I agree with this!!! ...

I mean, if Kent was playing an Ohio-type schedule every year (which should be the model for all MAC teams), that's one thing.

But paying the bills every year with the likes of Alabama (twice), LSU, Penn State (twice), Clemson, Louisville and others consistently in the Top 25 a sling shot going against a cannon.

Understand ... these type of teams are not playing to just be bowl eligible, like the Purdues and Missouri's and Rutgers of the world. They are playing to get into the 4-team playoffs.

Playing backups and such is secondary to piling up the stats against teams like Kent, that have absolutely no shot at winning.

This is a pure money grab (usually around $1-mil a game), not a recipe for success but failure (are you counting the season-ending injuries once again)

And (2) it's a taffy pull for recruiting.

Hazell hit the perfect storm inheriting a pair of NFL linemen (and a B10 transfer Olineman), a NFL return specialist (when he played) and a fourth NFL player (Nix) who has found a home switching from defense to offense.

It doesn't matter who the coach is ... Nick Saban or Urban ... you can't build a winning MAC program and cash checks at the same time in this league.

And just as an aside ... wonder how successful the Kent basketball program would be with the AD doing that schedule.

Not saying the $$$ philosophy is wrong, especially in this day and age ... but the expectations have to be in line with that philosophy as well.

Firing Haynes is no different than firing Doug Martin or Jim Corrigall or pick a name ... it's just going to cost a bit more for the next coach to have the same results ... meaning Kent will probably have to play all four non-con games for $$$ before the start of MAC play in the future.

This is not how you win, or even become competitive, in college football.

I would say this is a great assessment of where we are/have been and are stuck. Hazel was fortunate to play Rutgers and Army the year we made it to Detroit. Still as a loyal fan since 1969 - this offense is one of the ugliest excuses for football I can remember and I can only point to the OC for the blame. Funny thing was with Corrigall we had an offense but no defense?

Very sad and I feel for the young man - he has a lot of heart and is a competitor - but there was no way he was going to make it through the whole season with the number of times he had the ball and was the only real target for the defense.

RE: KSU @ Marshall
Really sad to see Holley go out like this with everything he's given over the last 5 years. Any chance he gets this year back (or wants to)? The quarterback position has been a nightmare ever since Spencer Keith graduated. The last two years in particular. Freshman wins the job out of camp, injured week one and transfers. Another freshman takes over, shows signs of talent, done for the year. Now this year Mitchell is lost in camp and now Holley. So we're right back to Bollas. All he's shown me so far is he can be healthy when everyone else isn't. Get out while you can Crum!

RE: KSU @ Marshall
Unfortunately the Flashes play scared with a defeatist attitude. Blame lies squarely with the coaching staff. The OC is totally inept. All you have to do is watch/listen to his press conferences from the first two games, and see how ineffective the offensive has been for all three games.

The lack of discipline (quantity & stupidity of penalities) also demonstrates lack of effectiveness & preparation by the coaching staff. This is unacceptable.

Feel really bad for Nick Holly. After five years, it comes down to this.

I really believe that Bollas could be effective, if the OC gave him a decent and more imaginitive game plan to execute.

In all fairness to that team, Rutgers was ranked when we went there and beat them.

With Holley out, I would be shocked if they win another game.

RE: KSU @ Marshall
They will have a difficult time competing/winning with the lack of imagination from the OC no matter which QB is in the game. I think it is disheartening to the scholar athletes who practice/lift/study as much as the other MAC schools, and the coaches do not put them into games with a strategy to allow them even to compete, much less have an oportunity to win. Time to let the players know that the university values the program and their efforts and sacrifice and let Paul Haynes go now....

As an aging alumnus, I had planned to go to a few home games, But this program has hit yet another bottom. Disgusting. I also see the point spread has been steadily climbing and now varies between 43 and 44 points.

I have always tried to get to a game or two - I can live with a loss but not complete boredom generated under this OC. It reminds me of when Doug Martin ran out of O linemen and we lost at home to Buffalo by something like 3 to 9. I am no longer inspired to drive 3 hours each way
