As teams move up to FBS.  We will find it harder to recruit D1 level athletes. The pool is shrinking and YSU misses the boat.  We go D1 we would get almost 2 million to play an Ohio state not 850k.  The conference will be football only.

Dan Rivers post local radio personality Iím sharing it

I wrote the following last night. The underwhelming response to my suggestion makes me wonder if YSU football is even relevant to the Youngstown Metro,

"Wearing the badge of courage that YSU belong to the SEC of the FCS is getting old. Jeff Sagarin has been serving bettors for 30 years and his rankings appear in the USA Today weekly.

Sagarin does not fully disclose how he arrives at his ranking of 261 Division 1 teams, a list YSU finished number 138. Sagarin does disclose that strength of schedule plays a large part in his rankings. I put stock in his findings because gamblers are the best barometer of wins and losses, and the gamblers love his sheet.

Back to number 138 for YSU in the Sagarin rankings. The following teams have made the FCS playoffs this year and finished below YSU in Sagarin. The teams are Delaware, Samford, Southeast Missouri State, Elon, Gardener Webb, New Hampshire, Fordham, St Francis, North Carolina Central, Eastern Kentucky, and Davidson which comes in number 238 a full 100 teams below YSU."

My original post asked the question, is it time to look for a new league in the East and stop playing in the Dakotas.

Getting fired up!  Go YSU!

People are taking names and noticing us.  But also was said this seemed like a off year in our conference for playoff teams

Slow start

Just sayin,  he played 2 years under Rollie and is from Cleveland.  Vikings coach left for the Missouri job. Probably more money and a better budget at CSU.

We were at #17 with a little over 10k per game average. Seems a little high.


I guess what 3 appearances in 20 years can do that do your fan base.
