T-C-U BETTER BELIEVE IT

#3 TCU took on #5 LSU this weekend and let everyone know that the Horned Frogs are legit. It was a defensive struggle but TCU was able to come out on top 13-10.

THE BUC STOPS HERE

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers didn't give Christian Skaggs any break Sunday, sacking the QB 6 times. The offense did their part behind QB Taylor Heiden and rookie RB DeNorris Jackson and came away with a 28-21 win.

DREAM KILLERS?

A top 15 matchup between the #11 Toledo Rockets and #15 Florida Gators ended in heartbreak for the Rockets. Florida managed to pull out the 25-22 win on the road. Anyone doubting either team was put on notice.

CATCH ME IF YOU CAN

The Green Bay Packers have raced to a 5-0 start after beating the 2-2 Seattle Seahawks. This game was very banner worthy which is why it is on here. I wonder if anyone can "catch" the Green Bay Packers, or maybe "intercept" them? No no, definitely catch.

  5. Welcome All! I'm reviving this, albeit with a new conference. I found this to be an exciting way to watch recruiting unfold last season and I wanted to bring it back. We are on a break this weekend due to scheduling conflicts with Soluna, so we had some more time to process croots and I thought this was a good time to start this up. We are almost halfway through the recruiting season and things are flying by. We have 6 battles to look at. Note: A * indicates that team has a Red Box. Battles between MAC Schools and Out of Conference Opponents QB Gabe Baker 1/5 Pocket MI Teams in Play: *, * Why it's Important: Quarterback is undoubtedly the most important position on the team. A good Quarterback can carry a team unlike any other position. Both teams field older Quarterbacks and are looking for their next field general. Baker certainly looks like he can fill that role for either team. Who Will Win: . Western Michigan has 42 points and Michigan has 41. Both have pipelined Michigan. The only chance Michigan has at winning Baker now is if he had selected QB as a Team Need and Western Michigan had not. Both teams should probably be going all out on Baker now as he's the biggest battle either team likely has now. WR Jacob Kellogg 1/4 Target AL Teams in Play: *, * Why it's Important: Both teams have a complete lack of talent, Kellogg would be a huge get for either team. He's a guy who can get open on 3rd Downs and keep the offense on the field, which is important for both teams as they both have poor defenses. Kellogg probably shouldn't play immediately, but he could if one of these teams absolutely needed him to. Who Will Win: . Yes, Kent State has 29 points versus Troy's 16. But I've noticed Kent State is in battles all over the place and with Troy Pipelining Alabama, that advantage may be enough to overcome that point differential. ILB Eric Tuiasosopo 1/4 Will CA Teams in Play: *, * Why it's Important: See what I mean? Kent State has been aggressive this cycle and is all over the place trying to build their team. I fear they are stretching themselves too thin. Illinois has built it's team on defense and they now need to start replacing some of those guys and Tuiasosopo is the guy they want to do that with. Kent just needs talent. Who Will Win: . Sorry @TazerMan, Illinois has 42 points and with your other battles, I think you'll this one too. Might need to prioritize one over the other. Battles Between MAC Schools RB Alvin Hines 1.5/4.0 Speed OH Teams in Play: *, Why it's Important: Both teams have ran offenses predicated on the Running Game, and both will need to replace their Running Back soon. Hines fit into both teams' schemes and could be a good replacement for their current stars. Who Will Win: . It's hard to see Ohio make up the gap here, they trail by more than 5 and Toledo has 1 one more weekly point. Toledo is also pipelining Ohio while the Bobcats pipeline Michigan. Toledo has all the momentum here. OLB Paul Boykin 2/3.5 Blitz OH Teams in Play: *, Why it's Important: A 2/3.5 player can be a stop gap starter or a four year starter for a team who needs it. Ohio maybe doesn't, but Akron certainly does. He probably fits more into a 3-4 scheme, which Akron does not run currently, but maybe they're considering changing soon. Who Will Win: . Sorry Ohio, you have more battles than Akron does, and this would be a very nice get for the Zips. Ohio does have 7 more weekly points, but at this point I expect Ohio to focus on their other battles and that will allow Akron to swoop him up. QB Austin Iverson 1/3.5 Pocket OH Teams in Play: *, Why it's Important: With injuries coming back to CFBHC, depth is more important than ever. Iverson likely will never start for the Rockets out side of injury, but he could very well start for the Falcons. Toledo has already secured a commitment from QB Mario Pierre, so they're just looking to lock up a backup for him. Bowling Green is uncontested on two 1/3 QBs, but Iverson would be a much better get for them. Who Will Win: . If the Rockets want Iverson, they'll get him. They have 10 more points and lead by more than 5 currently. Bowling Green probably isn't desperate enough for Iverson to go all out and force Toledo to really battle for him.

