Akron won another at home Sunday afternoon, beating Bowling Green 3-0. I wonder if the Falcons would consider an Omar Jacobs for Ross McKenzie swap. In the end, it wouldn't make sense for us. Bowling Green's star quarterback is not going to win BG a national championship. McKenzie might do that for Akron.
Akron has two regular-season tests remaining - Northern Illinois at home Friday and Indiana at their place on Nov. 3. NIU is ranked top-20 in the nation. Indiana is the defending national champion and ranked top-15 this year. In two weeks, Akron also will host Michigan - the team that knocked the Zips out of the NCAA Tournament last year. They play three other games that don't worry me as long as they can take care of business like they did Sunday versus BG.
