MAC addendum

After I wrote that piece I noticed that good old Bill Livingston had authored an article about how the "Bad times repeat again" for Akron.

In Bill's world, 49 wins in the past two seasons, back-to-back MAC finals appearances, and a berth in this year's NIT somehow constitute bad times for the program. Also: losing to a strongly favored team the year after losing to an underdog is somehow "repeating," as is being selected for the NIT the year after not being selected. (Note: I almost wrote "qualified" but that's wrong since the Zips qualified last year but were inexplicably snubbed.)
