    I'm actually not even home right now so I cant play until tomorrow night. I'm still laughing over this... I guess 4 games is good enough for a bowl game and not just any bowl game, one vs a conference opponent.

    Mississippi State was terrible. 4-9. Got up 35-7 and got bored. I think the final ended up being 55-38 or something.

    EMU's In The House:

    Birmingham, Alabama - In what can only be defined as a character-building several years coaching EMU in the H4Y Dynasty, all of the misery, blow outs, close losses finally paid off as the Eastern Michigan Eagles defeated SMU 41-21 in the Papajohns.com Bowl. The victory clinches EMU's first winning season since 1995 and EMU's first bowl victory since the California Bowl in 1987. The Eastern Michigan Eagles would also like to personally thank JKyle and his UAB program in more ways than one, especially considering we won the bowl game at the site that essentially clinched us the bowl bid. We did notice a bit of irony as the day we flew back out, there was some lightning in the air. :)

    After SMU failed on a fake punt at about midfield on the opening possession of the game, the Eagles took the ball and drove it all the way down the field on an impressive, tone setting drive. The drive was capped off by Charlie Vaughn who would run it in from 11 yards out to give the Eagles a 7-0 lead. SMU though would respond with their pass happy Run and Shoot offense when Leonard Burton would ironically RUN it in from 5 yards out to push the game to a 7-7 tie that would go into the second quarter.

    EMU on their next possession would manage a field goal from 18 yards out at the 7:16 mark to make the score 10-7. It was disappointing though as the Eagles were shut down on the goal line and were beginning to wonder if that could come back to bite them. SMU would score at the 3:56 mark when Eric Booth would catch a 39 yard touchdown pass in which he blew by the confused EMU secondary to make it 14-10. EMU would tack on a field goal in the closing stages of the first half to make it 14-13 at halftime.

    Eastern would come out in the second half on a mission... well, fine.. a one man mission. Vaughn takes the carry to the left, goodbye! 77 yards later, the Eagles have a 20-14 lead. SMU though would respond and would push the lead back up to 1 when Booth would catch his second TD pass from freshman Dante Sherman at the 6:08 mark. Both teams would then exchange INT's on their next two possessions, and EMU would then take over the lead and the contest. At the 1:52 mark, Mayes through a perfect slant to Reid to make the score 27-21. In the game changing moment of the contest, Chris Wise would intercept Sherman's pass and take it back to the house from 55 yards out to give EMU a 34-21 lead which they would hold for the rest of the contest. Wise earned a free pepperoni pizza from Papa Johns for the Interception.

    Jonas Williams would add a 1 yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter to clinch the victory at 41-21. The celebration was immense. The team and the 200 fans that made the trip to Alabama celebrated like it was 1995!

    "It's an unbelievable feeling." said Coach Crumb in his press conference in front of his family and pet Eagle, Ooyiomi. "We've been the only university in this entire conference to actually experience the H4Y philosophy. All of the rest of the universities got their breaks, opportunities and the such to shine. This is our one almost significant moment. Truly great!"

    Charlie Vaughn would end up carrying the load with 24 carries for exactly 200 yards and 2 TD. The Eagles demonstrated balance offensively with 256 rushing and 225 passing yards.

    EMU finishes the campaign at 7-6.

    Go Green!

    P.S. We actually bought pizzas for the entire UAB Football team when they returned to campus. Those vouchers finally came in use!

    I retract this statement. UAB BLOWS OUT UCLA 91-6!!! All passing in the first half + All running in the second half + EVERY UCLA turnover turning into a UAB TD = BIGGEST BOWL WIN IN UAB HISTORY.

    Game Stats comming later~

    AH YES, And a big CONGRATS to Crumb. You deserve it bro. (y)
