Seeing BG with 37 points - did anyone else find it interesting that Jinx decided against going for the PAT after that last TD? I wonder if that was his way of saying - I don't want to pi$$ these guys off for next year by going for cheap points.

Was that his call? I thought Imheard someone say there’s no EP on TDs scored when time’s expired. I’m not a football guy so I’m not sure.

A PAT after time is expired is only done if it affects the outcome of the game.

Until you realize that since UT's last appearance in the football MAC title game (2004), BG has been 3X (2013-15) and won 2X, has made the whole UTvs BG rivalry less important to me. I would take a long losing streak to BG if MAC championships were secured during same period.

You know BG only won those games because they play in the vastly weaker side right? In 2013 we finished 7-5 and beat the MAC Champions who were our rivals, on their field... Thats awesome! Even at their best they arent better than us!

The rivalry has lost flare because BG isnt competitive anymore... Not because we havent been winning championships.

Since 2010 Toledo is 18-3 against the division Bowling Green plays in. We would be the East rep just about every year with that competition over there!

Taking a losing streak vs. your rival in exchange for winning your championship is called being Bowling Green.

For us, we have the opportunity of being the best AND beating our rival.

Embrace 8 in a row! We just tied up the all time record... Next year we can take control of the all time series AND win the MAC...

Does not matter to me (and I suspect many others) how BG won, fact is that they were able to win their division (yes a weak one) and twice beat the best the west had to offer. I agree that flare of the rivalry has dimmed in recent years, my point was that it means less to me and I care less because at the end of the day you are judged by championships and beating and often pounding your rival year after year means much less if they walk away with the conference championship at the end of the year. You may place more importance on the rivalry then winning the championship, may be true in your down years, but while in the middle of a 13 year championship drought means little to claim the higher ground year after year by simply beating BG.

I like Championships, but I truly love seeing the Rockets beating the Falcons like a drum year in and year out. Put us in the MAC East and we can do both on a regular basis.

Regardless of division, you play the schedule you are given, win the division and go to the championship game-it is that simple, forget the excuse that the east has been weaker, win the games, and win a championship

We do win the games thanks to BG lately. 8 of em in 8 yearsCOGS

National recognition does not come from championships AT ALL. It comes from bowl games and knocking off P5 teams.... Or even a famous player or 2 who made it in the NFL.

As long as I have to see orange and brown in my grocery store, then I will take that win over any title game. We know we have been better than the East reps so we should not be butt hurt we arent in the title game based on a technicality. Like you said, the schedule sets up for us to Fail.

2015 hurt a lot.... But other than that we havent represented our division because our loss was coming IN our division. We cant complain about championships when we have been unlucky with an incredible run of QB's at NIU followed by WMU and ROW THE BOAT, which will never happen again.

If the league picked the 2 best teams regardless of division.

2010
NIU 8-0
Toledo 7-1/ Miami 7-1

2011
NIU 7-1
Toledo 7-1

2012
NIU 8-0
Kent State 8-0

2013
NIU 8-0
BSU 7-1

2014
NIU 7-1
Toledo 7-1

2015
BGSU 7-1
Toledo 6-2

2016
WMU 8-0
Ohio 6-2

Where does BG have room to talk $h!t again???

My point, and only point, is that your season(s) are judged on championship, and I do not care for any excuses about the teams, schedule, QBs, UT has played since 2004. My bottom line is regardless of whether we beat BG including a streak of wins, the aim of the game-and certainly UT history, tradition, and annual expectations for many years including since 2004, means UT football is about winning the MAC-everything else including beating BG or going to a bowl, should be secondary to that. More so given that we have a 13 yr championship drought.

No one in BG is thinking less of their championship banners and trophies because they lost to UT that year. Now should they. Wins against the rival only go so far. STREAKS of course mean something but the point is, our coaching has failed when the going got tough against division teams, all for as good as the coaching has been. Theirs hasn't. They showed up when they needed to.

Because they had an easy route every time! You can say its an excuse but its a fact! They had to do less to achieve their goals... I firmly believe our staff would have more than 3 appearances had we flipped divisions.

Their Novembers consist of Buffalo and Miami and Akron. Ours consist of whoever is expected to win the conference because ESPN wants Toledo on their network.
