YSU Penguin Athletics / Re: DQ & Naz's debuts
« on: November 10, 2021, 02:13:35 PM »
Thanks for the update.  I'm going to be curious all year to see how these two do.  YSU will miss them terribly.
"miss them terribly"  Boy is that an understatement!  We'd be hands down favorites in the Horizon for our first every NCAA birth!  That being said, nobody did anything wrong here, just the function of the new transfer rules is all.  We'll loos some we really didn't want to lose, but we'll get some we really appreciate as well.  Proof?

At least one MVFC school can spot a mis-hire when they make one!

There was a game, I believe in the early 1980s, later 19070s, at I believe Western MI, that I was listening to on the radio as a kid. We were getting beat badly in the first half, and then there was a huge rally to win. To this day is the most exciting game I’ve ever listened to.

Trivia question: Which current MVFC program is the only one not to have their State’s name included in their University’s name?
Dah NDSU  SDSU ND NIU WIU SIU SD  I don't know, I give up!

We need to play better defense.  Our defense was good in the spring but this fall its seems to have taken a step back.  We can't stop the run or the pa$$.  We have talent on defense but I think the coaching is the problem.    3 man fronts puts no pressure on opposing QBs and allows the running backs to get into the second level.  Also covering receivers with LBs is not working.  Especially against UIW that had fast talented receivers. 

Also we need to open up the offense.  Our QB seems capable so give him a game plan that uses his talent.  #8 is talented but will not last long running the ball 25-30 times a game.
Your a$$essment of needing improved D is right, but Cameron Ward is best I've seen in years, and Big10 just has more talent, so I'm not convinced we are that much worse.  Saturday night will tell.

This will be a tough game.
From here on, they will ALL be tough!  Our only "easy" game was a incredible comeback, 3 point overtime win!

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.
That may have been true, but I'm seeing reports of unsold OSU tickets. 
With five days to go before the Ohio State football home opener against Oregon at Ohio Stadium, the university still has roughly 10,000 tickets available.

Obviously some of this is covid-related, but still, the home opener vs. a credible P5 team.   How much of this is temporary and how much is caused by the overall fans' change in dynamics about attendance, things like cost, time, length of game/amount of commercials, etc. 

I also dispute the claim they sell out because they are discussed on TV and radio daily.  I would argue they are discussed on TV and radio daily BECAUSE they sell out.  I believe you have the cart before the horse.

On a positive note, the Youngstown State Football letters in steel look very awesome. I want to get something like that for myself. Hubbard Eaglewear used to make stuff for the team, and they don't make that shirt. Did YSU start using a different sportwear provider locally?
Picture?  Haven't seen shirt in question.

Where the "heck" are the hosts of this site?  This thread is straying a LONG way from UIW and football!!!

BTW, UIW peat Prairie View A&M 40-6  They averaged 42 a game last season but only 40.5 so far this one!
That QB looks like another Ken Anderson to me, who for years was called "Ken Anderson, from tiny Augustana College" Somehow, I don't think we've heard the last of "Cameron Ward from tiny Incarnate Word".

Strollo and company hired a  HC who has zero coordinator experience at the D1 level yet is expected to turn this thing around .  Not to mention he has to compete with 6 MAC schools for recruits within OHIO.   No need to worry though we have Petersons 20 year old son as the recruiting coordinator.  I could go on and on but have lost my interest after 20 years. If u don't think there is a problem look no further than this forum where only 20 posts were  made today after playing Michigan State.

The reason nobody is on this board posting anymore is because everyone is sick and tired of the cynical remarks and negative comments.  I'm about to jump off myself.  Who wants to read comments after two games that DP is no good, the team is a joke, no talent, recruiting sucks, Strollo sucks, Tressel sucks, YSU sucks...Youngstown at its finest...whoaaa is me...what have you done for me lately, steel is coming back, wear a mask - don't wear a mask.

Amen!  We were sitting at the patio bar at the country club after tennis and my friend was going on and on about how terrible everything is, YSU football, the Indians/Guardians, the POTUS, etc etc.  I said, "Mike, we made more money in the marked that at work this year, we are sitting at the club eating and drinking and talking about grandkids athletic endeavors and frankly, I'm thinking how lucky I am, not how UNLUCKY I am.   Damn it, the  cup is never full, but it is a damn sight short of empty! Frankly Crenshaw's performance in these first two games should be the start of a legend and all we are about is Phillips/administration/staff/player bashing.

Beau Brungard has committed to YSU. Following in dad's footsteps.
something depressing about watching the dad play and now the son play.  I think I'll cancel my tickets when the grandkids take the field!
Good Luck Beau!

This crap about beating up DP for losing to MSU is depressing.  This is his first real year as coach as EVERYTHING last year was screwed up. (for those of you that forgot or missed it, we had a world wide pandemic)  I'm not sure he's the right guy, but Luke Fickel and Jim Tressel do, and they know more about football that all on this thread!
We gave MSU a better game than Arron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers gave Saints, anybody saying all is lost in GB?
We are 1-1, did ANYBODY think we would be any different after 2 games? 
Frankly I feel more encouraged after the lost to MSU than I did after the win against UIW.   Certainly the MSU WR's were a ton faster than our DB's but so have many others including Terry Robiskie at OSU (a game I saw) and the guys at WVU.  Guys go to 1AA because they just don't have 1A size or 1A speed. Yes 1AA guys occasionally make the NFL, but as a general rule, size or speed help the decision process.  Now the the season starts.  Crenshaw has some serious game time under his belt, we have more wins than last season and the
check book is full. 
Time to see have we are going to stack up in the MVFC!  Most on this site are correct, we don't have enough good players, but you gotta start somewhere. DP didn't leave the cupboard bare, that a$$ Pelini did.  Give coach Phillips a chance.

Coaching is a big issue.  The offensive, (and I use this term advisedly!) "game plan" reminded me of my under 125# grandson's team.  Watch the video of UIW's pa$$ patterns vs. ours. One was youth league and one big time football worthy.  It was a pitiful mismatch.

Been a season ticket holder since 83. Done. Will tailgate to have fun. Will not go into another game until the Mooney faction is gone. I’m done.
I don't get this entirely.  Domestic violence is about crime not football ticket sales.  You don't do or not so something because of the tickets he may or may not sell.
Second, I don't get the Cardinal Mooney connection.  I have employees, and heaven forbid, one of them commits domestic violence, you think I, or my business, should be punished?  You guys Taliban or something? For decades Mooney has been the preeminent HS football program in the valley,  YSU is the preemminat 1AA football program in Ohio, of course there will be a bunch of well coached, but less that 1A talent coming out of Mooney and YSU is a logical place for them to play. This is a good and natural thing, why does it need to be severed because of a A-Hole criminal who happens to be a coach?  Domestic violence happens in EVERY walk of life, every day. Yes it needs addressed, but it isn't a "sports" issue, it's a societal issue.

Dude---you are quoting from something from two years ago.  That guy's comment has nothing to do with the domestic violence charges.  It was entirely about the football program stinking in 2018 and 2019.
18 & 19?  wasn't that also 2 and 3 years ago?
