How do you turn around a program that's only been to one bowl game in its entire history? Well, it's pretty simple real.
HELMETS, and a lot of them.
Earlier this offseason Akron showed off its new shiny golden chrome helmets that it will wear during the 2014 season, and on Saturday Terry Bowden showed off another new helmet the Zips will be wearing this season.
First you get the helmets, then you get the talent, then you get the wins, and then you get the job offer from a major conference school...erm I mean championships.
