Akron's game will be on Time Warner channel 311.
Even though Buffalo has Ball State's fans outnumbered, the number of Bulls fans is modest. No matter who wins between Akron and Bowling Green, that team will have much more fan support.
Humpty Hitchens probably won't play tonight. He would have played more last night, but he tweaked his ankle after just four minutes on the floor. The team brought in an ankle specialist to work with Hitchens. His name is Dick Hartzell, and he is known for inventing Flex Band, which is a system of rubber bands for physical training.
After Buffalo's win, Bulls fans chanted, "Just like football." I always love that chant. I looked back at Akron's graduated tight end/longsnapper Brian Flaherty, who was shaking his head in the stands. Reggie Witherspoon's team is the second Buffalo squad to compete for a MAC Championship. Who would have thought that Buffalo would rise to the elite so surreptitiously? Flaherty, by the way, has been taking grad classes in business management and working out for Wednesday's Pro Day.
