Zips drop a spot in the Mid-Major Poll

By mrasor Published: February 27, 2006

Men's basketball

Akron fell to 15th, while Kent State jumped to seventh in the Mid-Major Top 25. Miami, the only other MAC team to get votes, was 27th.


The Zips won the Western Intercollegiate Rifle Championship for the second-straight year. Five of the 10 all-conference first-team shooters were Zips. They are Megan Reinking, Julie DeBrita, Melissa Lussier (x2) and Michael Tokarz. The season will conclude Saturday in Connecticut for the Mid-Atlantic Rifle Conference championships.


Today, the Buchtelite will celebrate one of the best mid-card wrestlers of all time. His name is Terry Taylor. You may know him as the Red Rooster, Terrible Terry Taylor, Terrific Terry Taylor, The Taylor Made Man or Terrance Taylor.

Regardless, Taylor is a wrestling icon of mediocrity.

If you have any memories of Taylor, please post them below. This so-so ring veteran will not be forgotten.

As promised, here (Download Terry_Taylor.pdf) is the flier from Terry Taylor Day in PDF format. He has a special message for Zips fans.
