Happy Friday folks! Another week down, another week closer to football season. Let’s get to it!

On this weeks’ news segment, Zach and Sam talk about the bevy of contract extensions recently announced at Ball State. The most noteworthy are AD Beth Goetz and football coach Mike Neu, though baseball coach Rich Maloney, women’s basketball coach Brady Sallee, and men’s basketball coach James Whitford.

In other men’s basketball news, Ohio PG Jason Preston announced that he would keep his name in the NBA draft and thus will not be returning to the Bobcats this year. This marks the end of an incredible run for Preston in Athens, who won the MAC tournament and knocked off Virginia in the NCAA tournament this past March. Best of luck to Jason as he begins his professional career.

In football news, the boys break down and debate the recently released “All-MAC 21st Century Team” which was compiled by Bleacher Report. Who was snubbed from the list? Who made the team that didn’t deserve to be there? Zach and Sam both give their thoughts. Let us know what you think!

Thanks for stopping by yet again this week folks. Have a great weekend, and we’ll see you back here next week!
