The Central Michigan Chippewas were picked by the Media to finish fourth
in the MAC West Division with 240 votes. The Chippewas return 15
starters (seven offensive, seven defensive and a kicker) among 38
returning lettermen from a 1999 squad that finished 4-7 (3-5 in the MAC)
and fifth place in the competitive MAC West. Plus they have a new head
coach. Listen to head coach Mike DeBord and view returning player
