  1. Possible Candidates

    A little worried about his poor 9-13 record at an FCS team, so I took a deeper look. Last year they finished 3-8, while winning 2 of the last 3 (their lone loss was by 3 pts in double OT). This year Chattanooga ended the year playing South Carolina, 49-9 (Zips only managed 3). They started the year off 4-0, but only ended the year 6-5. They lost to the top 4 teams in the league to finish 5th. I wouldn't hold losses to LSU or USC against him. What does worry me, is that in the 3 years leading up to his arrival Chattanooga posted records of 10-4, 9-4, and 9-4. Did they have a mass exodus of players? Why did they drop down to 3-8? Maybe someone that follows FCS can shed some light.
  2. I believe that we pay around $20-25k for the Coppin States of the world to come to the JAR.
  3. I don't think Akron is in a position to be "above the CIT or CBI", considering we haven't even been able to win those tournaments when we've gone, let a lone a NCAAT game. If those are our best options, take them and get our guys some post season experience. In 2009-2010 VCU won the CBI. The following year they went from a play in game to the Final 4. Post season experience is important regardless where we get it.

  5. 2018 Zips Representing the USA

    I went to the game tonight and loved seeing 3 Zips start and get lots of playing time. Last time I was in this stadium Darlington had an Akron jersey on. At the end of the first half Bobby Wood shot a PK and I had flashbacks of horror from the last time I was here, but luckily this PK went in
  6. Game 7—App State Mountaineers

    When was the last time we had a guard with a double-double and one of the stats was assists? Feel like it’s been a few years.

    Game time changed to 7pm due to winter storm.
  8. 2017-2018

    I think the last time we played in Dayton, Dayton had just gotten a top 25 ranking that week and the game went into like 4 OT's. Ended with Nick Dials trying to launch a half court 3 for the tie and the ref only gave him 2 shots because they said it was a non-shooting foul.
  9. Possible Late Additions

    Duviver would be great for the last scholarship. It will be tough to beat out Georgetown for him though.
  10. SG Malcolm Duvivier - Oregon St Transfer

    "Akron, Rice, Niagara and most recently Georgetown are coming at Duvivier the hardest." Really good write up on his recruitment. http://northpolehoops.com/2017/04/11/georgetown-latest-malcolm-duvivier-recruitment-bubble/#QWvQraYKRi1KwXdf.99
  11. He was a Rivals 3 star out of HS. http://www.verbalcommits.com/players/malcolm-duvivier
  12. 2017 G Eric Hester - Florida Transfer

    Looks like another solid PG. ESPN and Scout had him as a 3 star out of HS, while Rivals had him as a 4 star. -6'10 wingspan sounds great. http://www.verbalcommits.com/players/eric-hester http://floridagators.com/roster.aspx?rp_id=9821

    I just added 2 more names in the recruiting section.
  14. Long Beach State transfer Loren Jackson visited Akron yesterday. Rated a 3 star prospect and #9 PG in IL when he came out of HS. http://www.longbeachstate.com/sports/m-baskbl/mtt/loren_jackson_1028260.html
  15. ECU transfer Deng Riak had a visit to Akron yesterday. 4 star ESPN recruit out of HS. http://247sports.com/player/deng-riak-80532 http://insider.espn.com/college-sports/basketball/recruiting/player/evaluation/_/id/202584/deng-riak
