MAC Football Christmas Gifts

Bowling Green might have lost Santa Clawson, but Santa Clause is still coming to all of the Mid-American Conference football teams bearing gifts!


Last night Santa Claus embarked on his annual cross-globe trek to deliver presents to all the good boys and girls across the globe. But wait, whats that? He left some presents under the tree's of all 13 MAC schools as well? Well, let's take a look at what they asked for this year:

Akron - Akron was far from naughty this season. Terry Bowden is a jolly-lookin' fellow and so Santa is heading up north to give the Zips a schedule that only includes UMass, Miami, Kent State and Toledo!

Ball State - Ball State would love their school's first bowl win for Christmas, but an even better gift would be a crystal ball so the Cardinals can know what Pete Lembo's future holds.

Bowling Green - Maybe Santa should bring Bowling Green some respect. Travis Greene was unbelievable in his first season at running back, they boast the conference's best defense and Matty J out-dueled Jordan Lynch to bring the Falcons a MAC Championship. Merry Christmas, Dino Babers.

Buffalo - The Bulls came close to winning the MAC East this season. They probably wish their stockings hold extra years of eligibility for Khalil Mack and Bo Oliver.

Central Michigan - The Chips became bowl eligible because of a three-game win streak. Maybe St. Nicholas brings them a win streak to start next year off on a better foot.

Eastern Michigan - If Ron English were still the man in charge in Ypsilanti, he would love some non-Shitbird Football. Well, I guess that's what Chris Creighton wants, too...

Kent State - Santa won't be riding on his sleigh alone because he needs to bring Kent the next Dri Archer. A bounce-back season could be a result of their 2013 Christmas gift.

Massachusetts - The Minutemen have a lot of young, talented players on both offense and defense. A baller quarterback would be nice. They play at Gillette... Does Tom Brady have any years of eligibility left/can he fit in a gift bag?

Miami - A win? Hello? Please? Santa, baby, hurry down the chimney with this gift

Northern Illinois - I bet they wish Santa brings them a re-do. And then a MAC Championship Game win. And then a BCS Bowl. Really, NIU needs a time machine.

Ohio - Ohio already got a nice Christmas vacation to St. Pete but if they're the spoiled rich kid who could get anything they want for Christmas they should ask for an offensive playbook more extensive than three plays, a run defense, fans who stay past halftime, etc.

Toledo - They'd love to get a bowl game. Unfortunately, Santa already brought Akron that schedule that includes the Rockets.

Western Michigan - Plugs for a leaking boats are great stocking-stuffers. Fortunately, P.J. Fleck has a year of head coaching under his belt and the boat should floating next year.
