  • I think Saylor should be fired for this ridiculous schedule we have this season. No MAC school could handle this schedule. Sorry, Gene, but it’s precisely what MAC teams do. This season Kent visits Arizona State, Wisconsin, and Auburn. NIU visits …
  • Leach would have been an awesome grab as a coach when he was out of a coaching job for a while and doing radio shows on Sirius XM Radio. He and Rick Neuheisel both are very bright coaching minds, funny, and both also have law degrees. Maybe we can …
  • #1 and most important question for hiring new coach:  "WILL YOU BEAT UC?" end of interview. nothing else matters. Add OU win as #2
  • Good sports do make a difference in applications and future student pools. The many years of missing bowls and NCAA tourneys probably hurts. https://www.statepress.com/article/2017/03/spopinion-athletic-success-raises-applicant-interest-flutie-effe…
  • Did Chuck Martin read “The Art of War” by Sun Tzu? Probably not.......no white flag surrender chapter....... “If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for e…
  • Is anyone really happy to settle for a MAC title? I for one am tired of just settling. I believe we should be the premier team in the MAC and all opponents fear including the power 5. We will never get there with a coach who doesn't have confiden…
  • PAC 12 has taken a beating. MWC has owned them for the most part this year. Hawaii also beat Oregon State (not very good team) and they play Washington tonight. Awesome USAFA win! Nice job EMU today and best of luck to NIU at Nebraska tonight.
  • Start the 1st string, but substitute liberally. Injuries occur more often when tired and worn down. Don't let the starters get too worn out! What the NCAA needs to allow is traveling with entire team - super big disadvantage on the road.
  • We looked competitive in 1st half and there is some hope, but other coaches in the MAC/MWC/AAC/CUSA/SunBelt can win OOC. Chuck and his staff cannot. This a coaching problem and the culture at Miami needs a drastic fix. 0-6 against the biggest game …
  • While we are getting blown out in our "rivalry" game, EMU is beating Illinois, at Illinois 31-23. We should have won this game, bad coaching let another one get away. Our players are competitive with UC. We looked competitive in 1st half and th…
  • Today Friday 13th (Unlucky) 13 straight losing seasons (Unlucky) Is this a sign? 4 seasons of 1 score games that have haunted us. (Unlucky) Last win: 2005: Miami at Yager 44–16 win It is time for a change in this trend. As Dominque Robinson was …
  • Miami used to be a job that coaches used to catapult themselves into nationally known coaches. When was the last time we could say that? Randy Walker. Hoeppner was decent but nothing special I wonder if there were other factors at play that kept Hoe…
  • LOST AND FOUND (OR STOLEN): BELL CURRENT LOCATION: Nippert Stadium, Cincinnati OH APB: Please come pick up the BELL as soon as possible, preferably by Saturday September 14th, 2019. Wanted and Potential Suspects of the Stolen BELL are seen in th…
  • "The Redhawks do get a pretty guaranteed win in Week 2 against Tennessee Tech, but nothing else will be close." Yeah ...., I watched UC vs UCLA (a really weak team) , and was not impressed at all with UC's  performance. If we play like we did agains…
  • Tennessee Tech is the biggest game of Chuck's tenure in Oxford. (Cut and paste) Chuck has lost way too many FCS games. I was at USAFA game yesterday visiting daughter for parents weekend and the AFA program noted that they have NEVER lost to an F…
  • I actually thought UC looked terrible. UCLA just looked way worse. So many penalties. The one interception Ridder threw in the red zone was terrible. UC got so lucky with Warren’s fumble called back in the last 3 minutes. no argument.  However,…
  • Last time we player there mistakes in the first quarter gave Iowa a bunch of easy points.  A key to staying in the game is no turnovers and few penalties, make every offensive possession end in a kick, and then make them have a long drive in order t…
  • I just watched the highlights of Hawaii knocking off Arizona. I’m ready to see Miami do this against Iowa in the Battle of the Birds. It is almost time for Swoop and the Redhawks to scalp Herky and the Hawkeyes. Bring on the college football !!!!!!
  • Re: Freshman QBs - it may be a frequent occurrence this year...... https://bleacherreport.com/articles/2811961-true-freshmen-qbs-who-could-start-week-1-in-2019#slide7
  • Martin needs to get a glass half full attitude. If he says things that sound like he doesn’t think there are chances to win, then it just trickles down. He needs to learn how to be a better leader. This many years in and he still, most of the time, …
  • That’s OK. The MAC will be ready to take down teams without others expecting us. It is better to be ranked at the end of the season. Early season rankings are crap.
  • The second 2020 winnable game is??? These are all winnable hopefully with a QB that is experienced. Great 2020 schedule! This is far from Iowa/OSU with new QB. UC is always winnable! We need to fix the glass 1/2 EMPTY attitude! We need to be …
  • Nice pick up for the MAC. It would be nice to have 2 MWC bowls (Idaho and AZ).
  • CBS Sports Network is a really good network. They televise lots of games including MWC/AAC and U.S. Service Academy games. It also is on many cable networks sports packages. I think this is a nice add and agree.
  • That would be a nice ending to the season. It could be an Army/Navy nonconference-like matchup.
  • https://www.mlive.com/wolverines/2019/06/michigan-wr-oliver-martin-is-reportedly-in-the-ncaa-transfer-portal.html Maybe waiting for Oliver? Miami could take both. :) Disregard - just saw that Oliver is going to Iowa in USAToday. He has to sit out a…

  • UB was a great team - Texas Tech is really good!
