For several teams the train went off the tracks kind of early..
For more than half of the MAC the season is officially over for several a bowl is guarenteed and fore a few more there is hope of some post season MACtion.
It's the end of the line for:
iCoach: Relieved of duties almost as soon as the whistle blew on their last game
The Chazz Man: Gave Buffalo a little spark but not enough to win too many games
The Chip Dynasty: One bad season does not a dynasty end but two awful ones marks its passing
Kent's Doormat status: Not a winning season but better results and some decent recruits raise hopes
The Intimidating 'Clawfense': It's become pretty clear that Toledo made a better hire than Bowling Green.
Two FCS games: One game against FAU instead of an FCS team and EMU might be Bowling
A loaded Senior Class: Miami returned almost everyone but could not win the close games, next season they will have a lot of fresh faces.
|NIU||-||Solid season by NIU but they lost the kind of games you must win to be ranked, like Kansas.|
|Toledo||-||Really a toss up with NIU they did lose by three but there out of conference results impress|
|Ohio||-||They choked twice against UB and Ball State but what should worry them in the MACC is the lack of comfortable wins|
|Temple||-||Temple is going to spend a lot of time near or at the top of the East eventually the ball will bounce their way|
|WMU||1||WMU came on really strong as the season wore on, they might catch a bowl opponent napping|
|Ball||-1||Ball State has a very, very outside shot at a bowl they did well in the close games but not well enough|
|Miami||1||Way better than their record indicates, they lost their last three conference games by a score or less|
|EMU||-1||looks nice on paper but EMU has just one 'good' win over the Broncos everyone else they beat was a loser|
|BGSU||1||Started strong then got really bad. Things look good in the future as they have, maybe, the next MAC's QB|
|Kent||-1||Came on strong in the second half of the season but they just dug themselves too deep of a hole early on.|
|CMU||1||One of two MAC coaches who start 2012 with a very hot seat. CMU went from head basher to joke in two seasons|
|Buffalo||-1||The other MAC coach with a very hot seat in 2012. You wont last long with wins over FCS teams and Akron.|
|Akron||-||The Coach hunt has begun and once again we learn "Notre Dame Pedigree" does not mean what it used to|
