Yes, but we have a bowl victory and you don't. Totally wrong on the rivalry thing. You said it correctly, Western is just another game on the schedule for us. Why would we consider Western any differently than any other team on our schedule? The only difference it makes is the Michigan MAC Trophy, which Eastern possesses.
Records can change. Let's see what the records will be in the next ten years.

Ken, bowl victory? We played before 44,000 last year against Purdue. You not only have no "bowl victory" you haven't been to one in 21 years. Nor have you beaten a BCS team like Purdue, we have several. When I do see you play a BCS team it's often a 65-12 blowout that embarrasses the who league. If their are a dozen EMU fans that actually brag about the MI MAC trophy I'd be shocked. I'd be shocked if a dozen fans know it exists.

Yes you are right Ken, records can change. Last year you placed 4th in the league and stayed home, and this year you took dead last and stayed home.

to be fair, CD, they do have one bowl victory. 1987 California Bowl. That being said, we HAVE to win wednesday to shut them up. Only way to do it.

Dear Chipdip,
It was a long time ago, but Eastern beat San Jose State in the California Bowl 30 - 27. So, we do have a bowl victory to your ZERO bowl victories. I can't tell you how impressed I am that you played before all those fans against Purdue - not. You are obsessed with attendance figures. Sure everyone wants to play in front of large crowds, but that is not the be all to me. Like I have told you before, winning corrects everything. If, Eastern can string together some winning seasons, the fans will come back.
By the way, those BCS teams you have beaten, were all losers. Let's see you beat a really good team in the BCS, and then you may have something to crow about.

Oh please, EMU is the equivalent of IPFW, Tenn-Martin, SIU Edwardsville, Central Conn. State, TAMU Corpus Christie. Even a blind squirrel finds a nut now and then, but among the squirrels who gather nuts they're still thought of as irrelevant.

No, they don't give a rip about you either. That's what doesn't sink in with your 12 person fan base.

Catagory with NIU? They have 10 winning seasons in the last 20 years, and we've steamrolled them the last two times we played them.

EMU could win the MAC for the next ten years and they'd still be irrelevant. Has a lot to do with the commuter aspect of the school and your location to scUM. I'm happy you're a fan of your school, but stop kidding yourself that anyone in the league "gets up for the big EMU game." Nobody cares.

The Chimps and us are true rivals. It's born out in the size of the crowds for those games. When you play us or them the crowds are often one of the smaller ones of the season. Of course when they play at Ypsi the crowds are bursting at the seams.............six, seven thousand.

Stop kidding yourself that anyone outside of the state of Michigan cares about you because you drew 44,000 against Purdue and get consistently beaten in bowl games.

In the coin of national perception, WMU = San Jose State.

So are you.

Surely you don't consider WMU to be a "nut gatherer"? Pray tell, what nuts have you busy little squirrels been gathering? Championship nuts? Bowl victory nuts? I must have missed that.

Go to a bowl, and then we'll talk. Hell, finish somewhere other than the cellar and we'll talk.

I think we won a MAC West Championship last year.

I think you followed that up by losing to the worst team in the conference on your home floor in the 1st round of the MAC tournament.

We like to call that "The who gives a $hit title" Won 5 of the last 10, doesn't get you chit other than an occasional bid to a lesser known post season tourney. Got us an NIT bid a couple of times, but other than that it's pretty much worthless. It does get you a homecourt bid against a crap team in the MAC Tourney, but alas, even in that moment of EMU glory you lost that too 03-drunk

Dear Chipdip,
You must be one of those blind squirrels you keep talking about. I've told you twice, Eastern won the California Bowl, and all you keep saying is go to a bowl game. We've been and won. Until Western wins a bowl game, Eastern is up on you.

Still celebrating the big win in the Cal Bowl 21 years ago. Knock yourself out Ken, those were good times.

Boola boola

THIS THREAD REMINDS ME OF MY YOUTH. EVERYDAY ON THE WAY HOME FROM SCHOOL THE SMALLEST KID WOULD PICK ON SOMEONE UNTIL THEY BEAT HIM TO A PULP.

NEVER SEEMED TO LEARN HIS LESSON OR REALIZE HIS LOT IN LIFE.

IN HINDSIGHT, HE WAS TRYING TO PROVE HIS RELEVANCE.

Defending one's school is not picking a fight. I'd expect a pilot to know the difference.
