88. Sloppy Men
EPISODE 88 We take no pleasure in talking about Brett Gabbert's season-ending injury. We do take a lot of pleasure in talking about potential year-end chaos scenarios.

87. Like we’ve always said, it looks like Miami’s year
EPISODE 87 MIAMI. TOLEDO. CENTER STAGE. YAGER STADIUM. Hey, Ohio, since we know you're reading this: what happened? Guys. We thought you were better than this. No surprise to see NIU turn things around, but the fall from grace didn't need to be so drastic. Also, while we're at it: who's your mid-season pick for offensive player of the year?

86.The QB version of Jamie Moyer
EPISODE 86 We have reached the midpoint of the season! Everybody has played two MAC games so far and there are four MAC teams with 2-0 records in conference play. Toledo, Ohio, Miami, and... Buffalo? NIU lost to Toledo, but has a chance bring its revenge tour back home with Ohio coming up. WMU's QB room just got more interesting after Hayden Woff's Mississippi State game. Could Kent State actually get a win at EMU this weekend? Twitters: @ARAlvarado13, @Kaleb_M_Carter, and @NIFFOCNITSUJ.

85. Learn how to click buttons, Justin
EPISODE 85 Bowling Green beats Georgia Tech, and Buffalo finally gets its first win of the year. Sadly, D.J. Irons will miss the rest of the year for Akron with an ACL tear.

84. What’s the money for?
EPISODE 84 Another non-conference season (mostly) in the books for everybody. We know it's an Ohio vs. The World world out there, but damnit if their main rival isn't playing like favorites right now.  Twitters: @ARAlvarado13, @Kaleb_M_Carter, and @NIFFOCNITSUJ.

81. Bad College
EPISODE 81 LAKE MICHIGAN TAKES DOWN ANOTHER ALL COASTS CONFERENCE SCHOOL. NORTHERN ILLINOIS' VICTIM THIS TIME: BOSTON COLLEGE. Toledo choked away its one-time lead against Illinois. EMU, WMU, and Ohio all took care of FCS competition. More scores from the MAC's Week 1 games, and "Sean Lewis offense" is in the news again.  Twitters: @ARAlvarado13, @Kaleb_M_Carter, and @NIFFOCNITSUJ.

80. Rub some Jack and Coke on it
EPISODE 80 FOOTBALL HAS BEGUN! Earnest excitement over Week 0 + Week 1 simply for existing. However, Kurtis Rourke's injury at San Diego State has us wondering how good Ohio's chances are the rest of the way.  Cheers to everybody going out and celebrating the start of a new football season this weekend. Ignore the noise and enjoy what's always been great. Twitters: @ARAlvarado13, @Kaleb_M_Carter, and @NIFFOCNITSUJ.

79. No pressure, Toledo. No pressure at all.
EPISODE 79 AUGUST MEANS ACTUAL FOOTBALL IS BACK. August also means that the biggest brands in the game, the television brands, need to regain some attention. Now that the Pac-12 is dying, the boys spend time acknowledging the world that spins madly on. In the second-half of the program, we play some popcorn and sound off on why we're excited for certain MAC teams this season. Twitters: @ARAlvarado13, @Kaleb_M_Carter, and @NIFFOCNITSUJ.
