Detroit Free Press: EMU faculty, students: Drop out of Division I football

For the most part, this is simply one EMU professor doing a bunch of rallying here, so I don't think the program is doing any serious rallying to the idea of dropping yet. But it's something to watch -- something about EMU has made it impossible to succeed. The MAC is premised on even talent and relative parity, and the Eagles haven't been good in a long, long time.

Hey, Connor

The Trib (Blake Toppmeyer): Draft hopeful Q&A: Connor McGovern

Q: What was that like to have a teammate to go through this as you guys are preparing for the next step?

McGovern: "It’s been fun. Most guys don’t have a guy like that. It makes it a lot better, because" otherwise "you can be by yourself a lot. Not a whole lot of guys are doing what you’re doing, especially at your same position. It was definitely nice having him around for the entire time, just to have someone to talk to and to have someone to push you."

Q: Between the end of last season and the draft, what were some things you were really focused on that you wanted to prove that you could handle?

McGovern: "I wanted just to prove that I could play guard. I was taking it one step at a time. I was really looking forward to the Senior Bowl, but unfortunately, had a little" hamstring "injury there. Other than that, everything went really well."

Meanwhile ... one wonders what NFL scouts actually do if they're only now getting around to noticing Kentrell Brothers' ability...
