  1. Yet another game with no television or streaming? Why am I seeing my Zips less this year than in the last few years? I thought we were starting to get toward the point where seeing them, since I do not live local, was getting easier but it is starting to feel like we have gone back to the time when I first moved away from Akron back in 2001.
  2. I agree, that and guaranteed three game tournaments (and not the kind where winning still doesn’t advance you to the semifinals or finals). If we have to settle for a four team two game event with no marquee names, though, this one looks pretty good. Now if it were only being televised or streamed somewhere that didn’t require an additional paid subscription.
  3. Why does this game scare me? An opponent that already has three road wins, including one against a Big Ten squad, and the Zips coming off a big top 5 test. This feels like a major trap game.
  4. Youngstown State, USC Upstate, NC Central, Louisville, and the Zips have all played each other as part of the Global Sports Shootout. Akron- Louisville is the final game. Each team has played the other four. While this event doesn't use seeding it is easy to see that they expected Akron and Louisville to be the top two teams in the event with Louisville hosting each of their game and the Zips only travelling to play the Cards. Plus, they purposely scheduled the Akron-Louisville game last for the entire event.
  5. So if we compiled a list of players mentioned in this thread as potential future recruits we like what would we have? Would someone close to the program be allowed to share our list with anyone in an official capacity? Just curious. I wonder how many, if any, are on the recruiting staff's radar already?
  6. Was really impressed with WR Nick Kilbride of Perrysburg High School this weekend. He clearly stood out as a very talented receiver with great hands and at 6’3” and 185 pounds he seems to fit the D1 profile for size.. I was told he has MAC schools showing interest. This may very well be a guy that the Zips would benefit from going after if they are not already.
  7. Ha1 I am not a big fan of the script Akron.
  8. I probably shouldn't have said midpoint but rather well into next season. That is when I would hope improvement is evident. I just don't always know how easy it is to read the non-conference part of the schedule and you really don't know much about the new year's teams. Certainly not sure how much knowledge we can gain if the Zips go to Clemson and lose 56-3. its also not all about wins and losses as long as the team seems to be more competitive and improving. My main point, though, was that I don't put a lot of stock in a new coach's first year. there were some who said Bowden would be terrible after his first year at Akron, others said he would be great. I think its safe to say he was neither. I remember how everyone loved Brookhart after leading the Zips to the MAC title in his first year but he was not the springboard everyone envisioned either. Just saying that you can't judge much by a first year. you hope to see a glimpse of the future in year two but can tell a lot more by the time year three comes along.
  9. Last year I was not in the fire Bowden camp but rather in the please replace Milwee camp. That being said I do think it is difficult to just say a new coach is terrible in year one unless it has to do with behavior and discipline. While I certainly cannot say I am a huge fan of the Arth hire so far I do think, as far as my own opinion is concerned, that the jury is still out and probably will be until the midpoint of next season. I will continue to support my Zips as always no matter who the coach.
  10. Streaming? Also how do we watch the game in Morgantown?
  11. I agree with what you are saying but also see the other side of that equation. Since we are not going bowling what better time to see what else we have on the roster in real game action without losing potential years for players? I guess what I am saying is I would want Kato in if available and as long as it is a potentially winnable game. Beyond that I wouldn"t mind seeing what he have in Deshields or any QB that has yet to play. You can only see so much from practice so if there is a chance for game action without hurting their eligibility long term why not go for it?
  12. Who would you all like to see start at QB? Is Kato still suspended? If Kato is able to play I think I would like to see him start. I would not want to burn Gibson's redshirt. I am not sure where he is in game count and there are still three left after this one. Maybe we could see more of what Deshields can do? BG has been very Jekyll and Hyde this year with more poor performances than good. Hopefully this turns out to be a competitive game.
  13. Dalton Hall, OT, 6'5" 270 lbs., Reynoldsburg HS class of 2021.... looks to be excellent in pass protection, very strong, has played against top high school talent in the Ohio Capital Conference
  14. Any word on how to watch the Zips games in DC if you can't attend in person? Those are the type of games I look forward to.
  15. Saw Nate Williams play for Newark Catholic. Not sure if we are looking at him more for offense or defense. He plays two ways at his small high school. That is one big boy and he moves pretty well for that size as well. One concern may be conditioning as he looked like he got winded at various points through the game and seemed to sit out a few series. Seemed like he took more defensive snaps than offensive ones. I will be looking forward to seeing what he can do once in a D1 strength and conditioning program.
