  1. Game 7—@Kent State Golden Flashes

    We still have 3 games left against current 1-6 teams so there is a strong likelihood we backdoor ourselves into a 6-6 season
  2. If this makes it easier for students to knock out some gen ed credits at a lower cost, I'm all for it.
  3. Game 6—@Buffalo Bulls

    A huge part of coaching in college athletics is recruiting. If you want to blame the lack of talent on the team that's on the coaches for not recruiting better players.
  4. Will Bowden get a contract extension?

    We're 2-2 and 0-1 against the MAC. I think we have different definitions of good. Off to another mediocre season, I would agree.
  5. Will Bowden get a contract extension?

    Sure, I agree this loss appears to have changed some peoples opinions. It feels odd being on the side of popular opinion in regards to this issue.
  6. Will Bowden get a contract extension?

    He inherited a 1-11 team 7 years ago. That's a lifetime ago in sports. He's now the 2nd longest tenured coach in the MAC. That shouldn't be used as an excuse any longer for the cycle of mediocrity we find ourselves in. We should be in a position to compete for MAC Championships by now. No getting smoked by Toledo last year on national TV doesn't in my mind count as competing. I have been critical of Bowden on this forum, but I am very appreciative that he brought us out of that cycle of being bottom feeders. I just have no faith he can lead us to being top contenders in the MAC, which is what I aspire the program to be. This program just reeks of stagnation.
  7. UA in the news

    That piece seemed to be a lot less negative than prior the annual ABJ story. I find it strange that Akron decided to add 2 additional sports while at the same time discussing the potential of dropping down in others.
  8. Scholarship Chart

    It's really challenging to project the number of scholarships available regardless. It's nearly impossible to project whose going to transfer or not at this stage.
  9. Game 1—@Nebraska Cornhuskers

    The highest paid coaches in the NCAA was posted yesterday and a familiar face can be found at #10. Nice to see Nebraska is getting a fine return out of their investment https://www.si.com/college-football/2018/10/03/nick-saban-urban-meyer-jim-harbaugh-jimbo-fisher-highest-paid-football-coaches-2018
  10. Game 1—@Nebraska Cornhuskers

    Nebraska ended up scheduling Bethune-Cookman to replace the Akron game. Probably a wise decision on their part so they can avoid a winless season.

  12. MAC vs. Loser Conferences (2018 Edition)

    It's hard to fathom how Rutgers isn't better given their history to the game and the fact they're the only FBS school in a state that produces a fairly decent amount of talent.
  13. Will Bowden get a contract extension?

    If the Zips go onto win 9-10 games I can see how his résumé could warrant P5 consideration, but at his age it's going to be hard for him to land a job.
  14. Game 3—@Northwestern

    The QB lobbed the ball into the endzone in an area 13 players were standing (8 of them Zips). The ball barely crossed the endzone. If there is another name for such a play it's news to me.
  15. Game 3—@Northwestern

    The thing is a blocked punt is almost a guaranteed lost and you know they'd be sending all 11 guys to do just that. Even if the pass doesn't run all the full 7 seconds they would still need to complete a 30 yard hail mary to the endzone. Personally, I think there was a greater chance of them blocking a punt and returning it for a TD compared to them having to both force a <7 second play & complete a 30 yard heave to the endzone. I suppose you may feel the opposite is true.