  9. In Week 6, the Cardinals Football Team travels to Mount Pleasant, Michigan to take on the Central Michigan Chippewas. Both teams enter the contest at 2-2 Overall and 1-1 in the MAC. Tying them for 3rd in the West Division behind Toledo and Western Michigan. Ball State started out its season with 2 losses, 52-8 against Toledo and 38-13 against Navy. They then followed those up with 2 Wins, 30-22 against Buffalo and 28-17 against UAB. Central Michigan has started its season exactly the opposite; beating Southern Miss 35-31 and then Northern Illinois 14-7. Followed by losses against Ohio 29-23 and UTSA 21-17. Ball State's Offense has come to life the past two games after seeming non-existent in the first two contests. A large part of that is the running game is finally working. Austin Laws rushed for 121 yards on 38 carries against Toledo and Navy combined. Since then he has added 250 yards on 50 carries. He wasn't able to find the end zone at all initially, but has scored 3 times over the past two games. Elias Carter is also getting in on the action with 60 yards on 10 carries and 2 Touchdown himself over that same span. Speaking of Carter, his passing has improved as well. He completed 50% of his passes and threw 3 Interceptions to 2 Touchdowns in the first two games, but has completed 66% and has thrown 2 Touchdowns versus 1 Interception since. That may not seem like a lot, but Ball State's 3rd Down Conversion % has improved from 11.5% to 47.6%, and that matters a lot for an offense predicated on ball control. Senior Wide Receiver Jayson Zarate-Lima leads the team with 222 receiving yards while Freshman Tight End Steven Moya leads the team with 16 receptions and 2 Touchdowns. Highly rated Freshman Wide Receiver Sebastian Amato has had trouble cementing himself in the rotation, catching only 5 passes for 78 yards in 4 games. The Defense has struggled to force turnovers, creating only 2 on the season. Both Interceptions, one from DeAndre Simms and the other from Eddie McGill. Christian Mosley, Isamaeli Afamasaga, and Rashaad Malcolm each have 2 Sacks on the season. Darren Boykin leads the team in tackles with 16. Freshman Quarterback Byron Suggs has really lead the Chippewa Offense, passing for 896 yards and rushing for 139 yards. He's actually the team's leading rusher. Running Back Makai Carr has struggled with the ball this season, rushing 129 yards on 49 carries, good for a 2.63 YPC. He's only found the End Zone once on the season. He's also the only player in the match-up dealing with an injury. He Sprained his ankle against Southern Miss and missed the Northern Illinois game. He's not fully healthy yet, but team doctors say he's probably about 90% back. Freshman Wide Receiver Joseph Aikman has impressed as well, catching 17 passes for 225 yards with 3 scores. Junior Tight End Jasper Rowley leads the team with 234 receiving yards. This duo gives Byron Suggs a real 1-2 threat on the field. Aikman on the outside, and Rowley over the middle. The Chippewa defense has forced 8 Turnovers, 7 Interceptions and 1 Fumble. Junior Cornerback leads the team with 3 Interceptions. Junior Defensive End Rory Bolin leads the team with 3 sacks and Senior Inside Linebacker Dwayne Boone leads the team with 11 tackles. Ball State has not a ton of success in the MAC, or in CFBHC really. But one of the teams they've found some success against is Central Michigan. The Cardinals are 3-2 All-Time against the Chips, with wins coming in 2016, 2017, & 2020; and the losses in 2018 & 2019. The Cards have outscored them 99-75. Positional Match-Ups: Quarterback: Edge: Although Elias "The Drifter" Carter has improved his play recently, Byron Suggs has outperformed him in every metric. Suggs has also been far more consistent and reliable for the Chips. Central Michigan really relies on Suggs to lead the offense while Ball State tends to rely on the Running Back more than the Quarterback. Hopefully we'll see Carter's play continue to improve, but we have to believe that Suggs will be the better Quarterback in this game. Running Back: Edge: Austin Laws has 3 1,000 yard seasons and is well on his way to a 4th. He also has a 4.22 YPC this season while Makai Carr sports a 2.63 YPC. Laws is perfectly healthy, while Carr is still dealing with a Sprained Ankle. Laws is the face of the Ball State offense, while Carr is maybe the 4th Face of the CMU offense. Look for Laws to easily win this match-up. Wide Receiver/Tight End: Edge: Push Ball State sports a 4 year starter and a 3 year starter at Wide Receiver alongside a highly touted freshman Wide Receiver. At Tight End, they have a 5 Star Freshman leading the team in receptions and yards. Central Michigan has a very good freshman Wide Receiver, with some forgettable faces behind him. They do have Jasper Rowley, who is probably the best of the WRs/TEs in this game. Ball State sports better depth while Central Michigan has starters making