Men's basketball Akron's road quest begins tonight in Kalamazoo.
Tom Gaffneysays Akron knows it has been lethargic on the road and is prepared to improve.
Akron is a one-point
can tie the all-time series against Western Michigan at 16 games apiece.
A former Zips assistant coach is in the middle of college basketball's biggest story.
Pat Knight, an assistant under
ascended to head coach at Texas Tech after his father
Bobby Knight resigned. I don't remember much about him. If anyone does, feel free to comment.
The Kalamazoo Gazette
David Drew's shooting slump since coach
Steve Hawkins moved him to the bench.
The Gazette also recently
profiled Shawntes Gary, who recently underwent an interesting medical procedure to fix a childhood accident.
Prediction -- The teams have played in only one common arena: at KSU's M.A.C. Center. Both teams came close to winning, but the Flashes pulled away late. The question is, has Akron returned to the team that crushed Miami and nearly won at Dayton? Last week's games indicate so. Even if the Zips are at their best, beating WMU at Kalamazoo will be difficult. It will take a huge offensive game from Akron's guards. Obviously, the Zips can win. Will they? Don't bet on it.

Unlike when I was in undergrad land (where I could skip classes at will), I'm going to be pretty busy today.
I will try to keep you updated, regardless.
One player has already decommitted. Juco wide receiver
Ryan Gardneris headed for Colorado State. I will be holding my breath until I see that his friend and fellow stud juco receiver
Deryn Bowser signs.
