Two years later, however, English is soon to be back on a lot of prominent athletic directors' radars. He has Eastern Michigan (5-3) off to its best start since 1995. On Saturday, Eastern beat Western Michigan, 14-10, which coupled with a win the week before over Central Michigan gave the Eagles the Michigan MAC Trophy (yes, this really exists).


I'm glad to see English (and Hart) have some success at Eastern.  I hope he stays there for a few years; it's no fun when EMU is a strong candidate to be dropped to FCS. I'd actually love for Michigan to play a "road" game there every once in a while (guarenteed sellout, lots of money for Eastern, easy commute for M fans), but we know DB would never allow that now.
