Akron Zips 2011 season thread. Allow me to introduce myself, Im the new head coach of the the Akron Zips.Today Bowl game was my first time coaching this team and it feels good to use them because then i can see where i will be strong at next year and where i will need to improve.We played a great Texas Tech team that played there hearts out,hats off to Em. It was a hard fought game, score went back and fort for much of the first half of the game.At half time the score was 20-17 Akron. We came out in the second half with the idea that we were just gonna pound the rock with our 218 pound RB Devoe Torrence who racked up a 124 yards on 21 carries.Right about the 4th qtr we decided to run the clock being up only 3 points when Matt Rodgers threw a pass that was tiped at the line and it went back for 6.So now we had to basically abandon the run and get down feild and try to score with only 2mins left in the game, and that we did with the 5 year senior hitting WR after WR until he finally found his half back in the flats for the goahead scamper into the endzone. Now the for the outlook into the offseason.This is difinetly gonna be a rough offseason We are losing our starting QB Matt Rodgers,Two of our top rated WRs not to mention a 2 players on our OLine and the guys behind dont look like they are remotely ready to start.On the defensive side of the ball we will take a big hit losing players on the dline(5 alone are DEs /palmface) and believe a couple CBs. Now for the upside We still have i believe 13 spots to fill so , in the offseason recruiting will be cruicial. After the game winning TD look who decided to taunt the sideline....15yards maybe?who cares hes a senior! Who can spot the hole in this picture? J.Root Our TE does a good job of looking the ball in! That will be it for now until after the offseason...maybe we get some transfers which would be great lol.
