Yes. I posted the new home comment. It was coach Dantonio that brought it up on the half-time interview.

You know there was also a Dan Inglis back in the 90's. I remember he had a nice TD against Boise State. Not sure if he caught and ran it in, or rushed from scrimmage.  I am at the office today, I will have to look when I get home.

Cla$$ of 2024 Danny Inglis (Canfield-LB) received an offer after The Grit Camp on Monday.

I think there has been a couple of them. Chris Inglis comes to mind. Played back for coach Heacock.

Unfortunately, the university was unable to acquire all the property between Fifth and Belmont and between Lincoln and the service road. We could have constructed an awesome sports complex that served baseball, track, soccer, softball, lacrosse, and tennis. The opportunity for an on-campus baseball facility is now gone. The facilities that have been squeezed into the available space are fantastic.

There is one other possibility, not on campus but on the edge of downtown. There is one more large tract of former steel mill property just east of the South Avenue bridge, opposite side of the Covelli Center. That land could house an all-turf baseball field that could accommodate YSU, high schools, and amateur baseball during the summer. I wonder if anybody ever gave that some consideration.

I thought that I saw where the Women's Sports Complex was still planned in that area. As you said, space is tight again.

Youngstown State senior Sean Peterson and pole vaulter Wyatt Lefker both qualified to reach the NCAA event. It's the first time since 2014 that YSU has qualified multiple athletes for the championship meet. They are the first Penguins to qualify in each of their signature events. YSU has had participants reach five straight NCAA meets.

Youngstown State junior right-hander Matt Brosky was named Horizon League Pitcher of the Year and junior infielder Braeden O'Shaughnessy was named First-Team All-Horizon League when the league announced its postseason award winners and all-league teams on Tuesday.

Brosky, who was also named First-Team All-Horizon League, becomes the fifth player in school history to earn conference Pitcher-of-the-Year honors. He joins Collin Floyd (2021), Aaron Swenson (2008), Justin Thomas (2005) and Brad Hennessey (2001). Brosky also becomes just the second YSU pitcher since Phil Klein in 2009 to be named First-Team All-Horizon League.

The Penguins had multiple players garner first-team all-league honors for the second consecutive season and for just the second time since 2012. It marks the first time since 2009-10 that YSU has had multiple players earn first-team all-league recognition in back-to-back seasons. O'Shaughnessy becomes just the second YSU infielder since 2013 to be named First-Team All-Horizon League.

Brosky finished the regular season leading the Horizon League with a 2.91 ERA and 89.2 innings pitched while ranking second with 92 strikeouts and a .243 opponent batting average. The Strongsville, Ohio, native tied for the league lead with five victories while pacing the league and ranking third in the nation with four complete games. Brosky's 92 strikeouts rank 47th nationally and as the fifth most in a season in program history. He could become just the fourth YSU pitcher to record 100 strikeouts in a season. With his next start, Brosky will tie the single-season school record of 15 games started. He would become just the fifth pitcher in program history to start 15 games in a single campaign. Brosky finished with a 4-4 record, a 3.72 ERA, 57 strikeouts and three complete games in 58 innings pitched over nine starts in Horizon League play.

O'Shaughnessy earns all-league honors for the first time in his career after being one of the Horizon League's top-producing hitters throughout the 2022 season. The Poland, Ohio, native leads the Penguins with a .366 batting average, 75 hits, 16 doubles, seven home runs, 40 RBIs, 35 runs scored, a .556 slugging percentage, a .437 on-base percentage and 114 total bases. He finished the regular season leading the league in batting average and hits while starting all 53 games. He became the first Penguin since John Koehnlein in 2007 to lead the Horizon League in batting. O'Shaughnessy also ranks tied for second in the league with 16 doubles, fourth with a .993 OPS, fifth with a .556 slugging percentage, fifth with 205 at bats, sixth with a .437 on-base percentage and eighth with 40 RBIs. He is the first Penguin since 2012 to record at least 16 doubles in a season. O'Shaughnessy is also the first Penguin since 2015 to record at least 75 hits in a season. The junior batted .382 and slugged .573 with 12 doubles, three home runs and 23 RBIs over 28 games in Horizon League play.

Youngstown State will open play in the 2022 Horizon League Baseball Championship against Purdue Fort Wayne on Wednesday at noon at Nischwitz Stadium in Dayton, Ohio. The game will be broadcast live on ESPN+ and

This may be a channel 10-only game I hear that B10 network may not even carry it. Price discussions going on, but I suspect that the B10 will not give up a chance to show the Buckeyes in football. That is the market value of YSU.

For the record, I do not hate OSU, my daughter and S-I-L graduated from there & I am proud. It is just that Youngstown loves OSU to the point of ignoring YSU, and all this will do is reinforce the naysayers that still think we are D-II football. Anyone but OSU is fine with me, just get your check, have a real game-plan and play everyone.

PS: complete agreement with Akron and Kent Guinpen. I was nevermore happy than when that game was cancelled. What a mistake.

I agree Wick and guinpen. Too many casual YSU fans that will say "See I told you so". We are going to hurt the fan base with this one. Although this will not be as bad as the first two games vs. OSU, as we will not be dictated to this time. Back then, Heacock did whatever Tressel/OSU told him to do. Tressel actually used us to test his team out; there were designed plays and "vanilla" O & D. Now this kind of money and game is common, we can actually prepare and play.  I still don't see us doing anything though.

