YSU Penguin Athletics / Spring Game
« on: April 23, 2022, 12:46:40 PM »
Anyone go?  Had another commitment.

Thoughts on NIL signees today?

Tay'Shawn Trent from Harper Woods HS looks like a nice pick up - WR. 

Need OL though!!  Hopefully that has been a priority with returning lineman and some early additions in December. 


YSU Penguin Athletics / 2021 Football Recap - Spring and Fall
« on: November 23, 2021, 01:05:22 PM »
Time to recap the season! Overall, I would give the program a C+ for a final grade.  There were definite highlights to the season and low lights that in many cases, over shadowed the highs.  The fact that 6 teams from the MVFC made the playoffs tells everyone the conference is legit for FCS and the sets the bar for competitive football. Even if they are watered down.  The fact that we beat 3 playoff teams is a plus. We should have been 6-4 this season! The team never quit all year, unlike teams from the Pelini era.  I like what I am seeing in Crenshaw, but we need a solid back-up that offers that same 1-2 punch of being able to throw and run when Crenshaw is not in the game. Having a back up that is one dimensional is an issue and defenses can tee off on the QB.

We have to make sure Jaleel does not leave, rumor has it he is looking to be invited to the NFL Combine?? Not sure that is true but whatever he does, we have to make sure he does not enter the portal, AGAIN! Would like to see two back sets but I will complain about that forever - would also like to see Crenshaw under center more!!

We will need to replace some WR and a tight end.  Tight ends are killers and we need to utilize that position more!

Recruit, Recruit, Recruit and live by the portal and die by the portal.  Have to find OL and DL now to stabilize those positions into the future.  If we want to compete and beat UNI, SDSU and NDSU - the OL and DL have to put on 40 pounds across the board and move like tight ends.  We will not be able to compete in this conference until that happens.  A great OL makes a mediocre RB look great.  If Jaleel had a solid and consistent OL - he would have doubled his yardage!!

Coaching can always be improved and hopefully this staff learned a lot about the MVFC and what it takes to win  in the meat grinder of a schedule. The offseason is when championships are won.  The staff has its first full offseason, let's see how they do!!  I say we need 10 D1 transfers to make an impact next year until recruits can step up.  Pelini era lack of recruiting set this team back 4 years.  I like what DP is doing, heard is out the next two weeks recruiting and hitting it hard and traveling around to get the bodies he needs to win. I like the schedule next year - no UNI or SDSU - time to take advantage of that!

Well. First trip to UND dome. Is Crenshaw healthy?  Will Davidson get the start if he isnít?  Will we be able to block anyone?  Will the defensive line put pressure on the QB and not expect the secondary to cover for 10 seconds?  Lots of questions!! Not a lot of answers so far.

Go Guins!

Must win on the road!  Heard they have the number one defensive player in sacks and tackles for loss. Need to control the line!  Win this. Go 3-3 into the meat grinder at the end of the year.

Go Guins!

Well - here we go again! O line play needs to improve or we are in for another long game.  DP said these are the best wide outs we have seen all year - should be a challenge for the secondary who have not played all that great either.

62-56! 950 yards pa$$ing in the game?  WTH?  Anyhow - lets get this started.  This is the game to establish the balanced attack of run game and pa$$ game.  If we can give Crenshaw some time, we should be able to get the ball downfield.  Must win at home in the conference!

Well - game 3 of the silly season!  We now face a team that was going to be the easiest of the first 4 but they go ahead and soundly beat NDSU!   :o Here are some things to look for this week:

1.  The 2 QB system is not working.  Looking for Waid to take over the reigns.  A QB needs rhythm and doing this creates an already rhythmless offense to have less rhythm.  ( I used rhythm a lot there). You get the drift!
2.  Punting for field position has to improve.  DeSalvo needs to be the punter - proved it with last punt of game last week.
3.  Need Becker and any other COVID protocol players back! 
4.  Need to control the ball a little longer this game and give the defense a break!  If we are going to win it is going to be low scoring and the defense is going to keep us in it! 
5.  We need a smack in the mouth play - Pick 6, fumble recovery for 6, something big to put them on their heels and give some life to the O.  It will happen and it will change the game when it does! 
6.  The D is solid across all aspects - run, run support from secondary, pa$$ coverage.  Can only get better but need to come off the field!  Couple of 3rd and longs last week really hurt them.  Need big stops on 3rd down!
7.  Is Tim Johnson suiting up?
8.  Please fix the sound system!  I can't believe we have the multimedia press box and a sound system that sounds like Charlie Brown's teacher.  ( I used sound a lot there). get the picture!
9.  Last one -  I swear - give Gonya a shot - if you are going to platoon QB's this spring then do it with the kickers!
10.  One more - bring back tailgating - this pandemic is over!  No tailgating - no Pete on a Stick!


YSU Penguin Athletics / UNI Gameday Thread
« on: February 27, 2021, 08:13:36 AM »
Game 2 of the silly season. Things to look for:
1. QB Play- how quick will Waid step in and take the reigns? 
2. Will the O line progress enough to pa$$ block in the first half so we can complete a pa$$.
3. We will see a much better QB today. Can the secondary continue to cover like they did last week.
4. Will McLaughlin be the go to RB?
5. +7.5 is a surprising line. Can we make UNI 0-2 on season!
6.  Coaching- I like the run game but need to open it up a bit more early.
7.  Tight Ends -  canít say that enough. We have two good ones. Use them!! 

Go Guins!

YSU Penguin Athletics / NDSU Gameday
« on: February 21, 2021, 10:53:34 AM »
Since the other posts are full of medical experts espousing about masks and a virus, I thought I would start a post on the actual gameday thoughts and expectations.  Here is what I am looking for:

1.  Coaching presence and motivation of team - how will the coaches handle adversity because we know we are going to have it this spring?  Management of clock.  Some sign of a plan and strategy for putting talent in winning situations. 
2. Any sign of glimmers of talent or play from positions and players?  Who will shine today?  Who will be a bust?
3. Coach play calling - offense and defense.  Will we be in at least the right positions today to make plays? Not panicking!  Reinforcing young mistakes instead of berating them as we have had in the past. 
4.  O Line - subbing and ability to stay together as a unit.
5.  Defense - secondary - can they cover?  Can they make plays on the ball instead of having back to QB all day?
6.  Keeping up with the pace of the game!
7. Injuries - keep to minimum this game and rest of spring. 

Lots to look for and looking forward to YSU football again.

YSU Penguin Athletics / a$$istant Coaches
« on: February 10, 2020, 10:48:42 PM »
OK..the head coach is in position.  As I stated before, recruiting and a$$istant coaches are the key.  I started this for updates on a$$istant coaches.  I have heard the DC is from John Carrol and the OC is from EKU?  Grosetti staying as strength coach, Peterson staying as O Line - I think??  Has anyone heard anything else?

Post anything you hear...
