Eastern Michigan players try to knock down a wall

Teams are always trying to come up with new and exciting ways to introduce their teams, but sometimes they try just a little too hard.

Case in point: Eastern Michigan, which thought having its players smash through a concrete brick wall (presumably to match the Eagles' concrete gray field) would be a great way to introduce this year’s team.

Unfortunately, this stunt took three players with sledgehammers nearly 20 seconds to pull off while all 8,748 fans in attendance patiently waited for the first game under coach Chris Creighton to begin.

For the sake of the players, who edged out a 31-28 win against Morgan State, we hope Eastern Michigan just sticks with the fog machine and some techno music next time.
