Cards putting it to Chips in first half so far. 20-3 BSU. They won’t be a pushover for us that is for sure.

    And just like that, 27-11. (Why in the world did Central go for 2?)

    Ball has 325 yards of total offense at the half.

    Huge comeback win for Central Michigan. BSU essentially eliminated now as they're 1 back in the loss column of WMU and CMU and own neither tie-breaker. Not sure if there is some weird 4 or 5 team tie-breaker they could win?

    A couple of tough calls (one overturning an INT) went against Ball State in 4th quarter. For the most part BSU’s offense was great and their defense pretty terrible. Hopefully we can put up some points on their D as their O is likely to put up a few scores on us.

    Testicle Tech has a 3 game losing streak going into an away game with Kent next week. They are a better team than their record indicates. They had 2 backs with over 100 yards rushing and 3 WR with over 80 yards.

    Miami has 9 to their 6 days to prepare when TT and Miami meet in Muncie on the 29th.

    Stopping the run game is not a Miami strength but, then again, we seem to have a bend but do not break defense and are better inside the 35 yard line.

    Yep but if BSU wins they will come into our game needing win for chance at bowl slot. We could be looking forward to Detroit by then...BSU cannot be overlooked due to their running attack and good offense. Other than BG blowout we have not been a high scoring team. ....so we can’t get into a shoot out...D will need to make big plays to keep Ball U out of the end zone.

    Best case scenario for us obviously is that Kent beats BSU and then they have little motivation in the finale against us (except for Redbird Trophy which I know Chuck covets!).

    Do not underestimate the motivation of a trophy

    A couple of people have mentioned resting players and not worrying about winning that Ball State game.  Most of us have jumped on debunking that idea,and Coach Martin mentioned that he thought his players would revolt if they did that.  Here is something else that I have not seen mentioned here.  We really want to get a winning record, haven't had one since the championship 2010 season.  Well we need 2 more wins to get to a winning season.  We are going to play 14 games this year, beating Akron will only get us to 7 wins.  We still need to win at least one more, out of Ball State, the MAC championship game, and our bowl game.

    We also haven't won 10 games since that 2010 season. Let's do that.
