Football The Buchtelite's Adam Ferrise argued why Akron will win only four games this season. I concur in his reasoning, but think there are at least six games on the schedule that the Zips should win, even under the most dire circumstances.
There are several other Buchtelite stories worth reading as well...
The Zips' new scheme will rely, at times, on a hurry-up offense to keep defenses on their heels,
Vincent Dorseywrites. (Dorsey is an outstanding reporter and writer, by the way.)
Mack Rhoadesdiscusses the exposure the program will receive this season.
J.D. Brookharttalks about the new leadership council on the team, which allows the coaching staff insight in the behind-the-scenes happenings.
The men's soccer team
worked hard this offseason to satisfy the hunger from missing the 2006 NCAA Tournament, coach
Caleb Porter said.
The women's cross country team
wants to repeat as Triple Crown MAC champions. This season is the first leg of that goal.
For those of you not aware, I no longer serve as the Buchtelite's editor in chief. I actually have no formal connection at all. But there are a lot of good writers like Dorsey and Ferrise, whose goal it is to continue the paper's award-winning status.
