Team shatters several records

By mrasor Published: January 13, 2007


That concept of midseason form is irrelevant to Dennis Mitchell and his Zips.

Several of his athletes set personal, school and field house records in Friday's Akron Quad, which the Zips men and women both won.

I really suggest you click the link above. You probably won't believe how dominant Akron was over Pittsburgh, Ohio and Seton Hall.

  • The athletic department used the event to announce a new three-year deal for Mitchell. In his 10 years at Akron, the coach has enjoyed great success. When Mack Rhoades was hired, I said his first objective should be to lock up the university's best coaches: J.D. Brookhart, Keith Dambrot and Mitchell. Mission accomplished.

Bowling Green is a physical team, Keith Dambrot said in Tom Gaffney's ABJ preview.

Like I wrote yesterday, the team will focus on stopping senior guard Martin Samarco.


I caught part of the Inta Juice North-South game to which Luke Getsy was invited.

The former Zips quarterback threw a touchdown in the first half and ran for one with 30 seconds to go. Dan Kadar, who writes for a college football scouting Web site, said Getsy "looked decent, can't spot a pass, has no deep ball. The usual."
