  1. Looks just about done. I'm sure we'll get some better shots of the finished field soon.

  5. Yeah forget the Guardians, I want as much money going to the Zips as possible. Kaulig is a smart man, though. If he invested in baseball there is money to be made.

  6. Idea of where we stand right now. Cochran, Singleton, Monoghan, and Corner Jr gone from the roster. No real losses, though Cochran was a starter last year and Singleton showed some potential as a true freshman last year. If everybody that we have as committed shows up and is on scholly, we'd technically be one over. Get a better idea once the roster is updated for the season of course.

  8. I created and updated Rivals prospect profiles with size, offers, and linked hudl video. Once I did that, the national reporters responded fairly quickly and now everyone but Lester Miller has a ranking. Looks like they forgot to give Bowen his 5.2-5.4 rating, but he is listed as a 2 star. I’ll continue to update their profiles as the year goes along, which will probably get a few of them ratings bump if they receive more offers. If anyone notices the players receiving more offers, please let me know. Due to the updates, Akron is listed as having the 67th best class for 2023. https://n.rivals.com/team_rankings/2023/all-teams/football Wasel = 5.6 - 3 star https://n.rivals.com/content/prospects/2023/steele-wasel-261890 Long = 5.3 - 2 star https://n.rivals.com/content/prospects/2023/maurice-long-294374 Mann = 5.4 - 2 star https://n.rivals.com/content/prospects/2023/jonas-mann-285528 Cravaack = 5.4 - 2 star https://n.rivals.com/content/prospects/2023/conner-cravaack-279676 Moore = 5.4 - 2 star https://n.rivals.com/content/prospects/2023/marcus-moore-280680 Bowen = ? - 2 star https://n.rivals.com/content/prospects/2023/joshua-bowen-241562 Louis = 5.3 - 2 star https://n.rivals.com/content/prospects/2023/jean-louis-iii-280349 White = 5.3 - 2 star https://n.rivals.com/content/prospects/2023/catrell-white-276218 Lang-Taylor = 5.4 - 2 star https://n.rivals.com/content/prospects/2023/zayden-laing-taylor-285125 Miller = NR - NR https://n.rivals.com/content/prospects/2023/lester-miller-284649 Norton = 5.4 - 2 star https://n.rivals.com/content/prospects/2023/adrian-norton-276321

  9. The fact that our coach has announced her arrival at a new job before anyone knew she had left her previous one...DOH! 🤦‍♀️ and that we are talking about hiring high school coaches says much about the free fall of the Akron women's soccer program. There is just over a month to go before the players return to prepare for the 2022 season, so it will be near impossible to make a long-term hire, and we may end up with another "interim" label on whoever steps in. No matter what you think about the overall value of UA WSoc vis-a-vis the rest of the MAC, you have to realize this situation is an embarrassment and shows the leadership is asleep at the switch!

  13. I'm actually very relieved they didn't go with navy or gold colored turf. Ever since Boise decided to go blue, dozens of schools have followed in their footsteps just to draw attention. I've seen purple, gray, red, teal, orange etc. It's an eyesore and brutal during games. Props to UA for doing it right and keeping the field traditional.

  14. Too bad about Corner Jr. He wasn't a contributor at this level, but his dad is a Zips great.

  15. Not to dive into this, but the Indians/Guardians are one of the winningest franchises since 2013. I'm hoping Blitzer's group takes controlling interest and takes the franchise to the next level with consistent ALCS/WS appearances, but money doesn't exactly guarantee that in baseball. I'm excited for InfoCision Stadium to be renamed Kaulig Companies Stadium or LeafFilter Stadium.

  16. My only really petty minor complaint would be that I wish one endzone said "ZIPS"

  17. This is very cool. Hopefully eventually Blitzer's group takes over controlling interest in the team and is actually willing to put up enough money to turn the Guardians into consistent winners. Not just a team that falls backwards into a playoff run every 5 years by accident. God only knows how much wasted money Kaulig has been pouring into the Zips football team. He deserves to see one of his team's win.

  21. I like putting AKRON inside the 10 yard lines. I wouldn't change a thing. It shows JoMo's confidence that we will control the red zone. Brilliant idea.

  22. What a home field advantage that would be. WR takes it to the house on us for a 65 yard TD, drops the ball in celebration at the Akron name, and we return it for a fumble TD.

  24. I always knew he was good for something. I never dreamed it was turning lights on. Anyhow, I was skeptical so I obtained a recording of him doing so at the Isadore Newman weight room. Because I can't post the recording, I will transcribe it here. (sound of door opening, sound of someone tripping over a wastebasket and falling in the dark, sound of someone groaning as he fumbles for the light switch), "Yes" (must have found light switch), "Man, you're a good looking light switch." (slight pause) "Did that turn you on? (slight pause) "Darn, I thought sure that would do it. A little help, anyone?"

  25. https://n.rivals.com/content/prospects/2023/lester-miller-284649 I can’t update his ranking or position, but I updated his Rivals profile. There’s also a write-up from a national reporter about playing cornerback at a Rivals Camp.

  28. It will be a much shorter commute from her home near Butler to her new job than it was to Akron. The fact that she never really relocated here after she was hired was baffling. I'm sure Charles will make a hire who is fully committed to raising the level of the program.

  29. The logo is bit skewed because of the camera angle. Aside from the serifs and both letters being A's, there aren't as many similarities as it would seem. Regardless, Anderson High School switched their mascot from Redskins to Raptors in 2020 and along with it came a new logo. I'm assuming they just haven't switched the turf yet or that's an old video. Funny thing is it actually looks like they used old Akron font for the "A" or something very similar.

  42. Your speculation is other people’s educated opinion. Be grateful they share it with you. If you want 100% rock solid info, go down to the Stiles Center and ask the coach. This isn’t Ohio State . He’d be happy to speak with you.
