MAC basketball gets its coin flip

#teamcoinflip rides after all!

Can we flip the coin, please oh please?
Can we flip the coin, please oh please?

Last week we were salivating at the possibility of a coin flip to determine the MAC basketball regular season title and the No. 1 overall seed in the conference tournament. When Akron staved off Ohio in overtime, that dream full of change and random chance became shattered.

However, if you still fancy a coin flip seed determination, we have one: Ohio and Kent State women's basketball both finished 1-15 in the MAC, splitting the regular season series against one another. Both of them dropped home losses, albeit closer than expected, to superior teams; Ohio fell 66-61 to Miami while Kent State clawed back late from a noncompetitive match to fall 51-43 to Bowling Green. Because the MAC is a small world, BGSU and Miami are the No. 5 and No. 6 teams, respectively.

So the Golden Flashes and Bobcats are flipping to see who travels to which well-oiled MAC East machine for a difficult first round game. What a prize.

Also, can one of us please flip the coin? Please? We'll even bring the coin.
