Does the signing day, at least for the coaches, become a distraction to bowl prep? It looks like the team will be touring the Airbus factory during the day on the 15th. Perhaps the players go on the tour and the coaches stay behind and do the signing day stuff from a conference room in their hotel. The logistics will be interesting.

Lest I be wrong, doesn't EMU have signing day, finals, and the bowl game ALL in the same week?

That is not an ideal calendar. Common Sense tells me that. I have the EMU Steve 3-bag theory as such:

Ask a person to carry a bag of groceries and a healthy person can successfully do it say >99.5% of the time.

Ask the same person to carry 2 bags of groceries (one in each arm) and the success rate drops.

Ask the same person to carry 3 bags of groceries (at one time) and the success rate drops significantly.

Or try not to bite off more than you can chew.

In this case, the calendar conspires against EMU. Will C.C. and the player personnel staff and recruiting coaches stay in Ypsi until the evening of Dec 15 while the coordinators are down in AL handling the last minute practices, walk thrus.

Add one more item to that bag for the Seniors...that Sunday after the game (12/19) is EMU's commencement. Will the team do a special "on the road" commencement for the Seniors as they have in the past?

Thanks.

I really wish that EMU could have gotten a better bowl date. Not all schools have finals and graduation next week.

I wish bowl organizers and ADs would try to factor that in. It isn't the Nth out of a list of N factors. It should be near the top.

Wishing we had drawn the QL bowl to ameliorate the problems I just mentioned (and yes, most of our students out for semester break would be closer to Detroit than Ypsilanti).

A couple years ago we were in a bar Downtown getting prepped for EMU's appearance in the QL bowl. The owner was behind the bar pouring beers and they were getting slammed. I asked him why he hadn't scheduled more staff that night with the bowl game going on, and he said that because it was Eastern they didn't anticipate the crowd they had (it was SRO in that bar and all the others in the area).

There are a load more EMU alums in the Metro-Detroit region than I think most people realize. It will be interesting to see if WMU draws like that. I think because EMU has such a strong commuter base, they have a significantly larger base of alumni immediately in the Metro area than a Western or Central does.

I don't believe EMU publishes statistics on the residence of their students (my undergrad school, Wayne State, does) so we don't really know.

That said, it is widely believe that EMU does not draw students well from the U.P., northern half of the lower peninsula, probably the western part of the lower peninsula, etc.

I believe CMU and WMU draw students well from across the state. I just don't see that many students from K'zoo, Grand Rapids, Midland, Saginaw, Traverse City, etc. come to EMU.

I'd bet most end up at CMU or WMU or a GLIAC school like Ferris, Saginaw Valley, etc.

Cole McElvany a 6'1 210 ATH from Milan just committed. He will be a PWO.

He has the highest score of all EMU commitments on 24/7 so the average score just went up. EMU has the highest score in the MAC. Ignore their silly rankings. Quality over quantity.

That's very true if they actually play with those rankings! Look at Darius Boone, and WR that just hit the transfer portal, both were very high recruits with large school offers!

It's pretty cool to see when guys recruit other guys to be there. I think this along with the portal WR makes 3 Dearborn guys. that's awesome (my family is from Dearborn). Dearborn and Fordson in Dearborn have built really good programs.

Probably only related in that EMU needed to fill a QB spot when Bryant went back to Cincinnati.

The QB room is full again.

I should have tried to develop my thought more.

I'm not suggesting it was some kind of NFL-like trade, but I thought McCoy was committed or even enrolled at Cincy. I remember being confused as I couldn't tell if he had started in September or maybe starting in January or whatever.

So did he become uncommitted or whatever from Cincy after they got Bryant to transfer?? Or was he uncommitted all along and just now deciding the grass is greener at EMU?

BTW, isn't he a dual threat QB which might be the most important question at the end of the day?

EDIT: What makes this all the more confusing. We have him in the 2022 class but look at this article:

https://thefrontofficenews.com/v2/2021/0...021-class/

EDIT2: This thought just came to me. Make he planned to enroll in January as a blue shirt or gray shirt (or whatever they call it) and pay his own way 2nd semester and go on scholarship this summer. After Bryant transferred maybe he opted for EMU.

RE: 2022 Football Commits
From the 2022 recruiting thread December 14

If we do take a quarterback in this class keep your eye on Cam'Ron McCoy 6'2 190 a high school prospect out of Missouri. He has us Cindy and UT Martin as his top 3 picks.


Steve's response:

If we do, I'm worried. I count 5 QBs, 4 of whom are scholarship (Bryant, Hutch, May and Smith).

I doubt we need another unless we fear one is leaving.

Good for us to pick him up.

Lots of maybes and endless speculation Steve. Maybe the blind man knows. Or the straw man?

Maybe EMU is Cincinnatis development team. He’ll play one year at EMU and then transfer back to Cincinnati.
