Jawon Chisholm quietly put together a very stout career at Akron. He was invited to play in the College Gridiron Showcase in Arlington, TX in January.
The opportunity allowed Chisholm to showcase his talents in front of NFL Scouts.
Chisholm now awaits his March 10th Pro Day. It will be a day for him to show his combine skills.
Chisholm is one of the more interesting prospects at the position with his six-foot and 200 pound frame with enough power and burst to really put scouts to the work on where he shakes out when the NFL Draft rolls around on April 30th in Chicago.
The basketbros are back after another undefeated week for Penn State shootyhoops. Tim Aydin, Bill DiFilippo and Eric Gibson are ready to discuss both of Pat Chambers' squad's wins last week: at home against Akron and on the road against Bucknell. Can the guys be even more complementary of D.J. Newbill than usual? Was the monster game Ross Travis had against Bucknell a sign of things to come? Since all three were in attendance, was there anything during the game against Bucknell that stood out that you normally wouldn't notice on TV? What should we expect during the upcoming week's slate of games, when PSU hosts Virginia Tech -- which is quietly a massive game -- and travels to Marshall? Get ready, get set and get excited, because the best damn Penn State basketball podcast on the Internet is back.

My son Ken and I are preparing a class titled "Bill W., Dr. Bob, and the Cure of Alcoholism: The Rest of the Story." And the "rest of the story" may surprise you when you see how much information has simply not reached AAs or the general public about Alcoholics Anonymous, its roots, its succession of programs, the content of those programs, the reason for their successes, and changes in A.A. itself.
The current three radio shows are about A.A.'s first historical epoch--the period when the first three AAs got sober before there were any 12 Steps, 12 Traditions, Big Books, war stories, or meetings like those today. We will show you the similarity of actions taken by the first three AAs and the useful picture they provide as to how the original, simple, effective A.A. ideas can be applied in recovery today. Our three presentations are of how AA #1, Bill W., got sober (something we have already presented); how AA #2, Dr. Bob, got sober (also presented); and how AA #3, Akron attorney Bill D., got sober. Tonight, we discuss Bill D.'s story.
AA # 3's story is important for at least two major reasons. First, because Bill D.'s release from an Akron hospital on July 4, 1935, "a free man" represented the first success of the original program Bill W. and Dr. Bob began developing that summer. Second, because it marked the founding of the first A.A. group in the world, Akron #1.
After presenting Bill D.'s story, I will review the techniques the three pioneers used, and show how they rested primarily on admission that they were licked, determination to quit and do whatever it took to accomplish that, a firm decision to entrust their lives to the care and direction of their Creator, taking their basic ideas from the Bible, and then reaching out wherever needed to those still suffering from alcoholism. Here we go!
The Cleveland Cavaliers are making their return to the playoffs after a four year hiatus, a hiatus that the majority of the fan base doesn't even acknowledge, let alone talk about.
One of the few who will talk about it is Scott Raab, Esquire journalist, and author of 'The Whore of Akron'. Raab joins Josh Eberley to talk Cleveland basketball, and what the return of LeBron, and post-season basketball means to him and his city.
