YSU Penguin Athletics / Re: ndsu coach
« on: January 03, 2024, 01:59:29 PM »
I was reading in the dispatch that the salaries for position coaches is usually based on tenure. Coordinators and up have a salary structure.  At OSU, position coaches go from $300k to $515k

With the transfer portal and NIL expect mass defections from our program and all of FCS,  Coaches will let us develop, cherry-pick and offer more NIL to our top performers.  Unless it’s fixed soon FCS will be a mess and the talent will be used to build depth and help programs that hire new coaches a way to win faster.  Maybe what needs to change is if a BCS school poaches a player then they need to pay a bounty to thst school for developing and then losing them.  I expect our left tackle will be gone after next season for sure. 

So if Phillips thinks he can develop kids to stay not happening anymore.

Good point and if you do develop the talent, that talent is going to leave. Then again we knew this right from the start. To hell with being fair to the players, they are not being fair to us. We recruited them, we own them. They are no longer amateurs. If they are not happy with an education, then why should we care? I think of those kids from Air Force in the armed services bowl. No NIL, no transferring in, no transferring out. You transfer out, you are AWOL and going to prison. If you quit the academy, you are now a private and going to clean plans for the next 4-years.

Crap!! Johnson and Wudke. There goes half our defense.

YSU is about as far from a basketball school as you can get. Basketball does determine most of what a university will do though. Conference affiliation, interest, etc. YSU was only a "player" that year we knocked off Butler twice during one of the years they made the NCAA final. Slocum was the darling of ESPN.

However, with the portal and major changes in college football approaching, basketball will probably become a thing of the past at many schools.

I would be all over Long Beach CC. That conference gets some great players from the LA Catholic schools.  We had that stud from Mater Dei come out of there. He played for Heacock and was 'all everything'  and a pro tryout. Cannot remember his name.

You know, I am somewhat different than most on the board, as I really only like YSU sports. Sure I keep my eyes on the Orioles and occasionally the Tribe, but I would rather go to a YSU baseball game any day of the week. When I lived locally, if I was off, I would shoot over to campus and watch any number of other sports. I lived right around the corner from McCune and saw Penguin softball quite a bit, as I helped coach my little brother's ball team there.

That being said I do not care about the AFC Central/North, even if I check out the Browns game once in a while. Instead I check out the teams in the MVFC and Horizon.  That being said:

1. I may have been too harsh, but even toning it down, I still do not see us in the top-20.
2. Remember that men's basketball (and women's sports in general)  drive conference affiliation. That does not seem to be the case in the very near future does it?

I just looked up the Albany-Villanova game. Villanova had five turnovers; Albany had none.

As others have noted, Villanova is the only CAA team that has the size and strength up front to compete in the MVFC. With James Madison and Delaware now gone, the CAA has become Villanova and the (fill-in the blank) dwarfs.

The CAA joins the Southern Conference, once the home of multiple championship teams Georgia Southern, Marshall, and Appalachian State, as a second rate FCS conference.

As we remain an irrelevant program in the irrelevant FCS.


Could’nt agree more I never understood the fascination of being in the fourth fifth or or six best team in a conference that we don’t fit in with no natural rivalries and very hard to travel. If we were in the CAA, we would be with Villanova like Dakotas, and be a top team every year and make the playoffs a lot easier and with that would come a higher seed and more home games instead of being a middle of pack team as we are now. But Mike was said in his post the FCS will become more irrelevant.   
I don’t see anything positive staying in the conference or wait. Maybe we should hang a banner Youngstown State plays in the toughest conference in FCS football and we made the playoffs three times in 20+ years ha ha ha ha we can put that next to the championship flags don’t get me wrong, I love Youngstown State but when you look at this from the big picture being in his Conference has been nothing but a failure look at this they brought in Murray state, not for football, but do the basketball program. Why aren’t we in? why aren’t we in this conference? I know the answer because we don’t have the money that the schools have for the most part that’s another story but again hey, we played a toughest conference and FCS and congratulations for that and let’s be honest we got a bottom feeder playoff team as a reward we would opened up on the road  against Villanova we have been one and done but again I’m still pro these guys and I understand we’re never gonna leave the conference as long as the AD supports it .  Another thing just because those teams suck. I got to the final four doesn’t matter. It just proves my point due to a conference got them to that point they didn’t have to beat their heads into the wall like we have done year after year hoping praying that we get in.  Go penguins.

