So we can't tailgate at the stadium. But not one said anything about stargazing at the stadium, right?

I'm not used to seeing this many points scored before halftime.

Really hard to watch this game with these boring announcers. There's no excitement or enthusiasm.

The penalties kept biting them in the butt.

RE: 2020 Kent State Football Season
Solid first game. Looks like we've got a nice RB room. Interesting Bangda didn't get a carry. I saw him in uniform. Didn't seem like a lot of WR's got run, but looks like we've got a couple capable guys outside of McKoy. McKoy had a nice night but he and Crum failed to connect on about 3 deep balls where he was open and he had another drop before his first INT. Could've had a monster day. Defense looked capable and looks to have good size in the secondary.

Anyone know what Trickett's injury is?

1st game of the season - a little rough around the edges (to be expected.)
learn from the mistakes & move onto division play with wind in your sails.
re. tv broadcast, i didn't miss ty, but i did miss the color guy (forget his name.)

Kent is currently sitting at #5 (549) in totals yards per game and #11 (44.5) in points per game. I can assume that playing Akron next week those numbers will go up.

Just wait till the team plays a bad game "Nancy Negatives" will come out in full force.

Crazy thought, if we win against Akron we clinch a .500 or better season, which historically has been a rarity for us. I guess if we get a bowl game we could still be under .500. But I'm not sure we'd foot the bill for a bowl game for a 3 win team.

I think they would foot the bill to have some type of positive news come out of this year. Win or lose they could tout it throughout the spring.

Just looked this up. It would be the first time since 1976-77 having back to back .500 seasons. It's fun watching the players and staff hit these types of goals!

I believe the MAC pays a chunk of the upfront $$$ for these bowl games then the MAC limits the teams share accordingly from the yearly CFB-Playoff Payout.

About the only way - I believe - a MAC team can make 'pure' money is to make one of the $-Million bowls, or do a bangup job in bowl ticket sales (20,000 plus) both of which are huge hills for a MAC team to climb.

RE: 2020 Kent State Football Season
There was question if we'd be willing to pay to send a 6-6 team to a bowl last year. And that was with the money games, fans in attendance, etc. I gotta believe it would be a monumental task this year. Especially with the country careening towards more lockdowns (ie less likely for ticket sales at bowls too). Let's just go win the Mac and get a prime bowl spot then we don't have to worry about it.

When Kent wins on Tuesday it will be just the second time this millennium that they defended the wagon wheel. The last time was 2010-2012 before that it was 87-88.

However, I think the price tag of $99 is a bit steep, I’ve seen pro sports teams charge less and our season tickets could be bought for less than half of that. I think with that price they’ll hardly get anybody buying them and it will look sillier with just a few in the empty stadium than if they charged a more reasonable price which would lead to far more cutouts and ultimately raise more money. Just my humble opinion, but again, nice idea and I do hope they’ll raise some money.

+1. I think I saw BGSU was charging $45.

Plus GA Season tickets are $45. So you are telling me it costs 2x as much to be there virtually? Dumb
Did they actually sell any of those stadium photo cutouts? Watching the game and didn’t see any.

RE: 2020 Kent State Football Season
I'm certainly excited about how we've looked so far, but our 3 opponents are combined 0-9. The preseason's over and we did what we needed. This week the real games start. This UB game almost feels like a play-in game for the MAC championship game.
