  1. Vote! Which player best deserves your weekly accolades? (Yes, any and all non-MAC coaches are free to vote also.)
  2. Offensive Player of the Week: RB Gabe Ciamo, Toledo 23 rushes for 190 yards, 3 TDs (W at Ball State) Have yourself a day, Gabe! The "Rushin' Rocket" shot around, through, and past all manner of Ball State defenders on his way to 2021 first Offensive Player of the Week honors. We know this game was a mismatch, but over eight yards a carry versus a stout Cardinal defensive line has to raise some eyebrows across the nation. This is somehow only Ciamo's third POTW award ever... weird. If he keeps this pace up or anything close to it, the only thing we can say for sure is that he will hear his name called early in the NFL Draft - perhaps even as early as next year. (Fun fact except for Ball State fans: Ciamo's last POTW award in Week 7 of the 2020 season also came against the Cards.) Defensive Player of the Week: CB Levern White, Toledo 4 tackles, 1 interception return for touchdown. (W vs. Ball State) Toledo's top corner picks up where he left off, already making serious headway in surpassing his 2020 totals (23 TKL, 6 INT, 1 TD). On a loaded Rocket defense White may not stand out enough every week to make the stat sheet. But it's going to be special when he does. This is White's very first player of the week award. Special Teams Player of the Week: K Brendan Higginbotham, Ohio. 4/4 XP, 4/4 FG, made 23, 28, 36, 35. (W at ODU) And if anyone was going to win the special teams award and deny Toledo the clean sweep, figures it's an Ohio kicker. The senior takes over for Bobcat legend TIMMAY Wilhelm and picks up where Wilhelm left off. Higginbotham got to swing his leg quite a few times against the hapless Monarchs, winning him this week's award. That makes his first! Only ten more to go to catch TIMMAY.... Congratulations to all the winners!
  3. With Week 0 only having one game on the books, weeks 0 and 1 are merged for this poll. Vote! Which player best deserves your weekly accolades? (Yes, any and all non-MAC coaches are free to vote also.)
  4. Offensive Player of the Week: QB T.J. Zamora, Akron . 24 of 34 for 300 yards, 3/0 TD/INT. 4 rushes for 14 yards. (W vs. Ohio) ) The Bobcats had already won the MAC East prior to this game, but the Zips definitely made sure Ohio knew it was by the skin of their teeth via a 41-14 drubbing that NO one outside of Akron saw coming. Zamora ended the regular season on a high note, beautifully orchestrating the Akron offense wherever it needed to go against a tough Ohio defense. Zamora earned his second POTW honors for the season, a nice way to end his collegiate regular season career. Defensive Player of the Week: MLB Kareem Boykin, W. Michigan . 7 tackles, 1 INT. (W at E. Michigan) A somewhat surprising early declarer for the upcoming draft, Western's stud linebacker put up a typically efficient and effective stat line for him. However unlike his other stat lines this was enough to get him his first ever Player of the Week award, so congrats to him for that! A nice little something extra to add to his resume as he prepares for the MAC Championship Game and a bowl, then the pros. Special Teams Player of the Week: WR Cayden Sampson, Kent State . 129 Punt return yards, Punt return TD. (W vs. C. Michigan) Not to be outdone by E. Michigan's Ibrahima Griggs, Kent State's Cayden Sampson also took matters into his own hands. With his team going down to the CMU Chippewas 13-0 at halftime, Sampson's punt return to the house energized the Golden Flashes and sparked the comeback that took them to their very first bowl berth. Definitely a fitting honor for Sampson (his first), and an uplifting way to bring a close to this season's weekly awards. Congratulations to all the winners! But more importantly thanks to everyone for reading along, we'll see you next season!
