We’ve made it through another week folks, congrats! This time of year is extra special, with both football and basketball seasons now in full swing. There’s a lot to cover this week!

In the A block, Zach and Sam break down various headlines from around the MAC universe. In football, there was the cancellation of the Kent State-Miami, as well as the slew of awards that Jarret Patterson and Buffalo garnered last week after their incredible performance. In basketball, we had Jason Preston’s breakout performance, the Ohio women’s upset of Notre Dame, as well as some announced changes to the upcoming conference schedule.

Following the news, the boys break down the week 4 football results while also looking forward to week 5. From Eastern Michigan’s fourth quarter collapse against Toledo to Buffalo’s dominant performance against Kent State, Zach and Sam give their thoughts on each week 4 match up. Looking forward to week 5, our hosts give their predictions on how they see the penultimate week of the season playing out.

(Editor’s note: This episode was recorded and released prior to the Ohio/Buffalo football cancellation. Our apologies. Our brief discussion on that game runs from the 52:13-53:45, feel free to skip right past!)

To close out the show, the boys review the early season results on the hardwood. MAC play is set to begin this weekend (what a weird year), but a lot of MAC squads have already had some very notable non-conference games. The boys break down the notable results thus far, as well as give a quick recap of the standings, on both the men’s and women’s side.
