I still say that the MAC is a quarterback league, and if you do not have one with experience, you are probably going to have a rough go of things. That said, is why I think both Central and Western could be in trouble. Neither has a quarterback coming with experience, and with coaching changes as well.
I agree with Bob. If Eastern wants to be a top team, they have to be able to beat the best.

Ken,

You are right on. Football in general is a quarterback's game and we have the elite athlete playing at that position this year bar none and better than Woodside. Toledo had a better overall Offense compared to us last year (RBs and WRs). However this year, if Vann and Breck stay healthy at RB and our WRs improve in their second year, I believe we will be on par with Toledo offensively. We beat Toledo this year because our defense will be better than their scheme. Just need our Special teams to come thru.

Some of you on here we're touting Porter as our QB when he did well against Charlotte. I said Roback is physically the best QB in the league and better than Terrell. Terrell just had amazing receivers to go along with his decent decision making skills. If our OL can be better than average and Roback makes good decisions, we win seven games this season. We have the top QB in this conference bar none. If Roback started the first three games last year, he would have thrown for 3200 yds. We beat Toledo at their place this season and Roback's hometown friends cheer us on to victory.

Agree. And those inexperienced QBs from CMU and WMU will go against the most experienced and proven defense EMU has had in years. Wish we had them earlier in the season.
The "inexperienced" QB for CMU is Shane Morris, former U-M QB! Interesting to see if he was a legit Big 10 signal caller.

Don't think he won a single game he started at Michigan so I'd say it's pretty clear he wasn't a legit Big 10 signal caller.

If Morris doesn't start for CMU, Tony Polijan will and in my opinion, is the next big MAC QB. He tore up their spring game.

I still think that Morris has had some type of agreement to start and he has probably grown since his freshman and sophomore years, especially after working with Harbaugh.

CMU will be around 5-6 wins.

Exactly, haha. If he was legit he's still be at Michigan, and not up in CMU wasteland desperate for a chance to start a college football game.........after 4.5 years of practice and coaching at the highest level.

Kid was overrated from Day 1

Hard to argue with that. Just because a kid "played" at UM doesn't mean he's legit. They transfer for a reason.

IMO Roback is the best college QB in the state. I'd take him over Speight any day.

Not a fan of Speight, but NO WAY would I take Roback over him. Brogan Roback has a great arm and below average decision making ability--relatively speaking, for a DI QB.

I think that Roback will have the best numbers of any QB in the state but probably isn't the best QB in the state, if that makes sense.
