Zips get creamed again

By mrasor Published: September 12, 2011

Football

Akron did not stand a chance against Temple's roster of bigger, faster, more athletic and better prepared players.

The final score of 41-3 means that the Zips have lost their first two games by a count of 83-3. If it makes you feel any better, Temple has top-25 potential. And, I guess, Akron was competitive for 12 minutes.

After two weeks of forgettable football, Akron is 104th in the nation in passing yards, 116th in rushing yards, 118th in points scored, and 112th in points allowed.

The Zips will be outmatched against next week at Cincinnati. The Bearcats lost 45-23 at Tennessee yesterday, but they put up 72 points on Austin Peay the prior week.

There's not much to analyze with the Temple loss. But I'll say something: Akron fans are looking for improvement. They're looking for young players, particularly Rob Ianello recruits, to show flashes -- any indication that 2012 and 2013 could be better. Contending for the MAC was never a realistic goal, but please just give us something.
