Grant gets props

By mrasor Published: December 19, 2005

Football


The Sporting News named Akron linebacker Kevin Grant as a freshman All-American honorable mention. That is pretty high praise. Somehow, he snuck under the radar while Jay Rohr and Kiki Gonzalez received a lot of the defense's attention.


Men's basketball


As expected, the Zips trounced Mount St. Mary's, 74-61. Romeo "The Rock" Travis lead Akron with 17 and seven. Mississippi State is next on Tuesday afternoon. I've said it probably a dozen times. If Akron can win against large-conference teams, they will have a better shot at the postseason.


Miscellaneous


UA president Luis Proenza will announce Mack Rhoades as Akron's new athletic director tomorrow afternoon. Thanks to you stellar readers, my blog got the scoop before any other media source.
