MAC Showdown Sunday High Noon in Akron

Between Bowling Green and the Zips of Akron, who co-lead the East and overall conference with Buffalo with tomorrow and next week remaining in the regular season.  If the Falcons can win out (tomorrow and then next week against Miami and Ohio) they will be the #1 seed in the MAC Tournament and have in their back pocket a bid to the NIT should they fail to win all the games in Cleveland.  Which quite frankly sort of blows my mind that Bowling Green controls their own destiny this late in the season.  I mean, has the MAC ever been more mediocre?  Probably yes, but not in recent memory.  We are talking about the same Bowling Green team that just last weekend managed to lose at home to sub .500 Canisius, that lost in late December to perennial punchline Duquesne, that has lost over 10 games this season.  I don’t mean to be too critical.  Louis Orr found the cupboard rather bare when he came to northwest Ohio a couple years ago and I think he has the program going in the right direction with some good young talent.  But a team this maddeningly inconsistent and mediocre to win the conference title would be almost as preposterous as expecting the 9-7 Arizona Cardinals to win the NFC and almost pull off a Super Bowl victory.
