    Very odd looking shot. It goes in, but it isn't pretty form.
  2. Kostelac Possibly Transferring

    I don't see him being much of a presence at Malone.
  3. Kostelac Possibly Transferring

    If Kostelac was a D1 talent another D1 school would have snatched him up. He was destined to a career on the bench at any reasonable D1 school. Walsh is a good fit.

    Good for Mark. That's a well-coached (by Akron Ellet's own Jeff Young) and a level of play where he can excel.

    Sorry, that should have been "done thunk."

    Roscoe did not end up being the contributor I thought he would be when I saw him early in the season. That being said, it was his first year of D! basketball. He has enough offensive skills to be a contributor off of the bench. I thunk with more experience things slow down for him, he plays more under control and becomes a spark off of the bench.
  7. Zips—2019 NFL Draft

    Yet another reason for me to shake my head, ponder the mediocrity and utter to myself "what the hell?"

    We could really use another Big Dog or Zeke.
  9. To enable us to have a discussion about what we expect for next season separate from the conversation dissecting the season that just ended, I have opened this thread. I don't see a lot of changes in the starting lineup next season. I think Utomi slides over for Ivey at the three and Williams comes in at power forward, leaving the Zips with LCJ, Cheese, Utomi, Williams and Riak in the starting 5. I wish we had another PG we could start and use LCJ in a change of pace role as I think he could really excel there, but I don't see another solid PG on next year's roster. Of the incoming kids, I see Reece having the biggest impact. Cheese should develop into a top 10 or 15 MAC player. Hopefully Banks re-discovers his shot. Sayles being healthy would be a big help in the post. Roscoe should develop into a nice piece off of the bench. E-man looks to slide even farther down in the rotation with a healthy Sayles and Williams coming in. If E-man is the 10th man, that's not too bad. Toles remains a mystery. Hopefully the depth helps them finish games with more energy.
  10. 2019-2020 Akron Zips Basketball- Looking Forward

    No question. I trust it's what he would like to run in a perfect world. Right now he's resigned to emphasizing defense and slowing things down.

    Interesting stuff. I have to say though that I haven't seen much of anything resembling a D'Antoni offense under Groce at Akron. 69 ppg is not a D'Antoni offense.
  12. MAC Hoops 18-19

    Looks like Mike Anderson, the guy canned by Arkansas, is in line for the St. John's job.
  13. MAC Hoops 18-19

    Bobby Hurley (ASU), Porter Moser (Loyola- Chicago) and Tim Cluess (Iona) have all turned down the St. John's job. Apparently, not the desirable job some thought it may be.

    Daniel's not that much of a loss (says the guy who found his ex-girlfriends much less attractive after they broke up with him).
  15. Maishe Dailey

    GT told me he's doing the graduate transfer thing.
  16. Maishe Dailey

    ...he's also not 6'11".
  17. 2019-2020 Akron Zips Basketball- Looking Forward

    ...and his mommy didn't have to pretend he was on the crew team and pay half a mill to get him in!
  18. Maishe Dailey

    Now I am afraid the Iowa Hawkeyes program is falling apart as kids are transferring out!
  19. Maishe Dailey

    Let's be honest here. A kid who was recruited to a Big 10 school generally has the talent to succeed in the MAC.
  20. Assistant Coaches

    I could see Dustin Ford being as a head coach at some point, but not now. Assistants generally move up to HC jobs either as a promotion where they are (and Groce is going nowhere for now) or they move on from a very successful program (which UA is not right now). A small college could take interest, but he's going nowhere in D1 as he's attached to Groce right now and Groce isn't having great success. Also, D1 programs are more likely to look for P5 assistants than MAC assistants.
  21. 2019 Preseason

    Surplus sale was not great. I was at the gate over by the field house a little early and was one of the first through the gate when they opened it only to find they opened up the southwest gate early so I ended up in a line of over 100 deep. Once I got in, there wasn't much left and I sense there wasn't a whole lot to start. The grab bags weren't great. The Athletic Department needs to take all of the leftover Matthew WIlson bobbleheads and ship them off to Missouri Western. Two grab bags= two MW bobbleheads.
  22. 2019-2020 Akron Zips Basketball- Looking Forward

    They did. My bad. I could see the situation where guys hang on to meet the new guy, then bail (similar to Antino).
  23. 2019-2020 Akron Zips Basketball- Looking Forward

    Good stuff. Thanks for the research. I suspect Buffalo transfers may come once they announce the new coach.
  24. Ole K.D........

    KD homers/Groce critics-

    As I recall, the Zips beat them in Puerto Rico. They used real hoops instead of peach baskets in that one!
