OK...so I realize most of you are probably not thinking about next year's season...BUT....I wanted to let people know that the Puerto Rico tipoff is Nov 15-18. What I wanted to know is if the University is going to put together a travel package and if so does anyone know when they will be releasing the information?
Working on my travel fund now...LOL
Changer, I don't mean to sound snide or sarcastic, but if you had been following Akron hoops as long as many of us in the Nation, you would know better than to expect the U of Akron -- particularly that body that should be expected (i.e., the ALUMNI Association) to step into this breach and provide any assistance to fans of Zips basketball. On the rare occasions when anything WAS put together, the costs ended up being higher than if individual fans had made the arrangements themselves. My advice to you and all others interested in following the team en la isla this coming season is to start shopping around now for flight and hotel accommodations. Actually, I would suggest using Zn.o as a sounding board for this -- as has been done with NCAA basketball and soccer tournament travels in the past. If you find a bargain, let the rest of us know!
