  1. I was in a hurry this morning...still am...but hopefully it reads a little more accurately now.
  2. Can't believe he's 66 years old? When he was at Akron the guy never got his due. He brought in some great players...guys that Brookhart won a championship with...with no Stiles Center, and no Infocison...just a dilapidated Rubber Bowl. It took him 9 years at UA to get the Zips to a "nice" 7-5. His tenure at Ashland was "very good," but not "great." But it does make you wonder what he could have done had he stayed at UA. He was loyal to Ashland for 22 years, so if he continued at Akron there's a chance he could have been that long-tenured, "Solich-like" coach? And with improved resources, 8 or 9 win seasons wouldn't have been crazy talk. We'll never know... Enjoy retirement, or whatever comes your way, Lee.
  3. Only in Akron could you have a 1st and 10 on the opponent's 35 with 3:15 remaining and turn over the ball twice + give up a TD on a 4th and 10. That's a hell of a 3 minutes and 15 seconds.
  4. Hey, I didn't say "Earl Morrall"!
  5. Undercuffler is fine as our "Gary Danielson" or "Don Strock", but I don't see him as our starter. Arm strength and accuracy just aren't there.
  6. Buffalo would be killing us if they had our wide receivers.
  7. Zips 29 Buffalo 28 Zips players and Staff are confident. Buffalo is overconfident. Undercuffler won’t get the breaks he got last week with his under-throws. But hopefully the running game carries us.
  8. If the portal we around 25 years ago, Jason Taylor would have gone to the HOF as a Panther, not a Zip. I love that kids like Jacque-Louis and Whigan get a chance to play as starters before their eligibility expires. But it’s sad to see guys like the St Francis kid bolt the program that gave him a shot when no one else did. I’m sure there are “overlooked “ D3 kids bolting for FCS that offset the FCS kids bolting for G5, but that doesn’t mean I have to like it.
  9. Freeman and X are missing free throws, in addition to wide open looks. Freeman is much easier to double when no one has to respect the perimeter. X needs to snap out of the funk. If he's legitimately good, he should be able to score against the defenses he's faced thus far. He hasn't been smothered.
  10. Benevolent announcers made this drubbing as watchable as was possible.
  11. Now that the NCAA can’t stop players from making money they need something else to wield their authority over. Dirtbag D3 schools wanting to elevate to D1 basketball are the new whipping boys.
  12. BG lost to some school named “Queen” tonight. Does not appear BG will be 2023 MAC champions, my friends. They don’t even seem to be fighting, to the end.
  13. Irons was in an arm sling on the sideline Saturday. There was no chance of playing.
  14. Last one was CMU over 4 years ago.
  15. Must not be anything worthwhile on tv this afternoon if everyone is watching the Zips? 😄
  16. NIU could be our new “Bowling Green”?! Zips dominating every phase of the game…except punt returns.
  17. I agree with you…Bring on Dijon!😄
  18. What’s it say about December 9th and 13th?
  19. Agreed. The last thing the Zips program needs it to toss a bunch of guys who've been riding the pine all season into the final two games and get blown out. There's a reason those guys haven't played, and it's because they aren't yet ready to contribute. If there is one lesson to be learned from this season, it's - The Zips need to learn how to win. A 1-1, or 2-0 finish to the season would be a huge building block for the 2023 Zips.
  20. If there are only about 11 serviceable QB's in the NFL, I can't imagine how bad the XFL QB play will be.
  21. I don't knw that LSU and Mississippi State are "middling"? They are both undefeated. Both smoked a good Akron team. Miss St beat Marquette in Wisconsin. We'll see how LSU fares against KSU tonight. I expect both will be NCAA at-large teams when March rolls around. Beating one or the other in November would only affect our Tourney seed 1 spot, if that. Maybe a #13 instead of a #14. We aren't loaded for bear like we were in the Williams/LCJ/Cheese/Banks season. We're a lot like last season's team. I expect we'll be playing our best basketball in March and we'll see how the chips fall.
  22. If Sammy Hunter starts making the percentage of 3's needed to justify the volume of 3's he takes, we'll kill teams.
  23. Mid-majors that play a P5 tough for a half, then fold down the stretch are a dime a dozen. Let’s go Zips…seize the biggest P5 win in Akron history!
