The Zips were tied with Kentucky until the 7:49 mark in the second quarter. Then the Wildcats went for 44 straight points.
Akron lost, 47-10.
Maybe it's time to admit this team has no chance to compete in the Mid-American Conference. Maybe the last three weeks showed the squad belongs in ESPN.com's "Bottom 10." It's hard to say.
I'll say this, though: Unlike previous games, nobody played well tonight. Nobody. Not the running backs, not the linebackers, nobody.
This is a game where Rob Ianello must make the following distinction: What parts of tonight's game would have caused a loss against an average MAC school, and which ones were simply because the Zips were physically mismatched?
Realistically, Akron needs to focus on the MAC season, where a relatively brief three-game winning streak can give you leverage over the rest of the division.
