RE: Kent State @ Central Michigan
Sendy's blueprint is starting to look more like what we were used to with Christian. Bringing in JUCO players that by their second year can compete for all-Mac spots. Edwin last year now Zabo and De La Rosa this year. There's definitely some growing pains the first year but it's worth it the next year. A few weeks ago I think most of us thought we wouldn't be losing much more than role players after this year but that's no longer true. Zabo has really come around.

One comment on the Duling dunk. Crazy impressive display of athleticism... As for how he hung on the rim, I hope the coaches tell him not to change a thing. With how fast he was going if he let go sooner than he'd risk a scary fall. That type of a play should not be called a tech.

That was incompetent officiating.

Overall records are very similar, but I think we should be feeling significantly better than OU and Akron's fan base. OU is tied for dead last in the conference and Akron is just 1 game clear of that dubious feat. Just more proof that Rob and this team are doing fine.

The team is starting to look pretty good, but I'd like to see one more player, e.g Duling, Peterson, Pippen or Ridenour, really step it up and be a consistently solid contributor to go along with what we are getting from De la Rosa, Zabo, Avery and Walker.

RE: Kent State @ Central Michigan
For the Zips, I feel like this was to be expected. Not just losing KD but half that roster. I actually think they've exceeded expectations. (Or maybe the MAC is just that bad)

As for OU, a different story. He's actually underperformed in my opinion. However, they've had some catastrophic injuries which have completely derailed their seasons.

I'd also caution folks against thinking these are the glory years reincarnated simply because we had one good week last March. This is still a .500 squad with some head-scratching losses.

I agree on the Akron. This is a rebuilding year and they're shaping up to at least be competitive. They have several good looking transfers waiting in the wings for next year (as do we).

As for OU they losing Simmons as a grad transfer to Michigan really hurt them. He was their leading scorer. I wonder if he's enjoying that 8.4 mpg and 1.3 ppg he's getting this year.
