The excitement reached an all time high for the Eastern Michigan Eagles on Saturday afternoon as they opened their 2014 season with a win over Morgan State.  The lasting memories from the contest unfortunately will not be the first FBS win for head coach Chris Creighton, or the new "EMU Grey" turf.

People now know of EMU for their walk onto the field, which was blocked by a stack of cinder blocks.  Instead of the team running through the tall stack of cement, it took a while.   A LONG WHILE.
