    Oh, and they have a track around their field:

    Wow, what's with that 11,000+ dropoff from 2010 to 2011? Did the surgeon general find that attending Eastern Michigan games may cause cancer?

    Everybody is forgetting one of the most obvious I thought. Until recently, Kansas State.

    A good share of the posters here weren't even born when Bill Snyder took the reins at KSU, but yes, they were the epitome of a doormat. It's shocking that they'd probably need another 20 years of Bill Snyder to get to an overall .500 record and erase their woeful past.

    Similar fluctuations in previous alternating years. Probably based on schedule. They had CMU at home in '06, '08 and '10.

    I think the reasoning may have to do with attendance rules in order to be in the FBS. Granted I may be wrong, but I'm think I may have read something like this in the past.

    Eastern Michigan is also like 15 mins away from Ann Arbor. You think Iowa apparel is bad at on campus here, can you imagine all the Michigan stuff on their campus?

    ISU isn't the worst, however we have a lot of work to do.

    You can't honestly think that ISU is the absolute worst football program in Division 1 FBS of all time, do you?

    Didn't realize Iowa State is on the same level as Eastern Michigan, Akron, New Mexico State, and Idaho.

    Didn't Eastern Michigan used to be the "Hurons"??? Did Gene Smith come from there? Anyway, the PC busy-bodies got them to change their long-standing and proud name of "Hurons" to the bland and boring "Eagles" may have had something to do with local support. There are enough eagles and tigers out there.
