It was a nice day for football today. It wasn't too hot and it wasn't too cold nor was it raining. It was also homecoming for the Eagles. They had a pretty brutal road trip. It started with a trip down to Florida where they lost to the Florida Gators. Then they went over to Norfolk, where they played Old Dominion and lost (but it was a much closer game). Then they headed over to East Lansing where they lost aginst the Spartans. Their road trip ended with a jaunt on the Ohio Turnpike over to play Akron...where they lost against. The losses against Old Dominion and Akron were frustrating because it felt like they had more of a chance, especially against Old Dominion. But a loss is a loss, so Eastern returned with a 1 and 4 record.
