    1. Live! From studio B Everyone's Favorite Conference Network, it's this week's Chart of Dubious Value! Ladies and gentlemen, did you think there wasn't enough change? Were the not enough green and red numbers for your taste? We've got your fix! Remember, you should probably vote if you don't like your ranking. And play well. That too. MAC Power Rankings After Week 5 Rank (Poll Pts.) Team (First Place Votes) Record (Conf. Record) Streak Change from Last Week 1 (47) #24 Western Michigan Broncos (3) 3-0 (2-0) W3 - 2 (45) #15 Toledo Rockets (1) 3-1 (1-0) L1 -1 3 (39) Akron Zips 2-2 (1-1) W1 +2 4 (36) Miami (OH) Redhawks 3-1 (2-0) L1 -1 5 (31) Ohio Bobcats 3-1 (2-1) L1 -2 6-tie (26) Ball State Cardinals 2-2 (1-1) W2 +2 6-tie (26) Buffalo Bulls 2-2 (0-1) W1 +1 8-tie (19) Bowling Green Falcons 2-2 (0-1) W2 +1 8-tie (19) Central Michigan Chippewas 2-2 (1-1) L2 -2 10 (11) Eastern Michigan Eagles 0-3 (0-1) L3 - 11 (8) Northern Illinois Huskies 0-3 (0-2) L3 - 12 (5) Kent State Golden Flashes 0-4 (0-1) L4 - Numbers of voters: 4 12 points awarded for first, 11 for second, etc. We don't think we've seen this before. A team ranked higher in the Coaches Poll ranked lower in the Power Rankings. Is it that Toledo has a one in the loss column and Western doesn't? Is it that Toledo's starting left tackle is out until Week 11 or so? Who knows? But the numbers are what they are, and so these are the results. We also don't think we've seen two ties before - we certainly don't recall seeing two back to back like this. Ball State and Bowling Green are riding the waves of good play to surf on up the rankings, forcing ties with Buffalo and Central Michigan respectively. We haven't forgotten about Akron. This season's MAC Team No One Can Figure Out (previous winners: 2020 Kent State, 2019 Akron) doubled up Ohio in the first half en route to a thrilling 40-35 win. The voters haven't forgotten either, shooting them past the Bobcats and a Redhawk team that barely fell to Air Force. This Week's Slate is a full one: Thursday Night New Mexico State (0-4) at Bowling Green (2-2)Ball State (2-2) at Central Michigan (2-2)* Friday Night Northern Illinois (0-3) at Kent State (0-4)* Saturday Morning Miami (OH) (3-1) at Akron (2-2)* Buffalo (2-2) at Western Michigan (3-0)* Toledo (3-1) at Eastern Michigan (0-3)* Saturday Afternoon Ohio (3-1) at Hawaii (1-2) The Network's Pick to Click: Miami (OH) (3-1) at Akron (2-2). A critical battle that gives the winner a big leg up in the MAC East division race. "If it's not MAC, it's wack!"
    2. New CFBHC Wiki Updates

      Was already done before this thread started, but: Main page set up. Portals for CFBHC, NFLHC, and NHLHC are moved. Note that certain templates are still redlinked (e.g. Article of the day). That's fine, as more of the secondary content moves and/or users create more content we'll get to those. NFLHC and CFBHC stats moved and set up. Current season stats for both NFL and CFB still link to forum threads. Probably working on moving CFBHC then NFLHC season pages next, then moving/creating the rest of the standings templates for those pages as needed.
    3. New CFBHC Wiki Updates

      The new wiki is a completely blank slate, so the only things there are what we brought over or created. We're porting stuff from the old pages which were moved to wikia, but we're not using wikia as per Soluna. All the pages, etc. are still there to be brought over. However, any pictures that were on the old dead wiki are gone. Speaking for myself, I don't have a set schedule/plan. But I am going to work on the bigger community pages first - NFLHC/CFBHC/NHLHC seasons, hubs/portal, drafts, things like that - plus the occasional MAC and other conference things from time to time. You're more than welcome to grab your old team/season pages and whatever you find and bring them over.
    4. New CFBHC Wiki Updates

