You really have to wonder how stupid the NCAA is.
Akron did not receive an invitation to the NIT, despite 26 wins, a top-70 RPI, a division title, an appearance in the conference finals and seven losses by a combined 21 points.
However it happened, whatever the NCAA's reasoning, they're dead wrong.
If the Zips got in, they would have had more wins than any other team in the bracket. And no, from what I've heard, UA did not turn down an invitation.
I don't want to steal the thunder from my column tomorrow, but it's time UA's athletic department considers some drastic changes. This is b.s. and Akron's coaches, players and fans deserve 100 times better.
I'll have more on this once I cool down.
