Rumor: Frye may be cut

By mrasor Published: September 10, 2007

Football
As if Zips fans needed another quarterback issue, rumors have the Browns ready to cut either Charlie Frye or Derek Anderson.
As soon as I saw Brady Quinn's field vision in the first preseason game, I knew Frye's time as "the man" in Cleveland was over. It might actually be best for Frye to get a fresh start, although Week Two of the regular season is a bad time to be looking for a new team.

    Some news...
    Domenik Hixon was involved in a collision that likely will leave a Buffalo Bills player paralyzed. Kevin Everett ducked his head before tackling the former Zips star on a return. Knowing Domenik, he must feel awful.
    Notable comments during J.D. Brookhart's press conference: The receivers were pressing, and often ran their routes incorrectly. He admitted the offense was probably too conservative, and maybe didn't run enough. Regarding Indiana: They have great kick/punt returners, a dual-threat quarterback and an outstanding receiver in James Hardy.
    Zips recruit Marvase Byrd is having a great start to the season. Rivals.com lists him as a cornerback at the next level. My guess is that Akron offered to let him play running back, which is why he turned down four BCS offers.
    Vote for Zippy for the Capital One mascot competition!!!!! This week, (s)he's facing off against Cavman from Virginia.

Men's basketball
In basketball lingo, Zeke Marshall is a "footer."
Well, he's almost seven feet tall. Seeing how the 6-foot-11.5 Pittsburgh native has grown 2.5 inches since last season, Akron, Pitt, Virginia and Virginia Tech have offered Marshall a scholarship.
Neither recruiting site says much about Marshall, probably because he's a rising (literally) prospect.
    Akron also has offered another point guard. Another!?!? Yep.
    Aaron Austin, point guard, Woodside, Va. Offers: Akron, The Citadel, VMI and Radford Height: 6-4 Weight: 176 Notes: Rivals says his rebounding skills are developing, while he has a good handle and solid strength.