So what options do you have?

1. Move to a supposedly easier conference. Well would that not be an embarrassment? Look at how people here attacked WIU? You know that they only moved because they needed a conference that can support all of their sports. They were a power in the MVFC for years. Despite the OVC/Big south conference heading for twice our size, they only one team is going to make the play-off. MVFC had what? 6 teams?

2. Join the MAC? Well then I am no longer anything but a dedicated TV watcher and radio listener, as I do not have the ability to attend weekday games..

3. I mean the 3 bowl games that they have had so far were basically unknown to anyone on TV. Yet they were all above the level of the MAC. Heck, the second place team in the MAC gets a better game than the winner.. They get a Big-10 team. Although this is a record year for the MAC and he number of bowl games.

4. Miami (MAC Champion) brags about coach Martin's 6 national championships in the past 20-years. This is in their program and bio.  Funny, not one of those came from his time with Miami. They were all from Grand Valley State (D-II) and his prior NAIA championship. I mean he has been with Miami for 10+ years, about time they started talking about his accomplishments at Mimi.

5. The head coach of the best team in FCS/I-AA is leaving to be a position coach at a big-10 school..

You know not every MAC game is during the week right?

Kent state only had 1 home game on a Wednesday and so did Akron,

You have to wonder how much of that is fan apathy? A couple years back, it seemed like Buffalo was on every week.

Well, the offenses  have is finally woke up, but the defense is still stink and can’t stop them

13
1. I like to say this was a big, defensive struggle, but quite honestly two of the most inept offenses I’ve ever seen.. I mean North Dakota stayed as bad as they were on defense held the grizzlies to three and out for an entire quarter and a half and we’re only able to put six points on the board two field goals.
2 that announcer is the worst announcer I have heard hidden so long I can’t stand to listen to them. I have to turn it off and take a break. He’s making this into like the greatest game ever played. It is the worst game of the season for both teams.

14
Albany has a great QB, they said he will be POY or Frosh of the year for sure. already won it for the CAA.  Albany stomped Villanova. I think it was 34-3. last night was just Just a bad environment for them

YSU Penguin Athletics / Reid, Dynes Earn Horizon League Weekly Honors
« on: December 14, 2023, 07:34:14 AM »
Indianapolis, Ind. – Youngstown State senior Ziggy Reid has been named the Horizon League Under Armour Player of the Week and freshman Gabe Dynes is the Under Armour Freshman of the Week, the league announced on Monday.

It marks the first Horizon League weekly honor for both Reid and Dynes.

Reid led the Penguins to a 2-0 record last week with a pair of road victories over Mid-American Conference opponents. He averaged 17.5 points and 5.5 rebounds per game and shot 45.8 percent from the field, 46.2 percent from 3-point range and 100 percent from the free-throw line.

Reid led the Penguins with a season-high 25 points with five 3-pointers  in the Penguins 72-68 win at Western Michigan. Against the Broncos he connected on 9-of-17 from the floor and 5-of-11 from 3-point range.

He scored 10 points, all in the second half, in the Penguins 78-72 win over Ohio.

Dynes was an important factor in the Penguin's 2-0 record last week in their road victories over Mid-American Conference opponents.

He averaged 6.0 points per game and shot 75 percent from the field. He also had four rebounds and posted a block in each game.

Dynes also ranks second in the Horizon League in total blocks with 17 and 1.7 blocks per game.

Youngstown State hosts Bethany, Thursday, Dec. 14. Tipoff is set for 6:30 p.m. at Beeghly Center.
