Gonna be homeless. Likely a 100+ point shootout.

Everyone picked Toledo as the MAC frontrunner, which they are. No team in the MAC has anything like what their defense will face in the Tulsa offense.

Should provide a nice blueprint as to how to beat Toledo.

Said it before the season began, our biggest hurdle to overcome this year is the schedule.

MAC will not be back at all until it starts doing better in bowl games. Was 0-6 last year.

Yeah and consistently beat P5 teams. I am not satisfied with wins only over bad P5 teams.

These are the P5 games we should have been playing for years. No upside going against OSU, MSU, Penn State, Florida, LSU, U-M. P5 paydays AND W's or close games is how you build winning prorams.

Everyone needs to calm down on predicting Anything against Kentucky. We are only concentrating on Ohio. If we lost at Rutgers, all of us would be talking Ohio. So please participate in what Creighton is preaching " Let's go 1-0 each week!"

Everyone please focus on Ohio. Now I feel better lol.

I can never root for Central. I have a long memory of them voting to kick us out of the MAC in 1981. At least Western abstained in that vote. We used whatever influence we had to help get Central into the MAC, and just seven years later they vote to kick us out. Never,never, never.

Ken,

I think your version of events has some holes in it. Central and Eastern joined the MAC together in 1971. What influence did EMU, as a non-member, use to help Central join the MAC?

In 1984, EMU and WMU voted against Eastern's expulsion from the MAC. Central abstained.

RE: MAC is back!
Dear Chippitt,
Sorry, it is your story that has holes in it. First, i am referring to what happened in 1981 not 1984. You seem to have not focused on that important date, and if one goes back to the early seventies one will find that even though both schools were admitted to the MAC in the same year, Eastern was admitted first. Therefore, the point that we then used whatever influence we had, to admit Central into the league.
If you want proof of what happened in 1981, research the Detroit News or Detroit Free Press late summer of that year. The reporter for the News was Larry Middlemas, and I believe the reporter for the Free Press was Joe Falls.
I know it is hard for Central people to believe their school could act the way it did, but it did.

Chippitt,

Don't even attempt to reason with Kenny-Boy, aka Mr. Sh!tstain. His version of events is totally skewered by his HATE for everything CMU. The evidence you cite is factual. His is "fake news" by a third-rate reporter who tried to stir things up years ago. My sister went to EMU, do I hate her? Absolutely not. Do I hate the Huronators? Absolutely not. It's a great second-rate rivalry. See everyone at Kelly/Shorts Stadium!

RE: MAC is back!
Dear Chip Enema,
As usual, you only refer to one of the votes taken in 1984. The first vote was to kick Eastern football out of the MAC, and it was 8-2 with Central voting with the eight. As usual you continue to disrespect a good reporter who worked for the Detroit News at the time.
I was wrong in stating 1981, it was 1984 that the votes took place.
You and Chippitt should go back to page 15 on your website to review the research of the article in the Detroit News at the time this came about.
