I thought that Murray State just inked a deal with the Horizon League?

It is just clear to me that Phillips is going the route of changing the team immediately and letting them struggle and eventually work into the system. Which is fine if you have 3-4 years to wait. Wolford tried it and he just never made it in time to keep his job. (although he handicapped himself with a lousy DC initially) Maybe I am just impatient and/or want a coach we cannot afford. Both of these are probably true to a degree.

It is too early to kill Phillips entirely.  This is obviously a less than ideal situation to start rebooting a college program.

That said----the school would do well to not make being from NE Ohio the A#1 top priority in hiring decisions.  I mean, the second choice was a high school coach, right?  Was Super Fan not available? he still around? If so, has to be pretty old

yes superfan tailgates next to us and he is there both games this year.

In terms of Strollo. Why does everyone think we have such a crispy/squeaky program that we can hire anyone we want and the best a their positions? We have things that are set & always going to be set. There is no AD on the planet that will come in here, play the game, (which includes keep his mouth shut), for the dollars we pay Strollo. There is no need to even look. Anyone that does know how to play the game as well as RS is seasoned with paycheck demands beyond well beyond YSU.

As to the game:

1. I hope all of you Crenshaw people see what he is. A player too short to pa$$ at the DI level. I would say that at least half of his pa$$es were tipped, with 6 being either a disaster, or near disaster. WIU played a balanced Montana and only managed 9 first-downs and no offensive TD's. Montana will be middle of the pack in their conference. We needed to do 2 things this past weekend to prevent a total collapse.
A) Go to true Wildcat to get some running yards.
B) get a receiving TE out there so Crenshaw has a bigger target to get some throwing yards.
So what happened? Does anyone else realize we never even crossed the 50 in the entire second half?

2. We show no signs of game planning, let alone adjust. Everyone knew that when this team gave up the TD late in Q2, this team was going to collapse.

3. Let's not keep saying about how good the team we played is, just because we get beat or play close. Last week there was one good player and WIU had maybe 3.

4. Only certain types of coaches can move a team in a different direction (ie: our clear attempt to become Cinci) and still perform with the players you inherited. This staff just does not have that ability. You have to interject players as you get them. In the mean time you are going to play much of the same style as your predecessor .

5. Also if I hear about how young our team is, I am going to get ill. This team had winter practice last year, half of a season against regular opposition in spring, workouts in the summer, fall camp. There is no team in YSU history with as much prep time going into a season. Yes everyone else has just the same, but that just goes to show how ill-prepared we are.

At our level loyalty is all you get. Do you think any team, even a Montana, JMU or an NDSU get attendance due to the ability to see big time college football?  They are the only game. Heck, NDSU is one of only 2 teams in the entire state. Youngstown has 4 power-conference teams within just a few hours ride. OSU sells out because they see it on national TV each week and talk on the news every single day 365. There are 10 times more people that want to see a Buckeyes game than can buy tickets. Now if you can figure out how to do this in Youngstown, we are set. In the mean time, you push Penguin club & organizations that promote group ticket sales. You promote tailgating & pay your campus police.

I think it is better than beating Slippery Rock and a couple of non scholarship schools.  The program has been down a long time.  It will take time.

Nope cannot agree. Play slippery Rock, you play to win & win. Play a good team, you play to not to lose and lose. Play a warm-up and you play your game. Be a warm-up and you bring in a team that will try not to lose at best. You only learn disappointment. Face facts, this is not an upper-half MSU team. It is only the enormous mistake called transfer portal that will keep them in the middle of the Big-10, as opposed to the basement. The portal is just another way for the less-talented to be promoted.

For us, this is not a situation where we need coached-up, we need to recruit at the high-school level. Something Bo could not do. Now we do not have the big name coach or the winning history  to do well in the portal.

So did anyone else notice that they sent "parking" tickets? Does his mean there is no tailgating, or are they just smaller this year?

We need a power back. Right now we have too much lightning, but no thunder.

Season ticket forms came and are already completed with a zero dollars due!! Nice. For all of those that let them keep the money 2-years ago, it looks like they still need to be mailed in.

I personally could care less. Tell me about the money that we are going to make from Nike. It is June. Tickets go on sale, youth camps for a new staff begin next week, record turn-out for the Penguin Club golf tournament, still have a waiting list for loges at the Ice Castle, new facilities. This is what it is all about. Great season's for bowling, baseball, track and more

Too bad we collapsed during the tournament. I do not see an at-large bid

YSU Penguin Athletics / Penguins Reach 30 Wins
« on: May 22, 2021, 11:07:42 AM »
The Youngstown State baseball team has reached 30 wins for just the second time in program history after a 3-2 victory over Milwaukee in the series opener on Friday at Eastwood Field.

Youngstown State won its fifth straight game to improve to 30-21 overall, 22-15 in Horizon League play and 17-3 at Eastwood Field. Milwaukee falls 19-29 overall and 16-21 in league action. The Penguins have reached the 30-win plateau for the first time since going 37-17 in 1995. YSU has also won 17 home games for the second time in program history and for the first time since 1977.

The Penguins scored single runs in the first and fourth innings to take a 2-0 lead before Milwaukee scored once in the fifth to pull within a run. YSU got the run back in the home half of the fifth to take a 3-1 advantage before Milwaukee scored once in the ninth to produce the final margin.

YSU starter Collin Floyd allowed one run on five hits and had seven strikeouts over five innings to earn his ninth victory of the season. With nine wins on the season, Floyd has tied the single-season school record that was set by Joe Herubin in 1989. With his second strikeout of the game in the top of the second inning, Floyd became just the third player in school history to record 100 strikeouts in a season. He is the first Penguin since Phil Klein in 2011 to reach 100 strikeouts in a campaign.

After allowing a leadoff single in the first inning, the senior left-hander retired the next six batters he faced as he retired the side in order in the second. The Akron, Ohio, native recorded a strikeout in each of the five innings he was on the mound, and he had multiple punch outs in two different frames.

Colin Clark allowed one run on three hits and struck out a pair over four innings of relief to earn his first save of the season. The senior southpaw retired the first eight batters he faced as he retired the side in order in the sixth and seventh innings.

Jeff Wehler went 3-for-4 with two runs scored and was a home run shy of the cycle while Blaze Glenn went 2-for-3 with a run scored.

The Penguins jumped out to an early lead with one run on one hit in the bottom of the first inning. Wehler hit a leadoff double, advanced to third on fly out by Phillip Gla$$er and scored on a balk.

YSU pushed its lead to 2-0 with one run on three hits and an error in the home half of the fourth inning. Glenn hit a leadoff single, advanced to second on a walk by Turner Grau and scored on an error following an infield single by Padraig O'Shaughnessy.

Milwaukee cut YSU's lead in half in the top of the fifth when Jack Cavanaugh led off the inning with a solo home run to left field.

The Penguins increased their advantage to 3-1 in the bottom of the fifth when Wehler hit a leadoff triple and scored on a sacrifice fly from Gla$$er.

The Panthers scored the final run of the game in the top of the ninth when Jack Kraus led off the inning with a solo home run to center field.

Milwaukee starter Riley Frey took the loss after allowing three runs on seven hits and striking out four batters over eight innings.

Six different Panthers recorded a hit in the contest as Milwaukee outhit YSU 8-7. Luke Seidel and Cavanaugh each had two hits to pace the Panthers offensively.

The Penguins and Panthers will continue their four-game Horizon League series on Saturday with a doubleheader beginning at 1 p.m. Live audio will be available at
