I’ve got a feeling we rain on their HC and win 45-23.

31-6 good guys early in the 4th. This has turned into an arse kicking. Defense looking great.

With SEMO throttling JSU the racers are on top in the OVC. Huge game next weekend.

Big win for the Racers! Next weekend is the biggest football game in a generation! It’s hard to imagine EKU winning much with that 1975 Woody Hayes offense. Nice to see the team put this one away easily. Last two weeks we’ve been underdogs and finished the game with our backup QB running out the clock - gotta love that.

The boys deserve a big crowd. When was the last time they had a meaningful game in late October

Neal’s fact o’ the game, Mitch Stewart is the first Racers coach to notch back to back wins at EKU since Don Shelton in 1960 and 1962.

What is going on at EKU. They are having issue with getting fans there also. Pictures from the murray stands showed the entire upper deck empty. I remember going there to a packed house and that damn hill also full

Getting waxed 56-7 the week prior will have that effect.

It goes a lot deeper than that. Last year they only won 3 games in the OVC, and the year before it was only 2. They're looking at 3 straight years of being nowhere near the top of the conference. For a program with their history, that's going to cause a lot of attrition among their fan base. Not to mention that their offense is dead last in the OVC and extremely hard to watch - that's not going to put butts in the seats either.

In the “surprise to no one” category - EKU fires their offensive coordinator today.

EKU DISMISSES OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR ANGELO MIRANDO

RICHMOND, Ky. – Eastern Kentucky University offensive coordinator Angelo Mirando has been dismissed from his position, Head Coach Mark Elder announced today.

Assistant Head Coach/Tight Ends Coach Tommy Zagorski will serve as the offensive coordinator for the remainder of the 2018 season.

Elder will address the change at his weekly press conference on Monday at 2:05 p.m. in room 216 of the Moberly Building.

Through seven games this season, Eastern Kentucky is eighth among nine teams in the Ohio Valley Conference in scoring. The Colonels are ninth in total offense and ninth in passing offense.

“I want to thank Angelo for all of his effort, hard work, dedication and passion for EKU football,” Elder said. “These decisions are never easy because they impact relationships and the lives of real people. However, in evaluating our program, this is a decision that is in the best interest of our student-athletes.”

Long over due firing.... :wave: The upper deck at the stadium is closed, siting safety issues as the reason.. Considering the lack of coaching the past 10 yrs, we had a decent crowd. Yes, winning would help..
