Akron opened practice yesterday. According to Tom Gaffney's report, the weather was perfect but offensive execution was anything but.
The Zips are, however, transferring to a pro-style offense, which requires more snaps from under center. That caused some fumbles. Patrick Nicely, who took a bulk of the snaps, also threw some interceptions.
