  1. Rank Akron's FBS Head Coaches

    I rooted for and supported every coach that led the Zips, but if I had to rank them, my list is as follows: 1. Coach Arth Based on the results, I do not see that anyone else deserves to be on the list.
  2. I know its early and the signing period has just recently closed. But, are there any rumors on grad transfers or other transfers that might be joining the team this year? The spring game is less than 2 months away, but I need some Zips football news. Especially if that news says that some good DL players will be on the team next fall. That is the area that needs some help, at least on paper. Go Zips.
  3. 2019 Schedule

    Great out of conference schedule. In the MAC, you play the schedule that you are dealt, with no complaints. I do not like two Tuesday night games late in the season. Attendance will be sparse as in the past seasons, especially if bad weather is on the horizon. Many season ticket holders will think about their renewal, since we will be paying for 6 games and going to 4. However, it is a better situation than last year with that concert counting as a game.
  4. I went through the list of Bowden's 2019 recruits on ZipsNation, and per 24/7, it looks like many have not signed with any school. That is unless the website is not updating after Wednesday. What I thought looked like a good class, does not look very good. Great job coach Arth. You set a good foundation for a future MAC championship.
  5. 2019 Recruiting

    We need some last minute D linemen, hopefully both ends and tackles. Finish strong coach.
  6. Possible Candidates

    The comments regarding the new coach are very short sighted. Akron football is a business. In business, there has to be contingency plans. Contingency A, B, C, and D should be laid out on an annual basis. If Larry does not have a list of potential hires ready to go, then he needs to go back to the Golden Dome and pray that Touchdown Jesus will rescue him and all of us Zip fans.
  7. Ian Kipp, sophomore quarterback from Mentor. This kid is the real deal. He can throw, he can run, and he commands the huddle. He will probably go big time, but the Zips should offer now and be very persistent. Mentor coaches have allegedly said that he is better than Mitchell Tribusky.
  8. Critiquing Coach Bowden

    Great discussions. Nothing will happen until the end of the season. Let's beat BG and hopefully win one of the other three games and go bowling. Does anyone know the final decisions with Nebraska? Will Akron get the $1.1mm or is it lost since Nebraska played BC?
  9. Game 6—Eastern Michigan Eagles

    TW is doing ok, but this board has him as the next coming. The comments here have him over-rated. I hope he grows into the legend, but give him some time. For now Pohl is the answer. Long time reader, first time responder.
