Episode 83: Horse stuff

January 16, 2019

First 'sode of the new year and we didn't forget to mention Akron this time! There wasn't much to talk about with Akron, but they still continue to exist as an idea. One of Akron's ideas is hiring a 27-year old as its defensive coordinator. Depending who you ask on the show, we're 27. 

*gulp*

There's some discussion about how we viewed the 2018 season and, even with the turnover around the league, it might get even better for 2019. There's some other football content to be had, but at the time of this writing, I don't remember what happened. Guess there's only one way to find out.

Episode 82: New Year’s Resolutions

December 31, 2018

To end the 2018 calendar, Alex & Fitz talk about the bowl game finales (mostly mush), some big transfer news, players leaving early for the NFL Draft, and New Year's Resolutions for all of the MAC teams.

Episode 81: Sour cream drank

December 18, 2018

Alex goes missing this week because his cat, a regular guest on the show, also went missing. Jace is found which is good news.

The bad news is we still recorded a podcast without them, which is a total win for the brand. As a MAC football-sided podcast, we'll do anything for brand wins. 

A quick look-back at the Camellia Bowl, re-previewing some upcoming (and ongoing, in NIU's case) bowl game, some Taco Bell go-tos, Christmas month plans, and that's it.

That's it.

Nothing else to talk abou — OH THAT'S RIGHT AKRON DID SOMETHING IMPORTANT. CRAP ALMOST FORGOT AGAIN.

Episode 80: A video game confession

December 12, 2018

With bowl games finally coming to our lives, Alex has a confession to make. Yes, it's about Red Dead. 

With bowl games finally coming to our lives, we also talk about the bowl games. Sort of. It's hard to get excited about the MAC and bowl games when they're in the same sentence. Our best guess of a bowl winner is Toledo. (Or Ohio?) 

Since we don't really spell it out for you in the program, here's what the schedule looks like:

Sat. 12/15- EMU vs. Georgia Southern in the Camellia Bowl, 5:30 p.m., ESPN

Tues. 12/18- NIU vs. UAB in the Boca Raton Bowl, 7 p.m., ESPN

Wed. 12/19- Ohio vs. SDSU in the Frisco Bowl, 8 p.m., ESPN

Fri. 12/21- Toledo vs. FIU in the Bahamas Bowl, 12:30 p.m., ESPN

Fri. 12/21- WMU vs. BYU in the Potato Bowl, 4 p.m., ESPN

Sat. 12/22- Buffalo vs. Troy in the Dollar General Bowl, 7 p.m., ESPN

Episode 79: New faces and bowl places

December 4, 2018

It's been one hell of an end to the regular season and we haven't talked since the MAC title game. As it turns out, a lot can happen in three days.

Of note, BG and CMU made pretty big hires in Scot Loeffler & Jim McElwain (!!!!!!!!!!!!!), respectively, Akron fires Terry Bowden and six MAC teams were picked to go bowling. Miami finished with a 6-6 record, but no bowl game for the RedHawks.

Episode 78: Never, ever, ever count out NIU

December 1, 2018

Final score — Northern Illinois 30, Buffalo 29

The gang went to Ford Field to take in the MAC title game and it was an instant classic. There was some back-and-forth with strong receiver play out of Anthony Johnson for Buffalo and Spencer Tears for NIU, but look at that Marcus Childers performance. 

NIU committed too many penalties to let Buffalo get into the end zone easily in the first half (22-10 lead at the break), but defense forced five straight punts out of UB in the second half.

Episode 77: MAC title game preview

November 28, 2018

But seriously, can this please be a color rush game?

Blue versus red. White pants, white helmets vs. black helmet, black pants.

I mean, come on. 

CALL YOUR GODDDAMN SENATORS. YOUR HAPPINESS MATTERS. 

In any case, this is a damn good game and it looks like most people think Buffalo can, should and will win this game. On the other hand, it's NIU.

Episode 76: MAC Color Rush Party

November 27, 2018

There's a lot to cover, but it's in this weird window where we're all still suffering from some sort of Thanksgiving hangover & people are starting to lose their jobs. 

The biggest of the news, obviously, is John Bonamego getting the boot after this year's 1-11 record, which was really bad. Sounds like there's more to the situation than just football reasons. But Mike Neu isn't leaving Ball State, so that's good for them. What's not good for Ball State is Riley Neal & James Gilbert both transferring. That's bad, probably.

A MAC title game preview episode will come later, but for now, let's form a political party.

Episode 75: How much worse has it gotten?

November 20, 2018

Note: It's Thanksgiving week, so we're going to be busy. That means instead of doing bi-weekly episodes, we're just going to cram in all we can into one episode a week. Nothing permanent.

It's Thanksgiving week and we're all hoping that the side dish of Buffalo vs. Bowling Green ends up being chaotic in the best/worst way possible. Ohio and Miami are still in it, but those two have to scoreboard-watch Carl Pelini shoot for his third straight win with the Falcons. 

All the games, though, look like straight chalk. WMU-NIU should be close, but other than that, things look like they should be very one-sided. 

Don't drink and drive.

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.)
