Spring football update

By mrasor Published: April 5, 2006

Football published another of its excellent updates today.

Some highlights...

  • Dennis Kennedy continues to dominate. It seems like he is wrapping up the starting running back job over Alex Allen.

  • Carlton Jackson took most of the snaps at quarterback, which seems to indicate he is winning or has won the backup job over Chris Jacquemain.

  • Jermaine Lindsey and Johnny Long both have been playing well at wide receiver. The No. 2 receiver job is open.

Here are some other tidbits I found while doing my daily Google news search on Zips stuff.

  • Victor Green, perhaps the best safety in Jets history, signed a one-day contract to retire with New York. He played at Akron in the early '90s and made the Jets as a rookie free agent.

  • Remember Desmond Brentley? He was a top-50 quarterback recruit this year, according to's skewed rankings. He is going to Grambling after Temple and Akron pulled their scholarship offers.

Men's basketball

Ohio coach Tim O'Shea is heading to Seton Hall, according to the New York Daily News.

I poster on found this: ESPN's Andy Katz says the Zips might break the top 25 sometime next season.

Also, we are working to confirm a rumor on ZipsNation that Zips assistant Shaka Smart is going to Clemson to be an assistant there.
