Bull_Trojan: With 3 tough opponents, is EMU "that bad" or do you expect EMU to be more competitive in their "winnable games", this week at UB, at Army and vs the other Michigans?
Alex Alvarado: Like most teams in the MAC, we have had our fair share of "unwinnable" games and unfortunately our record has to suffer. I'm still pretty confident in our chances against those four teams, but if the Ball State game has any indication of what EMU will be doing the rest of the season, then 4 wins is about as good as it could get for us?
AA: We sure are seeing a lot of underachieving coaches around the country get fired in these last couple of weeks, haven't we? To say English is on the hot seat is an understatement, and I know there are plenty of people who want nothing more than to see Ron English gone right now. Problem is, if he were to be fired, who will take on the responsibilities as head coach as well as the defensive coordinator? With that said, I doubt our new athletic director Heather Lyke will fire him any time this month.
AA: Khalil Mack is a monster. If Mack truly is the guy that the "NFL Draft experts" drool over, it'll be a rough day for the big men up front.
AA: The local writers out here didn't want to talk about it too much, but English made it clear that the 2012 team was pretty cocky after the 6-6 season (I know, I know) Latarrius Thomas, Bridger Buche, Trey Hunter and Willie Williams were all missed going into the '12 season. Nick Olds' preseason injury and the lack of production by Javonti Greene didn't help too much that season either.
AA: Whether we have the football Ontario Sandwich trophy or not, Jimmy John's is always across the street from campus, if that answers your question.
