  1. I thought the same thing. The first sentence was a great place to start.
  2. Oh, I don't know. I think Buffalo's QB did pretty well last year. PFF listed him as an "hidden offensive gem" coming into this season. https://www.pff.com/news/college-football-who-are-college-footballs-hidden-offensive-gems "Vantrease holds our second-highest passing grade for returning Group of 5 quarterbacks in non-play action, straight dropbacks, at 82.7." Pretty obscure stat, but I like it.
  3. Athlon's college football preview ranks Akron's: QB unit ahead of BGSU, CMU ,NIU, and OU. WR/TE unit ahead of UB and CMU. DL unit ahead of BGSU. DB unit ahead of BGSU and NIU. And predict Akron to win 3 games. That's moving in the right direction.
  4. This is some great Memorial Day optimism! Hope you are right.
  5. Could someone provide some narrative to explain why this is good news (and/or lazy journalism)?
  6. 16% chance of Akron going to a bowl? Best news that has been posted here in a long time. Now, will someone please briefly explain how they got the 16% number?
  7. If there an FBS program that set out to "save money" in their hiring of a coach and proceeded to have success with that coach? None come to my mind.
  8. Whether we like it or not, coaching salaries do reflect market value . . . but in a market that was previously escalating . . . can't wait to see what happens in the next round of negotiations.
  9. Would any of you fine Zips fans be kind enough to help me add an avatar? I'm tired of the plain C. For the record, I want to use a "Fear the Roo" logo because I think it is wonderful. I've clicked around the site and can't see to find out how to do it. Thanks in advance.
  10. Interesting. Make the potential grad transfers pay for setting themselves up? Seriously, I would think that Arth would want guys taking courses in the summer, especially this summer.
  11. The Iowa State game was the last Akron game I attended too! 😉 This was posted in the CycloneFanatic.com discussion about the Akron cuts. All red on the visiting team side and lots of red on the home team side. Yes, we travel well.
  12. This is tough news for an upper-class student to get in mid-May! Proof that scholarships are one-year deals.
  13. Are you saying that he is the minor league baseball Michael Jordan of predictions?
  14. Not surprised that football was staying, but I am surprised that football didn't take some cuts. If spun better, this could have be done in a manner that made it seem like investment and prioritization of football for which public opinion has been faltering.
