RE: Kent State vs. Akron -MAC Final
Finish at the rim, play with muscle and limit Akron to one shot possessions. To me, those are three ingredients most needed this evening.

RE: Kent State vs. Akron -MAC Final
So the league handed down the suspension? Where is their call and not the schools to handle? The video was dumb, they said some bad words and called out some opponents they don’t like, big deal. It is an intense rivalry and like stated above, thank goodness they didn’t have phones and social media on par with today’s back when we were in school. Also, it was posted to Snapchat which only goes out to your friends and then goes away, so one of your “friends” screen grabs it and it ends up being put out by the Akron side and calling them out? And funny that the Akron folks are responding with just as vulgar comments. Seems few people seem to have seen the video, but of course now their interest is piqued and they searched for it. After watching, most think the discipline is ridiculous. Anyway, sure will be nice to go out and spank them tonight at less than 100% and no true competitor wants to take a W from someone at less than 100%.

Was it dumb to post it? Sure, but can we take a second to look around the country right now. How many "let's go Brandon" signs, t-shirts, and bumper stickers do you see on a daily basis? If the "adults" of this country can say f the President and not be punished why are we punishing 18-22 year olds for saying the same thing.

RE: Kent State vs. Akron -MAC Final
I dont see the point is the suspension? Is it a good look? No. But it's some cuss words on a social media platform. No coach or player says that word during that game? It's the championship and the MAC wants to handicap the hotest team?

Responses to the suspensions are overwhelmingly calling the discipline a joke.

Didn't I say I was nervous about this game? Damn Toledo for missing 14 free throws.
Sorry. Can I say damn?

In case anyone was curious I counted 4 seconds of Jacobs in that video. 4 seconds could cost us a championship.

I wish they wouldn’t do it and I’d hate them if they were the other team but we can’t do much about. After 71 years like a lot of you we’ve seen this before and it can’t be used to predict anything. As for middle school kids if Kent didn’t do it they would find other teams that would on tik tok. They don’t watch Howdy Doody and Mr. Kangaroo any more.

I used to smoke cigarettes when watching Captain Kangaroo.

RE: Kent State vs. Akron -MAC Final
The MAC probably didn't like the way Kent ended the game at Akron. This was just what they needed to throw a dagger.
If Akron wins tonight they will have the easiest path through the tournament in history. Last night Toledo gave them the game. Now this. If we don't win, the most mediocre team in the conference will represent us. Hopefully, that won't be the case.
BTW, has anyone ever heard an anti-fight song? Most B1G school's marching bands have them. Where they change the words of the opponents' fight gone. It gets bad. But a quick Snapchat video in a Kent locker room and our damn conference have to act all righteous.

It wasn't as bad as two elected female Representatives acting like children during the State of the Union Address. Boorish behavior is increasing all over. I don't get the suspensions. That's too harsh.

RE: Kent State vs. Akron -MAC Final
I was in KSU marching band and can sing an off-color version of every MAC team's fight song.
Band director used to tell us no off-color cheers. That's where the mauve, chartreuse, magenta chants came from.

Well, they used the clip of Carry running to the Akron section waiving bye in one of their MAC videos they played on the scoreboard during a timeout last night... So mixed messaging at best.

I bet they didn't have the video of Akron's students throwing ice at Carry or he sound bites, "Sincere's a pu..."

Here's the thing, we beat OU... That's it. Why so excited? Why is Sendy not grabbing them by the facemask and telling them to shut up. We didn't even win the regular season. The punishment was overkill and I don't agree, but the staff needed to get these guys to focus-up. This is three games in three days. You can't screw around like this. Not to mention I'm still waiting for the big let-down of the 15 game streak. (Like the Indians' win streak years ago.)

Let this be a painful reminder to us all as well as our children:

The internet is not written in pencil. It’s written in ink.

Before you post something, ask yourself if you’d want your grandmother to see/read it. If not, don’t post it.

This Johnson kid creating the video is the kid that was told at a shoot around to run or go home and he went home. Someone let him back and now that could play a role in costing us a championship. So In 3 of last 4 years we’ve had assault at a bar, Covid, our best player assaults another player and now this video. I love my flashes but man this is getting old.

Ironically the only fans that probably realize that are Kent and Akron fans.
Even the MAC person that picked it out probably was unaware of it.
