Jeremy Guy: the voice of the MAC

New, 10 comments

Last night, we discussed MAC students being B1Gger fans of schools they don't attend. Today, Jeremy Guy settles the score.

USA TODAY Sports

It all started with an article published last night: about a simple the internal struggle that every student going to a Mid-American Conference school goes through.

Then this morning, Matt Sussman (who?) defined what MACtion is.

Mr. Jeremy Guy read these articles, went on Twitter and proceeded with a much-needed rant. Here are the highlights:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p>One of my favorite topics. RT <a href="https://twitter.com/HustleBelt">@HustleBelt</a>: Can MAC fans also root for B1G teams?</p>&mdash; Jeremy Guy (@JGuyMAC) <a href="https://twitter.com/JGuyMAC/statuses/363349734661947393">August 2, 2013</a></blockquote>

Me too, Guy. But I'll reserve my thoughts for another time.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p>If I&#39;m being completely honest - I don&#39;t care who you root for. You have the right to root for both. However....</p>&mdash; Jeremy Guy (@JGuyMAC) <a href="https://twitter.com/JGuyMAC/statuses/363351472240467968">August 2, 2013</a></blockquote>

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p>One of my BIGGEST pet peeves is to see B1G stuff being worn at MAC events.

There's a consensus here, right? Right?

Michigan gear at EMU, Michigan State gear at CMU, Illini gear at NIU...

Yes, yes, keep going. I like this one; six schools go to a bowl game, one of which was an NIU team that went to the BCS Orange Bowl.
