  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Great! I just hope it becomes standard for the games to be viewable throughout the season
  6. I am hoping that a significant number of there games will be available to watch if not able to attend in person
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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!
  10. The Zips did not play well. They got outrebounded astronomically. Most of the team seemed to be off offensively. The Zips lost by 3 points, only three points. I think that shows how good this team can be. I honestly don't think they have played as well the last two weeks as they were playing when the MAC schedule started but are still in the game till the end even when not playing well. At Ohio it always seemed that Groce's teams were just OK in the regular season but hit their stride in March. I hope that happens here.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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?
