Some of the Zips traveling party is just now arriving from Lubbock, Texas.
After the main flight got cancelled. The 25 people in their party needed to find a new way home.
Groups got rerouted to New York City, Charlotte and Indianapolis. It's a good thing Akron has a light schedule for the next two weeks. This kind of thing can hurt a team's practice schedule.
- Assistant coach Jeff Boals told me about these escapades. He was disappointed in the loss to Arkansas-Little Rock, mainly because the Zips missed so many dunks (three) and free throws (10).
- The university doesn't seem concerned with changing the time of the Tiffin game. It's a 2 p.m. on Sunday -- which is an hour after the Browns-Steelers game starts. D'oh!
- My buddy Tom Gaffney wrote a good feature about Romeo Travis.
