Forum to discuss EMU athletics moved
On Dec. 5, Eastern Echo Sports Editor Eugene Evans and Managing Editor Al Willman will host a panel discussion on the state of Eastern Michigan University football and other athletic programs.
The event was created in light of the strong reaction to our recent columns on keeping or eliminating the football program, as well as the firing of former coach Ron English.
Anyone who attends is more than welcome to express his or her opinion or any concerns about EMU Athletics and how football and other sports operate.
EMU Vice President of Intercollegiate Athletics Heather Lyke and other athletic department officials have been invited to attend.
The event will be held in 216 Pray-Harrold at 6 p.m.
Admission is free.
