With the season right around the corner, I decided it was time to start the conference by conference breakdowns.
X Southern Illinois 9-2 7-1 – Only slipping up once in conference and owning a win over UNI, SIU earns the MVFC auto-bid.
Y Northern Iowa 9-2 7-1 – Northern Iowa returns to the playoffs with an at-large bid.
Y Illinois State 9-2 6-2 – Illinois State makes their return to the playoffs with at at-large bid.
Z North Dakota State 7-4 5-3 – NDSU is a bubble candidate for their first playoff appearance.
South Dakota State 6-5 5-3 – The Jacks fall a little short this year.
Youngstown State 6-5 4-4 – The Penguins are rebuilding, just a year away from contention.
Indiana State 3-8 1-7 – The Sycamores take a step in the right direction.
Western Illinois 2-9 1-7 – Bad situations in Macomb carry over to 2010. Maybe the healing can begin.
Missouri State 1-10 1-7 – Terry Allen says his goodbyes and cleans out his office.
