As Kent State and Arkansas get under way in the College World Series, let's pause for a moment to discuss something we actually like. Josh Cribbs, Cleveland Browns kickoff return wizard and Kent State alum, organized a bus trip for the Kent State family, shuttling diehard baseball fans 14 hours to Omaha, Nebraska, the site of the College World Series.
"We didn't think we could get this job done, we thought the task would be too hard but with less than a day the bus filled up," said Cribbs.
Most of the Kent State fans said they would not be going to Omaha, Nebraska if it wasn't for Josh Cribbs coming through with the bus.
"I want to thank Josh for doing this, this is absolutely fantastic for me because I never would have made it," said Akron resident Lou Laurich.
"I think it's really awesome, so classy of him, it's super fun and I'm really excited that he would do something like that," added Michelle Martinez of Valley View.
Morale is high among the travelers as they have already discussed planning another trip for the National Championship should Kent State beat Arkansas. That's a pretty cool thing you did, Mr. Cribbs.