  5. Vote! Which player best deserves your weekly accolades? (Yes, any and all non-MAC coaches are free to vote also.)
  6. Offensive Player of the Week: QB John Garland, Kent St. 18 of 29 for 305 yards, 3 TD, 0 INT. 4 carries for 54 yards, 1 TD, 1 Fumble (0 lost). (W vs. Miami(OH) ) John Garland just won't die, and he won't let his Golden Flashes die either! At least, not this week. Facing a tall order against the Best!Miami Redhawks, Garland had another superlative performance to keep Kent State's bowl dreams alive, torching Miami deep with his arm and his legs. If he can do it one more time against Central Michigan, Garland will have taken Kent State somewhere they have never been before - a Bowl Game. Defensive Player of the Week: SS Quinn Benson, Kent St. 7 tackles, 1 INT. (W vs. Miami(OH) ) Of course the 41-28 victory over the Redhawks isn't all on the offense, especially when the FLAMETHROWER ZACK CERA has his one of his worst games of the season. The Golden Flashes were all over him and the field that day, and the senior safety exemplified that better than anyone. His sure tackling prevented the yardage after catches that Miami loves to rack up, and he even got a interception to set Kent State up for a short TD. Benson can taste the bowl game he's missed out on his entire college career, and he's hellbent on getting there before taking his shot at the pros. Special Teams Player of the Week: SS Ibrahima Griggs, E. Michigan 94 Punt return yards, Punt return TD. (W vs. Georgia St.) Hey look, we got one! A special teams touchdown, that is. The true freshman from Holland, Michigan made his mark on the game early, weaving a dazzling punt return for a TD as part of a 17-point first quarter outburst by the Eagles. Eastern rode their special teams play to an upset victory over the Georgia State Panthers, and Griggs was the catalyst for that oft-ignored third phase of the game. Congratulations to all the winners! (All previous winners found here)
  7. Because reasons, the normal time slot for discussing the MAC Players of the Week was bumped, and we have this abbreviated version. You'll notice a certain tinge of Royal Blue and White to last week's winners: QB Blair Holcomb, Buffalo. 23 of 27 for 350 yards, 5/0 TD/INT. (W vs. BGSU) ILB Lucas Callaway, Buffalo. 6 tackles, 1 sack, 2 forced fumbles, 1 fumble recovery. (W vs. BGSU) P/K Mohamed Saylor, Buffalo. 3/4 FGs (made: 42, 29, 28 - missed: 44), 6/6 XPs, 41.2 punting average. (W vs. BGSU) We DO, however, have a spicy set of nominees for you MAC coaches (and non-MAC, Everyone's Favorite Conference doesn't discriminate) to vote on for Week 15!
  8. A short week, but the was definitely not short on mind-blowing performances! Vote! Which player best deserves your weekly accolades? (Yes, any and all non-MAC coaches are free to vote also.)
  9. Offensive Player of the Week: QB Blair Holcomb, Buffalo . 22 of 29, 350 yards, 4 TD, 0 INT. (W vs. N. Illinois) There were approximately 2984 Bulls players worthy of being featured here, but Buffalo's triggerman gets the nod. Holcomb was nearly flawless in an offensive exhibition versus the Huskies that pushed him to second place in the MAC for season passing yardage, and defensive coordinators are not looking forward to seeing him return for another season under center for the Bulls. Defensive Player of the Week: FS Nicholas Mingo, Miami (OH) . 6 tackles, 2 INT (W at Ball State) From Last Week's Awards: This is also Mingo's first POTW award and Miami hopes it isn't his last. So all you have to do is nab two interceptions every week in order to show up here every week. Simple! Mingo was again crucial to the RedHawks' victory. His two picks helped to place Ball State into a deep hole they couldn't recover from, and he is making a late push for All-Conference consideration. One or two more of these games might let him aim higher.... Special Teams Player of the Week: K Timmy Wilhelm, Ohio . 4/4 FGs (made 40, 40, 35, 50), 2/2 XP (L vs. Arizona State) We GET it Timmy, you're really good! A shame Ohio couldn't get into field goal range just once more, as the Bobcats lost to the Sun Devils by two. You just know that Timmay would have come through in the clutch as he has so often in his career. He's just piling on to his record now - this is appearance number 11 for the senior placekicker, five of them in this season alone. Wilhelm should get a chance to latch on to an NFL team - he has clearly outplayed his scouting report. Congratulations to all the winners!
