  1. LC board close to naming presidential finalist By Matt Hollis matt.hollis@baytownsun.com (9-18-2019) After spending months going over nearly 90 applications from contenders seeking to be Lee College’s next president, and whittling it down to four, the board is close to naming a finalist. Last week, four finalists visited the campus to meet and answer questions from Lee College faculty, administrators, students and the public. The four candidates are Dr. Stephen W. Dunnivant, Dean of Business, Industry and Technology at Tallahassee Community College; Dr. Johnny Moore, president of Pierpont Community and Technical College in Fairmont, WV; Dr. Scott Scarborough. Professor of Practice – School of Accountancy at the University of Akron and previous University of Akron president; and Dr. Lynda Villanueva, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs and Student Affairs at Brazosport College.
  2. Agreed. The point is that Akron needs to figure out how to get people in the door to support the program and make it so fans want to return.
  3. https://www.cleveland.com/sports/2019/01/mac-basketball-at-a-high-attendance-is-low.html I am always selling the program as the best entertainment in town. A friend of mine took his family of four. They bought the Family Pack tickets for a total of $55 to sit in the bleachers, paid $10 to park, bought food for about $25 and a baseball cap for $30 for a total of $120. He and his wife are both graduates of Akron and said that they doubt that will return to a game. These are big league prices and we wonder why the arena is less than half full. The athletic department should be giving tickets away to every youth basketball program in the area and then hand them a buy one get one coupon for a return game. Try to fill the place, go back to free parking and have good concessions at a reasonable price. I bet they would be shocked on how much food/drink and merchandise they would sell. The JAR is great when it is full and our guys deserve more fan support.
  4. Danny Clark QB transferring from Kentucky Ethan Wright RB/DB Manchester (2020) Ben Christman, OL Revere (2021) Luke Bauer LB/DE Hoban (2021)
  5. According to Football Scoop... Akron: Mississippi State assistant head coach / run game coordinator / running backs coach Charles Huff has interviewed for the Akron head coaching job, Bruce Feldman tweets. Feldman also shares that Texas running associate head coach / running backs coach / running backs coach Stan Drayton is also “getting consideration” for the job.
  6. The U of A could provide Vince Kehres with about 300,000 additional reasons to lead the Zips.
  7. Very sad news. http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/ohio/obituary.aspx?n=bryan-w-roth&pid=190195846&fhid=15577
  8. According to VerbalCommits.com Mikal Dawson is in the 2019 recruiting class. He will play at Huntington Prep in 2018-19.
  9. Torrey Patton is transferring to West Virginia State according to Verbal Commits.
  10. Great decision to offer Chris Livingston an Akron Buchtel player. He is special. http://www.verbalcommits.com/players/chris-livingston
  11. My understanding is Kest will officially retire as of June 30 and due to budget reasons the interview process cannot begin until around mid June. This information could be wrong, but wanted to share what I heard.
  12. I just think the UA Board will not allow Williams to move on anything until Jodi Kest is off the books. There seems to be mutual interest.
  13. Terry Weigand is a great coach, great recruiter and loves the University of Akron. I think he is a wonderful candidate. This program deserves a talented coach like Terry Weigand. UA can't let this opportunity slip away. I heard about two or three weeks ago that Larry Williams will not begin interviewing until sometime after June 10.
  14. This could be nice... Check out @Jumpmane22’s Tweet: https://twitter.com/Jumpmane22/status/993646666442997760?s=09
  15. When will there be Joe Jakubick Bobblehead Night?
