Most of us would agree the Zips' offensive line had some bad games this season.
J.D. Brookhart wasted little time in filling his commit list with solid blockers, including two more who committed this week.
Here is a listing of the Zips' offensive line commitments so far...
That's a great O-line class, and we still have two months until signing day.
It's early, but the Zips are running away as the MAC's best recruiter again. All the other teams are just doing so-so. Kent State is having an awful recruiting season. The Flashes' nine recruits average 0.89 stars, compared to Akron's 2.25.
Here are some updates from the Zips' other three-star potential recruits...
Pat Bangtson signed two left-handed pitchers and a catcher.
Bangtson said the team focused on the team's needs behind the plate and against right-handed hitters.
Both Akron's Blue and Gold teams beat Rose Hulman Institute of Technology this weekend in a home match.
The undefeated team's next challenge will come Jan. 13 at Penn State.
Yup. This is the first time I've written about cheerleading.
Forgive me, but I had no idea this even counted as a team.
Well, they submitted a video that earned them a No. 8 ranking nationally -- good enough to earn an invitation to the national competition in early April.
Congrats go out to everyone's favorite cheerleader, Leo Spagnola, and all his death-defying teammates.
I plan to break down Illinois-Chicago sometime tomorrow.
Until then, whet your whistle with a heated discussion about the AK-Rowdies on ZipsNation.org.
Not that anyone asked, but here's my opinion... The Rowdies did something fairly miraculous on Akron's apathetic commuter campus. But they need to be careful not to be too exclusive. The more fans, the better.
I realize they had a mandatory meeting, but the University of Akron cannot afford to turn down fan support at this point. If there is an empty seat in the Rowdies and someone wants to sit there, just let them. It's nice to have a dress code to make it look organized -- much like OU's O-Zone. But sending people away seems like a power trip.
I think it's a great idea to have a spill-over section in the case of the big conference games.
By the way, someone needs to toss the band out of the student section. Holy crap that's dumb.
