  1. @bigjim ^^I remember tossing that idea around while updating last year's recruiting class list as well. Without looking, IIRC I did include them. So good call. I'll add your above mentioned players to this year's list of recruits. And thanks for linking the article. According to the article Reese plans on studying nursing. ✊πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ
  2. Thanks, @bigjim! I got the 280 figure from his hudl profile and from his twitter profile. I'm not familiar with "the news?" Could you link it?

  4. 14.6 ppg, 10 rpg. (Shhh, but it may only be 9.5 rpg.) πŸ˜‚
  5. Pretty cool "Akron State." πŸ˜‚
  6. The club is now under different ownership. So it's back to the unwashed masses for me 😭😭
  7. Okay, stupid question. But scholarships don't really cost the U any tangible $$, do they? Just on paper, right?. Sure, you can say the scholarship is worth $xx,xxx.xx, - and it is to the student; the diploma they receive is in fact worth that much $$. But from the U's perspective isn't the scholarship simply letting a student sit at a desk which would otherwise be empty? My dad was friends with someone who owned a country club. He let my family use the facilities free of charge. It was a great deal for us - and worth about $8,000/year from our perspective. But it didn't actually cost him anything because we wouldn't be going to the CC otherwise. Edit: @kreed5120 hit on this while I was typing.
  8. @Illini Zip, where did you find his stats?
  9. Yahoo dot com Sports: When Sports Return After Coronavirus Pandemic, Fans Will Have Changed, If They Even Come Back At All We were just ahead of the curve. πŸ˜‚
  10. Kent is the most superfluous school in NEO. Why does it exist? We only need Akron, YSU & CSU. Kent sucks resources out of Ohio's struggling central cities. Shutter it. And while we're at it, shutter BGSU, which does the same to Toledo. Do whatever is in our power to make Ohio's cities thrive.
  11. I believe Greg Tribble gave his commitment a year ago today. He was our final recruit last season. COVID-19 has thrown everything off, but if we're going to be signing anyone else for next season it should (?) be soon.
  12. ^^This is why I'm happy they got YSU back on the schedule. We need as many rivalry games as we can get. No rival will be as fierce as Kent. But we've also got pretty good rivalries going with OU & UB. We need to intentionally stoke those rivalries and let students & the community know, yes, these are rivals. Add YSU & UT to the mix & we've got an exciting, yearly football schedule full of meaningful games. Kent Ohio Buffalo Toledo YSU Get the mayor of Akron in on bets with the mayors of Toledo, Buffalo & Youngstown. Get the respective cities various social media accounts involved. Bring back the Steel Tire Trophy. Maybe develop trophies for the Toledo, Buffalo & Ohio games. Idk. It just seems like every year comes and goes and all we do is simply hope that people show up.
  13. I can’t give you any. For years I’ve been hoping we’d intentionally develop the seemingly natural rivalry with UT.
  14. To be fair to Terry, he actually compared us to Alabama. πŸ˜‚
  15. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ (Out of Likes)
  16. Bring on Purdue & Kentucky. Clemson, on the other hand...
  17. The @LZIp posted wasn't working for me. If anyone else was having the same problem, click this link.
