A couple MAC links for Thursday consumption:
• We're about a week away from Temple's first game, you see, and they're still undecided on a quarterback. Steve Addazio says the race is down to two people. But, hey, we know of three quarterbacks: Chester Stewart, Mike Gerardi and Chris Coyer. He's not going to tell anybody who the two people are. And he might even know who he's going to start, saying at their media day "I'd be okay with either one of them right now."
Stewart was benched in the first quarter of their win over Bowling Green in favor of Gerardi. The left-handed Coyer appears to be the third party candidate, although it looks like he's the No. 1 holder. Hooray! [The 700 Level]
• NIU safety Tracy Wilson left the program to pursue an NFL career but chose to do this after the NFL Draft filing deadline. He wasn't taken in the supplemental draft but thankfully the New York Jets found him a home. [Pro Football Weekly]
• Former CMU womens basketball double-double machine Kaihla Szunko is going to play professionally in Finland with Torpan Pojat (ToPo) in Helsinki. Szunko is the first MAC womens hoopster to record 1,000 points, 1,000 rebounds and 200 steals. [CM-Life]
• This is where you learn that Kent State is not only favored to win the MAC field hockey championship, but it only has six teams and one of them is Missouri State. The season begins tomorrow. [MAC-Sports]
You know football season is almost here because we have the annual CMU suspensions! This time it's Kashawn Fraser and Lorenzo White who will miss the opener against South Carolina State, and Fraser will also miss the trip to Kentucky. As you remember, Fraser was arrested a couple times, while White was arrested for stealing a bike that had a GPS system. [Morning Sun]
