Preseason MAC media polls are in
It looks as if the Broncos won't be burdened with high expectations, at least according to the media. They did give some love for Flenard, though.


West Division Predicted Order of Finish
(1st place votes in parentheses)

1. Ball State - 124 points (12)
2. Central Michigan - 122 points (8)
3. Eastern Michigan - 88 points (2)
4. Western Michigan - 68 points
5. Northern Illinois - 64 points (2)
6. Toledo - 38 points

East Division Predicted Order of Finish

1. Ohio - 128 points (12)
2. Kent State - 114 points (8)
3. Akron - 104 points (4)
4. Miami - 84 points
5. Bowling Green - 42 points
6. Buffalo - 32 points

Tournament Champion: Ohio (10), Kent State (6), Central Michigan (4), Ball State (2), Akron (2)

West Division Preseason All-MAC Team

Jarrod Jones, F/C, Ball State
Trey Zeigler, G, Central Michigan
Brandon Bowdry, F, Eastern Michigan
Xavier Silas, G, Northern Illinois
Flenard Whitfield, F, Western Michigan

East Division Preseason All-MAC Team

Brett McKnight, F, Akron
Scott Thomas, F, Bowling Green
Justin Greene, F, Kent State
Julian Mavunga, F, Miami
D.J. Cooper, G, Ohio

MAC media preseason Picks

Media pick CMU 2nd, EMU 3rd, WMU 4th in MAC West

The MAC media has spoken. They are never incorrect, right?

Actually, I'd rather see WMU not be predicted to finish high. We've tried that before and didn't quite live up to expectations. Much easier if everybody thinks the team will be bottom feeders and surprise everybody.

How often have we seen our team slotted below EMU in the preseason in recent years?

1. BSU - Loaded
2. WMU- Deep and has some star power
3. EMU- Has some star power, lacks depth
3. CMU- Star power at one position, very young, no center
4. NIU- Team is falling apart
5. UT-Team fell apart and is trying to rebuild

Interesting that after losing as much if not more than we did and gaining one player CMU is though that much better of. Haven't we shown that it takes more than one player to make a good team?

Wait a second, are you questioning the love fest for Trey Zeigler? How dare you! :ncaabbs:

Bowdry and who? It's easier to stop a low post threat than any position on the floor, especially when there's not much around him.

Ziegler can create his own shot. I'll be curious to see if the old man plays him at the 3 or has him in the backcourt.
