    That's four straight!

    Four straight losses for the Central Michigan team.

    Seems like the bad luck carried over from last season...tonight the Chippewas lost to Arizona 27-17.

    Key Moments Of The Game:
    - Andrew Aguila missed two kicks from about 30 yards out.
    - Beginning of 4th Q: Fumbled Punt Returned for TD
    - Arizona's defense ended the game with 10 sacks
    - Arizona was able to man up all game against an inferior team

    TEAM 1st 2nd 3rd 4th OT FINAL
    CMU 7 0 7 3 - 17
    ARIZ 3 7 7 10 - 27


    1st Half
    Arizona chose to start the season off with the ball in their hands. The chippewas were able to force them to a long field goal attempt that they would ultimately fall short on.

    On Central Michigan's first drive, they eased their way down the field, but would also fall short on a field goal attempt that would later cost them.

    The Chippewas were able to get on the board with a 7 yard rush on 4th and 1 to make the score 7-3 in favor of CMU.

    Early on in the second quarter, Arizona's qaurterback Nick Foles would find Terrell Turner all alone for an 18 yard TD reception.

    Half time: Arizona 10 Central Michigan 7

    2nd Half
    Central Michigan was able to down a punt inside the five yard line, but on the next play Arizona was able to find the halfback for a 28 yard reception. Three plays later Devin Veal would race to the endzone on a 64 yard scamper.

    Central Michigan was able to do a good job for the most part of "answering back", and on their next drive they accumelated a few big plays until Dan LeFevour was able to hit Bryan Anderson on a 21 yard strike for a TD.
    Arizona 17 Central Michigan 14

    In the beginning of the fourth quarter the Chippewas forced Arizona to a punt, and as Coach K began to think to himself that this was the most critical drive of the game....the ball was fumbled and returned for a TD. This play brought the lead back up to 10 for Arizona, and basically gave them the win. Coach K had this to say about the play, "It's unfortunate for a game to be decided on a play like that. But ultimately, we had plenty of other oppurtunities. If Aguila would've hit those chip shots earlier in the game we would've been up three, looking to run the clock out and not looking to make a big play."

    Central Michigan was able to add a field goal, but the defense just couldn't get Arizona off the field as they ran the clock down to double-zeros.​

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Press Conference -

    Media - "Coach K, what are your thoughts on that final play?"
    Coach K - "That is absolute disrespect! You don't kick a FG when you can just let the clock run out and the game is basically over. You can be SURE we will get these guys back in the future. We won't forget this incident!"

    Media - "Coach, what can you take from this game"
    Coach K - "Well, we are going to have serious thoughts about who should be our kicker. That cost us the game tonight. Also, our offensive linemen need to give Dan more time in the pocket. 10 sacks!!!! That is completely unacceptable!

    Finally! Central Michigan is back to their winning ways, and what better way to get back on a winning streak then by beating inner state rival - Michigan State!

    Key Moments Of The Game:
    - OLB Hissong returns interception 96 yards for a TD in the 1st quarter.
    - 38 yard TD pass to Bryan Anderson towards the end of the half.
    - Central Michigan's defense played "bend don't break" all night, and it proved to be effective.
    - CMU forced to interceptions in the redzone.

    TEAM 1st 2nd 3rd 4th OT FINAL
    CMU 14 7 14 7 - 42
    MSU 0 0 0 14 - 14


    1st Half
    Central Michigan chose to kick the ball deep to start out the game, and soon after forced a 3 and out. Central Michigan would score on a 13 yard run by Antonio Brown via the "Wild Chip" formation.

    On Michigan State's ensuing drive, Cousins threw a jump ball towards the endzone which would ultimately be picked off and returned for a 96 yard TD. This proved to be a backbreaker for Michigan State, as they just couldn't move the ball consistantly for the rest of the game.

    Dan LeFevour would hook up with Bryan Anderson as he broke away from the secondary, 38 yard TD reception.

    Half time: Central Michigan 21 Michigan St 0

    2nd Half
    In the second half, Central Michigan was successfully able to control the clock and secure the win.

    Dan LeFevour and Antonio Brown were both able to punch it in from short distances in the third quarter giving Central Michigan the oppurtunity to put in some backups.

    Michigan St was able to gain some respect as they would score twice in the fourth quarter on a 6 yard pass to Cunningham and an 18 yard pass to Smith.

