  1. Welcome Tom Arth!

    Let the Arth era of Akron football begin! Let's see what he can do! Any word on if he'll be bringing his JC staff with him? I believe he was putting them in place at UTC, so I would assume they'd follow him to Akron, correct?
  2. Jimond Ivey

    He still struggles with ball handling, but he has adapted to that weakness, putting himself in positions when he does drive or back his defender down, to minimize that weakness. Ivey frustrates the hell out of me sometimes, but his growth has been fantastic. I'm most impressed by his demeanor. He had a hot head last year, and is able to control his emotions much, much better this year. Kudos to him and the coaching staff on working with him.
  3. Game 23- PCCC Golden Flushes

    5 games early and Can't State still sucks. Didn't think this game would get picked up.
  4. Game 18 - MIAMI (OH) REDHAWKS

    Must win.
  5. Kostelac Possibly Transferring

    Not to mention the ever-quickly-covered-up accusation of academic fraud. Thank you for the Andy Griffith Show reference!
  6. Kostelac Possibly Transferring

    Hence the "not trying to justify Gueye's actions" statement I used in my comment. I'm not making excuses for Gueye's actions. My point was more an example to show there may be more to this story than we know. I don't know Mark off the court, but on the court, I've seen him get under plenty of opposing players' skin. Again, zero justification for Gueye's actions, but the tone being implied in some posts is this came out of nowhere which is really, really odd.
  7. Kostelac Possibly Transferring

    There are some massive assumptions being made, and those assumptions are turning into unproven judgement and accusations. For all we know, Mark could have made a comment to Gueye that either isn't being reported or nobody heard, that led to an altercation (not trying to justify Gueye's actions). There are some extremely odd and troubling questions to come from this, but until the facts are out and we have absolute proof of fault, assumptions shouldn't be made. Has Gueye been officially dismissed from the team (I apologize if I've missed this in an earlier post)? I think it's odd there doesn't seem to be any defense of Kostelac from the team or coach. You would think if a guy were 100% innocent in a situation, there would be more of a public attempt to defend and apologize to the guy.
  8. Game 17- Eastern Michigan

    You beat them at their own game, you overcame a lot of adversity, and you beat a team that Can't lost to by 30+ a few days ago. Good. Win.
  9. Kostelac Possibly Transferring

    @Akronfan111 Unless we find out Groce errored in the handling of this, this is no way shape or form a black eye for Groce. Purely based on talent, Mark was a fringe DI athlete to begin with and clearly couldn't quite get up to the speed of the MAC, despite showing flashes.
  10. Game 17- Eastern Michigan

    @akronzips71 In the Portal of Transfer.
  11. Kostelac Possibly Transferring

    That opens a scholarship. Very unfortunate circumstances though.
  12. Game 17- Eastern Michigan

    This board needed that laugh. Thank you.
  13. Game 16- Northern Illinois Huskies

    Either the basketball IQ on this team is low, or these guys just don't have the heart to compete at a high level. Boxing out is ignored, offensive players think they're on the playground with the ability to body defenders and muscle their way to the basket, fouling people on 3 point attempts, LCJ doesn't know he's 5'8" sometimes and throws up crap that's easily blocked. You can see what Groce is trying to do. The intensity on defense and overall hustle is there at times, the ball movement is spotty yet flashes of greatness are seen. However, I don't think the players are fully bought in, or if they have bought in, I don't think they have the mental game (at least not yet) to carry out the game plan. There are a lot of holes and mental lapses. This program was left a heaping pile of crap on top of a strong foundation. That foundation is currently corroding with the crap that still sits on it. I have the utmost faith in Groce - that has not wavered. Right the ship and be ready for March.
  14. A few of these need re-ranked. Game Atmosphere (starting with #1): OU, Can't, Akron, Buffalo, Toledo Budget: #12 should be Akron - you can't be $XXXXXXXXXXXXX in debt, and have the #2 ranked budget/resources Facilities: How is Akron #4 in Game Atmosphere, and third to last in facilities? Is it the prettiest, newest arena? No. Is it traditional college basketball with nice locker rooms? Yes. The JAR has good bones. What a weird list.
  15. Columbus Crew SC

    Possibly the most badass rivalry name.
  16. Game 16- Northern Illinois Huskies

    Bus 'em. It builds character.
  17. Game 15. Central Michigan

    Do you mean how to close out on a shooter as to not foul them on a 3 point attempt, especially with 5 seconds to go? By the way, my sarcasm wasn't directed at you, but at the stat, especially when you have games like this where you shoot yourself in the foot with a dumb foul on a 3 point attempt with 5 seconds left. ______________________________________________________________ This was the first game, in my opinion, that we deserved to lose. While the effort was there, the mental game wasn't. Other losses can be chocked up to off shooting nights, depth issues, or just plain old being beat in a good game; this one we lost based on not being prepared mentally to handle the 2nd half.
  18. Game 15. Central Michigan

    Oh goodie. Are we playing horseshoes or hand grenades?
  19. Game 15. Central Michigan

    Heck of a take by Jackson to end the half.
  20. Game 15. Central Michigan

    Which ZN.o member is Groce? Clearly he views this board, because we've been going inside to Sayles and driving with our guards.
  21. 2019 Recruiting

    I have a bowl of potatoes as a reason why he should have committed to Akron.
  22. Game 15. Central Michigan

    That's, uhhhh, hmmm... heck of a path to get to CMU. Really good first road test.
  23. Steve Zakuani

    Still one of the most tragic injury stories. Looking forward to the movie. Will it be on Netflix then?
