Very BUGA all the time.

Ain't no damn Eagle ever tackle Leonard Fournette, ya hear? This week, Eastern Michigan pays for a beating, something they are well accustomed to. Eastern Michigan is basically living in a real life version of Fight Club except they show up and don't throw any punches. They are every boxer who faced Mike Tyson circa 1985-1989. They aren't even the guy who brings the knife to the gun fight. More like the guy that had a few too many beers, decided to take the shortcut home through the alley and wound up in the middle of the gun fight. Then everyone shot him dead and left him with a pile of cash because they felt bad.

So, apologies in advance Eastern Michigan. Though I don't know why I apologize, you signed up for this.

Odd Front Defense

When Billy talked up the Odd Front this week, I knew I needed to get a first hand look myself. Folks, I don't want to get LSU in trouble, but I was able to snap this candid picture of EMU working on their defense this week during practice. It's a really odd front if I do say so myself.

If we must, Eastern Michigan. There will be no brick walls for you to tear down in Tiger Stadium. There will only be the ones you run into. Leonard Fournette against the nation's worst run defense seems like a bad idea on paper, in concept, and really in any form. But I suppose you guys are up for the challenge?

I'm not sure why you do this to yourselves. I suppose the beatings are worth it to keep your football program up and running. But are you really up and running when you are just repeatedly being crunched down into tiny little pieces and shipped back it Ypsilanti? Much like many of the cars that come from your nearest major metro. Michigan seems fun and all, what with it's mitten shape and Great Lakes and good beer. But tomorrow is not about fun, or mittens, or lakes or beer. Okay, it's a little about beer. As in, we're all going to be 17 beers deep before kickoff because we're well aware we aren't going to see anything memorable. Good luck!
