Even in the last two season when Miami has been at or near the bottom of the league and BG at or near the top. Miami has won 3 of the 4 games, and the three wins were by 13,14, and 18 and the one loss by 2.

Gotta love the Whammy. Miami wins by 19!

RE: MAC basketball 2021 ...
I think Toledo is step above the rest of the league right now, but with that being said there just isn't a whole lot separating the top nine or 10 teams in this league. Every teams has some really good players, but has some major flaws.

If you asked me today who I think will win the league, the answer is Toledo, but one month from today that could be a very different answer.

I wouldn't say nine. I'd go 5-6 if you're thinking about what teams can win three games in three days (MAC Tournament).

Toledo
(Gap)
Akron
Bowling Green
Buffalo
Kent

Toledo clearly the best and most cohesive. The next four throw in a hat.

Akron has the best team defense and starting to find comp players to go with Jackson.

BG runs hot and cold but still has elite game-changer (Turner) most nights.

Buffalo is the most physical and has best inside presence of the five, but chemistry is off and 3-pt shooting is ???

Kent doesn't really have an inside game, yet team is long and athletic w/Pippen being a mismatch most nights ... when he's on. But defense very ????

After that is there any team you really like, for 3 nights, above those 5 options?

I agree with you on that group that could win it all, but I think you have a second group that if they make it to Cleveland can upset any of these teams: Ball State and Ohio definitely and then even EMU has beaten Akron and Miami just beating BG.. So I think there are teams that can win games in Cleveland, just not win the whole thing.

nothing official, but the rumor is that some leagues including the MAC will send their conference champ to the tourney this year. covid has made so much uncertain and with some teams missing a lot of games and possibly conference tournaments with a couple of the teams in covid protocol the only real constant is everyone will play a bunch of conference games. so, that's the most fair way to send a league rep to the dance. in terms of Toledo, the staff is stressing this likelihood and telling the guys to take every conference game as if it was a mac tourney do or die moment, which may be contributing to toledo having more consistency this year than in recent seasons.

Buffalo is going to spoil someone's season this year. They are losing some tough games at the very end. At some point they will flip that around. They clearly can hang with the top MAC teams.