      January 16: Thanks to @Isaac829 fixing the Conference standings templates, FBS conferences are now available for updating on the 2021 CFBHC season page. If your conference statsheet had standings your template was updated accordingly, otherwise you're starting from scratch. If you already had a template created, it was not touched.
    5. New CFBHC Wiki Updates

      As many of you know, it's rough sledding migrating info to the new wiki due to the inability to do massive page transfers at once. We are instead having to copy/paste a lot of information. Therefore, this thread is to update as major parts of the old wiki are moved over.
    6. [2021] MWC Recruiting Update #1

      ...does coming in last recruiting-wise mean you get stripped of your logo in the Mountain West? I like it.
    7. So I got bored, didn't feel like working on my normal media stuff, made a recruit commit spreadsheet, and fell WAY down the rabbit hole. So I had to share this so I could justify my life over the last eight hours or so. This isn't to step on @TazerMan's excellent recruiting analysis articles (of which he really should publish the latest one...), but a pure look at MAC croot numbers. Accio tl;dr chart!

Higher rating indicates readiness of player to start. It does NOT necessarily indicate probability of long-term success. **Position-neutral does not adjust for player position, i.e. a Kicker is considered as valuable as a QB. (I tried to include the positional adjustments as per the Team rating sheet, but it got really messy. Really messy. So they were excluded.) The full sheet is here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1wmlL77pxKCJyluKgN94KdW955pnXOCpf0h84FNoIfhw/edit?usp=sharing. You're welcome to copy the sheet and use it for your own conference or purposes. Features/Notes: A tidbit about each team, looking at the sheets: Except for a 4-star long-snapper, every signed recruit is a 3 or 3.5-star. The Zips look to be using this class to build much-needed depth. None of Ball State's signed players come from a home state, border state, or pipeline state. The only MAC school to not currently have a commit rated 3.5-stars or better. This is your school on coachless recruiting. Any questions? To this point, every commit is a 1/3.5. Central Michigan stayed close to home; only one commit is from out of state and he's from neighboring Ohio. The Eagles have the only Athlete in the entire MAC recruiting cycle. Quality over quantity? Only two recruits but they have the highest star average. All three commits are in-state players who will man the trenches on both sides of the ball. The Huskies also didn't venture far from home, with their only out of state player a medium-floor/low-ceiling tackle from Minnesota. The Bobcats have the highest average player rating (4.08), suggesting a tendency to go after polished high school players even if their potential is capped. The Rockets are third in the average player rating (3.68). However, their average stars per commit (3.79) is second-highest, so they have commits with 4 and 5-star potential and not just players starting at 2+ skill. (Or it could be both) The Broncos have currently pulled in the most wide receivers, with three. More numbers by position and potential. How are we doing as a conference? Offense Defense Special Teams/Athlete Ask away if you have any questions or comments!

      You're approved for the Bowling Green Falcons! Request here for Bowling Green's logo as your avatar picture. Once your account has been elevated you will gain access to the shoutbox and the private conference subforum. The 2021 CFBHC season has been underway for a few weeks. Your 2021 roster can be seen here. Place your depth chart here; if you are not sure to how to properly format the chart, look here. Make sure to request an account on the interface, that's where we handle gameplanning and recruiting (Make sure to choose CFBHC, not CBBHC!). Recruiting is currently underway, with the first few weeks already in the books, so you'll definitely want to read up on how that works. You are expected to maintain Bowling Green's Wiki page. If you are inexperienced with wiki editing, that's OK, the template is already established for you. You are also responsible for individual season pages for each year. You can use Western Michigan's 2021 season page as an example there. Don't mind the weird formatting, the Wiki is in the process of migrating, so there are still some bugs to work out. Feel free to PM me with any questions regarding this. If you have any further questions, concerns, or comments don't hesitate to ask in the chat or message me directly. There's a lot to catch up on, coach, and you're starting out in a hole.... Also, because this sim requires timely interaction, be aware that if you are inactive for 14 consecutive days or fail to perform recruiting duties for your school for two weeks during the season that can be grounds for losing your team. Welcome to and to !

      GG Rome! Feels good to get another win under our belts! Our defense really jumped all over the Texans, and our OL showed what they can do when healthy. Enough of that though, time to prep for the next game.
