Spoo's back

Bob Spoo is back in charge of the Eeastern Illinois football program, according to the (Charleston, Ill.) Journal Gazette/Times-Courier. Still no word on the surgery and recovery that kept him sidelined for the entire 2006 season, but hey, that's his business and not ours, I guess.

Spoo made his return official Friday, in sort of an awkward way, announcing that former Panthers quarterback Mike Donato will not return. Donato, the starter for the Panthers' 2005 OVC championship season, was dismissed. No other details were provided.

Coach Spoo was supposed to make some comments today about the state of the EIU program. I am curious to hear what he has to say.

As far as Donato leaving, EIU is now deep enough at QB that it helps by opening up a scholarship spot. Stinson has a lot of room for improvement before next season but Donato's lack of arm strength was simply too obvious. I am more optimistic about the young quarterbacks (Reeder, Kniss, and the incoming freshman, Hockaday). Maybe, one will be the next Romo.
