With the Zips in Portland

By Tom Gaffney Published: March 17, 2009

This is Tom Gaffney. I will be blogging a bit here with the team as Mike Rasor attends to law-school duties.
The Zips traveling party includes the team,  members of the athletic department, boosters, media, cheerleaders and band members. The total on the plane is 106.
Buses left the JAR at 6 and arrived at Akron-Canon Airport's McKinley Air at 620. The charter plane is a 737 run by Southwest Airlines.  The plane left  at 723 and the ride was smooth all the way. It landed to rain in Portland at 931. Busses then took the party to the team hotel, which is six blocks from the Rose Garden.
I was able to sit and talk with Keith Dambrot for a bit. He said the last few   days have been a blur and that the game schedules in the MAC and NCAA is like "cramming for exams."
He said the key to the Gonzaga game will be controlling the tempo. He said a score in the 80 s will spell doom for his team
More in a few minutes,  i have a radio interview with a Seattle station.
