MAC Recap, Two Games in...

Its early....two games in with 16 more to go for the regular season MAC title.  Just a second to check in...the key at this point isn't the record, but who you have played and beaten...and have you lost at home or won on the road.

Akron for example, is 2-0.  That's with 2 road wins.  They won @Ball State, which is good because it was on the road, and once at OU, because OU was looking very strong.  The latter was a 2OT thriller.  Anyway, with 2 road wins, Akron is off to a nice start.

Buffalo is 2-0, both at home.  They thumped NIU, which is a game you should win at home and then they beat EMU at home, which could later turn out to be a pretty nice win.  Still, they have not played on the road yet.

WMU is 2-0.  That's a home win over the road-challenged Rockets and then a road win over Miami.

Speaking of Toledo...they are 1-1 with a win at home (CMU) and the WMU loss on the road.  That's holding serve in the MAC.

Ohio is 1-1 with a home loss to Akron and a road win over Kent.

Miami is 1-1.  I think Miami might be better than people think.  They won @Cetntral but then turned around and lost at home to WMU.

Kent (1-1) has played two at home, losing to OU and beating Ball State.

EMU (1-1) has played both their games on the road.  They won @BG and lost @Buffalo.  Still, 1-1 without playing at home is not a terrible position.

NIU (1-1) has played twice on the road, losing to Buffalo and beating BG.

Three teams are 0-2.  BG is the only team with two home losses in the MAC.  CMU and Ball State have both lost once at home and once on the road.
