It’s safe to say that the Ohio University Bobcats are breaking the mold in the MAC by being a consistent high-level performer. Not relying on a big time QB or gimmicky offense, the Bobcats use discipline and good football IQ to just win. And win they have. At the top of their game notes, you are swiftly informed in all caps: “MOST WINS BY ANY MAC EAST TEAM SINCE 2006 | 35 NFL DRAFT PICKS | 5X MAC CHAMPION | 4X MAC EAST CHAMPION | NINE-STRAIGHT YEARS OF BOWL ELIGIBILITY”. That’s the kind of legacy that just doesn’t happen much in mid-major football. The next chapter begins today, and the opening paragraph is a home game versus FCS Howard.