    LeFevour suffered an injury to his shoulder, and got banged up a little on a different play but he said he will be good to go next week.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Press Conference -

    Media - "Coach K, how is this game going to impact the rest of your season?
    Coach K - "This game is absolutely huge. If we lose this one, our team energy goes way down. It's good that we were able to split our two big non conference games, ultimately we would've liked to win both, but this is giong to pay dividends come conference play."

    Media - "Coach, what exactly happened to Dan LeFevour on that play in the 3rd quarter?"
    Coach K - "Uh...he told me he tweaked his non throwing shoulder. He'll be fine. He will get limited playing time next week against our FCS opponent. We will definately need him week 4 against Coach Mors and Akron.

    Central Michigan vs Akron (morsdraconis)

    Akron 2-1 @ Central Michigan 2-1​

    Kelly Shorts Stadium - Mount Pleasant, Michigan
    July 30th (Thursday) - 9:45 pm Central



    This is an absolutely huge game for the MAC conference. Central Michigan is expected to have another great season, but a bump in the road, and that "bump" being the Akron Zips, could set them back and keep them out of MAC championship contention!

    Both teams have two straight wins since their week 1 losses to at #5 Penn State (Akron) and at Arizona (Central Michigan). Both teams have been playing very well as of late, in fact, Akron was able to shut out Indiana 38-0 last week!

    For Central Michigan, this game is a must-win, they have 5 inner conference user games. A win tonight will raise their confidence level heading into undefeated Buffalo (NewbSlice) the next week.


    Players to keep an eye on -

    [​IMG]

    For Central Michigan, Senior quarterback #13 Dan LeFevour. He is 25-41 for 443 yards and 4 touchdowns, while at the same time rushing for 200 yards and two touchdowns.​

    other players: WR #7 Bryan Anderson (Sr), WR #27 Antonio Brown (Jr), SS #44 Zach Benke (Jr)




    [​IMG]

    For the Akron Zips, Senior halfback #10 Alex Allen. He has accumulated 57 carries for 450 yards and 7 touchdowns. Allen had this to say about his role in the upcoming Central Michigan game -

    "This is my last year and my chance to show everyone what I've got so I'm going to give it my all. If the coaches think that the best gameplan is to hand the ball off to me 25 or 30 times, then great. If they think we should throw the ball more, then no problem. I'm going to block and I'm going to run my routes just like everyone else."

    other players: QB #11 Chris Jacquemain (Sr), WR #1 Deryn Bowser (Sr), FS #22 Amin Kabir (Sr)

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Coach K had this to say about his gameplan against the Zips -
    "On offense, we are going to use our talented receivers, and let Dan make his reads. On defense, we are hoping to create some turnovers, but honestly, our offense will be our best defense tonight."

    Coach Mors also had some choice words in regards to stopping LeFevour and their plan of attack -
    "With any great player, like he is, there's no stopping him, you just have to try to limit him. Put pressure on him and force him to make quick reads and hopefully a mistake or two."
    "Offensively, running the ball has become our gameplan this season and I don't expect that to change much for this game."


    Tune in to www.justin.tv/murkya21 tonight at 9:45 Central to watch the start of MAC play in TT IV!!​

    Wow! What a way to kick off the user vs user action in the MAC. It was an offensive show at some points, and defensive at others. Akron was forced to use all their timeouts when Central Michigan was running the clock out late in the fourth. They held the Chippewas to a field goal on that drive, but they wish they could’ve had one of those timeouts as the game ended on a 21 yard reception that came just short of the end zone. Chippewas defeat the Zips 38 – 30!!

    Key Moments Of The Game:
    - Senior WR Jean Pitts had kick returns of 21, 61, and 87. He set up a TD after a Zips score and added one of his own!
    - Senior QB Chris Jacquemain sheds a tackle in the backfield, and then throws a laser between defenders to find Sophomore Deryn Bowser for a 26 yard TD reception.
    - LeFevour to Schroeder - 51 yard TD reception on a screen pass at the end of the half for Central Michigan.
    - Central Michigan played tough 4th quarter defense; forced a INT for TD to go up two scores.

