  1. NCAA Tournament

    I’m assuming the penalty was inside the box and from what I understand any penalty in that area warrants a shot from the penalty spot. I’m sure someone can correct me though.
  2. NCAA Tournament

    What a “unsatisfying loss”. You can take it when you get clearly beaten but to lose just because a player lifts his foot too high trying to clear a ball. It’s almost like they should have just flipped a coin and not played the match. Oh well! I did really enjoy watching every second of their run. I have no doubt they will be back next year.
  3. NCAA Tournament

    This was a thing of beauty! It also shows how little I know about soccer....during this whole sequence I’m like “what are they doing”. I think if more people saw this kind of soccer there would be more soccer fans.
  4. NCAA Tournament

    For those that can’t be at Stanford or the JAR and have Direct TV like me...I just saw that FUBO TV carries the PAC 12 Network. FUBO TV has a free 7 day trial. Just sayin’. Go Zips!
  5. NCAA Tournament

    WTF. The NCAA really knows how to increase interest in college soccer!
  6. NCAA Tournament

    Just downloaded the PAC 12 app on IPad. The game is listed. It doesn’t appear to cost anything.
  7. NCAA Tournament

    Getting pumped about the trip down to Wake Forest tomorrow. Supposed to be sunny and mid 50’s. Should be some great soccer. Got my $5 over 55 tix in hand. Go Zips! Hopefully I’m not the only Zip fan there!
  8. There is a Big10 app. Can watch with TV provider log on.
  9. MAC Tourney

    If you have a smart tv, there should be a Watch ESPN app. As long as you have a cable plan that includes ESPN you can use your cable acct info to watch all ESPN 3 games on that app. Or download the app to a tablet, or just search ESPN 3 on the computer and watch there.
  10. 2017-2018

    Can someone help me understand how a D1 athlete with a demanding practice and game schedule is able to get their bachelors in 3 yrs. Especially when the 4 yr grad rate at Akron is 15.6% and the 6 yr grad rate is 46.2%. I'm going to call BS on these degrees unless someone tells me Akron gets not only great athletes but great thinkers also. I'm sure this is not a Akron specific phenomenon.
  11. Miami @ Zips, 2/28/17- Senior Night

    Down by 2...why would you play thru BD? You knew they would foul him!
  12. What do you think about this Buffalo fan?

    Let me reword this.....I will go to many bb games without a band, but I will only go see VCU play 3-8 St Louis because even though it will suck, it will still be entertaining. Ok, done beating a dead horse!
  13. What do you think about this Buffalo fan?

    Maybe your right, nobody wants a good band at a basketball game!
  14. What do you think about this Buffalo fan?

    Actually the orginal post about VCU was in response to what can bring people to the JAR. I think that the band is vital in creating some excitement and creating a cool vibe in the arena. A cool vibe will bring in the students. For example, me and my daughter are going to the VCU/St. Louis game coming up. We care little about the game...we're going to see what antic the band does and be a part of the excitement. That can happen whether you're in the MAC, the A-10, or at the local high school.
  15. What do you think about this Buffalo fan?

    I believe they left the CAA in 2013/14. That conference is by no means better then the MAC. You are right that the run made a huge difference at the school. It is cool now to go to VCU. Prior to that, VCU was identical to where Akron is now. Commuter school, where you went when Tech or UVA didn't take you. Point is...it can happen! I still like watching the Zips play more than VCU though. Hate that havoc style.
