    "Kent" isn't even a real state

    while googling Kent State to figure out just where it is ... I found out Bradley is in Peoria who woulda thought ?

    I realize I'm putting my man-card on the line by not knowing this, so as self-punishment I'm watching 4th quarter preseason NFL

    Re: "Kent" isn't even a real state

    This is on their website to a link to their 2007 football preview:

    "Expectations are high for the Kent State football team this season. You can preview the team picked to win the MAC East at the Blue and Gold Scrimmage on Thursday, Aug. 16, at 5:30 p.m. at Dix Stadium."

    Whaa?

    Re: "Kent" isn't even a real state

    it was where the Kent State massacre occured, immortalized by the great Neil Young ("four dead in Ohio...")


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Re: "Kent" isn't even a real state

    Are Kent and Kent State big rivals?

    Seriously, how can you have Kent State when there isn't a Kent? How did that get decided?
