Re: Year 4 (2014), Game 1, Preview

Offensively it looks about even but it appears their D is clearly better than yours.

I'm worried about David Tyson out there at right end with nothing but rookie Joel Hicks behind him and Tony Sharp. You may have some massive issues this season stopping the run. The corner situation doesn't look to good either.

You're going to need to score a lot of points and your running game will be your best defense this season. Gotta keep that D seated on the bench.

The right side of your OL will be another problem area. Any plans to keep a TE/RB/FB in to block on that side on passing downs?

Sorry for the bleak outlook lol....you really need Thomas and Humphrey to put this team on their backs.

I'd hate to agree, but I kind of have to lol. Judging by their #2 corner being a 72, I'd imagine the #3 won't be too far behind, but if he is, I'd go 3WR and run it outside a lot.

You never have to apologize my friend haha I appreciate the honest and critical analysis. I love it! I think you bring up a lot of good points and concerns. There is no doubt that once again we are going to look to play clock control ground and pound offense with our dual headed rushing attack of Thomas and Humphrey. Those two guys will be our workhorses. Hopefully we will force defenses to bring guys down into the box and open up the vertical game for Johnson and Vaughn.

As for the defense, once again it is our weakness and we have a lot of youth/inexperience starting. That being said, rating wise, we are significantly better than last year. I think between Smith and Mackey, we should be able to generate a pass rush (at least agains the conference caliber teams). The right side is definitely our weakness. I actually like David Tyson. He still has a lot of developing to do but he is a really big body defensive end (6'6", 269 lbs) so I am hoping at the very least he will occupy offensive linemen long enough to allow the linebackers to crash down and make plays. That's the hope at least..

With all conference middle linebacker Colin Weingrad leaving I knew I would have to break in someone new in the middle. Hicks is young but has a lot of good raw talent in speed that I am hoping will make up for plays where he is bound to be caught out of position.

Moving over to the other side of the ball, we will definitely be running to the left and towards our strength. I typically run out of single back sets; the general philosophy being to stretch out the defense and force some of their linebackers off the field and then still power between the tackles. My tight end, Jay Phillips, is a better than decent blocker so hopefully he can help out some. The right side is going to be a weakness though, no way around that. As I am sure you noticed last years recruiting was heavy on the defensive side; this year will be the year of offensive line.

Overall, we are still a far far way from being able to hang with even most middle of the road teams and to be honest, we will be lucky to win even one of our out of conference games but we are on the upswing. We have a ways to go but it's all little steps in the right direction. Thank you again for the fantastic feedback, loving it.

Definitely a very good breakdown and analysis by the Deegeezy. You can see above my own thoughts on a lot of it. I actually like our matchups against their corners. Vaughn and Johnson are both rated in the 90's for speed so I think we can at least get a few shots down the field. Thank you for following along! Hope you continue to enjoy!

Year 4 (2014), Game 1, Purdue at Eastern Michigan






EMU junior wide receiver Nick Vaughn leaps over a Purdue defender for a fourth quarter score / Junior halfback Robert Thomas breaks free on a 38-yard touchdown in the first quarter.

Finally: Eastern Michigan Picks Up First Win Against a Power Conference with 38-31 Nailbiter Over Purdue

EMU WR/KR Reggie Johnson scores on kickoff return with under a minute remaining to seal victory | Eagles hold off 21-point fourth quarter rally by Purdue | Eastern Michigan to meet #1 Florida next week in Gators' season opener.


AP Ypsilanti – Eastern Michigan head coach Dan Clayton has never lost a season opening game. He has also never won against an opponent from a power conference. It would be the latter fact that would change as the Eagles held on for a 38-31 win over the Purdue Boilermakers. Following a fourth quarter Purdue touchdown with just under forty seconds remaining to tie the game at 31 apiece, Eastern Michigan sophomore WR Reggie Johnson would take the following kickoff back 94 yards for a game clinching touchdown. For Johnson, the defending Return Man of the Year, the score marked his seventh career touchdown on a kick return. Johnson would take home player of the game honors for his 266 all purpose yards and two scores.

Uncommon Sight: The second quarter four yard touchdown scramble by redshirt junior quarterback Mark Iannotti was his first career rushing touchdown.


The game marked the coaching debut for new Purdue head coach Nick Holt. Holt had previously served as the defensive coordinator for the Washington Huskies. He is known for his aggressive, attacking defenses and stayed true to form blitzing on nearly every down

Eastern Michigan would strike first in the game as junior star HB Robert Thomas broke free on a 38 yard score. Thomas had a very solid debut running for 90 yards in the win. He did not seem have any lingering effects from the broken collarbone, he suffered in the team's bowl victory at the end of last season.

A two yard scamper by Purdue HB Frankie Williams would leave the two teams tied at the end of the first quarter. Eastern Michigan would start to pull away in the second and third quarter as they scored 14 unanswered to take a seemingly comfortable 24-10 lead into the final quarter.

Purdue would start the quarter off with a bang though as redshirt HB Doug Gentry broke free on a 52 yard touchdown to pull the Boilermakers within a single score. Gentry would score again midway through the quarter to tie the game at 24-24. Eastern Michigan would finally respond on their ensuing possession as QB Mark Iannotti connected with junior WR Nick Vaughn on a 55-yard touchdown. Vaughn had a brilliant run after the catch that culminated with a pylon leap over a grasping Purdue defender. Purdue senior redshirt QB Sean Robinson would throw a two yard touchdown with only 39 seconds remaining to seemingly send the game to overtime, however the previously mentioned kick return heroics of Johnson would help to preserve the win.

"This is a big step forward for our program. Needless to say, you can imagine I am quite happy to have the monkey of beating a power conference team off my back." -- Eagles Head Coach Dan Clayton

Eastern Michigan (1-0) will head to "The Swamp" next week as they meet defending National Champion, Florida. The game will be the season opener for the number one ranked Gators who were idle in week one. The Gators embarrassed then ranked #2 Kansas State in the National Title game by a score of 66-16. The two teams have not met since 2004. Kickoff is scheduled for noon and the game will be broadcast nationally.

Re: Year 4 (2014), Game 1, Purdue at Eastern Michigan

Wow what a win! A 94-yard kickoff return TD after giving up the lead. Amazing.

Looks like your D held its own and didn't allow anyone to go nuts for them. Also impressive running by the dynamic duo at RB.

Just an excellent, well played game overall sir. Congrats on the big win against a Power Conference team.

Good luck at the Swamp...I'd say that my favorite experience in this game came from playing at Florida as well as Florida St., which was my favorite overall. Anyone that has this game that doesn't play a game in those two venues is really missing out.

Bet the EMU fans were on their feet chanting "Reg-gie! Reg-gie! Reg-gie!" after that kickoff return. Congrats on getting over the BCS conference hump Cheese.

Good luck in the Swamp...

Congrats on getting over the Power 5 hump!

Good luck at The Swamp. It's obviously hard to beat the #1 team, but this is college football. Anything can happen.
