If the Akron Zips get a bowl spot AHEAD of us, I just might lose it.

If my memory serves me correctly, they went 6-5, lost to Middle Tennessee by 10, and had an average home attendance of 15 to 17,000 (2 games in the 7,000 range on the low side and one aberration game of 29,000 vs. Marshall). Speaking of saturation, they would be going against several other schools within short distance, including Ohio State, Miami- Ohio, Toledo, Marshall, UWV, etc. They would also be the sixth school of a weak conference to play in a bowl (hello- Sunbelt was 3-0 versus MAC in 2004).

We have a better record, better attendance, and fared better against non-conference opponents.
