I suspect Coach Pelini is a Manchurian candidate tasked with insuring that Cardinal Mooney is the best football program in Youngstown!

Looking ahead to the 2020 season the non conference schedule will be much more difficult. We could very easily be 1-3 heading into conference play only to open up against N.D.S.U and S.D.S.U. on the road. The rest of the M.V.F.V. is very young and talented and we are know where close to being competitive with these teams. The excuse that we are bad because we pay our coaches slightly less then some of the  other F.C.S. programs do is just laughable. Bo has had every opportunity to assemble his staff and recruit his own players. It's obvious this team has regressed since losing the remaining Wolford recruits and coaching staff. When players do not respect a coaching staff and simply quit it's a major problem. Probably will not happen, but Bo should do the right thing and resign following the conclusion of this season

Let's be real. After an extension in the offseason do we really think Bo is leaving? He's enjoying living in his hometown where his kids can go to Mooney and all his Mooney buddies are around and he doesn't have to deal with big media scrutiny like he did at Nebraska. Who gives a sh*t how well the program is doing....

He can be around his Mooney Buddies without coaching YSU.

Ysu is currently facing severe budget problems. They will not be able to afford to buy out his contract. As a matter of fact, they need to more butts in the seats. Unfortunately , with the present state of the football program, I do not see that being possible.

If u cant field a competitove team and u are having budget issues YSU needs to play another FBS game.  No playoffs next either. Buy out the non-conference home games if somethg comes along in the next few years.  What choice is there?

Goodnews, you are going to be a prophet!  Faced with dwindling revenues and a revolt of season ticket holders, Strollo might well schedule two money games.  We can become the FCS equivalent of Kent that knows they have no fans and takes every guaranteed game they can get their hands on.

Of course there is a second option.  Are you listening, Jim?  Fire half the athletic administrators and use that money in the next few years to buy out Pelini's contract.  Once that obligation is fulfilled, take that extra money and pay the new football coaching staff properly so that this nightmare can never occur again.

Everyone needs to accept that the BIGGEST part of coaching college football is recruiting both players and coaches.  Just cause u can recruit doesnt mean u can coach and vice versa.  I heard an interview with Urban Meyer (not a fan of him or OSU) but he said u have to motivate kids to play this game even at OSU.  He said the game is so fast and physical that not everyone is wired to play and he understands that.  The take away is even at OSU u have to motivate so who do u thk is doing that at YSU?  We have a roster full of players and coaches that clearly arent right for YSU, for each other and for the MVFC.  U have to ask who's fault that is?

If it keeps going like this, there will be no butts in the seats and that is not good for the budget.

No money game this year and basically not one next year, so I do not see having two money games as a doable thing. Although it would allow us to buy out Bo.

Seems we should have put more stock into the fact that Nebraska was willing to pay that much money to get rid of Bo.

How tight can money be if we are adding sports?

Yea there probably is some fat that could be trimmed in the AD Dept as is true with most schools.

 With that said I can see where the powers to be would take a chance on Bo, big-time name, seemingly great resume, yadda yadda yadda, now the inevitable BUT.  Disappointed that the folks in charge did not or could not see the direction of the program and gave an extension.

Sometimes when you mess up the best thing to do is suck it up, fix it and move on.

I feel bad for the seniors, they will be looking at empty seats for their last home game.
