Each week when I write this post (maybe "if" is more appropriate than "when"), I do my best to find some interesting nuggets for you all to read.  This week, with the Kent State Golden Flashes coming to town, there's just... not a ton out there.  It was a battle, let me tell you.

Also, there's some angst around these parts.  That's ok.  Well, it's not ok.  But it's ok that it's not ok.  Here's a shredder from the kings of being not ok.

I'm sure a lot of you just skipped right over this video. Don't! This guy can play guitar.

The Kent State Nugz

We've noted April Goss and how she's only the second woman to ever record a point in major college football.  It's a cool story, and the best part of it might be how her teammates reacted to her making that kick.

Kent State senior April Goss added her name to the college football history books Saturday, and fortunately it's not written alone.

April Goss doesn’t remember the kick itself.

Remember when I said there wasn't much out there?  This is where we really start running into issues.

Antwan Dixon scored a TD, making for some proud parents.
