KENT STATE RUMORS & GOSSIP

Virginia's win over Kent State proved to be anticlimactic

News came out earlier last week that the color commentator for the internetz broadcast of the Kent State game would be none other than Al Groh himself.  Not just a few UVA fans were hoping he'd say something that'd sound a lot like the same guy who read the man-in-the-glass poem as his public farewell to the program.  Some might also have been hoping for some better insight...

PHOTO: Virginia shows off Mad Men era helmet

Virginia will be going retro this weekend when the surprisingly tough Cavaliers take on Kent State. The helmets, as seen below, are a nod back to the Virginia football program in the mid-1960s through the mid-1970s. This is not the first time Virginia has brought back this design though. Virginia wore a similarly retro-themed helmet in a 2012 game against Louisiana Tech. @UVa_Football...

What Do You Want To See On Saturday? Kent State

Here we go again. Last week’s disappointing loss is behind most of us. Kent State should be the perfect elixir for what allegedly ails the Buckeyes. I say allegedly because OSU has a rebuilt O-line, a QB who wasn’t supposed to play much yet and some new things on defense so it’s going to take time. That said, here is what I am anticipating: A win: I usually list this last...
