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.)

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.
