There's been plenty of changes with the Eastern Michigan football program after an 0-12 season in 2009.

In fact, as puts it in its "13 Teams. 13 Days." preview package, "carnage ensued." Coach Ron English has six new coaches on his staff. He lost 39 players from last season's team -- and just 14 were seniors.

But after spring ball of 2010, English feels better about his staff, his roster and his chances of getting things moving in a positive direction.

This is not surprising. Once again fails to give the EMU folks legitimate coverage. This report from was written sometime around April-June. It even includes two players that are no longer on the EMU team! Why can't cover EMU??? No subscription money from me.

@ Saginaw - I think those 25 players also include former walk-ons. I know of one that loved Coach English but went to SGVSU because of the opportunity to play and get some scholarship $$$.

Ron is a class guy. I wish him a good season.

He lost 39 players from last season's team -- and just 14 were seniors. Does this mean that 25 players just walked out?
