Second MAC Football Nugget

From the MAC's website....

Of the 47 conference games played in 2008, 25 were decided by seven points or less, with 18 of those 47 decided by four points or fewer in the final margin.

I find this really interesting. MAC football clearly is not at the level it was earlier in this decade, and it is clear that parity (if based in mediocrity) is the order of the day. Still...it is an exciting brand of football. And in my cursory review of the season to come, there is no reason to think next year will be different.
