I'm just going to be honest here, it's absolutely preposterous that the MAC is going to play a 6-game football season. Like it doesn't even qualify as futilely stupid.

Make a decision and freaking stick with it. Decision makers are such cowards. have the conviction to make the right call the first time, or leave the job.


I wonder if this means MAC teams won't be eligible for the playoff?


Hahhaaa!

Does anybody know where we stand regarding opt-outs, etc?


Wow. Here are the PROS and CONS:

Pros
* Athletes will increase their draft or signing chances with multiple positions on file.
* Might find out that an athlete actually fits better at a different position than what the staff originally thought.
* Can use the low numbers as a recruiting tool

CONS
*Fatigued by end of game
*Increase in injuries
*Decrease in morale if loses pile up
*Passive coaching style to save athletes body for postseason opportunities
*Opted-out athletes will lose 1/2 year of experience against live competition.


Kind of wish they are our crossover game for 2020.


They have been working out and practicing for over a month, how would they be "fatigued" by the end of the game? They literally have had since August to get and be ready, and stuck on campus.



If they are down in numbers in several positions....that means either walk on with no experience get time or players play both ways. You know how hard it is to play both ways in college? Multiple meetings and film....crossover practice (doing DB and WR drills for example). Its not easy. And trust me...you can prepare all August to play both ways. Doesn't mean you will have the gas to do it all 6 games. They will be tackled and have to tackle. Double the body damage.

Just curious why you think they are down in numbers?

They will be inexperienced in a lot of positions.

1. 3* TE Tony Poljan to Virginia Cavaliers

2. 3* CB Montrae Braswell to Missouri St. (4th in MAC in passes deflected)

3. 3* DE Mike Danna to Michigan

4. 2* WR Julian Hicks to Akron

5. 3* WR Jack Combs to Iowa

6. 3* CB Randall Harris to New Hampshire

7. 2* LB Carleton Cleophat to Bethune Cook man

8. 3* QB George Pearson > portal

9. 3* WR Bailey Edwards > portal

10. 2* DT Shawn Wiley > portal

11. 2* DT Dante Cleveland > portal

12. 2* OL Cameron Vaughn > portal

13. 2* OL Jake Dominguez > portal

14. 2* LB Braeden Childress > portal


That's a lot of unhappy players.
