TBDBITL Report: Kent State Recap – Jon Waters Returns

‘Jon Waters Returns’, I’ve been hoping to write those words in the title of an article for almost two months. While Waters did return to Ohio Stadium last weekend, it wasn’t as director of the Ohio State University Marching Band; I still hope to write those three words again at some point for that reason.

Are You Not Entertained? Kent State

Well that was much better. Although I’m sure some folks will still complain despite thrashing Clark Kent State 66-0. Could have been a lot worse. Urbs had to be pleased with this one. I don’t see too much to be disappointed about. A win: We got that. And then some. 250 rushing yards: With 34 to spare. At least 200 passing yards: Had that on the first drive. Well, not really...

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...
