  1. This was a disappointing year. We started off so well at the beginning - the Pitt game, the crowd and atmosphere at the Indiana game but then the Ohio State game happened and I don’t think Akron was ever the same. The only game I thought that they played well after that was vs Penn State but that was only in the first 30 minutes. Bowling Green was a blowout but we finished every chance we had in that game. Starting with the Michigan game it just seemed like the fire and excitement from the beginning of the year had evaporated. Losing vs NIU was excused because they were good but losing vs Western Michigan when the MAC tourney was on the line should have given pause. Tonight’s game was a microcosm of the entire season - start well (we started the season so well) but then poor execution and a mental mistake leads to a goal for SC (Ohio State / WMU) We fight back but can’t finish and they mercifully end the game. Thanks to our seniors for their efforts but to be honest - this might be one of the most disappointing senior classes ever. Championship Game as freshman and not even a win in the NCAA tourney after that. If you told me that when Akron was destroying MSU 5-1 in the national semifinal that they wouldn’t win another tourney game in those freshman at the time careers I would have told you that you were crazy. But here we are.
  2. I would love Akron to be in…but in all honesty…how could they be in? If you can’t make your conference top 4, that is bad. Especially with so few teams in the MAC. I’m not sure they deserve it, no matter their RPI. That being said I hope they make it, but if they don’t they only have themselves to blame.
  3. Did we get a penalty kick? At about 80 minutes live stats said we were awarded a penalty kick but it didn’t seem like we actually took one? Thanks.
  4. Let me copy off of Top Drawer Soccer - AKRON IS BACK!!! Great game by both teams - a draw is a fair result but if we continue to improve - watch out!! Great crowd and atmosphere - it was a fun night. Go Zips!
  5. AkronRick - the scrum at the end started with above described situation. In my opinion the ref let the game get out of control. Pitt was constantly complaining and it just got gradually worse. The end was just a carryover from something that should have been taken care of during the game. #19 is an aggressive player and he is a good player - but his actions were pathetic.
  6. On a positive note - very good win in spite of the ref. He let the game get out of hand and the Pitt coach didn’t even try to contain his players at the end. Go Zips!
  7. .#19 of Pitt is a dirty player. He took out our #10 and while our guy was on the ground called him a fuc….. puss….. and believe me that wasn’t the only incident. #19 this message is for you - Go home - loser.
  8. TennZip I agree with almost everything you say - but the Nick Scott goal was a bad cross that just happened to turn into a great shot. I won’t complain though. Beautiful night to watch soccer. Hopefully a big crowd for the next game.
  9. Just watching the stats it looks like they were dominated for the first 65 minutes or so. What changed? They really came on strong.
  10. Wow, Akron looked good. Crisp quick passing, quick switching of the field and speed. Great start!
  11. zippypitt I agree with you. Colin scored a huge goal vs Stanford on the way to the College Cup vs Stanford but over the past two years he has disappeared. Good luck to him but we will be fine without him.
  12. 3-0 down? Wow.....this season can’t end soon enough.
  13. Does anyone know the current policy on fans? I thought it was parents only but today’s game looked like there were more than just those individuals. Dewine is increasing the limit for fans with the pro teams in Ohio....why can’t Akron do the same?
  14. Agreed - and Shookalook as well. I don’t think Jackson is capable of scoring enough goals using only his left foot.
