Also, just a guess but I would expect some sort of announcement on revamping Beeghly in the near future.

YSU Penguin Athletics / Re: Transfer Portal
« on: March 23, 2023, 10:47:54 AM »

The NCAA issued an updated memo to college athletics programs regarding the waiver process for undergraduates who are two-time transfers.

“In all sports, four-year undergraduate student athletes who decide to transfer to a new NCAA school can generally be eligible to compete for the new school provided that they have not previously transferred and notify their current school by entering the NCAA Transfer Portal during their sport-specific transfer window,” the memo read.

Of course, that practice has been standard for a few years now, as college athletes became immediately eligible at their new institutions as a first-time transfer upon the inception of the transfer portal.

The memo continued, and noted the rules for athletes who did not qualify for the one-time transfer exception to become immediately eligible.

“A waiver process remains available for undergraduate student-athletes who do not qualify for the one-time transfer exception; however there have been changes made to the types of requests that will be considered.

“An undergraduate transfer waiver will only be considered for student-athletes who transfer for reasons related to the student-athlete’s physical or mental health and well-being; due to exigent circumstances outside the student-athlete’s control (e.g., physical or sexual assault or discrimination based on a protected class); or assertions involving diagnosed education impacting disabilities.”

The memo also said that waivers will no longer be approved just because the athlete’s participation opportunity at their former school changed, or even because of a coaching change or a change in the athlete’s scholarship status.

Boston, been thinking the same for years now, for a while I thought that the min attendance rule would force a change but they either changed the rule or just ignore it.

These mid level schools are happy to pretend and recruits love to tell their friends that they are going "big-time".

Not confident that things will ever change.

Not sure how this works but I assume a family named Beeghly ponied up money so it was named after them. Can the name be changed to honor a new contributor?

First, I do not think that a new building is needed, a redo within the same area will do nicely.

Guessing that we could use Covelli while the work is being done.

Enough money to do it with the names already mentioned, maybe two of them could share the naming rights.

Somebody must have already posted this…

Youngstown fans are the biggest front runners in the history of college athletics

Not uncommon for a lot of schools. Would be worse if the fans did not show at all.

Thought that we tried to go inside too much in the 2nd half.

YSU Penguin Athletics / Wolf man raise

TUSCALOOSA, Alabama (WKBN) – The Board of Trustees at the University of Alabama approved the contracts of several football coaches Monday afternoon, including former Youngstown State University head coach Eric Wolford.

The Crimson Tide’s offensive line coach received a contract extension through 2025 worth $925,000 per season, according to Nick Kelly from

Wolford joined the staff at Alabama in 2022. He served as the head football coach at YSU from 2010 to 2014. Over that five-year span, Wolford was 31-26 with the Penguins.

Update on this...Detroit did not get selected for the CBI.  All 16 teams in the CBI were .500 or better.  CSU and Milwaukee are in the tourney. 

So Maravich's record is safe.

I am surprised

If the Penguins win, they will add to the school record for most wins in a season and advance to the Second Round on March 18-19 to face to winner of 4-seed Washington State and Eastern Washington.

STILLWATER – The Oklahoma State Cowboys have been tabbed the No. 1 overall seed in the NIT on Sunday evening after failing to reach the NCAA tournament earlier in the day.

They’ll be facing Youngstown State on Wednesday out on the road. OSU is the host school for the NCAA Wrestling Championships in Tulsa this week, so the athletic department didn’t put in a bid to host.

The Cowboys finished the 2022-23 season with an 18-15 overall record and an 8-10 record in conference play, with a couple of very disappointing losses in the non-conference that really hurt their NCAA chances.

It was a rough start to conference play, but the Pokes rattled off seven out of eight wins, including a four-game win streak that included ranked wins over Iowa State and TCU.

The Cowboys also completed season sweeps of OU and the Cyclones, as well as a third win over the Sooners which came in the Big 12 tournament.

Good post chez,

I think that coach has done a good job but not quite ready for the big time yet. Not sure what he makes since the extension but he needs to be paid as much as his peers.
