NIU is playing in the Marathon MAC Championship game for the fourth consecutive season Friday, with a shot at a third straight title and another BCS bowl berth on the line. In the spirit of the big game some NIU fans decided to make a MAC Championship song about the Huskies fourth consecutive trip to Detroit. Remixed to the tune of Mark Morrison's "Return of the MAC", the "Return to the MAC" song is a funky, awful, auto-tuned mess that's sure to get you pumped up for some MAC Football, aspirin and new eardrums. With hard-hitting lyrics such as, "Just like that the cannon blew / Sims kicks it and it goes through" and "Jimmie Ward leads the defense / And Bishop does all the rest" the only way this song could sound any worse is if Diesel rapped the whole thing in a spit-fire cadence of barks. Actually, that might be better. Just give it a listen for yourself, and be ready for "The Return to the MAC".
Dan Patrick loves himself some #MACtion, so after watching Jordan Lynch's record-breaking performance DP decided to have the talented QB on his show this morning. The pair talked Heisman voting, personnel grouping, and the just how good Lynch could be as a running back in the SEC.
Jordan Lynch had one of the best individual offensive performances in NCAA history Saturday vs. Central Michigan, finishing the day with 471 yards of total offense, four total touchdowns and an NCAA record. All in a day's work for this guy.
Zach Dacy is one tough 5-year-old. He's been battling leukemia for most of his life, and has managed to find success in his battle against he deadly disease. So when he got a chance to sack Jordan Lynch, NIU's offensive line didn't stand a chance.
Fresh off an embarrassing stomping at the feet of the Indiana Hoosiers the Bowling Green Falcons want to remind you that BG Football is good. To do so they've enlisted the help of one MR. Kanye West, circa 2007. In a masterful blend of Yeezy and Falcons highlights you almost forget the fact that Bowling Green was dismantled by the Hoosiers last week...almost. Even Kanye isn't that good.
Ho hum, just another week for the MAC's most plugged-in, in-touch marching band.
P.J. Fleck is young. P.J. Fleck is hip. P.J. Fleck wants you to know that, so he's adding a gameday DJ into the fold during WMU home games. DJ Yo Mix, as he's referred to, will be on the 1s and 2s at Waldo stadium as an added component to the WMU marching band. Oh, and if that's not enough, Fleck is starting several knew traditions, including the playing of "For whom the bell tolls" when the defense faces a third down, complete with a complex fan motion. Oh, and don't worry..."Row the Boat" is heavily involved in this as well. At the beginning of the 4th quarter DJ Yo Mix is going to spin a funky remix of the nursery rhyme that Fleck wants the fans to get up and dance to. There's even an official dance that the head coach himself was performing at the 2:36 mark of the video. Basically, Fleck is determined to make WMU home games as fun as it is to say Kalamazoo. Row the Boat!
