Akron joins Big East Men’s Soccer
« on: November 16, 2022, 09:21:42 AM »
Starting 2023. The MAC dissolved for soccer. This is a nice pick up for the Big East in Men’s Soccer. They are a good program going back 3 different head coaches.

At first I thought this would be a welcome back to the BE for Larry Williams.

But he's moved on to San Francisco apparently.

Is it fair to say that Akron's value to the Big East is Zip?

Akron will be Men’s Soccer only, and, they will be one of the best teams in the league. Great pick up for the Big East.

I know that Akron is a historically solid soccer program.    What is their team name again?

I’m aware you were trying to be funny but it fell flat because they have been to 5 NCAA College Cup Final Fours in the past 13 seasons, including winning a National Title. 18 out of the past 21 NCAA Tourneys. They add a lot to the profile of Big East Men’s Soccer.

Right.  Jokes aren't always about accuracy.  It was a pun.  It's okay to relax a bit.

I couldn’t be more relaxed.

A more effective joke would have been to say, “It’s fair to say Akron’s value to the Big East is not Zip.”

This is the long game to get LeBron more involved in the Big East.

Lol, well, technically, no. Jared “Iggy” Embick is a St. Louis guy. He’s been their head coach since 2013, and was their top assistant prior since 2007.

Not good. But they are the Ivy of the 651 area code.

They had a couple of really good D-3 seasons about 5 years ago or so, deeper NCAA runs.....however outside of that, most of the past decade they were a competitive D-3 program, winning record but not make the D-3 NCAA Tourney.

They have been getting crushed their first couple of D-1 seasons.
