Eags 2011 football schedule announced

Eastern Washington University announced its 2011 football schedule on Friday and it's … well, it's awful.

The reward for winning a national championship?  Seven road games and only four chances — all against Big Sky foes — to play on the red turf at Roos Field. But, hey, the students will be on campus for all four!

 You can read more what Eagles coach Beau Baldwin thinks about the road-heavy schedule here, and you can check out what EWU's sports information department posted about the schedule here.

If you can see the logic in this, please let us in on the secret.
