When is the last time EMU was 2-0?

It probably has been awhile. But then again when your first two games are at home against Howard and Alabama State, you better start 2-0.

They only beat Alabama State 14-7. I think Alabama State is supposed to be a pretty solid SWAC team, but the fact that game was so close doesn't bode well for EMU. They really dumb downed their first two games, probably so that they could get some wins. I'd be shocked if they proved to be anything more than 1A garbage by the end of the season.

Well Toledo's showing was a bit disappointing last night. I know a lot of people thought the final score would be a likely scenario, but I thought the Rockets had a great opportunity in front of them considering how they've performed in the Glass Bowl and against some other teams in recent seasons. Boise just had too many weapons once they knocked off the early game issues. It was great to see the old stadium packed the way it was.

Ohio State has some serious problems at QB (duh). 13 yards passing on 15 attempts. Miami gave up 350 passing yards to Maryland. Bauserman is 6'1" and throws sidearm. Miller is not ready.

Agreed. Let's go Noles!

Yes, please! I'm so sick of the same handful of teams at the top year after year after year.

The answer to this question is 1989. Eastern played Kent State and Youngstown State to start the season.

That year they started 3-0 with a win against Ohio University in week 3.

I think Wisconsin has about a 60% chance of running the table. They have the best offense in the country, a OK defense and the rest of the Big Ten either has severe flaws (Michigan, OSU, Nebraska, MSU, Illinois, PSU) or is downright terrible (everyone else).

Okla was hitting as hard as I have seen, taking out the QB and a receiver. The freshman QB came in and did a fine job even though FSU came up short.

This OK State vs. Tulsa game might literally be kicking off at 1 AM EST on FSN. Ridiculous.

Huh? How is that?

U. G. L. Y.

The QB play. And then leaving the timeouts on the board at the end of the game. Now granted, it wasn't likely to pull off 2 TD drives in the last few minutes, but Fickell may have sealed his own fate there with not stopping the clock in a 17-6 game to give his team at least a glimmer of hope. Nevermind the fact that the coaching staff (and AD Smith and president G) probably should be turned over completely at the end of this season given the shenanigans that the program has been nailed on.

Sadly, Smith and Gee are probably more likely to survive scandal and abuse in their program than they are a bad losing season.

The one mildly encouraging aspect of that OSU-Miami (The Lockdown Bowl) for the Bucks is that they had moderate success running inside the tackles.

Overall that game was hard to watch and harder to listen to the announcers hype it as something important. Two middling teams making mistakes was all I saw.
