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
All the coaches I mentioned are FCS coaches so we would be the stepping stone to a better job. All of them have been at their programs less than 4 years but have turned them into top FCS schools. So they could parlay the $250k to $500k to $2mil+ in a 2-3 year time frame. Worst case they struggle at Kent and go back down to FCS for a couple of years then bump up again at another school. The JMU coach Houston has coached at 3 schools for a short time and each one he has turned into a winner in that short time. So I would gladly have him come in and help us win some games then move on.

RE: Football thoughts
Is there a requirement for KSU to be an active football member of MAC to maintain membership in MAC for all other sports? Or is there a A-10 type structure/solution where football is Pioneer Conference and all other sports are better supported with $$ redirected from FBS football?

Would Bo Pelini take the job at KSU?

If I were Pelini, I would not. I figure at YSU, my future would be:

YSU -> winning seasons -> back to P5

Evaluating Kent State, that turns into:

YSU -> 1 winning season -> Kent State -> 5 losing seasons -> NFL position coach job

RE: Football thoughts
I would think Pelini would be the hardest to get. He receives pay from Nebraska through next year and he doesn't seem like he wants to let them off the hook. There are probably a few P5 schools that will offer him a spot once he becomes available. But we can always hope that we have a shot at him.

Not football, but Geno Ford.

Well here's some food for thought - as I noted a couple of weeks ago - I checked the Akron board and some of their fans were hoping to get Pelini - if they can dump Bowden - two shops adrift

RE: Football thoughts
I note that Kent State has 3 points at halftime. If I'm figuring correctly, that means that they have failed to score a touchdown in 21 of 22 quarters against FBS opponents. Awful.

four pass attempts at half - we must be looking at some kind of new standard for fewest passes in the modern era of college football!
