It might sound like sour grapes, but the Zips outplayed Buffalo last night.
They should have won if not for 1) Allowing Buffalo to go 5-for-5 on fourth down (What is this, Madden '08?) 2) Losing the turnover battle by two. 3) Not converting on three field goals -- two because penalties took Akron out of Igor Iveljic's range. 4) Offensive playcalling that made me pull my hair out all night. 5) More dropped passes than I can ever remember.
Regardless, Akron was the home team. It had a large crowd for motivation, yet still did not finish the game. There is no excuse for winning in such a charged atmosphere.
I'm sure Zips fans like me are completely disappointed. Football is funny in that way -- every fanbase expects to win every week. In reality, why should Akron win on any given week instead of another team and their fans? Is it the coaching? The players? Football is set up to destroy its fans' morale. Every week, the excitement of fans for both teams builds. Half of those people have to leave the stadium or turn off the TV/radio with a sour taste.
