For some reason I have it in my head that their first game in on Groundhog's Day.  I know I saw that somewhere.  That would be February 2nd.  So that would obviously have to be over a spring break trip to Florida.

Isn't that a week or so earlier than the season usually starts? I feel like in the past, the season usually started around the 10th. I'm not mad about it though!

February 2nd seems awfully early for NEO baseball.  That's 6 weeks before the snow melts. Lol

Youngstown State announced their schedule last month and they start the season on February 14, so we'll see when the Zips schedule is announced. Should be announced in the next few weeks!

Strange we only have one game scheduled with them. That would cut travel expenses either way.

I looked around at other school's baseball schedules. Some of them aren't out yet. I pieced together what I found out there.

 

Being an independent we will not play all of the MAC schools this season.

 

3/20, 21, 22 vs. Miami Oh
3/27, 28, 29 vs. Toledo
4/1 at Kent
4/3, 4, 5 at Ball State
4/24, 25, 26 at Ohio U
4/28 vs Kent
4/29 vs Youngstown St

Thanks for that info Spin, I did not know that.  Just assumed we would be fully in the MAC this season.  And thanks for the work on the schedule research too.

When they  made the announcement, they said they would become a member of the MAC in 2021. That's the last I heard.

It wouldn't be pretty in year 1. May not be pretty in year 2 but they have to ease into it

 

Our football team is in its 27th year in the MAC, and is currently winless. Why not just join and start building the tradition back up?

Why the delay to join the MAC? Logistics?

 

Because change comes mighty slow when it comes to the MAC.

 

Unless maybe they think they're a Power Five and have their schedules done for 2035 already. 💀

This took about ten seconds of research.

Enjoy

Anyone want to bet that the Zips scheduled opening series actually gets played?

The weather in Florence during February is only marginally better than it is in Akron so I'll go with "no."

Any takers?

It's been on gozips for awhile. Been thinking of making the trip to Florence. Depending on what the weather looks like.

And Spin, please, I'm begging you, change your avatar. 😉 

 

Why? I thought that was a good representation of the 50 football fans who showed up this year. 🏳️
