Coaches leaving, athletes transferring, it does not sound good at EWU. A survey was completed on March 1 and my EWU friends are saying the president and the board of trustees won't publicly comment until May. Seems like something is up (and not in a good way).

One would think that, at the least, it’s not a full dismantling of the athletic department given they elevated an assistant to replace Shantay Legans. However, I’m noticing that the EWU board seems to be in a state where they’re semi-convinced most of the 7 players that entered the portal will end up on the Bluff.

Seems said board is leaning towards one of two conclusions:

1- they drop football

or

2- they drop a division

If you had forced me to bet, I figured there would be ways EWU could keep on keeping on, that nothing would really happen other than maybe revising or scrapping their stadium renovation proposal (stuck at probably less that $6 million after more than a year of fundraising, with $25 million required). This... blerg.