    CMU 7 14 0 17 - 38
    Zips 7 10 7 6 - 30


    1st Half
    On Central Michigan’s first drive of the game, LeFevour had his pass intercepted on a fade route, giving the Zips a chance to go up first in the contest. Shortly after, Akron was forced to punt on a 3 and out, but when the got the ball back, they made the most of it by picking apart Central Michigan’s secondary. With 1:46 left in the 1st quarter, Chris Jacquemain found Deryn Bowser for the score on a play action pass.
    Akron 7 Central Michigan 0

    At this point, Coach K was getting pretty worried because LeFevour was seeming to be having trouble against the aggressive man to man defense the Zips were running, but thanks to WR Jean Pitts, the Chippewas were right back in the game in no time. Pitts would return the kick all the way to the 12 yard line, and LeFevour would cap it off on the next play with a touchdown pass to FB Marcel Archer.
    Akron 7 Central Michigan 7

    In the 2nd quarter, both teams began to get a little more comfortable with how the other was playing, and things started to open up. After a Akron fieldgoal, Pitts had another miraculous kick return, but this time for an 87 yard TD!
    Central Michigan 14 Akron 10

    With 2:36 left in the half, Jacquemain was able to find Jerome Royal for a 19 yard catch and run touchdown. Although, on Central Michigan’s ensuing possession, Coach K caught the Zips sleeping on a halfback screen call on 3rd and long. Within field goal range, Central Michigan was lucky enough to intercept a ball to hang on to the lead for the half.
    Half time: Central Michigan 21 Akron 17


    2nd Half
    Akron came out with guns blazing, and took the lead early on a 3rd down conversion where Jacquemain slipped the tackle of a defensive end, and then through a laser in between coverage to find Deryn Bowser for his second score of the night.

    Central Michigan went scoreless this quarter, but played solid defense for the most part. The Chippewas were able to avoid going down two scores when the forced a fumble out of the Zips’ fullback.
    Akron 24 Central Michigan 21

    The momentum from the turnover carried over to the 4th quarter, as Central Michigan put together a long drive packed with a lot of LeFevour runs until he was able to hit the halfback Paris Cotton for a 25 yard touchdown reception.
    Central Michigan 28 Akron 24

    On Akron’s next drive, they went to their 5-wide offensive attack, and the Chippewas were able to force an interception off a forced throw that would ultimately be taken to the house by Senior cornerback Josh Gordy.
    Central Michigan 35 Akron 24

    Akron scored on their next drive with four minutes left, but failed on the two point conversion. There was still plenty of time in this one, so the Chippewas needed to run some clock off, which is exactly what they did. Nine rushes in a row, and the Chippewas were able to run the clock down to 1:15 and leave Akron with no timeouts, down by eight points.
    Central Michigan 38 Akron 30

    With a running clock, the Zips had one last chance, but they fell just short of the endzone on a 21 yard reception by Curtis Brown.
    Final: Central Michigan 38 Akron 30

    It was a back and forth game all night, with a lot of ups and downs. Central Michigan was lucky enough to catch some breaks and force turnovers at key moments of the game. Dan LeFevour was taken off the field on a stretcher on the last play of the game. As of right now, the staff does not want to release the details of his injury, but expect to hear from them no later than the end of the week.​


    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Press Conference -

    Coach K – “First off, I’d like to thank you all for coming out. We are very fortunate to come out with a win tonight, but we won none the less. We feel that if we can come out better next week against Buffalo and get a win, are chances at getting to the conference championship vastly improve.â€ÂÂ

    Media - "Coach, what does this game do for a future rivalry with Coach Mors?"
    Coach K - "Well, I have a feeling we are going to really battle it out year after year. Both of our teams lose a lot after this season, so it’ll be interesting how this game turns out a year from now.

    Media – “Coach, Dan LeFevour seems MORE than shaken up after that big hit. What condition is he in right now?â€ÂÂ
    Coach K – “We aren’t here to discuss that right now. Dan and his family are at the hospital, and if you don’t mind, that is where I will be headed shortly. We hope that you keep him in your prayers tonight, a hit like that is scary to watch any player take.â€ÂÂ

    Another amazing user vs user game in the MAC! In a defensive battle, Central Michigan prevailed victorious 21-17. It was back and forth; up and down. If you weren’t there, you’re a square!!

