As I posted last night, the women won the All-Ohio Track Championships. The men took second to Ohio State.
Before the event, Ohio State's coach Russ Rogers said this:
"We haven't put a lot of interest in trying to win the meet in the past because we have a lot of schools in Ohio," coach Russ Rogers said. "So we try and give them the chance to perform, but this year we're going all out. We're going to win the meet."
By saying that, Rogers was taking a shot at Akron's win of the All-Ohio meet last year, for both men and women. Those cocky Buckeyes weren't done.
Distance runner Brian Olinger said this:
"We look at ourselves as the premier track program in Ohio, so we definitely want to go out and win and put up as many points as possible," Olinger said.
If you combine men's and women's scores from the All-Ohio meet, you get this result: Akron, 360.5; Ohio State, 328.5.
This is just more of the same from Ohio State. To the Buckeyes, and their fans, no other university in Ohio matters.
GoZips.com posted another update on spring practice. Here are some highlights...
The Blue/Gold Game is Saturday at 11 a.m. in the Field House. I would recommend getting there early because last year's game was pretty full.
The Zips are now tied for the MAC East lead after beating Toledo on Saturday and Sunday.
Akron (15-15, 6-2 MAC) will open its new stadium on Wednesday against Robert Morris at 3 p.m.
Look for my column to talk about the new stadium and what it might mean for an improving team.
