What is eSports??? .... a new league?

More than a new league, but a new way of playing sports! Instead of having to run around and get sweaty, it's all done on the computer. Akron is big in it. There's Rocket League and Overwatch championships, and everything. It's sports for the people who aren't physically able to do sports. Acorn was ranked 3rd nationally earlier this year, in Rocket League - > https://www.uakron.edu/im/news/akron-esp...in-nation/

I think Acorn dropped Baseball as a sport so they can do eSports instead

Too bad they didn't have Pacman or Space Invaders leagues when I was in Kent State. I might have earned a scholarship

I crushed Battlezone back in the day. 05-mafia

I think "sport" is a stretch. They're games, and I love games and games can be seriously competitive. But sitting at a console is not a sport. Not that the semantics matter that much.

Hand-eye coordination and extremely quick reflexes. Not dissimilar to being a hockey goalie or a race car driver.
Not only e-sports a number of colleges are getting into drone racing and I've even seen some races on one o fthe ESPN channels! I'm not sure Akron hired our former coach back - I read where they hired a former Cinci Red player - maybe Szabo?

Wow. I am getting old. That's correct. I was thinking of their previous coach being a KSU guy.

Akron coaches were at the KSU baseball game last night. Thought that was a little odd. Maybe they were handing in their resumes?

I would bet they are scouting already.

Probably there to remind those guys sitting in the Kent dugout not playing that we're an option close to Kent where you could get a bunch of playing time.

Wonder if they’ll remind them they have 0 scholarships and it’s basically pay-to-play...

at 11.7 scholarships for ANY D1 school, players 25-34 on a roster are probably pretty close to pay to play on our roster as well. baseball is the worst of scholarship sports

Have we made inroads with baseball and endowed scholarships?

I believe that baseball scholarships are allowed to be partial, therefore giving more athletes some assistance.