    Key Moments Of The Game:
    - After a broken play and TD saving tackle, Buffalo tried to pound it in for the score. This is when Senior SS Eric Fraser would pop the ball loose for the Chippewas to recover, swinging the momentum.
    - Buffalo finally got on the board on a 69 yard run by Mario Henry where the defense guessed wrong, he broke a tackle, and then juked another defender out of his shoes!
    - Buffalo had a hard time containing QB Dan LeFevour as he went on to play a spectacular game. 19 for 25, 222 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT – 19 carries for 73 yards, 1 TD.
    - 4th and 1, with not much time left and a lot of field to cover, Nick Bellore and Zach Benke stopped the Buffalo QB in the backfield to seal the victory!!

    Buffalo won the toss, and chose to kick off to start the game. Getting right to action, Central Michigan moved the ball down the field into field goal range to take the early lead.
    Central Michigan 3 Buffalo 0

    The Chippewas were able to hold Buffalo at bay for the most part in the 1st half. That is, until halfback Mario Henry ripped off a 69 yard run for a TD out of the wildcat formation. The teams went back and forth, and displayed good defense. It wasn’t until a broken play on 3rd and 10 until things actually became interesting. Central Michigan audibled to man coverage, and it seems the middle linebacker didn’t get the message since he let his many run right by him on a slant. After 44 yards, he was finally brought down inside the five – this proved to be very important.

    On the very next play, Central Michigan stacked the box and Buffalo ran it right at them. Senior strong safety Eric Fraser made a game changing play, when he came in and laid a hit on impact player James Starks, making him fumble the football in the endzone. The Chippewas didn’t make the most out of the opportunity, but they were able to keep Buffalo out of the endzone for the rest of the half, and also added three more points of their own as time expired.

    2nd Half
    In the second half, Buffalo wasted no time with the Chippewas and passed the ball all over the secondary. Ultimately, they would find the endzone on a 22 yard reception that was brought down between two defenders. The throw wasn’t exactly what Freshman quarterback Alex Dennison wanted (being hit while throwing, it seemed to hang up there an extra while), but you can’t complain when you get up off the ground and see another 6 points gleaming on the scoreboard.

    Central Michigan tied the game up on the next drive, converting two big 3rd and longs to wide receiver Bryan Anderson, and catching the defense off guard with a halfback screen that went for a TD. The two point conversion would be good to the backup halfback on a short pass to the flats.

    Both teams went back and forth some more, and headed into the fourth quarter all knotted up!

    Buffalo had the ball first, and put together a long drive that they were able to cap off with a FG on 4th and 1. Central Michigan got the ball with 4:30 seconds left in the game, and wanted to score but at the same time take care of the ball. They did exactly that, making some big plays on receptions and mixing in some QB runs along the way. The Chippewas were able to take the lead on a 4 yard rush by LeFevour, leaving a minute on the clock and Buffalo in a tough spot.
    Central Michigan 21 Buffalo 17

    Buffalo went with four straight pass plays, that left them in a 4th and 1 situation at about the Chippewas’ 40 yard line and only thirty seconds left. Buffalo played it conservative, by trying to pick up the run, but were met in the backfield by the second and third leading tacklers of the game (Nick Bellore and Zach Benke).

    Dan LeFevour rested his knee on the ground and pointed to his Central Michigan teammates and fans.

    Final: Central Michigan 21 Buffalo 17

    It was a great game, very defensive, and very methodic. My hat goes off to Newb, he definitely has some skills. I wouldn’t say the fumble in the endzone necessarily lost him the game, because there were missed opportunities by both squads. Central Michigan dropped or misplayed three balls that should have been intercepted off of lame duck passes or just errant throws. Both teams got big plays when the needed them, both teams came up with big stops, it was an awesome game!​


    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Press Conference –

    Media - "Coach, this is a huge win for you guys. What did you tell your kids after the game?"
    Coach K - "Uh, I congratulated them all, but also tried to make them realize where this puts us. By that I mean, everyone is going to be trying to knock us off now in the MAC. We were never really a sleeper, but now no one will overlook us the slightest bit. We can be sure that other coaches will be receiving tonight’s game film, and teams are going to start making adjustments to our offense.

    Media – “By offense – you mean LeFevour? (laughs)
    Coach K – “Dan is a big part of our game plan, of course, why wouldn’t he be. But don’t forget that we are a team, and it takes 11 guys to move that pigskin down the field. We’ve got some serious threats at wide receiver and our O line is playing pretty damn good.

