An Akron – Ohio Final…should be a good one

A week ago, any team in the Mid American Conference would have been well within their rights to stroll down the glass slipper aisle at their local Foot Locker just to see if 2010 edition possibly came in their size.  As of tonight though, only two teams find themselves in a position to be fitted.  And while similar in their opportunities to represent their conference in the field of 65, those two teams couldn’t be more different.
