  • UAH hockey is now back after a successful fundraising drive. But like half the team has already announced transfers when the team was officially cut. Seems to me that if the team can be saved by fundraising, they should say “raise X dollars by Y dat…
  • On paper, I like: Persson - last year was his first season in NA and he adapted well. I would imagine the staff sees him as a prospect with a high ceiling as he continues to adjust Rydqvist - again, transitioning from the space of international ice …
  • Is Dapore committed to Miami? Currently, no. Miami is going after two of the top kickers in the US. The other kicker is currently at Covington Catholic (AJ Meyer, Kam Butler, Jack Coldiron). I would imagine it's going to be hard for anyone currentl…
  • App St cut 3 sports to go from 20 to 17 programs. ECU cut 4 programs. Schools are making decisions on being competitive vs being broad based. Only the incredibly well endowed or cash flush will survive being broad based - not sure how G5 schools sup…

  • I made a Bed Wetter at CJs. Fun times tending bar there. Was it a drug front then too?
  • 2-26-6 last year. 8-28-2 the previous year. I saw them in action vs. BG. They are far better than that record. They were giving BG all they could handle on a Saturday night.  And it's dangerous to judge cutting a program based on record. Exam…

  • Available data analyzed by the WHO suggests that COVID-19 has a mortality rate that is more than triple that for seasonal influenza.  Early analysis for New York suggests that the mortality rate for COVID-19 may be five times higher than for influen…
  • New info released in Ohio that should be relevant regarding decision to open schools and college in the Fall. Over 70% of confirmed deaths in Ohio have come from nursing homes. Numbers reported yesterday were 1,247 out of 1,691 confirmed deaths. Tha…
  • Have to wonder if that floor will be changed in the near future. That was the basis of the waiver that was already denied. I would imagine CMU is applying for the individual waiver, but that will only keep them FBS for so long unless something cha…

  • I am hoping that MLB and NBA use piped in crowd noise when they start playing. Watching without pumped in sound is great. You can hear the staff and players communicate. Is a much more close up experience in my opinion.

  • Bad news: Wesley decommits Good news: another commit coming tonight or tomorrow (not a QB)
  • Can we stop telling people what they should tweet or shouldn't tweet (or post/not post) based on how it may help or hurt recruiting?  We are fans, not employees of the university. So long as no one is being malicious, expressing opinions is at the v…
  • Doesn't this go hand in glove with the new rule allowing student athletes to gain financially from their image. I.E. here at Miami University this is what is available to enhance your image, vis-a-vis your pocket book. It does. That was part of the …
  • Akron has been in trouble for a while! http://zipsnation.org/forums/uploads/monthly_2020_05/690993751_spiffychart.thumb.png.f585d4e6cede9fc53d078a33c96628b7.png I've seen predictions Kent will absorb Akron and turn it into a satellite campus. I've a…

  • Even before the pandemic, Miami faced a difficult financial reality that impacted acceptance numbers.  Constantly decreasing state revenue and a paltry endowment (relative to comparable schools) has forced Miami to find ways to boost revenue.  One w…
  • How much is Miami paying this guy for marketing advice not available to the general student body? And what is that amount equivalent to in terms of laid-off staff or non-renewed adjuncts? Do you feel this is potentially a poor use of resources? Ye…

  • Any updates on the size of the 2021 class esp any additions of DL? Any further transfer news? It would appear given the quality of our recruits their potential rankings may go up if we have a 2021 HS football season. I would imagine a class of 20-22…
  • What the **** makes someone think to do this?  Not bad, but why? I've lost count of days in quarantine and it's a popular video trend. He's a well known person on Twitter around Cleveland sports, so probably killing time while there's a limited amou…
  • When are we going to start finding recruits that actually want to be here?  We've lost less kids to transfer than almost every other school in the conference and we've actually been fairly lucky compared to the national average.
  • Isn’t D1 NCAA soccer kind of a waste? Best players go to Europe/Development academies by the time they are 18 I’ll rephrase: men’s collegiate soccer is a waste. Most D1 schools are just glorified D3/club teams. Safe to say that 10% of the top …
  • Any info on the total number of recruits the staff is looking for re 2021- great class to date including the PSU transfer.Any word on the status of Bester recovery? The spring prospectus said Bester is expected to be ready by fall camp. Unsure on nu…
  • Akron announces they're cutting their athletic budget by 20%
  • 247 named his as a top prospect they expect to see receive a P5 offer before the end of summer. Really good pickup.
  • I think CM came up with “Ref, I want to call a timeout, but I will forget to signal for it”. I assumed this thread would devolve into something stupid like this after the MAC championship. Only took 4 replies before someone thought they were funny…
