YSU Penguin Athletics / Re: YSU to Name Ethan Faulkner MBB Coach!

I just have one question about Faulkner. Was he actively engaged along with Calhoun in recruiting from the transfer portal over the last two seasons?  If he was, we might be okay. But if Faulkner just recruited freshmen and had little hands-on experience with the portal, then the program is in serious trouble.

Gabe Dynes' dad was actively pulling for Faulkner to get the promotion. Faulkner also had a lot to do with Langdon transferring in this season as well.

Did the women get a transfer from Cleveland State?

Yes. Two transfers IN for the women so far. Dacia Lewandowski from Akron and Faith Burch from Cleveland St.

My concern is the assistants on staff.  Will they follow Calhoun or stay?  Any info on this ???
I know of one for sure that is going with Calhoun.. thatís Paul Molinari. He was with Calhoun at Fairmont, brought him over to YSU, and now also heading to Utah St.

As planned.  When is the news conference?  I'm sure he is out recruiting so it may be time to get him to come back for a press conference.   Hopefully this week.  Good.move.

With Calhoun gone maybe just the wooden bleachers are being replaced as WKBN reported. Its possible the money line is being pulled!!!!!!!

No money is being pulled. WKBN is the worst at reporting in the area.

The University better not be spending ANY $ on the renovations.  It had better be funded exclusively by outside donors.  Especially after what the administration just did to the Dana School of Music.
Every single donor has come from private donations. Calm down, Karen.

Although things have improved YSU is one of the all-time worst mens programs in D1 the last 30+ years.  The players the last two years came here for a pay day.  How sustainable is that moving forward?

That is the correct question and YSU and the 350 other D1 schools are dealing with the same problem but obviously an OSU has different issues than a low mid major like the Horizon league teams.

The sustainability factor is how much can you afford to pay.  Unless the NCAA has any power anymore then it's going to get ugly and shady and like mud said we'll be cheering for the shirt since the body in the shirt is going to be different every season.  Looks like the days of a Kendrick Perry or a Cameron Morse playing 4 years at YSU are history.
I think the coaches see it and are adjusting but not sure the fan bases are.  Some of the old time coaches like Nick Saban don't want to deal with the madness.  Then again old Nick Had no problem jumping several times to the highest bidder himself.
Not sure I can be mad when another team pulls a guy like DJ Burns who we ourselves pulled from a previous team.

Yes it's tough to get accustomed for fans, coaches, etc., but unfortunately I don't see anything changing because as you said the NCAA seems to have lost its power.

I just saw this interesting tweet that Scott Nagy from Wright St may be in line for the SIU job

That would be... interesting. Why leave Wright State for SIU? Granted, I'm kind of saying the same about Calhoun. Why leave YSU for SIU? Both cases are strange to me.

From what I've heard, the team has decided to sit out any potential smaller postseason tournaments. The cost is too high to do so and most of the team is leaving the program because they're seniors. Had this team been younger, they would have taken the added cost to help grow the team. Being that this was an older team, wasn't worth the money to go play in a meaningless tournament.

Yes he does have issues to work out.  An NCAA basketball tournament berth and first round win would be more exposure for YSU than all 4 FCS titles combined. FCS is irrelevant to everyone but us fools that follow it for our schools.

Why basketball sucks.  First, the court dimensions and hoop height are very small for the sizes of the player today.  Many of these players don't even need to actually jump to get the ball in the hoop.  It's like watching young kids playing with an adjustable hoop and lowering it to play.  Something needs to be done about this in my opinion.  Secondly the f***ing horns are so annoying.  Third, the contact isn't like football and boxing, it's glorified soccer with a lot of acting (constantly ). Finally, of the game is close, which is what you want to see. The last 5 minutes, which lasts approximately 1 hours, is just painful to watch.  The end of the games are dragged out with fouling etc.  if it was a contact sport running into or hitting someone wouldn't be considered a foul.

It's a non-contact sport.

You're complaining.... about a horn? Good grief, we're reached a new level of stupid.

Basketball is a contact sport.  What do you mean contact?  Last time I seen a game they are physical and body each other.

It's not a contact sport. It's ghey. Football and Boxing are Men's sports.  Basketball is for the beta males.

You have some serious issues you need to work out.
