We're only a few days into the big USA Today college football countdown, and already a pair of MAC programs have had their tickets punched. For those of you not aware, this countdown goes from worst to first, s this is not something to be excited about.
Checking in at no. 126 is EMU, making the Eagles the third worst team in the FBS for 2014 according to this countdown. The Eagles' struggles are no secret, and after an embarrassing coaching change (Ron English is a mean man) EMU does seem in store for a rocky season.
But then again, new head coach Chris Creighton has succeeded at rebuilding failed programs in the past, and while no one expects him to come in and work miracles from Day 1, maybe playing for a coach who doesn't call you a "s**tbird" will be just what the doctor ordered for this year's EMU squad.
