  1. UG3 inactive all season thus far apparently? Unfortunate for Bush, but was hoping to see Ulysees get some snaps today. https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/30141455/pittsburgh-steelers-linebacker-devin-bush-leaves-knee-injury
  2. Was really looking forward to seeing him get some reps tonight. My favorite Steeler (obvs). Good dude.
  3. I would LOVE to get toledo in the MAC tournament. They're Dead Meat. They'll never shoot 58% from 3 again. Akron has FAR superior talent. Next time we just won't over pursue on closeouts and/or maybe just switch to a zone. Winning really isn't "rocket" science if we see these dingbats again. Plus, Akron is a far superior university and city in every possible way. Go Zips!
  4. I hope Kent and Sean Lewis get a bowl game. It doesn't take a genius to see that their program has a clear vision and competent leadership. Any marginally competent coach can field a bowl eligible squad in the mac east.
  5. His tweet literally says, "based on what I saw." ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™‚๏ธ Not sure why we're trying to cannibalize other fans and drive people away from supporting Zips football. Touchdown-less Tommy and crew do a good enough job of that on their own. I suppose it's just another symptom of the program being an absolute trainwreck right now.
  6. Z4P's Fearless Forecast: With apologies to Zipmeister and J.D. Brookhart's goatee, Zips by 14. ๐Ÿ˜‚
  7. In 2011, Ianello's Zips lost @ EMU 23-31. Never in my wildest nightmares would I have thought it possible to look back favorably on ANYTHING during Ianello's tenure here. We are now at that point. Arth gotta go. NOW.
  8. You do an excellent job of capturing not only the play on the field, but also the gameday experience as a whole. Thanks Dr Z!
  9. I've been impressed with what Sean Lewis is doing at Kent. They are very much improved. It's not crazy to think they could win the MAC East this season. They are playing good football. Congratulations to them. As for Akron, I've tried to be patient with "Arth Ball" or whatever they want to call it, but a hapless 0-6 start and getting hammered at home against your arch rival on homecoming is my breaking point. Nothing has improved as the season has gone on. Saturdays in autumn are too precious of a commodity to waste on Ianello Ball 2.0. Good luck, but I'm not wasting any more of my time on this event horizon of hopeless pigskin incompetence.
  10. (PFOWYOC) Pillow Fight of the Week of the Year of the Century
  11. Well, we've eclipsed 100 yards rushing as a team... and it only took three games. SMH. At least Frye called a nice game for Central. It's good to see Akron football alumni having success in the coaching ranks at the FBS level.
  12. Akron hires Ohio's former coach and Ohio hires one of Akron's former coaches. The more things change, the more they stay the same.
  13. Family Guy AND Old School references in one thread? Dude, you're on fire.
  14. Well said. I wish Dambrot was still here but he isn't. I will be interested to see what transpires next season. Hopefully they can take a significant step forward.
  15. W @ UIUC L vs. UAB W @ CMU L vs. TU W @ UMASS W vs. KSU W vs. U@B L @ NIU L @ BGSU W vs. EMU L @ MU L vs. OU 6-6 (4-4) Offensive MVP: Jonah Morris Defensive MVP: Shawn Featherstone MAC Champion: OU OH YEAH!
  16. Post of the year. Or the past few, really. I, for one, visit the site to read about Akron sports. Period. I'm not interested in a case study on the Dunning-Kruger effect. If posters are so ductile as to be stupefied with how "welcoming" Liberty is, nothing's keeping you here. Have fun. As some dead guy once said, its better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than open it and remove all doubt. To (Please) get back on topic... If Liberty wants to pony up major bucks for us to show up and house them, cool. Our 2019 schedule is excellent. Roadtrip worthy game in Champaign in August? Beautiful. Out of conference games against Troy and UAB at home are awesome. Homecoming against Kent State? What could possibly be better? And to top it off, Buffalo and OU at home. Hopefully we're good in 2019. If so, it should be a really fun year. YSU @ Akron in 2020? That'll be a blast. Can't wait!
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
