  1. Let’s see if Akron can stay in the game until the fourth quarter. If the Zips have a passing game they could be trouble. Good thing it’s in Columbus.

  2. Good decision and I’m looking forward to seeing the other two QB’s who are both very talented.

    1. 👍 Eager to see them. My impression from the limited time that we’ve seen them. McCard has appeared to be very efficient in the mode of Stroud. Miller has shown outward enthusiasm on and off the field.
