Happy 100th, us!

Bowling Green finally broke the losing streak to Toledo, and it was exactly when we least expected it. That's the best part about college football, says Alex. 

We'll recap that and the rest of Week 7, take a peek at the XFL Draft, poke around with some stats and do a light preview of Week 8.

Episode 98: Toledo’s definitely the favorite now

Episode 98: Toledo’s definitely the favorite now

October 3, 2019

Miami's defense kicked it up a notch or five and Matt Myers eventually had to leave the game because of the physicality. As unforgiving as the defense played, the offense wasn't beautiful, so where does that put Miami in the space of this conference? 

Also, WMU's offense rolled, CMU's defense is playing pretty decently, Akron's not worth mentioning but we try it out anyway, and no pun intended but Justin had to run off in the middle of our Toledo discussion to be a good husband. 

Week 5 scores: Miami 34, Buffalo 20 / Toledo 28, BYU 21 / Vanderbilt 24, NIU 18 / WMU 31, CMU 15 / UMass 37, Akron 29

Week 6 slate: Kent State at Wisconsin / EMU at CMU / Ball State at NIU / Ohio at Buffalo / WMU at Toledo / BGSU at Notre Dame

Episode 96: Chuck Martin gives enlightenment a try

September 18, 2019

Eastern Michigan, of all teams, is the only team in the MAC with at least two wins in FBS play so far. It's still early, so we're still learning, but we've got reasons for optimism and pessimism around the conference regardless. Also, why does Chuck Martin feel compelled to say the things that he says sometimes?

Week 3 scores: Auburn 55, Kent State 16 / Marshall 33, Ohio 31 / EMU 34, Illinois 31 / Cincinnati 35, Miami 13 / FAU 41, Ball State 31 / CMU 45, Akron 24 / LA Tech 35, BGSU 7 / Liberty 35, Buffalo 17 / WMU 57, Georgia State 10 / Toledo 45, Murray State 0 / Nebraska 44, NIU 8

Week 4 slate: Miami @ Ohio State / WMU @ Syracuse / UL-Lafayette @ Ohio / Central Connecticut State @ EMU / Troy @ Akron / BGSU @ Kent State / Temple @ Buffalo / CMU @ Miami-FL / Ball State @ NC State / Toledo @ Colorado State

Episode 95: Well that sucked

September 12, 2019

We regret to inform you that last weekend sucked. Nobody really came close to their P5 opponents, and the only wins to speak of are over FCS schools. Kent State' win over Kennesaw was decent, but the fireworks were scheduled for noon and it stayed that way.

At least Week 3 should be fun with some rivalries and more MAC-B1G games.

Week 2 scores: Pitt 20, Ohio 10 / Kent State 26OT, Kennesaw State 23 / Wisconsin 61, CMU 0 / Kansas State 52, BGSU 0 / UAB 31, Akron 20 / Utah 35, NIU 17 / Ball STate 57, Fordham 29 / Miami 48, Tenn. Tech 17 / Penn State 45, Buffalo 13 / Kentucky 38, EMU 17 / MSU 51, WMU 17

Week 3 slate: Ohio @ Marshall / Kent State @ Auburn / EMU @ Illinois / Miami @ Cincinnati / FAU @ Ball State / Akron @ CMU / LA Tech @ BGSU / Buffalo @ Liberty / Georgia State @ WMU / Murray State @ Toledo / NIU @ Nebraska

If this podcast were a MAC football game, we'd be Ball State's 2014 loss to Indiana State. Sorry for the lateness, but here's some chit-chatter on the Week 1 MAC football games.

Episode 92: It’s been a long offseason

August 16, 2019

Welp, our brains are fried. It's summer, we saw the cold, we saw the hot, but now it's actually football season. Practices have been going on for a couple of weeks now, so let's hit on a lot of the (basic) questions we still had running through our minds before games commence.