  10. Vote! Which player best deserves your weekly accolades? (Yes, any and all non-MAC coaches are free to vote also)
  11. Offensive Player of the Week: QB Chase Sims, W. Michigan 22 of 34, 295 yards, 3 TD, 0 INT, 2 rushes for 2 yards. (W vs Akron) In a highly-anticipated matchup against the Zips W. Michigan came out on top, and did so more comfortably than anyone expected. Sims was the catalyst for all that, completing nearly 65% of his passes to end up a nickel shy of 300 passing yards and 3 shiny touchdowns against no interceptions. This is Sims' first Player of the Week award, and a fine performance to get him there! Defensive Player of the Week: FS Nicholas Mingo, Miami (OH). 5 tackles, 2 INT (W at C. Michigan) The Redhawks seriously disrupted a Chippewa offense that had found itself over the last few weeks, and Best!Miami's free safety spearheaded the effort. Mingo picked Matt Rowland off twice and made Central Michigan pay dearly if any passes in the middle or deep third were even a fraction off-target. This is also Mingo's first POTW award and Miami hopes it isn't his last. Special Teams Player of the Week: K Nathaniel Layne, Bowling Green. 2/2 XPs, 4/5 FGs, (FG: made 44, 24, 38, 38 - missed 46) (L vs. Rice) It hasn't been the best year for Bowling Green, and it hasn't been the best year for its place kicker either. Last year's mid-season all-MAC selection has taken a step back this season (8 for 12 on FG attempts), but he did nearly everything he had to do against the visiting Owls and kept his team in it to the bitter end - hard to ask more than a 4 of 5 performance when that one miss was from long-range. This is not Layne's first POTW award ever, but it is his first for this year. Congratulations to all the winners!
  12. Vote! Which player best deserves your weekly accolades? (Yes, any and all non-MAC coaches are free to vote also)
  13. Offensive Player of the Week: RB Owen Walton, Ohio . 26 rushes for 124 yards, 1 TD (W vs. Kent State) Another strong performance from Owen. Freaking. WALTON. Rampaging all over the Kent State defense he ended up just shy of a buck and a quarter on the ground, and the Golden Flash defense got real tired real quick of having to tackle him run after bruising run. Walton is on pace for a 1350-yard regular season, yet this is somehow only his second ever Player of the Week award. Rough competition in the MAC! Defensive Player of the Week: OLB Donovan Pendleton, Ohio . 1 sack, 6 tackles (W vs. Kent State) Another Bobcat makes the list! The talented junior from Wonewoc, WI shows up here with an impressive defensive performance, introducing himself to John Garland and the rest of the Kent State offense repeatedly. While other nominees had similar statlines, we can only assume that Pendleton made it in over the others because he yelled at them really hard. Special Teams Player of the Week: K Timmy Wilhelm, Ohio . 3/3 FGs (made 29, 26, 35), 3/3 XP (W vs. Kent State) We're running out of things to say about Wilhelm, this is his FOURTH go-around as Player of the Week this season! Timmay is one of three kickers in the MAC still perfect on the year, and of those three he's converted the most field goals (17 of 17). They're not gimmes either; seven of them are from 40+ including a 41 and 46-yarder in their win over Kent State. Ohio is going to miss Timmay and his reliable leg when he graduates this year. (And also that makes a clean sweep of awards for the Bobcats. That's the THIRD time a team has done that this season, following Akron in Week 8 and Buffalo in Week 1.) Congratulations to all the winners!

