Rank Team Pvs chg RPI Record MAC Last Comment
1 CMU 2 1 98 16-10 6-0 3-0 @ Miami Central continues to roll and Ball State's stumble against Buffalo makes the Chips a clear choice for number one this week
2 BSU 1 -1 102 17-10 4-1 1-1 @ UB BSU had UB on the ropes but let the Bulls back into a game after falling behind 8-0. But they followed that up by shutting down UB the next game.
3 Kent 4 1 109 14-10 4-2 2-1 @ EMU Kent is looking like a top five team but if they are losing games to teams that should not be beating them.
4 Buffalo 5 1 162 11-9 3-2 1-1 vs BSU Buffalo showed heart in their first game at BSU but they also showed some bad fielding as well. For UB consistency is a problem.
5 Miami 3 -2 95 10-15 2-4 0-3 v CMU Miami was swept at home against CMU. They host Akron next weekend in what should be a good barometer for both teams.
6 Akron 6 0 181 12-11 5-1 2-1 @ TOL Akron's rank did not change but for all intents and purposes I consider them to be "Tied" with UB and Miami.
7 WMU 7 0 176 12-11 3-2 2-0 v Ohio Sweeping Ohio is not going to move you up too much but it's got feel good for WMU to be over 500.
8 BGSU 9 1 243 6-15 2-4 2-1 v NIU The defending MAC champs are not looking very "champ-like" this season. Giving up wins at home against NIU does not help their cause.
9 Toledo 8 -1 167 9-14 2-4 1-2 v Akron Toledo was a borderline 500 team when they entered conference play but a 2-4 start is dropping them, and their RPI, like a stone.
10 NIU 11 1 233 4-19 2-4 1-2 v BGSU The Huskies seem to be good enough to steal a game here or there but with CMU and Ball State still on their schedule getting to the MAC postseason looks unlikely.
11 EMU 10 -1 207 10-13 1-5 1-2 v Kent The good news for EMU is that they got their first conference inw, the bad news is they got beaten at home in yet another MAC series.
12 Ohio 12 0 287 4-19 0-5 0-2 @ WMU Ohio is, well, Ohio… Eventually they will get a win in conference, maybe…
