Unfortunately for Kent State football, the Ohio Bobcats pulled out a 27-24 win at Buffalo last night on ESPN2. We were watching every play, rooting for a Buffalo victory, but it didn't happen as Ohio escaped with a wild victory. The updated MAC East Standings are...
Temple 5-0 7-2
Ohio 5-1 7-3
KENT STATE 4-2 5-5
I am not sure what to make of this one. Garrett Wolfe, from the Chicago Bears, and formerly of Northern Illinois, suffered a lacerated kidney in Sunday's game against Arizona. Wolfe was urinating blood at halftime. The injury is exactly the same as Kent State's Eugene Jarvis. Jarvis has targeted Wolfe has a model and an example of someone who made it in the NFL despite his small stature. Wolfe is listed at 5-7, 185 pounds. Back in August, Jarvis told USA Today, "Now you don't see too many 6-3, 260-pound running backs. You see guys like (the Chicago Bears') Garrett Wolfe, (the San Diego Chargers') Darren Sproles. … They are opening doors for players like myself. They are showing it's possible."
