In addition, we will be hosting our first playoff game in Cheney since 2004, which leads me to some random thoughts…

1 of 6 – We will be making our eighth appearance in the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision Playoffs in 2010, ranking the Eagles among a select group of 25 schools with at least that many berths.  It is also the fifth berth in a seven-year span as EWU’s appearances in 2004 and 2005 were the first time the Eagles had ever made back-to-back appearances until this year.   The only other five teams to have qualified five of the last seven years are Appalachian State (2005-06-07-08-09-10), Montana (2004-05-06-07-08-09), New Hampshire (2004-05-06-07-08-09-10), Richmond (2005-07-08-09-10) and Southern Illinois (2004-05-06-07-08-09). – Pretty special and select company.

KUDOS – Our facilities and grounds crew team has done a tremendous job preparing Roos Field for Saturday’s game versus Southeast Missouri State.  We cannot thank them enough for the effort that they have put in.

Snow Removal

WE NEED YOU – It is not every season in which we have a home playoff game…we need you to come in mass to support the team on Saturday.  Please go to www.goeags.com for all ticket information.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS – On behalf of Eastern Athletics, we hope that everyone had a safe and enjoyable Thanksgiving and wish everyone the very best during this holiday season.

Until next month…Go Eagles!!

Bill
