Like many of you, I was enjoying MACtion last night. I had just finished watching the Ohio University “Fightin’ Frankies” defeat Akron and a this graphic came up.

That’s a lot of good games that will not be played this weekend. I’m not going to get into this too much because I know we all have our opinions on this.

All I am going to say is enjoy what we have. There is football this week and weekend. Watch what you can. I hope we will get more as the season progresses. But you never know. Enjoy the games that get played like the players will. They know as well as we do that it might be the last for awhile.
