We’re Gonna Take This Sitting Down
Image by hail2thesuss via FlickrThe G…. Game of the Week? Between two 2-2 teams, an undefeated team trudging along after the horrific Dante Love collision, and WMU trying to improve to 4-1 against Temple, the televised/featured MAC Game of the Week is freaking Eastern Michigan and Northern Illinois? Sure, I know they probably determine these things before they suit up their laces, but how can even in July people in suits look at this game and say, “Yep, EMU and NIU will be the game to watch.” Just because a game ends 6-3 doesn’t mean it will be an exciting showdown between two evenly-matched teams. Gah.
12 noon — NIU (1-2, 0-1) at EMU (1-3, 0-1) ◼ ESPN Game Plan
To echo Norm McDonald, “Happy Birthday, Jesus! Hope you like crap!”
12 noon — Kent St. (1-3) at Ball St. (4-0) ◼ ESPN Game Plan
I still think the Cardinals have a real chance to go undefeated, even without the services of Dante Love. Perhaps they have even more incentive to run the table with their senior on the sidelines cheering them on.
2:00 p.m. — VMI (2-1) at Ohio (0-4) ◼ The hills (because, see, they have eyes)
Boo? Boo Jackson? Dark One? Beelzebub? Chief? McCloud!
2:00 p.m. — WMU (3-1, 1-0) at Temple (1-3, 0-1) ◼ Hell, the NSA has everything monitored, ask them for a copy
Could this be the first ever win for Temple over the Broncos? For the first time, consider it a solid “maybe.”
4:00 p.m. — Buffalo (2-2, 1-0) at CMU (2-2, 1-0) ◼ Alternate Dimension ESPN Game Plan
Suddenly CMU doesn’t look like the prohibitive favorite anymore, says Mark Torosian of the Bleacher Report. And out of nowhere … Buffalo kind of does. Ladies and gentlepeople, your Official Non-Official MAC Game of the Week.
4:00 p.m. — BG (1-2) at Wyoming (2-2) ◼ The Mountain
First Boise, Idaho. Now Laramie, Wyoming. If this is BG’s clever way of trying to become a West coast mid-major team, I’m not impressed.
7:00 p.m. — Florida Int’l (0-3) at Toledo (1-2) ◼ BCSN
Glass Bowl, meet Ned. Ned, Glass Bowl.
