I was heading east to Detroit for the Motor City Bowl, from Ann Arbor, and saw the same thing on I-94.
Ron English / Weird billboard sighting
I guess they're preparing for EMU's return to glory.
L.J. Shelton is not walking through that door...
Charlie Batch is not walking through that door...
Don't forget Kevin Walter and Ron Rice!!
RON ENGLISH IS WALKING THROUGH THE MOTH-%^$t#% DOOR!!!
Bo would probably laugh if he saw Lloyd on a sign. Ron English, the messianic football hero of EMU! But EMU needs to go quietly in and out with a bang now. With the money at stake in College football you'll see more smaller schools taking the hard edge with advertisements. With the success of the small school in college football Athletic Directors are seeing green. LeFevour said he was embarrassed by the sign on Comerica but felt if it helped the school so be it and he was for it. It's weird to think DeAngelo Williams, who played at Memphis and was the Motor City Bowl MVP in 05 is a super stud for the Panthers. Then you realize he's sub 4.5 speed and the NCAA record holder for all purpose yards playing at Memphis. Your first reaction as a Michigan fan is his record is what it is because he did it at Memphis. And that may be, but he is rocking out in the NFL. Anyhow, maybe Ron will steal some inner city recruits away from RR or is aligning himself for a comeback. I think he wants back into the Big House anyhow. If he would win the MAC in three years and we slide Im sure hed be a candidate.
The only people shocked by DeAngelo Williams in the NFL are people who never took the time to actually watch him play.
And what, exactly, is the reason why Ron could steal some "inner city" recruits?
"And what, exactly, is the reason why Ron could steal some "inner city" recruits?"
Naturally because Ron English is black. Didn't you notice?
Ron English gives Eastern name recognition they haven't had since... ? Who can really blame them for trying to get the word out and generate some awareness or excitement about their football team?
The football monopoly in Washtentaw is officially over?
The sad part is that if next season doesn't look better, I might start to think this has some credence =(
I understand that he plans to address EMU fans at halftime of their next basketball game, to tell them they'll be "very proud of our team Sept 4., 2010 in Ann Arbor..."
i always liked you.
