god that would be awesome

The only issue is that while I think we'll get to six wins, I have a hard time seeing MSU get there. They already have four losses and they still have to play @UM, @Illinois, and @PSU. If they were to lose all of those they'd be done.

I agree though, an EMU/MSU matchup and Ford Field would be a ton of fun.

I would rather play a P5 schools slumming it than a G5 school that cares.

I’d rather play a P5 school from outside the Midwest. Like Oregon State.

Isn’t that when we play CMU? Or maybe 2 weeks ago in Kalamazoo…

RE: 2022 MAC Bowl Picture
I know we are technically still in the running for the MAC-west, but I don't like our chances against Toledo (although of course come Saturday I'll wake up fully convinced we'll win haha). We seem to be in a great spot to make a bowl, and hopefully only have eight MAC teams eligible:

Need one more wins
Toledo
Buffalo
Ohio
Eastern Michigan

Need two more wins
Ball State
Bowling Green

Need three more wins
Miami
Kent State
Western Michigan

Need four more wins
Northern Illinois
Central Michigan

Eliminated
Akron

Next week is a light slate of games since the mid-week games start after that.

Toledo@EMU:...obviously
Miami@Akron: We'll take Akron in this one since they are already eliminated and it would put Miami on the brink.

RE: 2022 MAC Bowl Picture
Well that was kind of nice to think bigger than a bowl game for a minute. Still need to get one more win and hope there are eight or less MAC teams that are bowl eligible so we don't have to sweat it out.

Bowl eligible
Toledo (6-3)

Need one more wins
Buffalo
Ohio
Eastern Michigan

Need two more wins
Ball State
Bowling Green
Miami

Need three more wins
Kent State
Western Michigan

Need four more wins
Northern Illinois
Central Michigan

Eliminated
Akron

The Saturday games are mostly over and we'll start the mid-week games this week. This isn't who I think will win, rather who I think we should hope wins to help our own bowl hopes.

Tuesday
BSU@KSU: I'll go with Ball State. That would put Kent State on the brink and they might be out of the picture by time we play them.

Buffalo@Ohio: This is a huge game for the MAC-east. Both teams are 5-3 and will most likely get to six wins. I'm gonna say we cheer for Buffalo just because it looks like Ohio has a harder schedule so maybe they just won't win again, but really this game doesn't matter much to us.

Wednesday
CMU@NIU: Hmm...the loser of this one is out. So do we want NIU out since we still play CMU and can eliminate them ourselves or take CMU out now so they have nothing to play for when we play them? Tough call, but I think we want CMU to win, my reason being, that knocks out NIU then CMU plays Buffalo next week and probably knocks them out. So hopefully CMU has nothing to play for that Friday after Thanksgiving.

WMU@BG: I'll go with Bowling Green. That would put Western on the brink of being eliminating.

RE: 2022 MAC Bowl Picture
Kind of a bonus bowl tidbit. Last year all five D1 programs in the state made bowl games, which was cool. This year another scenario is playing out which could also be pretty cool (at least from our prospective). Looking at the records and remaining schedule it is likely that only one two programs make a bowl this year...Michigan and Eastern.

Michigan is 8-0 and in.

Michigan State is 3-5 and still has to play @Iliinois and @Penn State (both of whom are nationally ranked). The way MSU has played this year even home games with Indiana and Rutgers are not automatic wins. Hard to see the Spartans not losing at least two more games.

Central Michigan is 2-6 and games with NIU, Buffalo, WMU, and EMU left. Can't see them winning all those games.

Western Michigan is 3-5 and games with BGSU, NIU, CMU, and Toledo. Could they go 3-1? Maybe, but again that is a tough ask for them.

Eastern is 5-4 and considering that game @Akron, they have a great chance to get to six wins.

If that ends up being how things play out that would be something to hang our hats on, and could help some with instate recruiting.

Something to keep an eye on.

My thoughts:

7 - 5 shot at the QL bowl. 8 - 4 damn good shot at the QL bowl.

Good luck the rest of the year. I had a blast tailgating and talking to some family members of players. I will be there sporting my green and white if you make it to the QL bowl. I hope you do the same if we get a chance. I doubt much of you care if its UB, Ohio or UT in Detroit for the MACC. But all support is good support for that game with SE Michiganders.

Dear Friends,
If, Marshall and Buffalo were to be the teams in the Quick Lane Bowl, the only people there will be fans from those two schools. In my opinion, that would be about three thousand from each school.

I would think even at 6-6 (which would be really disappointing, but that aside) we would be pretty appealing for the QL bowl IF MSU, WMU, and CMU all don't qualify for a bowl. I'm sure they'd love to get an instate school, and remember we were 6-6 the year we went there. Although, Toledo would probably interest them as well.

To add to this, ESPN had their two bowl projection guys both predict Iowa to the QL bowl this week with one having them face Toledo the other facing EMU.

FYI, the guy that didn't have us in the QL had us playing North Texas in the Bahamas Bowl.

RE: 2022 MAC Bowl Picture
EMU would be very appealing to QL, like Ken and Sellers said they like to have a local school in it when possible. EMU has never been in the Idaho bowl so that might be an option, though same could be said for Arizona and Myrtle Beach. I know for a fact Arizona wanted EMU last season.

RE: 2022 MAC Bowl Picture
Personal opinion only.

If we win out and get to 8 wins, I would be thrilled and be excited about our bowl game. If we win 7, my joy diminishes. If we win 6, I hope we stay home.

CMU and WMU played two payday games against P5 opponents while we played just one and yes, I agree with our scheduling, it allows us another much-needed home game. It also, however, gives a much better chance at a "W" but no $$$$. A 6-6 record with two payday games is somewhat appealing, with just one, it is not.

I'm amazed that EMU gave Creighton an automatic year extension for simply making a bowl game, given the Murphy experience of 20 wins for such. When half of the FBS goes to bowl games and the basketball coach can load his schedule with D2 and D3 opponents, are we truly rewarding exceptional performance?

I really hope we win out with 3-0

2-1 to get to 7-5 is what I predicted and I'd be ok with that. I don't love it, but given our lack of good coaching schemes and play calling, that is about right.

1-2 to get to 6-6 is an embrassment given the talent we have.

Remember that we get a chunk of $$$$ for a bowl game and I'm pretty certain the better the bowl game, the more money.

Hopefully we win out but I'm thinking it's 2-1 to get to 7-5

I don’t think the game at Akron is automatic at this point.
