I don't know how to feel about Akron's No. 9 seeding. On one hand, I'm upset that the Zips didn't get the respect. On the other, I know Akron will be in the final four if it can beat a team that it already beat (Maryland). Akron doesn't and won't get respect.
Remember Akron being the only bowl-eligible team to not go to a bowl last year? Remember how the Zips had a good argument to get an at-large bid to the NCAA basketball tournament but didn't even get an NIT bid?
Oh well. If I wanted to root for the favorite every time, I would've gone to Ohio State.
