  1. Finish The Climb

    Would be great if "special assistant" turned into "offensive coordinator and quarterback coach" so that we had one with a clue.
  2. MAC Bowl Games

    I'm with you guys. The Akron/ISU game holds way more interest for me than the national championship game. I still can't believe the major networks don't get into a bidding war to televise the Zips/Twisty Winders contest, while wasting all kinds of resources on the national title game.
  3. Ranking Football Coaches

    T. B. comes out pretty good in this Sporting News exercise. To focus on MAC coaches, look between #129 and #48. http://www.sportingnews.com/ncaa-football/list/college-football-coach-rankings-2018-nick-saban-dabo-swinney-urban-meyer-kirby-smart-jim-harbaugh/pw0dkzocij0ozd5nodvbnlj8
  4. Zips Offer Austrian OL?

    I hear most NFL teams are organizing affiliates in Austria; Hungary is already full.

  6. Bowl has been sold for huge profit!

    Notice anything unusual about the photo accompanying the story of Billy Gs visit to the Rubber Bowl? https://www.ohio.com/akron/news/local/billy-graham-set-attendance-record-when-he-preached-at-the-rubber-bowl-in-the-1950s
  7. Game 1—@Nebraska Cornhuskers

    A little bit of respect from the Husker media. https://huskercorner.com/2018/06/11/nebraska-football-ranking-husker-opponents-quarterbacks/
  8. Bowl has been sold for huge profit!

    He is walking towards the press box. I'm seated below him and to his right (although it's difficult to pick me out of the crowd).
  9. T.J. Deshields - walk-on QB

    Combining this thread with another, I'll bet $1,000 he would be the best guy on the varsity baseball team.
  10. Friendly Zips Wager

    I'm game. I'll bet 1,000 Yen that Akron scores more points in the first quarter than any other quarter this year. I'll bet 1,000 Sri Lankan rupees that the Zips miss more than one PAT this season.
  11. Bowl has been sold for huge profit!

    Every worker on the site was stealing turf. I knew one of the guys who used it to surround the in-ground trampoline in his back yard. He gave me a nice chunk of it which has been a part of my office decor ever since.
  12. Game 1—@Nebraska Cornhuskers

    $365 for the works, WOW. Odds are you weren't staying at the Cornhusker where a room a will now set you back $500 a night. Regarding the Zips chances in Lincoln..... If Nebraska pulls their starters at the end of the first quarter, I believe Nebraska will not cover the spread. Go Zips.
  13. Nyles Evans drops a bomb

    A wise man once said, "The worst thing about being a DI basketball or football coach is convincing kids who don't belong in college to come to theirs." Oh wait, that was me.
  14. Xeyrius Williams transferring in

    It took him a while to really develop his love for these words. The only thing X developed last season were calluses on his butt from sitting on the bench. And he wasn't the only one. For example, the Flyers had a 7 foot freshman center who played a whole 4 minutes for the entire season. I don't care how bad he may have been if I was the coach I could have found at least a half hour of game time for him over the course of 30+ game season in an attempt to build up his confidence a little bit and gain a reasonable knowledge of how he performs under game conditions. They didn't, he's gone. '

    Sorry, just saw your post. You probably figured out from other threads that I think if he can avoid injury he can be very good for the Zips.
