  1. You are a hater. Either a coach defending the 1-17 record or jealous parent who has it out for most of the WRs including Morris and Boogie. Best of luck to the transfers & best of luck to the zips in 2021. Hoping for the best.
  2. He did nothing? He cost Akron the UAB game? Akron was going into the fourth quarter down 31-6.. Boogie didn’t play as much in 2020 because of a conflict with a coach.
  3. Morris (2018), Stewart, Hicks, and Boogie proved they can play over last couple seasons. They are all D1 WRs. Akron will miss these guys and WRs will become weak spot in 2021. Morris had some injuries that set him back. Stewart was a key player but this staff failed to get WR the ball consistently. Maybe because poor qb play to blame. Hicks started at CMU & Akron. Can’t say he is not D1 talent. Not sure why he only had 2 catches this past season. No wonder he is leaving. Boogie could have been an all conference WR in 2019 if coaching staff would have used him properly as a slot wr. They never called plays for him. They never threw him the ball in the short game.. slants, screens, and short routes. He moved to RB this season but Akron could’ve used him at slot in most of the games. During 2019 season it was obvious Coaches would sub boogie out to put their recruit in. Their recruit WR is good player but not better than Boogie. He struggles to stay healthy. Staff forced him into slot role in 2019/2020 instead of letting it naturally play out. Would have been more effective if mixed him in for shot plays.
  4. Agreed these players were not properly utilized. It seems like the staff was forced to use them more their first year but as more of their players came in the less the Bowden players were involved. Good coaches get their playmakers the ball. This staff tries to get their recruits the ball. Boogie, Morris, Stewart, Wolfey, and Hicks will be strong performers for their new teams this spring/ fall. A few will receive post season awards in their respected conferences
  5. Boogie Knight is going to play for Coach Bowden again. I think the Zips are going to miss him the next two seasons.
  6. @72 Roo I usually agree with you. On this topic I do not. I think the players leaving are due to the current state of the program. It seems as is there is a contagious losing mentality between coaches/ players and there has been very little progress over the last two seasons. Can’t blame these kids.. they want to win games and play in competitive games. Over winter break we have lost several key experienced players which include M. Wolfey, J. Hicks, J. Morris, N. Stewart, B. Knight, and J. Riley. Wolfey, Stewart, Knight, and Hicks were all under utilized this past season. Riley struggled this year but is a great athlete and could have helped program if he had more confidence this year. He played great in 2019. There has also been quite a few other players who have entered the portal that did not play much here. Out of the experienced players, that is 5 WR / TE’s. Maybe it is the WR coach or OC to blame
  7. Nice program. West Florida would’ve beat us last year
  8. Agreed. Zips current staff under utilized him. The way he worded his transfer portal announcement on Twitter and no support from Akron Staff on social media makes me think there was a conflict of interest between him and staff. I wonder what happened?
  9. Boogie entered the portal today. Looks like Coach Bowden was the first guy he thanked. Do you think he ends up back on Coach Bowden’s staff? Has Bowden signed any of his other players yet?
  10. I think so too. Very disappointed in the fact that we just lost another experienced player who had two years of eligibility left. Don’t blame him though because he was under utilized this season.
  11. We need to remember that these players are still young and do not deserve to be bashed for their transfer decisions. They have went through a lot over the last couple seasons.Especially when players are graduating from Akron and Grad transferring. We need to respect their decisions and wish them the best in their careers. (I am still blaming the coaching staff for our record over the last two seasons but that’s for another discussion.) Nowadays the NCAA is giving the players more flexibility on transferring because players do get caught up in difficult situations or in coaching rebuilds.
  12. Thanks for sharing your perspective. Agreed. It might be lower than a .00000001% to make it to the NFL with this coaching staff. I hope they change my opinion
  13. Great point. I don’t think the players are selfish for leaving a poor program that is on a decline. Coaches have the right to leave a program for a better job or a more suitable job. Players need the right to transfer or grad transfer for a better opportunity. He is a grad transfer. There needs to be more respect since he is graduating as a Zip and has played two seasons for us
