  1. Its so strange to have the NCAA soccer tournament come out and not have the Zips in it. And the MAC rep in the tournament didn't win a single regular season MAC match. ๐Ÿคฎ
  2. Does anyone else get this message on poll questions "You do not have permission to vote in this poll, or see the poll results."?
  3. I was confused by this too, here's why the Zips are already the champs Tie breaker for MAC soccer teams 1. Between TWO teams: A. Head-to-head competition B. Division Record (10 games)^ (note: irrelevant for men's soccer) C. Winning percentage* vs. ranked conference teams (top to bottom, regardless of division, vs. common opponents regardless of the number of times played) D. Coin flip So the worst the Zips can end is 3-1-1 and the best either WMU or SIU-E can end is also 3-1-1 (but not both because they play each other). If SUI-E ends 3-1-1 the Zips win on head to head. If WMU goes 3-1-1 it drops to the highest team in the standings that you lost to. Since WMU lost to NIU and there is no way NIU can finish lower in the standings than WVU (since the Zips would have to lose to them in this scenario) that is where the Zips eliminate WMU so they are the regular season champs and host no matter what happens tomorrow. In any case glad to see the tournament back where it belongs ๐Ÿ™‚
  4. Not only back again but occupying the #1 slot. Sigh.
  5. "Local" FCS teams (within a 3 hour drive): Youngstown Robert Morris Duquesne Not much to pick from.
  6. Lets hope he multiplies points at an alarming rate ;-)
  7. New coach and losing their top four players? Buffalo returns to MAC level basketball again. League has suddenly become wide open again.
  8. Is anyone not rooting for BGSU tonight? They have never won the tournament and if they do it puts two MAC teams in. Go Falcons
  9. They explain the categories in the article Tradition โ€“ The history of the program Media Exposure โ€“ Games on national television Game Atmosphere โ€“ Includes attendance Budget/Resources โ€“ Includes coachesโ€™ salaries, recruiting budget, travel budget, private planes, cost of attendance, etc. Buy Games โ€“ Programs who are bought the fewest number of times will rank first Geographical Recruiting Base โ€“ Proximity to players Facilities โ€“ Not just the arena, but also practice facilities, weight room, locker rooms, etc. Selling Pros โ€“ Being able to sell not only NBA players, but also those who play overseas Zips have had a lot of National Television (for the MAC) in the last decade or so. Ans for Selling Pros we have had a lot of guys continue their careers overseas after they were done at Akron. Of course on Buy Games couldn't it just be no one wants to pay to play some of these teams? :-)
  10. 15th straight year that the Zips have won at least one tournament game. Pretty impressive streak. In contrast prior to that I think they won one tournament game period since joining the MAC.
  11. I do hope Buffalo loses somewhere before the final so it might as well be to us. Love to see the MAC get two teams in the tournament.
  12. 8 seed vs Miami since NIU beat Ball State. Then Buffalo. Going to be a short tournament run
