UA to give out LeBron wall clings

To cap a career for Romeo Travis and Dru Joyce that has been about stepping out of LeBron James' shadow, the university will give away wall clings with The King's likeness on Saturday night.


Ironic? Disrespectful? Good marketing?


I'm not sure. I don't know Travis and Joyce well enough to assess the situation.


Let's just hope UA asked these guys about having this giveaway on Senior Night.


The first 3,000 fans in the door get a poster. No matter where you stand on the issue, you must admit the promotion will help ticket sales. I think a poster with Travis and Joyce would accomplish the same goal.


  • Akron fans (me included) often complain about home attendance. The community is apathetic. The students are somehow worse. The Record Pub's Dave Carducci says Kent State has it worse than Akron.

  • GoZips.com's preview points out Akron has not lost back-to-back games this season. It would take an indoor typhoon for that to happen Saturday on Senior Night.

  • The BG News previews the game by talking about the Falcons inability to rebound in Wednesday's 25-point loss against Ohio.
