As always, Kent State fans can tune in tonight from 6:00-7:00P.M. and listen to the 'Inside Kent State Sports' show from the Water Street Tavern in Kent. If you can't be there in person, listen in at AM 1350 or www.sportsradio1350.com.
Steve Hare from the Kent Sports Report is reporting that QB Giorgio Morgan was at full go in practice on Wednesday. We will see how it plays out Saturday with Spencer Keith in the mix as well. Expect Keith to start and take most if not all of the snaps vs. the RedHawks. Hare also reports that starting guard Mike Fay has torn his meniscus. He'll have surgery on Saturday and could be back in two weeks. Dante Campbell will jump back into the starting spot in place of Fay. Also, LB Dorian Wood suffered a concussion against Iowa State so freshman Luke Batton (Nordonia) will make the start in his place.

As has been documented before, Brian Lainhart and Cobrani Mixon have been best friends for as long as they can remember. After winning a state championship together at Cincinnati Colerain High School, they are now the only two captains left from the start of the season as they lead the defense and the team. The Daily Kent Stater takes another look at the friendship between the two, and the competitive nature that both bring to their lives.
When KSU offensive line coach Terry Tilghman played at East Carolina the players weren't allowed to join fraternities so they started their own called Foot-Phi. Tilghman has brought that concept with him to Kent State.

Even though its a little late (and a little out dated), the paper has their MAC Preview out today.
The Miami RedHawks are being road warriors to the start the 2009 season. After a "home" game in Cincinnati against Kentucky to start the season, the team traveled to Boise State and Western Michigan. The team's first true home game at Yager Stadium will be October 3 vs. Cincinnati.
Miami QB Zac Dysert is more of an athletic presence than Daniel Raudabaugh, so that should throw another threat at Pete Rekstis' defense on Saturday night. Miami coach Michael Haywood encourages Dysert to take off and run if the opportunity presents itself.
The QB position isn't the only position that is not set in stone with Miami. The running back unit is also up for grabs. True freshman running back Roman Lawson (Shaker Heights) figures to get more action this week.
It has been a rough couple of days for the Akron Zips' football program. In case you haven't heard about what has been going on, here is a recap. Head Coach J.D. Brookhart's seat was pretty hot coming into the season. Now it must be burning.
