    There ya go, now that's the spirit!
  2. Kostelac Possibly Transferring

    Thank you. I was about to make the exact same comment after reading much of this thread Let cooler heads prevail. Sometimes kids get lost in the heat of the moment. In my experience, no side is completely innocent in this kind of situation. Kids got heated at practice. Life happens. The most important thing is that they have someone there to help them learn from their mistakes. That's how young people grow into adults (ideally, although not always) haha. There's a lot of basketball left to play. Hopefully Jimond's play becomes contagious and they can keep building some momentum into tournament play.
  3. Game 17- Eastern Michigan

    Well, if it weren't for the Marshall loss, we'd actually be undefeated at home. Is there any way we can play the rest of our games within the warm confines of the JAR? Haha. Gutsy win tonight, though. Hopefully they can shake their road woes in Oxford.
  4. Game 16- Northern Illinois Huskies

    Yep. Sure he's terrified. Nope. Already been charged. Groce and the program are more concerned with trying to win basketball games. Thanks! Good riddens.

    Dysfunctional Northwestern collapses in second half of chaotic 39-34 loss to Akron

    How 'bout them Zips! Raise that dadgum Jolly Roger high above Infocision Stadium. Go Zips!
  8. Game 1—@Nebraska Cornhuskers

    I find it difficult to believe that the contracting parties wouldn't have expressly provided for such a contingency.

  10. President Matthew Wilson

    Haha. No worries, you seem like a genuinely good dude. We probably attended UA at roughly the same time. Wilson was the dean of the law school for a period when I was there. He seemed to me, extremely capable of his expanded presidential duties and was genuinely liked. I don't think I'm going too far by saying we were glad he was our law school dean for the period that he was there. I certainly wish him the very best in his westward endeavors. However, I would be remiss by not emphasizing that the board of trustees would be well advised to look in house again in their search for our university's next president, however, that's not to say they shouldn't turn every stone. This university and this community require and deserve a capable person who understands the unique challenges that Akron faces and who values and recognizes the collaborative potential of the city, the university, and the surrounding community above all else. After all, a rising tide lifts all boats. In fact, my future donations demand another community valuing, global reaching, progressive, education first president as opposed to some "Carpetbagging Texan hypocrite hatchet job." Keep Akron Educated (and weird)!

    Not to be a troll, but it's "milquetoast" for future reference. Otherwise, I agree with about 99% of your very logical posts.
  12. NCAA Tourney Thread

    I don't care, I hope Buffalo wins. This is a fun game to watch and the more mid majors to move on the better.

    Wow. Cotton is a baller.
