  1. It does not look like any of the posters on this topic watched the last two games. The team looked better than it has all year, and we were one fumble away from 2 wins. JU is a better leader, the team responds to him, and he is a better passer. He gives the Zips the best chance to win.
  2. Yes, let's go with Irons and lose 9 games and it should have been 10 against a FCS team. Are you related to Irons?
  3. Wasting too many opportunities.
  4. Need to get the running game going.
  5. I never saw this kid play, so I do not have an opinion on how good he is as a RB. However, I know that we have Kellom who has red shirted, and I am very happy with him. If I remember correctly, he was first team Ohio D1 his senior season. He ran for over 1900 yards and that included sitting out 6 second half's of games since his team was up so big and they pulled the starters. Imagine the number of yards he would have gotten if he played full games. A lot of kids want to go away, so I do not know what happened here. It does seem odd that no P5 schools came calling.
  6. I posted a MaxPreps article yesterday that showed the same statistics, but it was challenged due to past experiences, so I tried to do some follow-up. Please look at the prior posts from yesterday.
  7. Bigjim's prediction is that Buffalo will unfortunately win, but with Akron covering the spread which is currently Buff -11.0. I think that the Bulls will be motivated to get in a bowl game, and as was stated above, the Zips will play some redshirting freshman which may hurt this game's effort but help in the future. I hope I am wrong, and the Zips dominate like they did at NIU. T minus 7 hours and counting. Go Zips!!!
  8. https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/ncaafb/espn-reportedly-makes-unfortunate-bowl-game-decision/ar-AA14N3y5?ocid=msedgntp&cvid=3c7d21185674455cad9a460b0302262e One bowl game has been cut, and there are 40 games scheduled. But, there are 79 teams that have qualified and 80 are needed for 40 games. Buffalo would be the 80th team if they win over Akron or some other provisions would need to be made.
  9. I am sorry that you had issues with MaxPreps in the past, but it looks like they got it correct this time. I found two additional websites to confirm that Choctaw HS is 11-1 this football season. One of the sites was the Choctaw HS website. I could not find any data to confirm Wassel's stats on these sites though. It looks like they lost their opener and have rattled off 11 consecutive wins. And they are playing for the state championship tonight. Go Steele Wassel, Go Choctaw High School, Go Zips!!!
  10. T minus 25 hours until kickoff and counting. Since the Zips beat NIU, I have not seen many (if any) predictions. Let's have the board predict the outcome. My prediction will be posted later today. Go Zips!!!
  11. https://www.bing.com/ck/a?!&&p=e6b26d60e64c4a1dJmltdHM9MTY2OTg1MjgwMCZpZ3VpZD0xNDA4ZWIzYS1lZTQzLTZhNGYtMzBjZC1lMGM1ZWY5MzZiYmYmaW5zaWQ9NTMxNQ&ptn=3&hsh=3&fclid=1408eb3a-ee43-6a4f-30cd-e0c5ef936bbf&psq=steele+wassel+high+school&u=a1aHR0cHM6Ly93d3cubWF4cHJlcHMuY29tL2F0aGxldGUvc3RlZWxlLXdhc2VsL1daUmNsUE1VRWVpQXhLa2tLOUhJRGcvZGVmYXVsdC5odG0&ntb=1 I found this Maxpreps article (if I copied it correctly), that details Steele Wassel's season. Based on this article, he has played fantastic and it looks like he is still in the playoffs. If this is correct, we cannot lose him. He will be a great Zip. Go Zips!!!
  12. That is the article that I found to make my comments. I just did not post a link, sorry.
  13. I am a little surprised that 7-5 Toledo -2.5 is favored over 9-3 Ohio in the MAC Championship game. Maybe it is because Ohio's QB is injured and out.
  14. My guess (and it is speculation) is that the MAC wants to get the game over with ASAP in the event that Buffalo wins and becomes bowl eligible. Bowl games participants have started to be named, and the MAC wants to ensure that Buffalo is not left behind if they become bowl eligible. I believe that the MAC has affiliations with 6 bowls, and as of now, there are only 5 bowl eligible teams in the MAC. A Buffalo win will get the number to 6. catdaddyp please comment if I am off base.
