I went to get a few things to tailgate (well beer) and picked up a Register to read the preview of the game tonight. I have not read the Rag in sometime and I guess I wont in the future. Instead of a a preview of the game we get a story on how the new play clock will affect the game. WTF, this could have been wrote about for 3 months but they chose game day to run this story. What is wrong with writing a game preview? They wonder why papers are going broke, readership is down, and they get negative reviews. Give me something to read.

I felt the same way when I went looking to the Rag for some pregame coverage (yes, I should have known better). No analysis, total fluff. The Rag really does earn the beating it takes around here.
Not to interrupt some perfectly good ripping on the Rag--but I believe they did their pregame stuff yesterday. I know, it's weird, but they started doing it a couple of years ago. Maybe because Friday readership is higher (for Saturday games).
Just to be fair, I just noticed that the Register did a quite reasonably decent preview in today's (Saturday) paper for Kent State, so maybe the complaints here last week did some good. Or they were waiting for a weekend game. I dunno. Still, feel free to look again.
I know this will get lost in the post-game posts, but I still had to post it.
