Congrats, folks - we made it through another week! We’re excited about this week’s pod, and thankful as always for each of you choosing to spend some time with us.

In the news segment this week, the boys discuss Kevin Marks’ decision to ultimately stay at Buffalo, as well as some significant transfer news out of Northern Illinois. With everyone getting an extra year of eligibility, it’s proving to be a crazy off-season in college football. Elsewhere in the news, we discuss the All-MAC Academic football team, as well as the Tom Arth rumors.

For this weeks’ rivalry segment, Zach and Sam go over the Twitter responses for the Battle of I-75. Without a doubt one of the most fiercely contested rivalries in the MAC, we asked Toledo and Bowling Green fans to give some of their favorite memories from the rivalry.

To close out the show, the boys break down the week that was on the hardwood. On the men’s side, Akron and Kent State seem to be finding their stride, while Bowling Green has hit a rocky patch. On the women’s side, Ohio picked up a huge win and Northern Illinois continued their strong form of recent. Zach and Sam give their performances of the week, while also previewing some of the best game for the week ahead.
