  1. I feel like weapons charges happen a lot with athletes and it usually doesn't amount to anything serious legally (Kevin Porter, Gilbert Arenas, etc). The claim is that he was driving a borrowed car from a friend. Definitely seems like there are character issues at play here and will probably lead to a suspension at least.
  2. Taking a page out of the Browns playbook. Just shoot yourselves in the foot as many times as possible.
  3. Don't think we had much of chance, but that fumble was a killer. Would have been nice to at least start the game strong. Instead we'll probably be looking at a 14-0 deficit.
  4. "promising opening-game performance" I wouldn't say that almost getting beat by a mediocre FCS school, while letting them score 23 is promising at all.
  5. It seemed like whenever they showed the SFU coach on TV he was either yelling at the refs or yelling at his team. I'd be doing anything I could to get the hell away from that.
  6. Iowa and VT always seem to struggle against FCS and lower FBS teams. Almost like every year one of them goes down, especially the Hokies. This year they lost to Old Dominion who most predicted to finish dead last in the Sun Belt. A win can be ugly, but as Zips fans we have no room to complain. 1-0.
  7. I'd rather have actual meaningful bowl games instead of what feels like a hundred games like the Roofclaim.com Boca Raton Bowl or TaxAct Camellia Bowl which nobody cares about. Winning a bowl game should mean more than just a random trophy and maybe some shirts. Especially if you're a conference champion with a impressive record. Will a MAC team get an at large consistently? Probably not. But as fans of a MAC team, I see no downside in this unless they decide a MAC team is never allowed to be included regardless of record.
  8. These are basically "preseason" games for college teams. Just like we are for MSU. Only difference is that they count for something. Just want to get out with a win and healthy. With a boat load of stuff to work on. If I were SFU I probably would have just passed every play. Didn't seem like the Zips could defend that at all. Looks like Bryant is playing FIU tough tonight, so at least we didn't have the worst FBS performance.
  9. Wow never thought the defense would make a play to seal the victory. 1-0 is 1-0, on to the next one.
  10. What the heck happened? I saw SF conversion on 4th down and my stream cut out.
  11. The Zips have playmakers on offense and wideouts that can get open. Irons just doesn't seem to be consistent enough and the line has been bad. Now I'm not sure how much faith I have in the defense. They have been in shambles.
  12. Wow that might have been the worst defensive possession I have ever seen.
  13. That's not going to come back to bite us in the butt right? 😂
  14. Losing in a blowout to MSU was expected. Losing to a mediocre FCS team is embarrassing.
  15. $5 bet on SFU to win. I guess if we can't hold onto this substantial lead, I'll get some money.
  16. Positive: A touchdown and XP put us in the lead Negative: Zips offense only knows how to move backwards Also Negative: This is f$&#@#& St. Francis
  17. Might as well take a knee on every down and punt. There's absolutely nothing there in the run game and not enough time to throw. I think a lot of it falls on the QB too.
  18. Welp nevermind. On a positive note it seems that my football watching will be done mostly on Sundays, at least my wife will be happy.
  19. I almost picked the Akron moneyline in a parlay. Even that is sketchy at the moment.
  20. Yikes. This hasn't been very fun.
  21. I'm assuming it's $500 for season tickets? I was looking for club seats later in the season it said they are only $30.
  22. Agreed. It's nice to have a unified, professional look. Would be nice if the shop section had more updated apparel. I've been trying to get my hands on some nice Nike gear with the new logo. Still not really a fan of the "Rubik" font they are using in all of the graphics. Consistency is good but it seems like with such a sharp angled logo, a rounded soft font just feels weird. That's probably just the graphic designer in me being overly picky.
  23. First time I have been legitimately excited for Akron football in a long, long time. Hopefully this is the start of something special.
  24. I agree completely. I've sat in the Club level for the Cavs and Guardians and it felt the exact same way. The food selection wasn't the same, but the atmosphere, seats and everything else just felt top notch.
