    Kenny, in Monday’s intro for the “Drennan Live” you mentioned that it was a great day for NE Ohio sports fans because of the win by the Browns and the “big win” (paraphrase) by Ohio State over Kent State. You forgot one thing: Kent State is IN ne Ohio, just 35 minutes from of Cleveland. Now I’m no fool and I know that the vast majority of the fans here are Ohio State fans because they are the power conference team in Ohio, but you should at least mention the that Kent is our vicinity. Also, this win in shows nothing. Kent was reeling from two close losses at home and a number of other issues. They lost two talented running backs because of dismissal from the team, their 1st team running back is hurt, and most importantly they lost their friend, comrade, and starting center in a tragic event just one week prior to the season opening game and did not practice. Add in an inept coach (from an alumna’s viewpoint) and you have a recipe for disaster. I realise that without all this baggage Kent might have scored one or two touchdowns at most. For you and other OSU fans to revel in this win is absurd, to say the least. The KSU players worked their asses off just to suffer a humiliating defeat. Seeing the revelry upon their defeat surrounding them is tantamount to rubbing salt in the their wounds. There are two sides to every story.
