EMU Athletics posted a run-down of department-wide 2009-10 performance. Despite the notoriously weak football team, the Eagles still did reasonably well on the whole. The men’s swimming, indoor track, and outdoor track teams all won MAC championships this year, while men’s golf and women’s soccer were runners-up. EMU athletes also took 30 individual MAC titles in track and swimming. 60 Eagles were named to All-MAC teams, including 35 first-teamers. As previously noted, the Winter 2010 GPA was 3.066, a school record. All of that got Eastern Michigan a respectable third place in the Reese Trophy standings.
On the flip side, sports blog Statistically speaking has posted an analysis of the last five years of MAC football, and as you would expect, it doesn’t paint a pretty picture of EMU.
