MAC West Preseason Backwards Countdown 2014 # 4

MAC West Preseason Backwards Countdown 2014  # 4

Starting Monday May 26 – June 7 we will attempt to rank the teams in the Mid American Conference.  On June 7th we will reveal the projected finish from top to bottom 1-13

RECAP West Countdown

4. Central Michigan  (6-6)     2014 Prediction(6-6)

5. Western Michigan (2-10)  2014 Prediction(5-7)

6. Eastern Michigan (1-11)   2014 Prediction (2-10)

  • Comparison of our original 6 voters (5/9/14) compared to the new poll with 17 people (5/25/14)
  • Our original 6 voters the outcome was remarkably different than when we added an additional 11 posters that shared votes from the MAC board members (additional votes from 5/24 and 5/25).  After tabulating the results and without disclosing the difference in the two polls you will be surprised with the outcome (6/7/14).  Hope everyone enjoys the poll and  gets pumped to battle on the field in August.   So we started the backwards Countdown for the 2014 Preseason ranking with the East and now present the WEST.

4. Central Michigan (6-6) 2014 Prediction (6-6), Dan Enos 19–30 (.388) will look to direct the Chippewas back to post-season glory in his 5th year.  After a successful bowl win in 2012 over Western Kentucky in the little Caesars Bowl (24-21) the goal in 2014 is to get back to a Bowl.  Central Michigan football holds the distinction of having the most Super Bowl players in Super Bowl XLV of any college football program in the nation. The Chippewas play in the 30,200 seat Keelly/Shorts Stadium.  Averaging just 341 yards of offense in 2013 the Central Michigan Chipewas still managed 6 victories.  Cooper Rush stepped in mid way last year as a freshman and now has experience at the quarterback position that may propel the Chipewas into a better record for 2014.  Saylor Lavallii ran for 807 yards, and now he’s back along with Maurice Shoemaker-Gilmore in the backfield.  The experience of the line with all five starters back should be another factor for improvement in 2014.   Titus Davis potentially could be a   breakout star after picking up 1,109 yards and averaging 18 yards per catch with eight scores, and he’s not the only key target returning.  On the defense side of the ball there is a list of key starters returning.  Leading tackler Justin Cherocci returns at MLB, unfortunately – LB Shamari Benton and S Avery Cunningham have moved on. Everyone else is back including three starters up front and most of the secondary.  PK Ron Coluzzi returns after hitting 12-of-17 field goals in 2014.

  1. Too many errors. Predicted overall record of 6-6 then game predictions add up to 7-5.? Ohio & Buffalo write-ups include victories over CMU.

    • Not sure if I follow you Buffalo… loses to Baylor, Ohio, Bowling Green (9-3)

      Ohio… loses to Marshall, NIU, Kent State & Bowling Green (8-4)

      THIS IS NOT WHAT WE HAVE PREDICTED! I don’t see where you got those numbers, (6-6 then game predictions add up to 7-5.?) Sorry.

      We did not use any computer predictions, results were taken from MAC response to the order THEY selected for the finish.

      Thanks
