  3. Non-Conference Future Schedules

    I think that was his point . . . in response to the proposition that no African-Americans would go to Liberty.
  4. MAC Indoor Track and Field Championships

    Wow...some expected performances, some exceptional performances, some surprising performances. The guys are leading Eastern after day 1 by 4 and Kent by 9. Maurice Harris scored in the weight throw, and got things started. Jordan Latimer defended his championship in the Long Jump and Hesham Eldesouky surprised with a 3rd. Unfortunately Terrance McClain came up lame after his first jump. Then came one of the big surprises...Tevin Brown came from like 5th with 600 meters to go, took the lead with 200 to go and kicked home a huge win in the 5,000 meters, breaking the Eastern Michigan Distance Running domination. And then the Distance Medley Relay team grabbed a second, another surprising point-getter. Bigger surprises earlier, as the Zips qualified 3 in the 60 hurdles (Jace Rountree with a top-time of 8.08 seconds, Preston Fillman and Patrick Kimball). Sam Janson qualified with the second best time in the 400 along with Zack Robinson. Amir Willis and Malcolm Briley are in the finals of the 60. And Willis is in the 200 finals. On the Gals (sorry!) side Lucy Bryan was stellar, winning the pole vault with a new meet record 14' 6 1/2" a season best. And Abby Helminiak took 3rd, and Eboni Hall took 5th. Surprise - Sara Foster, a freshman took 4th in the Pentathlon for the Zips. Olivia Snyder grabbed 5th in the weight throw, not unexpectedly. Dara Perry qualified 2nd in the 60 hurdles, and Haley Hess qualified in the 800, both as expected. And the night ended with the biggest surprise for the women, a win in the DMR. So the women are 2nd to Central Michigan (another surprise) after day 1, but not a lot of qualifiers for finals tomorrow. But still some nice performances..... Go Zips!

  7. MAC Basketball Attendance Article

    I used to post rather frequently on this forum. Back to comment on this thread so don’t hate me for bringing the topic back to the top. For years my my wife and I attended nearly every home soccer, football and basketball game. We had multiple season tickets for each program or used the flex packs. Fast forward 3 years and we have a 3 and a 5 year old so season tickets are not in the cards for weeknight basketball or foul weather outdoor games. One of the major reasons we don’t go to games these days is the day of game penalty for buying tickets. Sure I could buy online or drive to Akron and pick up during the extensive ticket office hours during the work week...but not practical. All fans 3 and older need a ticket so $80 is just too much to sit on a hard bench with the kids to watch just so so entertainment. Also the game entertainment/hosting, dance team and general atmosphere have gone way downhill over the past couple of years. We bring food and drinks into the game for the kids but I dislike feeling like a beggar at a game who is too cheap to buy a $4 soda and similarly priced bottle of water. C’mon $4 for a coke? Call me cheap but my love of the zips is falling behind the school’s ability to get me to drive 25 min each way, walk across a sad and noticeably crumbling campus and drop a $100 on a $40 product. Scratch 4-7 people from the attendance figures for every home event. Speaking of the campus. Coming back to campus makes me sad these days. There was so much excitement when I was on campus with the new buildings, growing enrollment and respected academic programs. I am struck by the pace at which a series of bad decisions can tank decades or more of progress. I am not affiliated with university no do I really care about the politics. The school is just a shadow of the former place and it is sad. Broken bricks on the walkways are the most visceral reminder on the walk into the jar.

  14. Non-Conference Future Schedules

    They hired a head coach with a history of recruiting violations - from giving money/cars to players, to hiring female escorts for his players - and somehow there's a focus on race? Well, ok then. I just want to beat Liberty unlike we were able to with FAU and Lane Kiffin. I like playing these obscure schools with coaches I dislike. Gives me a reason to get excited.

    can any of you leftists libsplain why you're so obsessed with skin color?
  19. Non-Conference Future Schedules

    What's your point? Neither of those wins are all that great. UCLA fired their coach in December because of poor performance and are currently rated as the #116 team in the country. They aren't even good enough to make the NIT this year. Congrats, they beat Kent by 12 fewer points than we did and its not like our season is anything to write home about.