  15. Offensive Player of the Week: QB Stephen Peters, Ohio. 20 of 31 for 250 yards, 3 TDs, 0 INT. 5 rushes for 58 yards One of the more remarkable stories of this MAC season is the redemption of Stephen Peters. Last year he was seen as a caretaker QB, merely holding the spot until true freshman Austin Lowe arrived to take over. But coach @beeznik never lost faith in the junior, even going so far as to redshirt Lowe. Peters rewarded his faith with his best season yet, already surpassing last season's passing yardage and TD totals - and we're barely past halfway through the year! Oh, we haven't even talked about the game last week. Peters was magnificent, having perhaps his best game of the season against a tough Toledo team. He picked apart that formidable Toledo back seven, no easy feat. Defensive Player of the Week: SS Lucas Key, Ohio. 1 INT returned for a TD, 3 tackles. On its face it seems odd to say defense was vital in a 45-38 shootout, but the Bobcat offense weren't the ones doing all the scoring for Ohio. Strong safety Lucas Key made only his second statsheet of the season but he made it count with a pick-six of Toledo QB Benjamin Hanson. The Michigan native's interception helped tip a see-saw game in Ohio's favor for their second straight victory over the Rockets and, Key hopes, springboards the Bobcats to a second straight MAC East crown. Special Teams Player of the Week: K Trent Michaels, C. Michigan. 2/2 FGs (made 42, 44), 4/4 XPs. This is not what Michaels envisioned when he joined the Chippewas out of a Minnesota junior college. CMU was arguably a missed kick or two away from competing for the MAC title last season, but they've fallen on hard times so far this year. Michaels hasn't had many chances to showcase his strong leg with only five field goals attempted, but at least he's perfect on them all. He easily drilled a pair of 40+ yard kicks in the Chips' 34-10 stomping of Northern Illinois, and if coach @johnkirk really has Central Michigan's season turned around then Michaels will have plenty more chances to show off his expanded range. Congratulations to all the winners!

  17. Offensive Player of the Week: (tie) QB Zack Cera, Miami(OH). 26 of 41 for 330 yards, 3 TD, 0 INT QB John Garland, Kent State. 22 of 33 for 291 yards, 3 TD, 1 INT, 4 rushes for 19 yards No sister-kissing here, both of these players will happily take the honors seeing as how their performances led to wins for their teams. Zack Cera showed once again how hard it is to cool off the FLAMETHROWER with one of his best statlines to date. Meanwhile, John Garland just will not die. The true junior pulled his team to victory against an Akron team quickly learning to despise seeing "Flashes" on the jerseys across from them, with his best passing performance of the season. Defensive Player of the Week: (tie) SS Thomas Gordon, Buffalo, 9 Tackles CB Kai Hatcher, Buffalo, 1 INT, 3 Tackles The Buffalo secondary did WORK against the pass-happy Bruins from Los Angeles. While the Bulls offense was quietly efficient as usual it was the play of the defense that gave Buffalo the win, especially thumper Thomas Gordon and semi-maligned CB Kai Hatcher. Gordon set the tone for any receiver coming across the middle, and Hatcher took advantage of the Bruin receivers' sudden case of alligator arms to snag one of two Steven Gore INTs on the day. Special Teams Player of the Week: K Eric Jarvis, Miami(OH). 3/4 FG (made 35, 39, 21 -- missed 51), 4/4 XP Hey look, a non-tie! The voters obviously didn't hold anything against Jarvis for his miss from waaaaay downtown, but they did like that he kicked two huge field goals in the fourth quarter to finally put Best!Miami ahead for good against Bowling Green. If you're startled at just how young he looks, it's because you probably haven't seen his photo before - this is his first-ever POTW award. (Also, maybe we needed his mom's permission first ) Congratulations to all the winners!

