RE: Football thoughts
I think it comes down to having enough money to be able to hire competent assistants. Here are last years numbers from a few MAC schools. There was a 500k difference between Kent and Western last year. Hard to compete against that.

RE: Football thoughts
I question whether the university should even continue to have a football program. There doesn't seem to be any point to it. Lots of fine universities with fine D I basketball programs don't have football. It would be great to have a decent football program, but there isn't the money or the fan interest, it seems, to make that viable except for a year or two once in a blue moon. I mean, since 1976 they have had only TWO seasons where they won three or more games more than they lost - 1987 and 2012.

RE: Football thoughts
It is obvious that the AD does not know what to do with this program. In fact, he has been the overseer of its status for long enough. I am hoping that the President is tired of our FB program being an insult to the rest of a fine university. She has been at enough universities with successful programs to sense when things are not right. Maybe she will apply pressure on the athletic administration to right the ship. That is my hope.

Yes, with her degrees from Alabama and Auburn, I think the trustees expected she could do something to make the football team a priority

RE: Football thoughts
A few coaches that should be looked at...

K.C. Keeler 58 - Sam Houston State - 208-83 - $250k/yr
2016 Eddie Robinson FCS Coach of the Year
Currently averaging 537/ypg

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/K._C._Keeler
http://www.gobearkats.com/ViewArticle.db...=209384109

Bo Pelini 49 - Youngstown State -87-38 - $213k
2016 FCS National Championship appearance
Currently averaging 453/oypg
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bo_Pelini

John Grass 49 - Jacksonville State - 37-7 - $251k
2015 FCS National Championship appearance
Currently averaging 371/oypg

http://www.jsugamecocksports.com/staff.aspx?staff=122
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Grass..._football)


If we want a coach that is looking to shoot to the top then I would go for this guy.

Mike Houston 45 - James Madison University - 62-20 - $300k/yr
2016 AFCA FCS Coach of the Year
2016 FCS National Champion

No offense, but why would any good FCS coach be interested in the Kent State job? It seems like they are better positioned to jump to a better FBS program than Kent.

Errr, I don't know. If I were making $250K and in a very good, safe situation, I wouldn't give it up for $500K for a program that's a mess. It seems to me that you could easily Geno Ford your career. I'd wait at 250K until I could get a situation that I feel I would be very likely to be successful at all (and probably pays more too).
