Ohio U was lucky if they won one or two games per season before Solich showed up. Dude is working miracles at that place.

Solich is a solid coach and a derned fine man

not sure he was going to win conference championships at UNL, he hasn't won too many MAC championships
Frank prolly would have been much better than the circus that followed - that was some tough sledding for the Bug Eaters

Is it a bad job?  I would think Ohio would be one of the better MAC jobs.
You’d think, but for some reason no. Between 1977 and Solich’s arrival, they went 96-109. They had five winning seasons, an 8-3, a 7-4 and three 6-5s.
Grobe went 33-33 with the 8-3, 7-4 and one 6-6 and got Wake Forest. Outside him, one coach was 31-34-1 and the next best was 11-35.

EDIT: That should be 96-209

The previous coach said it was nearly impossible to convince urban players to play in the hills of southeast Ohio.

Weird. Athens is probably the most fun MAC campus.  Apples to apples I'd probably go there if I had offers from all the MAC schools

It is definitely my favorite part of the state. I'm not an urban football player though.

Went Deer Hunting down in that area a couple of times.Kids were out for the holidays so the town was kind of quiet - beautiful country though

A pair of games today that I would actually like to watch, both taking place during the work day.

Daytime sports are one of the best parts of these couple weeks.  There is less basketball than I would have thought, but seemingly a bowl game every day at 1.  FIU-Toledo is near the bottom of my interest list, but BYU-WMU, I might tune in there.

Watching the Blue Potato Field Bowl from Boise. Outside of Boise State (obviously) BYU is the most followed team in Idaho, and it's not at all a long drive for the critical mass of BYU fans in SLC & Provo. So maybe, yeah, the matchup is bad, but the Potato Bowl wins by getting a fanbase who'll show up. Reminds me of the Arizona bowl "winning" by getting New Mexico State last year, a fanbase more than excited to make the 4 hour drive to Tucson. Meanwhile, how does the Independence Bowl expect any fans for their Temple Vs Duke matchup?

Looks like Toledo blew it. Didn't get to see the game obviously.

toledo got robbed by the refs on a 4th down spot with about 3 minutes left in the game

not saying they would have tied it up with a FG or won it with a TD, but they would have had decent field position at their own 32 and enough time
