So who do we want to see come and start the next rebuild? My vote is for Chip Long.

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.

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
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.

This one is on beard man.

I personally think Rod Smith is to blame for this one. He did too much to involve Brandon Peters and make him the hero. Corbin got over 100 yards and was barely utilized. We have transfers from USC at WR and I don't think they were targeted until the last scoring drive. But can't forget about the actual kids and the play on the field. Can't win a game against anybody with all of those penalties and turnovers.

The defense was better in the 2nd half our offense didn’t help them at all.

I'd say 5 of 6 nails are in the coffin. Not looking good for Lovie which is a shame.

The program looked great against MACron. Three questions.

1) Is EMU that much better than MACron?

2) Has IL regressed?

If you want to cheat, the answers are - no and yes.
