  1. 2018- 2019 Season Post-mortem

    I just don't like watching all these other teams playing after Selection Sunday and the Zips sitting at home. I think in most cases teams should play when invited if they can. I realize that the finances can deter a program from participating and that is sad. I don't think this was the case with the Zips though since the women's team did participate in the WBI. It probably had to do more with the lack of depth. Not saying I disagree with the decision. I get it but I am disappointed because the argument a few years ago seemed to be that it was already a veteran team so not that much would be gained by accepting a CBI ot CiT berth. This year we had one senior so I feel the added experience, barring serious injury, could only have been a benefit if there were enough depth.
  2. So who will get PT in Groce's third season that also got PT in his first? Sayles maybe but he hasn't finished a season healthy yet.
  3. 2018- 2019 Season Post-mortem

    With the announcements by the postseason tournaments the Akron season is now officially over. I did not figure we would be playing anywhere. Does anybody know if we declined or just didn't get offered?
  4. MAC Hoops 18-19

    I was really hoping that there would be more than four MAC teams playing in the postseason. Did I miss someone?
  5. MAC Hoops 18-19

    Arizona State -St. Johns winner vs. Buffalo in Tulsa, OK, approx. 4:00pm Friday TNT Toledo at Xavier in the NIT, 7;00pm Wednesday ESPN3 Central Michigan at DePaul in the CBI, 8:00pm Wednesday PCCC at Louisiana-Monroe in the CiT, 8:00pm Thursday
  6. MAC Tournament Game 2: Buffalo

    The NIT will tell you that they like to limit travel and create regional matchups when possible. They never publicly say that the bigger arena or more perceived ticket sales get preference but it is clear that they do. ... as far as the Akron-OSU game a few years ago goes there were nearly as many akron fans there as OSU fans. The NIT missed a chance at a boisterous crowd in Akron and opted for a less than half full arena in Columbus.
  7. MAC Tournament Game 2: Buffalo

    This should come as no surprise. Toledo, despite their record and second place finish in the MAC, is given an NIT berth but will have to go on the road. Does the NIT ever put the MAC in position to play at home in the first round? ... the eyes are always on the NCAA tourney and how the MAC never seems to get two in but if you look at where the NIT seeds MAC teams or omits them I think that committee is probably even worse
  8. MAC Tournament Game 2: Buffalo

    Buffalo could face Hurley’s Sun Devils. That is interesting.
  9. MAC Tournament Game 2: Buffalo

    That's a killer for Duquesne but I'd take a CiT berth for Akron right now. I want this team with only one senior to get as much experience as possible before next season.
  10. MAC Tournament- Game 1- Miami

    I am not saying they should or should not. I was only saying it is possible. I don’t know how the different budgets within the program work nor how the tournaments themselves get their money. I know you pay to host in those tourneys but outside of that I know very little about the finances of them.
  11. MAC Tournament- Game 1- Miami

    Technically the Zips are now guaranteed a non-losing season. If they were to be 17-16 after Thursday it is possible to be invited to a postseason tourney.
  12. MAC Tournament- Game 1- Miami

    I agree with this and would like to add that the MAC overall is a tougher conference this season than last year or probably anytime in the last handful of years so a two game improvement in record between last season and this one may actually mean a little more progress is being made than it normally would. I agree, though, if a jump toward the top of the MAC is going to happen you would think we would see it some next season.
  13. The Arizona Bowl

    I have no problem with this. I just think there need to be more middle of the pack P5 vs. top G5 bowl games and that there shouldn't be more than one or two bowls matching the same two conferences. I'd like a little more diversity and opportunity for MAC-like conferences.
  14. Non-Conference Future Schedules

    I don't mind the two for one scheduling but I do think I would like to see that home game be in the middle of the three more times than not.
  15. Game 30- Bowling Green

    To be fair I remember there being talk about Utomi being a scorer but also a defensive liability. I don't think he is a defensive liability any more. That may take a little away from offensive production. Both Utomi and Ivey are hard workers, stuck around when others bailed, and are key cogs on this years team. Whether they are the best fit for this current system under Groce or not I have nothing but respect for both of them.
