  1. Is this still happening? I have seen very little about it, even in this forum. Do I need to be tuned to the radio for Akron-MIddle Tennessee?
  2. This team is going to show great improvement over the next couple seasons as long as we let things play out without rocking the boat too much but I am not sure that I am extremely confident about seeing a positive result on the scoreboard this week simply due to the inexperience and youth the Zips have right now and the success the opponent has had last season and this far this one. I know I have had said it before but I really think the Zips miss having the non-conference portion if their original schedule this year more than anyone else in the MAC. I think this team would have matured and gained more confidence against YSU, NMSU, and UMass.
  3. A testament to how low this team actually fell, we have seen them outscored 82-23 In two games and we are saying how much they have improved. I agree, though, on the improvement. The lines are young, Zach is a redshirt freshman and the running game already looks better than it has in 8 or 9 of the last ten seasons. This could be a tough year for sure. I think it really stinks that we missed out on the YSU, NMSU, and UMass games. All three would have been quite winnable. That said, for the first time in a long time last night I was able to think this team could be pretty darn good in future seasons once the guys get more experience, especially if some decent recruiting classes are on the horizon as well. I like Gibson. I think he possesses what it takes for the Zips to win. He does force the issue too much though. Are these freshman/underclass man mistakes that go away with more experience or is this the way he will always be? I know in general players are not losing their year of eligibility this season but with someone like Gibson playing 4 games last year to redshirt and still be a redshirt freshman this year, does the redshirt drop next year or will he have a third freshman year?
  4. With the former Zips’ injuries mounting this year... I believe Justin March is still on the active roster in Dallas. Any other Zips we can look for on the Sunday gridiron currently?
  5. So, do we expect to see any former Zips actually take the field in an NFL stadium this weekend?
  6. I understand social distancing and limiting the volume and location in the stadium of fans but not sure I understand there being no fans admitted at all. Other conferences are limiting their numbers and even Ohio high schools are allowing 15% of stadium capacity. If a Zips game at Infocision reached 15% capacity wouldn’t that be close to the usual in-game game day attendance we are used to anyway? I hope the attendance guidelines are modified a bit although I do agree you don’t want to be rubbing elbows with strangers at any events in 2020.
  7. I see that Kyron Brown is still listed as inactive by the Jets. Is this still the quad injury? It seemed like it was only going to be a few weeks of missed time when it happened last season.
  8. I hope the Eagles are a positive fresh start for him. It seems to be a good fit because Philadelphia was lacking a bit in team speed on defense. Jatavis should prove helpful in that regard plus he may be the most experienced linebacker on their roster.
  9. I agree you need sustained success not only in win-loss record but in national perception. The other thing no one has mentioned is the MAC as a conference. If we could get a couple of years consecutively with more than one team being ranked in the Top 25 I think it would help increase attendance league-wide.
  10. I want the Akron to get the one seed for the auto NIT bid if they don't win all three in Cleveland. The Zips are more than capable of beating any team in the conference but you never know how a team may react when its do or die or when its three games in three days. Secure at least the NIT then worry about Cleveland.
  11. Great! I just hope it becomes standard for the games to be viewable throughout the season
  12. I am hoping that a significant number of there games will be available to watch if not able to attend in person
  13. While I hope it is a totally moot point and the Zips are playing in one of the top two tourneys, I would also hope they continue to play after Cleveland if the only opportunities are below that. I think guys like Ali, Dawson, and Tribble are going to need as much time as they can get.... You are certainly correct in mentioning there are quite a few seniors but these guys haven't been together for four years like traditional senior groups and they should still be getting better. I'd like to see them as long as possible. Also, Akron has never won multiple national postseason games in the same season in the Zips' Division I era. I would like to see this team be the one that does it... hopefully in the NCAA but if not then somewhere.
  14. I think the problem here is that the worst seed to make it to the semifinals could have played in game one of the quarterfinals while the best seed to make it could have been in the late night game. The amount of rest for each team could/would favor the lesser seeded team their semifinal matchup in this case.
  15. That incident at the end of a great moment for the Zips was unfortunate and I believe started due to something totally accidental. That being said we don't have to like our rivals but we don't need to show our dislike for them in an overly disrespectful manner. Its a great rivalry and both sides have taken it too far at times. As an Akron alum, though, I just want to see those supporting my alma mater stay classy even if it is against our most vehement rival. GO ZIPS!
