  1. Non-Conference Future Schedules

    The last time we played Liberty was memorable... I recall walking into the Rubber Bowl with about 10 minutes remaining in the first quarter, and we were losing 14-0. I recall Bobby Hendry ran for a bazillion yards that day. I recall Lee Owens executed an onside kick with the Zips winning 41-14, late in the game. I also recall a Liberty coach subsequently screaming profanities out the Rubber Bowl press box...something about Owens being a "Classless Mother #@!*%."
  2. Game 27- Miami Redhawks

    Injury? I don't see it. He's always been incredibly streaky from behind the arc. And he struggles to score in the paint (for a guy that's built like Jeremiah Wood). If I were his shooting coach...and I'm not...for good reason...i would have him totally reconstruct his shot and flatten it out. It is tough to be consistent with such a high-arching, finessed jump shot. I can't think of any other basketball player with a shot trajectory like Daniel's.
  3. 2019 Schedule

    First - You know it's going to be a monsoon for that game...it always is for a big game at InfoCision. Either that, or a few key Zips players will get suspended. If we avoided aforementioned Curse of InfoCision, and Kent brought in a decent team, I think we could approach the 21k butts-in-seats number. Very smart, and blatantly obvious move by Larry Willliams to move that game date up from late November. It will be a fun day on campus.
  4. Game 26- Bowling Green Falcons

    I would not have pressed with 35.8 seconds remaining. Just play D
  5. Game 26- Bowling Green Falcons

    Horrible charge call on Utomi.
  6. Game 26- Bowling Green Falcons

    We played a good first half on the road...what could possibly go wrong?
  7. Game 26- Bowling Green Falcons

    Never good when Utomi misses his first shot.
  8. Game 25- Ball State Cardinals

    We did win the free throw percentage battle.
  9. Game 25- Ball State Cardinals

    When the kid shooting the half court halftime shot ends up with three fewer 3-pointers than your entire team, you’re probably gonna lose.
  10. Game 25- Ball State Cardinals

    I wish we had a scorer...
  11. Game 25- Ball State Cardinals

    Riak getting no favors from the refs at either end.
  12. Game 25- Ball State Cardinals

    I bet we play a good first half.

    Jerry Falwell made a lot of money fleecing the elderly. Gotta spend it somewhere.
  14. 2019 Commit: Ali Ali, 6-7 SF

    It isn't the worst thing to red-shirt next year. Our roster will be loaded with upper-classmen, and Freshman PT would be minimal. That said, I wish we recruited an instant-impact frosh that would push the seniors for PT. We need a kid that can consistently shoot the 3-ball.

    If Arth is serious about centering his recruiting around NE Ohio, the Youngstown area is important. Though not what it was in through the early 90's, it remains a very good football town. If the Zips stomp YSU, it would inform potential recruits who think they're better than FCS-level that there's a viable FBS football alternative 50 minutes up I-76. If we lose...scrap that idea. I think playing YSU is a great. I'm guessing they'll bring a few thousand fans and it will be a fun environment. You can't say InfoCision has been "a fun environment" very often. At least without your nose growing.
