Charleston, IL • O’Brien Field (10,000)
Austin Peay State University GovernorsCharleston, IL – After the past 25 years with legendary Bob Spoo leading the program, a new face is in charge of the Eastern Illinois program that will face Austin Peay, 1:30pm, Saturday. Not only is Dino Babers the new coach but he also has brought along a different offensive style.

Historically, Eastern Illinois has had superb quarterbacks, like former Walter Payton Award recipient and current Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo. But Babers brought an offense with him from Baylor that is reminiscent of the one run by 2011 Heisman Trophy recipient Robert Griffin III.

Marshall Chapman’s CD, Big Lonesome, Takes You to the Blues and Back

 

Big LonesomeMarshall Chapman and Tim Krekel were writing, singing and music-making buddies for many years, so when Tim was diagnosed with cancer and consequently died only three months later, it was a huge hurting in the heart of Marshall Chapman. Although she had begun to devote her time to writing books and had vowed never to make another CD, the songs began to blossom without warning and Big Lonesome, her latest CD, was born.

Nine of the songs on Big Lonesome were written by Marshall, two of them with Tim. Cindy Walker wrote “Going Away Party,” the third song in the line-up and, of course, Hank Williams wrote “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry,” the ultimate sad song on this album.
