On Heather Lyke leaving EMU : Rats, Drats and Double Drats!


The dictionary defines the word "Drats" as an exclamation of annoyance, and dang it, that's exactly how I feel about Eastern Michigan Athletic Director Heather Lykes departure from my alma mater EMU. Drats and double drats!

There it was Monday, March 21, 2017... the press release from EMU flashing across my PWP computer screen informing that Eastern Michigan Director of Athletics Heather Lyke announced that she will leave the University and has accepted the position of AD at the University of Pittsburgh. Her last day at EMU will March 27. Ugh!

Check this out. Under the leadership of Heather Lyke, in the autumn of 2016, and this is right out of the EMU press release mind you, student athletes at EMU earned the highest GPA's in EMU athletic dept history. The fall term athletic GPA was 3.238, and the cumulative GPA was 3.266. Whether you give a damn about GPA's or not, that's not too shabby. 46 student athletes received a 4.0 GPA. Holy schmolly! By the way, EMU football went to it's first bowl game in 29 years! Plus, my 8 year old daughter met Heather at a football event that she attended with me and she said she's "Super cool!"

So I'll just say it. As a proud EMU alum I'm downright downcast (Hence the above mentioned "Drat") that Lyke is leaving EMU. She was excellent for the University.

Heck, didn't she just get here? And what does Pitt have that we don't have here anyway? Pittsburgh? Big deal. We have the Motor City! Doesn't that sound cooler? What - They have the Alleghenies? Phooey! I'll take Lake Michigan! Geez, Pennsylvania has too many hills, anyway. Well, actually the Alleghenies are pretty nice. Now, lets talk doughnuts! No way does the Pitt area have a doughnut shop as good as Dom's bakery! They really don't. I just looked. PWP has special doughnut connections across this great country of ours and none of the 15 Pittsburgh doughnut shops compare to our Dom's here in Ypsi. It's really true! Yep, I checked em all out yesterday! I've gained 10 pounds!

This whole departure thing reminds me of another annoying departure. Yes, I'm talking about EMU basketball magic man Ben Braun. It's still hard to talk about. In the 90's Braun turned EMU basketball into a super power! Well, practically. Between 1986 and 1996 Ben Braun guided EMU basketball to three NCAA berths and a Sweet Sixteen appearance! And then, and then.... he left. Ugh! Do I sound like I have a chip on my shoulder? Of course I have a chip on my shoulder.. A lot of us guys from Flint do!... a big ole Buick Skylark chip. Oh,that's for another story.

Anyway, I wish Heather Lyke the best of luck, but I also wish coaches and AD's didn't see Mid American Conference schools as a mere stepping stone to greener pastures and bigger bucks. I'll say this. They're going to miss the doughnuts!

  6. I can't believe this. A great testimony l must share. A few months back l was diagnosed with herpes virus. I really thought my life was over. I had used different kinds of medication which didn't help. Then l browsed the internet and found a great doctor by the name Dr Odion who listened to my problems and sent me herbal medication via courier. I took the medication as instructed and within 2 weeks, the virus was gone.
