You can get your Fear the Roo gear online, or at least you will be able to soon. Check this site for phone numbers to call if the Web shopping isn't stocked with Fear gear. This isn't a lame advertisement for the athletic department. I'm posting this because several fans have asked me how to get the cool shirts we were all wearing at the MAC Championship.
Akron has never beaten a top-25 team in basketball. The Zips will get a chance tomorrow afternoon at No. 5 Louisville. The Zips last played a top-25 team a couple years ago when they lost by 11 at then-No. 7 North Carolina. A win could propel Akron to the top 25 themselves. But don't hold your breath. Louisville went to the Final Four last year. Rick Pitino is one of the country's premier coaches. I'll be happy with a spread similar to the 2003 loss to UNC.
