  1. The Zips Defensive Coordinator Thread

    Last year I was a vocal critic of Milwee. I thought then, and I still think now, that with the talent he had he significantly under-performed and deserved to be replaced to focus on being the QB coach alone. I also said TB was very loyal and would not replace him so I prayed Milwee would find a way to improve. So far this year I believe he is doing just that. Of course better talent helps. I have no complaint about his play calling. I thank you for reminding me that I should also give him credit where it is due for a job well done. Coaching makes a difference. I hope he continues and drives the Zips O to the top of the MAC.
  2. Game 3—@Northwestern

    "Also, we definitely had two #9s on the field during the last play. The football Gods were on our side for once. Learning experience. I am sure every officiating eye was looking for pass interference and holding." Just goes to show that our pair of nines beats their ace anyway!
  3. Game 3—@Northwestern

    "First half was rough on offense. Offensive line killed us with penalties and making us always be behind the chains as a result." LZip, I'll offer this thought and I am not trying to be a smart-ass or rain on the parade of this great win. Was our OLine killing us or was it Petersen? He seemed to be overmatched in this game, but I did not see that from the rest of the line. I like this line better than any OLine of the last four years. They can be very good. I don't like to call out individual players, but this poor guy was not cutting it. I know behind him we have R J Kelly who is a true freshman, and one day, maybe soon, will be the anchor of our line, but we may have to turn to him now. Petersen needs to learn from this, improve and show he can play with smarts. What are your or the board's thoughts?
  4. Game 3—@Northwestern

    Thanks my friend. I'm looking forward Bowden coaching our boys up and getting after your 'Clones. It will be a great game.
  5. Game 3—@Northwestern

    The timing was deliberate. I want to win against NW and all future opponents. We won't do that w/o discipline. Coaches should demand it, especially after a huge win that we nearly lost because of lack of discipline.
  6. Game 3—@Northwestern

    I couldn't agree more.Lack of discipline is a trademark of Bowden teams. He does not demand it. He seems to let them play thru it and learn from the experience. The only thing they learn is there is no accountability for stupid, willful mistakes on Bowden coached teams. I think TB is a good coach for Akron and I want him as our coach, but I hate his tolerance for penalties, selfishness and being punks at times. I'd bench 'em all and play the next man up.
  7. Game 2—Morgan State

    Just joining in on the conversation. Kato scares the hell out of me when considering his maturity and disposition. He thinks of himself and his desire to react before he thinks of the team. I see that coming from his Lavar Ball type dad, not a good mentor. I think he can be far better than Woody, but his teammates will pick up the realization that he can't lead under pressure if that is truly there. If that happens bring on Ramart, because Kato is worthless in the long run.
  8. Game 2—Morgan State

    Hated our uni's today. If the blues were truly in Nebraska then I'll temper my dislike. One thing I hate is our white helmets have the Z and the number outlined. The inside of which is not filled in. If both were actually navy blue you could clearly see them from the stands. As they are now you can't make out either number or Z. They just look like marks on the side of the helmut. Would have much rather seen our gold helmets. Call me old fashion, but i wish we have a standard uni that was recognized by all as the Akron look.
  9. Game 1—@Nebraska Cornhuskers

    Does anyone know where we can go to see/hear TB's pre-game speech? I did not catch it and I've heard so many good things about it. I appreciate any help you can offer.
  10. No panic here with this team. Of the 11 starters who played in the national semi-final only two started last night. Cohesion, chemistry, anticipation and comfort were not what they will be by mid-season. Jared has a great team to work with and is building it the right way. The Zips will be where we want them by the end of the season. Remember Butler returned 8 of last season's sweet sixteen starters plus one 2017 starter who was injured at mi-season. We played well against them and at times dominated. Nice job boys. kick NCSU's ass.
  11. Marcel is a great guy who will help when he returns. He has a broken right toe and is slated to return to practice in two weeks. Keep rooting for him.
  12. Game 1—@Nebraska Cornhuskers

    This writer's tongue was firmly planted in his cheek. It was very funny, but also it pissed me off. We will continue to get this arrogance from P5 schools until we beat a few. Then the narrative will change. Until then let's expect it and keep focused on continual improvement. One final thought: I'd love to see the author write this way about Ohio State. Say what you want about the Buckeyes, but you do this kind of crap and Urban will beat you 50-0. Will SB Nebraska be laughing then?
  13. Notes from Scrimmage

    Dr. Z, did you see if Burkhart is in the mix at WR? I thought he was touted as a local talent that was going to find a way to get on the field, but I have heard nothing of him so far.
  14. Walter Brady (Grad Transfer)

    Some good points Here. I see Brady fitting in a rotation. He will make Davis and Reinke up their games, of which they are capable. We will be able to keep our DE's fresh and have their motors running the whole game. I see them bringing big time pressure. Any opponent who thinks this edition of D is like last year's is in for a rude awakening.
  15. Walter Brady (Grad Transfer)

    Wow, if he comes to play he will help us no doubt. I just hope TB has a clear understanding with him and he does not become a cancer in the locker room. We need guys with team first attitudes.
