Bizarro World...MAC Road Teams Win

So, for years it has been a staple of accepted fact that it is hard to win on the road in the MAC.  You heard it on press conferences every week, uttered of course by the losing coach.

It is hard to win on the MAC.

As in....

The sun rises in the East.
Water flows downhill.
It is hard to win on the road in the MAC.

Look, it isn't like it wasn't borne out by the facts.  Last year, the home team won 56% of conference games and the year before the home team won 67%.

So, people were not prepared for what has happened so far this year...which is....

It isn't that hard to win on the road.  In fact, it is easier than winning at home.

So far.

That's right...road teams have won 53% of the games this year.  And while I don't necessarily see this carrying out for the whole year, for this season it has thrown the whole thing into chaos.  Two years ago, four teams lost zero or one game.  This year, only six teams even have a chance.

Anyway, this will be interested to track as time goes on.  For right now....its Bizarro World.
