Best EWU Team Ever?



EWU defeated Northern Arizona yesterday, probably punching themselves a ticket to the FCS playoffs and capping a season that started off with no hope and now has plenty of possibilities. There's something about this team - they have IT - not sure what that is but they have that swagger about them.

Think about it, the Eag lose one of the most prolific scorers (Aaron Boyce) in the history of EWU and the team continues to roll even after refs screwed them out of a victory in Montana.

They have a hall-of-fame quarterback Matt Nichols who might go down as the best signal caller the Big Sky has seen. I thought I had seen the best QB in Eagle history with Erik Meyer, but I think Nichols probably holds that crown now but he'll have to cement his legacy with another post-season run.

They have an explosive running back in Taiwan Jones, who's a danger to score every time he touches the ball. A megatron tight end in Nathan Overbay.  Tony Davis, Nicholas Edwards, are just some of solid guys on offense.

I could go on and on, the depth of this team is amazing, the defense is jam-packed with playmakers like Matt Johnson and JC Sherrit. Head coach Beau Baldwin is doing well and has completely erased Paul Wulff in the mind of people at the school.

Best team ever at Eastern?
