It does have similarities to the fall of the Roman Empire. You know 100,000 in the Roman Coliseum betting on the gladiators. I wonder if they played fantasy chariot races.

I remember the "Kent" period. I didn't like it. If I were a graduate of the University of Akron I would be outraged at how so many people, even students there and graduates, refer to it as "Akron U".

I'm glad we made that distinction too. Kent is a nice high school. Kent State is a fantastic university.

I guess that's better than Hilltop High which is what most everyone else calls them! 03-lmfao

Call them what you will, even Buchtel College (the original name), but they are going to be a tough opponent, as they are only down 2 at Ball State with 2:40 to go. Ball State will be tough, too, as will Toledo who manhandled WMU tonight. The MAC season will be a meatgrinder.

Both have really good centers. We really need to see some improvement from our bigs.

Kent State clearly had the most impressive pre-conference season. But the more i think of it the tougher the MAC season is looking. Of course, it should be tough for everyone, especially on the road. It should be interesting. Very interesting.

RE: Kent State @ Miami
I agree with the above. Watching the games last night was a reminder that the MAC is the still the MAC. Despite what that means to some observers, it’s my kind of conference.

Toledo has something for sure and the Akron vs. Ball State was a slugfest. It’s going to be fun.

I still have a T shirt from the "Kent" era - dumb move!

Akron might have won but the box score indicated they had three players foul out

I have no inside information, but something is off with Jacobs. Guy cannot put the ball in the basket for some reason. We are not playing well again today. It's concerning and will catch up to us at some point (thank goodness it wasn't today).

Jacobs 3/26 from the floor last 3 games. Yikes.

We just aren't playing well. Been several games. No edge. No attitude.

These announcers are cracking me up. "He didn't make a basketball move.". Either they're joking or literally just making stuff up.

Yeah, I know what you mean. It reminds me that term "football move" in the NFL.
