    Another likable kid.  When you see things like this it is easy to understand why they enjoy each other so much.  So much different than that hastily assembled squad in Groce's first year.   It also makes it clear that chemistry is something Groce looks at in putting together a team.

     

    As I recall, Wynn is not eligible this year due to the transfer rules.

    Offensive linemen are usually 275-325 lbs, but are some of the most fit people on earth. Weight doesn't always indicate conditioning/health issues. I remember seeing Anderson's highlights in the other thread. He moves very well, is an outside threat, and would be one heck of a challenge to move out of the paint or get around (assuming he buys into Groce's fundamentally-sound system of boxing out - usually). 6'8" 275 lbs and dribbling by defenders - yeah, I want him.

     

     

    At the end of the day, if he can play, contribute and gets with the program, I don't care if he's 5 feet tall and weights four bills!

    Thought this guy was a '20 offer who would be on a roster this year, but obviously not.  VerbalCommits dot com has him listed as being a JUCO sophomore.  Anyway, we're still in the running. (Along with Cleveland State 🤢, New Mexico State, and Lamar.)

     

     

     

    Looks like he's on the Big Dog fitness program.

     

    This is an instance where we can root against our old friend Dru Joyce III.

    I saw this a while back.  I just hate these damn stories and they are way too common.


  5. Just really damn disappointing across the board.  I looked at the basketball season as something in the distance that's promise helped us all through the isolation of the COVID mess.  A chance to get out and return to normalcy.  With this policy and the COVID numbers again peaking, it's very clear that's not going to be the case and I'll be sitting my living room watching the games instead of there with the energy of the crowd.  I never fathomed that when I shipped off the check for my tickets months ago that we'd end up here.

     

    I don't know how Groce and the staff will survive without my input from the stands. 

     

    P.S.-  this post should not be interpreted as an invitation to a COVID policy debate.

  6. Details from the link-

     

    AKRON, Ohio – Akron Zips men's basketball season is rapidly approaching and we are committed to keeping our season ticket holders and fans updated as it pertains to attending games and cheering on the blue and gold at James A. Rhodes Arena.
     
    The safety of our student-athletes, coaches, and Zips Nation is of the utmost importance. In that spirit and with the guidance of health officials, we recognize there will be a reduced capacity for spectators at all home contests this season.
     
    To accommodate those season ticket holders who want to attend games this season, we have developed a ticket lottery system that will serve as a fair and equitable process for distributing the limited number of tickets available.
     
    First, all home contests will be pre-packaged into sets of mini plans. Season ticket holders who wish to enter the lottery and are selected will have the opportunity to select one of these mini plans.
     
    To allow season ticket holders the opportunity to improve their lottery standing, annual giving levels and priority point balances will be finalized on November 6, 2020. After standings are finalized, season ticket holders will be assigned a date and time to make their package and seat selections. We anticipate this date to be approximately 15 days prior to the season tip-off.
     
    Each season ticket holder selected in the lottery will be permitted to choose quantities of mini plans up to the number of season tickets renewed on their account. Should there be ticket availability remaining after all lottery selections have been made, a second round of lottery selections will be initiated.

    As we anticipate competition this winter, we are also working towards an arena reseating for the 2021-22 season. All season ticket holders who renew their seats for the 2020-21 season or convert their support to a 100% tax-deductible charitable contribution will be exempt from the reseating process. This will ensure you have the opportunity to upgrade or maintain seat location for the 2021-22 season. 

    Please email tickets@uakron.edu for more information or to get connected to your representative today.

     

    Translation- better your odds by giving us more money.  I'm think my $65 GA tickets aren't going to get me much.  EPSN+ here I come.


  7. Email from UA ticketing this evening-

    I understand social distancing and limiting the volume and location in the stadium of fans but not sure I understand there being no fans admitted at all. Other conferences are limiting their numbers and even Ohio high schools are allowing 15% of stadium capacity. If a Zips game at Infocision reached 15% capacity wouldn’t that be close to the usual in-game game day attendance we are used to anyway?

     

    I hope the attendance guidelines are modified a bit although I do agree you don’t want to be rubbing elbows with strangers at any events in 2020.

     

     

     

    The last elbow rubbing I did was at the UA/PCCC basketball game at the JAR.  Sigh.
