Calling New Washington "tiny" doesn't do it justice. It is as small of a small town as you'll ever find. Probably 3/4 of the town are related in some fashion. Oh, and the nickname is Dutchtown. For those unfamiliar with that part of north central Ohio, New Washington is in the northern part of Crawford County (Bucyrus is the county seat). It also happens to be the county I'm from (I live in Columbus now), so I was already familiar with Loy and his career at Buckeye Central.

So why didn't all that help us at Kent State? The point is that this team was headed to a bottom of the MAC finish until they surprisingly defeated their arch rival last weekend. It was a emotional, great, long over due victory for BG in that rivalry. It was a great step in the right direction for the program and this coaching staff.

Now if we come out and crap down our leg the rest of this season against our remaining MAC opponents. I'll still have questions about this coaching staff. I think you have to give a coach at least 3 years to implement his system with his players. I am anxious to see if this will be a catapult moment for this program and this coaching staff, or will it be a lightning-in-a-bottle flash.

I do feel more optimistic today than I felt a week ago.

You contradict yourself in this post. You'll have questions about the coaching staff, while allowing them three years to get their players in? This coaching staff walked into a disaster. 67 scholarship players, 18 less than the max of 85. Incumbent starting QB bolted after spring ball. Transfer QB who won the job out of camp had his waiver denied. Lack of skill at playmaking positions. The list goes on and on. This staff should and will be afforded every opportunity to get this on the right path.

You’re allowed to question the staff after getting blown out 4 straight weeks.
It is understandable to lose if the situation is truly as bad as the sports info department and coaching staff put out on weekly basis. I don’t doubt we’re short handed on talent and depth, but we should still be competitive especially in conference play. If the team backs up last week with another competitive performance, it’ll be a good sign. If CMU rolls in a thumps us, I’ll continue to be a little skeptical.

I said it someplace else, for a team like BG that has not experienced much success, the highs are relatively higher so the coaching staff has their hands full not allowing the team to experience a letdown. Loeffler in the post game conference was all about focusing like this from now on as opposed to celebrating the win, so he knows what challenge lies ahead.

My personal thought is that no matter how hard the coaches worked this week, this is still a young team that has not experienced exuberance. I am not expecting another top level effort this week. I expect we will see some other great efforts yet this season but not this one, which I think will be a learning experience. Just my uneducated guess and I hope I'm wrong.

As we get into the second half of the season, the coaches can now start playing some freshmen here and there without burning the redshirt. I think that could be very helpful on a thin team like ours.

Unless Loy completely bombs today...I'll be shocked to see anything of Wade outside of mop up duty. It's Loy's team now

CMU has the #1 rush defense in the MAC.

We'll see if we can move the ball today. Hoping for the best.

To open the game, Central Michigan marches 75 yards in 3:07 and goes up 7-0. Defense seemed out of sorts there.

Clair did not start, and RB Davon Jones just got injured at midfield - carted off. Feel awful for the kid, hope he's okay.

We're forcing plenty of third downs, but we aren't winning those downs like we were last week.

Of course, I said this before a crazy stand happened.

CMU had 2nd and goal from the 2 and could not score. On 4th down, they went for it. Kholbe Coleman forced a fumble and Caleb Biggers returned it 100 yards for a touchdown.

Tie game, 7-7.

Wow, what a huge break on the fumble. Should be 14-0 and instead we get a reprieve and get to start over all square. Hopefully, that will wake us up. This team today doesn't resemble the one from last week, so far.

Jordan Anderson is a heck of a player, and he's only a freshman. He'll be a huge piece at safety for years to come.

No real pass rush so far today. Need them to pick it up.

We also just aren't tackling, for some reason. Trying to push guys over instead of wrapping up.
