Long time no talk, folks!

We hope everyone has had a wonderful week thus far, and we’re excited to bring you into the weekend with another episode of the podcast. Thanks for stopping by!

Opening up this week’s show, we take a look at the news of the week in the MAC universe. The MAC placed two teams in the post season football top 25 for the first time since 2003, which is very exciting news for the conference. In some less than exciting news for Buffalo fans, Kevin Marks surprised a lot of us by entering his name in the transfer portal. Rounding out the news, the MAC announced the format of the upcoming baseball season! We discuss the schedule adjustments and what they could mean.

In the B block, the boys introduce a new segment - The Anatomy of the Rivalries in the MAC. This stemmed from last weeks Twitter question, where we asked you all what you thought the best rivalries in the conference were. Moving forward, follow along with us on Twitter, as we’ll be asking your opinions on a different rivalry each week. This week, we’ll be focusing on the Battle of I-75 between Toledo and Bowling Green. Let us know on Twitter - what are your best memories of the rivalry? What have been the best, most memorable games? Share your thoughts with us!

Closing out this weeks’ show, the boys break down the week that was on the hardwood. Toledo continues their roll on the men’s side of things, while Northern Illinois made a serious statement on the women’s side. The boys give their recap of the week, and take a look at some of the best games on the schedule for the week ahead. Things are starting to shape up as conference play continues, and we’re here to cover it all!
