The problem with that is if Kent State isnt careful they will soon be playing in front of 428 fans in February at the MAC Center. Sure, there is plenty of time in this young season to get the thing rolling and the people on this board are fans regardless. But when losses to SELa and Loyola start piling up who really wants to go see the Western Michigan game on Valentine’s Day ( for instance)

There is no excuse for SELA loss ... but Valpo/Loyola are pretty solid Missouri Valley teams ... Kent could have won the Valpo game ... Loyola. don't know.

Give the comp a little respect. ... Can't wait to see the team in person, but might not be until Christmas time ...

No doubt. Valpo in particular has more sustained success than most MAC teams, including Kent State in recent history and Loyola is always is in the thick of the gauntlet that is the Horizon League. And surely both are the flagship programs of their respective athletic departments.

Loyola has been in the MVC for the last 4 seasons. Their flagship program is probably men’s volleyball which won back to back national championships a couple years ago and draws a very loyal following. I just happened to be on the Loyola campus this weekend: beautiful campus right on Lake Michigan.

Dear god axeme I need to get out more. The once great Horizon league is now a shell of itself and I didn’t even realize it.

RE: Kent Sate vs. Valpo & Loyola
fallsdog, teams change leagues all the time. I remember when Akron was in and out of one conference before they even played a game in it. There was time when I could name, from memory, each team in every conference. Now, I bet I couldn't even name 40%. I don't even try to keep current on any conference but the MAC. Axeme, you are probably right about volleyball. Their NCAA basketball championship was so long, long ago.

They hired a new coach, Porter Moser, when they started to transition from the Horizon to the MVC, and he has been building a pretty good program. With Creighton and now Wichita St. gone, they could challenge for the MVC title this year. They’re getting their first AP votes in 30 years. And thanks to us, are now 7-0!
