Looking at Georgia Southern's schedule page, it appears the MAC Men's Soccer Tournament may be returning this Fall.

Akron is really going to have a great RPI next year if they are able to win games.

On September 21, Akron will play at Marshall (the defending national champion)

what we know so far...regular season home games against Indiana and Penn State.

Road games at Marshall and Ohio State

shaping up to be a great schedule...Go, Zips !!!

They're new so I'll give them a break - understandably they don't yet understand the difference between Akron and Cleveland :-)

September 10 - Indiana  7 pm (Friday)

October 7 - Georgia Southern*  7 pm (Thursday)

October 13 - Penn State  TBA (Wednesday)

October 23 - BGSU*  7 pm (Saturday)

TBA - Georgia State*

 

 

 

Away:

September 15 - at Ohio State 7 pm (Wednesday)

September 21 - at Marshall 7 pm (Tuesday)

TBA - at WMU*

TBA - at NIU*

TBA -  at WVU*

 

*MAC

BGSU released their schedule today...

they play at Akron on October 23...which is not the reverse of what happened in 2019

if I am reading the BG schedule correctly, they host Georgia State on October 7 and Georgia Southern on October 9

we know that Akron hosts Georgia Southern on October 7.....Will Georgia State want to stay in Ohio and play the zips on October 9 or October 10?

personally, I do not like having only 2 days between matches (not enough time for the players to recover).  Also, the zips have a tough home game on October 13 (3 matches in 6 day period ...will lead to injuries.)

with Covid still in the picture, I am very surprised to see BGSU traveling across the country to play Gonzaga.

Yes, this announcement was made a couple months ago. https://www.record-courier.com/story/sports/college/2021/05/07/mac-has-reinstated-its-postseason-tourney-schedule-2020-21/4988094001/

“At my direction, I asked our championship staff to create models of how we could return our postseason events,” said MAC Commissioner Jon Steinbrecher in a press release. “Conference tournaments are pinnacle events that provide lifetime memories for those involved. I am pleased we are able to reinstate these events for the student-athletes.”

 

"The MAC is one of the only Division I conferences in the nation that's not hosting baseball and softball tournaments in 2021."

 

Huh???

I thought I read on the MAC website a few months back that there will be a 4-team tourney for both sports next Spring hosted by the higher seeded team?

I cannot recall a more competitive schedule in program history.  I hope the Zips are up for it.

This Zips team....with 13 new comers ......is going to have to prove themselves to the so called soccer experts.     The zips did not receive a single vote in the college soccer news top 30.

 

https://unitedsoccercoaches.org/rankings/college-rankings/ncaa-di-men/

 

The zips received 1 point (a 25th place vote) when the US soccer coaches did their pre season poll.

 

The zips will step on the field as decided under dogs in several games this year.    Diogo, Jason, Will Jackson, Carlo, Daniel, Dyson, Will Portman, Renato Kauzlaric, Ryan Kingsford, Malik Henry , Tobias Bak . Wan Kuzri, a very talented goal keeper and the 22 other zips are going to have to prove that they are top 25 team to their opponents and the US soccer coaches.

 

That being said, Wright State is a quality team.    The zips need a big crowd for the home opener on August 26 and this unproven team needs to get a home win and a road win at E. Lansing.   START PROVING IT on Aug 26 and Aug. 29......Soccer Zips.

 

Looking down the road, both polls have last year's college cup semifinalist Pitt ranked at #3.   The first article says that Pitt returns 10 out of 11 starters from that high powered offensive team.   Not sure when the students return........but the zips marketing department......needs to be working overtime....to get the AK rowdies out in force for that game.    Cub Cadet Field at FES.....needs to be packed for that Akron - Pittsburgh game

I prefer being unranked and having to prove ourselves.  We have experienced the opposite of late and it sucks missing out on big games in November!

Preach!

I like this team. I’ve met all but one of them now and will meet the remaining 2021 recruit tomorrow night. 
 

I challenge them to put ‘21 up on our NCAA Tournament banner. We haven’t had a year there since ‘18. I want to be with our team in Cary, NC in December 2021. Go Zips!!!
