    Let's get a little talk going - conference champs

    For the MAC...things kinda got screwed up when the entire East division got wiped out.

    Buffalo will win the East (last year's champ w/ Newb Slice), and after an incredible double OT over Central Michigan..Northern Illinois will most likely win the West.

    predictions?

    When it comes to offense...

    Buffalo is ranked #2 in the MAC
    Column 1 Column 2 Column 3 Column 4 Column 5 Column 6 Column 7 Column 8 Column 9
    TOTAL OFF PASS RUSH PPG PTD RTD SACK 1DWN
    4697 3787 2313 1474 41.3 23 17 19 157


    While NIU is ranked second to last in the MAC
    Column 1 Column 2 Column 3 Column 4 Column 5 Column 6 Column 7 Column 8 Column 9
    TOTAL OFF PASS RUSH PPG PTD RTD SACK 1DWN
    3865 3108 1501 1607 37.0 6 24 12 141


    but with such a balanced attack...and beating last year's West rep, and being currently undefeated + ranked #18..they must be respected!

    When it comes to defense...

    NIU is ranked #1 (#5 in NCAA) giving up only 2018 yards, while Buffalo is ranked #3 giving up 2603 yards.

    Their red zone statistics are very similar..
    Column 1 Column 2 Column 3 Column 4 Column 5 Column 6 Column 7 Column 8 Column 9 Column 10
    TEAM OATT TD FG % DATT DTD DFG %
    Buff 32 27 3 93% 22 12 6 81%
    NIU 33 22 8 90% 22 10 8 81%

    The Conference USA on the other hand is a little more complicated..

    EAST
    UCF > 6-1(5-1) *beat S. Miss 24-21, got beat by Houston 38-35
    S. Miss > 8-1(5-1) *4-1 vs users, one more conf. game

    UCF's fate is in their own hands, if they are able to beat Rice next week they will win the East..but if they lose, then Southern Miss will repeat.

    West
    Rice > 7-1(5-0) *Has user games left against UCF (could decide East), and Houston
    Tulsa > 7-2(4-2) *is basically out, correct me if I'm wrong..
    Houston > 5-3(4-2) *With a win over Rice, and a Rice loss to UCF..they would take the West division..

    This could get very interesting..

    A lot is on the line for each division still..
    I'd like to add one thing...Rice lost to NIU in the season opener 41-17!! HA

    Tulsa is not out! They need to win out and hope for UH to beat Rice... gl with that one..

    If Rice wins either the UCF or UH game, the Owls win the west!

    Comes down to these next two weeks!!

    Don't kid yourself we're out.

    We're just gunning to beat ECU and pull of an 11-2 season with a bowl win....

    Then next year its paybacks, I believe my team of FR and SO will return 19 starters on both sides.

    You know what's funny is that I advanced through the end of the season. Max lost to UCF and UH to end up at 6-2. I won out to end at 6-2 and Tulsa won out to end at 6-2. I was ranked higher than all of them yet Tulsa made the CUSA champ game. I don't think I can win the conference unless you guys loose to a cpu team. So heres to the CPU doing its thing!!!!

    I love how max basically controls his fate on getting in to the championship game...

    and..if he were ballsy enough he could pick who he wanted to play in it (losing/winning UCF game)

    Is McGuffie back yet?

    I'm scared of NIU... I'm curious what Shrike has to say since he's played us both.

    Do I even have a chance?

    Well it looks like he loves to run the football so if you can stop the run you might have a chance. Good luck. I picked him to win but I'm rooting for you cause I gotta root for my division. Rep the east well.

    I wouldn't say Northern Illinois is the favorite when Buffalo has won back to back MAC championships (since they won in 08)

    I stopped the run, but he was able to pass all over me

    2007 Central Michigan (7-1)
    2006 Central Michigan (7-1)
    2005 Akron (5-3)
    2004 Toledo (7-1)
    2003 Miami (8-0)
    2002 Marshall (7-1)
    2001 Toledo (5-2)
    2000 Marshall (5-3)
    1999 Marshall (8-0)

    So he's out for the season? or is it a number of weeks?

    because depending on how the game does it...he may be back for the conf. championship (if you make it)

    I'm all for giving bulletin board material. haha. Seriously, I would hope you feel the same way in that I don't stand a chance against you. I wouldn't think anyone on here would want anyone else to stand a chance against them in the game. Just saying. :cool:

    keep the firing burning.

    Appreciate it, after the Temple game the team captains came to me and decided they wanted to go to two-a days, just for you..

    They made mistakes during the Temple game, and wanted perfection when they play you..
