MVC Season 43 Preview West Division
1st Place Illinois State coached by joehuskie84 with 110.97 rating
Our second and final lock for the national tournament is Illinois State. As you all can note I did predict myself to finish in 4th last year so believe that I am not blowing smoke. These guards can flat out play. Bunker is inredible at PG and Hayes is a super soph. Eaddy and Williams are my Denham Brown and Rashad Anderson chemistry guys. The bigs are unspectacular but young and will improve with the playing time they will receive. Teams would be wise to challenge us to beat them down low.
2nd Place Northern Iowa coached by j_corva with 107.82
This team will play in the post season but it will take a surprise conference tournament championship to pull off a national tournament bid. As you all will notice Wichita State is finally on the down turn and j_corva is sure to benefit. Adeyemo is the point man and has The superstar Norman Vitela to join him in the backcourt. Mauk, Walls and Ridenour provide a big man trio that is sure to reek havoc in the conference.
3rd place Wichita State coached by sim with 107.82 (they lose by 3rd decimal)
This team no longer has a coach and hopefully soon will no longer have a soul. I am sick of losing to them and will be happy to see them start the decline. The previous coach was a primadonna and scheduled an impossible schedule. There is no way they make it to the post season. Superstars Flood and Leffler are gone and have left the team to Dustin Wyble to do it all by himself. Owen Goslin and Levi Peterson will help a bit but the superstars are long gone after Wyble this year.
4th place Gardner-Webb coached by sslats with 107.15
I’ll give this team an outside chance of making the postseason invitational. Bonner is the rock at PG. Roddy and Nordquist will be missed. Cartsens and Hawkins will help in the backcourt but they just don’t have the same talent as last years group. Big men Blackstone, Nickerson and Blake are all talented and will help GW cause trouble.
5th place Western Kentucky coached by dabner with 101.65
Welcome welcome to the new coach in the MVC. WKY was abandoned for a while so we know its going to take time but building a contender in the west takes a lot of time and recruits. Good and White are gone and this years stars just do not exist. Loren Bronk may be the best player. This team is really bad.
Last place Missouri State coached by discodave with 99.01
They are 2-1 as I write this so hopefully I won’t be eating my type at the end of the season. Damon Taylor is the best player and Bundy isn’t bad. I picked Missouri State to have a down year last year and I was wrong so it will probably happen again. With the numbers I just don’t see it. I don’t see how they can finish any higher than 5th but who the heck knows.
Hope you all enjoyed my new system of season preview. I am sure some of you will have your complaints. Stay tuned for the all conference teams and all defensive teams. Hope you enjoy.
