Week 2 - Kennesaw State at KSU
The Kennesaw State Owls visit Dix Stadium this Saturday at 12 p.m. You can catch the game on ESPN3 if you can't make it to Kent.

Kennesaw State is ranked #7 in the current FCS poll. They are a run-first team that utilizes a triple-option attack. In week 1, a staggering 13 players had at least 1 carry in a 59-0 win over NAIA Point University, as the Owls accumulated 433 yards on the ground. Only 2 running backs had 7 or more carries, and their top RB graduated last year. Preparing for this game had to be very difficult.

Much like Arizona State, we have to contain the running game in order to win. Our defense played well enough to keep us in the game in spite of our offensive mishaps. If you recall, we had 5 fumbles in the 1st quarter, but still were only down 10-0 at the half, thanks almost entirely to our defense and punter Derek Adams. We also (when I say we, I mean Xavier Williams) dropped 2 wide open passes that would have resulted in touchdowns.

If we can stop shooting ourselves in the foot (feel like I've said that 100 times over the years), we should be able to move the ball much better this game. Kennesaw State is going to move the ball too. Like all of the top FCS programs, they are good enough to beat a lot of FBS teams. This could come down to who has the ball last. I'll take the flashes in a nail-biter:

Owls 31
Flashes 34

As of yesterday he was still in doubt for Saturday. From what I know it is not a health related issue.

Dominic Hill is also questionable.

From KentWired.com... "Carrigan is a (team) matter that we’re taking care of in-house. It’s too early to tell (if he’ll play Saturday).”

"Interesting" game plan. Start you backup QB and trail 13-3.

I am convinced that Dix Stadium is cursed. I think we need to build a new stadium on the other side of campus!

Side note: Maine and Temple had a field hockey game go to double OT at Dix Stadium this morning that was cancelled because it got too close to the start of the football game. Mini firestorm on Twitter.

Big INT in the endzone for the Flashes. Firestorm is heating up over the Field Hockey controversy I posted above.

Are they angry at the AD's who scheduled it? They could have scheduled it for, say, 5:00 p.m.

Every once in a while I make the right call! This game came down to who had the ball last. Make no mistake, this Kennesaw State team is better than a number of MAC teams. Don't let that FCS designation fool you.

+1. Weird saying a beating an FCS team is a culture shift win, but to me it is. They took some punches, but punched back. Brighter days ahead for Kent State football!
