  1. Are tickets still available for the championship game? If so I’m likely to up from San Diego...
  2. GoZips.com now has audio clips from the XM broadcast as well as the Yahoo! Sports Radio broadcast: http://www.gozips.com/sports/fball/2012-13.../201201039qzlhg
  3. CollegeSportsInfo.com has an interesting grid laying out conference realignment possibilities, detailing what schools make good candidates and why. Before getting your hopes up, it doesn't look good for any MAC school ...Conference Realignment Grid
  4. Since we're all looking forward to a championship run this year, I thought a few links from collegesoccernews.com discussing the UA Soccer team, recruits, and the 2009 season would be entertaining. Note that they won't release their formal recruiting class rankings until August, but we should rank high on the list.Collegesoccernews.com entries:2009 Recruiting Class and Team ReviewsIt's not too early to be thinking about 2009Preseason RankingLooking at the Parada All-America list, we have Chad Barson and Zarek Valentin as incoming freshman with 2009 All-America honors. I also thought I'd read somewhere that Perry Kitchen is an Akron recruit but I couldn't find confirmation.2009 Parade All-America Soccer Teams

  6. Why not try to play Pitt annually in basketball and football (especially if they'd agree to playing at our place every other year). There seems to be enough northeastern Ohio - Pittsburgh animosity that this could evolve into a pretty good rivalry.
  7. The APS plan on using it for some time.

  8. I wouldn't mind seeing the Zips play some west coast basketball a little further south, say against SDSU or USD. (San Diego has Sea World and LegoLand and Disney isn't that far away ...)
  9. Zips fan and alum ('95 & '01) in San Diego, CA.
  10. Here is an announcement on the Nike agreement from suburbanite.com:http://www.thesuburbanite.com/news/x199299...-deal-with-Nike
  11. Does anyone know the plans for Central Hower High School? I believe the school was closed in 2005/2006 and has been reopened as the temporary East HS while construction is completed on the new East. Are there plans to re-open Central Hower after the renovation of the Akron Public School district or will it be shuttered after renovations are complete? If it is to be shuttered, what the chances UofA purchases the property for future expansion (or just to knock it down)?
  12. Here's the link to the Parade Soccer All-America team:http://www.parade.com//articles/editions/2..._America_SoccerZips 2008 signees on the team include:Kofi Sarkodie Huber Heights, Ohio SeniorTeal Bunbury Prior Lake, Minn. SeniorAlso on the list:Ben Speas Stow, Ohio JuniorWho is a part of the 2009 recruiting class (as posted previously on Zipsnation).I'm not sure if any of the other juniors on the list have committed to Akron, although there is another junior Ohioan that made the team: Chad Barson Lewis Center, Ohio (defender). Chad is the #12 recruit and a 4-star prospect on the list for 2009 from TopDrawerSoccer.com (from the same post referenced above).
  13. LosAngelesZipFan - One of these days I'd LOVE to say goodbye forever to Ohio winters BUT I can't stand the thought of not being able to drive 15 minutes to the JAR to watch our Zips. Same with football season as disappointing as those have been for the most part. Can't wait to make the drive north in a little while and feel for ya. Great to know there are Zips fans all around the country and as far away as LA and HI cheering Akron on. Have fun this afternoon watching the game. GO ZIPS!!!...and at least one in PittsburghAnd a few in San Diego. Good luck to the team tonight. Go Zips!
  14. Da'von is listed on the Zips roster on ESPN.com. The roster on GoZips.com is still from 8/19
  15. Speaking of last years recruits, is there any news on Da'von Moore? There have been a couple different rumors posted here on Zipsnation but nothing seems to be confirmed. Is he still our recruit? Did he enroll at UA or is he playing at a prep school?
