Guys. It’s a big game today. You might call it an opportunity game. While the program is certainly not near the point of upsettting a P5 right now, toppling a CUSA favorite might be in the cards.
Middle Tennessee are (now) 17 point favorites for good reason. Rick Stockstill has had this program in contention for conference supremacy in each of the conferences his whole career.
Still, this is an moment that can change this season. Lots of teams have lost and won games they shouldn’t have. Seventeen points is not 41 and that was a point spread overcome not too long ago.
Sure, it is game day and MGN is in Vegas (for a wedding) and so I am unreasonably hopeful. So let it be.
Go Mean Green.
