Let's get acquainted

By mrasor Published: October 14, 2005

Welcome to Mike Rasor's blog. You may know Rasor's exploits from his column in the Buchtelite, the newspaper at the University of Akron. In "The Rasor's Edge," Mike can be ruthless or praising, hopelessly negative or unabashedly optimistic. Sometimes he simply points out trends in sports.

Expect the same with "Rasor on the Zips." Rasor may be a UA employee, but believe him when he says he'll take any shot at the Zips that is necessary.

Here are some examples of his commentary to whet your appetite.

Ruthless toward women's basketball and Jeff McInnis

Praising toward men's basketball

Hopelessly pessimistic (and clairvoyant) toward Paul Silas

Unabashedly optimistic toward UA/Cleveland sports
