We are not as bad of a team that we displayed against Bradley. After the UofM game some of you were anointing us as MAC champs lol. I said it was a must win if we were going to be MAC champions because you have to win on the road. There’s no way this team will win the conference because we’re not a good defensive team. I do believe we can be a 4-5 best team in the conference. I watched Oakland play Toledo in person. Oakland fans didn’t support their team. I would gues about 2000 -2500 fans in the seats but don’t know what they reported. Oakland is very similar to us with no dominant low post games. Oakland came out flat against Toledo and couldn’t hit their shots. However that’s because Toledo is a top 25-35 team and loaded with talent. More about Toledo later.

EMU will have to play with great energy and intensity on defense or Oakland will win this game. Let’s see if a little more rest has them inspired to guard Oaklands shooters.

Based on our Jekyll and Hyde play so far, we’re not a good team yet. Good teams play consistently well. Let’s see where we’re at after 10 games.
I totally disagree. If you have a first round draft pick in your lineup, a very rare commodity in the MAC, as well as another nationally recognized high profile star, you sure as hell better be competing for a title. This is the MAC not the ACC. Nothing has changed in my mind. Bradley is the #1 ranked mid-major. They played great, Eastern played like crap, hence the result.

I’m not sure that Emoni is a first round draft pick this season, Bob. He’s a tremendous talent with a ton of potential but rail thin and only 18 years old. Like the article in the UofM game thread, it might be more realistic for Emoni to work towards being an NBA pick but it’s definitely not a done deal - hope I’m wrong. Emoni has got to be stronger going to the rack and not turn the ball over. Hopefully Bradley was a good wake up call. I’m sure the Eagles were emotionally drained after the UofM game, got home early Saturday morning. Had a walk thru practice on Sunday and traveled Monday and came into Bradley tired. Nonetheless Bradley exposed our weaknesses. Bradley players were bigger and stronger at every position. Plenty of time for Heath to find out who is going to bring it every night but early returns on Acuff and Billingsley are minimal.

RE: Game Week: @Oakland
This game will tell us if we're contenders, or pretenders for A MAC championship! Toledo just put up 112 points on Oakland, and beat Oakland by 22 points! Obviously, Oakland isn't very good on the defensive side! Bates will score 30-40 points possibly!

That's the Emoni factor.

Just remembered that OU has the most annoying play-by-play guy ever. Not looking forward to listening to him.

Love you man, but it’s the 3rd D1 game of the year. The contenders vs pretenders games will come in January and February. Let’s just hope for some consistent improvement throughout the OOC portion of the schedule, especially from our very green front court.

Emoni + 4,000 seat venue is going to be a sellout in SE Michigan every time.

I will be watching the game on mute. Hopefully I can get WEMU synced up close enough.

Agree, and this team is basically all transfers as well! But, if A MAC school can put up 112 points, then EMU needs to win! Bates and Farrakhan should both dominate!

Tom H. is doing a great job on the broadcast. He is keeping up with a game being played at a really fast pace.

There is a world of difference between radio and TV. TV tends to disintegrate into a bunch of babble.

I can feel it. EMU is on a 9 - 0 run. Emoni makes a trey from Novi.

BTW, the game in a nut shell. No fancy slicing and dicing the stats:

If Oakland makes 6 / 14 (rather than 7 / 14) and EMU goes 5 /12 (rather than 3 / 12), the game is tied.

Emoni has having a great game. Man, he has range on his shot. That range translates to NBA three-ball.

This game is ours for the taking. Especially if Kampe stays in that awful zone.

EMU has almost erased a 19 point lead. Hope Oakland fans are not bridge jumpers. This is a very, very entertaining game.
