  1. You just confused me, there are a couple weekends of official visits. They could be committed for a year but they come for an official visit. Your other game day or practice visits are not official. Your official visit has all the commits in during the couple weekends they have set up where parents come as well. All the commits get to meet each other, parents & complete staff. It’s standard. I hope that made sense They can have uncommitted players as well. Your only allowed 1 official visit where they can pay the expenses of travel and hotel for a weekend so it’s nice to have commitments before official visit but if they aren’t committed it’s obviously late in game & if you have them here you have offered and really want and think you have a chance as we don’t have the endless budget P5’s do.

  2. Just read that 1st Team All-Ohio RB and Zips commit Charles Kellom was named the Cincinnati Enquirer's D-1 Offensive POY.

  3. I feel it came down a lot to effort. Given the size Akron has there is no way they should have been dominated on the glass like they were. Kent seemed to just want the game a lot more than us by fighting (and winning) to get every 50/50 ball. While I do think this Akron roster is better than Kent, I don't think it's significantly better. This Akron team still has a ton to improve. As bad as it is to lose a rivalry game hopefully it serves as a wake up call.

  4. I had speculated earlier in one of the threads about Mr. Lewis that there might be a connection with Reno Ferri from his time at 'Cuse. Regardless, I don't think JoeMo is unknown to these players. This is the guy that produced one of the top offenses in college football in back to back years with Saquon Barkley and Trace McSorley, ultimately sending Barkley to the NFL as a top 5 draft pick. He is as good of an offensive mind as any of the schools on that list have on their respective staffs, if not better. Not to mention his reason for coming to Akron is incredibly down-to-earth (family), and he seems very genuine. It's not hard to sell himself to recruits, and there are worse places than Akron in the world.

  6. I guess this is a bit cynical but I wonder how commitable those offers are. In any case, just to be on the radar at those places is pretty impressive. Glad to see some positive momentum

  7. I suspect they are doing more of that to get teams back on the road and out of town early to avoid having to spend the night during Covid.

  8. @94zipgrad & @adzip thank you both for the explanation/clarification. I'm caught up and it all makes more sense now.

  9. 94zipgrad is on the right path- some of our announced commits are already enrolled- they may participate in this weekend’s doings but they are committed in the sense they have already enrolled; other announced commits are here with family to cement their decision and meet people, see facilities, etc. There is a third group that are not committed and, hopefully, some/many will commit tomorrow. To have no new info tonight is not a problem- they are busy. To have no new commitments by this time tomorrow will be more of an issue. Hopefully we will have some positive developments in the next 24 hours. Go Zips!

  10. We need positive news here to take some of the sting out of losing to KSUcks in basketball. Any updates?

  11. Things I would like to see going forward: 1. Consistency in individual performances. So far the only consistent player has been Freeman. 2. More aggressive offensive play from Castaneda. 3. Somebody to step up as a team leader. 4. More under control play by Ali. He's really grown as a player but he just occasionally appears to want to put everything on his shoulders and gets out of control. 5. Tribble to use his athleticism to become a lock down defender. 6. Continued growth from Aziz. 7. Trimble to look to score from mid-range and drive when pressed off of the 3 point line. 8. Clarke to stop going backwards and build on last year. 9. More mixing up of defenses 10. More movement on offense and use of the big man in the pick and roll. The big man NEVER gets the ball in the pick and roll. 11. Michael Wynn to show us something...Just something.
