MAC EAST 2017预览

野牛:

对牛市来说,情况还会变得更糟吗?兰斯和船员们又度过了令人失望的一年,以2-10的成绩结束了比赛;同时也被认为是英国最糟糕的进攻,平均354码,16.5分。听着,这是水牛的底线…泰瑞·约翰逊必须上场。公牛队失去了他们的头号劲敌乔丹·约翰逊,这对球队的发展也没有任何帮助。不过,让我们把重点放在职业球员上,而不是抨击布法罗的进攻…泰里回来了,他有了6尺7的体格,增加了肌肉,球员的深度和战术,他只能继续提高。公牛队进攻最好的部分是他们在进攻线上恢复了4名先发,同时还增加了一名来自罗格斯大学的截锋。在防守上,他们找回了前六名抢断者,这对上赛季苦苦挣扎的球队来说是件好事。 Adding to that, nearly all of the back 7 return for Buffalo, besides Boise Ross who is a huge loss for the secondary. Ultimately Khalil Hodge is going to be the anchor of this defense and is what will keep them in games. Maybe. Lastly touching on special teams, punter Kyle Deween posted below a 40 yard average which put buffalo's defense in bad spots most of the year- he'll need to improve on that in his senior campaign. Mitcheson posted sub 60% on FG tries last year and really struggling from 40 on out. They'll need him to turn that misfortune around as I predict the offense to stall out a large majority of the time.

亚克朗市:

去年,在取得了节目历史上的第一个碗的胜利后,拉链队令人失望的一年;5 - 7。在去年,很多人都认为阿克伦是赢得麦克东区冠军的有力争夺者,但是阿克伦四分卫的伤病让这种期望落空了。今年的结局也令人失望……以5-3开局,他们只需要赢下最后四场比赛中的一场,而在这四场比赛中,他们并没有赢。展望未来,它可能是光明的。阿克伦返回伍德森和查普曼四分卫,这应该意味着成功,因为他们互相恭维对方的弱点。从字面上说,他们又找回了沃伦-鲍尔,俄亥俄州转会来的跑锋,他去年因为受伤坐了下来。听着,阿克伦是一个喜欢把球投到他们狡猾的外野的球队;但是今年他们将会有一个二维进攻,这可能是联盟中令人震惊的最好的进攻之一。 Defensively, they better hope they don't face a good passing attack... They'll have to replace 3 guys from the secondary. However they return stud linebacker Ulysees Gilbert which will be their leader. This will be Akron's weak point- which has not seem to recover from their dominate defense back in 2015. Moving on to the specialist, Akron better find themselves a punter, otherwise if i were them i would just go for it on fourth down. However they do have a weapon in Thomas O'leary who was 90% last season, however 8 of his 10 makes came inside of 39 yards.

博林格林:

马特·约翰逊还有什么资格吗?去年保龄格林一开始表现很差,但是他设法以4胜8负结束了这个赛季,这给了他对下个赛季的希望。在进攻端,他们只赢回6个,而在进攻线上输掉3个。让我先说一下……詹姆斯·摩根可能是我们联盟中最被低估的投枪手。是的,是的,是的,我知道他是二年级学生,但他很有天赋。我真的很喜欢BG今年在摩根、WR明星斯科特·米勒、克利夫兰和威尔逊的进攻,都由未来的NFL球员蒂姆·麦考利夫担任中锋。现在来看坏消息。除了和肯特的比赛,BG的防守在去年几乎每场比赛都很可怜。一个挣扎的防守可能会变得更糟,因为他们将不得不替换5个首发,还有伟大的拦截者阿尔瓦雷斯离开。 The good news is that not many teams in the MAC play defense, so BG is just following suite. Special teams wise BG is home to a future DRAFTED PUNTER Joe Davidson. They should let this kid play every position... He will be what can help the weak defensive out by giving them good field position.

俄亥俄州:

你最后一次做坏事是什么时候?我也不记得了。前一队喝醉了的弗兰克·索利奇(Frank Solich)创造了MAC缺少的东西——一致性。只有两个先发球员在进攻端输掉了。我想看到你做的一件事就是不要再踢那么多该死的界外球了,把它们变成触地得分。去年的进攻太多次停滞不前,迫使他们不得不踢FGs;对他们来说,足够幸运的是Louie Zervous是自动的,即使他的29个射门有22个来自39码内。在防守上,他们又恢复了去年的一流防守。唯一的输球是在他们必须替换的时候,但是在去年看了几场比赛之后,他们希望有足够的深度来替换。最后,除了北京大学的戴维森,你还有下一个最致命的客户迈克尔·法卡斯。

肯特州立:

达雷尔·哈泽尔会回来吗?如果保罗·海恩斯今年不能参加碗赛,我就会推测……(剧透,他不会回来了)。退一步说,这支肯特队去年就应该有资格进入碗赛,是的,我是认真的。他们以3-9结束,输给了D1-AA(见鬼的肯特…)NC A&T在三场比赛中,在最后一分钟的一次远射中输给了阿克伦,在最后一分钟的另一次远射中又输给了迈阿密,这一切都应该让他们的比分变成6-6。这支球队还不错!好了,本来可以发生的事已经够多了。肯特在进攻端并没有真正的四分卫作为首发…这有点像委员会的四分卫。尼克·霍利,他们最好的球员是可能的选择。 He brings more of a running style/wildcat in which they have difficulty in converting on third down passing downs. He throws just as good as a freshmen high schooler. However, they are returning 10 starters which could spell for some success. The main loss in LT Reno Reda. Lastly, they do also return stud sophomore running back Justin Rankin; when healthy, Holley and Rankin in the back field was deadly. Defensively Kent is usually one of the best in the conference. Look for that to continue again this year, especially against the pass. CB Jerrell Foster and Demetrius Monday will cause havoc for opposing quarterbacks. Special teams wise, they return both Hynes and Adams. Adams last year posted just below 41 yards per punt as a freshmen, which I would believe to improve for the coming year. As for Hynes, he may be the most clutch kicker in the league, hitting 2 FGs in overtime from 40+ and then hitting a game winner @ CMU; however he needs to improve his kick offs.


迈阿密:

从0-6的低谷到去年6-7的低谷,几乎击败了SEC的强队密西西比州立大学。联盟第二好的QB球员格斯-拉格兰能继续他离开的地方吗?还是去年的结束只是运气?拉格兰将会是一个不错的搭档,因为有8名首发回归,其中4名来自锋线,他们的头号射手阿隆佐·史密斯,以及拉格兰最喜欢的目标詹姆斯·加德纳。我想说的是,在托莱多之后,迈阿密可能会打出最多的防守端,但是进攻会更加平衡。总的来说,这可能是联盟中最好的进攻。他们进攻的一个缺点是踢球的方式,因为他们需要替换尼克·多德,因为他转换到球的状态(管他呢?)接下来是查克·马丁的辩护,情况更妙了……它们也返回8。更重要的是,我认为他将成为联盟年度最佳防守球员,小麦克马伦。 Really the only downside you could say to this defense is that they will need to replace their edge rushers who combined for nearly half their sacks in 2016. It just keeps getting better... Miami will also return Kyle Kramer who averaged nearly 42 yards per punt which will put their defense in even better spots; as if they need it... The big test for Miami will come in week one, when they travel to Marshall. That is where I think we will see if Miami's finish was luck, or if they are for real this year.
