What is the injury status of Malek Green?  If he can not play, it might get ugly real fast.
Malek will be playing

Good post chez,

I think that coach has done a good job but not quite ready for the big time yet. Not sure what he makes since the extension but he needs to be paid as much as his peers.

Let's not fool ourselves...there is plenty of interest in Coach Calhoun from other programs.

When Coach signed his extension, he did so with essentially no salary increase.  That kept him at 10th lowest out of 11 Horizon League Coaches.   IF (that's a BIG IF) the YSU Board of Trustees were to double his pay, it would still only put him in the middle of the pack. Is that enough to keep him - who knows - but I personally hope they at least recognize that we've had him on the cheap this entire time. 

But there's a lot of questions in my mind:

Can the Penguin faithful live in a post-Tressel era where the basketball coach makes $100,000 a year more than the football coach?  Heresy!!!   

Just imagine how the YSU Faculty Union will play this one ahead of this year's contract negotiations.  Does our new President and Board want the heat?

Does Coach have unfinished business at YSU?  Yes. 

Has has he done enough be paid like the other top Horizon League Coaches?  Absolutely.

I hope the YSU Board of Trustees decides Coach is worth keeping around for a little longer.  And if they do, maybe Jerrod will be like Tressel and wait for the "right" job.

Maybe after hard-fought, emotional games Calhoun should be responsible for having both Teams meet at center court, sit in a circle, join hands and lead them in in a chorus of Kum Ba Yah.

Cohill said something to Davis in the shake hand line and that is what started it.    It seems like Cohill lost his composure even after the game.  Calhoun needs to set him straight.   We cannot make same mistakes against NKU
SAHDPanda said it right.  DC plays with emotion (good and bad).  But remember, it was Davis that initiated the physical contact in the post game handshake line. If he doesn't do that, things don't escalate.
Our students were wrong to throw things, no doubt about it, but that's a direct result of Davis' behavior.

I have said all along it was a money issue.  We let one of the best recruiters in the nation go…who had won awards from his peers as an a$$istant.  His name was Wolford.  He made 2 mistakes.  One not putting his foot down in getting a bigger money pool for a$$istants. The other mistake was playing #8 at safety. His teams past the eye test physically.  Till we get more money somehow we will be mediocre. Which makes me feel that the AD failed to find the money or revenue stream for us to complete.
   It is absolutely a money issue.  Checkout this site to explore D-1 Sports and Academic Finances:

If Mayes is not starting then who will run the point ?
Either newcomer Bryce McBride or Cohill will run the point.  Shemar will spell them off the bench.

So who do you think will be the starter?

Not who you want to be the starter but simply who do you think will be the starter.

Mitch Davison getting the start today. He earned it.

Certainly a season with high hopes! A lot of new faces. Will be interesting to see which of the bunch steps up. I imagine Cohil & Covington are the nucleus and the guys you give the ball to when you need a basket.

Coach might consider playing with 3 guards  with Cohil and Mayes @ back court and Covington @ small forward

Only Cohill returns as a starter from last year's team.  The four (4) new guys Rush, Nelson, Green and McBride) will all start.  Rathan-Mayes, Dunn, Hunter, Covington all become bench players.  Owens, Shleton & Irwin will also contibute off the bench.  Watch for true Freshman Lovelace to contribute as well.
