2017 Central Michigan Chippewas Best Case Scenario
CMU starts out the season with an easy win over Rhode Island, and follows it up with a win at Kansas to set the tone for a big first half of the season. After a shootout loss at Syracuse, it starts out the MAC season with a win over Miami University, and makes a huge statement with a win at Ohio a few weeks later.
The home win over Toledo puts the Chippewas in the driver’s seat for the West, and it cements their place with a big win over Western Michigan. There are a few MAC losses along the way – like at Ball State, or against Northern Illinois – but it won’t matter with enough key wins to take the division.
2017 Central Michigan Chippewas Worst Case Scenario
Losses at Kansas, Syracuse and Boston College are bad enough, but a loss at Ohio puts the pressure on for the second half of the season. With a loss to Toledo, and a defeat at Western Michigan, there’s no more margin for error to get to six wins and a bowl game. The home loss to Northern Illinois at the end of the regular season makes it a losing campaign.
