Holy schnikes, how were the Broncos picked the win the MAC? I'm wondering if we'll even finish .500 in conference.

I know IU isn't very good this year, but Miami beat an IPFW team that just destroyed the Hoosiers in Bloomington.

Indiana also beat Notre Dame and nearly beat Duke. Strange team.

Fort Wayne did the ole 'Puncher's Chance' big (from boxing) and beat IU by 20.

FW shot 17 of 30 behind the arc and I always say when commenting about EMU games, any team which shoots say 50% behind the arc and making say 15+ of those shots can beat most any team in the country on that night.

And I'll bet the next game FW probably returns to form, whatever that is.

Big game for Buffalo tonight at Syracuse. The big question is will Wes Clark get eligible before tip off. If he does that is just another huge addition to an already really good UB Team.

This would really help Ball State out.

Interestingly, Idaho was in the Great Alaska Shootout, which CMU won. They didn't play head to head as Idaho lost to CSU Bakersfield (twice this season actually) who CMU beat in the championship game.

I think the West is going to be the West. About 3-4 average teams, 1-2 awful teams, and one team that is above average, but will have an inflated record because of they get two games against the rest of the MAC West (basically the MAC East in football). Who falls into what spots will be interesting. I don't think CMU will finish last as predicted. They are actually a better team than last year despite losing the Texas Two Step and 50+ PPG. They're playing defense, and they have a balanced attack on offense. Still lacking a real threat in the post though. If I had to pick them now I'd say

BSU - Wins it

Average Teams
EMU
CMU
Toledo

Tweener - WMU (They have some talent but have looked pretty bad so far)

Bad
NIU

Please remind me how Wes Clark came to transfer from Missouri. Thanks.

This article does a pretty good job explaining it:
