  1. Alliance of American Football (AAF)

    I remember a few years back one of these secondary pro leagues wanted to put a team in Akron. I wonder if the AAF will ever make it's way to InfoCision? The way the league is structured if a team were placed in Ohio it would pull from OSU, Akron, and Kent alumni. The AAF has said they want to become the official farm system for the NFL. So add a Browns affiliation to the team and you have to think they could get some good crowds, and unfortunately better crowds than the Zips typically get. That is IF the weather is okay. I watched 3 of the games this weekend and they were surprisingly entertaining.
  2. Welcome Tom Arth!

    For me the sound doesn't match up to the video and it's extremely quiet. Why is this so difficult?
  3. Game 2- Youngstown State Penguins

    That game perfectly summed up KD's tenure. A team with "huge" expectations, playing to the level of it's competition and losing a game they should have won easily.
  4. Duquesne coming to Akron

    Playing in front of 50 people. Is that more than they usually get for normal home games?
  5. Game 4—@Iowa State Cyclones

    I think you may have misunderstood me. Matt Campbell coached at Toledo for 5 seasons. I disliked him back then, and I don't like him at Iowa State now.
  6. Game 4—@Iowa State Cyclones

    Blows my mind how many people want Matt Campbell to be the next Browns coach. I'll admit I've always disliked him since his days at Toledo. Not many college coaches are successful in the NFL without any previous NFL experience. Can't imagine if guys like Spurrier and Saban couldn't do it, that a guy who is 15-17 and barely beat Akron this season would succeed in the NFL. But hey, the Browns have always been good at picking coaches.
  7. New Uniforms

    There's a reason they look "high school." It the stock script font they took from the Nike Uniform catalog and just started slapping it on everything. Nike Basketball Uniform Builder Nothing really unique about it and it is hard to read.
  8. Game 4—@Iowa State Cyclones

    Need need need some points Zips!
  9. Game 4—@Iowa State Cyclones

    This is how I feel. How many times have the Zips started 2-0? Never? At least not since I have been a fan. Can't be disappointed in 2-1, but the Zips need to seize this moment. Just once I want to see us make a run like UCF, FAU, NIU, or even Toledo.
  10. Game 3—@Northwestern

    Also, the BigTen Network games usually show up on my Fox Sports Go app on AppleTV and Roku. Probably some sort of partnership there.
  11. Game 2—Morgan State

    Anyone know what happened with the Navy jerseys? It was reported on Twitter that due to "logistics" they we're forced to bring these old jerseys out. Hopefully it wasn't the football teams fault or something money related. That would be embarrassing... Also hope this fixed soon. Nothing better than the classic gold helmet with navy jersey and gold pants. I really don't like the huge focus on blue and white lately with Zips sports.
  12. Around the MAC 2018-2019

    I was thinking the same thing. Usually you can tell the Zips don't belong on the field with some of these bigger schools. Even in the Michigan game a few years back it seemed like we got lucky just to be close. Kent looked like they belonged. They were fast and moving the ball with no problem at times. They were playing to win. Bowden plays it slow and safe.
  13. Around the MAC 2018-2019

    Looks like he could be the best QB in the MAC.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
