I think we all need to be proud of our neighbors to the north in Cheney Washington, for winning the FCS National Championship by defeating Delaware Friday night! The first 3 quarters were not pretty, the Eagles just couldn't seem to get any offense going, and the defense just couldn't seem to come up with a stop. but then, late in the third quarter, the Eagles came alive. with three straight touchdowns, EWU finally pulled ahead 20 to 19 with less than 3 minutes to go. Delaware began its final drive with a couple first downs but stalled at mid field as the defense stepped up one more time, sealing the deal. If your not satisfied with my "in depth recap" there, here is ESPN's.
Having attended Eastern for 2 years before transferring to WSU, this really meant a lot to me personally, but it really is a win for all of Washington. To bring home a national championship title to the area is a big deal, even if many of us consider the FCS to be vastly inferior, its still a big accomplishment. Congratulations Eastern!
As a side note, this is the program that Wulff spent 8 years engineering before jumping behind the wheel at his Alma mater. It would be hard to argue that he didn't have any impact on this program to get them to this point (having won several big sky championships during his tenure). Just making a point.
Once again, Congrats Eastern! and Go Eags!
