The Nittany Lions roll into town Wednesday night. Their record currently stands at 6-4-2, 0-3 in the big ten (losses to Indiana, Michigan, & Michigan State). Item of note from the recap of their most recent match, a loss to Michigan State (4-6-2, 1-1-1) ... "Playing without leading goal scorer Julian Cardona (Lincoln, Neb.), who was not available after being called into duty with the Puerto Rico National Team, ..." I like our chances Wednesday night. Would like to see another big turnout, including LOTS of students on the hill. Go Zips!

Still one of the most ridiculous, classless things I've ever heard of. Love that Nano ran over to the student section after the game winner, ripped off his shirt and taunted the crowd. Typically not in favor of that type of stuff, but they totally deserved it.

Before the game against Penn State last year in State College, some of the PSU supporters stole the Akron players' uniforms.

Dear Zips Fan,

We look forward to seeing you at 7:30 p.m. tonight for our men’s soccer match vs. Penn State at FirstEnergy Stadium – Cub Cadet Field.

As a reminder, umbrellas are not permitted inside FirstEnergy Stadium - Cub Cadet Field. At the stadium gates there will be public bins in which, if you so choose, you may leave an umbrella during the game.

Thank you for your cooperation. Go Zips!

Sincerely,
The University of Akron Department of Athletics


This is from an email I got today. Expect this game to have poor attendance due to weather conditions.
Forget about the Buckeyes, Go Zips!!

I'd rather it read like this:

That is the answer...sell cheap ponchos with Akron logo in the front and back. I bought a rain suit for my daughter and myself for the women's soccer games. There is no way someone uses an umbrella at a highly attended game without infringing on another Zips fans sight lines. CK has been spoiled by the info where there are so few fans you could put up a tailating tent and not intrude on anybody. ;)

Ponchos are better than umbrellas all around. Ponchos are better at keeping you dry, better at not inadvertently blocking someone else's view, cheaper to buy, easier to carry folded up in a pocket, etc., etc. Seems like a no-brainer to encourage fans to bring ponchos any time you tell them they can't bring umbrellas.
