2012 College Football Previews: MACtion Is Over Until The Fall

DETROIT, MI - DECEMBER 02: Former Major League Baseball player Mickey Tettleton, and father of Ohio Bobcat quarterback Tyler Tettleton #4, looks on from the stands during the MAC Championship game against the Northern Illinois Huskies at Ford Field on December 2, 2011 in Detroit, Michigan.

After 30,000 words, I still have no idea who's going to win the MAC this fall. Toledo has the recruiting rankings, Bowling Green has the experience, and just about every other team in the conference has some combination of the two. I guess Ohio should be the odds-on favorite, but only barely. Anyway, until September, here's everything you need to know about the MAC, from Chandler Harnish's silly stats, to Fruit Loops Tettleton, to why I can't help but root for Kent State and Eastern Michigan.

(By the way, I cannot tell you how frustrated I am by Temple's departure. With the 24-team Mount USA alliance faltering, I had visions of Temple and UMass becoming the eastern outposts of a new MAC, complete with Fordham, Duquesne, Albany, Villanova, Maine, James Madison and whatever other schools needed to fill a 24-team MAC. I NEED A SUPER-MID-MAJOR CONFERENCE, DAMMIT. You can't just tease me with this, then not bring it to fruition. Hell, pull in some Dakota schools, too. Make it happen.)
