  • Yes - “THE“ OSU is just that good this year.Sadly, we had to play them this year. Some day we will beat “THE OSU” (Or someone from the MAC or UC will beat them) - just like global warming things will change.
  • Team needs to show it has a pulse.  Since being up 10-0 at UC they have played awful, Early UC game and maybe add most of first quarter against OSU they looked good then......... Hopefully MU can get the complete game installed against Buffalo. Mo…
  • We have not one OOC FBS game in the lame Duck Martin era, just in case anyone forgot. Absolutely pathetic record!
  • Buffalo, NIU, OU, WMU are very tough games - those are ~50/50 or even tougher on the road. Ball State and Kent could be OK - they played some decent teams relatively well. (Not gimme games) BG and Akron have to be wins for us - they are super bad. …
  • Chuck excuses, Treadwell left the cupboard bare. The talent isn't here until MY RECRUITS ARRIVE! We are young The ref didn't hear me call timeout, he should have known to give me time out, I'm CHUCK MARTIN We are banged up The other team had dibs on…
  • 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.
