    Maybe to drum up some outside attention... Here's a vid of our SF Chris Evans last year vs WMU at home.

    I live in a MAC stronghold, so by proxy I kind of follow MAC sports. Good year for their football teams--not sure how they will fare on the hardwood.

    I think Ball St. plays IU this year. We're really going to struggle. Major holes in the lineup, with a coach that hasn't done a very good job at making adjustments. This might be Taylor's last year.

    Northern Illinois currently struggling(down 17) against Valpo. I didn't expect much more than bottom-dwelling for them anyway.

    Since86, I think Ball St. has a decent chance of taking out at least one of the directional Michigans this year, but the gulf between the good and the bad in the west is gaping.

    Ya they play @ AH this year. Im gonna try to go to as many BSU games as I can this year. I usually only make it to 3-4 a year but I need to get to more.

    Hopefully Scaife, Jones, and Berry can do some things this year.

    Jones is gone. BSU has 7 freshman on the roster. Scaife and Berry both need to have good years to even be respectable, and I'm not so sure they're built to carry teams.

    An ESPN boxscore, no doubt. They always have one boner per team in there. Not sure why.

    With the MAC the number of screw ups increases exponentially. For example, in our opening game against Drexel, the leading scorer on our team had 6 points on 2-3 shooting, with the team shooting 3-7 on the game.

    Since it's MAC related, I'll go ahead and bring it up.

    Ball St. football has been on a tear for the last month+. Had they not lost that NIU game, they'd be sitting at 9-2 (6-1 in the MAC) and getting a rematch with Kent St in the MAC title game. (That NIU game was brutal for red zone TOs. They beat themselves)

    292 rushing yards in the second half last night. 357 rushing yards total, 9.3 yards per rush average. Sucks that Wenning left with an injury, but really nice to see Kelly Page get some PT and then deliever on Senior Night.

    One more game against a pretty average MAC Miami team. 9-3 and an at-large bowl berth is a great season. Hope Coach Lembo stays around for a bit longer. The turn around he's done for the program has been amazing.

    Football related, Kent State has gone undefeated in conference play and are ranked 23rd in the country. Clinched the East last week against Bowling Green punched a ticket to the championship game. Our offense is led by four year starter Spencer Keith who set the school record for career passing yards(not hard to do for a historically bad run based offense) and our thunder and lightning duo of Traiyon Durham and Dri Archer.

    Next year might not be that great, we're graduating a lot of starters(particularly on the O-line and almost all of our defensive leaders, save Roosevelt Nix).

    Ok so we lost to Valpo a few games ago but last night we beat Nebraska in Lincoln. I really have no idea how good or bad the MAC is anymore.

    Ball State getting run off the floor right now, but offensively Majok is holding his own. Couple of nasty spin/offensive moves and he isnt afraid to attack Zeller @ all.

    It gives me a pretty good idea of how bad Nebraska is this year.

    BSU going down to St. Pete for the Beef O'Brady's Bowl.

    Really hoping Coach Lembo stays on for a couple more years before he gets his big pay day from a major conference school. The turnaround he's managed has been spectatular.

    Now on to the bad.

    Got to actually see Ball St play vs Butler this year. They look like a bad high school team. Billy Taylor is an awesome human being, and a downright horrible coach and recruiter.
