In the media poll released in conjunction with Media Day in Detroit, Kent State was picked fourth and UA was picked seventh in the East. Miami was a narrow choice over Ohio in the East. Toledo was the pick over NIU in the West. Toledo was picked as the 2011 champ.
I will do a notes story about the UA and KSU reactions to being picked so low. My main story will be on the new taunting rule in college FB this year. The MAC coaches like it and had some good comments,
