Shut it down. We can all go home. Kent State linebacker Andre Parker just became a star, and not for the right reasons. Actually, it depends how you look at it. Because in our eyes he’s a star, period. A punt grazed a Towson player and Parker grabbed the ball and headed for the end [...]
Kent State dominated Towson in the first half of their season-opening game on Thursday, but that doesn’t mean they displayed an overall mastery of the game of football. Take for instance what occurred in the play seen above. Kent State was punting to Towson, and the ball touched the returner, making it live. Kent State’s Andre Parker recovered the ball at the six-yard line...
OMAHA, Neb. As Kent State kept changing relief pitchers late in Monday's College World Series elimination game in a desperate attempt to find one who'd throw a strike and get a Florida batter out, Jason Bagoly watched nervously from a familiar place in the third base dugout.
