  • Myrtle Beach Bowl

    AZ and Boise are both great places to visit.

    You must not have been to Tucson.

    Tucson, AZ would be an even better place for a bowl! Super fun city to visit with great food, weather,, and scenes.
  • The College Athletics Dominoes are starting to fall

    That is silly talk about CMU dropping football to D3. It is a very large university. 
    I can’t see that happening to them. 

    If that happens, we will see many group of 5 teams across the country fall. 
  • Dayton football rivalry?

    We would (and any MAC school) would crush Dayton.
    Dayton was Div III football for years, but then the NCAA required schools to have football reclassified into “Div I” around 1992-1993 for those schools with DI BB and DIII FB.

    Essentially they required schools like Dayton, Georgetown, Davidson, etc. to move to I-AA (now FCS). Some of these leagues are powerhouse old school leagues (Big Sky, CAA, etc.) with awesome I-AA programs (although many better teams jumped to IA and Sun Belt/CUSA). 
    Others were created to allow schools to have football without spending large $$$ to keep their basketball programs at Div I. 

    Bottom line is that the elite FCS programs and conferences (CAA, Big Sky, etc.) are light years ahead of Dayton’s league. Dayton is still very good and I’m not slamming them. Their league was created for a reason. It is just not the same. Also, Ivy League football is much better than Dayton and their league overall. Sure, Dayton may knock off someone every so often from better IAA league, but overall there is a big difference. 
  • MAC East Preview by ESPN_BillC (SP+)

    This should be used as a motivational tool by the staff.
    Yes, we won the conference and had a winning season and went to a bowl, BUT was this a fluke? 
    The media still does not believe we are good. 
    So it is now time to show the media, they are very wrong. 
  • Next season

    I’m predicting a 4-0 preseason. 
    UC/Pitt/Ark-PB/Army - all go down with 3/4 games played at our HOME.
    Lock the gate, take no prisoners.

    EMU should have won against Pitt in bowl in Detroit. 
    We need this Pitt game. Chuck needs this win.
    Let’s go HAWKS 2020!
