Future Football Schedules
Does anyone have any idea of the style for scheduling with the new AD? After 2022 (barring changes), he can mostly begin to form his own schedules:

2022
09/03 - at Washington
09/10 - at Oklahoma
09/24 - at Georgia

2023
09/09 - at Arkansas

2024
09/21 - at Penn State

RE: Future Football Schedules
For all the down falls Nielson had the one thing he was good at was milking the most money out of those games. Kent consistently got more than other schools playing the same teams.
With that said I hope we break away from the three money games. I'd love to see a rotating schedule every other year. One year go two money games, one winnable fbs game, and a fcs game. The next year one money game, two winnable fbs games, and a fcs game. Let's setup for more winning seasons.

RE: Future Football Schedules
Saw we have LIU scheduled for the upcoming season as well. Never heard of them, but between the bodybag games of Washington, Oklahoma and National Champion Georgia we get a slight breather against an FCS program. Looked them up and saw a familiar look; if we go with our newfound UCLA look it could get confusing out there.

LIU was a DII school as recently as 2018 in Football. LIU has 2 campuses ,
One in Brooklyn , one on Long Island known as CW Post. They played
Football (DII). Brooklyn did not. Then LIU decided to combine the Athletics of the two campuses, became FCS. NCAA allowed this without the usual waiting period. Last year they played WVU and Miami , Ohio .
Lost badly to both and finished 2-8. 2022 besides KSU they play at Toledo .
Stadium seats 6000.
Summary: Glorified DII school looking for paydays. Given our schedule next year we are entitled to this cupcake.

Team gets to play on the west coast, middle of America and the east coast. They might hit the trifecta next year, #1 SOS, #1 in payouts, and #1 in most miles traveled OOC. If they play a bowl in Arizona or New Mexico they would play a game in all four contiguous time zones!

This is true. My fandom is soured. One game like that was once the idea. Fine.

But 3 straight. Ugh. I see what you mean but you better protect your assSets.

9th oldest D1 Basketball facility. If you take out Ivy League , I think

RE: Future Football Schedules
Strough Center was $8m. That was several years ago. I'm sure a new basketball arena would probably cost closer to 15 given construction costs. not to mention that if we want it in the same location we'd need to tear down the current MACC, plus probably Annex, and some of the Student Center. Of course we'd still have Kent State's age-old problem: more parking spaces. Revenue for a new basketball arena is going to come from somewhere other than football pay days. I guess keep playing Powerball.

Why not just go ahead and play FOUR money games? Reductio ad absurdum.

Plans we were presented during President Warrens reign were $15-$30 million to redo MAC depending on bells and whistles. Another idea that was floated was to build across Summit street and build a garage behind it. MAC center should not be demolished , many viable uses .

Problem with Stroh center is only 4200 seats.
BG (16900 )is smaller than Kent (24000) and Kent needs min 6000 seats for graduation, concerts , etc.
I’m now convinced unless one of us wins Powerball I won’t live to see anything but patches and repairs at MAC Center. No one in Athletics has the ability to secure that major donation. Hell, they can’t keep the small donors happy.

RE: Future Football Schedules
To do it and do it right will cost substantially more than $8 mil. James Madison opened a new arena (8500 seats) with parking deck (1500 spaces) and was supposed to be ~$111 mil but ended up costing $140 mil. Granted you don’t need 8500 seats, but the cost will still be far more than KSU will find without a humongous donation from somebody.

RE: Future Football Schedules
I don't know the full layout of the MACC if there is a basement or not. But I would love to have the court and stands lowered. That way there are only 4 entrances instead of the confusing steps. It would eliminate the annoyance of the support beams blocking views. Make it way easier for ushers to help people to their seats. Concessions would be easier to access. The upper and lower levels would feel more connected. This would clearly cost a lot of money but would save the arena.

Plans we were shown , had all seats loading from the top down. Meaning court side seating all the way around you entered from above. The upper and lower stands essentially became one. Gymnastics end of MAC had a concourse to close the loop .
Glassed in area at the other end was to be opened and sold as loges.
When no events were held these “loges” would serve a secondary purpose.
As I recall “offices”
Lowering floor was not part of plan. Building does have a basement but it does not extend fully under court. Weight rooms and other maintenance areas once existed . I haven’t been in that area in many years.
I have brochure still I think.

RE: Future Football Schedules
I remember in the past talking about a dedicated practice facility for men bball. The only way I see that happening is building a second arena. Not sure where on campus or how. Across Summit seems good, but that borders private property. Not sure how that would go with community relations.
We could demolish Michael Swartz. I would not mind seeing that place dozed.

There is a dedicated practice facility for Men's and Women's BBall and Volleyball. It is in the old annex and has been in use for 2 years now.
