"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
No comments....looks about right
Not the GERG-ish performance of the NIU-Toledo game, but a MAC-ish game all the same. As it is the MAC, it's right in line with expectations then.
Benard Peirce Just would tear up the B1G. I heard BPJ runs a 4.1 40 and benches 800 lbs.
I could have sworn Ohio had Indiana at home this weekend.
I think the OP means Ohio (NTO).
Looks like an EMU game I was forced to attend about 15 years ago.....the things I would do for...well, anyway...
Same Temple team that lost (ridiculously) to Penn State 14 - 10...same team that beat Maryland 38 - 7...
That fake punt was a gutsy call. I think it was an option. If that side wasn't so wide open, they probably would've still kicked it.
Ohio plays Indiana this week.
I love their uiniforms. I wish the team was this good when I went there! since games were free for students, we stayed till halftime then went uptown to continue drinking.
Ohio university, the original Ohio!
I assume you stayed to see the band then left, as I did when I went there. Like the jerseys kind of Hawaii-esque but love the gun metal black helmets. Best game I ever went to there was 16-10 OT win over Pitt with a pick 6 in OT to win it.
Definitely gotta stay for the band! Frank Solich has done a great job turning that program around. I think OU won two or three games each year when I was there, and the Bobcats have been to bowls several years in a row. Now we just have to win one....
whats up with all these mid week MAC matchups
Northern Illinois v. Bowling Green. Tuesday 11/8
Western Michigan v. Toledo. Tuesday 11/8
Miami (OH) v. Temple. Wednesday 11/9
Ohio v. Central Michigan. Thursday 11/10
It is the best way for the conference to get exposure. If this game were played on a Saturday, would anyone even be talking about this game? It would just be another 35-31 game that someone would see on the bottom of ESPN and not care about. The MAC has gotten lucky this week in that both of their primetime weekday games have actually been very good and entertaining to watch.
They've been doing this for years, at least since 2003 as I recall watching Roethlisberger and Miami on back to back Tuesday nights way back when.
Is this the first time you've really noticed this? Not picking on you, but I am a little surprised anybody who follows college football is surprised by Tuesday, Wed games in these league come late October and throughout November.
Its longtime standard operating/programming procedure.
This Temple QB is really exciting. Great response to the Ohio TD.
50 yard gains...with 4 to go...I am looking at you Chuck Heater.
Watching these MAC games remind me of 10' Michigan team
Srsly.? Rivals confirms.
lots of derps in that league
