The will to win is important, but the will to prepare is vital.--Joe Paterno
This season is going to feel so ho-hum after this game. I mean, I'm going to go from a week of reading 400 articles about the SEC to not going over Kent State's roster until Thursday night. I think I'll manage, but this week feels like a bowl game more than anything else.

I like Cory Giger, he's a smart guy, but over the past 3 days he's spent his time tweeting about Evan Roysterbeing slow, fat, and lacking drive to succeed. To top it all off he spent time on his radio show talking about how people shouldn't be bashing Royster. I understand we all feel the need to put in our two cents, but you've got to at least stick to your guns. Or not talk at all, that's cool too.
