The necks need a big upset today. They are not getting beat bad just keep getting beat. They are a terrible second half team. They need to get off that hurry up offense it aint working. Take your time on every play and shorten the game. The short passing game is your best bet with offensive line woes. The qb needs to get rid of the ball in a hurry. The defense played good enough to win against indiana state. Good luck today and go necks.

Sunny morning in Macomb.

Will become partly cloudy in the afternoon with occasional rain showers. Chance of rain = 50%. KHQA expects very light showers with a rainfall total of 0.1 inches. After the last 2 home games, any weather without any lightning will be a big improvement.

Forecast high is 65.

Winds: SW at 5-10 mph.

Anyone else annoyed the young kid calling the games on the ESPN broadcast has no idea who the players are?

Maybe it's tough to see up there and there's no monitor, but each week he has no idea who the players are, like he's never seen a team roster or this team play.
Think Purple...lets think Gold as in Championships!!!

I have to confess, I watch the game on ESPN+, but listen to Frey and Cody on the play by play. They're often a bit ahead of the video, but oh, well.

Dumbest play call I have seen in D1 football.
If Jimmy V was a programmer like me, he would have said it like this: while (!(succeed = try()));

So, as a non-football player, I have to ask. As a defensive player, do you get really pissed at the offense when you work your butts off, keep ISU to 3 and outs, and get an interception, and they STILL blow it?
