EMU QB Will Practice Tuesday
Just got off the MAC teleconference with Eastern Michigan Coach Jeff Genyk. I’ll tell you, there was more media interest in the Sun Belt teleconference a few weeks ago than there was in the MAC teleconference. Three questions were asked today, and I asked two of them.
Genyk said quarterback Andy Schmitt, who didn’t see much action in Saturday’s loss to Toledo because of an injury to his non-throwing shoulder, will practice Tuesday, but Genyk said he is “day-to-day.”
After watching tape of the Maryland-Cal game, Genyk was very impressed with Maryland’s offensive line play. “The o-line really came off the ball and provided pass protection and created holes," Genyk said. "And Scott was able to get going and run downhill. They have a talented and athletic offensive line.”
Genyk praised the experience of Maryland’s defense and took particular note of lineman Mack Frost. Not sure if Genyk knows that Frost may not play because of his knee injury, but I didn’t tell the coach.
I then asked if Genyk could evaluate the 41-17 loss to Toledo on Saturday, and he said: “Defensively we had a great first half, coming out with seven three and outs. Suddenly in the third quarter we had a tough time tackling. We have to be more fundamentally sound tackling and going to the ball on deep passes. Offensively, we have just been short on making some plays. The offensive line has been doing good, and our quarterback has to settle in and make some plays down the field.”
