  One of the most surprising things thus far at the University of Akron's spring practice is seeing No. 1 on the field flinging passes with relative ease. Given an extra year of eligibility, quarterback Kato Nelson should have been a prime candidate to enter the transfer protocol and take his talents elsewhere. But there he is. Throwing passes on a rope, moving in the pocket and generally looking good after shoulder surgery. "It was real tough, but the biggest thing for me was trying to coach up my teammates, coach up Zach [Gibson], that's my boy and I think that's what made it easier for me," he said of missing last season. "I felt like I was still part of the team by being around the guys."

Looking good in spring practice is one thing, doing so in the fall is different and there's no guarantee that he'll reclaim the Zips' starting job with the season kicks off. Gibson gained experience the past two seasons with 10 starts and newcomer DJ Irons, all 6-foot-6 of him, promises to add to the interesting nature of the UA quarterback room. Nelson is undaunted after spending those six games of last fall's truncated season on the sideline. So far, he said, he's throwing the ball well with no soreness and the shoulder is back. - Akron Beacon Journal

  The University of Akron will open its 2020 football season against Western Michigan in a Nov. 4 home game that likely will be nationally televised. With no breaks in the schedule, games will be played on successive Saturdays, with the regular season ending Dec. 12. The Zips' other home games will come Nov. 28 against Miami and Dec. 5 against Bowling Green. Away games will be at Ohio (Nov. 10), Kent (Nov. 17 ) and Buffalo (Dec. 12). The Mid-American Conference Championship Game will be played Friday, Dec. 18, in Detroit. Game times are still to be determined and no fans will be allowed at venues. After announcing the postponement of fall sports to next spring, the MAC reversed its decision Sept. 25, allowing only football to return to play with stringent guidelines, including testing four times a week, in place. - Akron Beacon Journal

  Data suggest a move by the University of Akron from Division I status to Division II would be complicated and, ultimately, expensive. The Akron chapter of American Association of University Professors (Akron-AAUP) requested UA officials entertain such a proposition in a position paper released last week. As $65 million is culled from a budget of $325 million in the coming days, the professors union recommended that UA pursue more cuts to the athletics department, including moving to Division II or cutting football altogether. UA's athletic operating revenue totals more than $37 million, according to its annual report to the NCAA. Overall expenses for the year were $37 million, which included $26 million in direct institutional aid.

Much of the $11 million in revenue generated from actual sports teams comes courtesy of the football team through income from payments from away games and media rights from the Mid-American Conference's broadcast contract with ESPN ($1 million, according to reports) and its family of networks and the school's multimedia rights from Learfield IMG locally ($500,000). The athletics department already knows it will take a $4.4 million cut to its direct institutional aid, which contributed to the loss of three teams. The department is due to take more hits with the next round of cuts, which will be announced in the coming days. However, a move to change UA's division status could result in more financial strain because of existing contracts. - Akron Beacon Journal

  University of Akron student-athletes will be back on campus in phased returns beginning July 6, according to a source with knowledge of the situation. No specifics were available, but a UA committee has been working on the protocols necessary to facilitate a restart of sports in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic in the hopes that fall athletics can begin. The final decision rests on approval from the administration. It doesn't take a leap of logic to guess which program will begin the process. Football, given its TV related revenue, would be the prime candidate to begin the push for which many questions will remain.

The football program may be especially challenged given the number of players on the roster and the fact that a significant portion of the roster will be returning from parts of the country where the virus continues to set records for new cases. More than 10 players from Georgia are listed on the roster and that state has averaged 1,073 new cases per day for the past week. Florida represents one of the nation's current hotspots. Florida has tallied more than 100,000 cases and reported 3,286 overnight. - Akron Beacon Journal

  The Football Bowl Subdivision Conferences, which includes the Mid-American Conference, announced today they have reached an agreement to delay selection of game times for early season games. The decision, which was subject to a June 1 deadline, was made in conjunction with college football's Power 5 and Group of 5 conferences and their broadcast partners, which include CBS Sports, ESPN, Fox Sports and their affiliates. "These kickoff times and network designations will be announced at a later date as we continue to prepare for the college football season," according to a statement. The coronavirus pandemic continues to wreak havoc on sports. Although the University of Akron last week said it intends to have students on campus in the fall, no decision on fall sports has been made. - Akron Beacon Journal

  University of Akron president Gary L. Miller said in an interview on WKSU (89.7-FM) the athletics department's looming budget cuts, expected to be announced in total Thursday, will include the loss of teams. Predicting which programs won't be cut proves a lot easier than predicting those that will. In recent weeks, Miller has consistently said he wants UA athletics to maintain its Division I status.

To maintain their membership in the Mid-American Conference, UA has to field teams in football, men's and women's basketball and volleyball. Teams outside of those could be potentially affected. UA, as have other institutions, has been put in a financial bind by the coronavirus pandemic which has affected all of American life. UA has 19 athletic programs, eight men's teams (baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, rifle, soccer and track and field) and 11 women's teams (basketball, cross country, golf, lacrosse, rifle, soccer, softball, swimming and diving, tennis, track and field and volleyball). - Akron Beacon Journal
