Behind The Scenes at EMU
I had a rare opportunity to spend a day with Eastern Michigan's football program leading up to last week's 55-0 loss to Michigan at Michigan Stadium.
I was only there for a day, but there are so many things that go into preparing for a game -- even one you are expected to get crushed in.
My story appears in today's Detroit News and it only scratches the surface of what I wanted to write. There were so many things I observed.
You may not think much of Eastern's program. It has struggled for about 15 years. But Genyk will turn that program around. The Eagles won't be great. But they are going to be respectable and contend for the Mid American Conference title.
Check out my story today. If any of you want a copy of the longer original version e-mail me at Fosternews@aol.com and I will send you a copy of that. We had to knock it down a lot for space reasons.
But check the story out and let me know what you think.
It is part of my weekly look into college football. My next stop is urban football at Wayne State University
