In Cleveland, hope dies last

Kent State’s BCS dreams end in double OT loss

2012_12_kent_hazellThe dream died hard for Kent State on Friday night at Ford Field in Detroit.

When Northern Illinois defensive back Demetrius Stone intercepted Spencer Keith’s fourth-down pass in the end zone in double overtime of the MAC Championship game, it was finally over.

No conference title. No BCS bowl game. No national spotlight on a program that had wandered the college football desert for 40 years.

Only the disappointment of seeing your dream end, so very, very close, but just far enough away to exceed your reach.
