Miami of Ohio completes record-setting turnaround with win over Middle Tennessee in Bowl |

It matters not in the slightest that on their 10th win, they finally scored 35 points in a game. (Their previous high, 31 against Colorado State.) So what if they got clobbered by AQ conference teams? So what if they're not considered a "great" team? They won their last six games, including two they shouldn't have, and despite their esteemed coach leaving the school (and with it, his esteem), they went the distance.

Also, you can make a very strong case — one that I might even notarize — that Byron Mulkey, not Mr. Silas, is the best player in the MAC, in that he's a more complete player. No, he's not even the top scorer on his team, but as the point guard he's first in assists (5.3) and steals (3.4), third in rebounds (4.6) and averaging less than two turnovers a game. That's very efficient and they don't lose possessions when he's managing the game.
