Presenting the Directional Michigan University Mascot


Jason Kirk over at SB Nation came up with the brilliant idea of smashing the three directional Michigan's together and forming one MAC superpower: Directional Michigan University, or DMU.

While he came up with most of the logistics of this hypothetical super MAC team, he forgot to come up with a mascot. Combining the best parts of the three school's mascots we came up with this (sorry CMU fans, you don't get to bring any of the Chippewa mascot over, because you know, racism). What shall we name him?

Bowling Green Football Wants to Welcome You to 'The Good Life'

Fresh off an embarrassing stomping at the feet of the Indiana Hoosiers the Bowling Green Falcons want to remind you that BG Football is good. To do so they've enlisted the help of one MR. Kanye West, circa 2007. In a masterful blend of Yeezy and Falcons highlights you almost forget the fact that Bowling Green was dismantled by the Hoosiers last week...almost. Even Kanye isn't that good.

Watch Chandler Harnish Bean Pam Oliver In The Face With A Tight Spiral

Chandler Harnish was an electrifying quarterback during his time in DeKalb. Known for his cannon arm, and a decent set of wheels, he was one of the best all-around quarterbacks the MAC has ever seen. Since he left DeKalb though, not much has been seen or heard of the now Colts backup quarterback. Well, at least we know all that time carrying a clipboard hasn't impacted his throwing ability.

Watch A Ball State Freshman Nail A Half-Court Shot For Free Tuition

Markus Burdun is off to a great start as a college student. On his first day at Ball State the freshman was randomly selected from the crowd of an event during Freshman Welcome Week Thursday evening. Burden was given the opportunity to win free tuition for a semester if he could nail a half-court shot. After three missed attempts, Burden nailed the fourth shot, earning nearly $12,000 in free tuition (he's an out-of-state student). Not bad for a first day of college. Don't worry kid, your first mid-term will bring you back down to earth.
