  3. So last night on the CMU broadcast the announcers referred to the Zips as the "Class of the MAC". So I wondered how true that was so I went back and looked up the stats (I am retiring in two more days so I have the time at work 😂). So I did a spreadsheet over the last ten years not counting this year (I didn't want to cherry pick and make sure I included all of Akron's titles since 2009) and these are the results: Team Avg Wins Avg Losses Regular Season Titles Tournament Titles Winning Seasons Buffalo 11.9 5.6 2.33 4 9 Akron 11.5 6.1 4.5 1 (also first seed when the tournament was vacated) 7 Toledo 10.8 6.9 1.5 0 6 Kent 9.9 7.7 0.33 1 (bastards 😂) 7 Ohio 9.3 7.9 0.5 2 (double bastards 😄) 6 BGSU 8.6 9.0 0 0 (since 1968) 5 EMU 7.9 9.3 0 0 3 WMU 7.9 9.5 0.5 1 4 Ball St 7.4 10.1 0 0 4 CMU 6.7 10.7 0.33 0 3 NIU 6.5 10.7 0 0 1 Miami 6.3 11.2 0 0 1 Kind of shocking to me that Miami is worse than everyone in the west. Their sole winning season was last year at 9-8. A lot of the West teams winning season are like 10-8, 11-7 records. And without the NCCA success Ohio is sort of a middling MAC team (but sadly I do expect that is changing under Boals). But from all of this its clear to me that the class of the MAC over the past decade has been Buffalo. Their one losing season was 7-9 a decade ago. With that and their NCAA tournament success I think it's pretty clear they have been the #1 team. If we sneak it back three more years and grab two more of the Zips tournament titles then maybe we have an argument. :-)

  4. Heath better be sending Gary Waters one hell of a Christmas gift every year…that season he rode Waters’ kids to the Elite 8 pretty much bankrolled his college coaching career.

  5. I am in the minority but I really enjoyed the game. First, the refs let them play. Very few whistles and very few foul shots. Both teams missed the front end on a one and one at crucial time. Very physical game. Because the refs did not blow the whistle, a lot of bumping and grinding. Although the Zips were the smaller team in both stature, weight and muscle, they won the battle of the boards. The Zips worked really hard on defense. When an Eastern player was about to get an offensive rebound, Tribble climbed his back and prohibited from scoring. They forced Eastern into a bad shooting night We won another close game. How many Zips team have failed to close a game. We just closed 2 close games in 5 days. Finally, a decent crowd. A first for the Zips season, a line in the men's room to take a leak!!!

  12. Toledo has had 4 stars sign in the past. Nick Rossi was a 4 star LB that we signed because we were going to give him a chance at RB. After he signed the recruiting sites changed his star rating to 2.

  15. Mumpfield was a freshman last year. Maybe this kid makes a similar year #1 impact? The opportunity for playing time will certainly be there. When you bring in one of the best skill position players from one of the best high school teams in the south, you’re allowed to get a little excited. Every great player was a freshman once. 🦘💪🏽

  18. When I looked at the stats from last nights game 2 things stood out. First, all of the starters played 30 minutes or more with Ali playing 38 minutes. Although somebody commented the Zips looked exhausted, I did not see anyone on the court that looked tired and their defense was intense the entire game. These guys are in amazing shape. Second, Trimble went 1 of 9 from 3 points land. If he would have shot his average of 30% this is a different game. Unlike Kent, this team won when Trimble was not hitting his shot. Further, Trimble had 5 rebounds. I do not remember a game where he has rebounded that well. That just shows me he is a very coachable player and listened to Groce about getting on the boards. Finally, Groce on the pregame indicated that Clark has been fighting through an ankle injury. Obviously, he has not contributed this year like we expected but maybe it will get better. I did see he was active on defense last night and had a couple of nice double teams in limited minutes.

  23. Groce just said during the post game that he was a student manager that agreed to suit up to give an extra body during the covid outbreaks. He is going to stay as a walk-on for the rest of the season.

  25. This is the new banner photo on Keylen Davis' twitter profile. From left-to-right are Keylen Davis, Dijon Jennings, JoeMo, ???, and Ka'Marii Landers. Anyone recognize who the 4th from the left is? Could that be our (fingers crossed) mystery 4-star verbal?

  29. During an awful stretch in the game last night, one of the announcers made a comment to the effect that the MAC had so much talent that it was a shame the MAC is a one bid NCAA tourney conference. I actually said out loud "what game are you watching?"

  31. If...IF...IF (I refuse to get my hopes too high) these are the 3 OL we've gotten recent verbals from, here are the schools JoeMo & Co. beat for their services: Tyler Williams, Alpharetta, GA: Arkansas State Alcorn State UMass Miami (FL) Temple Toledo Tulane Alabama A&M Keylen Davis, Indianapolis, IN: Ball State Boston College Cincinnati Indiana Kentucky Miami (OH) Purdue Toledo West Virginia Ka'Marii Landers, Dearborn, MI: Kentucky Michigan State Buffalo Cincinnati Indiana KSUcks Michigan Nebraska Oregon Toledo West Virginia A lot can happen between now & receiving a signed LOI on February 2nd, so, until then it's only speculative. But if these are the three, then wow.

  38. I don’t really disagree with the comment, but in todays transfer happy landscape it probably won’t mean anything in the long run unless Kalle is content being the 3rd big the next couple seasons, and that’s assuming Groce doesn’t bring in anyone to supplant him in the meantime. Honestly I find the fact that the 2 guards aren’t worth burning their redshirt to help our short-handedness to be a bit of a red flag.

  39. If you’re concerned about COVID, you should come to the JAR. My section is at about 8% capacity. Others are even more sparse. You have a better chance contracting COVID in your own attic than you do at the JAR this year.

  40. Overall a good game, but I find it concerning that we allowed 19 offensive boards. Not securing boards played a big part in us losing to Kent they way we did. We were able to mask it against BGSU because of our offensive efficiency, but it's something we definitely need to work on.
