MAC Championship Game

    Well...Toledo is back in the MAC Championship again after missing it last year. I'm not sure if they or Marshall have been in the game more. And they are going up against Miami, who won it's second consecutive MAC East title and it looking for it's second consecutive MAC Championship.

    I believe both these teams are going to get a bowl game regardless. I'm not positive though because I know Marshall and Bowling Green already have accepted bowl bids, and I didn't know that the MAC was going to get 4 teams in bowls this year, I only thought 3. So if anybody knows about the bowl situation for Miami and Toledo let me know.

    Miami is a 1 point favorite and this looks to be the best game left on the college football schedule. Can you imagine how good Miami would be if QB Ben Roethlisberger would have stayed for his Senior year. This game would probably be for a BCS birth for Miami. QB play is the one uncertainty that Miami has. They have a stellar defense and Clemens is one of the better backs in the country. As long as Betts doesn't turn the ball over I think Miami's ground game and defense will be enough to control the game.

    I hope you all watch this one...it should be exciting. I have no clue how many tickets sold for Ford Field, but I am assuming the place may be pretty empty. I still don't understand why the game isn't at Miami. Last year it was at Bowling Green and I think the attendance would be higher if it were played at the school. I went to the Miami @ Bowling Green game last year, and they weren't even sold out there, so I'm not sure how well they can sell Ford Field in Detroit.

    The game is starting! I wonder what the O/U on them mentioning Roethlisberger in this game. They've alread said his name 3 times in the first minute.

    This is the one bad thing about conference championships. Miami already beat Toledo this year. Now they have to do it again. It's hard to beat a good team twice in a row.

    Ugh...the staidum looks really empty. Herbie just mentioned Big Ben (that's 4)

    Herbie did it again...that's 5.

    Jill Arington looks pretty hot tonight! I want to see her naked.

    6...7...for Roethlisberger...one for Herbie and one for Corso.

    Now Jill says his name, and Terry Hoepner does too. That's 8 and 9.

    Bowl situation for Toledo-Miami

    Winner gets Motor City bowl.

    According to Fowler, 'loser' will probably go to the bowl in San Fran.

    So the winner gets to come back to Ford Field? LoL. Well I hope Miami wins so I can go to the bowl game in Detroit. But if they lose San Fransico isn't that bad. 4 MAC teams in a bowl game...that's quite amazing.

    Nande is a great LB for Miami. Good player to watch.

    Toledo is just running the ball down Miami's throats. Miami's defense looks flat.

    You knew that play action was coming and it was going to work. That was disgusting. 7-0 Toledo and they made it look easy. 74 yards.

    They have a shot at 5.

    Toledo, Miami, BG (GMAC), Marshall (Ft. Worth), and N. Illinois might go to the Independence Bowl.

    This isn't scientific, but I'd be willing to bet that the MAC has turned out more first round QB's than any other conference over the last few years.
     
  8. I think Fowler all but promised this at the onset of the game

    and on a side note, i have never seen so many plugs for ohio, plugging every city and town and some obscure fact or a company that is based out of there. the blue jackets, have been referenced a handful of times, this is nearly comical.

    Damn! RedHawk's lost :( I was real close to getting tickets for the Motor City Bowl, if they won i most likely would have got them (229 row 7)
