YSU Penguin Athletics / Re: Bad play calling
« on: October 13, 2018, 07:33:04 PM »
It is all in style of ball. We cannot run around and be another Delaware (buying a new QB every year).  Bo came from Nebraska, his position-level assistants were tops ...let alone coaches and coordinators. When he came here, he had similar in coach Carl and coach Shane, but at our level we cannot afford much else. Now he does not have even this. You can be mediocre at the top, but your best has to be on the practice field every day and still able to design game-plans. We simply do not have this. If the head coach is your best coach are going nowhere. Right now Bo is our best coach and not by design ...rather attrition.

Some valid points

I was unable to attend the game yesterday, for medical reasons. I payed for ESPN+ and got Jim Campbell and a color man. Jim Cambell has never changed. This color guy needs to settle down and he can be a good commentator. I also always try to listen to Bob Hannon. It was as if the two sets of announcers were watching two different games. Campbell was treating it like the "laugher" that it was, while Hannon (and especially Muranski) were raving. I mean we only had 2 rushing 1st-downs in the entire first half. We did not even score a TD until 4:36 left in the game. It was clear that Campbell was shocked at our lack of performance, then to listen to WKBN (especially Muranski) you would think we just knocked off NDSU.

 Still YSU can do better than Campbell as a play-by-play man. I remember when WKBN brought in Jim Campbell to try and replace Don Gardner ...just a little too meek for the roll. Great sports knowledge though.

I am surprised that you are surprised by Hannon and Ed, they are being paid to announce the game and in a favorable light for YSU. Seem to recall the Rubber band man lost his job for not doing that.

Played a good 4th qtr, did what they had to do to get a win. Turned out to be a nice evening for a game.

  Several excellent posts.   As for firing Pelini, if we go 3-8,4-7 it should be a consideration.  However, Strollo is terrified of Bo, and so is everyone in the athletic department, they don't have the you know what to make that happen.

Why would they be terrified of Bo?

This is the mess that Bo wanted/created with his good ole Mooney/Youngstown connections.

why would Bo want this mess? The football program is a reflection of Bo and his ability. You are saying that it is his desire to look bad. ?

Well that should make some people on the board happy, maybe.

Samford brings back some memories, great playoff game but the coldest I have ever been at a YSU game.

I get a kick out if how the local broadcasters and post game commenters rant and rave about beating what amounts a Division !!! team.  Let's talk about how improved we are after we beat someone of significance.

It's called being positive.

Not sure why a YSU fan would be interested in reading something to remind them of the last game, it happened , it's over move on.

Some of you predicted 8 wins! Lol.

When I am wrong I admit it, 8 wins is not going to happen.

YSU Penguin Athletics / Re: When are we going to make a FG?
« on: September 02, 2018, 05:37:02 PM »
Championship teams make those field goals. My biggest complaint was the FG we did not even attempt, yea it was 4th and short but when you are that close you take the points.

You never know how different the game would have played out but I would have loved to have those 3 points on the board just to see.

Yesterday was easily my most unpleasant game day experience in over 45 years of watching YSU games and that includes the time I had my car broken into at Rayen Stadium.

Had to move to the West Side, chair back seats were nice except no room for the knees. Throw in a bunch of drinkers, smokers and unemployed coaches offering their advice. And oh yea the weather was a pain.

Now the game, players looked unprepared, uninspired and undisciplined.  No doubt that we were out coached big time. Bo has been here long enough, it is his team, his staff and his program. Maybe The Huskers knew something we are just figuring out.

Is the season over, of course not. Pretty sure we will start out 0-2 so the third game will tell me something. Let's see how the players and coaches react then we will know how the season will go.

This was the worst game I ever watched

I thought that last years game against Ill St was bad, but this was way worse.


 Youngstown is the only town I have even been in where people look for excuses not to attend games and then justification for why they did not. .............. Heck even then, I am sure that some of the die-hard desperate will find an excuse not to go.

Sunshine beginning at 8a, beer, food, a fly-over (so I have heard) and a mystery YSU team playing tomorrow. So show up and see if you like them. Go Guins!!

Good points AA.

Well it will be tighter than usual, as they are not placing the band or student section in portable bleachers, as they should. We will be warmer than in recent years with tha added body heat :)

Where would you put portable bleachers ????

Band and student section should ALWAYS be on the home side.

Your right they probably should be on the West side but I get a lot of laughs watching the students taunt the visiting team during the game.
