RE: NIU odds to win MAC
I don't think NIU has the horsepower this year to beat the Golden Turds or WMU, but the rest of the MAC schedule is doable.

Winning the MAC is important, but if that can't be achieved, getting bowl eligible after a 0-6 season last year would be a big improvement. I see 7-5, not great, but at this point I'll take it. The team has some talent, just needs the experience.

You can't forget the 0-6 season, the announcers during the GT must have mentioned it 20 times, literally.

Ken Barna has been around for years. I wouldn't classify him as a troll; just a hugely hypersensitive Huron fan who responds to the tiniest slight of EMU. He is unfailingly polite...

I have no problem with Ken. He is a true EMU fan and defends his team, just as we would defend NIU.

Hulkamania brother. I value anyone and everyone, who values small market football like us. Except for that weirdo ISU guy from two years ago. That guy still sucks.

Yea that guy wasn't just defending ISU, he went out of his way to rip NIU for everything. I have no problem with Ken either. He's a true fan, where many of his compatriots have gone off to hop on the bandwagon and become Big 10/11/12/13/14 fans though they have no connection with those schools.

I put $100 down at +4000 before the season.

Long way to go, but it wouldn't surprise me at all if we are betting favorites now after yesterday.

I have a really dumb futures parlay that looks less dumb by the day:

NIU to win the MAC
Bills Super Bowl
Astros World Series

$5 to win $16,000.

"Why not us"

(10-03-2021 02:48 PM)Ken Barna Wrote:  Dear NorthCoast and Rabid Squirrel,
You need to brush up on your facts about Eastern and bowl games. Eastern was tied for second place in the MAC West in 2018 with Toledo and Western with identical 5-3 MAC records and 7-6 records overall.
Eastern has been to four bowl games in the last five years, including the Motor City Bowl in 2019 vs, Pittsburgh.
You have won this years game, but if you think your team is a world beater, dream on.

Dearest Kenneth,

That question was directed towards the holybovine troll but allow me this opportunity to congratulate Eastern on its TWO third-place finishes (thus qualifying for top half of the MAC West) since 1997 when the MAC started playing a Conference Championship game.

Those years, for anyone who is curious, were the aforementioned 2018 season and the 2007 season. Also, allow me to clarify any confusion with your contradictory claim of a second place finish (tie) in 2018. There are these things called tiebreakers, and using these tiebreakers, it turns out that the three-way tie you mentioned gets sorted out as such:

1) Head-to-head record: All three teams went 1-1 against each other.
2) Division record: All three teams went 3-2 in the division.
3) Winning percentage of cross-over opponents: Western with cross-over opponents winning percentage of .583 wins the tiebreaker giving it second place.
4) Remaining teams revert to head-to-head matchup and on the strength of a 28-26 victory over Toledo at Rynearson Stadium, it is Eastern Michigan that secures third-place and that coveted top half distinction.

Again, congratulations on Eastern’s TWO top half West division finishes since 1997.

I’m here to talk about NIU’s odds, which I hear are a tremendous value.

I’m seeing that the line actually opened at NIU -8 but quickly jumped to NIU -10.

Just out of curiosity, what are EMU's odds of winning the MAC? Asking for a friend.

RE: NIU odds to win MAC
Still liking my $20/150-1 offshore and $10/65-1 on FD/IN to win the West. Latter at least I know won't get "held up."

Never went back on to bet the over 3 wins.

Fingers crossed.
