    Why is everyone so negative? Sure, they will lose, but it’s not like Akron is the only MAC team to load up with tough out of conference games. No doubt that big paydays can help a program struggling for cash. The biggest negative in my mind is that it seriously hurts their chance to gain bowl eligibility. 

    In my opinion this is exactly what’s wrong with the program and the MAC. Being happy about another guaranteed thrashing for a payday is mind boggling to me. This happens yearly. We will guaranteed start off 0-1 and frankly will lose to Rutgers and South Carolina. That is 3 loses right there, but as fans we should accept it all because it will be a pay day for the university? Goodness.


    Akron should drop down to FCS. Yea board, dislike this post, quote this and trash me. I don’t care. At least at FCS we may be able to win and host a playoffs game. Being a guaranteed win for these big programs is bullshit. Expecting fans to accept it because it’s a payday for the university not only is bullshit as well, but also a clear sign your program does not deserve to be FBS. 

    I’m fed up with being a Zips fan and accepting this crap. But this board doesn’t like to go against the grain, so I’m sure I’ll be more lectured how im wrong on this and how I need to be happy. Someone on here said this is a positive to see the program go against  big competition. Just stop. That’s a clear sign you cheer for a loser program. Accepting this due to the payday…goodness.

    If the MAC hasn't eliminated divisions, they should and adopt an ACC style model. Below is Wake Forest's future schedule.


    My point is this. It's possible to maintain in state rivalries while providing athletes students alumni fans and general communities a great experience. I just wish the MAC and ACC would go to 9 conference games. 




    Lol are you like a Wake Forest spokesperson or so? Almost every post of yours they are mentioned 😂

    We need to beat Kent and get some positive momentum going into 2024. This isn’t the time to give PT to guys just because they’re freshmen. 

    If Wasel and Jennings haven’t received any PT this season, it isn’t because someone wants to preserve their eligibility. It’s because they are a lesser option than even Bullock.

    But what does them being the "lesser option" matter at this point? This team is 1-6. Let me repeat, 1 win. Bullock is not the savior, he has more than proven that already. He can barely throw an accurate 5 yard pass. It's pretty clear others on here would actually care to watch if one of the young men got a chance in this waste of a season. What, does the "lesser options" bring fear that our "genius" head coach may have also recruited bad players on top of the other things he hasnt accomplished so far? JM is rather protected on this board by some, so maybe that's it, fear of further exposure.


    Beating Kent does nothing at this point. For me that's just another way for an Akron fan to try to make lemonade out of a lemons season. This season is a wash and beating a fellow 1-6 team in front of 10 fans doesnt do anything for momentum because there are still plenty of games left for horrible loses this team seems to like to do this 2023 season.

    I think you probably need to become interested in the hope that Bullock has grown over the past couple weeks and shows some promise that he could be the leader in next year’s QB derby. 

    Jennings showed almost nothing in the spring. Wasel was overwhelmed. I’d be 240 volt shocked if either saw a meaningful minute on the field next Wednesday. Or 241…whatever it takes. 



    No. Pass on Bullock. Time to see Jennings or Wasel. JM himself visited each of them at their houses multiple times to recruit them. I'd like to see what they have since he went after them. Bullock has looked bad thus far and wasn't exactly a guy Akron was desperately trying to get. His old college was happy to see him leave in the portal. This season is over, why not see what one of the high school recruits have to offer? Literally the Zips have nothing to lose seeing what one of the young guys has to offer. 


    But sure, Bullock, we can start him. Yawn.

  5. Guthrie should be feeling some personal pressure I assume. Not job security pressure, but for him to have a good shot at a P5 job, I think he needs to be able to show he changed the football program for the better. So far the product still sucks under him, though I guess some will be impressed that he got JM to come to Akron, even though he hasnt done anything as coach. Also, attendance is still trash, which maybe theres nothing he can do about that, frankly. But I do believe football is his key to a P5 school if that's what he wants. He needs to show he changed the program.

    If we go with one of our freshmen QB's the Wagon Wheel Game is a tough week for a freshman to get his first start.


    still think we're only an average QB away from being .500.  But that doesn't take the blame off the staff's shoulders, as it's their responsibility to make sure we've got that average QB on the roster.

    With all due respect, not really THAT tough of a game for a freshman to start. Attendance will be embarrassing for a rivalry game no one outside of Kent or Akron fans care about. If this was OSU-Mich, sure. But Akron-Kent? I dont think a freshman will be too rattled with 20 people in the stands. Now is the time to see what one of these kids has in them.

    Good Lord, just a week ago nearly everyone was b!+ch!ng about how bad Irons was and now we're clamoring for him as the guy they could be winning games with.  Welcome to Zips football.


    Again, put Jennings or Wasel in. The "saviour" JoeMo should realize by now this season is lost. Since he took multiple visits to Columbus to recruit Jennings and to Oklahoma for Wasel, maybe he should see what he actually has in them instead of trusting Mr. Interception (Undercuffler) and Bullock. Heck, as a fan one of them starting would make me want to tune in to see what they have. 

  8. What a joke. Moving forward, put either Jennings or Wasel in at QB to see what they have for our future. This season is lost anyways. This is ridiculous. Undercuffler isnt taking us anywhere and it's no surprise to see why VT let Bullock go easily. 


    What a mess of an offense. This team should be 0-7.


    Sorry, this team sucks.

    Don't look now, but Colorado is winning games they should win and is 4-2. Maybe there is something to be said for jettisoning a teams worth of players to change a culture of losing. 


    To be fair, Deion Sanders got the # 1 recruit to go to Jackson State. Colorado isnt getting good players randomly because people realized it's beautiful in that state. Kids may not even realize Colorado is a state (lol) but they do know they want to play for Coach Sanders. That makes a turnaround much easier and quicker.
