Nice victory. Where was this kind of play all year? Let's finish strong next week. Seems like the defense is playing really well as of late


I really think that the coaching changes (OC and DC) as well as the issues with the other defensive coach, and all of the injuries with a new QB really effd us up.  We are now settled in and playing more kids.  Finally playing loser to potential

  The offensive scheme and play calling is broken.  McCaster only 8 carries?   Mays carrying the ball 24 times, he would never make it through a season.  At the end of the half is on the coaches, Mays has to be told over and over, if receiver open in end zone take a shot, if not, throw it away and kick the field goal.  Even if it is a first down at the 2 or 3 yard line, YSU had no timeouts.  Still would have to spike for field goal.  Brian Crist is lost as the coordinator.


OL can't block.  They ran the QB to get an extra hat on them, especially with the RPO.  We couldn't block their DL and that was a big factor in the game.  I thought the game plan was solid.  However, we had too many penalties and two major mistakes by the Qb.

1 the slide where he could have gotten the first down and didn't.  We hung hunter out to dry for the same thing.  May's made a big mistake there nobody is saying anything.
2 the worst mistake in the game, spiking the ball on 4th down.
3 dropped pass by the receiver that was wide open (not the QBs fault)
Those mistakes costs us points and ultimately the game.  Surprisingly they matched up well with them.

I watch a lot of football and know what I saw.  Anyone disagree?

Call it what you want.  The OL didn't get the job done against NDSU, but out one's matched up with NDSU and when they decide to play, they can be outstanding.  If the OL was better we would have scored on many of those drives.  Now I am pissed that the team doesn't have the internal leadership to win.  Sad, especially when you can play with the best.

There are issues in the locker room.  The reason we are not performing to standards

I said this October 6th.  I am bringing this back up again.  Savon Smith said it all in the post game presser vs Indiana State

Bo has good relationships with his players.  Not so much with administrators. 

His problem is that he hired rookie coaches because we don't pay "Jack Squat" to the staff.  You get what you pay for.  We are  getting what we deserve when it comes to coaching salaries
 Sorry, but had to say it.
Power, these are the same salaries that coached us to a national championship game just a few years ago. They are right in the middle of the national average and slightly higher then North Dakota State and South Dakota state and the rest of the Missouri. That was part of the reason why Nic McKissic Luke joined the staff


I am not sure you are correct.  We are paying only 60-70k for assistants a d Bo gave up some of his salary so he could pay his coordinators more (my understanding).  You could be a truck driver and make more than the assistant coaches so why would anyone want to do it?

If you do not win and get the support of boosters, alumni and the general public revenue will be down.  This is not good for the athletic budget.  When you let men's basketball and football become below average you are going to have money issues.  Good results in basketball and football is also good PR for the university.   

we should have .over up  into the AAC if the MAC didnt want  yo.

Hey Power,

Any update on the punter?


I don't know the reason and I'm not going to ask.  I joined the game late.  He may have been taking too much time and there may have been concerns with protecting him.  He also did shank a punt.  The wind was a real problem during the game so maybe they thought Kennedy could get the punt off faster or has a stronger leg (I don't think Kennedy has a stronger leg).

I don't know and I am sick of watching the low information press conferences.

We have more coaching problems than we have personnel problems as far as I am concerned.  We are missing several key people that had season ending injuries in fall camp and now we are breaking in new kids with inexperienced coaches (one of which was the worst defensive back in the history of YSU football).

I will state, in fairness to Heacock, that Tressel left the cupboard bare  when he took the best coaches and left Klacik and such.  Coaching is a fraternity a.d Heacock had a hard time getting the deadweight to move on.

Heacock was the one who screwed this program the most. Was given the keys to a Mercedes and turned it into a junker.

Because he hated recruiting

Who would we get that is better? It seems like our coaching jobs are all about getting successful college football coaches native to the Youngstown area, to donate their time to our program as a community service/charity donation. We simply don't pay well enough to get the best.  If Bo could pay he could get better coaches.  Who can do better?

We really need to move up a division.  We've got the facilities and number of sports to do it.  We need a new stadium and the budget of a true D1 school.  Otherwise we should drop down tonD2.
