Week 5: BUGS

Recommended Posts

Anyone else more nervous than excited about today’s game?  If we lose to BUGS, oof.  Especially with Buffalo on deck. Next week is likely to be ugly.  I don’t want Arth & Co. to have to motivate, encourage & hold together a 2x winless team this offseason.

 

If we win I think I’m just going to feel a sense of relief.

Good morning. I hope We see a ton of Dollard today. I hope the operation is clean and the Zips win time of possession. I think keys to the game today are controlling the game on the ground, turnovers and penalties at a minimum, keep the ball so the D stays off the field. Typical stuff that usually equals a win. 
 

Victory number one is on the way. I feel it.

Just looked at BG's forum.  There's an Akron game thread but it's filled primarily with discussions about the ESPN contract and the departure of Bowden.

I did the same. Their discussion isn’t too different than ours!

 

Feed Dollard and I like our chances. BG has the worst run D in the nation.

All kinds of talk about the Buckeyes being down 20 players today. We are down 20 assuming everyone is available every week..

 

there should really be exceptions to the annual limit of 25, especially in today’s transfer happy environment.

Akron absolutely needs to win today. We cannot go winless again in another season. Recruiting this year seems awfully bad. It’s already the worst in D1 football right now. Looking at some of the guys we have offered Akron is their only D1 offer. Another winless season will make the offseason that much harder. Imagine convincing Highschool kids to come here and we have the longest winless streak in D1 football by a lot. Let’s be honest who wouldn’t consider taking a D1 AA scholarship over Akron right now. There are plenty of AA schools that have produced more NFL talent than Akron has over the years. Also you’d enjoy winning some games. I’m also sick of hearing how much experience our young guys are gaining this year without losing a year of eligibility. Well guess what, every other team is doing the same damn thing and they’re already better than us. Also not to mention the transfers we will potentially lose this off-season. Sorry to sound bitter it’s just the truth. This is a must win for some sort of momentum with this program going into next year and it still isn’t enough.

This offense looks like crap outside of a few Dollard runs. Luckily BG sucks as well....

 

I'd consider benching Gibson already..he has no control over the offense...consistently snapping with 1 second left on play clock.

Nice run coming out of 2 timeouts on 3rd down in the red zone.

It was 3rd and 20. I'd take the points rather than a turnover...

Its looks like Cochran and Amankwaa are starting instead of Riley and Obgonna today..hard to confirm though with our horrible camera angle.

BG is blitzing the corner/LB off the edge on the slow developing hand off every single time. Let's adjust!
