Black Bears On A Strawberry Field
by Harry Cummins
OK, I will admit I don't follow FCS football that closely and I had completely lost track of the Eastern Washington Eagles since their wide-receiver Cooper Kupp took his glue-fingers to the National Football League.
However, the lure of that bright red rug in Cheney, known as 'The Inferno', and an opposing team that has traveled 3,000 miles to play on it Saturday for the right to advance to the NCAA FCS Championship game...well...see you on ESPN2.
EWU is 11-2 on the season, averaging a perfectly balanced 271 yards thru the air and 266 yards on the ground. The Maine University Black Bears (10-3) surrender just 69 YPG rushing, tops in the FCS.
The snow has stopped and the game day forecast is for clearing. 'Skies of Blue and a Red Field too. I'm gonna watch.
