Needless to say, a sufficient amount of shuffling was required. Pick a card, any card.

Two great running backs. One medium-strength quarterback. A kicker. Close games. Folks, this is as close as we'll get to a Big Ten offense in the MAC. @NIU

It's not just Chad Spann and Chandler Harnish that run, but fellow backs Jasmin Hopkins, Ricky Crider and Cameron Bell are all averaging at least 6.0 yards per carry. Each have a run of at least 29 yards. DEPTH BACKS. Temple

All right, so maybe the No. 1 rank was a little premature. But look at that turnover margin (+7). So as long as they don't lose the magic rock six times in Idaho this weekend, they'll still come out ahead. @Boise
State

I had Miami finishing 3-9. So here we are. Seven-game losing streak, anyone? @Cincinnati

You know how you try to sink a Cheerio in the milk but it just keeps floating back up the side? That's what I do when thinking that OHIO is done for good. But nope ... they just keep on elevating above mediocrity. BGSU

So you've just lost to Ball State. Do you (a) panic, (b) really panic, or (c) pray to the God of LeFevour for mercy? @Virginia

Oh, goodness, the turnovers. Just 16 giveaways in five games. Hopefully they didn't schedule the Salvation Army for a home-and-home (Oct. 16)

I'm starting to think this MAC East trendy pick is starting to lose its flair. Much like my Tamagotchi. Akron

So, does this team want to score points or what? They had 49 against Nicholls State and 51 vs. Michigan State, Toledo, and Idaho. @Ball State

Can't run. Can't stop the run. Can't pass efficiently. Can't stop the pass very much. Can't get healthy on the offensive line. But they are the orangiest. @OHIO

It's Tuesday, so maybe it's time to lift our jaw up from the floor and insert it back into our mouth over this game. Possibly. We all recover at different times. WMU

Next weekend they're playing their rivals for a single wagon wheel, which may as well be a symbol of their own offense. @Kent
State

At least they're bringing in the nacho lovers. And also the sadists. @Vanderbilt
