EMU
on: July 12, 2017, 11:01:40 am
I found out today that I will be able to attend (woot!). I know several people have talked about making the trip, so even though it's a bit early I thought I'd go ahead and start the thread. Who all's in? Any plans finalized?

Regarding the game itself, Phil Steele has EMU as a bubble bowl team. On offense most of their skilled positions are back but on the line they are only returning two starters (and adding a Michigan transfer). The lost their beast of a D-lineman O'Connor but return a lot of production on that side of the ball as well. We will be playing pretty much the same physical team that handled us at The Rich last year..

We looked like a different team in the second half against them when Klugh got under center last year. They are strong physically but were were able to exploit them a bit in space once he entered the game. If we want to get where we want to go, this a game we need to win. If we can pull it off, then well to quote Eazy E there may be some possibilities. I'm having a hard time picking us to win but think we have a puncher's chance (especially with a new O-Line and new OC).

One last note, do not adjust your TV if the broadcast is in black and white, their field is gray.  ;)

We have discussed.  No firm plans as of yet.

I'm 100% in for this trip if we can make it happen.

If we get 100 fans there, it should give us home field advantage.

We don't win with a home field advantage. STAY HOME EVERYONE.
