    He has another son (step) that plays football, but unfortunately has not been able to link up with the football staff @akron. He is currently at New Mexico Military Institute and will start there next season playing safety. He too earned Arizona AIA, Class 5A All-Conference honors as a defensive back during senior season...recorded 33 tackles with three passes defended, one interception for 84 yards and one fumble recovery while helping team to 10-3 and Class 5A semifinal playoffs...also a state track qualifier as a junior in the 4x100 meter relay. After this year he would love the opportunity to play at Akron. http://www.hudl.com/v/2BFhtL

    It's not their fault. I've said for a long time, the farther south I go, the smarter I get.

    I remember that tournament game against OSU where he was getting beat up and eventually got hurt. Still makes me mad.

    According to this we're going to be in the Global Sports Classic. It's a 5 team field, however, only 3 teams have been selected thus far (Akron, Louisville, and NC Central). https://www.bloggingthebracket.com/2018/10/24/18020280/2019-20-college-basketball-early-season-tournaments-events-mte-neutral-site-showcases-thanksgiving

    Almost forgot to give a shout out to Akron alum and supporter Matt Kaulig for his first NASCAR win Friday night in Daytona. Not only did he win, his cars also finished second and third!! https://youtu.be/pGRtDRHabLQ

    It's short notice but MLB.com is allowing free access to any game this weekend, and Chris is scheduled to start for the A's right now. The free weekend also includes On Demand, so you can catch it later.

    When Eric's number was hoisted into the rafters last year he mentioned his son was going to play for the Chippewas. I assumed it was basketball, but he will be a cornerback for the Chip's football team:E.J. McLaughlin • Defensive Back • 6-0 • 185 • East Grand Rapids, Mich. • East Grand Rapids High School At East Grand Rapids: Earned varsity letters in football and basketball ... scored touchdowns four different ways as a senior ... defensively, recorded 51 stops and intercepted two passes from his safety position ... rushed for 313 yards, averaging 6.8 yards per carry, and scored six touchdowns in 2005 ... also caught a touchdown pass, returned a punt 57 yards for a score and ran a kickoff back 90 yards for a touchdown ... helped lead team to a 10-1 record in 2005 ... all-state honorable mention selection ... garnered all-conference accolades ... ranked as the No. 19 prospect in Michigan by the Detroit Free Press ... No. 42 on the Detroit News Blue Chip List. Personal: Selected CMU over Western Michigan and Toledo ... prep coach was Peter Stuursma ... son of Eric McLaughlin ... born 2/20/88.

    If you scroll down, almost to the bottom of the page, you will also see the Battle for the Capital. Featuring Akron, Liberty, Towson and Tulane. Mhmm, could this mean the Zips participate in two tournaments one in November and one in December?

    LOVE the tournaments O-Who and Canada are in. Our field has potential. It will be interesting to see what level the final two teams are, and who they are. It says we have 3 home games, while Louisville has 4 home games and NC Central has 0(?). Is it a round robin type of tournament? I'm assuming Louisville has a 4th home game cause they'd be hosting us, too? We are also in the Battle for the Capital in D.C. - Akron, Liberty, Towson, Tulane.

    Since the pros would include minor leagues I would have to think there will be more once the program gets established again. Making MLB is always a bit of a long shot unless drafted very high. I am keeping an eye on JT Brubaker right now. He is at AAA Indianapolis n the Pirates organization and was last year's minor league pitcher of the year for their organization. If he can get back to full health it may not be long before he is wearing a Pirates uniform. If he makes the majors he will instantly become my favorite player in MLB because not only did he go to my collegiate alma mater but also graduated from the same high school in New Carlisle, Ohio as my dad which is a very unusual combination.

    If the value of a specific school's degree had any role in the mindset of 17 and 18 year old basketball recruits, the Ivy League would leapfrog the ACC, SEC and Big 10.

    Initial thought - I'd be in favor of adding UCONN (and even UMASS) for football only, but they need to bring something to us. Guaranteed scheduling of MAC opponents in OOC basketball (both men's and women's) that includes games at MAC sites. Something like 3/year with match-ups dependent upon conference preseason top 3 picks or something along those lines.

    Forget dropping down; let's increase revenues by joining the Big 12. Akron would be a great travel partner for WVU.

    Sorry, there's too large a gap between a 72 Roo and a 19 Roo.

    Absolutely not. They bring less than zero to the table in football. They would be in the MAC East and every other year we would play them in Storrs and that is a trip that I would never make and a wasted date on the schedule. Bring them in in tandem with UMass and then there is a wasted road trip opportunity every season. You could kiss any regularly scheduled crossover games with Toledo goodbye and probably BG as well because they would probably move them to the West. Potential MAC East Akron Kent Miami Ohio Buffalo UMass UConn Turrible idea.

    Excellent scoop! Eric was definitely one of my favorites from the Huggins era, although I feel much older now thanks to this I kind of lost track, but didn't he get into coaching for a while?
