Kent State Flashes

Kent State not focused on rivalry, just winning

By admin Published: November 4, 2009


The Kent State football team is taking a very business like approach into their game at Akron on Saturday afternoon.  All season, coach Doug Martin has gotten his team to focus on every game being a "one game MAC Championship game."  This game will be no different.  “I talked to (the team) Sunday night, and I told them I don’t want to hear anything about wagon wheels and rivalries,” said Martin. “All of that will take care of itself.  What we need to focus on is just what we’ve done the last three or four weeks. We’ve been very focused and very single minded about each one of these games being their own championship.  This one is no different.  We have to go play this one the same way.  We can’t let any of those outside distractions cloud our view of things.  We’ve played very well the last couple weeks because we have been very, very focused.”

Dave Carducci from the Record Courier is writing about the big game this weekend.

The Daily Kent Stater is breaking down the Flashes' focused approach as well.

Kent State has put a limited number of 250 student tickets on sale for Saturday's game.  They are at a discounted price of $10.  I suggest students take advantage of that deal and gobble up those tickets then get themselves over to InfoCision Stadium on Saturday.

The game will be televised on Fox Sports Ohio, as well as on  Kent State alum Jeff Phelps and Hanford Dixon will have the call.  The game will also be available over the K-Zone.  

Both teams have put up their game notes at their respective athletic websites.  Kent StateAkron. has put up a video of what the Wagon Wheel means to them.  Kent State fans, what does it mean to you?
