Akron was defeated by Syracuse, 29-3, in Rob Ianello's first game as coach. Ianello, a former Notre Dame assistant, took over for J.D. Brookhart, who was fired after a 3-9 season. Ianello didn't get any breaks from the schedule maker. In addition to the Orange, the Zips play at Kentucky and Indiana in the first month of the season. Things should improve once Akron begins Mid-American Conference play.
As a run-up to the start of the season, the Wiz will display one poster each day until our supply is exhausted.
Then we turn it over to readers, who will vote on the poster of the year. In the meantime, send your team's poster schedule to jayzuma (at) gmail.com.
Last year, the site displayed 69 posters. This is poster No. 68 for 2010. Thanks to Gregg!
