Todd from Chicago writes: Zach, was wondering what realistic chance you think Toledo has of beating the Huskies Tuesday without Dantin. I expect NIU to bring the heat and make it difficult for the Rockets to stay in this game. 36-12 NIU final. Any prediction?
Zach Silka: Todd, I think the final score will be a little closer than 36-12, but I agree NIU will make things tough on Toledo, especially without Dantin. Redshirt freshman QB Terrance Owens is a pretty capable fill-in for Dantin, but this will be his first career start and that's an awful lot to ask of him to knock off the MAC West favorites at their home field. Both NIU and Toledo have won by virtue of winning the turnover battle, so I'd say whichever team does that will probably win the game.
Jan from Toledo writes: Hello. At the two exhibition games for the men's basketball team and the one Thursday night for the women's team, the other teams came over to us and shook the Toledo coach's hand. We did not do this, and when Zack Leahy went to go over there an assistant coach pulled him by the arm and would not let him go. Why do we not do that? I have never seen it done before in any games until this year. Do you know why the Rockets did not go shake hands with their opposing coaches?
Zach Silka: If I understand your question correctly, I think you're talking about pregame handshakes, and not postgame. Customarily, across college basketball, teams don't exchange pregame handshakes and save that for after the game. As far as I know, UT players and coaches shook hands with the visiting teams after the game. Hope that helps answer your question.
