  1. In hindsight, the decision to cancel the tournament was the right decision and probably saved lives. I am healthy sitting at the computer and thankful for my health and the health of my family. I hope all Zip fans stay healthy to cheer for the Zips next year.
  2. I wish Jaden the best wherever he lands. I thought he was always a great cheerleader on the bench. He slimmed down and played with more intensity during the season. He had some great minutes and was scoring on some nice assists by Jackson. He also worked hard on defense and pulled down some nice rebounds. However, I think it was in the Ohio game where a player drove the lane and Jaden did not move to block his shot and the guy had a layup. Groce pulled him and I don't think he saw the court again. I felt bad for him but when you are at the end of the bench there is just no room for error. I was looking forward to seeing how much he progressed next season.
  3. I would like to give a shout out and well done to the above and also Clark Griswold who predicted the 3 guard starting rotation of Jackson Banks and Cheese along with Riak and Williams. I was always concerned about the number of transfers but you were correct that Groce was just getting players who wanted to be in his system and would work within his system. Nobody predicted that Groce would be coach of the year or that Jackson would be player of the year. The Zips finished the season strong and beat Buffalo in Buffalo. I cannot remember the last time that happened. We had a great season!!! It just ended too soon.
  4. I believe that you would have to do that for all sports that were affected by the cancellations. It would be very costly but I think it would be a great idea to give student athletes the option.
  5. Bizarre, just saw a trailer for "A quiet place, part 2"
  6. I am not happy with the decision but I respect it considering there is a national emergency. We can watch the game on ESPN plus or the CBS sports network. “The best way to prevent a catastrophic explosion of new cases in the next few weeks, many experts think, is to break potential chains of transmission by preventing sick people from coming in close contact with healthy ones, whether it means canceling conferences or relying on individual decisions to avoid crowded public transportation or postpone weddings,”
  7. So basically, our basketball game will look like a Tuesday night Akron home football game from this past season.
  8. The Ivy League Cancels Conference Basketball Tournaments- I know that this may be the correct thing to do but I feel bad for all the seniors who will never get to play their last game. I think holding the tournament without fans may be the best compromise if they go in that direction. What about the Cavs? How do you justify canceling the MAC tournament only to have the Cavs fill the arena next week?
  9. I also purchased my tickets on Travel Zoo. I am a season ticket holder in the lower bowl and have been for many years and I am always upset when I buy tickets from Akron I always get sent to the upper level of the Q. I have complained and my season ticket agent indicates that the seating is made by Akron and the big donors get the lower level seats near the floor.
  10. Tribbles second dunk was one of the best dunks I have seen from an Akron Guard. He was fearless going over the defender and to the hoop. Also, I was curious how bad the refs were and reviewed LCJ's first blocking foul that looked like a charge and Williams last foul that looked like a flop. Both calls were good calls. On the blocking foul Jackson did not move parallel but moved his leg forward causing the contact. On Williams last foul he hit the shooter on the arm as he was shooting and it had nothing to do with the flop or sticking the leg out.
  11. Travel Zoo also has discounted tickets.
  12. I think this is a great bracket for the Zips. We had 4 losses and the only team that we lost to on our side of the bracket are the bulls and we just beat them at their place.
  13. Great game by the Zips. Nice to see Williams make some 3 balls and lead the team in scoring. Kent killed us on the offensive boards but some of the rebounds were deep rebound and Akron had position but went to the Kent player. The refs were bad both ways. They let the teams play and then called some stupid fouls. The Jackson blocking foul was pure crap but the same ref made the same call against Kent so it even out. With all of the turnaround from last season I did not think we would win the MAC. LCJ kept saying "trust the process" He was right. Congrats to the team and to Groce for a great regular season. Let's finish the job and get back to NCAA.
  14. I believe if we end up in a tie with Bowling Green we are considered co-conference champions. They just get the higher seed because of the tie breaker and probably the automatic NIT bid. (I remember this nugget of information from a prior year when we tied for conference regular season)
  15. As a Zips fan I always wondered what it would be like to have the best guard in the league. Now I know. LCJ for MAC player of the year.
