Im not understanding the point to this game. They have a decent drive and instead of going for it on 4th down 21 pts they kick a fg. I get that they don't expect to win the game but they aren't even trying to compete. I can't even accept the playing to avoid injuries excuse because they are still playing the starters.

RE: 2017 Football
To me what is sad about this game is that we are so ill prepared for who we are playing. No, we can not beat this team, but we can take a professional approach. No doubt we need better players but we must give the players we have a chance to look their best. With this AD, I am not sure that it does any good to say that we need a transfusion in the FB program.

RE: 2017 Football
Total embarrassment.

I can understand being physically overmatched, but there is absolutely no excuse for the complete & total mental unpreparedness of this team. Blame lays squarely on the coaching staff. 11 penalties, and counting... Are you kidding me? The HC always aludes to the fact that he recruits leaders & team captains. WTF?

Total lack of offensive creativity. If anyone believes Treadwell is in line to be the next HC, you are insane. One yard of passing yardage. Are you kidding me? And Treadwell stated at halftime, that was the game plan.

I don't know what was worse, listening to the ESPN crew, or the KSU play-by-play. The non-stop gushing over Clemson by ESPN made it unwatchable. Then listening to the KSU announcers with their excuses (e.g. the weather in August didn't help...) added to the embarassment.

With the number of returners from last year, there was no excuse for this performance.

I guess I will stick with the golf teams. Thank goodness for Golfstat.com.

Kent State out-scored Akron today against a better team ... so there is hope.

Not even attempting to compete is the worst aspect of the game today. Literally not even trying. The kids deserve better. This coaching staff needs to read the book Extreme Ownership.

Just what are our announcers supposed to say? Be an idiot "fan" like you and tear everything and everyone to shreds? What good does that do? I listened to the game from start to finish and if you knew anything about sports or sports on the radio you'd actually get it. They weren't making excuses, just trying to spin things for the university in which they work.

These coaches and student-athletes don't need clowns like you. Go away.

At least Akron TRIED. Totally gutless performance from Kent's coaches.

1-11 is likely.

RE: 2017 Football
1-11 is always likely. it really doesn't matter who the coach is because a really good one will be gone in one year anyway. We are the last place in Ohio that a good football player will come. Once in awhile we get lucky but that's all it is. It's sad since the rest of the athletic program is at least competitive if not above average but the money needed to turn football around is just not there.

Treadwell should have been gone two years ago - as noted earlier Miami had no tolerance for what he did to that program. To make a team totally one dimensional against a good defense is such an elementary sin in football that the guy doesn't belong in peewees! I thought he would get axed last year after the Toledo or BG games - don't understand the loyalty shown by Haynes - I hope PH is medically OK - but not sure your 1-11 is too far off the mark and not something you want after X years at the helm!
