Actually you can blame Ohio. If we hadn't s**t the bed against zippy, this would never have happened.

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!

It was all about those extra 15 practices where you get to start working on next year this year.

Count your blessings Zip fans, at least you're not getting shellacked by a team placing fourth in the C-USA West like SMU is tonight.

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

Horrible matchup.
MAC is being laughed at today.

Its not our fault, we wanted to play FSU in independence bowl but FSU dodged us to play the #3 in the cusa west southern miss. Toledo I think wanted to play us but couldnt because of contractual obligations with Dollar General. Neither FAU nor TEmple wanted an Owl vs Owl game.

So Kiffin literally called Akron's AD a "d**k" during the post-game presser. With his small kid sitting next to him, no less.

Akron fans, any word through the grapevine on what exactly he said that riled up Kiffin (not that he needs much to rile up)? I tend to picture any 'trash talk' to be of the TIC good-natured ribbing variety. Especially by a big underdog.

I know that, at the end of the day, going to a bowl is better than sitting home. But the whole Boca Bowl felt like one big perception headache for Akron. The game itself, the alleged bulletin board material, the Kiffin focus all game long, etc.

A coworker mentioned that Lane Kiffin was making fun of Akron's mascot being a kangaroo called zippy and that there are no kangaroos in Ohio. Sounds like the smack talk may have started because Kiffin started it.

That seems more likely.

Bowden should've told Kiffin: "I admit it, FAU's mascot is appropriate, given the nice set of hooters on your wife."

That might've sparked a luncheon brawl. 03-lol
