Buffalo and Howard scoring more points against Kent than we did... Kent D-Line played awesome. Pushed our guys around...

Agreed. In addition to the continuing special teams and turn overs woes, my biggest concern today was the O line. It did not matter who the RB was today; the O line gave very few running lanes the whole game.

Kent has size and physicality on the DL. We didn't have much success running the ball last year either. It was all Santa.

Tough call; Santa has played in 1 loss in his short career and it was against the highest ranked team (#19) we have played in a while. Tough to pull Santa based on his body of work, and what he has accomplished. No matter who they start, the next guy has to be ready. At some point in this season, Santa will have to make a play against a quality opponent like he did against Nebraska. He has to be ready. Childers skills may become more valuable as the weather turns. Strange that at the end of camp, Thompson was actually ahead of Childers.

Good points. It is almost inevitable we will need both Santa and Childers at times during the season, and both need to be ready. As the weather gets worse, Childers may be more of the go to guy. Yes, Thompson was ahead of Childers, but not now; is that Thompson falling back or Childers improving?

Childers showed a little of what he is capable of doing today. He signed with Memphis in 2015 while Justin Fuente was building a juggernaut there so it would appear that he has some talent. He has progressed to the point that the coaches have confidence that he can give the team a chance to win a game but that goes against the belief of some on this board that the coaches are trying to find ways to undermine this team.

They can confirm that belief by starting Graham when Childers and Santa are healthy...

Maybe Thompson can be the new wildcat QB to minimize the beating Childers will take...

Can Childers hit the deep ball? He didn't today, though that might have been the wind. I think the lack of anything close to a consistent passing attack allowed Kent State to concentrate on stopping the run.

Childers is a really tough kid but his accuracy today wasn't very good. A lot of the completed passes were great catches. Santacaterina gives you the deep threat, a good running back combined with deep passing is a serviceable offense. With our defense that's all we should need.

You don’t think the heavy rain had anything to do that as well?? I mean come on, it was obvious any team is going to run in that weather regardless who your QB is
