#27 Coaches Poll
#32 AP Poll
And they should get even more votes tomorrow...could even be ranked in the Coaches Poll.
If they finish 27-5 with a top 40 RPI, they absolutely have a shot. I'd prefer to just win in Cleveland and not have to sweat it though.
It would be logical that they would be in the discussion, but their RPI is going to fall throughout the reason of the season and should they lose to Ohio or Kent St (or somehow to anybody else) that is going to really do them in. Problem is their resume isn't impressive. They have only one good win OOC, and as a mid major you can't have your high quality win be against another mid major. And they also have two awful losses to Detroit and CC. Even the Creighton loss isn't looking too good as they struggle down the pike.
Had Ohio played a really good season, Akron may have had a chance. But since there isn't a strong #2 in the MAC, they are going to have to win it.
It would be really cool to see them ranked finally though, should be close as you said.
