    Plus 6'2 210 pound linebacker from Simon Kenton Brian Carter committed also I think 5'10 190 pound WR from Simon Kenton Luke Vance also is going to EKU. Alot of Kentucky kids on that roster.

    0-2 start.
    but pay off budget plus some with the 2 losses.

    Any clue on how much they are paid to go to WKU and UK.

    Another rough year in Richmond for Coach Elder.

    The better story line may be the reunion with Coach Hood when the Colonels travel to UK.

    Will the upgraded stadium be ready at EKU? I know they broke ground during the 2016 season

    I really like what EKU is doing in state, both with scholly and PWO offers. I would love to see them improve by getting more in state kids, get back to doing damage in the FCS playoffs.

    On a side note does anyone know what EKU's average home attendance is? I can help but think it would improve with more KY kids on the roster.

    It is supposed to be complete by September.

    Also their new weight room and nutrition center should be done by the end of February and their new locker rooms prior to the kids reporting this summer.

    Their weight room will have state of the art Hammer Strength equipment. They are a showcase weight room for Hammer Strength. Once it is finished the Pittsburg Steelers are coming in to look at it. Their nutrition bar is going to be one of the tops in the country.

    Awesome sounds like EKU is really trying to change their program around. Great school.

    I would like to see EKU vs. UC Bearcats series... If I remember Elder was a coach at UC under Butch Jones...
