    I'm going with:

    1. Hillsdale
    2. Tiffin
    3. Findlay
    4. Alderson Broaddus
    5. Ohio Dominican
    6. Walsh
    7. Kentucky Wesleyan
    8. Lake Erie

    I have no reasoning behind these picks and will probably change them later but at least I posted. Come on people, at least make an effort.

    Your ranking looks pretty good to me, although I'm hoping Alderson Broaddus will finish higher up. Hope springs eternal and all that.

    Remember Kentucky Wesleyan has a new Coach in former University of Kentucky Player, Craig Yeast. Not only does Coach Yeast have SEC Conference experience, he also played in the NFL for the Cincinnati Bengals and the New York Jets. I am not sure what kind of season they will have this season, but next season they are going to be a top tier team. I would place KWC at No. 5 this season, and possibly sneak in at 4. I think Coach Yeast will be that good.

    How does he change a 3-7 team ( 20-33 last 5 years) into a contender after 2 hs HC jobs and 1 college AC job. What am I missing ?

    Not sure, looked at this years schedule. Beyond LEC, I guess Quincy and SW Baptist could be winnable. They actually have a chance to be 3-1 before they most likely lose the last 7.

    There is a lot to like about Yeast if you are Kentucky Wesleyan. One, he has been a winner wherever he has gone. It isn't like he has failed at any stop. Two, he played for Hal Mumme at Kentucky. The coaching tree for Mumme is quite good.....Leach (HC-Washington State), Holgorson (HC-former WVU/ current Houston), Dykes/Franklin (Cal), Neal Brown (WVU HC). Those guys are real innovators and win at the college level. Granted, Yeast did not coach for Mumme, but he played successfully for him and has shown the ability to take those concepts and win. He also has playing experience at the NFL level and Canadian League. I am sure he picked up a lot of good things over the years from all of his stops.

    As OC at Franklin College, Yeast's offense was pretty potent to say the least. Last year, they averaged 225 running yards per game and 333 passing yards per game. That is pretty salty. In 2017, they averaged 564 yards per game in total offense and had 4478 passing yards. Some may say that is D-III, but there are some similarities between D-II and D-III.

    At the high school level, he won. He took Bryan Station to the 2nd round of the playoffs. At Freemont Ross in Ohio, he went 7-3 and took them to the Ohio stats playoffs. He won and he produced whether it be an OC or a HS head coach. What would you want??? Kentucky Wesleyan hasn't had that to be quite frank. Bringing in a winner is what you want. You need someone with a fresh approach, a winning approach, has some quality experiences and brings in an exciting brand of football. They have a nice facility and are in a city with reasonable size. Alumni and fans should expect more out of their program. This should be an exciting hire. He returns two QBs from last year, 3 of their top 5 receivers and 2 of their top 3 rushers. He has some components in the toolbox to work with.

    Other than the top two or three programs in the G-MAC, the rest are beatable to be truthful. It isn't like Lake Erie, ABU, Walsh aren't beatable. Yes, Frostburg State was good at D-III but they are making a transition. That is a winnable game for KWC among a few other OOC games.

    Here are the current computer rankings for all GMAC teams, top 4 pretty competitive, huge gap after that.

    So KYW is 148 of 167, they play 160, 138, 115, 108, 98, #7 in NAIA. So I guess they could win some?