    Thanks for coming out everyone, I wish you good luck on your way home, Go Chippewas!!â€ÂÂ

    Well, it wasn’t the great rivalry game everyone was expecting, but the Chippewas will take it!!

    Key Moments Of The Game:
    - Two interceptions and a huge hit by Eastern Michigan on LeFevour keep them in the game in the early goings.
    - Bryan Anderson burns the coverage on a sideline route and LeFevour is able to show off his arm strength by hitting him on the run.
    - 4th quarter, Kirkston Edwards breaks NCAA interception return record with a 105 yard TD return!!
    - Central Michigan takes a knee and Coach K gets showered in gatorade as the clock ticks down to double zeros!

    TEAM 1st 2nd 3rd 4th OT FINAL
    CMU 10 23 7 10 - 50
    EMU 3 0 0 0 - 3



    It wasn’t exactly a close game at any point, but Eastern Michigan was able to get some big hits on LeFevour and force two interceptions out of him. Once he calmed down and got some help from his defense (safety in the second quarter), LeFevour began to light up the score board. He got three different players to the endzone through the air – Schroeder (6 yard reception), Cotton (13 yard reception), and Bryan Anderson (59 yard reception).

    In the second half, it was more of the same story. The backup quarterback, Sophomore Ryan Radcliff, led the team and did a very nice job of managing the game. Safety Kirkston Edwards broke the NCAA record for an interception return, when he took one from end zone to end zone – 105 yards!!

    The game ended as LeFevour and crew jogged onto the field to knee the ball. It was a tough way to lose for the Eagles, you can be sure they will be thinking about those double zeros from now until the next they meet Chippewas.

    Next year, there will be new faces for both squads and the rivalry game will be held at Eastern Michigan, it’ll be interesting how things pan out!


    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Press Conference –

    Media - "Coach, on a colder than usual October night, I bet that Gatorade shower didn’t feel too great.”
    Coach K - "Are you kidding me?!?! Nothing feels better than beating your rival, it’s what we’ve been training for this entire off season. Luckily, we will get to have some more fun next week against Western Michigan!

    Media – “What are going to be the keys to winning next week?”
    Coach K – “Well, it is going to be how the kids react this week at practice. I think they understand that Western is going to bring a little more to the table this year than Eastern Michigan did, and that it is going to be a battle.

    They are a lot like us. They have an outstanding offense, and can win most games if the defense can make some stops. It’ll definitely be an interesting game. We will be ready.”

    Central Michigan really came out strong, and jumped all over the Western Michigan mistakes! In the first quarter they had a huge interception return by Kirkston Edwards (last week: 105 INT-TD) and Antonio Brown returned a punt for a TD (New NCAA Record – 90 yards).

    Key Moments Of The Game:
    - Kirkston Edwards’ interception return for a TD on Western Michigan’s first drive!!
    - 90 yard punt return for TD by Antonio Brown!
    - Western Michigan was able to stay in the game by converting on many 2nd and 3rd and short situations.
    - Western Michigan was unable to contain the beast that is Dan LeFevour!!

    CMU 21 7 14 10 - 51
    WMU 7 3 14 7 - 31


    The difference maker in this game was how Central Michigan came out ready to go. They collapsed on passing lanes, hit the backs hard, and on offense there was just no stopping them. It was pretty demoralizing for Western Michigan when it seemed so easy for the Chippewas to score, yet they were having to go for it on 4th down and having trouble punching it in inside the five yardline!

    To Western Michigan’s credit, they came out a much more determined team in the second half, but it just was too late. When you are dealing with a team the caliber of Central Michigan, you have to play them for four quarters, not two.

    They defense played very well in the first half for the Chippewas, but weren’t as aggressive in the second half. Which resulted in some points being put up on the board, but all in all they did a good job considering their opponent.

    On offense, Bryan Anderson and Dan LeFevour led the team. LeFevour almost rushed for 100 yards while passing over 200 with 4 TDs – Anderson being on the receiving end of two of those.


    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Press Conference –

    Media - "Coach, congratulations on the back to back rivalry wins.”
    Coach K - "Thanks alot! That’s why these kids play the game; that’s why they put in the work they put it in. We will be celebrating tonight!