  19. Offensive Player of the Week: RB Nathaniel Ruff, Akron - 26 rushes for 140 yards, 2 TD The most-hyped MAC game in week 8 was also its most entertaining, as Akron and Best!Miami gave us two periods of bonus football. There were a lot of players who made it happen on both teams, but perhaps none were more determined and integral than Ruff. The redshirt senior junior had his best game of the season when the Zips needed it most, averaging nearly 5.4 yards per carry(!). If there's one thing the MAC is known for it's producing excellent running backs, and sometimes this causes players to not get as much attention as they should - this is Ruff's first-ever weekly award. Defensive Player of the Week: DT Marlon Bailey, Akron - 1 Sack, 5 Tackles A victory like Akron's isn't due solely to the offense, the Zips defense had to keep the FLAMETHROWER ZACK CERA in check. And the man to do that? "The Eater of Worlds" himself, Marlon Bailey. The big defensive tackle's consistent collapsing of the pocket made life very uncomfortable for Cera, but he's been terrorizing opposing offenses all season long; Bailey has 30 tackles and 4 sacks on the season. As a Defensive TACKLE. Not as an end, not as an OLB, as a DT. That's ridiculous. Special Teams Player of the Week: K Josh Booth, Akron - 3/3 FG (made 39, 24, 35), 4/4 XP A Sweep of the Weekly Awards by the Zips! That's what happens when you give us a fun and exciting game, I suppose. As all good things do it had to come to an end, and it somehow seems fitting that it ended on the left foot of Akron's senior kicker. Booth was perfect on the day, including the double-overtime game-winner, and he leads all MAC kickers in points scored this season (61) on the back of an impressive 15-of-16 FG conversion rate. Congratulations to all the Akron winners!

  21. Offensive Player of the Week: RB Gabe Ciamo, Toledo 23 rushes of 125 yards, 2 TDs (W at Ball State) How is this only his second-ever award? His backfield mate Benjamin Hanson and the Rockets passing attack has taken up a lot of the spotlight, but Gabe Ciamo has been consistently good ever since he stepped on the field for Toledo. Against a Ball State defense featuring daunting defensive tackles Isamaeli Afamasaga and Rashaad Malcolm, Ciamo still managed to average just over five yards per carry while doing the majority of the scoring. Even though he's only played five games so far, the redshirt sophomore is already on pace to rush for nearly 1400 yards during the regular season. Coach @deathcpo certainly wouldn't mind if Ciamo and Hanson play hot potato with this award throughout the year. Defensive Player of the Week: OLB Raymond Smith, Akron 2 Sacks, 7 Tackles (W vs. Utah) And on defense just as it was on offense, a teammate of last week's winner takes home the same award. This time it's outside linebacker Raymond Smith who was unleashed on an unsuspecting Mormon Lasercannon. Utah QB Donald Culver certainly got intimately acquainted with Smith, who sacked twice and knocked him down several more times - and then knocked down several other guys wearing Ute red and white. The sophomore from Greenville, Ohio nearly doubled his season tackle total in this game and considering he and Kameron McCall went back-to-back on defensive POTW, the Akron defense seems hell-bent to prove they're more than just "Marlon Bailey and the ten other guys." Special Teams Player of the Week: K Timmy Wilhelm, Ohio 3/3 (29, 26, 35), 3/3 XP (W vs. Miami(OH)) Timmay! Mr. Wilhelm decided to one-up the other players on this week's list. Instead of a teammate representing the school, he just decided to do it himself. Timmy was cool under pressure (and indeed his been all year, still not missing a kick) and earned his spot this week as the Bobcats beat the previously-undefeated Redhawks by... a field goal. This also marks his NINTH MAC POTW award; with this he surpasses Emmanuel Fields as the all-time leader in this accolade. Congratulations to all the winners!
