  2. 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!

  4. 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!
  5. 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
  6. 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!
  7. Phew, you needed to really ball out to be nominated for POTW honors this week! When neither a 20 of 25 for 250 yards, 3 TD passing performance nor a 129 rushing yards, 2 TD. 5.61 YPC game can't make the list, it's a pretty damn high quality list. So vote! Which player best deserves your weekly accolades?
  8. Offensive MAC Player of the Week: QB Benjamin Hanson, Toledo 20 of 26 for 255 yards, 3 TD, 0 INT (W vs. Old Dominion) Hanson goes back-to-back with this award on the heels of a uber-efficient statline. A 76 percent completion rate and 9.81 passing yards per attempt are just the cherries on top of that already pretty 3/0 TD/INT QB sundae. Toledo will give someone else a chance to win this award next week with a bye before starting into the conference portion of their schedule, but we can likely expect to see Mr. Hanson's name in consideration for this award a few more times this year. Defensive MAC Player of the Week: CB Sean Taylor, W. Michigan 1 INT, 3 Tackles, 1 TD (W at Navy) Welcome back, Mr. Taylor! After being invisible the first two games of the season, the Broncos' star cornerback made his presence felt in a big way, picking off a pass from Navy QB Isaiah Best and taking it all the way back for a pick-six in WMU's 24-13 win. As noted by @Bubada shortly after the game, half of Taylor's 12 career interceptions have gone the other way for a touchdown. He is truly an electrifying player on the field. Special Teams MAC Player of the Week: K Josh Booth, Akron 4/4 FG (made 38, 28, 31, 42), 3/3 XP Akron's senior placekicker had himself a heck of a game on Thursday. Kicking ain't easy but Booth made it seem that way, drilling the ball perfectly on all four of his field goal tries. Add in his three extra points and he almost matched UTEP's point total all by himself! (UTEP 17, Booth 15) He and his leg get a well-earned rest this week. Congratulations to all the winners!
  9. Whoopsadoodle, forgot to post the Week 3 Player of the Week winners: MAC Offensive Players of the Week: QB Benjamin Hanson, Toledo, 19 of 25 for 250 yards, 3 TD, 0 INT (W vs. Memphis) RB Owen Walton, Ohio, 22 rushes for 102 yards, 2 TD (W at Buffalo) MAC Defensive Player of the Week: OLB Brandon Thomas, Bowling Green, 2 Sacks, 7 Tackles (W vs. E. Carolina) MAC Special Team Player of the Week: K Timmy Wilhelm, Ohio, 1/1 FG (made 43), 4/4 XP (W at Buffalo) No writeups this week, sorry. But onward and upward. Which player best deserves your weekly accolades?

  11. Offensive MAC Player of the Week: QB T.J. Zamora, Akron. 18 of 24 for 230 yards, 2 TD, 0 INT, 6 rushes for 55 yards. The Zips are sitting pretty atop the MAC East division, and Zamora is a big reason why. Against the strong Bowling Green front seven, he put up perhaps one of his best statlines ever. The biggest question with Zamora was always his consistency, not his talent. If he can continue to put up numbers similar to these (check out that 75% completion rate!), Akron will contend for the MAC East title. Defensive MAC Players of the Week: DE Connor Borden, W. Michigan. 1.5 Sacks, 4 Tackles SS Quinn Benson, Kent State. 11 Tackles Connor Borden did yeoman's work while trying to hold wunderkind Duke QB Bryce Thompson in check. The Ohio native did a fantastic job collapsing the pocket while not allowing rushing lanes, greatly limiting Thompson's mobility (only 5 carries for 16 yards). He even got to the QB a few times while he was at it, giving him his first-ever PotW honors. Kent State's best defensive player looked like it Saurday afternoon, putting in serious work against the Boilermakers. Benson showed that he was more than capable of cleaning up all the way from the back, often meeting Purdue RB Brendan Milton at the second level while doing his best to clear his area of wide receivers and tight ends. Special Teams MAC Player of the Week: K Harry DeMarco, W. Michigan. 3/3 FG (made 29, 27, 40), 3/3 XP. The Broncos fell to the Blue Devils in double overtime, but you can't blame it on DeMarco - he did all he could to prevent that outcome. His perfect accuracy on the day pushed him ahead of the other nominees in this week's special teams race. Congratulations to all the winners!
