Most football coaches leave their previous teams high and dry when they escape to a "better" job after a successful regular season. Butch Jones, Dave Doeren, and Bret Bielema are just some of the most recent examples of cashing in on a successful regular season only to jump ship before the bowl game.
New Purdue coach Darrell Hazell is different, as he has the integrity to stick around and coach Kent State in the first bowl game for the Golden Flashes in 40 years. Kent State takes on a pretty good Arkansas State tonight in the GoDaddy.com Bowl.
Consider this the Open Thread to discuss coach Hazell as he completes his obligation to Kent State before coming to West Lafayette. Dri Archer and Trayion Durham are both 1,000+ rushers for this Kent State team with a powerful running game. They have combined for 33 total touchdowns and almost 2,300 yards from scrimmage.