    Media – “What are your thoughts on the game tonight – in general?”
    Coach K – “I really like how our kids responded in the 1st quarter. We were talking about this game making or breaking our season, and they really stepped it up. If you go back and look at that first quarter, you’ll see what I mean!”

    Central Michigan 6-1 @ Bowling Green 3-4​

    Doyt L. Perry Stadium - Bowling Green, Ohio
    August 8th (Saturday) - TBD Central (later tonight)



    For Central Michigan, they need to use this game as a stepping stone to reach the conference championship. They've already beat the #1 team in the East Division (Buffalo - NewbSlice), but there is still a long way to go since they are just reaching the halfway point with their user games.

    Central Michigan - Offense: Florida; Defense: 4-2-5

    Bowling Green on the other hand needs this win just as bad. They are coming off a dissapointing loss to Northern Illinois 45-21, and the beginning of Bowling Green's intense back-to-back-to-back user vs user schedule in which they had/have to play Northern Illinois 7-0 (The Parrothead), Central Michigan 6-1 (MurkYa21), and Buffalo 7-1 (NewbSlice). A win here can boost their confidence, while a loss can further ruin their season.

    Bowling Green - Offense: Penn State?; Defense: 4-3

    Players to keep an eye on -

    [​IMG]

    For Central Michigan, Senior quarterback #13 Dan LeFevour. He is 75 of 120 for 1219 yards, 15 touchdowns and 4 interceptions, while at the same time rushing for 500 yards and 5 touchdowns.​

    other players:
    WR #7 Bryan Anderson (Sr) - 19 receptions for 483 yards, 5 TDs
    WR #1 Kito Poblah (Jr) - 13 receptions for 293 yards, 2 TDs
    FS #2 Kirkston Edwards (Sr) - 43 tackles (2 TFL), 2 INT-TD (105 & 73 yds), 2 deflections, 1 FF




    [​IMG]

    For the Bowling Green Falcons, Junior halfback #28 Willie Geter. He has amassed over 1500 total yards through rushing, receiving, and returns. He has accounted for 10 TDs and will be a huge factor in this game.

    other players:
    QB #13 Tyler Sheehan (Sr) - 141 of 246 for 1851 yards, 18 TDs, 16 INTs
    WR #7 Freddie Barnes (Sr) - 26 receptions for 476 yards, 6 TDs
    MLB #43 Brandon Jackson (Sr) - 46 tackles (6 TFL), 2 sacks, 2 deflections

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Coach K on how to be successful against the Falcons -
    "Well, on offense we are just going to do what we do. We tend to control the clock pretty well, pick up first downs, and hit you with the big play when you are suspecting it. On defense, I just tell the kids to fly around and have fun. If they can force some turnovers, we WILL win."


    Tune in to www.justin.tv/murkya21 tonight. I will update when I am sure of what time we are playing.​

    Got really busy and far behind on my summaries...so here is a little run down of the past three games..


    Week 8 - @ Bowling Green (RageRoolz)

    My third user game of the season, and just like the others it was a dog fight. My team struggled bad in the first half! We could not stop them from moving the ball at will, and we had two VERY costly fumbles. LeFevour fumbled after a 15 yard run in the redzone, and then Antonio Brown failed to fair catch on a punt and fumbled giving the ball back at the 5 yard line.

    Both teams scored 21 points in the 2nd quarter, and CMU went into the locker room down 7. After a few words with the guys, we went out very fired up and took care of business, tying it up in the third and putting it out of reach in the fourth.

    CMU held Bowling Green to zero second half points and went on to win 38-28.

    Player of the Game: Dan LeFevour - 18 of 24 for 299 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT - 29 carries for 134 yards, 2 TDs



    Week 9 - @ Boston College

    The Chippewas bounced back from a sloppy performance the previous week and went on to man handle BC 50-14.

    Player of the Game: Bryan Anerson - 7 receptions for 124 yards, 2 TDs



    Week 11 - Toledo

    Central Michigan came into this game maybe a little TOO confident and unprepaired. the previously 1-8 Rockets got down early, but fought back pulling within 1 point after a interception returned for a TD. Although, pressure would force a missed PAT. 31-30. Later on, the same kicker attempted a 45 yard fieldgoal. It had PLENTY of power, but was just off to the right and hit the cross bar. NO GOOD. CMU escapes with a win 31-30.


