Watched some of the game on tv, was impressed with the amount and type of seating until I saw the curtains behind the one basket. Ruined the good impressions I had. What were they thinking?

Geez people, give these kids a chance!  North Dakota State is in a different universe then we are right now!  Don't compare our recruiting cla$$es to them right now!  Let them grow and see what we have!  Be thankful we still have a football team the way the crowds and population have dwindled!  With that said I don't like losing to the Indiana States, Western Illinois and South and North Dakota's of the world!  If we would have won those games, the conversation would be a whole lot different as we would have 5-5 or 6-4 record!  Like indicated above, we have to win to get better players, but don't judge these kids on previous results!  It is not fair to them!

I agree

This is potentially very good news for us. I doubt that anybody wants to play more than 8 league games. So if the MVFC expanded to 12, how would you fairly decide which 8 teams a school played in a given year?  The only feasible way is by forming divisions. Six schools on each side of the Mississippi.

YSU, Indiana State, Illinois State, Western Illinois, Southern Illinois, Murray State

NDSU, SDSU, South Dakota, North Dakota, Northern Iowa, Missouri State

Each year you play the 5 teams from your own division and then 3 from the other.  Rotate the 3 after a 2-year cycle.

For reasons of geography and rivalries, the Dakota schools always play each other.  Likewise, the Illinois schools and Indiana State always play.  Murray would just be happy to be in a much better basketball conference.  YSU obviously would be pleased.

The two losers, UNI and Missouri State.  Who cares.

Makes sense and would be good for YSU. Love your last line, I agree

So according to WKBN per the league office, the Wright St game has been ruled a forfeit win for YSU and the Northern Kentucky game has been ruled a no contest.

Both were due to covid, why the different rulings?

This weeks women's games at Wright State and Northern Kentucky are cancelled. Covid-19 at both schools.

Big edge in 3 pointers and rebounds but the turnovers kept it close. Bottom line is they got the job done.

In the first half the tv did a little talk about Eric W. being the O line coach for Kentucky. Seems he is doing well and he looked happy!

Hey they have IA play-off now, so do you think anyone is going to care about the I-AA play-off?

The sports world has never cared about 1-AA, D 2 or D3, just the way it is and always will be. Why do you think so many schools that had a name in 1-AA could not wait to move up knowing that they would never be in another play-off game. They are happy just to be 1A and play in some Toilet Bowl every couple of years,

Guessing that most fans of 1-AA schools could not tell you who won the play-offs any given year, just no interest.

From the Vindy.

A total of 20 high school recruits and four transfers signed with Youngstown State. Of those, 16 are from Ohio and four are from Pennsylvania.

“It was the first opportunity for us to have them on campus to get evaluated in our camps,” Phillips said. “It was a chance for us to have them unofficially on our campus, for us to get into their schools, watch them play football, get into their homes. To build that relationship, it gets me a little excited.”

In Phillips’ first cycle, in-person recruiting activities were paused due to the COVID-19 pandemic, leaving coaches to utilize other means to attract talent, including Zoom, phone calls and film. The last time he was able to recruit in person, in fact, he was with Cincinnati as an a$$istant.

Of YSU’s newest additions, six are defensive backs, four are linebackers, four are offensive linemen, three are defensive linemen, three are tight ends, two are quarterbacks, and there’s one tailback and one wide receiver in the group.

In addition, two Valley natives will join YSU’s ranks, as Springfield’s Beau Brungard and South Range’s Dylan Dominguez signed. Phillips said Brungard will compete at quarterback, while Dominguez is listed as a DB.

Of Brungard, Phillips said, “We brought Beau into our camps a couple times this summer, and really evaluated and a$$essed his throwing, his movement. He does have the “it” factor; I think he’s a winner. He shows it in how he plays each and every sport, he shows it when he’s walking down the hallway.”

He added of Dominguez, who worked out at tailback at YSU camps as well, “Dylan came to two camps, worked out as a running back, worked out as a defensive back, was evaluated. You know, you do the analytics, you do the testing. We felt that he’s just a good football player that comes from a good football program and has won a lot of games, so that’s what we’re looking for. That’s the formula.”

In the trenches, there was a clear emphasis on size. Along the defensive front, Michael Boyd Jr. checks in at 6-foot-3, 280 pounds; Nehemiah Dukes is 6-foot-2, 270 pounds; and Tico Jones, a 2-star prospect according to 247 Sports, is 6-foot-3, 255 pounds.

Meanwhile, on offense, Van Keen, a product of Stow High School who Phillips said will join the team early on Jan. 10, is 6-3, 305; Shane Keenan is 6-5, 275; Easton Korody is 6-foot-4, 280 pounds; and Desmeal Leigh is 6-foot-7, 260 pounds.

“What did we look for? We know in this league we got to get bigger, we got to get stronger,” Phillips said.

Jones is one of a few prospects rated by 247 Sports. Tailback Cephus Harris III is a 3-star prospect according to the service, while receiver Jack Kenneally, who stands at 6-6, 210 pounds, is a 2-star and linebacker Nathanael Sulka, of Chardon, is a 3-star recruit. Tight end Cole Sechrest, at 6-4, 220 pounds, is a three-star according to 247.

From the portal, YSU added two players from Independence Community College, the JUCO featured on the Netflix show “Last Chance U.” Those two are defensive back Ezekiel Blake (Soph., 6-foot-3, 185 pounds) and tight end Nate Damron, a native of Elyria (Jr., 6-foot-4, 240).

The Penguins also added linebacker Keon Freeman (Jr., 6-0, 230), a Whitehall native who played at the University of Charleston (WV), and defensive back Andrew Hardin (Jr., 6-2, 200), a Woodbridge, Va., native who last played at Monroe.

Phillips also noted the team is anticipating one more signing today, and hinted there are a few spots he’d still like to fill.

“Maybe another receiver, a mid-year receiver, I’d take from Santa, and you know, maybe two more offensive linemen that we can continue to make competitive, make our guys up front (be competitive). If Santa brings me those three things, it’ll be a great new year.”

Looks like 8 of the 12 schools in the mac will be playing in bowl games this year. Does the school get the money or do they share with  the league? Is it enough money to off-set their money woes?

A bunch of old 1_aa schools made a bowl, doubt the money would make a huge difference for YSU budget if they moved up/