Guys, we will not even score. Pitt was an awful team. This is a perennial superpower, they will not need a half to adjust. Make sure everyone plays hope for many more money game scores on ESPN so we can bury the score.

Dena Jarrells, a guard from Dunlow, W.Va., has signed a grant-in-aid to transfer from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga to Youngstown State. She will have two years of eligibility remaining as a Penguin after spending three seasons playing for the Mocs.

Jarrells led Chattanooga in 3-pointers, a$$ists and steals in 2021-22, and she was the team's leading scorer against Southern Conference opponents. arrells averaged 10.4 points overall and a team-best 11.4 points in SoCon play in her third season at Chattanooga. She also averaged 2.7 a$$ists and 1.5 steals, and she made a team-leading 57 3-pointers. She ranked among the top 10 in the SoCon in scoring, a$$ists, steals, 3-point field-goal percentage and 3-pointers per game.

As a true sophomore in 2020-21, Jarrells averaged 6.9 points and 2.3 a$$ists while shooting 39.4% from 3-point range, the third-best mark in the SoCon. She was named to the SoCon Coaches All-Freshman Team in 2019-20 when she averaged 3.7 points and 1.4 a$$ists.

Shay Kirby, a guard from Vienna, W. Va., has signed a grant-in-aid to transfer from Austin Peay State University to Youngstown State, YSU head coach John Barnes announced on Monday.

Kirby played in 79 games over three seasons at Austin Peay and scored 548 points while making 126 3-pointers for the Governors. She will have two years of eligibility remaining as a Penguin.

"Shay brings a new dimension to our team that is much needed," Barnes said. "She has great size and athleticism for a perimeter player. Her ability to play pressure defense as well as shoot a high percentage from 3-point range will be invaluable to us next season."

"Shay was a starter and big-time contributor on a 20-win Austin Peay team last season. That experience and success will put her in a great position to help our program take the next step in 2022-23."

Kirby, a 5-foot-10 guard who graduated from Parkersburg H.S., averaged 26 minutes per game in 2021-22 for a Governors squad that went 20-13 and played in the Women's Basketball Invitational. Kirby averaged 7.2 points and 2.9 rebounds while shooting 41.7 percent from the field. She made 47 3-pointers while making 39.6 percent of her attempts from long distance, and she added 20 a$$ists, 22 steals and eight blocks in 30 games, 21 of which she started. Kirby ranked sixth in the Ohio Valley Conference in 3-pointers per game, and she was seventh in 3-point field-goal percentage.

As a true sophomore in 2020-21, Kirby averaged 7.5 points and 22.9 minutes per game in 18 contests. She ranked ninth in the OVC in 3-pointers made per game with 1.8 while shooting 35.8 percent from behind the arc. Kirby averaged 6.4 points and was named the OVC Freshman of the Week twice in 2019-20. She made 45 3-pointers that season, which ranked second among all freshmen in the conference and as the third-highest mark ever by an Austin Peay freshman.

Mine went back as well. :) See everyone Saturday !!   I am okay with night games. I like early or late over mid-day. Tailgating for just a couple of hours is a lot of work.

The Youngstown State men's tennis clinched a share of its first-ever Horizon League regular-season title with a 6-1 win over UIC on Saturday at the YSU Indoor Tennis Center.

The Penguins improve to 12-8 overall and are unbeaten in league play at 7-0. UIC falls to 3-18 and 1-6 on the campaign. YSU's last conference championship came on the Division II level when it won the Mid-Con title back in 1980.

YSU picked up a the singles point with wins at No. 1 and No. 2. At No. 1, Harry Fouzas and Laurentiu Mandocescu earned a 6-2 win to clinch it for YSU after Will Everett and Nathan Favier won 6-2 at No. 2.

In singles, YSU won five of the six matches in straight sets.

At No. 1, Mandocescu earned a 6-3, 6-4 win over Gustavo Schwebel. At No. 2, Fouzas beat Pelle Strandberg by a score of 6-2, 6-3. At No. 3, Clement Mainguy earned a 6-1, 6-2 win over Anthony Nguyen. Favier picked up a 6-1, 6-2 victory over Kevin Kruzel. At No. 6, David Alvarez Moreno remained unbeaten in league matches with a 7-5, 6-2 score.

YSU concludes the regular season at Cleveland State next Saturday.

Normally I would completely agree with this conversation, forgetting the past ... even spearhead it. However, with the team being new and not performing well, it IS the proper time to dig back into the past glories. Besides, how long do you think Strollo and Tressel, going to be around? Both are now what I would consider "Short-timers" (just as I am at 60-years of age). The average fan needs a reason to get up and/or stay out in the cold, on fall Saturdays. We have to a$$ociate coach Phillips as part of this winning mentality with the fans and the recruits.

The reason thought this was important is because we beat the top Golf teams in the conference. Although Wright State may end up being the leagues top team, all 3 of the teams we defeated were ranked above us in the league. The men's team went from 1 top-4 finish 2-years ago, to 4 top-5 finishes last year (2 runner-ups) to a sanctioned tournament victory this year. Tremendous improvement.
