I find it hard to criticize this football team. I'd love to get on the defense for giving up yards and points but if they are on the field for the majority of the game how can I expect them not to tire out. With this offense they can be off the field in three plays. Either three and out or because they scored a touchdown.

I think the only thing that I can criticize is that against A&M the offense couldn't finish drives. But that's even hard to do since they are considered one of the top defenses in the country.

I'm probably going to have to wait until the conference schedule before any real problems can be found.

RE: Flashes picked to win MAC East in football
The thing that annoys me is that our broke @$$ neighbors with a lousy football team have a weekly show on Bally Sports and getting any information on our good team, that pockets more money on money games than their $hitty team does, is like pulling teeth.

Coaches and Athletes are Awesome. Nothing to criticize. They are the best , and backbone of program. Sure we can complain about a play call or question strategy , but overall zero to criticize. They also treat fans and donors exceptionally 110% of the time.

Agree, that Dept monitors the site. Yes things are better with new AD
He has a fresh agenda. However giving time to donors and fans and listening, in my view VERY long way to go. His plate is full in his defense. He was left a lot to clean up. He also disbanded several groups that involved fans and donors and were supposed to provide input

Having said all that …. I will sign off and no longer criticize. I do agree let’s get back to talking teams and student athletes.

Yes, there is a lot that needs to be done to clean up and right the ship, and we all want nothing more than things to improve across the board. So many people that cared so much about KSU and their athletics did their jobs well in spite of how they were compensated and/or treated and are no longer there. “Tradition Never Graduates” seemed to have moved on, hard to get back that passion and/or experience overnight; just look at the ticket fiasco posted last week. How do you not have tickets in the hands of the very few season ticket holders we have long in advance of our first home game? Especially now when so many schools push this out digitally and not have to rely on mail. This AD sat in job interviews and convinced them he was the right guy for the job, certainly he had to convince them with innovative strategies and timelines. Curious what they are and how that’s going. Hoping for the best, time will tell.

Funniest part on ticket fiasco was I had my two season tickets but brought 2 guests who tried to buy GA tickets $20.00 ea. He gave the ticket guy a $50 and they said they could not accept bills larger than $20.00.

Parking passes for season ticket holders still at the printer. ( news had a story about paper shortages). Hopefully we get passes before the Nov Wed. games when parking will be an issue with huge crowds
