After the loss to Central Washington, EWU coach Paul Wulff waited a day then unloaded publicly on his team.
The criticism was calculated. It wasn't personal but it was scathing. Was it the right thing to do?
Most people will hedge their bets. They'll say yes, if the Eagles turn around and kick Montana State's rear end this weekend. But if EWU is on the wrong end of a kicking on Saturday? Then it was a mistake. That's the bottom line. If it works, Wulff is a genius, a motivator who knew just the right buttons to push. If it fails, then Wulff went over the line, he should have kept the criticism in-house.
Personally, I'm going to say, no matter what happens Saturday, Wulff did the right thing. Why? Because he thought it was the right thing to do, and it is his team. It's his decision, and he is going to do whatever he can to help his team win.
