Episode 74: My Big Fat East Wednesday Gameday

November 13, 2018

Of course, the title of this truly matters if, and only if, Buffalo loses to Bowling Green *next week*, but that'd be a fun way to reverse-engineer the East standings.

Until then, Buffalo's in the driver's seat and has Ohio to look forward to on Wednesday. #POINTSCITY

And, good news for Chuck Martin, there's a trophy this time around against NIU! Hooray newly-introduced rivalry games!

(I'd type out the other games for this week, too, but you don't need to watch any other games this week if you don't want to.)

Episode 73: Throwing it backwards

November 12, 2018

Chuck Martin finally wins a big rivalry game and... dude, really? You celebrate by bashing on the [weeknight] fans, the conference and the "cheap" schools? The maturity is obvious. 

But yeah, Miami finally beat Ohio without an offensive TD in the second half, NIU curb-stomped Toledo, but that's not even close to what came of the EMU-Akron game. 

Buffalo won big, no surprise there.

WAIT, DID BUTT GAME OF THE WEEK REALLY LIVE UP TO THE HYPE??

Episode 72: Solid as a rock

November 6, 2018

Another week full of midweek games. This time, the sauce is on a Wednesday.

NIU vs. Toledo.

Battle for the Bricks.

Need we say more?

OF COURSE WE NEED TO SAY MORE, IT'S A FRIGGEN PODCAST AND WE HAVEN'T EVEN GOTTEN TO THE BEST GAME OF THE WEEK YET, WHICH IS VERY CLEARLY CMU VS. BOWLING GREEN. GOD BLESS THE MAC.

Episode 71: Everybody has Arthur’s voice

November 5, 2018

That was quite the week of MACtion. Tuesday football finally came around with a high-scoring affair between Buffalo & Miami. The Bulls control its own destiny with the 51-42 win, a much-needed result to try and win the East. 

Those efforts were followed up with Ohio absolutely demolishing WMU on the road, which has serious ripple effects for both divisions. This was a rather telling crossover game for the MAC, and the NIU-Akron game was also telling in its unique way. 

Wait, how many turnovers did Toledo-Ball State have?

Episode 70: Halloween Scrooge

October 30, 2018

After a lighter week of MAC football content, we finally have some branding coming our way with Tuesday-night football! The ultimate power move in the name of branding was having Kent State vs. Bowling Green be primetime, weeknight television. Two games then, one Wednesday, two Thursday, then the EMU vs. CMU matchup in Ypsilanti on Saturday.

Episode 69: Nice

October 29, 2018

Congrats to everybody who survived Butt Week. Condolences to the three directional Michigan schools for not making it, though.

The way things have been going this year, NIU winning with a 7-6 score was almost too perfect to predict.

Episode 68: Welcome to Butt Week

October 24, 2018

This week's bound to be super butt, and that's mainly the cause of two factors:

1. There are two non-conference games happening in late October (Army at EMU, NIU at BYU). 

2. Most of the MAC East is on bye to prepare for next week's Tuesday slate (BGSU, Kent State, Buffalo and Miami). 

But hey, at least we have CMU vs. Akron to look forward to on Saturday!

Thursday we have a pair of games, but only one is worth watching, which is Toledo at WMU. Are the Rockets toast? At QB, there doesn't seem to be an answer. This isn't the time of year where we should be asking that of Toledo, but here we are.

Episode 67: Worm cuddles

October 22, 2018

Welp, that was probably the easiest of weeks to predict. Western blew out Central. Even moreso for BG over Ohio. Buffalo gassed Toledo. Eastern dominated at Ball State. Akron (barely) won its game over Kent State, in a game that obviously had to end in overtime because — *clears throat* — NOBODY SCORED IN THE FOURTH FREAKING QUARTER?! 

Still wasn't as wild as that Miami-Army finish in double overtime. Justin, how many plays did Miami run in the fourth quarter?

Episode 66: Can Toledo rebound at home against the favorites?

October 19, 2018

Another week, another big crossover game on the weekend slate. This time, Toledo will play host to Buffalo, which has a fairly different look now than it did eight weeks ago. Toledo's not playing up to its potential and Buffalo's exceeding everybody's expectations. 

What was once a harmless-looking Ohio vs. BGSU game seemed cute on the schedule, but now it sort of looks like a trap game. Maybe we're just lying to ourselves here. Any potential for chaos in the Battle Cannon and Wagon Wheel rivalries?

Episode 65: I need an Earth 2

October 15, 2018

Big news of the weekend: Mike Jinks has been fired from Bowling Green. No surprise there, that's a move seemed inevitable, but that wasn't until after Keishawn Watson picked up his own fumble inside the red zone and ran in for a touchdown.

Buffalo's in the driver seat, but the Bulls are human. And Miami's got a good defense. Maybe it's time to re-think the optics of the MAC East? Ohio's loss at NIU certainly puts some things into perspective. 

Over in the West, NIU's the unsexiest undefeated team in MAC play, but that's where we're at. Also, Toledo slipped on a banana peel and lost to EMU for the first time since 2006.
