MAC Discussion

Should be an interesting year with lots of teams looking the majority of minutes played from last season.

The MAC West has more experience returning but the MAC East has reloaded year after year the past decade plus.

In the East I like Buffalo, Kent and Ohio. I think it'll take Groce a year or two before Akron is really a threat again. They lost too many players even before the coaching change to be dominant in conference again this season.

In the West, WMU is early favorite.

Ohio played in a tournament in Charleston, South Carolina and had respectable/close loses to Clemson and Dayton before finally getting a win over Indiana State. Ohio is playing without returning MAC Freshman All-MAC/Preseason 1st Team Center Jason Carter. He is injured. Should be back early next month. Along with two injured freshman post players, Ohio has played thus far with basically two servicable bigs. Excited to see what they can do with Carter and some post depth.

I don't know if I'd call getting beat by 14 to Dayton as respectable

Yeah OU isn't very good right now. Lost two of the top 5 players in the MAC and Carter is injured

Toledo probably a bit young in the paint to win the West. Coach's recruiting is skizzo. Can't decide if he want's Bobby Knight's team or Jerry Tarkanians, so he gets half and half.

Big games against Syracuse and Kansas. Probably beat them and lose to Cornel, lol. Nope. UT struggled with Oakland, who was missing one of their top players and Oakland just got an education from Syracuse. I don't think Toledo will hang, unless a lights out perimeter game.

I could very easily see Buffalo winning the East and Massinburg winning POY but I don't see them running through the East. I think 13-5 probably wins the East this year.

Was expecting a lot worse without Jason Carter and starting a freshman PG. Fortunately for Ohio we won't be without Jason Carter too much longer and Teyvion Kirk looks like the real deal at PG.

Agreed bottom of MAC looking a lot better than I expected considering MAC was hit fairly hard by graduation.

I think Coldwater has a great chance to win the league this year

Pretty interesting test tonight for Kent State. They're catching Xavier right after the Muskies had an emotional win over UC, so they could catch them kind of flat.
