  2. 2018 Schedule Released

    Well since he wants to take a "peak" at the Zips and ends it with a mention of a bowl "birth" I'm not going to put a lot of stock into his analytical capabilities either.

  6. 2018 Preseason

    I just don't see a defense that's returning 10 starters finishing 5th. No chance. If Kato makes the jump you'd expect from a QB entering his 3rd year in the program, we should vie for a championship again this season. The two freshman OL's (Kelly and Fonte) will need to step in right away if we're going to have a great season. That's a lot to ask from Freshmen, but that's the situation. Hope they are as good as advertised.

    Yep, I thought Edwards did a good job on kickoff returns so this is where I'd use him (in addition to being a player coach type). Sands was decent at punt returns, but based on seniority he may not be back there (I'd put him there though). My thought would be to start Sands, but rely heavily on White and Alce to take two thirds of the carries till someone makes it clear that they are 'the guy'. That way, with a reduced workload, Sands may not end up on the the injured list and we would have fresh legs in there at all times. Risky playing true freshman I know, but I think we have to do it.
  8. 2018 Preseason

    Not terrible for this time of the year. I'm going to stick by what coach Bowden told me a month ago about "averaging closer to 175 yds running per game", and repeat, our season's success will depend heavily upon an improved running attack this year. Nice to see Abraham Alce on the "freshman of the year" award list. Hopefully the All-MAC Prospectus : Preseason 2019 Team will feature some offensive Zip starters.
  9. 2018 Preseason

    I'm right there with you, but I think I have a little more respect for Miami and Buffalo than you. IMO, its a 4 team race for the East (with BGSU and Kent being clearly below everyone). So we could easily finish 4th, though it would be disappointing. I don't even think OU is on a different level anymore. Beware of the Buffalo QB being hyped as the next Josh Allen this year...its already happening. He may not even be the best QB on his team. IIRC the back up came in last year and broke records. I too feel like the program is finally at a point where while we do have question marks, I don't think we have many holes (at least I hope not as the question marks do have talent) and are finally accumulating depth behind the starters.
  10. 2018 Preseason

    OK LZip I'm bored and I'll bite. I don't care for many of these predictions. I don't think we are a fifth place team in the East. I agree we have many question marks, especially on offense, but I don't think Buffalo, BGSU or Miami are better than us. All were picked ahead of us. I do think OU is probably better. That being said we can beat all of them. To my way of thinking this predictor does not know what we have ready to put out on the field. They are unproven in many spots, but they are quality now, not like the Akron teams of old. This will be a challenging year for us. Yet we have weapons, depth and a growing sense of confidence. We are not fifth.

    pretty meh predictions, IMO, but something to discuss in this long-ass offseason. https://macprospectus.com/2018/07/17/mac-football-preseason-team-predictions-2018/

  15. Attention old folks

    Z.I.P., it was indeed a long time ago. Our pool was at the south end of Memorial Hall and rumor was that records set there didn't count because the length wasn't officially 25 yards. But that was only a rumor. Can't help on the last year of men's swimming.
  16. Attention old folks

    I know it was after 1976 which is when I departed Ohio.

  19. https://www.ncaa.com/news/soccer-men/article/2018-07-13/9-best-places-watch-college-soccer-according-fans Pretty cool, especially when you narrow it down knowing that several other stadiums only host women's programs.
  20. Attention old folks

    I remember that name -- vaguely! 72 R-O-O, I couldn't find what was the last year for men's swimming -- but I recall it was while I was a student. Around 1980? Anyone?
  21. Attention old folks

    Thanks 72, After my original post, a couple of brain cells fired up, but I had no luck googling "Andy Malook."
  22. ...Louisville and Virginia had offered full-ride scholarships, but Akron’s could only cover a portion of his tuition. But the Zips were coming off a National Championship, and had just had seven players selected in the first round of Major League Soccer’s annual college draft. “Obviously if you wanted to be a professional, Akron was the school to go to at the time,” Yedlin said. “So I'm happy I made that decision.” ...
  23. I saw this advertised on ESPN last night at halftime of the LAFC-PTFC match. Have not yet watched it. Happy to see DeAndre, Vicki, and Ira as well as Akron in this feature.
