Hey folks! We’re back this week with episode 4 of the Mid-American Bandwagon podcast, and we have some great stuff that we’re excited to share with you this week.

First up, Sam and Zach discuss some more non-conference scheduling news for the upcoming football season, including a replacement game for Ball State. The boys follow this up with a quick breakdown of recruiting and take a look at the current rankings for the football classes of 2021.

In the second segment, Zach and Sam recap their “Mt. Rushmore of Central Michigan” segment from last week, and take to Twitter to see how the internet responded. When it comes to the Twitter mentions, you folks really brought it this week – we got some great feedback, and may have even been convinced that one of the names brought up deserves to be on the list!

Finally, the boys are joined by class of 2020 Ball State commit, punter Lucas Borrow! Being from Australia, Lucas highlights his journey playing Australian Rules football and talks about how he transitioned to the American game, as well as what his recruiting process was like. He even gives the boys a tip on who to root for in the AFL! You certainly won’t want to miss this one.
