Congrats, CMU football fans

I want to congratulate the many thousands of CMU student football fans who attended the CMU vs. Alcorn State University football game last Saturday.

What a great turnout by the students. Your numbers may well have been the largest student turnout for a season opening football game in many years!

As the football team embarks upon a tough MAC football schedule, Coach Jones, his staff, and your fine football team, who beat MSU (wasn’t that FUN!), will need your future support more than ever.

The recent “tailgating” changes certainly did not prevent you from attending and enjoying the ASU game in great numbers! The end zone and the sections next to it on both sides of the field were full of Maroon clad students! It is a shame Central Michigan Life chose to ignore your great numbers inside the stadium!

The only Central Michigan Life picture, I saw, inside the stadium was a picture of only a few students in the front row of the end zone.

CM Life chose to “concentrate” on the lack of great numbers in the former “tailgating“ area rather than the great numbers of dedicated student football fans INSIDE the stadium! Through my many years, I have grown to expect CM Life to provide a more “even handed picture” when reporting on “issues” involving CMU students.

I am looking forward to seeing all of you at Saturday’s CMU vs. Akron University football game.
