The Mid-American Conference was founded as a five-school league in 1946 with Ohio, Butler, Cincinnati, Wayne State and Western Reserve as the charter members. In 52 years, the MAC has grown in ways that its founders could not have imagined while standing the test of time. As the nation's sixth-oldest Division I conference in the nation, the MAC has been among the trendsetters. The MAC has been in the forefront of national legislation that has enhanced the academic integrity of intercollegiate athletics. The MAC strengthened admittance standards, established an academic progress rule and set increased grade point average requirements long before the NCAA adopted or discussed implementing such academic standards. The MAC was the first and is still the only Division I-A conference to have its own Hall of Fame. Over its 52 years, the MAC has produced a long list of great athletes and administrators from all corners of the sports world. A list that includes Olympic gold medalists, Major League Baseball, NFL and NBA standouts, PGA standouts, national-caliber game officials and Hall of Fame coaches and players. Since 1988, a total of 52 individuals has been inducted.
