Head coach Eddie Erdelatz had been receiving plaudits from around the league and in the press for the team’s recent success, but he may have been paying a high price. The team announced today that he was suffering from a stomach ulcer. He had suspected something was wrong and a recent x-ray confirmed the diagnosis. He was prescribed medication to address the problem and would be with the team when they flew to Buffalo later in the week.
