Previously, I listed the best moments of last year. Perhaps equally important are the worst moments.
Here they are...
1) Men's soccer -- NCAA
strips Zips of home-field advantage in Sweet Sixteen.
2) Men's basketball -- Kent State
beats Akron in MAC Championship.
3) Football -- Zips fumble in double-overtime against Buffalo,
relinquishing their hold on the division lead.
4) Men's basketball -- UMass
uses a 17-2 run late in the game to eliminate Zips from NIT.
5) Football -- Akron
loses to Temple because of special teams and quarterback problems, missing an opportunity to be bowl-eligible.
6) Men's soccer -- Akron's season
ends on Northwestern's icy field in the Sweet Sixteen.
7) Men's basketball -- KSU's
drains a last-second 3 to extinguish Akron's comeback attempt at Rhodes Arena.
8 ) Men's basketball -- Northern Illinois
snaps Akron's 22-game home winning streak at Rhodes Arena.
9) Football -- NCAA
