Who needs a 141? Sa'Derian Perry exploded onto the scene at NCAA's and is only a sophomore. Kid still has tons of potential.

Having worked at this cesspool of a university, this should come as no surprise to anyone.

A real shame.  It seems to me that tuitions at all schools keep going nowhere but up, and yet they still need to cut these programs?

They had an endowment left by Dean Rockwell.  What they did or are going to do with the money, who knows.  I never worked at a more crooked place in my life.

Maybe it got sucked into the gridiron:

 

https://www.freep.co...rams/440893002/

 

 

"A number of faculty and students have called for the university to drop out of Division I football — either completely dropping the program  or moving down in division, which would decrease the cost. In recent years, Eastern Michigan, with about 21,000 students, has spent more than $27 million a year from the university's general fund on sports.

 

Many of the issues with Eastern Michigan's spending have centered on football, which has had poor performance and low attendance for years."

Would not surprise me if the snakes finagled the endowment to funnel into other sports.  David Bolyard was doing a great job and this is his reward.

Why is it a cesspool? Never been there or anything, just curious

tuition goes up ,in Colorado anyway , because state funding goes down. In Colorado (state funding) is so small it’s probably better off to go private. I’m not sure where Michigan sits in funding but we’re 48th out of 50 in state funding.

Football is slowly dying nationally (and unprofitable at EMU) and then there's this: https://projects.new...hris-creighton/. The team has had one winning season in the last 10 (30-91 in that time) and is 15-34 with Creighton at the reigns. 

 

Great story on football and athletics at EMU from two years ago by David Jesse of DFP: https://www.freep.co...uture/94600812/

Worked with incredibly dishonest people.  Won't name names or go into too many details, but here's a small example.  They fudged (lied about) football attendance to keep their D-I status--big no-no under NCAA rules, and the least of what these frauds did.  Won't go into what I witnessed in wrestling--a nightmare.  Personally, I was lied to more times than I can remember.  I'm hearing Bolyard wasn't even notified before this announcement was made.  Typical.

Such a shame, and they got a new updated wrestling room a few years ago too and the program was on the upswing.

He was the assistant coach there in the late 90s under a schizophrenic regime.  He probably knows it as well as anyone would.

Damn, sad news. Most universities lose a lot of money on athletics. I think I saw a factoid that said there were about 20 "profitable" D1 athletic departments in the NCAA, and they were profitable because of 1) Football 2) Bball.

The future of college athletics is D3. D1 will be only for those programs that generate revenue. It’s a joke when you see so many 1/2 empty D1 football stadiums on Saturdays. Wrestling is alive and well at the D3 level because funding and philosophy is within the culture of education.
