MAC Hoops Whiparound
MAC play is less than a month away. So far the bell - cow of the conference is Buffalo. UB is unbeaten and is currently #17 in the nation. Otherwise, it appears that MAC teams fall into one of two categories; same old, same old OR huh, look at them.

same old, same old
Eastern Michigan is 4-5 and winless on the road.
Bowling Green, Miami and Western Michigan are 4-4
Northern Illinois is 4-3
Ball State is 5-3

huh, look at them
The obvious one here is Buffalo. The Bulls are unbeaten with wins over West Virginia and Southern Illinois. Before conference play begins UB will take on Syracuse, St. Bonaventure and host Southern Illinois in a rematch. I hope one loss doesn't knock them out of the top 25. On the other hand, maybe three wins here get them on the verge of the top 10.

Kent State and Toledo are 7-1. The Rockets haven't beat anybody great and the loss to Wright State shows their mortality. But you've gotta figure they will, yet again, be in the thick of the race in the MAC West.

Central Michigan is 6-2. The nicest looking win on that slate is a road win at Sam Houston. Keno Davis, in my opinion needs that one big season before he is gone. Could this be the year.

Akron is 6-2 but the school is bankrupt so we shall see.

RE: MAC Hoops Whiparound
These next 3 games will show us how good Kent State really is - I think 1 win out of the 3 games would be respectable. Oregon State is 77th in the Sagarin rankings now, and Louisville is 30th. Kent State is ranked 140th and Wright State is ranked 135th, so while this looks close, Wright State has won the last 3 games with Kent.

And while Louisville is down this year, a win there would get a lot of notice.

Buffalo stays unbeaten with win over Bonnies. Northern Illinois gets smoked at Buffalo.
