing, same defense, next season. He needs to bottom out to maybe wake up.

The defense needs a change.

A consistent scheme the kids can learn. If it’s me I am running press man coverage. Single high. And praying.

Yes the kids will get burned from time to time, but it’s a hell of a fun way to give up 30+ a game. The way we do it now doesn’t work for me.

Plus, I think building press man with 2 big corners is a lot easier than running base man, 2 high and Hoping our corners can cover for 5 seconds.

It was the genius of Seattle’s defense in its hey day. You don’t need the fastest corners in the country, just the meanest.

It will allow a few exotic ways to create a pass rush. That’s what this team needs. Get exotic. Get burned. But give the team a chance to learn, grow, and be productive on defense.

So that’s why I am watching tonight. I want to see changes with eyes towards
The future.

Any chance Lombardi or Hampton give it a shot tonight?

Zero for Hampton and basically zero for Lombardi. Neither are listed on this weeks depth chart. They’re shut down for the year most likely.

They definitely need help creating a pass rush. We made Ball State's QB look like Joe Montana. Sacks are great, but they really need a lot more hurries, and the staff has had a hard time recruiting ends who can get to the QB.

First time in a very long time I am not very interested in a game on game day. Usually fly the flag and wear Huskies gear for a game. I am at home tonight and am sure I will check in a few times to see the score but in reality I am not interested for the remainder of the year. It must be because I my high and as it turns out unrealistic expectations for this year. Don’t see much hope going forward this year. The bad news is mens basketball offers no hope either. I will have to start supporting minor spots I guess.

Same with me. I’ll be watching the first half hour or until the Huskies start to get blown out, whichever comes first. Then, the wife and I will watch Wheel of Fortune and a Hallmark movie to rest my heart and nerves.

There’s nothing to really be excited about with this team now except maybe how Cremascoli looks. Maybe creddle gets a few carries. Beyond that I’d rather stare at the night sky and wait for the blood moon

Oh jeez, Brown was out early in the last game but Waylee played the whole game. Waylee has come up limping after plays in multiple games though.

If the defense is loaded up against the run, shouldn’t we call more passing plays unless they change defenses??????
