Hey, we're extreme.
This been well back everybody to take three of a live stream.
We got to take one pretty well heading on our new moral dogs.
Yeah, well, welcome back to the Mac preview show presented to buy the Smith and Sidle Show, the Bowling Green Radio sports organization and the bowling Green Falcon Media, all working together and on this group, we just got through Ball State on our little bit of coverage. Zack Smith.
Jacob sidled down to the bottom, right.
If our all of our screens there still are, they're all the same.
Yeah, they should be.
OK, so Jacob, settle down in the bottom, right? My co host for the Smith and Sidle Show, we're joined by Reese Land and Alexander Rally.
Who's up in the top? Right? And Charlie Ryan, who? I think we have over the phone right now.
No, we did not right now.
Well, Charlie Ryan is having a bit of tell me Kinky's, but can you hear this? Bye.
Can you hear that? Yes.
Little bit. Very soft.
Um anyway well, well, we've got everybody.
We'll get Charlie back in here.
Um, but we left off on the Ohio University Bobcats before cycles.
What can you tell us about this OU Bobcats team? Oh, here's the thing about the OU Bobcats.
Did it stay? Are we still going? We're still going. Keep going.
I just wanted to make sure head coach Frank Solich always has a team that can compete in half.
And I have the opportunity to interview him a few years ago, along with a few other a few of his at the Mid American Conference Media Day.
And he's a a really great guy on.
He knows how to coach football.
He's been coaching this team for a long time now.
He's the all time leader in wins at Ohio University, and he knows what to dio.
The biggest thing is redshirt junior quarterback Drew Keisel Kessel.
It's K E S E I presidential, uh, he's gonna have some big shoes to fill after the graduation of Nathan Rourke, who was a Canadian quarterback playing American football.
Uh, Rourke was really good.
Up until last year, Ohio is the only team to win a bowl game from the Mac in like five years, I think.
And they won like two of them.
Eso a lot of big used to fill their, uh, they have.
They have another dynamic duo in Ocean.
Alison, a redshirt sop****re and senior Damonte Tuggle running the ball.
And that's really gonna be there.
Big bread and butter type thing.
Their defense is always solid.
I don't know what they put in the water down in southeast Ohio, but they always get some big boys on that defensive line.
You can consider them there one of those power five teams that plays in a group of five conference of small team like a smaller school.
But they can compete with the big boys every few years.
Um, really, I have their only losses to Miami and Central Michigan.
Miami is a big rivalry game.
They're bringing a lot of people back, and I think they're gonna win that game.
They're gonna be too much to handle.
They're going to get big wins against, uh, Akron.
And I think Kent, I don't I know Reese.
You said Kent State's quarterback is might be the best in the league, and I agree with that.
I just don't think he can hang on to beat Ohio.
Um, out of in bowling green are also gonna be tough games.
I think they're gonna be close games.
Um, I think you be is gonna be probably one or two score game.
Um, sorry, I just got a text bowling green.
I think it's gonna be close until, like, midway through the third quarter.
And then I think Frank Soldiers team is getting kind of surge late, and it's gonna end up.
Not being is close.
I'm impressed with what the Lion Bobcats can do it year in, year out, especially playing at their home stadium, which I don't know if you've ever been down there.
It's almost like a mini version of the Horseshoe without the South stands.
Um, my, my one really big impact player for them is wide receiver Cameron owed him.
He's been with this program for a while now, and he's done a really good job year in, year out while he's been there, have been one of their top receivers, and I am excited to see what he could do this season.
So after looking at everything as in terms of, you know, when laws, projections, bowl eligibility.
You mentioned how good that Matt are.
The OU Bobcats are of bringing in good defensive linemen.
Uh, do you see that this OU team is gonna be based primarily on their defense? Or do you see Mawr oven offensive feel coming out of this team? I think it's gonna be a big like they're gonna try to play with their defense, mostly try to win games that way.
Um, we'll see what happens.
