  1. Zips Bball's Future

    Better recruits, luck, coaching, I don't know honestly. But they have all made it further than Akron and even after coaching turnover they consistency win. Maybe after the disaster last season I don't have much optimism for Zips basketball. I just don't feel good about the future.
  2. Zips Bball's Future

    I think the KD era showed us the ceiling for Zips basketball. Just making the tournament is probably the best thing we'll ever see, and I don't think we would have made it any further had he stayed. KD could always make it to the big game, win a few, but that's about it. The Zips never really seemed to live up to the potential we saw in them. Maybe we just overrated them? I don't know. Can't think that a new arena would have made any difference. As much as I would like Akron to become Gonzaga, Butler, VCU or Loyola, I just don't see it ever happening.
  3. The Zips Defensive Coordinator Thread

    Jason Taylor
  4. President Matthew Wilson

    I know he's probably disappointed, but we all have to be relieved. Hopefully he'll stay at UA for a long time.
  5. Game 32—EMU [MAC Tourney Rnd 2]

    Zips can't score anymore. Going to cost them the game...
  6. UA in the news

    Can't blame a guy for wanting to be in Orlando, instead of Akron. Just unfortunate that anytime we get someone good at UA they move on to greener pastures.
  7. New Uniforms Coming

    In 2015 the NCAA put strict guidelines on which types of facemasks are allowed to be worn. A lot of schools pay around with fun designs, but they are only allowed for show.
  8. Bowden Expectations (Through 2021)

    I'm still wishing we'd see Akron knock off a ranked team. being so close with Michigan shows that it's possible. Do that and get us to bowl games consistently. I'm sure we'd all like to see the Zips end up like Toledo, NIU, WMU, etc. But I think we're just too far off for that.
  9. Boca Raton Bowl–Zips @ Owls

    With the way this game is going, wouldn't be surprised if they overturn the call. Imagine challenging a play like that in a blowout.
  10. Boca Raton Bowl–Zips @ Owls

    Think I've counted 2 facemask calls on Kato that have been missed too. One even included the defender shoving his helmet into the ground after the play.
  11. Boca Raton Bowl–Zips @ Owls

    Exactly what I was thinking. Almost like everyone knows FAU is going to win so the Zips don't even deserve to be there. Seems like they even waited to throw the targeting flag.
  12. Don't think anything would make me happier than seeing the MAC send two teams to the tournament, right after KD bailed. Even if neither of those teams were the Zips. Just to stick it to him.
  13. Game 7—App State Mountaineers

    I can't help but realize how different this year has felt. Aside from the Marshall game, the Zips have really been competitive and won the game we are supposed to. Seemed like these past few games are the ones KDs teams found a way to give away.
  14. Game 7—App State Mountaineers

    What a 1-2 punch Utomi and Ivey have become. Really fun to watch.
  15. Game 7—App State Mountaineers

    Horrible all. No way that is a foul.
