    I hope Eastern makes drastic improvements during the off season to avoid a repeat of 2012.

    I’ll make my bold (yes, they will be very bold) predictions after I observe Spring practices.

    This is scary — there is only one game we should win. Even Army and Buffalo on the road will be tough for EMU since we just do not win much on the road. Coming off the best MAC season ever, we can hope the coaching changes will lead to chaos and some teams will need to start over.

    I won’t wait till spring ball – if EMU does not beat Army the team will be 1-3 heading into MAC play and coach will be fired after the first conference loss against Ball State.
