    Good stuff.

    Don't be surprised to see Akron in on a lot of kids we are looking at.

    Yes. It will be very interesting to see what happens at Akron with Bowden as coach and Tressel lurking in the background.

    My roommate went to Detroit Catholic Central. Some good players come out of there. Michigan's defensive captain last year (Mike Martin) played there.

    I don't know about their athletic facilities, but their campus has building with giant holes in the walls. The stadium is pretty nice for a MAC team. Almost has a nice minor league baseball feel to it.

    Akron opened a new football stadium in 2008.

    It also has a very nice indoor practice facility that was built in 2004.

    The school just completed a $300 million infrastructure project that included the constructition of about ten new buildings on campus.

    The student population is over 24,000.

    Most don't realize it but MAC schools probably have the same or even more financial resources than Syracuse University.

    Wow and they still didn't put a full field in their practice facility. Looks very nice but still Oh Lord to an 80 yard field w/ half of an endzone.

    it was a question - you got issues with a simple question ?

    how in the world did you come to the conclusion it was some negative post?

    you may have some anger issues to look at

    Yeah, but it appears that Akron has spent much more money on its football program than SU has since 2004.

    And we're talking about Akron for gosh sakes!

    Must be that thriving Ohio economy!

    Seriously though, you're right. Good for them but moreso very very poor on our part.

    Maybe Akron needs to reassess their priorities.

    Don't underestimate Ohio kids wanting to stay in Ohio. It's kind of like Texas that way. I spend a lot of time there, as my wife's family is from there, and it is really insular in it's thinking. "Ohio rules all." Not criticizing it (much). Just is what it is.

    Don't think Stepac had a formal written offer - more like a conditional offer based upon other prospects, ie Ebo.

    I don't like this at all.

    After Chris Christie eats the Buttgers program whole, we need to pass the hat on a collection and pay him to eat akron too...
