Senior day is always emotional. But this year's crop of seniors, one that won either two or four games as freshmen, will try to play off their enthusiasm today, not just the raw emotion of the moment. The seniors draw a distinction between the two, pointing out that emotion fades, while your enthusiasm for football never wavers.
Nonetheless, senior day is a memorable one. Today at 1p.m. the Cardinals welcome the Miami RedHawks to Muncie for the occasion. BallStateSports.com caught up with seniors Connor Ryan, Jamill Smith, Nathan Ollie and Jordan Hansel to talk about their thoughts prior to the game, their reflections back on four or five years as Cardinals and how much they work to savor these final moments.
