EMU Board of Regents releases statement regarding football program


In what can be described as a short and sweet statement, interim president Donald Loppnow, President-elect James Smith, and the Board of Regents reiterated their decision to stay in the Mid-American Conference. This comes after a week of unflattering news coverage surrounding their football program, which culminated in a presentation from EMU faculty and student government on Friday to drop the status of football and move conferences in all other sports as "a moral imperative." Last week, AD Heather Lyke and other EMU officials made similar remarks to today's official statement. More on the story as it develops.
