KEY TO THE GAME

  • Don’t look forward to Texas Tech. A loss to the Eagles would be very, very bad since they are one of the weakest teams in the country. Avoid a let-down and we’ll be fine.

HOW AFRAID SHOULD WE BE? (SCALE 1-10)

One. I’m as afraid of Eastern Michigan as I am of THIS eagle.

PREDICTION THAT WILL HOPEFULLY RIGHT

The Mountaineers will cruise to a big victory as all students return/sell their books and take their finals.
