  1. Non-Conference Future Schedules

    The fact that you called (without naming names) Trump a neo-Nazi sympathizer was political. It is your opinion, not fact, yet you treated as fact.
  2. Non-Conference Future Schedules

    They do a nice job with recruit visits. Very personalized and welcoming. Did you just want to take a swipe and expect it to go unchallenged? Just as I thought. They don't pass the liberal litmus test.Typical. Say, let's not turn this political...after they already have. What a load of crap.
  3. Non-Conference Future Schedules

    I don't follow Liberty. Can you enlighten me and share exactly what was said that makes him a neo-nazi? (Or if too inappropriate, share a link) Or did he simply con comply with a leftist litmus test?
  4. Bowdens 2019 Recruits

    All of this remains to be seen.
  5. 2019 Recruiting

    Not a lot to get excited about in the class, so far. Brandon Council, from the 2016 class played like a stud until he was injured last season. He was the OL, it seemed.
  6. 2019 Recruiting

    Gosh, now you know how it feels. 8 have listened to lost of you pull the same crap for the last e years. Arth has shown nothing to be excited about. Recruits, to date, are not remotely impressive. Leftovers, mostly.
  7. 2019 Recruiting

    I am really happy for everyone who wanted to see the Zips move to 1AA. We are well on our way....
  8. Zips in the NFL

    Davis earned this invite. He put in a great season. Best of luck.
  9. Zips in the NFL

    Chargers LB Jatavis Brown will miss the remainder of the season
  10. Welcome Tom Arth!

    Typically, assistants are assigned to recruit a certain geographic are, although they are also involved with the recruits for their position. The head coach is usually reserved for the more desirable players.
  11. How do you know it wasn't? Oh, yeah, you don't. As others have mentioned, there are always 2 sides of a story.
  12. 2019 Recruiting

    If the Zips get 2 decent recruits from this class, they are lucky. Most of the top recruits go with early signing day. I just hope all of this did not transpire too late for Zip recruits to find another spot. 3 weeks out from early signing day (Bowden firing) was not a lot of time for recruits. There is no handbook for, "What happens if the coach who recruits me gets fired right before signing day?"
  13. Possible Candidates

    You get a decent amount of kids who were academic non-qualifiers for Div I, at the DII level. At D3, you often get kids who are academic all stars but not football all stars.
  14. And he did not bother calling or texting the coaches to see if he had the wrong date or time? Does not sound he took ownership of the situation.
  15. Welcome Tom Arth!

    Filling spots with FCS recruits is not exciting.
  16. Welcome Tom Arth!

    Woody changed the play at the line, frequently. I think with Kato just discovering the wonder of studying film, it is unlikely you would want him calling plays at the line. He might be more ready for that next year. Kato's ability to read the D seemed to improve tremendously as he began to take it upon himself to study more film.
  17. Welcome Tom Arth!

    This board allows no excuse for injuries.
  18. Welcome Tom Arth!

    I saw no splash with Getsy. Arthxs resume is underwhelming. Let's hope he has more talent than his record indicates.
  19. Five Questions for Prospective Coaches

    Tell me about a time one of your players got in trouble with the law and how you handled it.
  20. Five Questions for Prospective Coaches

    Give me your elevator speech for choosing Akron over Ohio State.
  21. 2019 Recruiting

    Seriously? It is unusual for assistants to stay and I am betting it will not be tough for Mounds to find a better paying gig.
  22. Game 1—@Nebraska Cornhuskers

    Are you happy if we he gave the farm away instead of demanding to be paid?
  23. Critiquing Coach Bowden

    Bowden delivered for the U, first bowl win, MAC East title, signature P5 upsets, including first B10 win, most wins in a season as a D1 team, 4 consecutive Wagon Wheel wins, etc.... so far, LW just blows a lot of hot air. The firing of Bowden will only be a success if he replaces him with some one who produces superior results. So claiming the firing demonstrates his competence is ignorant until we are a couple of seasons removed. Strikes against him: 1. No change in game attendance, 2. No dramatic improvements in the budget 3. Firing a head coach two weeks before signing day without having a replacement ready. Who knows what the fallout from that will cost the program 4. Sounds like he went soft with negotiations with Nebraska, despite all of the bravado for the press 5. Was at the helm when decision to focus on recruiting primarily in Ohio was made 6. No notable accomplishments
  24. Critiquing Coach Bowden

    You gave zero examples of independent team success...nothing that ties directly to Williams. Plus, it was under his watch that the mandate to focus on recruiting primarily from Ohio was pushed. Oh, but you probably believe the best talent comes from Ohio, too.
  25. Game 1—@Nebraska Cornhuskers

    William's is a fool and deserves to be fired if he will accept that deal.
