Belt Loops: Commissioner Steinbrecher Sheds More Light On Camellia Bowl

Dave Reginek

Our (sometimes) daily look around the world of MAC news sheds more light on how the Camellia Bowl came to fruition and Miami's Austin Boucher is ready to finally take the reigns.

φ MAC Commissioner Jon Steinbrecher offers more details on the Camellia Bowl — SI caught up with the MAC Commissioner shortly after the Camellia Bowl was confirmed yesterday, and was able to garner some more details about how the bowl came to fruition. Steinbrecher addresses the conference's relationship with ESPN. Oh, and we should all be happy to hear this: He all but confirmed that another primary bowl tie-in will be announced soon. So chalk it up folks, looks like the MAC will have at least four primary bowls in the very near future.

φ Ohio heads into second fall scrimmage — The 'Cats camp is winding down, and not much has been established so far. Ohio's still dealing with some depth issues on the offensive line, and the tight end issue has become even more concerning as two more players have been lost for the season. But with the hardest part of camp now over, Ohio can focus on establishing its depth chart in the next few days as the focus turns towards their huge match up with Louisville on Sept. 1.

φ Austin Boucher is ready for his long awaited encore — The new RedHawks starting quarterback is entering his senior season as the clear-cut starter. He's taking over for Miami career passing leader Zac Dysert, the same player Boucher filled in for masterfully in the last half of the 2010 season. Since then Boucher has been waiting in the wings, in a long, and challenging test of his patience. Finally though the offense is his, and in his final season in Oxford, he'll get an opportunity to prove once and for all if he's really as good as advertised three years ago.

φ The Zips men's soccer team is hoping a trio of Brit's can help them take the next step — Akron's men's soccer team is good. Very good. They have been for some time, even capturing a national championship back in 2010. But now they're under new leadership in first-year head coach Jared Embick. The No. 8 ranked Zips are loaded, but Embick hopes the addition of three highly skilled British newcomers will be the missing piece in Akron's quest for another national title.
