  1. No guarantees, but if I'm out this weekend by the stadium I'll try to swing by, get some pics, and post them here. Again, no guarantee I'll be around, but if I am I'll try to do that!
  2. Ah, which is why the next change is scheduled for 2033. Makes sense now!
  3. Question: Over time, how can Akron, if at all, keep their turf looking sharp? I ask since in the past few years, it's looked ROUGH! However, other schools like Ohio State and Oklahoma have great looking turf every season, it never looks dull. Is that simply a money thing?(which, I understand) Or do they use a different type of field? Just wondering
  4. I assume they will paint those later. I think the graphic is strictly to show a football field, and to likely save a bunch of comments like "What are all those weird looking markings?!" for those who forget that lacrosse exists lol.
  5. Well, maybe he's going to be completely happy at Akron and stay for a long, long time. JoeMo likely learned from his Miss St. days that maybe bigger is not always better. I don't know, just always rubs me the wrong way these people always like to be so doom-and-gloom for fans of smaller schools. Like hey, you have a great coach, but don't get too excited. Blah.
  6. Good question! I drove by the other day to see if any construction has begun. Since it has not, I assume it has to be soon! I can't wait to see what a fresh field looks like. The field has looked ROUGH for a while now.
  7. Thanks for the replies, fellas! That was my thinking. With Irons and then Undercuffler now here, and with Wasser coming in next season (I hope that sticks), I wonder if Jennings will ever have much time as a QB, or will he switch to a new position (WR). Anything could happen, of course. I don't know much about him, but was excited to see him signed. Regardless, the group of QB's we have now, and coming in, have me feeling pretty good. Wasser is a GREAT get.
  8. What is the plan for Dijon Jennings at this point, I wonder.
  9. I'm not counting out us beating Tennessee. If anything, I feel the Zips will hang in there the entire game. Too early of a prediction yes, but Tennessee doesn't "scare" me as much as going into Auburn did last year, I'll say that.
  10. How did he do in his senior season? Anyone know off the top of their head?
  11. How was it? I wasn't able to make it due to other obligations (bummer!)
  12. Agreed! I personally love the white! Not everyone's cup of tea, but I think its snazzy!
  13. Very true. I also read an article that Wasel has formed a great relationship with Moorhead over the past year or two, so hopefully that continues and keeps him wanting to be a Zip. I think he could be a great QB for the Zips and help us as we continue to move forward in what seems like a very promising era.
  14. I like to Google QB commit Steele Wasel here and there just to make sure he is still committed lol. I am afraid of someone luring him away!
  15. Totally agree. If the University wants a logo to catch on and be recognized, they have to stick with something. All too often the logo has changed for the Zips. I'm starting to really like this new logo!
  16. Oh really?! Nice!!! I know some on here have created examples of how the field/court could look different. Thanks for clearing that up for me!!
  17. Very slick looking!! I like it! I agree with the others too who have said it would be nice if they used a different shade, perhaps a slightly darker gold, to show the Z more in the logo. But yeah, the court and field design you put together is real nice
  18. Thanks Clark for breaking the news to us and posting! Not going to lie, I like it a lot more than I thought I was going to. Yes it is an "A", but at least the font is different from the other schools using it. I will say, the university needs to stick with it and stop trying to get different logos going every few years. If you want the brand to be recognized, you have to stick with things for a while for things to catch on and build some type of legacy. Just my opinion. Do I loved it? No. Do I like it though? Yes!
  19. I agree! I do like the Z logo, but I also like the Roo, especially the newer meaner looking one. I want to be happy about this change, but will not be if it's simply an A. I mean, if they know the fans dont like script Akron, not sure why they would pick just an "A", especially if its script. Anyways, anyone know when this will be announced?
  20. However, the mean looking Roo in your profile pic is one I dig!
  21. I'm hopeful. I'm assuming it'll be the Z logo again, but maybe a bit different? I don't think they can mess it up that much. Well, yeah, they could. But...I'm hopeful.
  22. Sadly, yes. This decision is just too much! HA kidding!!!! I'm afraid he's going to leave for another school at some point as he continues to do great for Akron. It would take a lot for me to want Akron to fire that man.
  23. Can't say I disagree with any of you guys. I was so pumped to get in the stadium again and enjoy the weather. But, now, totally deflated. This is a miss by Akron, for sure.
  24. Yeah, I agree with everyone. Good reason sure, but the fact its in the Fieldhouse is unfortunate. With the excitement building around this team and the first look being the Spring Game, it's kind of a damper honestly. Ah well.
