A Plea For Help

Recommended Posts

Hey guys and gals,  remember when the Western Michigan match was cancelled due to an electrical outage at FES-CCF?  Remember how mad we all were, how outraged at the U and the Athletic Office?  Remember some were even moved to e-mail and write letters about the situation?   Well, I know all of your are soccer fans, but I also know you are Zips fans as well.  I don’t know if you follow the other Forums on ZNO, but there’s a grave situation happening to one of our 3 Nationally ranked teams, the track and field squad.  The outdoor facility has degraded to a point where it is unsafe to host meets, and so, the two outdoor meets that Akron hosts annually are actually going to be hosted - at Youngstown State.  Embarrassing?  In a nutshell, the team has been asking for repairs but they have not occurred, and the reigning MAC men’s indoor champs and women’s defending outdoor champs have to go to YSU.  Also, some of the athletes have revealed they don’t even have locker room facilities, and have to change in a public restroom!  The coaches and athletes obviously deserve better, and are trying to make the best of a bad situation, but if ALL Zip fans would voice that same displeasure we felt on that Saturday night last Fall to the administration, it will at least let them Know someone cares and that the program, which by the way is a net revenue producer, is important enough to do something so next year this doesn’t happen.  Thanks for “listening”.

It seems some cost/benefit decisions are being made and there will inevitably be some losers. I for one would not be opposed to more collaboration between UA and YSU.
