KSU drops rain-soaked home opener to Louisiana-Lafayette, 20-12

Darrell Hazell may very well turn around the Golden Flashes at some future date.

For now, the Hazell era at Kent State looks a whole lot like every other era during the last at least the last two decades of losing at Dix Stadium.

Pick a coaching name from the past. From Hazell’s predecessor, Doug Martin, to Dean Pees to Jim Corrigall to Pete Cordelli and ____ Crum.

They all suffered through the same humiliation Hazell experienced on Saturday during a weather-delayed 20-12 loss to Louisiana Lafayette in a nightmare of a home debut at Dix Stadium.
