Allen Moff reports that due to a lack of impressiveness at the position, Kent State coach Darrell Hazell has decided that backup quarterback David Fisher will share snaps with senior Spencer Keith against Ball State. Said Hazell:
"We're not getting the productivity in the passing game that we need at this time, and we want one of those guys to step up and take over."
It's a definite area of concern: the team has just one passing touchdown, thrown by Fisher in garbage time against Towson in Week 1. They scraped by at Buffalo 23-7 thanks to a terrific ground game but Keith was a mere 6-for-15 passing in that game. Fisher was slightly better, going 7-for-13 but also threw an interception.