  22. Vote! Which player best deserves your weekly accolades? (Yes, any and all non-MAC coaches are free to vote also)
  23. Offensive Player of the Week: QB Benjamin Hanson, Toledo 22 of 30 for 287 yards, 3 TD, 1 INT (W at Bowling Green) This kind of performance is starting to become old hat for the Toledo signal-caller; Hanson has shown up here three out of the four games he's played so far this season. It was good he played up to his usual standards, because the Rockets needed all that and then some to shake off a dogged Bowling Green squad. With an incredible 74.7% completion rate and a tidy 10/2 TD/INT ratio on the season, Hanson leads the MAC in QBR with a 180.53 rating and is key to Toledo's current and future aspirations. Defensive Player of the Week: ILB Kameron McCall, Akron 1 INT, 8 Tackles (W at Indiana) In contrast to Hanson's frequent visits to this list, this is McCall's first POTW award. But it doesn't mean that he was any less important to his team's victory against Big Ten Twelve Eleven Fourteen eleventybillion B1G member Indiana. McCall was cleaning up everywhere on the field while also picking off a pass for the undefeated Zips. McCall is one of the more unheralded players on Akron's defense, so good on him for stepping up and proving himself a vital member of their stop squad! Special Teams Player of the Week: K Timmy Wilhelm, Ohio 3/3 FGs (made 46, 27, 35), 2/2 XP (W vs. Western Kentucky) In contrast to the other two selections for this week's Players of the er, Week, this race was a complete shutout. No one in the third phase of the game had a more impressive day than Ohio's own Timmy Wilhelm. The senior stayed perfect on the year, including kicking a season-long 46-yarder among his three field goals. Perhaps even more impressive is that he tied MAC legend Emmanuel Fields for the most POTW awards in MAC history with eight. What a career Wilhelm has had with the Bobcats. Congratulations to all the winners!
  24. Vote!* Which player best deserves your weekly accolades? (Yes this includes any and all non-MAC coaches) RB Austin Laws, BST, 24 for 117 yards, 1 TD (W vs. CMU) QB Benjamin Hanson, TOL, 22 of 30 for 287 yards, 3 TD, 1 INT (W at BGSU) WR Justin Evans, TOL, 8 for 100 yards, 1 TD (W at BGSU) RB DeSean Madison, WMU, 23 for 110 yards, 2 TD (W at BUF) WR Charles Stevens, WMU, 4 for 80 yards, 1 TD (W at BUF) CB Levern White, TOL, 1 INT, 2 Tackles, 1 TD (W at BGSU) OLB Brandon Thomas, BGSU, 1.5 Sacks, 8 Tackles (L vs TOL) ILB Kameron McCall, AKR, 1 INT, 8 Tackles (W at IND) DT Marlon Bailey, AKR, 7 Tackles (W at IND) FS Omari Easley, BUF, 8 Tackles (L vs. WMU) K Timmy Wilhelm, OH, 3/3 (46, 27, 35), 2/2 XP P Eric Caudill, TOL, 40.3
  25. Offensive MAC Player of the Week: QB Zack Cera, Miami(OH) 30 of 45 for 335 yards, 4 TD, 1 INT (W vs. E. Michigan) It's kind of a surprise that this is the FLAMETHROWER ZACK CERA'S first time as the MAC's Offensive Player of the Week, considering his ability and Miami's scheme. But Cera certainly lit up the scoreboard and the Eagles for his third 300-yard game in four tries. With 1232 passing yards and a sparkling 13/3 TD/INT ratio through four games, we don't see him slowing down any time soon. We do see him likely showing up here again this season. Defensive MAC Player of the Week: SS Quinn Benson, Kent State 1 INT, 2 Tackles, 1 TD (W vs Bowling Green) A tight race between Benson and Miami CB Shamar McClendon with similar stats but Benson takes it, likely due to the importance of the pick-six to his game's outcome. The safety's touchdown sparked his team to an upset win over the visiting Falcons. The senior so far has been the linchpin of the Golden Flash defense, and Benson is doing everything he can to get Kent State to a bowl game. Special Teams MAC Player of the Week: K Harry DeMarco, 3/3 FG (made 47, 27, 34), 5/5 XP (W vs SDSU) Not to be outdone by Benson, WMU's kicker also makes his second appearance as a Player of the Week this season. The redshirt freshman remains perfect on the year, booting a career-long 47-yarder as one of three field goals DeMarco added to his tally. He also got a lot of practice from shorter distances with five extra points, the Broncos will need him to keep his excellent form against a tough foe in the Buffalo Bulls next week. Congratulations to all the winners!
