Actually .... with the possible exception of Bowling Green (too low) ... this is about how the league ranks after a couple of weeks ... considering SOS

RE: MAC basketball Pomeroy rankings
Basketball rankings of any sort are completely meaningless this early in the season. There aren't enough connections between teams having played each other to gain a complete picture. There's a ton of movement from game to game as a result. Check back in January when there are way more data points.

While it may be too early for power rankings, in my own personal power rankings I see one definite trend in the MAC this year, it has completely flipped from defense to offense this year.

There's really not that much movement once you get a few games into conference play. Things are pretty solidified by then and movement tends to only be ten to fifteen spots (out of ~350) for each game played.

CMU just won the Great Alaska Shootout with defense. Toledo's defense is better. Buffalo can defend. EMU is still tough to figure, but has big defensive potential. Might be more offense overall this year but not a complete flip.

Oh, how the MAC has fallen. Not a single team even sniffing the top 100, let alone anything significant.

How are we second highest in the MAC? St Louis U aside, we just continually lose against Div I competition.
