    Anyone traveling to Kent St?

    Anyone been there to a game...experience?

    Tailgating...good/bad?

    Stadium...good/bad? Access?

    Ticket prices...if not going through ISU?

    Seems like good a time as any to win one on the road, history has shown we are not good in these games. Northern Ill, Toledo...struggled at Ohio a few years back.

    Tough spot nonetheless.

    Tickets: $15 chairback, $10 GA

    Stadium holds 25,000. They were dead last in I-A in 2008, averaging 10,639.

    History has also shown that if I show up for a road game we're garunteed to lose, so I wouldn't count on a Kent State win


    Oh we will fight, fight, fight for Iowa State,
    and may her colors ever fly!!!

    Is it just me or does it look like Kent state is practicing on one of the practice fields at the time this satellite photo was taken?

    Re: Anyone traveling to Kent St?

    I haven't been to a game at their stadium, but I live in the area so I've seen it and know people who went to Kent St. They're not very passionate about football, most of the kids that go there would consider themselves Buckeye fans like everyone else in Ohio. I've heard the students usually show up late and leave early b/c they're usually losing late in the game.

    Seeing as I live half an hour away, I'll be there to watch us hopefully break this lame road losing streak. I don't know if people tailgate there, but they do have big parking lots around the stadium. I plan on tailgating if possible or just going to the bars in downtown Kent, they've got some good places to party.

    Re: Anyone traveling to Kent St?

    Ive looked into going, but the drive is pretty long.

    But with the season to come, it might be nice to catch as many winnable games as possible.

    I wouldn't be too hard on yourself--the same can be said for our football team.

    Re: Anyone traveling to Kent St?

    In Phil Steele's guide they break down game by game attendance for every team. They had a game that was somewhere in the 2200 announced attendance area. I also read earlier that they have NEVER sold out a game. Ever.

    Re: Anyone traveling to Kent St?

    I've got a conference the next day in Indianapolis, but I don't think I can go a season without catching at least one game. Hopefully I'll be bringing a couple friends along, otherwise you might have to sit next to me!
