YSU Penguin Athletics / Re: Beeghly Center
« on: January 20, 2019, 10:39:37 PM »
You guys have to be fair. The Convocation Center was built for the Cleveland Crunch (Force), CSU took control when the original owner wanted to build the Gund Arena. It's capacity for basketball is almost half of it's max. This is why we should not have under-built the Chevy Center when we did. In short, YSU is paying for things themselves & CSU did not. Sure they (CSU) pay for updating it, but they do not have a football stadium (like Stambaugh) to maintain either.

BTW, real YSU basketball fans might complain, but will still go to games and sit in bleachers. They are not doing it now and have not since before Tressel became AD. Attendance has been an issue long before Strollo.

Power, you are making my point. Saying that we could not score against good teams is simply not the truth. Your team is not always going to make its average of 34.8 PPG. That would obviously be against the better teams. My real point was that we never had any defense to pick up the slack, in 7 of the 8 years that coach Shane was here. BTW, I do not think any team should be winning games on offense. This is YSU and we play in the MVFC. You don't see NDSU winning games on offense. We need to shut down opponents, not beat them to the finish line. Keeping your opponent out of the end-zone is just as important as scoring. IMO, much more important. If I am playing SDSU next week, I know they have the #2 defense in the league (allowing an average of only 23 PPG), so I am not expecting to get 34.8 points ...maybe 24 or 21. That is perfectly normal and if your defense cannot keep SDSU below 21, then we are going to lose.

Look at 2010, that was just a random pick, but we did have that mistake Kravitz as a DC, the guy that everyone was excited about ... Mr Florida/SEC.

We average 31.27 PPG on offense and 31.55 PPG on defense. In 5 games, we scored more points than we did against Butler that same season. We had 4 really good drives at Penn State and 14-points. We scored 31 against SIU and almost lost as SIU missed a FG to tie. We scored 25 against SMS, but gave up 35 (and I am willing to admit that 25 was below average & we did have a TO). We scored 38 against WIU and gave up 40. Scored 30 against UNI and gave up 34. I am willing to admit that Hess had a terrible game (4 INT's) against a decent ISU, but we gave up just under 500-yards on defense. Yes, it would have been close, but 24-points should have won that game. All but 1 of ISU's scores followed turn overs.

Good conversation. Wolf's biggest issue was his hiring of two poor DC's. Then he booted so many players his first year, it scared off recruits. Then when we were able to land coach Shane we were losing games while putting up record numbers on offense. Look at the numbers, there is not one Wolf era top-9 player in Tackles, Solo Tackles, Assists, Sacks, Break-ups. One thing that I will say about Bo ...I think that he is used to top-notch recruits (and recruiting staff) at Nebraska. The average recruit at out level needs work. I am not sure that Bo and staff put enough into the fundamentals. If Tress came back, to the sidelines, I would like to think that he would hire Heacock before Bo. Heacock brings MVFC history. They are Complimenting coaches & less chance of conflict.

Due to forecasted severe weather on Saturday, the Youngstown State men's basketball game against Northern Kentucky on Saturday, Jan. 19, has been moved to 1 p.m. at the Beeghly Center.

Fans that cannot attend due to the game time change may exchange their unused January 19th game tickets at the Stambaugh Stadium ticket office for a future men's or women's game.

  Chief, you are correct, but he doesn't seem to be able to handle the media in Youngstown.  He blows off radio and TV shows, when players were suspended a few years ago during the playoffs, that was butchered by YSU as well.

 As for doing what Tressel did, thats over!  Not going to happen again in our lifetime!   Winning 3 titles in 4 years, 4 in a decade, once in a lifetime stuff.   Playoffs every 3 of 4 years should be the goal.  With 24 teams, its not that hard.

I am not so sure. NDSU just won their 7th in less than 10-years. App State, Georgia Southern all had multiple championships, mostly back-to-back.. Johnson was hired at Navy, then Georgia Tech.

