    Ken Ralph put out a statement, its on the bears website. Sounded like a raw deal. There was an agreement to host the game.

    Of note from his statement:

    "While it is well known Kent State University had indicated back in May the field was not available after 10:30 am, it is also clear that there is a full executed contract authorizing a 9:00 am start. Once you allow a game to commence, you are obligated to allow the game to continue to conclusion.

      Sounds like poor planning.

        More from BDN article - kent state made a mess:

        The game began at 9 a.m. and both schools had in May been informed that they would need to vacate the field by 10:30 a.m. due to fire marshal regulations, even though the fireworks didn’t start until noon.

        However, Ralph said the written contract for the game had no mention of a 10:30 a.m. stop and that Kent State failed to communicate what steps would be taken if the game was still in progress at that time.

        Kent State Director of Athletics Joel Nielsen on Monday issued a statement with an apology to all involved. “On behalf of the Kent State University athletic department, I would like to apologize to the University of Maine and Temple University for the decisions made surrounding the field hockey contest,” he said. “In hindsight, a different decision should have been made to ultimately ensure the game reached its conclusion. We hold ourselves to a very high standard and, in this situation, we failed.”

        The National Field Hockey Coaches Association issued a statement condemning Kent State’s actions.

                I do think that her heart is in the right place, usually...

                But, she trusted The Turtle, who would whore-out his own daughter to "win" another term, and that was a huge miscalculation on her part.

                      Well, he offered her a deal on health-care, and then he reneged. Collins should have seen that coming a mile away.

                      In the meantime, he's in bed with the very same Chinese "investors" that Trump is feuding with, in his own back-***-ward State of Kentucky.

                      You can look that up.

                          Really, keep that politics crap out of here. There plenty of places to talk about that, doesn't have to pollute this thread also
                          I swear there ain't no heaven but I pray there ain't no hell.
