Media Picks EMU Last in MAC West

July 30, 2015

The press has spoken, and Eastern Michigan has been picked to finished dead last in the MAC West. This is a surprise to no one, as EMU still has to prove on the field that they are relevant in the MAC.

The race at the top of the MAC West is going to be a tight one between Toledo, Western Michigan, and Northern Illinois. Central Michigan is a wildcard, CMU is historically a successful program, but there has been turmoil and change in Mount Pleasant. The team could respond to head coach John Bonamego’s cancer fight and put forth a truly inspired effort. Whatever the on field result, here’s hoping Bonamego’s treatment goes well, and he is soon back in the best of health.

As for EMU, the last place prediction is pretty meaningless. I’ll have more to say when I write my full season preview, but this year is a continuation of last year’s rebuilding/rebranding. Improvement is necessary, but expectations need to be realistic. If the steps forward are small, that will probably be enough to carry momentum into the off season.