I really like the OU defense.
I think they're the strongest defense in the minimum.
Their offense, I think, has a little way to go after losing quarterback like Nathan Rourke.
But this is gonna be a really good This is gonna be a fun team to watch an athlete.
I think a lot of these teams in the Mac this year have a lot of potential.
It's just they're gonna be running into each other.
The more research that I've I've done on all of these teams, and the more that I sit here and listen to the research that everybody else has done, there's a lot to look forward to in the Mac this year.
Um, it came as a shock to me that they cancel that the Max season got shut down as early as it did.
But it was kind of cool to see how everything is shaped up.
And it's really good to know that they're back and they're back to doom or, um, some more football this year.
It just wasn't the same without the Mac in play.
And now that we get to see what this team and all these teams are gonna be able to do is gonna be a lot of fun to watch.
So with that, do Thio us working on trying to get Charlie Ryan back in here, we're gonna jump over two teams.
So really quick.
Were the Miami RedHawks in the University of Toledo Rockets will be getting to those in a, uh, first in the West.
Alex, you have the chip allies, didn't you? Yes, they did.
So what do you expect out of them this year? Do they? Are they gonna finish first? Well, um I would have said yes, but that was before I realized that they weren't gonna have their quarterback.
So David, more so.
It really if they named the starter, Daniel Richardson.
But he's a freshman and he doesn't have any staff.
Well, um, it all comes down.
Probably all comes down to how well he plays, but there's still favored to win every game.
I don't know if that's factored in yet, but, uh, as of knowledge so favorite to win every game Last year they scored 32 points a game.
They in 2017 2018.
They were one and 11 and the only victory was against Maine.
But then last year, they made it all the way to the Mac championship game, losing the Miami.
Then they lost the standard go stay in the ballgame.
But, um, we're also losing one of their running back who signed with the Arizona Cardinals.
But Kobe Lewis is their main running back.
He had 1000 over 1000 North last year and 12 touchdowns, So with a new quarterback, he'd have to step up still and they bring back all through their top receivers.
Um, one had 900 yards, one had 800 yards and one had 700.
That'd be Templeton course solvent and Tyrone Scott.
Hey, real quick, Charlie, can you hear us doesn't look like it.
I was launched looking in the chat, and it seemed that he might be joining, or it might have been able to get in.
Yeah, well, anyway, let's go back to Alex here for a second.
So, um, a true freshman quarterback.
You said the starting right? Or was it just a freshman? It doesn't say back on the punk, his bio.
But hey has never played so So I'm imagining it's It's a true freshman quarterback.
So the way that you get rookies your true freshman, you know, quarterbacks taken on it's usually about applying pressure.
How do you think this old line is gonna be ableto handle everything? Well, I feel like they should do a good job just because, Oh, the run game always opens up the past game.
But at the same time, if you always know that you're gonna path, then you're not gonna get that.
You're not that you're If you always know that you're gonna run, then your run game is going to get open.
I feel that that leads to you're gonna have a lot more bliss is than if you're running.
Game isn't working.
So I guess we'll just have to wait and see how the season, Progressive.
Charlie Ryan, can you hear us? Can you hear me? Yeah, you're a little quiet, but I can hear you.
Yeah, if I can fix much other.
Why Try moving that microphone closer to your mouth a little bit.
Yeah, it's a it works for what we need.
Um, Alex, do you see this Cipla's team as a bowl team without their starting quarterback and making it be a freshman.
Do you see them still as a bowl eligible team? Well, looking at their schedule, they're still favored in all of their games.
So I would still see them as a potential bowl eligible teams.
Charlie, when you're moving your headset, we're here in the Mike Russell.
No, no, I'm I mean, I can hear it when you're moving your Yeah.
We'll figure it out.
Do you have? Ah, potential record ****ysis potential.
Okay, we're going to go with Can you hear me? Okay.
I was gonna go a six and a because their favorite and all of their match up
