Welcome back to your favorite meditative way of reading up on news from the last week of the MAC football season.

In case you’re new around here, MACku recaps all the games played over the period of a week involving MAC schools and recaps them in haiku form, using the traditional five syllable-seven-syllable, five-syllable poetic style to try and capture the feel of a particular game.

Let’s get straight to it.


Buffalo vs. Army (13-42)

The boys of West Point yell

“The Knights fear no animal!”

The Bulls retreated.


Central Michigan vs. Michigan State (20-31)

Green and white ground bled

Maroon and gold swirled helpless

Yet, found inner will.


Ohio vs. UMass (58-42)

The scrappy Bobcat

proved Minutemen muskets false

leaving a worn trail.


Bowling Green vs. Georgia Tech (17-63)

Run, run, run, run, run

Look around, look around, lost.

A swarm, out and in.


Ball State vs. Kent State (52-24)

Red bird, yellow bird.

What do you see in the end?

A yellow bird, blood red.


Western Michigan v. Miami (40-39)

Fast like a Dervish

Who whirls and gigs, timeless.

Scintillating, fun.


Eastern Michigan vs. Northern Illinois (20-23, 3OT)

Nothing but grey seeps

Surrounding the eyes and limbs

“Blandness, I become.”


Toledo vs. Fresno State (27-49)

Enlightened searching

Becomes nightmarish self-loathe.

Murphy’s Law, again.
