If Lovie Smith hadn’t allowed almost 30 seconds to needlessly run off the clock to end the 2nd quarter, that last minute FG try by Eastern Michigan might have only been for the tie. Instead it was for the win.I put this loss mostly on Rod Smith. Bad play calls all game and no adjustments. He put the defense in a bad position most of the game
I'd say 5 of 6 nails are in the coffin. Not looking good for Lovie which is a shame.Winning five games is no longer a reason to keep Lovie. You only keep him if you go 3-0 in the non-con, then win 2 conference games and are competitive in the other losses.
THAT was the only way 5-7 was a possibility for retainment.
Now that Lovie lost, it is a bowl or fire in my eyes.
Good luck Lovie/team.
