    In hindsight, the decision to cancel the tournament was the right decision and probably saved lives. I am healthy sitting at the computer and thankful for my health and the health of my family. I hope all Zip fans stay healthy to cheer for the Zips next year.

    I know there wasn't a postseason for us this year, but One Shining Moment has been the social media posts from this squad. These guys were truly close. It's a shame they were robbed of showing the nation just how special this group was. I hope we never take the 2019-20 Zips for granted, because they have been one of the best groups ever to represent the University.

    So that's 3 different simulations that all have at least one thing in common; Tosu losing to the first team they play. Love it.

    He kind of looks like Rob Senderoff had a more socially awkward cousin.

    Wow, what an awkward looking photo. Looks like he was being held at gunpoint and told to smile big or they'd shoot him.

    Didn't want to start a new thread, so since he had two highlight dunks in this game, one of which was one of the nastiest poster dunks I've ever seen live...

    Pol Hernandez and Marco Milanese were interviewed on the 6 pm broadcast of News Channel 5 (WEWS) yesterday, talking about their returns to Spain and Italy, respectively, and the uncertainty of any issues they may face coming back into the USA at some point. Afterward, I exchanged messages with Pol through Instagram. He's doing well and taking his classes on line. I told him he was on the news; he was surprised it aired that soon and was happy for me to confirm that he came across well. I miss our team and the Spring matches. We have an exceptional team of very talented players, coaches, and staff. They are all incredible people and great friends. I hope all of them and their families are well and staying healthy and safe. Can't wait to see them again.

    Just read NCAA opening investigations into recruiting at the I 75 schools Toledo and BGSU. Was only a matter of time. BG surprises me.

    Another award for LCJ. Here's the article- https://gozips.com/news/2020/3/25/mens-basketball-jackson-named-to-lou-henson-all-america-team.aspx?camefrom=EMCL_3266058_156442140

    There's trembling trouble with Tribble and Trimble.

    Very negative? Did you read the first 9 words and last sentence of my post? The rest is just (unpleasant) facts.

    Tough to tell until both sides of the transfer portal, transferrors and transferrees, flush out. Also, some high school seniors may not qualify. Just so much time before the season is here from thing to go to heck (think Eric Hester). At this point, I don't see PCCC making much of a run as they lose quite a lot with Pippen as the only returning starter. I like OU as Preston and Vander Plas are solid and Boles will continue to bring in talent and grow the program. BG came apart at the end of the season and lose Turner and Frye. Miami never seems to make much progress despite the fact that all of the kids should now be all Owens recruits. Bufflao is as solid as anyone for now. Just lots and lots of uncertainty. If you put a gun to my head, I'd put Buffalo and Akron at the top. I really like Dailey and Curry and think the Zips will be solid as long as Groce can maintain the "Team-ism."

    One way to cut through time is have a couple players on the bench that have to sit out during a year where we had great chemistry. Guys like Trimble and Dailey should be able to fill the leadership roles with Cheese, Riak, Banks, & X departing. The key is LCJ. Him returning is massive for this program, and we owe it to him to show how thankful we are.

    Since we're stuck at home and watching a lot of stuff streaming; I found this guy on youtube who talks about different unique histories of plane engineering. Its a fun little educational diversion. This episode has a little segment about the USS Akron and the Akron-Class flying aircraft carriers that were made by the US Navy. Fun little Random reference

    Interesting quote from an ESPN article. "I decided to change leadership of our program days before the COVID-19 crisis emerged. A comprehensive national search in this time of anxiety, despite exceedingly strong national interest in the position, just didn't sit well with me," athletic director Kathy Beauregard said in a statement. I don't know if that's a cop out, but if I'm a WMU fan, using the Coronavirus situation as an excuse to not have an extensive HC search wouldn't sit well with me.

    So a few guys who are huge A-10 fans put on a simulation of the A-10 tournament using the NBA 2K20 video game with custom college rosters. They put the event on YouTube and it was such a success they decided to do a full simulation of the NCAA tournament, complete with selection show and everything. They are streaming every game along 4 YouTube channels and the first round was yesterday, complete with a few upsets (including #5 Suckeyes losing to #12 Rhode Island). The Zips are in the tournament as the #13 seed in the East, taking on #4 Louisville in Sacramento. The game is at 1:20PM this afternoon on channel 2. Here is the bracket: And here are the four channels: Channel 1 Channel 2 Channel 3 Channel 4 And there's even a 'red zone channel' switching between the top games at the time since there is multiple games at a time: Buzzer Beater Channel Here is the article from Yahoo that I first heard of this: https://sports.yahoo.com/march-madness-after-all-quarantourney-livestreamed-video-game-ncaa-tournament-is-what-we-needed-233948378.html I watched quite a bit of the action last night and although it's not the same as the real tournament, I actually found myself way more interested in the games than I thought I would(#2 FSU was down by 17 points early in the game before a slow and steady comeback against #15 UALR, which was pretty interesting to watch). Here's hoping the Zips fair better than their +10 point spread.

    Did you notice what happened to Tosu in its 1st game. Apparently I'm not the only one who thinks they were WAY over-rated.

    Love these updates from the players. Genius idea. It really contributes to fan attachment.

    Not sure how accurate this is, but the WMU is saying Flowers is transferring to EMU... https://csnbbs.com/thread-897265.html

    I would advise not watching it. They had Freeman playing and Zips down by 21.
