Explained Heather Lyke, the school’s athletic director: “I received a tape of a situation in which Coach English had addressed the team and used wholly inappropriate language. We hold our coaches and staff to high standards of professionalism and conduct and there is no place, particularly in a student environment, where this language is appropriate."

In the first meeting, he spoke often about paying more attention to details, something English - and most coaches - consider differences between winning and losing. The broadness of Eastern Michigan’s failures, though, makes it more difficult even if English doesn’t believe in the actualities of losing cultures. It’s also why there should be little surprise Eastern Michigan was picked to finish sixth in the Mid-American Conference Western Division with 34 points, 120 points behind the preseason pick to win the West, Central Michigan.
