EMU picked 4th in MAC West
MAC media day poll looks pretty accurate. I would take slight issue with EMU. I would put EMU at No. 3 ahead of NIU and I think Miami is going to win the MAC East.

Team (First Place Votes), Points
MAC East Division
1. Ohio (11), 131 points
2. Miami (12), 129 points
3. Bowling Green (1), 88 points
4. Akron, 79 points
5. Buffalo, 41 points
6. Kent State, 36 points

MAC West Division
1. Toledo (22), 142 points
2. Western Michigan (1), 107 points
3. Northern Illinois (1), 89 points
4. Eastern Michigan, 74 points
5. Central Michigan, 62 points
6. Ball State, 30 points

2017 MAC Championship Game Winner: Toledo (21); Western Michigan (1); Bowling Green (1); Miami (1)

I don't think EMU 4th is all that bullish of a pick, tbh. Winning at DeKalb doesn't come easy.

Our schedule is a bear. Getting bowl eligible again will be a successful year.

I feel 4th or even 5th is realistic if Morris steps up in Mt. Pleasant.

It's going to be a bear to replace those lineman as well as O'Connor.

Sometimes I wish (for FB) that we were in the MAC East.

MAC West MBB is easier than East, but the West kills us in FB.

We usually get beaten up by NIU, TOL and WMU.

To be the best, you have to beat the best...No athlete wants to take the easy way.

Dear Friends,
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.

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.
