Dan Kadar, the Buchtelite's sports editor, posted some good info from Lindy's 2006 College Football Preview. To view it, click the comments section on my last post.
As for his argument that Central Michigan will be tough, I am not so sure. They should worry about losing quarterback Kent Smith. Running back Ontario Sneed won't be as effective if opposing teams can stack the box against a poor QB. The Chippewas also lost their top two receivers - Justin Harper and Damien Linson.
I still think they have enough talent to beat Akron in Mount Pleasant, Mich, on Sept. 16, especially considering what they did to the Zips at the Rubber Bowl last year.
As I mentioned, I'll be in Indianapolis for the next 10 weeks starting Sunday. I will continue to blog, but since I'm not in Akron, Kadar mentioned that he would be happy to step in a make a post or two. He knows more about college football than any member of the local media, yours truly included.
Walsh Jesuit has moved into the state final four after a strong appearance by future Zips pitcher Bobby Simone. He pitched 8.1 innings to help the Warriors advance.
GoZips.com posted an update on how several Zips are faring in the United Soccer League's Premier Development League. Players include Evan Bush, Sinisia Ubiparipovic (Man, it's been a while since I typed that name), Matt Tutich, Pablo Moreira and Jonathan McClain.
I am seriously excited for this season to get started. Almost as much as for the football season. Almost.
