  1. MAC Coaching Changes

    Keep in mind it would have taken I-an-II-o 7 years to win what Jinks won in 2.5 seasons.
  2. Game 6—@Buffalo Bulls

    Saving Gassers leg with the INT. Crafty. no offensive TDS in the last six quarters for the Zips? I don’t think we’ve even been in the red zone?
  3. Game 6—@Buffalo Bulls

    Too many designed QB runs. Kato isn’t that effective.
  4. Game 6—@Buffalo Bulls

    Good things happen when Wolfley is in the game. Give him more snaps!
  5. Game 6—@Buffalo Bulls

    Our offense is soooo bad. So tough to watch. Hopefully the D can score a couple TDS.
  6. Game 6—@Buffalo Bulls

    D is going to start tiring soon. Starting to see flashbacks to the Miami game.
  7. Game 6—@Buffalo Bulls

    Looks like Zaire Jacobs is getting a chance to show what he’s got with Alvin Davis on the sideline.
  8. Game 6—@Buffalo Bulls

    Watching the two scrimmages this summer it was clear why Kato was the QB of choice for the starter spot. In scrimmage #1 Kato was out of control, got briefly demoted, and Ramart came in and stole the show. In in the second scrimmage Kato was in control and his elite athleticism was evident. I thought “If this guy can show up every week, and continue to get better, look out MAC.” Kato still hasn’t proven he can show up every week, and we can’t beat a decent team when he doesn’t. We held on to Tre Chapman at QB too long. He was a great athlete but not a D1 QB. If Kato can’t figure it out this week, we need to move on to plan B. Ramart isn’t the elite athlete that Kato is, but neither was Frye. We need someone with pocket poise, and who can hit open receivers. We beat Northwestern a couple weeks ago, so Buffalo doesn’t scare me. We need to play with poise and purpose and we’re fine. That starts at the QB position.
  9. Three For Thursday [Zips @Bulls]

    He was our leading rusher against the Bulls last year. 7 carries for 70 yards.
  10. Jabari Arthur Interview

    Thanks for the nice comments. It's great that many of you liked it. I got the call that Jabari would be available to interview at 4 pm on Thursday. So I had about an hour after work to brush up on his career and generate some questions before I drove down to Akron. I almost didn't do it. It would have been a huge mistake not to go. I was able to get 6 minutes of his time prior to his radio interview. When he was done with the segment, he spoke to me for another 25 minutes. I offered a couple times for him to go eat his dinner, but he declined. He seemed genuinely excited to tell his story. When we were done we went back to the dinner table near the bar and someone had covered his meal with a plate to try and keep it warm. He's a super person. It was really uplifting to speak to him and I'm glad I could convey his enthusiasm for UA in the story.
  11. Will Bowden get a contract extension?

    Did anyone see Miami's board before last week? Martin was O-U-T. I'm guessing there were similar rumblings in Buffalo after Army outscored them 41-6 after Buffalo's opening TD a couple weeks ago. We'll likely go as Kato goes this year. Is the the next Butchie, or Carlton Jackson?
  12. Jabari Arthur Interview

    I had the opportunity to interview Jabari Arthur last week prior to his UA Hall of Fame induction. Here's how it went: Jabari Arthur Interview Thanks as always to Dr. Z for the layout.
  13. Will Bowden get a contract extension?

    Since when does beating Buffalo qualify as a "miracle?" Especially for a team that beat Northwestern a couple weeks ago.
  14. Game 5—Miami RedHawks

    Our running game would need to improve to become non-existent.
  15. Game 5—Miami RedHawks

    How long do the Zips wait for Kato to become a consistent, effective QB?
