    Oregon State/Akron & Beavers vs. Zips Game watch/Future opponent comment thread

    Figured I might as well start one before someone else does. I want to see why Akron is favored.

    Neither team is great. We should win (team played below expectations today) regardless. I'll take OSU. PAC-12 vs. MAC, easy for RPI.

    Obama at the game. Must have snuck in for the end of the ISU game, right?

    Just after game ended. Fred said he sat really close to where his wife sat for the ISU game.

    They didn't say anything if he did come in, and I'm sure you'd notice him coming in, security and all.

    Will he break down the game with the announcers at half-time?

    Akron plays a good man defense, and they appear to shoot pretty well so far.

    The President didn't get as good of a reception as Coach Hoiberg, but it was still neat to have him at game pic.twitter.com/msPfNQHkiM

    I will be surprised not to see atleast 5000 Oregon State fans in attendance for tomorrow's game as their football team plays in Hawaii the day after against Boise State, what a luxury that is that your basketball and football teams both in Hawaii at the same time!!

    I am from Akron and go to ISU. Also my high school graduating class had over 50% of the college bound seniors go to the University of Akron including my best friend from High School. It will be nice to go back home wearing my Cyclone gear in a bar in Akron, Ohio and have everyone just wonder "WTF is this ISU fan doing here?" It is a personal thing, plus Akron will probably be in the tourney and it will be nice to say we have a win over a tourney team.
