Mac top 25 watch
Might as well start this thread. Predictions:

Ohio- with attrition at the bottom of the top 25, Ohio could very well make it's first appearance. Although I think we all agree that they aren't playing like a ranked team. They need to get in the mix quickly and start climbing the polls of they want to have that BCS dream season scenario. Right now I don't see them cracking the 17/18 threshold if they are undefeated headed to Detroit.

NIU- i'll say we garner a single AP vote. We'll be on the radar.

Toledo- I'll say they garner 2 AP votes.

At this point, I'm hopin for the dream scenario. Toledo finds a way to beat Cincy and we both win out to set that game up as a #23 vs. #25 blackout game in Dekalb. Then the #21 ranked Huskies go to Detroit to play the undefeated and #17 ranked Ohio Bobcats.

Obviously lots of work to do, but it seems reasonable at this point.

I don't think Ohio is quite the team they were earlier in the year, with a bunch of DBs out. So they could get in the top 25 but I don't see them as any better than the good teams in the West. I doubt we'll get any votes until we win at least 1 more game.

I don't think we get any AP votes. Coaches poll maybe...

I would agree I watched their game yesterday and they did not look all that dominant. Are their injured players out for the season or just out for a few games? If they are only out for a few games, they could pull things together and still have that dream season.

I think we will get one vote in the coaches poll. Next week if we win we will get 2 or 3 AP votes.
