When you think of the 10th best recruiting class in the MAC, the teams that come to mind would be Akron, UMass, or Eastern Michigan. You definitely would not think of the conference's runner up. Yes, that's right. According to 247Sports, the Kent State Golden Flashes ranked 10 out of the 13 teams in the MAC in terms of their 2013 recruiting class.
After possibly falling one game short of a BCS bowl game, how could Kent State merely secure the 10th best recruiting class in the whole MAC? An 11-3 season is definitely the opposite of a disappointment, and no team would deny that (except for maybe Nick Saban).
The reason for this is unknown to me. I viewed Kent State as an up and coming MAC program that could possibly match up against larger programs in the future. I, for one, have to admit that I am also disappointed, not only because they have an awesome mascot, the GOLDEN FLASHES, but I was also looking forward to what was coming with the Kent State football program. I mean who doesn't love to watch a fellow MAC team knock off an SEC or Big Ten school, regardless of your favorite team.
After stumbling upon that 247Sports article, I felt that it was necessary to share my thoughts with my fellow MAC lovers. Let me know what you all think of this.
Who do you think will be the most improved team in the MAC in the 2013 season?
