    Astute observations! Zips' opponents have historically feared our counter attack too much to high press us. The opposition is no longer afraid. There is blood in the water and the Sharks are circling. Passing forward is not always the best decision, but passing laterally (or back) is too often the default with this squad, ESPECIALLY among the underclassmen, who have evidently been coached to do so. Older players are usually more discriminating with the ball. Until we clean up our possession, we are inviting the high press feeding frenzy. Opponents must be punished for pressing our possession along the back. Overall, passing accuracy (completion rate) has been atrocious of late, which is a more fundamental problem.

    It’s very sad that the fans don’t get updated in nothing. I haven’t seen nothing on Twitter, school website, news paper etc. this is unbelievable to me. I think something has to change how do you support a team that the athletic department, social media don’t even support.

    According to Gainesville and Kentucky fan articles, the transfer sit-out rule has been waived for at least one more year. So we should see Mr. Castaneda on the floor this fall for the Zips, dressed, and dropping buckets in-game.

    As meaningless as it largely is, I enjoy reading other college coach's Twitter feeds hyping up the team and recruiting and what not. It's just cool to see and gets me excited. We have a few assistants that do some stuff, but nothing close to what other places do. This coaching staff has a serious identity problem. Nobody knows anything about them or their personalities, and therefore, the common Zip fan following social media has no reason to care. Maybe if they connected directly with the fans more, both sides would be more inclined to support each other. I don't know, I'm just bored by Akron football right now.

    There are no secrets around the MAC. Zips have had trouble with the high press since the get go and now every opponent is using it to keep the offense bottled up in their own end. BG played with confidence and with that unrelenting wind favoring them in the first half they dominated. Yet they couldn't score. Second half I expected the Zips to use that wind too, but it was BG who played like their hair was on fire. Our goalie was the only Zip who matched their intensity and he deserved better. Pacheco certainly could have made some kind of difference but good teams rise to the occasion. Today that didn't happen.

    This will pass on April 28th. Going forward all D1 athletes in ALL sports can transfer one time and not have to sit out a season. http://www.ncaa.org/about/resources/media-center/news/di-council-adopts-new-transfer-legislation

    I think it's great they have an alum leading the program. I wouldn't be holding my breath regarding an immediate resurrection, though. Outside of Kent's glory year, he has a career record of 179-200 (.472) and a conference record of 68-138 (.330) (!!). At this point in the offseason, I'm rooting for the Hurons to get their proverbial sh*t together and help lift the lower half of the conference, but I'm none too optimistic here with a sample size of 11 seasons. I think Stan Heath is what he is...an average to below average coach. Hope I'm wrong.

    Agreed. Will Meyer had an outstanding game and deserves to be mentioned by name.

    Not to get off-topic in this thread, but this is exactly how it should be. Coaches can leave a program without having to sit out the next season, so players should be able to as well. The one-time cap is nice as well in preventing the constant transferring of an individual athlete.

    @bigzipguy I did. I can't realistically see that happening given current RPI, limited number of teams in the tournament, and not enough games to establish a resume for it. For anyone wondering about goal differential, this is what I came up with as far as current goal differential in MAC games played. Please feel free to check my numbers. If the Zips win and Falcons lose on Sunday, we would be no worse than tied on goal differential in conference games since a team obviously cannot win or lose by less than 1 goal.

    My post shows what is mathematically possible without any reference to likelihood. It's been a rough season, with much happening outside of the team's control. Those who were available to play last night didn't show any signs of giving up. So, I'll just say ... GO ZIPS!, hope we get some players back on Sunday, and take care of our part of the equation.

    Going to o.t at BG. Whatever happens in o.t., the mountaineer offense looks SO MUCH SMOOTHER AND PLAYING WITH CONFIDENCE AS OPPOSSED TO HOW THE ZIPS LOOKED LIKE ON SUNDAY

    I heard the only reason they hired Heath was because they couldn't sign someone older with a sub .500 record. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jay_John
  30. 1 point
    That was my point. He's had 3 high win seasons to even get to .500. Also, if I am an AD in a conference like the MAC, I am looking for a younger up and comer. Not a 56 year old. Maybe they got an alumni discount and he may be solid, it's just not the direction I would look to go.

    live stats showed BG led 25-8 in shots 9-0 in shots on goal 12-4 in corner kicks BG seemed to have no problems controlling the ball...playing the against the wind when the zips were against the win in first half....I think it was 11-2 in shots and 8-0 in corner kicks

    Very little continuity on offense, leading to the 1-0 loss in overtime. BG now in drivers seat to win the MAC. TO determine the MAC winner they are going by average goals per game??

    https://sondasports.com/blog/soccer-tracker-improve-your-teams-performance/ ...There are several types of soccer trackers. One of the first to be introduced were cameras with an optical sensor. They were responsible for following a player throughout the game to record his basic statistics. Not only did they mark his route and the “heat zone”, but they were also able to recognize tackles, shots at goal, passes, etc. ... ...Today, most GPS soccer tracking systems include a GPS tracker, Heart Rate Monitor, and an application gathering and combining the measured data. The information we gather using such systems can be divided into three important sections. The first includes biological data, consisting of internal factors such as the heart rate, oxygen and fatigue, as well as measurements of values such as lactic acid and others. These measurements can be performed for example, by tracking the High Metabolic Distance using GPS soccer trackers. ...

    Big get. Groce loves his guards, and this kid looks like the type of player that will thrive in Groce's system. LCJ posted this transfer to his IG. I wonder if they know each other? I'd still like a 6'7"-6'8" Stretch Forward transfer, but we are going to be an absolute unit next year with our guards and front court.

    I caught the game with Malone today on ZDN. Getting smoked by a D2 school is not the end of the world for basically a first year D1 program, but some of the butchered plays made me glad I didn't make the 22 minute drive to campus. Then figure in Malone doesn't have it's own ball park yet, and is 6-14 in conference against the likes of Trevecca Nazarene and Lake Erie College. We've got a long way to go...
