For Eastern Michigan, the offseason was a rollercoaster of off the field issues, from premium seats that generated some hot sports takes to faculty suggesting dropping football all together, which generated even hotter sports takes from both the athletics crowd and the .edu faculty crowd, which is a great Venn Diagram to be in the middle of, I assure you.
Tonight, though, it’s EMU’s time to put all that behind them as they welcome the VMI Keydets to town for both team’s season opener.
