Sunday--December 16th, 2012

Toledo hung with Utah State in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl for three quarter then got crushed in the final 15 minutes.

The Star Press discusses the challenges of Ball State's trip to Beef O'Brady Bowl. The most interesting part is page 3 where the support from the MAC makes the difference. One phenomena that I have noticed is a number of people in the school's academic community take the importunity to travel to the bowl site on the Athletic Department's tab.

Prudent assessment of the traveling party makes a difference.

The Big East Catholic schools won't be able to leave until 2015, which should give the A10 some breathing room to plan it's defense.

The MAC should make a pitch for Army, Navy and Cincinnati in football to bring the league to 16 teams. All would be a good geographic fit and would add some flavor to the all state run institutions.

Some people wonder if Temple would have been better off to stay in the MAC and A10.
