Men's basketball Only four teams get byes in the MAC Tournament. I created a way to predict them.
If you won on the road, you'll win at home. If you lost on the road by more than 10 (at the end of regulation), then you'll lose at home. If you lost on the road by 10 or fewer (at the end of regulation), then you'll win at home.
I realize it's not precise. The "at the end of regulation" feature protects teams that were tied after 40 minutes but fell apart in overtime (like Akron @ Miami).

Football Shane Montgomery has accepted the offensive coordinator position at Akron, Rivals.com
Montgomery was head coach at Miami for four seasons. The RedHawks won the MAC East in two of them. Montgomery helped to develop
Ben Roethlisberger at Miami. He also coached
Terrell Owens at Chattanooga.
I am very, very excited. I thought Montgomery got shafted at Miami. He is a fantastic coordinator with a track record of developing NFL stars. He also knows the region well for recruiting. Kudos to
J.D. Brookhart for having the guts to add a former head coach to his staff.
