So how did we do compared to the Media Poll?

 

--- East Blog Poll --- East Media Day --- Winner West Blog Poll --- West Media Day Winner
1 Temple(10) 97 1 Temple(17) 137 Tie 1 NIU (9) 96 1 NIU (15) 115 Tie
2 Ohio(2) 89 2 Ohio(3) 116 Tie 2 Toledo (2) 73 2 CMU(3) 83 Bloggers
3 Kent 64 3 Kent 94 Tie 3 CMU 62 3 WMU (2) 77 Bloggers
4 BGSU 55 4 BGSU 74 Tie 4 WMU (1) 58 4 Toledo 75 Bloggers
5 Buffalo 44 5 Miami 53 Media 5 Ball State 29 5 Ball State 50 Tie
6 Akron 12 6 Buffalo 48 Media 6 EMU 2 6 EMU 20 Tie
7 Miami 12 7 Akron 38 Media    

 

Each side 'won' three and while the Media's up view of Miami carried them to owning the east the blogs all saw Toledo as the proper #2 seed in the west.
