I wrote a year ago that Kent State's return to Ames would be a yardstick for the program.

By John and Eric's call, Kent's offense has nice weapons that ISU struggled to control.

The good news is that the offense has grown and matured, and has broken out of the Red Zone doldrums it had in '07. The opportunistic scores are a refreshing change.

Time will tell is the scheme to control the scrambling QB resulted in the soft run D, or if the run defense really is that lousy. I suspect the folks in Iowa City will have no qualms about handing the ball off to find out.

The good news is that ISU is 2-0 with more winable games on the horizon. Now we learn if they can win in their new white jerseys.

I'm sure there will be something to write about this week.
