I think that our pass rush, even with blitzing, did not work and their qb just stood back and looked for an open receiver. Our qb sure didn't have that option. Our secondary looked out of position and at times the coverage scheme with our zone coverage fell apart. Man coverage is difficult with the caliber of receivers they have and the time the qb had. They could have thrown long all day if we stayed in that coverage. In the 2nd half with number 11 back, we were able to play more man coverage which I think worked better than our poor zone coverage. Not sure if we have any other dbs to improve on coverage. Did they take it easy on us in the 2nd half? Probably some trying to get their 2nd string qb playing time. Who knows. I wonder what Mitch Davidson could do as their qb today. With all that time I think he would be very good also.

On offense we did ok and for sure Tyshon needs to be our primary running back. He is head and shoulders better than the others. And as I understand it, has another year of eligibility.

I heard that the Liberty tail back was not 100%, just 85%, so he was held out of the game. He has had trouble staying health. I think King is as good or better.

I was a bit disappointed in our performance as most have noted. The run game may be acceptable with King at rb. I was hoping that our d line would provide pressure on the qb, but not so.

I think this may be year 4, but the 1st 2 really don't count as 2 years with the covid disaster. We did not get the recruiting or development those years. The playoffs are expected, but not an easy job in our league with our team. I sure hope we make it.

OSU will be interesting. I hope it is not a complete beat down. I think OSU will not take it easy on us and try to run up the score for their ratings. We need to bring our A game and hope for the best. I attended the last 2 times there, but won't be attending this year.

I will be there! My main focus will be our running backs. Can't replace Jaleel, but we need performance from.our backs so our offense can be productive. I think the rest of our team has a chance to be very good, but without a strong run game, the team will be in trouble in tough games. It may take Brunguard at times at QB to save the run game.

Jaleel had another good game. Scored a TD, had 10 carries for 45 yards, and 4 pass receptions. I saw one drop on a pass out of the backfield. His only problem seems to be picking up much larger pass rushers so on 3rd down, much like when his was with us. It seems they bring in another back in those situations. Hope for the best for him.

Jameel seems to have had another good game. 7 carries for 45 yards and 2 receptions for 8 yards. One td also.

Just got my tickets today.

I see a current assistant was named interim head coach. Search for full time head coach after the season.

I agree with much of what has been said. Many factors contributed to the loss and the poor play on our part. One of the biggest issues I think is the result of the problems at the end of the Detroit game. I saw an apology from YSU to Detroit and I know the Detroit coach talked to a Horizon League official after the game. It seemed to me that our team and coach were down for the game and didn't have the energy level that they normally have. Who knows what went on behind closed doors at YSU, the Horizon League, and the officials’ meetings. DC was not himself with the smiles and talking to the fans and refs. And I think the refs were told to keep an eye on the YSU team to keep them in line. The foul disparity was large and the last foul on DC was sure a charge to me, and with over 5 minutes to go in the game it was huge. And Dwayne's reaction after the call was not Dwayne at all.

Other problems were a lack of a game plan offensively and defensively against a well know opponent. The injury to Malek Green which hurt our inside game on offense and defense. Our lack of a bench to replace Malek. And our players did not step up in such a big game. Our inside problems on defense and rebounding were sure apparent. With all of that we were down only 4 with about 4 minutes to go! And if we had Dwayne, our clutch guy, we had a good chance to win.

I think of the starters, only Rush is back. Not sure about the others.

That format would have really given us an edge.

The top four teams are really competitive with one another in my opinion and some of the other teams have their moments so we are in for a battle. Everyone knows everyone and some of our weaknesses have been exposed as have others. Our inside defense seems to be vulnerable as we have not been substituting inside players as of late and to avoid foul trouble we are playing a bit soft inside. Bryce has had trouble hitting 3's like he did in the mid part of the season which has hurt our offense. Fortunately the other starters seem ok and John Lovelace is coming along nicely as our 6th man. We need to work to our strengths and avoid 3's by players not hitting many like Miles and Malek unless they get on a streak. Garrett and Shemar can be great to get us over the top. At least we have a team that has the talent to compete with anyone in the league for the 1st time ever in my opinion.

Yes, that is correct.

RMU beats Milwaukee by 20. Milwaukee has been down since losing to GB last week in OT at home. We need to be ready and I think coach will have us ready. RMU will try to get our bags in foul trouble since our inside subs are not up to our starters.  We need to be ready and I think we will.

I agree with the above post.  Some of our guys have fallen off from what they were doing in the early and middle parts of the season. 3 point shooting has really fallen off as has the free throws. Only DC and BR have been a bit reliable from the 3 point line. And the press bringing up the ball needs improvement. It may be we are playing our guys too many minutes and they are tired. Our bench is questionable at best and we keep our starters in for the most part at the end of the game. Yesterday we took some bad shots, missed a lot of three's and free throws, had steals on inbounding the ball in the back court, and had CSU make some unbelievable shots and we lost by 3.  I think the coach can fix the inbounding the ball problem, but the rest may be difficult with our team beyond the starters not contributing that much. John Lovelace, Myles Hunter, and Shemar may be the answer to get us some rest for the starters. Thursday will be big in my opinion so hope we are up to it.

Wright State beats Northern Kentucky tonight so only Milwaukee is in 2nd place with 4 losses.

Cleveland State a tough game Sunday at 1. Only about 38 hours rest and travel from Indiana to Cleveland. Hope we are up to a difficult trip and game.
