Good read on the MASH unit EWU football has been this season. Coach Best has done a hell of job. :nod:


Gubrud and fellow senior captain Mitch Fettig, a three-year starter at safety, were student-athlete faces of the program going into the season, both representing EWU at Big Sky Conference Media Day.

Fettig’s college career ended in the regular-season finale at Portland State when he ruptured his Achilles tendon while trying to shed a block in the first half.

“I knew it was a serious injury immediately,” said Fettig, a two-time All-Big Sky Conference selection. “When I found out my college career was over, my world slipped up from underneath me.”

EWU’s injuries began piling up early.

• Sophomore safety and nickel linebacker Anfernee Gurley, a third-team All-Big Sky selection last season, suffered a season-ending knee injury in August.

• Junior linebacker Jack Sendelbach, who twice earned Big Sky Conference Defensive Player of the Week last season and had a career-high 13 tackles against North Dakota State, also went down in August, with a back injury.

• Junior left tackle Tristen Taylor, a 6-foot-7 310-pound wall, was a preseason first-team All-Sky selection who suffered a season-ending knee injury in September.

• Senior receiver and punt returner Zach Eagle hasn’t suited up since his knee injury at Montana State in September. He averaged nearly four receptions a game before the injury.

• Senior middle linebacker Kurt Calhoun. who had 132 tackles and nine tackles for loss in 18 starts, announced that his college career was over in October due to a spinal condition.

• Senior defensive end and Cheney product Keenan Williams was a first-team all-Big Sky Conference selection before a leg injury at Portland State cut his career short.

• Senior rover Cole Karstetter hasn’t played since suffering an injury at Portland State. The two-year starter missed the playoffs, but is listed on EWU’s depth chart this week.

• Junior Tysen Prunty, who started nine games at safety this season, missed the playoffs after being injured at Portland State. He has returned to practice, however, and is currently listed on the depth chart.

• Junior running back Tamarick Pierce went down with a knee injury in the semifinal win over Maine and won’t return for the title game. Pierce, the most downhill-style runner in EWU’s talented backfield, rushed for 550 yards and seven touchdowns on 70 carries, the best average (7.9 yards per carry) in program history.

Maybe you should switch fanbases? I hear that Townsend club is on the rise.

You forget I dropped my season tickets years ago. Watching JMU, Richmond, W&M, etc... all make an effort to improve their facilities and program while watching the Hens think this was 1972. I lost interest in the Hens a long time ago... but don't worry, my bandwagon shoes are shined and polished. 8-)

Yep, you made the right move. I spent an extra two or three years caring about the program after you left before giving up my season tickets too.

With the inferior product and the fact I can watch every minute of the inferior product for free from my living room if I feel like a little S&M, there is absolutely zero reason to buy Delaware tickets. And that's why we almost have as small a fanbase as EWU now.

I know right? Almost dipping under 200% of EWU's attendance.

Ah, the game's this Saturday! Thanks somebody for finally providing some information. 11am is 3+ hours earlier than I would have liked. Championship games shouldn't be played during the day.

So who's broadcasting the game?

SuperHornet's Athletics Hall of Fame includes Jacksonville State kicker Ashley Martin, the first girl to score in a Division I football game. She kicked 3 PATs in a 2001 game for J-State.

Yo...Waldorf and Statler...you're actually starting to make me sad. Please stop or I may have to start rooting for the Hens. I'm approaching 48 years old. Can I qualify as a fan yet?
