I guess my main knock against Akron is that they haven't competed the way teams like N. Ill, BGSU, and Miami of Ohio have against big schools (excluding Ohio State because a Pop Warner team would play them close). In MAC play... yea they've done well the last few years with Frye and Getsy but since 03 (Frye's junior year)...

Wisconsin...L...48-31
Penn State...L...48-10
Virginia...L...51-0
Purdue...L...49-24

Average margin of loss is 32.8 points.

That's what really bugs me. Since I'm not Sagarin though, let's leave it up to the board to decide. I don't know who else is reading this, but if Alex and whoever else says Akron is ok...I don't mind puttin' 'em in there. The lack of history is another barrier, but it's not like I'm rootin' against them Kevin. You know I'd cheer on a chess team if they were from Akron. I think they are moving in the right direction...no doubt.

04 was Brookhart's first season. He was MAC Coach of the Year too.
