Here is the Buchtelite's second Podcast. We break down what we liked and didn't like from the Akron-NC State game.
Here are some other links I came across throughout the day...
- Running back Dennis Kennedy is the MAC East Offensive Player of the Week.
- USA Today gives Akron some respect.
- FoxSports.com wonders how bigger schools missed out on David Harvey. I'm pretty sure they didn't. If I'm not mistaken, Harvey committed to Penn State, but was a non-qualifier academically. He sat out last year to improve that. We discuss Harvey in-depth in the Podcast.
- Scout.com has dropped Akron from the list of candidates to land four-star receiver Toney Clemons. My guess is that he's headed for Michigan or Ohio State.
I should have posted this sooner, but Akron remained undefeated in shutting out Marshall, 1-0.
Christine Vacha's goal in the 51st minute was all the Zips needed with Krystin Wilson in goal.
Look for a feature on the team in today's Buchtelite. I'll post it later today.
Despite having Blake Sattler back from injury, the Zips took ninth of 12 teams at the Rich Harvest Farms Intercollegiate.
Predictably, Sattler led the team. He was 6 over.
It's a young team, and you'll have to excuse the Zips for hiccups like their performance at the Hilton Las Cruces Classic.
Going 0-3, Akron dropped matches to Idaho State, Wyoming and New Mexico State.
I'm excited for MAC play to begin in 10 days when Kent State visits Rhodes Arena on Sept. 21.
There was a bright point on the weekend: Jennifer Stewart made the all-tournament team.
It's hard to think about basketball at this time of the year, but this could become a major development: A point guard who has strengths in ball handling, passing and defense is considering a commitment with Akron.
Aaron Johnson is a three-star player from Chicago, Scout.com reports. Other teams of interest include Fairfield, Alabama-Birmingham and Wisconsin-Green Bay. Each, including Akron, have offered Johnson a scholarship.
Rivals.com does not rank Johnson, but adds several other teams that are candidates while leaving out the Zips.
Landing Johnson would make this an amazing recruiting class for Keith Dambrot, who already received a commitment from Steve Swiech, a top-20 center in the nation.
