    A glimmer of hope - the article says we bowed out over COVID concerns, not that we had to bow out because we had one, or more, positive tests.  Idk, I may be splitting hairs.  Stay safe, young guns.

    That's true. Hopefully Zips Basketball isn't suffering any positive cases. But if we do have some, and for the teams with players or coaches that do, hopefully they all have a quick recovery without any complications.

    What we all predicted.  It's wide open.  Who will be healthy and tournament ready? Toledo always chokes.  If they stay hot and can give BG a couple losses all the better.  

    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!

    His tweet literally says, "based on what I saw." 🤦‍♂️ 

    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.

  4. 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.

    When KD was coach I would get upset that we would get to the MAC final and then lay a big egg.

    I also got upset when we played in the NIT tourney and lost to a terrible Ohio State team and would have hosted a major program if we won that game.

    Yesterday, I got upset that we lost to a team by 37 points that we had played close during the season.

    The old saying is that you don't realize what you had until it is gone.  I think any Zip fan would have buyers remorse in that we dominated the MAC while KD was coach and now that is gone.  

    I agree that KD inherited a much better program than Groce.  Remember, he was the asst. coach for Akron before he was head coach.  He did not have players leaving the team and he was familiar with players that were on the team.  It was a seamless transition.

    Groce had none of that.  In hindsight,  Akron made a mistake in not doing the right thing to keep KD at Akron.  Basically, it blew up the program and we are still paying the price.  I think that Groce has done a good job with what we have and we need to be patient to see if he can bring this program back to its former glory and get us that first NCAA victory or at least that first win over a ranked team.


    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.
