  1. ??? https://www.uakron.edu/ogc/legal-policies-and-procedures/records/frequently-asked-questions-regarding-public-records.dot Who can make a request for public records? Any person can request public records by simply asking for them. Usually, the request can be made in any manner the requester chooses: by phone, in person, or in an e-mail or letter. The requester cannot be required to identify him- or herself, or to explain why the records are being requested, unless a specific law requires it. Often, however, a voluntary discussion about the requester’s purposes or interest in seeking certain information can aid the public office in locating and producing the desired records. What is a "public record"? A public record means any records kept by any public office, except those records that are otherwise identified as exempt under the Ohio Public Records Act or the release of which is prohibited by state or federal law. Ohio Revised Code § 149.011(G): As used in this chapter, "records" include [1] any document, device, or item, regardless of physical form or characteristic; [2] created or received by or coming under the jurisdiction of any public office of the state or its political subdivisions; [3] which serves to document the organization, functions, policies, decisions, procedures, operations, or other activities of the office. Are there fees for retrieving and copying records? The law allows us to require prepayment of costs associated with producing copies, including copying and mailing expenses. Generally, the University may charge only its actual cost of producing copies of the records.
  2. This one will be interesting with former Zips Men's Soccer assistant coach TJ Kolba now an assistant with MSU. MSU brings a 2-6-3 record into their match with the Zips. Last match was a draw with Maryland in East Lansing. The other 2 ties were 0-0 v SIUE and 1-1 v Florida Gulf Coast, both also in East Lansing. Wins include 3-0 at Rutgers and a 2-1 OT win at Wisconsin. Losses include v Washington (0-1), v Cornell (1-2 OT), at Dartmouth (1-2), v Western Michigan (0-1), v Notre Dame (0-1), v Penn St (0-3)
  3. Steve Zakuani indirectly helping USMNT ... (I bet Steve is a great high school soccer coach.)
  4. Daniel Strachan has done well wherever he has been asked to play this season. That Captain's armband is a great fit.
  5. Yes! What he said!!! MASSIVE understatement.
  6. @DannyHoke you make some good points. However, I find interesting your choice of coach's salary increase for which you chose to voice your disdain. What about the colossal waste of funds in buying out the last year of Terry Bowden's contract and buying Tom Arth out of his contract to bring him to UA. UA doesn't have those kind of funds. Some will argue that Football got such and such a payout from their Big games. Yes, that is true, but those funds should not have been wasted on buyouts. Let Bowden coach his last year, and then go after your new coach. To this day, I do not understand the fascination with Tom Arth, but it seems to be in line with the continued lack of skill in hiring a football coach. Don't bother to interview candidates and really screen them. Businesses have figured out how to interview and interact with potential job candidates to really get a feel for how they might perform. That doesn't seem to be the case for UA Athletics. How do you get Rob Ianello...Oh, he's from here or there; he knows Barry Alvarez,How do you get Tom Arth..Oh he has connections to D3 college football in Ohio. ... Who cares? What does that have to do with recruiting and motivating players and knowing what to do on game day. This is Arth's first year; maybe there is an upside, but I don't see it. Watching his press conference following yesterday's Wagon Wheel debacle was almost as painful as watching those of Rob Ianello. I had to stop just a few minutes in.
  7. I believe you are incorrect on 2 counts. As a State institution, it is not the school's prerogative as to whether or not the report is made available to the general public. If you mean, it is their prerogative as to whether they post it on a web page or not, that may be true. However, they do have to make it available. Also, I do not believe they can charge the public for said report. Under the State's open records law, I believe they must provide it upon request. As it is likely in electronic format, providing it should be zero or minimal cost to the institution. Very tired of paying taxes to institutions and individuals who don't feel they need to be transparent and account for their actions.
  8. I will also single out Pol Hernandez who has had a big upswing in the past few games. Starting the season on the bench, Pol has really come on strong. Keep that going Pol. Love what I'm seeing. Having Skye Harter back has been huge. Hopefully, Skye is getting healthier. As I said above the whole team looks more confident; the belief is building. Keep it going guys. I know you can beat any team out there when you're all working together. I've attended every game and know of what you all are capable. GO ZIPS!!!
  9. I'm super happy for Will Jackson and Diogo Pacheco. Great to see Will get his first collegiate goal for the Zips, the one I believe he said he's been dreaming of since 3rd grade. Hopefully, the first of many to come. Confidence and composure Will. You've got the skills; let the belief set in. Great to see Pacheco healthy enough to get significant minutes and his first goal of the 2019. Well-deserved result of his hard work. Also, hopefully the first of many to come. Also, really happy for Chris Lue Young, who seems to be settling in very well at right back. His last few games have been excellent. Keep up that effort Chris!
  10. I agree. Once our Zips got going, they looked confident and were distributing the ball well with good movement. Our GKs need to get past holding the ball too long or having to double touch when under pressure. Better to quickly get rid of the ball down the field, even if it goes out of bounds, than to risk a turnover like that last night in our penalty area. (Of course it happens to pros, too...2015 MLS Cup Final when Steve Clark allowed an easy goal by Diego Valeri / Portland Timbers.) Fortunately, last night team prevailed, and that ended up not being a costly error. I have confidence in Joe ... he will learn from that and move on.
  11. Well done and much appreciation to @ZipsVoice His in-stadium announcing of tonight's Zips Men's Soccer game was his 3rd event of the day...Swimming & Diving, Football, Zips Men's Soccer. Homecoming hero!!!
  12. https://ncaaorg.s3.amazonaws.com/championships/sports/soccer/d1/men/2019-20D1MSO_PreChampsManual.pdf Page 14 starts the Conference Autobid info. Page 15 has the following: AT-LARGE SELECTION Twenty-four teams will be selected at-large. To be considered for the at-large selection process, a team must have an overall DI won-lost-tied record of .500 or better. I do not see the .500 or better criterion for the conference tourney winners.
