You couldn’t have really expected much more out of the Kent State football team. I’ll take a 21-0 loss in this game fairly easy. Yes, the flashes could have upset the Boston College, but they would have had to play a perfect football game.

Halftime thoughts: Boston College

By admin Published: August 30, 2008

Score 14-0 BC

The game could be a lot worse than it is. Boston College has great size and athleticism at its skill positions. I am especially impressed with their running backs.

Evans expected to be in class monday

By admin Published: August 20, 2008

So all signs are currently pointing to Tyree Evans being in class Monday. Talk about playing things low key, but then again he is just a walk on after all -- A very talented, possibly one of the most talented players to ever play in the Mid-American Conference type walk on.

For those you, like me, who are interested in the type of game that Evans (may) bring to campus this season check out this Web site from the summer league he played on. The site is loaded with videos of him swishing 3’s. He definitely has a nice shooting touch.

Things I liked from Tuesday's scrimmage

By admin Published: August 13, 2008

The first inter-squad scrimmage of the season is rarely anything spectacular. Quarterbacks wear their red jerseys signifying they cannot be touched. Plays make clumsy mistakes as they learn the playbook, or work out at a new position. Sometimes it is just plain rust.

Either way, I never expect much from inter squad scrimmages, although there are a few items worth noting from to time.

Williams wants to play now in Denver

By admin Published: August 10, 2008

Found a nice Denver Post story about Jack Williams today. It's a little dated (July 22), but I don't think many people in these parts have seen it. You can check that out here.

Williams played special teams off the bat the other night against Houston. He got in on defense in the third quarter.

Random thoughts from football practice Friday edition

By admin Published: August 9, 2008

Friday marked the first full pads practice of the season for the Kent State football team. What better way to celebrate then to put all the players into an Oklahoma drill. It’s one defensive player versus one offensive player crashing together at a midway point. It was great.

Linebacker Cobrani Mixon, a Michigan transfer, had no problems shedding an offensive lineman during his first drill. It didn’t take long for the attention to move over to the defensive backs and wide receivers though.

football practice thoughts and ramblings

By admin Published: August 6, 2008

Freshman Sal Battles knows his way around the football field. It is knowing where Kent State football coach Doug Martin wants him that seems to be the problem.

In just his second collegiate practice, Battles could be seen working with the wide receivers, running backs, quarterbacks and even special teams Tuesday.

clearing up a few misconceptions

By admin Published: August 6, 2008

While there is still no word yet on the Tyree Evans scenario, I wanted to take a minute to clarify a statement on my last post about Antonio Gates and Josh Cribbs.

The previous Evans post was written on the fly with me working through my thoughts on the situation as I wrote. While I wrote "legal troubles" that is not entirely what I meant. The thought that I was truly trying to convey is that many athletes have come to Kent State, and many other Mid-major schools, with off-field baggage. Evans would not be the first. Kent State has taken the risk before.