Clemson, S.C. - Youngstown State senior Chad Zallow finished first in the 60m hurdles and junior Jaliyah Elliott finished second in the 60m dash at the Clemson Orange & Purple Elite Invitational on Friday afternoon.

Zallow started off a dominating afternoon by posting the fastest time in 60m hurdle prelims with a time of 7.71 seconds. In the finals, Zallow won with a time of 7.75 seconds beating out Florida State's Trey Cunningham who ran a time of 7.82 seconds.

In the prelims, Elliott posted the fastest time in the 60m dash with a time of 7.45 seconds. Elliott beat out unattached runner Breana Norman and ASCIS professionally sponsored runner Candace Hill. In the finals, Elliott finished second and was the highest collegiate finisher as unattached runner Breana Norman edged her out by .05 seconds.

Freshman Destiny Washington also competed this afternoon and ran a time of 8.93 seconds in Heat 3 of the 60m hurdles.

The Penguins are next in action a week from today when they play host to the YSU College Invitational at the WATTS.

The passing was so bad (when they were trying to run down those last 2+ minutes) that they could not set those shots up. As some of you have said, they need to just keep playing their game.

I do not necessarily agree Chief. I think he sees what one Jim Tressel accomplished right out of YSU and hopes for a similar result. I do not think he came for any other reason. I do think he expected it a bit sooner than than it will come though.

We should not overlook Howard. They suffered some injuries, but still played well against Ohio (OT loss), beat Bethune-Cookman and FLAMU. All three are good programs.

I think that maybe the guys are trying to still lean a system and forget the basics. For example,  I cannot remember the last time that I saw a 10-second violation at the DI level. Maybe back when there was no possession arrow. Then again I do not watch as much as most of you.

« on: January 13, 2019, 01:48:22 PM »
Isn't one of these 5th-years guys enough? We essentially destroyed our future last year and did not get what we were hoping for. Let's not go it again please.

This guy is a 2-year starter from a P5 conference... way different then Vangorder, who was pretty much a d2 quality Qb

I think that we are getting our players mixed up. I would prefer younger guys, but welcome the center transfer. I do not wish to have another 1-year guy taking snaps. I think Martell was a red shirt Soph, so he has two years and I would take that. Not much on west coast guys myself, but Bo is. He can play anywhere & if he already red-shirted, he may have 3-years, in which case he is never transferring down.

We are really moving the ball around in the second half. I am seeing 4 & 5 touches on most every possession & 2 timely 3's. Did you see that 3-pointer by Akuchie? It was basically from half-court.

No doubt their fans are loving it but I think that NDSU's dominance is bad for 1AA. Boring for everyone else when the same team wins so much. No Clemson out there to make it interesting.

Could not agree more. People were sick of YSU and Marshall back in the early 90's as well. (Marshall played so much better than we did in the regular season though).  I just root for anyone that is playing NDSU, to heck with the conference. If NDSU loses 3 conference games they are still in, if we lose 3 conference games, we are not even a post-season thought.

BTW: Would not surprise me if Alabama threw the game. I am just as sick of Clemson coming out of that 1-team conference. Then we have Notre Dame that gets in despite having no conference affiliation! Explain that? They get their "trophy" from NBC every year ... it comes in the form of an enormous residual check. Now, in addition to the NBC funds,  they take 1/4 of the play-off monies and do not have to share it. The money that ND made this year is going make that team into another Alabama.

better hope we barbecue those weenies or it will be another long year with few people in the stands.

W&M defeats JMU more often than not. So do you see last year's squad even competing with the Tribe? I would say the Ivy League is traditionally deeper than the Patriot. The MEAC is much deeper. The Patriot league and the Ivy are basically the same in terms of FB. 1 or two teams at the top & nobody else. Just like every conference in the country ...except ours. So again, why schedule strength? When the NCAA assigns a number to a schedule, or teams (ranks them ALL each week) then schedule strength means something. Until then it is a joke. OOC schedule strength is NOT a factor, so give me home games.
