Lonely On The Bottom

When thinking about life at the bottom you soon realize that everyone is a coach and everyone has a solution. How does that song go by the Little River Band.

Have you heard about the lonesome loser,
Beaten by the queen of hearts every time,

This season EIU is looking up from the bottom of the OVC standings and for a team used to being on top and looking downward, life is a little strange. Band wagons always seem to be a little less crowded when things are not going your way.

For this season the queen of hearts has reared her ugly head in the form of turnovers. The Panthers have committed 27 of them - a number that leads all of FCS. While they probably will not catch the school record of 52 set in the 1981 season, they are letting those things get the best of them.

Then comes the next week. As coaches like to say - young people are resilient, they seem to be able to bounce back. As homecoming approaches on the EIU campus there is no better time to try and break out of a slump and get some of that good MOJO going their way. Win won for old E-I-U and make the alumni proud.

In addition to the football game it is Think Pink week on campus with proceeds going to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Make sure to stop by either the women's soccer games on Friday and Sunday, the swim meet on Sunday or volleyball match next Tuesday to pick up your Pink EIU gear and help find a cure.

We leave you with a little ditty from Little River Band.
