More not so flattering news coming out of Kent State today as another men's basketball player has recently been in trouble with the law.
It had not been reported that junior Frank Henry-Ala was charged August 16 -- fifteen days before Chris Singletary's resisting arrest charge -- for operating a vehicle under the influence and lane violations, according to Portage County records.
He was pulled over on Interstate 76 for a marked lanes violation at 2:06 a.m. When given a breathalyzer test Henry-Ala registered a .083, according to the State High Way Patrol. The legal limit is .08.
Note: I am currently working on a series of post entitled “How They Fared.” Each post will highlight a former Kent State baseball players and how they fared -- catchy name huh? -- throughout their major or minor league seasons. I would like to get the input of Kent State coach Scott Stricklin, but I haven’t gotten that far with it yet. If anyone has fun stories about some of those players or just interesting factoids let me know at email@example.com and I will make sure to include them in the series. Thanks in advance!

Life doesn’t get much easier for the Kent State football team this week as the Ohio Bobcats come to town for homecoming week. Like the Flashes, the Bobcats are a deceptive 1-5. Both of their conference losses have come against Western Division teams.

This year’s Mediocrity Bowl..... err, Battle of the Wagon Wheel at Dix Stadium, was a fun, fun football game to watch. Two teams that mirror each other in skill level fighting it out for neighborhood bragging rights.
