I hope u guys are right. Letís see how we stack up in the league.

Nope the team they are playing sucks.  Itís not worth my time watching bad basketball being played. Maybe in another 2 years I will watch!

You guys are in the LaLa land of make believe that an FCS championship run is better than moving up.  Ask Boise St how it worked for them. Other than your teams fans nobody cares about FCS football. The Bison could pull it off like Boise did.  I donít see many of the BCS teams wanting to drop down for a championship run!  Itís about exposure not minor football championships.  As for the costs of the football program I think the students are footing most of the bill to pay for football at YSU.   If that was taken away we would be another Butler. 

I havenít watched a game and 2 years and I put it in today.   We look bad.  We canít shoot.  We look like a play ground pick up team.  I donít see one player that is truly a Div 1 starter.  I wonít be watching again!

They have nothing to prove at FCS.  I think they would have to build a new Stadium. 

YSU Penguin Athletics / What is up? Why no announcement on keeping Pelini?

Pelini promised that the depth would get addressed after Wolford. I have attended and watched and traveled to many games since 1990.  We finished what third from the bottom in our conference.  That isnít just coaching.  We had to bring a transfer QB in to start and none of the recruited guys even got any snaps  I just dont see it. Sorry.  This team was one of the weakest teams I witnessed in 28 years.  The Butler game was our wake up call.

We donít have top 10 let alone top 15 talent. Our best player on offense by far was McCaster.  He might be a first team all conference.  Thatís it on offense.  Defense was horrible none of those guys are first teamers maybe The senior LB and Savin Smith might get on the all conference.  We lack Div 1 depth. Whenever the Bison or South Dakota have an injury the next guy up is almost as good. Between Coaching and takent we are what our record is a bottom tier team in the conference.  Donít forget how many games our kicker hurt us and we never recruited to replace him.

PenguinPower i donít think the program is as close to being contender at all.  Football has become offensive and we donít have the horses to do that.  We wasted a year developing a QB. We have Mays but what do we have behind him.  We donít know.  The one year rental QB was plain stupid and pure desperation.  Bo started playing some kids on D but we still got torched that last game. Our special teams are a disaster.  Where was the so called depth that Bo promised us. We have very little speed on both sides of the ball.  You cant fix that with one year of recruiting. We could be embarrassed when we play on ESPN that first game next year.  Name one leader on this team. We need to quit fooling ourselves on this board.  The Butler game was Pearl Harbor wake up call. If we donít wake up there will be another Pearl Harbor moment.  That came exposed everything that was wrong with the team, the program, the culture, and the players admitted to that, from missed practices etc.  I love YSU but If a duck looks like a duck it is a duck.  We stink.  It needs overhauled.

If I was still in Ohio, I would still show up.  But now that I am in Texas I see things a little different.  We had were the toast of 1AA football in the 90ís.  We didnít take advantage of that success.  But we keep using that as a measuring stick. That formula isnt working as attendance, fan interest across all the athletic programs is nominal. We donít have the money to compete in the leagues we are in.  So what would you expect.  We need to be in a league  where we we can compete dollar wise or we can be the big fish like the Bison is.  We gotta quit thinking that the 90ís are going to happen again.  Itís just like the valley waiting for the steel mills to come back and they keep electing the same bozoís that promote it.  We need to give the athletes that we can recruit a chance to win and compete for championships. College sports programs need money to be successful and plenty of it. We are in the lower tier of the money part and guess what our menís sports other than track are consistently have losing records.  We need to change it not hope we get another Tressel.

Shane Montgomery should be available? Do we bring him back.

Are you saying that the Bison are doing illegal stuff.

Incarnate Word made it at 6-4 from the Southland conference, they were a Div 2 school what 5 yrs ago.  Duquesne made it. But we sit home again.

Good coaches recruit, make adjustments in game, and game plan to their talent, and opponent.  YSU staff this year would get an F.  We are soooo behind the eight ball that a few little tweaks wonít be enough.  The line coach should be fired. Stoops should be fired, hell the all need fired. I hit the number on the nose on 4 wins this year.  I as a alum, former penguin club member who will not donate another dime till we completely overhaul the Athletic department, and the Football program.  We are in the Wrong conference, no rivalries to build a fan base.  I can go on and on.  1k in the stands for Senior day is unacceptable.  It needs to be fixed. IT starts at the top and the Athletic Dept. needs a new vision and house needs to cleaned. From marketing and deciding if the conferences we are in are really where we need to be.  If we canít afford good coaches we will NEVER compete at a championship level.  We are out of home town discounts.  You lost me as a diehard yesterday I didnít even watch it live I did holiday stuff. I havenít even watched the tape yet.  If you lost a diehard like me why the hell would anybody else want to be a fan etc.  signed a distressed YSU fan!
