ZUVER: A dysfunctional day from the dysfunctional Indianapolis Colts franchise

“We cultivate winning cultures, we cultivate toughness, we live by integrity, and we don’t expect any more than we expect from ourselves.” Colts Owner Jim Irsay’s message to the media after one of the most chaotic days in the franchise's rich history. Let's forget Monday for a moment. This entire season has been a masterclass on dysfunction in the NFL. Let’s just take the last three weeks, to keep it concise.

Offense, offense and more offense. Ball State (1-0, 0-0 MAC) opened its 2022-2023 campaign with a 106-39 win against Earlham (0-1, 0-0 HCAC). It did not take long as they jumped to an early 17-5 lead with 14:53 left in the first half. After that, the Cardinals took the momentum. The team looked solid right out of the gate, with multiple drive-ins that put the Cardinals at the free-throw line.

“I'm so excited for our kids and for our program,” head coach Mike Wilhelm said. “We talked with this group about being champions months ago, because we knew we had the ingredients to be a championship team. But we had to grow and we learned from our losses and from some of our weaknesses throughout the year. I think we corrected those and that's how you become a championship team.”


Ball State secures senior night sweep over Golden Flashes to claim MAC West Division Title  

Heading into the final road trip of the year, Ball State commands its own destiny. If the Cardinals can win two out of their three remaining games, the Cardinals will claim the MAC regular season title uncontested by Bowling Green, who is currently 2.5 games behind. With the regular season title, the MAC tournament would be played from Worthen Arena and Ball State would have home court advantage throughout.
