YSU Penguin Athletics / Re: Move FCS football permanently to the spring

and also thinking how this could affect any potential NFL draft prospects, you would basically be a year behind because your season now overlaps with the draft.

YSU Penguin Athletics / Re: Move FCS football permanently to the spring

cant see this happening. most FCS teams would have to forfeit their "money game" and for better or worse many of these institutions rely on that money. Also, as stated above, most of us don't want changes to 'tradition' and at least for me, the idea football in the spring just doesn't sound exciting.

If the FCS has trouble bringing in viewership during the fall season, i can't imagine spring play moving the needle. i'd say it would probably be the opposite because now you are going up against baseball and to avoid the potential for heat exhaustion playing into the in the summer, you'd probably want to start your season in the beginning of march which now you are also competing with basketball and the college tourney.

Also, when would teams "spring" game and training be? most likely the dead of winter which limits outdoors training and potential eligibility issues for transfers between bcs and fcs based on what time of year the transfer happens. but that's all conjecture on my part.

I think its fair to say with no competition they're overstaffed.  If things don't start backup until 2021 that will have been 10 months of a lot of idle time and expense.

I only know of 3 full-timers in the SI department. Trevor is in charge of the department, has 1/2 website duties and spends most of his time with FB. Jamie Does publishing (programs and paper), SB, MBB and Track/XC. John was part-time, now full. He is the other half of the web and used to focus more on women's sports. Now, the sports are divided more equally between them. I am not sure if that is overstaffed, but I would not think so.

When Greg started, we were just transitioning from DII to DI and he had people as well. later in his tenure a full staff. Remember that we did not even have a full time AD for quite some time (although Malmisar was full-time). coaches worked things out themselves. Tressel became AD with a small stipend being added to his salary. That was the only thing that got his income up over $100k. I do not have a list, but we have had 11 AD's (including Strollo).

  There are four full-time staff working in the Sports Information Department.  For a smaller D-1 program that needs to cut costs that ridiculous.   I know times are changing and there may be more sports, but when Greg Gulas was there was a one man band.  I would also make the case that Greg got a lot media coverage for YSU as well.

Love the way some people make up "facts" to support some loony theory. Just wear the damn mask and quit your whining.
