  2. Zips—2019 NFL Draft

    Yet another reason for me to shake my head, ponder the mediocrity and utter to myself "what the hell?"

    For you youngsters, "Boogie Nights" was a classic 70's disco song, long before the name was given to the 90's movie. Pardon the bad sync of music and video. It was the 70's. All about dancing, not production values.

  5. Zips—2019 NFL Draft

    K Brown article https://dawindycity.com/2019/04/23/chicago-bears-nfl-draft-kyron-brown/ Zips haven't had 2 players drafted in the same draft. Let alone 3 right?!
  6. It would be surprising if the work was done correctly. There is nothing unusual about pouring concrete at that time of year. They just add antifreeze to the mix.
  7. Zips—2019 NFL Draft

    Normally I would partially laugh at the idea of the Zips participating in celebrating Day 3 of the Draft, but with John Dorsey as GM of the Browns, Day 3 matters. Plus, it gives Arth and the program some exposure.
  8. Zips—2019 NFL Draft

    https://gozips.com/news/2019/4/23/akron-football-to-participate-in-akrons-draft-day-experience-on-saturday.aspx The University of Akron football will participate in the City of Akron’s celebration of the Draft Day Experience on Saturday, April 27, from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. at Lock 3 (200 South Main Street). The Zips will join City officials in announcing a 2019 NFL Draft pick on Day 3 live during the national telecast as a part of the NFL’s 13 original cities. Akron’s head coach Tom Arth and Director of Athletics Larry Williams, both former NFL players, are slated to participate. At Lock 3, fans will be treated to big screen television coverage as well as games, inflatables, and food trucks. The event is FREE.
  9. Baseball's Coming Back

    Chris Bassitt pitched five scoreless innings against the Rangers to take the win in his first start of the season. He gave up 2 hits.
  10. Baseball's Coming Back

    Bob has been officially hired by Chris Sabo as part of his recruiting staff.
  11. Is pouring in Jan/Feb the cause? I could see the problems, but the interview didn't really address what had been done wrong. So, how much needs to be fixed? I imagine that the problems that can be seen are just the tip of the iceberg.
  12. Outdoor Track and Field

    The West Coast is doing wonders for the Zips track athletes, as Hesham Eldesouky breaks the school record in the triple jump! This has been a nice swing the last week and still wondering if we'll see the Zippers at home for their traditional Campbell/Wright Invitational, somewhere in Northeast Ohio! Maybe a twin outdoor MAC Championship would convince the school to do something with the track, but with the railing falling off Infocision, I don't see that happening.....But way to go Zips Track!

    Holy cow. That was a great, great article. As good or better than just about anything I read in The Athletic. And great photos. Even one with a very visible "Fear the Roo" on the ball. Great kid, great article. Who wouldn't want to coach this guy? From what I know of Coach Gasser, they are a fine match. Indeed, "Boogie Knights are always the best in town!" Too bad for all the Millennials who don't get the 70's allusion. That is a first rate name!
  14. 2019 Preseason

    2019 College Football Rankings: No. 127 Akron counts on new coach to jump-start Zips "Akron has finished dead-last in the league in rushing offense the past two seasons, with the Zips scoring a nation-worst five rushing touchdowns in 2018"
  15. Columbus Crew SC

    I'm not sure about that. Progressive Field is pretty empty this time of year as well and baseball is much more popular than soccer in these parts. Haslam is suppose to be building a downtown stadium. That should help attendance a great deal.

    What he does bringing the ball up against pressure at the 2:23 mark is impressive! Edit: Yeah, after watching the entire video, he's good. I want him.

    I want the entire team!

    This video is pretty good also. It shows more of Jonathon Dos Anjos game. He is wearing #23 Blue/White. There looks to be a bunch of talent in blue/white, but Dos Anjos is definitely a warrior with a high motor. Me likey.

    I was confused because he is listed as a POWER forward. It's been a while since Tree left.

    I checked out a few short clips I could find of him. He seems to be able to move the court well and has good athleticism. Not sure if he can shoot or not as all the clips I came a crossed were short clips of him dunking. Here is a video of him taking off from the free throw line and dunking.

    Riak as well. It would be a nice little pipeline to build.

    I would be happy to have any D1 player

    Wow! Did someone not get enough sleep last night? 71, you starting to appear very cranky. Have a Snickers! You are not yourself.
  25. 2019 Offers

    If we land him it'd make for a really nice freshman class w/ Ali & Dawson already signed. Hopefully LCJ can sway him to wear the blue & gold.
  26. 2019 Offers

    We could really use another Big Dog or Zeke.
  27. 2019 Offers

    Since you're apparently deciding to be serious, 2. Sayles & X are both listed at 6'9".
  28. 2019 Offers

    Oh great one, please enlighten us. How many 6'8" FORWARDS do we have on the current roster?
