With the exception of Toledo and Eastern Michigan (each with two overall losses in FB this fall) every other MAC school has three or four losses…part of the reason why the MAC has such difficulty getting into either the AP or Coaches’ weekly polls.
Actually, as I mentioned on the future of the MAC thread, three teams already for 4 losses and three have 5. The MAC might not have 6 bowl eligible teams this year because of the lackluster OOC results…
Aside from the guys we know are out for the season, here are some guys I’ve got on my Injury Watch List
for BG Week. Ty left the game with an apparent arm/shoulder injury Saturday. I think I recall Dowell getting banged up late on Saturday, too. Bester is listed on the injury site I follow as return uncertain. Anybody have any insight what our MASH unit looks like?
BG should be a win, but it is the MAC and strange stuff happens all the time. Last year BG was bad, but won at Minnesota. This year BG is bad, but beat Marshall right after they won at Notre Dame. McDonald, their QB, can get hot and put up a lot of points. Or not. Just be ready for a challenge and execute for 60 minutes. Nothing is given, we have to take it.
As CM said, was thinking for us it’s a pretty good comparison, he’s similar to Gus Ragland…maybe better runner, not as “good” passer…Gus got better at both and maybe Aveon’s passing will continue to grow and his runs even more timely.
I agree, though I can see why Vegas has it that way. This same BG team that’s crapped the bed against plenty of MAC and FCS teams lately has also beaten Minnesota and Marshall the past two seasons. Weird team under their current regime.
It’s past time for Miami to adopt a killer instinct and start burying teams that we are better than. Somehow, we’re still playing a lot of games right at the level of our inferior opponents. We didn’t even bury our far outmanned FCS opponent. That needs to stop.
Scot sounds like a guy who’s at the end of his rope. It’s year 4 for him and no real significant improvement. A few more losses and he might be updating his resume. I’m sure he’ll turn over every stone to have his team ready to go though.
He’s actually a pretty good coach. Problem is, the MAC has a ton of them even though no one thinks the conference is any good. I think that’s why so many head coaches have gotten poached from it over the years. Minnesota coach/part time boat rower doing well. So is Kansas coach. And NC State. And Alabama. Hmmm…maybe the MAC doesn’t suck. That’s four former MAC coaches all ranked in the top 25.
