YSU Penguin Athletics / Re: Itís officially Football Season
« on: April 12, 2024, 05:05:02 PM »
We talk about rebuilding and defensive concerns. Last year's D was terrible. Most of what we lost couldn't play.
D is better because of the portal. King will help (I thought this was understood all year last season as a covid year?)
Biggest lose is Oliver. I think he can play on Sunday, and won't be an easy replacement. beau should be fine and don't. Ount out Shannon.

Ok. Now that we got another disappointing basketball season behind us. Time to focus on spring ball and who our starting QB is going to be!  Looking forward to spring practice and see who starts to make some moves.

Go Guins!
Ending was disappointing but with 4 new players, a 20 win season after last year's record season was NOT another disappointing basketball season. That being said , I really look forward to football. Absolutely should be playoffs again.

WIth upper bleachers folded up cap6icity couldn't be  more than 4800-5000. That being said, that would be our biggest crowd in a while.

This is like loosing most of the D players. We ain't loosing much. Special teams have been OK but D not so much. Ufortunate,y we will have all new players and all new coaches defensively and new QB RB and WR.  Might be a tough start to the season.

Took this team a few weeks to get on the same page but in the middle of the season we are playing better than we were in the middle of last year. Sure would like to win the tournament!

15 at the half 19 with 5 to go. Had a cool 5z minutes early in 2nd half, but this was never in doubt.

6-6 at best next year.  We will be 2-2 going into league play.  Will be fortunate to win half of league games.
Villanova was certainly better than us in 2023 but they lose a ton (something like 17 starters as i recall) could be 3-1 after 4.
Should beat MSU ISU ISU SIU  That means one win out of ND SD UNI. We can get UNI in Youngstown.  All we need is a little consistent D and Brungard or Shannon to step up. Remember, Davidson was a walkon from lowly Salem HS.  Nobody even mentions Schondelmyer and he was something in HS and has better size than Beau. Every year at this time we all lament the losses but the cupboard is not bare. I remain Optimistic. I don't think we are read to compete for Frisco but I look forward to multi game playoff run.

It will be another rebuilding year.  The transfers in are not that good.  Most of them were bench sitters including the one from Gannon I believe.   Just saying.   We will be hard stretched to win 5 games
Howard will be a noticeable loss. Probably our best D player Hooker will be missed too. But honestly the rest leaves playing time for potentially better players. We really needed a better pass rush last year and honestly I'm not sure where that will come frome but BAD will not be worse TE will be noticeably improved blocking with Bray. I think RB will be equal to improved. Secondary almost by default as bad as it was last year.  You say transfers in not that good. I say transfers out not that good. Were probably half right
 We'll see. I say 8 wins.

Funny but we lament all the losses to the portal but looking and signings by YSU from the portal imo leaves us probably better not weeker.  Remember, for most games last year our defense was weak. My goodness, I read people lamenting the loss of Jordan Trowers. Good grief most games I wasn't sure he could cover me!  Also iver rooted for Wookie (intentional) and Johnson for years and will miss them but I thought they had used up all eligiblity at YSU.  Does anybody know actual status?
I see a lot of kids I think will compete for PT. O'Berry, Marshall, Shannon, Bray, Hopkins. There are a bunch of kids with potential coming from the portal. I am looking for improvement in 2024 NOzt rebuilding. Yes we lost our 3 best players Oliver King and Davidson but we have the best roster at this point than we've had for decades.

NCAA is done. Big 10 and SEC growth is ALL about leaving NCAA to go after seperate TV deal.  Without big school tv money those  arrogant bastards at NCAA are history. Probably s bad thing, but they've done such a bad job they deserve it

The first three words of your post are absolutely true. In the past the NCAA could at least theoretically control the perks that schools gave to athletes and identify under-the-table booster money. Now the NCAA has no control over perks (NIL) and money payouts are legal. How do you discipline cheaters when there are no rules?
There is no cheating if you have no rules.  Problem solved. The big schools get the best players, same as always. We get third tier, same as always. Players will develop differently so occasionally we'll get a nfl level player, same as always. Just eliminate stupid NCAA rules.  Hundreds of millions available for tv to schools with money grabbing NCAA out of the way.  Why do you think big and acc are doing this?  FOLLOW THE MONEY.
