  1. 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.
  2. Game 4—@Iowa State Cyclones

    Need need need some points Zips!
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Around the MAC 2018-2019

    Looks like he could be the best QB in the MAC.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. The Zips Defensive Coordinator Thread

    Jason Taylor
  11. 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.
  12. Game 32—EMU [MAC Tourney Rnd 2]

    Zips can't score anymore. Going to cost them the game...
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
