How can you put Kent St. and Akron without including the best team in the MAC. (unless you were assuming Ohio was going to win the MAC so you just didn't include them in your bubble teams)

i see the MAC as a two bid league possibly..... Ohio is still iffy imo. They do have Leon Williams but he has regressed since a great freshman campaign and Jerome Tillman plays a similar power game but is undersized. Kent St. is well, Kent St. They have won 20 games the past couple of seasons and Jim Christian is a good coach. They would get recognition this year. A win against NC would have helped their cause though. If not a 2 bid league, then a 1 bid league with 2 NIT