a little bit bigger of an impact. To us, there is no clear edge here for either side. Offensive Line: Edge: Central Michigan has an average OL Rating of 4.98 while Ball State has an average of 4.68. Not a huge difference, but for two teams who want to run, .3 points could mean a conversion on 3rd and 2 one way but not the other. Ball State has the best individual player on the Line with OT Aiden Hammer, who will play in the NFLHC next season. But Central Michigan's OL has a better rating at virtually every other position, and unfortunately Hammer can't make up that whole difference by himself. Defensive Line: Edge: Ball State very well might have the 2nd or 3rd best Defensive Line in the Conference (shout out to Akron and Toledo). The Twin Towers, Rashaad Malcolm and Isamaeli Afamasaga have tortured MAC Offenses for years, and this year is their Swan Song. They have combined for 4 sacks and 2 TFL. Don't forget Defensive End Christian Mosley who also has 2 Sacks himself and you have three guys on that line who can get after the Quarterback and disrupt the run. For Central Michigan, Defensive Ends Rory Bolin and Nazir Tatum-Kimbrough have combined for 5 sacks, while Defensive Tackles Jabari Hardy and Ajani Goodson have not been able to make a real impact yet. Central Michigan gets good play out of its Ends, but Ball State gets good play out of everyone, giving them the edge. Linebackers: Edge: Inside Linebacker Darren Boykin may end his Ball State career as the All-Time leading tackler, but he sometimes doesn't get much help. Although Outside Linebacker Tyler Huntley has 7 Tackles, 0.5 Sacks, and 1 TFL, Outside Linebacker Frank Long has not made an impact yet. Mike Linebacker Jon Carpenter has a sack himself, it does really depend on Darren Boykin to lead the LB Crew from his Will Position. Central Michigan's Inside Linebackers, Dwayne Boone and Bryce Sewell, have combined for 19 Tackles, 2 Interceptions, 0.5 Sacks, and 1 Fumble Recovered. Together they have really held down the middle of the Chips Defense and made it a "No-Fly Zone". Secondary: Edge: Ball State has two Pro-Caliber (although only one starts) in its secondary while Central Michigan has 0. That talent disparity is clear, especially from the safety position. FS Eddie McGill is coming off of a All-MAC year and has continued his play this season, getting an Interception. Central Michigan plays a Man Cornerback Scheme, which leads itself to more Interceptions, but has a tendency to get burned. While Ball State plays a Zone scheme, which tends to keep the ball in front of them and not allow the huge plays. This edge isn't very big, but it's enough to give it to Ball State. Special Teams: Edge: Kicker Kenneth Godfrey has made 62.5% of his Field Goals (5 for 8) for the Cards while James Bragg has made just 40% (4 for 10) of his. Godfrey has shown himself to be significantly more reliable than Bragg. Ari Bright has averaged 38.13 yards per punt for Ball State while Shane Bailey has averaged 38.33 yards for Central Michigan. The Kicking is really where this goes Ball State's way here. Count: : 4 : 3 Push: Final Prediction: This is the first match-up between the coaches. npklemm is in his 9th season overall, but first at Ball State. @johnkirk is in his second season, both at Central Michigan. Although there's a gap in experience, Coach johnkirk has shown that he knows what he's doing and is never out-coached. The difference in this game really comes down to 2 Keys. First, can Byron Suggs carry his team? Second, can the Ball State rushing attack maintain its momentum? We think Suggs will have a good game. He has completed less than 60% of his passes, but he's thrown for more touchdowns and his ability to use his legs to kill teams (I mean, he leads the team in rushing) shows he's a true Dual-Threat. Ball State doesn't sport a shutdown defense by any means. It will be important for the Cards that The Twin Towers get in the backfield early and often, if they can put Suggs off of his rhythm early, Central Michigan might be in for a long day. Central Michigan's Front-7 does do a fairly good job against the run, holding teams under 4.6 Yards Per Carry and only allowing 3 Touchdowns on the ground. In fact, no opposing player has rushed for more than 100 yards against the Chips. But, they haven't faced a Running Back of Laws's ability nor a team who really wants to run the ball all game long. We don't think the Chips defense can contain Laws and Carter all game long and eventually those two will get loose. Ball State 31 Central Michigan 27 History is on Ball State's side, and they have the more experienced team. Central Michigan is definitely on the rise, but this won't be the year they tie up the All-Time Series.

I don't see the fight ending that way. I think DC gets him on the ground, and either pounds him out or submits him. I'm also excited to see Gleison Tibau fight again. Hope he tests clean.
