YSU Penguin Athletics / Next coach
« on: March 08, 2017, 08:03:17 PM »
Hoping a new thread will help focus on who the next coach will be.

A proven D1 coach is no doubt out of the question due to money.

Please please please stay away from a lower division coach. May find a diamond now and then but usually they are at a lower division for a reason.

As I have posted before, go out find a young Wooden, enjoy a 3-4 year ride and after a big-time program grabs him, do it again.

I believe that it was 75 years ago today that the penalty flag was first used, thrown against Youngstown College.

YSU Penguin Athletics / Ladies play on Wed
« on: March 14, 2016, 10:19:18 PM »
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – The Youngstown State women’s basketball team has earned the right to play in a postseason tournament for the third time in the last four years. The Penguins will host Stony Brook on Wednesday at 7:05 p.m. at Beeghly Center in the opening round of the Women’s Basketball Invitational. The game is presented by Medical Mutual of Ohio, the official healthcare provider of Youngstown State University.

YSU is playing in the WBI, a 16-team tournament played on campus sites, for the first time. It comes after appearances in the Women’s NIT in 2013 and 2015, making this the first time in program history that the Penguins will play in the postseason three times in a four-season span. Stony Brook’s head coach is Youngstown State Athletics Hall of Fame member Caroline McCombs, who was a starter on YSU’s NCAA Tournament teams in 1996 and 1998.

Tickets will be $10 for adults and $5 for children ages 12-and-under, and YSU students will be admitted for free with a valid student ID. The YSU Athletic Ticket Office in Stambaugh Stadium will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday, and Penguin Club members and season ticket holders will have until 5 p.m. on Wednesday to purchase their tickets. The Beeghly Center Ticket Office and gates to the arena will open at 6 p.m. on Wednesday. For more information or to order tickets by phone, call (330) 941-1YSU.

Youngstown State enters the WBI with a 19-12 record, one victory away from the 11th 20-win season in program history. The Penguins were the No. 6 seed in last week’s Horizon League Tournament, and they beat Oakland in the opening round before falling to Wright State in the quarterfinals.

Stony Brook will come to Youngstown with a 17-14 overall record, which included an 8-8 mark in the America East Conference. The Seawolves are playing in the WBI for the second straight season, both of which have come with McCombs as their head coach.

Youngstown State and Stony Brook have played twice previously in a home-and-home series in the 2011-12 and 2012-13 seasons. Stony Brook beat YSU 54-47 in New York on Dec. 27, 2011, and Youngstown State evened the series with a 76-43 win in Youngstown on Nov. 30, 2012. The winner of Wednesday’s matchup will advance to play either UMBC or Fairfield.

The Horizon League has had success in the first years of the WBI. UIC won the tournament as a No. 4 seed in 2014, and Detroit was the champion as a No. 1 seed in 2013.

See some chatter about Carson Wentz being possible option for the Browns. Any thoughts?

YSU Penguin Athletics / Old Friends
« on: January 02, 2016, 06:14:17 PM »
I noticed that several of our old friends (that have made the move to FBS) enjoyed a bowl trip this year. Interesting that at one time all these schools played at the same level as YSU and we beat all of them but one.

Appy St, Western KY, Akron, Boise, Georgia Southern, Middle TN, Marshall and Nevada.

Also, looking at this list makes it easier to understand why NDSU is able to dominate 1AA, it is a very watered down division, not near as competitive as it was 20 years ago. Too many top programs have moved on.

YSU Penguin Athletics / Lets be clear about this
« on: November 15, 2015, 12:23:24 PM »
My take on Bo.

Why do opposing teams give a rats tail about Bo, why take shots at him, why question his motives for being at YSU? Do they care that much for YSU that they want someone better for us, Yea I am sure that is it. Let's be real, they simply do not want Bo here because he is a good coach.

Most of us have no idea what all happened at Nebraska and maybe that is for the best. I am a fan of the John Wooden approach but that is not his style.

I admire his stated reasons for being in Y-town, hard to argue his intentions for his family.

How will the players respond, how will the powers to be respond and how will Bo respond. That is our concern, our business.

Bottom line is that only time will tell how history will treat him, but at this time I am glad he is here and am excited about the future.

YSU Penguin Athletics / SDSU recap
« on: October 17, 2015, 08:19:13 PM »
Where the heck were the fans? Only 6 home games a year folks, support the team the weather was not that bad.

D played ok for 3 qtr's.

We have not forced a turnover for over 2 games now. Shot our self in the foot early for the second straight game.

I guess that we were without 3 starters on the o-line, but no excuse, at this level they have to step up.

I wondered how we would respond after last weeks loss, not well. Team had no spark.

Thought that SDSU kept their starters in too long, not cool.

The first time we went on 4th down at the north end, only sent out 1 receiver, scratching my head on that one.

Not a good effort, very frustrating

YSU Penguin Athletics / Ill st recap
« on: October 10, 2015, 11:17:50 PM »
At the risk of being an optimist, I do not like to lose but I think we made a positive statement tonight. We went toe to toe with them. Team could have given up a couple of times but they did not. The birds made a couple of big plays so give them credit. We had the only turnover and a couple of penalties that hurt and we still took them to the limit.

I thought that the crowd was pretty good and they saw a really good game. Anyone that says they will not be back because we lost - please just stay home.

I say that we get payback in the play-offs.
