  1. Our spoiled society is devoid of discipline and sacrifice. We get what we deserve.
  2. Still waiting for your reply. Name a single FCS conference that offered Akron a spot over the past 10-15 years.
  3. Please, blame it on the conference? Which other, larger, stronger conferences have lined up to offer entry to Akron?
  4. I wonder if USC will be eliminating their crew program? Aunt Becky got her kid into school just in time.
  5. This analysis means even less than most. Each year different schools have different needs from a position standpoint.
  6. These analyses are meaningless, especially at the mid-major level. Ohio is always fairly low yet is consistently near the top of the league performance wise. Intra-conference rankings are also based on raw numbers - Ohio had far fewer openings for 2020 and thus a smaller class. I saw an article the other day that indicated that many/most current NFL players from the MAC were just 2-star recruits out of high school. Shows you that it's about finding the right kids for your program and then coaching them up.
  7. There are times when you row the boat and others when you bale out the water. This period calls for the latter.
  8. Anyone who is throwing money away on a self-sponsored NASCAR team - a sport that is absolutely dying before our very eyes - cannot be described as whip smart. Okay, so he's a "gutter" king. Wow. Go any Tuesday at lunchtime to the Rockne's on Steels Corners. Kaulig and his CFO have lunch at the bar - same seats each week - and Kaulig bitches openly about how most of his businesses do not make money. He was looking for a way to dump Kaulig Media the last I heard. He's a paper millionaire, similar to our president who is at best a paper billionaire. Lots of self-promotion. Real rich guys don't do that. Wouldn't be surprised to see that house of cards collapse.
  9. Doesn't this send the message that perhaps mid-major football is not a marketable product in Akron and environs? As much as we might wish it were otherwise, it seems silly to continue throwing money at the problem. Don't raise the specter of Acme-Zip games, either - a "papered" crowd thanks to nearly free tickets from a once-dominant retailer is not proof of pent-up demand for a D1 football program.
  10. But if she would just put on a little makeup and change her hair, your buddies would be first in line to sleep with her too.
  11. And what is your proposed alternative to the MAC?
  12. I'm sure Title IX prevented the elimination of one more sport to reach 16. I wonder about the mention of scholarship reductions. Guessing football and soccer both will lose a handful of scholarships - football may more than a handful. Personnel cuts will impact marketing and communications, I would guess. Perhaps an associate AD or two as well.
  13. It's going to be interesting to see how a school like Miami handles this inevitable pruning process. I do not see how a mid-size school like Miami can continue to support FBS football, basketball AND varsity hockey. Something's gotta give. Lots of pain for all MAC programs as well as programs like Marshall et al.