    Now, Central Michigan plays @ Ball State, where they hope to seal their fate as the MAC West champions. With only two games left on the shedule, it is not sure who will win the MAC. It could Central Michigan, Ball State, or even Northern Illinois. It is all in Central Michigans' hands. Will they live up to the expectation?

    CMU finished 11-3...I blame EA


    Week 12 - @ Ball State (Riptides)

    Unfortunately, do to some sort of EA bullshit...this game had to be simmed. CMU 40 Ball 27


    Week 13 - Northern Illinois (The Parrothead)

    This game would determine who would represent the West division in the MAC championship game, and the Chippewas were able to come out on top. A game with hardly any defense at all, the Chippewas were able to outscore Northern Illinois.

    Player of the Game: Dan LeFevour - 9-13 for 182 yards, 2 TDs - 25 carries for 99 yards, 2 TDs



    MAC Championship - Buffalo (Newb Slice)

    A rematch from earlier in the season, but costly interceptions lost Central Michigan this one. Buff 38 CMU 31.

    Player of the Game: Dan LeFevour - 26-38 for 334 yards, 2 TDs, 3 INTs - 23 carries for 95 yards

    GMAC Bowl - Houston (mcyork)

    This game also had to be simmed. FUCK EA! CMU would lose 46 to 37, but LeFevour went out like a champ throwing over 500 yards!!

    Player of the Game: Dan LeFevour - 52-70 for 509 yards, 5 TDs - 11 carries for 36 yards

    beep..beep..beeeeeeeeeep...

    THAT'S WHAT YOU THOUGHT!

    Everyone is counting on the Chippewas to be down for the count this season after losing star quarterback Dan LeFevour, outstanding wide receiver Bryan Anderson, and almost everyone from the defense! BUT, hate to break it to ya, Central Michigan went shopping this season...and they picked up some nice recruits.

    The defense will start 7 of those recruits (6 Freshman, 1 Sophomore). The leadership will come from the linebackers (2 seniors, 1 junior), and All American Senior Free Safety Zach Benke who finished the 2009-10 season with 75 tackles (14 TFL) and 4 FFs.

    The defense is actually improved from a D+ to a C- heading into the season.

    On offense, some what inexperienced yet veteran players will take over in key roles. The O line consists of 3 Senior, a Junior, and a Sophomore. In the back field will be a rotation of Junior Bryan Schroeder (86 OVR) and Junior Paris Cotton (92 OVR).

    Filling in at QB will be Junior Ryan Radcliff, who did VERY well in times of blow outs or injuries to LeFevour. We do not believe there has been any down fall at the quarterback position and we fully trust in Ryan's abilities (last season: 31/48 for 558 yards, 6 TDs, 0 INTs). Also looking to rotate in will be the in state Freshman, Zac Ferguson. Zac has reminded many of a young LeFevour and will be used at such. Although, you can imagine the offense will be much difference from last years, but you can expect some things to stay the same.

    Much of the season's success will be based off of how well of a year Antonio Brown has. Last year he came in as one of the most electrifying players in the conference, but was shakin up by a big hit in the season opener. He had a good year (52 receptions for 645 yards, 6 TDs, 0 drops), but not as good of a year as he had hoped.



    WHAT YOU KNOW BOUT THEM CENTRAL MICHIGAN BOYS!!​


    The Chippewas open their season at home against Arizona. Coach K is still furious about last year's slap in the face, time expiring field goal that they kicked to run up the score. Regionally broadcasted, this is one game you don't want to miss.

    Week 1 - Arizona

    All in all, it was a pretty good game on both sides of the ball. The younger guys on defense had a huge impact tonight. We also learned that we are going to have to transfer to an even different offensive look than tonight. You will be seeing a lot more under center from the Chippewas this season.

    Also note that Coach K decided to kick a field goal as time expired, sending a message to the Arizona coach that what goes around comes around. Kelly-Shorts Stadium is our house bitch!

    W 27-19

    Week 2 - @ Tulsa (MM Jman)

    It was a great game, but Central Michigan still needs to get their offensive game plan together. Key oppurtunities weren't taken advantage of on offense, and on defense there were times when the ball was on the ground but they just weren't able to get to it.

