If what he says is accurate, how does a 7-win Akron rep, who just got killed in the MACC, ‘talk trash’ about a 10-win team whose stadium he’ll play in?

Didn’t PJ Fleck say pretty much the same thing when he was at WMU? I’m pretty sure Akron is known for thier trash talk.

Your Defense played us hard in the first half, we just wore you down.

There was one area where Akron kicked our ass.

Your band was AMAZING!!!! After you guys played at halftime I couldnt even watch FAU's band.

Ouch.

When the best thing an opponent in a bowl game can say is “your band is better than ours” then you know you got your a$$ handed to you in a football game.03-lmfao

LOL! especially when the band doing the butt-kicking is Akron's! 03-lmfao

If you weren't so eager to play UAB I could have been saying nice things about Ohio's band. I think Akron brought their entire band to the game.

Yep. In our game last year, Akron (attempted to) burn and smash an oar on the field pre-game. We won 41-0.

Boise, the "he who shall not be named" of NIU football.

I fall back on my favorite saying: Bowl games are important, maybe even program altering when you're victorious. If you lose, it was never important in the first place.

See, win-win for everyone in a bowl game!

RE: Good Luck Zips!!!!
I'll add my bowl disaster story:

WMU faced Rice in the Texas Bowl in 2008, which was essentially a home game for Rice.

Down 24-0 at halftime, and 38-0 at the start of the 4th quarter (we then scored 2 garbage TDs to make it 38-14). The only bowl game I've seen us in where we looked out of sorts from beginning to end.

trust me, we would have brought the entire Marching 110 if we weren't traveling internationally.
