Bull Run MAC power rankings

Kickoff is tomorrow and the round table should be up tonight so it seems like the right time to start my power rankings

Squad Comment
Toledo Last season Toledo was seconds short of winning the MAC west. They lost to NIU then they lost their coach but with NIU breaking in a new QB they have the upper hand
Ohio The is on prize left on Frank Solich's to do list and that’s the MAC title. With so much returning and Temple gone the East should be theirs to lose.
Northern Illinois This is, fundamentally, still a very strong team. If Jordan Lynch comes along fast they may keep pace with Toledo
Western Mighigan If any Quarterback in the league can carry their team to a title it's Alex Carder. Not that he has to, WMU is loaded this season with 3 players on award lists
Bowling Green A lot of returning experience is a boon for Clawson. But his teams have typically not finished well in close games hence his job could be on the line
Kent They've had the defense for a couple of years but as always the question for Kent is the offense. Can a New Quarterback get them over five wins.
Ball State Lembo pulled a minor miracle last season and with the losses on defense hell need another one this year if the want 6 or more wins again.
Miami An all around goot team with some standouts at the skill spots. They are more likely than any team in the bottom half of the conference to surprise.
Eastern Michigan Time for Eastern Michigan to see if Ron English can take the next step.
Buffalo UB's schedule is not doing Jeff Quinn any favors. They play the top three in the west, miss out on Akron, and play three AQ teams
Central Michigan It was not all that long ago CMU was a dynasty but they never recovered from the loss of Lefevour and Brown.
Akron Rebuilding would have been hard enough without Brian Wagner. iCoach set the zips back significantly in his two year stint
UMass They are doing a fine job recruiting now but it may be a year or two before that shows up. Though they may give Akron or Buffalo a run for their money