    L 31-21

    Week 3 - Miami University

    We saw a team in Miami U that had a lot of heart tonight, even though they were down most of the game they still played all out. The Chippewas lost Ryan Radcliff early in the game opening a window of oppurtunity for all the back up quarterbacks. Freshman Zac Ferguson, Freshman Barry Beck, Freshman Michael Warren, and Sophomore AJ Westendorp all got snaps tonight.

    Westendorp was immediately put into the game for Radcliff, but after throwing an interception that was no where near the receiver the coaches benched him. That is not the say he still isn't in the race for that back up position though. All the Freshmen did pretty well combining for 250 yards, 3 TDs, 1 INT on 10 completions and 13 attempts.

    This was a great step in the right direction. Even without Radcliff and Cotton in the game, things were really clicking for the Chippewas.

    *Quick HB Cotton was injured at some point during the first half and we are not sure when or if he will be back.

    W 49-19

    A persistent Ohio team just didn't have enough fire power in the second half to keep up with the Chippewas. Central Michigan, down 10-3 at the half, outscored Ohio 24-0 in the second half to claim a 27-10 MAC victory.

    Key Moments Of The Game:
    - Ohio's V. Davidson scores on a 44 yard rush on the second play of the game.
    - Offense got things clicking in the second half, and started moving the chains with ease.
    - The defense plays lights out, and the offense adds 17 fourth quarter points to put a "W" in the books.

    Central Michigan shows their caliber right from the get go! It would've been a flawless game if not for the punt return Navy returned for a touchdown before the end of the half. Antonio Brown played a stellar game (rushing and receiving a TD), HBs Schroader and Cotton both rushed for over 100 yards, and backup QB Freshmen Zac Ferguson mixed up the tempo by showing his wheels 9 times for 54 yards and a TD.

    Key Moments Of The Game:
    - Antonio Brown scores a receiving TD, and then a rushing TD all in the 1st quarter.
    - 24-8 at the half, after a punt return for TD by Navy.
    - Antonio Brown injured late in the 3rd quarter, will be back in 2 weeks. (Bruised Shoulder)

    The Central Michigan really came together, they showed that they have playmakers other than Antonio Brown, and they are still a serious threat in the MAC! Toledo put up a great fight, but in the fourth quarter Central Michigan was able to make more big plays. With Antonio Brown back next week, look for Central Michigan to be rolling on all cylinders against user The Parrothead and Northern Illinois!

    Key Moments Of The Game:
    - Central Michigan goes up 14-3 early, but momentum is stolen after an interception.
    - Neither team can get things going in the 3rd.
    - Toledo goes up 14 with 6 minutes left after a fumble returned for TD and two point conversion.
    - CMU responds with an incredible 24 yard TD reception from Ferguson to Bradley.
    - Toledo scores a 71 yard TD on third and long to go back up 14 with 4 minutes left.
    - CMU equals that with a 71 TD of their own to Torres, and tie it up with another Torres TD with 1:45 left
    - CMU forces a fumble and kicks a FG to go ahead with :30 seconds left
    - Toledo lines up for a 37 yarder, iced kicker, and missed wide right for the second time in a row!

    A game that may have decided the MAC West representitive came to an exciting finish in double overtime! The Chippewas showed their heart and persistance, taking the lead late in the 4th quarter after being faced with a 2nd and 15 from the one yard line.


    Key Moments Of The Game:
    - CMU stopped the run game, but was torn apart by NIU's Empty set.
    - CMU puts together a miracle 99 yard drive, but NIU ties it up on a FG as time expires.
    - 1st OT: both teams held to a FG
    - 2nd OT: CMU defense holds strong, but walk on, Freshmen kicker misses the game tying kick to send it to triple overtime.

    Once again, the big Western-Central Michigan rivalry doesn't live up to the hype as the Chippewas rout Western Michigan, 52-7. Freshmen QB Zac Ferguson had a very solid outing when called upon throwing a TD pass and rushing for 3 TDs on only 4 attempts.


    Key Moments Of The Game:
    - CMU goes into the locker room at half time with a solid 17-0 lead.
    - WMU is finally able to get on the board with a 75 yard TD pass.
    - Freshmen DE Rich Phillips (4 star) almost cribs an INT!
