There is a very solid, mid-major home OOC schedule.

2021/2 MBB Schedule!!!
The MAC season starts on New Year's Day? That's strange.

MSU again. Meanwhile UM is apparently still avoiding EMU.

I can see two D1 non conference games on weekends. Looks like the lowest competition level is Northwood. Two B10 games one more than usual. Yep this is a great improvement.

BTW, we have a 20 game conference schedule. Hence the early start in December.

Oh, good observation, ‘Steve. I kind of like the 20 game conference schedule, it evens up across the divisions some. I never had an interest in dividing the conference up like that.

RE: 2021/2 MBB Schedule!!!
I see EMU going 6-5 (+/- 1 game) with this OOC schedule.

** 3 definite losses at Indians, MSU, and DePaul.
** Of the 3 road games against Northern Kentucky (217), UC San Diego (244), and Valpo (223), none were very good last year. But with the portal, and especially with Valpo’s history, etc, probably should be losses. So I think EMU snags at least one of these.
** 5 games at home are against Illinois St (243), Western Illinois (309), Northwood (D2), Niagara (218), and FIU (298) all seem winnable.

Now that said, all these teams are probably looking at EMU’s 317 ranking and looking at us a guaranteed win.

Really shouldn’t go there. Entire team just getting together. Haven’t practiced together. Wait till we find out more about each player’s skill-set.

Is not the time to look at a team’s projected rankings as no one has played yet. Prognosticators know little about teams. Just look at computer generated info that don’t even include everyone under scholarship, and is based in many cases on misinformation. Bart Torvik doesn’t even include Luka S., Randle, and Moe Njie on EMU’s roster.

Haven’t seen HC Heath’s offensive and defensive systems. Has two months to get team to perform as a coordinated unit.

Indiana and MSU are good teams but had losing conference records last season. MSU lost out on big-time recruit. DePaul nothing to shout-out about. Won but 2 conference games in Big East.

Right and we haven't seen the rest of the Macs offenses or defenses either.
Most teams,are jelling with newcomers. Most previews will miss some of the newcomers.

MAC teams have lost good players and added new players. Whether overall they have improved or taken a step backwards will become evident after the season starts.

Right now, looking forward to hopefully learning how EMU’s new players perform in team scrimmages, and HC Health’s initial impressions of his team.

I think the overall opinion of veteran MAC fans and watchers is the league has improved greatly over last year talent wise and coaching wise. Some say the MAC may be a two bid NCAA league this year.

Of the top seven MAC mens bb teams finishing in MAC standings, do think that Toledo, Akron, Ohio, Bowling Green, and Kent State have taken a slight step backwards offensively. Buffalo won’t miss a beat. Miami should improve.

RE: 2021/2 MBB Schedule!!!
Good for EMU to finally get a quality home schedule non-conf. As some folks said above MAC should be strong this year. Lots more talent came in through the portal than went out and the top 2 transfers out (Marreon Jackson, Nuga) were covid seniors who weren't expected back at Toledo and Kent save the extra year of eligibility thing. I'd guess it like this, with the disclaimer as Miggy said that you gotta wait and see which newcomers are better than expected, which are disappointments, and how teams gel (some quickly, some later on, some never).

Toledo-should be a similar team, perimeter oriented, deep and talented through the 1-3 positions, but dealing with another injury to their center so playing small ball again. Got a really good transfer pg (Boise St starter) and Rian Rollins is gonna compete for league POY and be the next NBA prospect out of the MAC.

Ohio-should be similar in overall competitiveness although Preston gave them a game changer who could lift up the entire team in big games. Sears will be a good MAC pg, but not Preston. Deepest inside talent and experience I can remember in a MAC program in a couple decades.

Akron-on paper should be weaker, but if a couple talented transfers and freshmen adapt and fit in quickly they could be comparable to last season.

Miami should be better. They came together in MAC play last year and got a roster all hitting their prime. Not a lot of newcomers but added a pretty good BC transfer-big wing- and emerging sf Javin Etzler could be a breakout player.

Kent on paper is weaker, but could become dangerous once the pieces come together. Along w BG dded the most transfer talent in the league and have a decent core back. Depends on how it gels, but lots of veteran guys, most with some size and toughness.

BG should be better. Turner was replaced by a slew of proven sg transfers. Everyone else is back. 15 guys on scholarship. More size and depth.

Buffalo should be similar. Lost an all-mac guy in graves but added 2 proven veteran A10 sg transfers. Everyone else is back.

CMU, EMU, NIU, all look better on paper, but lots of new faces and coaches. May take time at some places to figure it out.

Ball St may be down a bit but worked the portal and could surprise.

WMU looks similar on paper but seems to be gathering momentum as a program (recruiting very well) and could surprise.

Does Oates' contract have the same 25-win "cupcake incentive" that the last coach had?
