College Football Predictions Review: MAC

I love predictions. If you’re reading this, there’s a good chance you love predictions as well. I’ve been making college football predictions for well over a decade now and I don’t like to brag, but I’m pretty damn good at it. I hit way more often than I whiff, but let’s face it….no one is perfect.

Anyway, I’m not the kind of guy who makes predictions and then buries them to never be seen again. Oh no. I like to bring those suckers back and see just how right/wrong I was when I made these predictions back in August.

We are going to break this down conference-by-conference because that’s just how we roll around these parts.

Next up? We got some MACtion!

So, without further ado…..

How Did I Do?:

Not that bad actually. If anyone knows their MAC football, it’s this guy (not really). As far as my predictions are concerned, I was way more right than I was wrong as it pertains to this specific conference. I called Western Michigan winning the conference (which makes me 3 for 3 as far as conference winners go), I absolutely nailed Toledo and Kent State’s records, and I was only one game off from predicting four of the other teams records correctly as well. Like I said earlier, not that bad.

Where I whiffed completely was Eastern Michigan, Northern Illinois and Bowling Green. No one expected Eastern Michigan to be any good. They’ve only won seven games total the previous four seasons and came out and matched that win total this season. It was a big year for the Eagles. As far as Northern Illinois and Bowling Green are concerned? Buzz, your girlfriend…..woof. Both of these teams are used to being near the top of the MAC and it was a down year for both programs.

But none of that really matters because I totally called Western Michigan winning the MAC!!! And like I said earlier….I’m 100% so far on my conference champions. Life is good right now. Life is good.
