CMU community reacts to MAC's return


The Central Michigan football team enters Kelly/Shorts Stadium before its game against Akron Sept. 14.

Kelly/Shorts Stadium remained silent while stadiums across the country either had some fans or artificial crowd noise echoing off empty seats. 

But the lights on Kelly/Shorts Stadium will be able to shine bright. There will be fall football.

The Mid-American Conference announced in a statement Friday that the fall season will begin on Nov. 4 and conclude either on Dec. 18 or 19 with the conference championship game at Ford Field in Detroit.

Here are Twitter reactions from Central Michigan players, coaches and personalities throughout the community reacting to the news:
