Football stadium almost ensured

By mrasor Published: September 20, 2006


As I mentioned yesterday, the university almost ensured the construction of a new stadium by paying a design firm $2 million to figure out a plan.

For my story in today's Buchtelite, I talked to coach J.D. Brookhart and Mack Rhoades about how this development might affect the football program and the athletic department.

  • Below is the Buchtelite's latest Podcast, in which we discuss the Zips loss to Indiana, the upcoming Akron-North Texas football game and the biggest question for tailgating: whiskey or beer? Download podcast_5.mp3

  • The Buchtelite's talented football writer Adam Ferrise previewed Saturday's game.

  • Those crazy Outsiders debated whether it is better to tailgate with whiskey or beer. If you listen to our Podcast, you'll find where I stand on the issue.

Men's soccer

Akron lost 2-0 against Indiana. I'm sure the ABJ's Tom Reed will write an amazing story as always, but you should also read the Buchtelite's Michael Beaven, who talks about the implications of such a loss.

Women's soccer

Call this patronage, but I hired one of my good friends as a sportswriter.

Josh Volchko, in his first Buchtelite story, tells the story of sophomore (and leading scorer) Jessica Fix.
