Akron's strength of schedule is 326th out of 341 schools in the nation.
That is asinine, after the Zips missed out on last postseason because their schedule was too easy.
However, eight of Akron's next nine games will come against teams with a higher RPI than the Zips' number of 161...
UIC (109) @ Dayton (16) Miami (28) @ Buffalo (131) Ohio (42) Bowling Green (292 -- the exception) @ Kent State (72) @ Central Michigan (125) Toledo (117)
Akron will probably win six of those nine games, but it's probably too late to salvage any hopes of an at-large bid. Miami and Ohio certainly are in that conversation, however, with a strong MAC season.
This has been your weekly whining about Akron's weak scheduling and refusal to learn from last year.
