Various topics addressed by the community surfaced in the Eastern Michigan University Athletics Forum that took place in Pray-Harrold Thursday night.
The Eastern Michigan University football team’s 18th consecutive season without a winning record kept the bad taste in the fans’ mouths.
Eastern Michigan University’s 65 total yards was 495 short of Bowling Green State University’s total on Saturday. Only four of those yards came from the Eagles’ passing game in a 58-7 loss to BGSU on Senior Day at Rynearson Stadium. “We tried about everything we had,” interim coach Stan Parrish said.
For Eastern Michigan University, stringing wins together has been a challenge over the past two seasons. The last time the team won back-to-back games was in 2011, over Central Michigan University and Western Michigan University.
The bye week couldn’t have come at a better time for EMU. The past four weeks have been a wild ride for the football team here at Eastern Michigan University.
Being the closest to winning a game since week one, Eastern Michigan University lined up for a two-point conversion in an effort to tie Western Michigan University with 51 seconds left in the fourth quarter. “We practiced [this] two-point play since the first day we got here last spring,” EMU interim head coach Stan Parrish said. Freshman quarterback Brogan Roback took the snap and handed it to Ryan Brumfield.
Eastern Michigan University Vice President/Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Heather Lyke announced Friday that head coach Ron English has been relieved of his duties effective immediately. Lyke issued a further statement through EMU Athletics early Saturday afternoon on the decision to relieve English from coaching duties: “I received a tape of a situation in which Coach English had addressed the team and used wholly inappropriate language. We hold our coaches and staff to high standards of professionalism and conduct and there is no place, particularly in a student environment, where this language is appropriate. The statements made by Coach English are absolutely unacceptable. My decision to make a change in leadership of our football program was the culmination of a lot of factors including the comprehensive review of our program, the competitive performance and this tape. Our primary interest is in the well being and success of our student-athletes and this will continue to be our priority in every decision we make and every action we take. My focus moving forward is on the quality of our student-athletes’ experience as well as the search process for the next leader of our football program.”
The nightmare of a winless conference record is a possibility as Eastern Michigan University (1-8, 0-5 Mid-American Conference) comes down to its final three games of the season.
For the first time this season, Eastern Michigan University starting running back Bronson Hill did not play a full game as they fell to the University of Toledo 55-16 at the Glass Bowl. “[It was a] coach’s decision,” EMU head coach Ron English said on sitting Hill.
With Eastern Michigan University (1-7, 0-4 Mid-American Conference) losing its seventh straight game last week, maybe a little bit of quarterback controversy can bring some excitement to fans headed into this week.
One week after setting a rushing record amongst Football Bowl Subdivision quarterbacks, Jordan Lynch used his arm to lead No.
Lynch broke a Football Bowl Subdivision quarterback record with 316 rushing yards on 32 carries. He also ran in three touchdowns and threw for 155 yards and another touchdown. He’s fourth in the FBS with 932 rushing yards and ranks first among quarterbacks.
For the second time this season, Eastern Michigan University was a touchdown away from having a lead in the second half. “We had a chance to go up seven,” EMU coach Ron English said.
Eastern Michigan University student athlete Demarius Reed was found dead today at 7:15 a.m. at the University Green apartment complex, located at 700 block of West Clark Road. The investigation is being treated as a homicide.
Bronson Hill’s 234 all-purpose yards in last week’s loss at Army were the most by an Eagle this season. Eastern Michigan University (1-5, 0-2 Mid-American Conference) will look for its junior running back to lead the offense in Saturday’s matchup against the Ohio University Bobcats (4-2, 1-1 MAC) at Rynearson Stadium at 1 p.m.
Army’s triple-option offense took over in the second half Saturday afternoon against Eastern Michigan University in a 50-25 victory at Michie Stadium in West Point, N.Y. EMU (1-5, 0-2 Mid-American Conference) lost its fifth consecutive game, letting up at least 42 points for the third consecutive week.
After six weeks of college football, Eastern Michigan University and Army are coming close to desperation mode for ending the regular season with a winning record.
While making history in the process, the University at Buffalo Bulls dominated a struggling Eastern Michigan University Eagles defense for its first Mid-American Conference victory of the season this Saturday at UB Stadium. Since its inaugural meeting in 2001, the Bulls defeated EMU (1-4, 0-2 MAC) for the first time in program history with a 42-14 victory, which included an offensive showcase by UB (3-2, 1-0 MAC). The 28-point margin was the second largest win for the Bulls this year, falling short of a 29-point win it had against the University of Connecticut last week.
Two teams seeking relevancy in the Mid-American Conference will square off Saturday when the Eastern Michigan University Eagles head east to face the University at Buffalo Bulls.
Eastern Michigan University fought off a late fourth-set push from the University of Toledo Rockets for its first Mid-American Conference win of the year at the Convocation Center. EMU defeated the Rockets (29-27, 17-25, 25-16, 25-23), to bounce back from its 3-0 loss to Ball State University the night before.
