Garrettsville State blew a 21 point lead against Canada.  Now Canada leading in final minutes. Canada looks tough.

Canada has as much, or possibly more, talent as anybody in the MAC.  Their biggest problem is  Coach Jim Whitesell.  They sorely miss Nate Oats, who has done an exceptional job in his 2 years at Alabama.

Miami smoked Bowling Green 96-77.  Plowden and Turner combined for 41.  The other 3 starters combined for 4 points.

I know the MAC East is tough, but OU's been a disappointment.

I'm not sure why, but it looks like Preston missed a few games.

Quick look at the MAC standings uncovers something really rare.

Toledo leads the conference with one league loss. That loss is Akron.

EMU and NIU sit at the bottom of the MAC standings with only one win a piece. That one win in each case is Akron.

How odd is that?

And watch out:  Garrettsville State has won 4 in a row!

There is no MAC East

 

I really like the no-division look in the MAC. Hopefully this is the way (Mandalorian pun intended) going forward. 

 

I have spoken.

I like it.  I also like only 8 teams going to Cleveland.  It makes the regular season more meaningful.

I like the 8 team thing but I also like byes for the best regular season teams, which is taken away with an 8 team tourney. So it makes the regular season more meaningful, and then it kinda doesn't.

The NIT is still on for 2021 and the conference champion gets an auto bid to the tourney so it gives more meaning to winning the conference.

Fun game to watch. Props to KSUcks... Nevermind. Can't give them props at all. Thank you Toledo for giving them another L. I dislike both programs, but I really, REALLY loathe PCCC.

Exactly.

I love to hate Buffalo.

I love to hate Ohio.

And I love to hate Toledo.

But I simply loathe Kent.

From the Zips perspective I'd like to see a few more Toledo losses. On the chance that the conference tournament doesn't get held they would send the regular season champ. I think the Zips can beat anyone in the tourney so I don't want to risk missing it because of that. Zips deserve a return trip after getting cheated out of it last year. Also happy there are no divisions this year for that reason. Whoever gets the first seed this year will have really earned it.

Me too MDZip, especially one next week to the Zips!

In general I'm not in favor of expanding the NCAA tournament but I saw an interesting proposal on ESPN for an 80 team one. Both regular season and conference tournament champs would be guaranteed a slot and anyone who won both would get a bye. I'm all for allowing more participation by the overlooked teams.
