YSU Penguin Athletics / Re: Valpo Game Thread
« on: August 31, 2023, 09:13:10 PM »
Disappointing first half. Outside of the big run by King, YSU has been outplayed. Some bad penalties, a couple unsportsmanlike with one that will give Valpo 15 yards to start the 2nd half. Terrible ending to the half.

First thoughts that came to my head was if they fire Huggins what effect on Calhoun.  I've always felt Calhoun would stay at YSU until Huggins called it quits.

I'm sure Huggins would be fired at many universities, but I'm not so sure at WVU

Can't say I'm super surprised by Shemar...I was hoping at this point he was staying.

He went from starting at the beginning of the year to not even playing by season's end.  It seemed like after he got snowed in in Toronto and missed practice his playing time was never the same.  Then add in that injury after that that kept him out, but when he returned he barely played. 

I agree it seemed like his size was an issue at times, but I did like watching him running the point and he seemed to have a high iq.  I'm guessing too he figured with all these incoming transfers the same thing was probably going to happen again this year.

Jackson ST??

Guessing he meant Southern.  That was a bloodbath at YSU this year.

Looks like Ziggy Reid is coming to YSU
https://twitter.com/ziggy_reid5/status/1645472544894468096

He's 6'6 and played all 4 years at Merrimack, which jumped to D1 this year and won their tournament but was ineligible.  He's started the last 3 years averaged over 10 points a game including more than 14 last year in D1.

Heard Imanuel Zorgvol, the 7 footer that was at NKU and entered the portal, was in Youngstown visiting YSU on Friday.


According to NKUís website, they have two 7 footer on the roster.
He was a redshirt freshman last year and he didnít play.
Without any meaningful statistic, I donít have idea how good he is. They also have another 7í1 sophomore who average only 0.7 points and 1.4 rebounds a game last year.
So, why does a redshirt freshman enter the transfer portal with the guy ahead of him played without any significant stats.

He played in 32 games last year averaging about 9 mins a game, 2.6 pts, 2.8 rebounds & .7 blocks

I was hoping he didn't enter the portal, but I can't say I'm super surprised.  His PT decreased and there were games he hardly played.  Hope the same isn't going to be the case with Shemar.

Did Jacori withdraw his name from the portal?   cannot find his name in there anymore.

I remember Coach Calhoun saying at the beginning of the season he was a work in progress.  Last year I thought he possibly had some potential, but it seemed like when he got in games this year he just looked lost and didn't have good mobility.  Didn't seem like he really progressed any so I figured he would be transferring.  He probably should be at D2 or D3

I hope coach can get players from the portal that will be here for couple of years instead of one and done.
I hope a lot of power 5 bench players will join the mid majors by entering the portal to get more playing time.

Speaking on the question on whether coach C will stay after this yearís success, the FDU head coach just left to join Iona after just one year on the job. Of course, he took the team to the big dance and took down the one seat.

That whole dynamic with FDU is crazy.  If it weren't for the ridiculous rule that a school moving up to D1 can't be eligible for postseason, Merrimack would have made the tournament and Tobin Anderson wouldn't even have been considered for the Iona job. 

Instead FDU gets a play in game and wins, then takes down Purdue, and nearly pulled off another upset to the Sweet 16.  It got the FDU program a ton of exposure.  I did not know FDU had the smallest team in college basketball and didn't realize he took a 4-win team to what he accomplished in one year.  As I mentioned before, ironically Brandon Rush was at FDU last year. 

However, with that success now FDU is probably starting all over again.

Look if we were not previously competitive without the the portal, just what makes you think we will be anymore competitive WITH the the portal going forward? It is not like we are the only team that makes use of it. If it was Calhoun (not the portal), then he should be just as successful without the portal. Portal is terrible.

I would say he was pretty successful without the portal with guys like DQ, Naz, Covington, and Akuchie and where the program was headed until COVID, injuries, and the portal started. 

So you're basically saying it's a bad thing the mid majors are competitive in the tournament?  And that YSU nearly knocked off Oklahoma State

I'm not going to sit here and brag the portal up, but it is giving mid majors more of a chance

At first i thought it was bad for the game but now i see how a team can benefit from the portal as we did this past year.   I have no problem with teams and coaches taking advantage of the portal.  Any more from YSU plan on transferring out besides Dunn?

I agree with you.

He is from Michigan and was recruited by Ferris state and Hillsdale and I heard a rumor that Ashland was showing some interest.  Just opens up another spot for transfer portal.  Who will be next?

Sorry I started this topic before I saw you had already done one.

Will Dunn is the first YSU player to entered the transfer portal.  Not really surprised by this.  He was one I could see dropping down to D2 or D3. 

His PT disappeared after the Detroit home game at the end of January, and I'm pretty sure that was the game Cohill yelled at him after a turnover.  He also played the most mins in that game at 19 than he did all season.  After that he only played in 6 of the final 11 games for a total of 13 mins and did not score.   

He really improved from his freshman year to his sophomore year and even started 13 games last year.  I was hoping for more improvement this year.  He did hit 6 of his 13 3-point attempts this year.  He seemed to struggle on the defensive side this year and turned the ball over too much.

I agree on Rush. Ironically he camefrom Fairleigh Dickinson that won 4 games last year. Only way you'd think he'd transfer is if Coach left or he felt the team wasn't going to be a winner.

I'd be surprised if Lovelace left but you really don't know.

I could see Dunn possibly moving down to D2 or D3. YSU has lost a few to that in recent years. Have to wonder about Owens. At one point Coach said he was a work in progress.

Not sure what to think on Hunter & Shemar. Seemed like after he got snowed in in Toronto & didn't play hardly at all those next 2 games then the injury he lost all his playing time. He went from being a starter to like 9th or 10th.
