Miami's Clayton Mullins

Prognosticators at Lindy's College Football Preview Magazine say that 2008 will be a memorable season for Miami University's football team.

The magazine predicts that Coach Shane Montgomery's RedHawks are the team to beat in the Mid-American Conference's East Division, edging out Kent State, Bowling Green and others. Lindy's says that Miami will face Central Michigan in a repeat of the 2007 MAC Championship game.

Individually, Lindy's indicated that senior linebacker Clayton Mullins (Fairborn) was their favorite to repeat as the MAC's Defensive Player of the Year. Mullins was joined by senior punter JAKE RICHARDSON (Oxford) and senior offensive tackle Dave DiFranco (LaGrange) on the preseason first-team. Senior defensive end Joe Coniglio (Rockford, Ill.) and senior linebacker Joey Hudson (Piqua) were members of Lindy's second-team MAC all-star squad.

Lindy's ranked college football's best units at each position and Miami's linebacking trio of Mullins, Hudson and Caleb Bostic (Jr., Galloway) was rated as the nation's ninth-best crew, behind Southern California, Ohio State, South Carolina, Virginia, Wake Forest, California, Florida and Georgia. Richardson was ranked by Lindy's as college football's eighth-best punter.

Miami's 2008 football campaign begins on August 28 when it entertains Southeastern Conference foe Vanderbilt. The rest of the home schedule finds Charleston Southern (Sept. 13), Temple (Oct. 4), Kent State (Oct. 25), Ball State (Nov. 11) and Ohio (Nov. 28) coming to Oxford.