  12. Neal Davis: Good morning and welcome back to 94.1 WIP radio. Today we have a very polarizing guest joining us on the show. Fresh off of his debut it the purple and silver we have the man, the myth, the legend despite only playing in 1 game so far: QB Rahim Murrell. Welcome to the show Rahim. Rahim Murrell: Glad to be here Neal. Neal: So Rahim, some people would call your offseason a little turbulent. First you were snubbed by Missouri coach @vtgorilla. Then you transfer to Kansas State and compete with the incumbent QB Julius Minnow. Coach HAFFnHAFF announces that you will be taking the first team reps in the spring game, and then the day of the game the Players Tribune publishes an article that you wrote declaring that you are the greatest. Then you go out and implode during the spring game, and rather than flying under the radar you double down with yet another Players Tribune article the next day. Give us some insight into what was going through your head during that time. Rahim: I think the articles spelled it out pretty well. I never second guess myself. I know that if I am given the chance I can sling the rock with anybody out there. The hate that fans spew towards me just fuels me. People say never to read your own press. Well I read every article written after the spring game and I hung them up in my locker and in my dorm room. I recorded the ESPN segment and watched it everyday before practice. I listened to every radio show, including this one, saying I wasn't good enough. And I knew I would prove them wrong. Neal: So Thursday night you finally get that opportunity. And you step up to the plate and deliver, leading your offense to 44 points. That is the most points scored by a Kansas State team since week 11 of the 2016 season. 20 for 29 passing for 309 yards and 3 TDs. You were named player of the game, deservedly so. How did it feel to get that monkey off your back? Rahim: Well first of all, the monkey isn't off my back. I didn't come here to beat FAU. No disrespect to them and their program, but this win does nothing for me. This season is about the next game, and the next game, and the next one after that. This season is about a bowl game and national recognition. This season is about proving to the world that I'm better the Tucker Dowden. So did it feel good to play well? Yeah. But there is always a chip on my shoulder. Neal: Reports came out after the game, that you had a verbal altercation with members of the offensive line during halftime. What happened in that room? Rahim: Verbal altercation? Is that what they are calling it? That was nothin' man. Just motivating the boys to tighten up that protection up front. Neal: My sources say that it was a little more thanthen that. Allegedly it was nothing short of a shouting match between you and senior offensive lineman Abraham Swift. Are you concerned that there will be a fall out between you and other, how do I say this, less vocal members of the team? Rahim: It is what it is man. It is what it is. At the end of the day I don't care if any person in that locker room likes me. But they will respect me and go to battle with me. And they won't respect me because I tell them to. That ain't what it is about. They will respect me because I bust my ass every day in practice and on game day I leave nothing on the field. I breathe this game. I live this game. I bleed this game. So they don't have to like me, but I can promise you one thing: they sure as hell will run into battle with me. Neal: What do you guys need to work on heading into week 3 as you look to Central Michigan? Rahim: I think that is fairly obvious. Our defense has to play better. We can't give up 41 points to FAU and do what we want to do. They gotta put more pressure on the QB and get him off his game. Then our O-line has to step up. I was running for my life and throwing off my back foot all game. I Couldn't get comfortable in the pocket. They gotta set that clean pocket for me and let me do my thing, and they gotta open up more holes for Elijah [Humphrey]. He did a great job with the small holes he was given, but we gotta help him out more, and that all starts up front. Neal: Well I wish you guys all the luck in the world next week, and I'm looking forward to seeing what you have in store for an encore. Congratulations again on being named player of the game and thanks for coming on the show! Rahim: Thanks for having me. I know y'all weren't expecting me to be getting interviewed as a player of the week. I'm planning to be back around here a lot this season and continue to prove you guys wrong about me.
