I've read the story on that tornado in Sports Illustrated multiple times and everytime I feel I want to be down there helping rebuild or with something. I know the athletic department has zero money to spare, but something should be given.

That would be a nice gesture though I too wonder where we would find that money.

I agree, no matter what the amount would be, it would be a very nice gesture.

RE: Alabama game
What if we don't take the full payday that was promised?

Better if you essentially do it by just giving them a check for how much you want to give and the money gained from Alabama just fills that hole. It gives the illusion that we are giving money rather than just not taking as much. Plus the money we don't take from Alabama is unlikely to go into anything outside of football funds whereas if we give money we can say where it goes.

RE: Alabama game
Thanks for all of the thoughts on helping those in Tuscaloosa. One idea is to purchase these shirts and wear them to the game with your other KSU gear.

Not sure if any of you guys are country music fans but the band Alabama will be playing Friday night before the game. It will be the first time the band has played together in 7 years.

When the game is close look for some head scratching calls or worse "no calls" from the officials to keep you down.

Attalla, what's your problem? I started this thread to help out the Kent State fans who are making the trip. It was all positive and had nothing to do with UAB.

Agreed, MobileBama - I do believe Attalla has a classic case of "little brother syndrome" - he sounds like a barner to me. Also, I can not believe that Attalla is an administrator - he would never make it on Tidefans.com.

I'm not a country music fan, but that is pretty big for Alabama (the band).

RE: Alabama game
We are travelling down for the game from PA and appreciate the food/bar recommendations. Looking for some insight on where to park for the game. Is there anyway someone can recommend what lot to park in?

As far as parking, University Mall on McFarland has a shuttle that runs on a regular basis 2-3 hours before the game and afterwards as well. Would not recommend trying to park close to the stadium - tight quarters and really no good place if you don't know people.
