Interesting information, has been looking at all the public schools.  It looks like Students subsidies equal -about 70% of revenue.  I havenít seen where the other schools are at.  I think we are better than some of the MAC schools.

Carmen Bricillo joining NFLís New England Patriots

By Brian Dzenis

The New England Patriots have added another piece from Youngstown State.

Penguins offensive line coach Carmen Bricillo is heading to the NFL as an assistant offensive line coach, multiple sources familiar with the matter said. He had been with YSU for the past nine seasons.

He joins former Penguin players Derek Rivers and Damoun Patterson in New England. The Mahoning Valley connections with the Patriots donít end there as Cardinal Mooney and Ohio State graduate John Simon suited up for the Patriots as they won their sixth Super Bowl on Feb. 3, beating the Los Angeles Rams, 13-3. Simon is set to become a free agent in March.

Patriots head coach Bill Belicheckís father, Steve, grew up in Struthers.

YSU athletic director Ron Strollo said he could neither confirm nor deny that Bricillo had left for the NFL. Head coach Bo Pelini did not return a call for comment on the matter. In his National Signing Day press conference on Wednesday, he was asked if he had spoken with Rivers and Patterson following the Super Bowl. Pelini said no, but said he took a phone call from Belicheck Wednesday morning, but did not provide specifics on what the call was about. The Patriots did not respond to requests for comment.

Bricillo joined the Penguins as part of former head coach Eric Wolfordís staff in 2010. He spent one season with Illinois and three with Akron before coming to Youngstown. During his tenure, YSU passed for at least 2,000 yards each season and cleared 2,000 yards rushing in all but one year. In 2018, guard Gavin Wiggins was a first-team All-Missouri Valley Football Conference selection with center Vitas Hrynkiewicz taking second-team honors. Running back Tevin McCaster ran for a career-high 1,235 yards.


Defensive end Justus Reed is receiving a sixth year of eligibility via a medical redshirt, the team confirmed Monday afternoon.

Reed tore his Achillesí tendon last July, weeks before fall camp was set to start and missed the entire season. He transferred to YSU from Florida after spending three years with the Gators, including one redshirt year. He appeared in seven games for the Penguins in 2017, collecting 15 tackles, including five sacks. He was limited by an arm injury that year.

Reed is the second player in program history to get a sixth year. Former wideout Jelani Berassa was with the Penguins from 2009 through 2014, collecting two medical redshirts from knee injuries he suffered during fall camp in 2010 and 2012.

YSU Penguin Athletics / Guess where Shane Montgomery will be OC?

As Pelini still seems stuck on Crist; Shane Montgomery looks to be the new
OC at James Madison. Maybe Bo can bring in another Mooney guy Lol!

I havenít watched a game and 2 years and I put it in today.   We look bad.  We canít shoot.  We look like a play ground pick up team.  I donít see one player that is truly a Div 1 starter.  I wonít be watching again!

YSU Penguin Athletics / What is up? Why no announcement on keeping Pelini?

Anybody here anything and are we going with the same assistants?

Good coaches recruit, make adjustments in game, and game plan to their talent, and opponent.  YSU staff this year would get an F.  We are soooo behind the eight ball that a few little tweaks wonít be enough.  The line coach should be fired. Stoops should be fired, hell the all need fired. I hit the number on the nose on 4 wins this year.  I as a alum, former penguin club member who will not donate another dime till we completely overhaul the Athletic department, and the Football program.  We are in the Wrong conference, no rivalries to build a fan base.  I can go on and on.  1k in the stands for Senior day is unacceptable.  It needs to be fixed. IT starts at the top and the Athletic Dept. needs a new vision and house needs to cleaned. From marketing and deciding if the conferences we are in are really where we need to be.  If we canít afford good coaches we will NEVER compete at a championship level.  We are out of home town discounts.  You lost me as a diehard yesterday I didnít even watch it live I did holiday stuff. I havenít even watched the tape yet.  If you lost a diehard like me why the hell would anybody else want to be a fan etc.  signed a distressed YSU fan!

YSU Penguin Athletics / Duzzer+Heacock+Pelini=mediocrity

Youngstown St football other than the Tressel years and a few years in the 70ís has been a mediocre program.  We are a joke. We need to totally clean out the athletic office as well as the coaching staff.  If this was a private business the fire sale would have begun.

YSU Penguin Athletics / Vindy article about 1993 championship season
« on: September 13, 2018, 10:24:33 PM »
Good article.  Everything they talk about is what is missing on current teams.  We were physical, mentally tough, had good defenses and special teams.  Tressel made a quote and says he went 9 or 10 championship games with 8 different QBs between the bucks and penguins. He said his staff prepared them and coached them to their individual talents.  Thatís what the great ones do.  Boy where we spoiled by

YSU Penguin Athletics / The reality of Youngstown St. Football
« on: September 03, 2018, 05:08:04 PM »
Reality:  The football program has regressed to the point it is no longer a top tier contender in league play and is no longer a National power in FCS.

Diehard fan board perception.  Still predicting playoff seasons and thinks we are an FCS power.

Reality: The state of Youngstown has lost population, and is no longer a premier HS recruiting hotbed.  Loss of many different companies has hurt the area as well.  The money has dried up.

Perception.  If we just recruit this area we will win.  Where are all the fans?  Why arenít more people donating money etc to the a Penguin Club. Etc

We are in denial on this board because of what happened 25 years ago. The powers to be never got us to the next level when we had the chance. The area is dying and the fan base is dying off and the millennial donít give a sh**.  We canít afford to spend what we are spending and never get to the playoffs.  Now the Butlers are beating us and spending pennies on the dollar in their program.  It hasnít worked since Tressel people!

Interest in This game is non existent!

How many wins? Do we make playoffs? And do u want Pelini back?

YSU Penguin Athletics / Marijuana testing for athletics
« on: July 07, 2018, 10:27:13 AM »
So it seems that the only time the NCAA tests for weed is championship events.  So does the university randomly test athletes and do they test the same as the NCAA.  When we had the suspensions the championship year could they have been prevented.
