MAC media members have conducted their polls and the results were announced just before MAC Media Day kicked off at Ford Field in Detroit. Here's what they came up with:

[School (1st place votes) Points]

East:

1. Ohio (15) 164

2. Bowling Green (8) 154

3. Kent State (1) 119

4. Buffalo (1) 101

5. Miami 78

6. Akron 53

7. UMass 29

West:

1. Northern Illinois (16) 138- Selected to win MAC Championship

2. Toledo (5) 122

3. Ball State (3) 108

4. Central Michigan (1) 67

5. Western Michigan 61

6. Eastern Michigan 29

What do you guys think? Did the MAC media members get it right? Is Kent State too low? Would you flip Akron/UMass? And who's the funny guy that picked Central over NIU?
