Belt Loops: Akron Football Is Still Going To Be Bad Next Year

• Bill Connelly is rolling through his 124 FBS previews and, because it's early in April, he's already on Akron:

Akron is playing for 2014; they have quite a few interesting, young pieces in quarterback Kyle Pohl, running back Jawon Chisholm, guard Travis Switzer, the entire defensive line, linebackers Williams and March, free safety Devonte Morgan and others. But there are still more than a few growing pains to overcome before optimism sets in.

So ... yeah. Enjoy the next two dadgum years! [SB Nation]

• Ball State needs a better pass rush, don't you think? [Star Press]

• It could've been a bad year for coaching in the MAC, but Terry Pluto points out that not only with returning Jim Christian and not losing Keith Dambrot, the conference did quite well. [Cleveland.com]

• Toledo track athlete Emma Kertesz ran a 33:28:58 in the 10,000-meter, which is a new MAC record and also gives her a spot to complete at the USA Olympic Trials. [Toledo Blade]

• Oh, and the MAC is hosting the NCAA Women's Bowling Championship, which begins tomorrow in Clevleand. The eight teams: Arkansas State, Central Missouri, Fairleigh Dickinson, Maryland-Eastern Shore, Nebraska, Sacred Heart, Valparaiso, and Vanderbilt. UMES won it last year but Arkansas State is the top-ranked team this year. Catch bowling fever, everyone! [MAC-Sports]
