News On The Horizon 11/27/2010

Mid-Majority Chat Block, Episode 703--The Mid-Majority


[Comment From Mike M. Mike M. : ]
Anybody out there surprising you so far, positively or negatively? Loyola Chicago's 6-0 start raised a few eyebrows with me.

Seriously, good for Loyola. We're headed out there to check them out next week. But look at who the Ramblers have played: SWAC, Great West, low Valley, etc. The SOS is not very high at all, but the fact that this hasn't been a factor team in the Horizon makes it impressive. Same situation with Cleveland State, but that's a more impressive start as far as I'm concerned. Vikings are 6-0 too, but have beaten both ends of the Kent-Akron MAC axis and a very good Iona team that could win the MAAC. All of this adds up to one thing: Butler isn't going undefeated in the league this year.

Any impressions on the Michigan Mid Major Coaches' Sons Uber Recruits? Or MMMCSUB for short?

First of all, Trey Ziegler is the truth. The way that CMU team is, he's going to get a lot of touches, and he's been doing a lot with them so far. As for Ray McCallum Jr., he had a great game against Mississippi State that I caught a tiny bit of. He wasn't instant impact for Detroit, but that game showed that he could really be a factor. After all, the first thing he said when he signed was "I want to beat Butler."

6:00pm St. Bonaventure @ Cleveland State – Andrew Nicholson and Matthew Wright may have their hands full when they take the floor against Cleveland State. The CSU Vikings are 6-0 right now and may be the best of the Horizon League right now. The Bonnies’ Nicholson has been on a tear through the first four games and he will need to come up big on both ends in this one to fend off the Vikings.
