Big day.  Big game.  Excitement is building!

At least in Akron. The Bowling Green board has exactly three comments on the game right now. Is it because they have been beaten down for so long they dare not to hope when a big game is coming up? 52 years is a long time to wait which is why I was rooting for them last year.

Bowling Green is going to be really good next year if they can avoid the transfer bug. The only seniors they have that played meaningful minutes are Frye (who left the team already) and Marlon Sierra (big that plays ~10 minutes a game). They have a lot of young, promising players that should pair nicely with Turner and Plowden. Huger has done a really good job of building a sustainable program.

Is Elton gone from PD?  There is no Zip coverage.  It's all OSU all the time.  ABJ seems solely focused on the local teams.

Yes, the PD downsized last season right after college basketball season.

It is kind of ridiculous. In their sports menu they have a section for Ohio State and then another section for College Sports where Akron used to end up and there used to be a reasonable number of stories about Akron and the MAC. Today in the college section there are 39 stories. 35 are related to Ohio State, the other four are a basketball story each about Case Western, John Carroll, the Akron Kent game on January 31st and a Michigan college football coach who was fired after saying he would have dinner with Hitler. Quite the local Northeast Ohio college sports coverage there.

Lots of orange in the crowd.  Some even sitting where the Canadians used to sit: section 1-A.  Otherwise not sure about the crowd.  Jayden has new hairstyle.   Banks dressed.

Against a team like BG it's going to be important to get some quality bench minutes. They sub out a lot so their players will have fresh legs during crunch time.

As painful as the EMU game was, I think it gave the coaches a little faith in the freshmen subs.

Zips are doing a far better job of slowing down Turner than BG is doing on LCJ.  Somebody needs to step up and help LCJ on offense in the second half.

Nothing but stupid there. 

But BG came out if that debacle with only one point.  Sure would feel better with 9 point lead.  Good minutes for Dawson .  X needs to step up
