MAC Blogger Roundtable

So, the MAC Blogger roundtable is back for the week.  This week, our host is our arch-rivals at Let's Go Rockets...

1.  With UMass exiting the MAC at the conclusion of the season, is it in the conference’s best interest to stay at 12 teams or pursue two teams, one to replace and one to even the divisions? If the MAC goes after two, which two teams fit well or what teams would you like to see join the conference?

I think we stay at 12.  Still enough for a title game and an even number--as in a number that can be equally split into TWO divisions.  At one time you worried about expansion as a defensive measure (lest you end up like the WAC) but now that appears to be have settled in and the next big move will be the Power 5 leaving the NCAA and doing their own things.  Looking around, there are not (to me) any obvious choices.  WKU is in C-USA...maybe Middle Tennessee.  Lastly, I am holding firm to my belief that BG should not bring any more football-only schools.  We are 0-3 with that approach.

2.If your respective team was destined to lose every remaining game on their schedule save for one that you could pick, which game would they win and why?

Are you talking to me?  Are you talking to me?  Are you talking to me?  Well, I'm the only one here.  Who the f**k do you think you're talking to?  Anyway, the answer is obvious...if BG did finish 6-6, it would be oh so much more palatable to have one of the six be a win over UT.

3.  College football has seen some impressive fan displays this year with fan wearing a specific color (white out, blue out, etc.), striping the stands, checker-boarding the stands, etc. To what degree has your team embraced this trend? Has it been successful? What can be done to improve the fan participation and get more fans on board?

I think it looks cool when it gets pulled off but I would be happy to find a way to keep fans from wearing their Ohio State gear to home BG games.

We have the same problem at UT games with the OSU gear showing up. Never understood the mind set

Yeah, it makes me crazy...I get it, you root for UT/BG and OSU, nothing wrong with that...but honor your school.
