While perusing ZipsNation.org, I found some interesting internet stories. First, the Cincinnati Enquirer wrote about Bubba Walther's transfer to Ohio, a development first mentioned on this blog. Walther said all the right things. However, I'd expect him to get a cold reception on Feb. 25 if he's in street clothes at Rhodes Arena. Or better yet, next season when he's allowed to suit up for the Bobcats.
Yahoo! Sports gave the Zips some serious props when Clark Kellogg chose his Cinderella candidates. Romeo Travis was displayed at the top of their college basketball home page. I'm shocked a former Buckeye knows there's another university in Ohio. In fact, Kellogg also mentioned Ohio, Xavier and Miami as candidates.
The Zips are playing the MAC West's worst teams this week in Eastern Michigan and Central Michigan. Their division rivals are not so lucky, especially Ohio and Kent State...
The Ohio/NIU and KSU/WMU games are tonight.
A FoxSports.com writer predicted the field of 65. He said Akron would be one of the last five out of the tourney, and Miami will win the MAC. Seems unlikely to me, but I've seen stranger predictions.
