Thrift has decommitted.

In this game I agree the competition was not great.  We didn't just come down the court and shoot wild 3's all the time and then press and give up open 3's or layups.  And we at least tried to play half court defense. Our players are athletic and reasonably long and tall, but only Covington seems to be able to score from multiple areas on the floor and play defense. Our best player in my opinion. Naz is a great rebounder, but not strong offensively. Most the remaining players are hot and cold and we rarely get inside driving to the basket or passing to the post.  And with that can't really score with our limited shooting ability.  That may improve as we try to get the basket.  There is hope if we play to our players real ability, not their perceived ability.

They also have a pretty good quarterback and the guy before him was pretty good.

Watched the last 2 NDSU games.  What impresses me most is that they really don't have supper athletes at most positions, but to they play so fundamentally sound!  Tackles in space by their db's is outstanding compared to our play.  It is like our team is not fundamentally sound in many areas including tackling. I don't know how may times our number 7 is in space and beaten on a tackle. Maybe NDSU players are better athletes, but to me they don't look it compared to our players.  If we did a standard speed agility test like the NFL Combine, I think many times our guys are better.  But not on the football field.  At least my opinion.  It is like our coaching does not do enough to get our players fundamentally sound in blocking and tackling.

their enrollment is less than YSU so I doubt they can draw big numbers

I wonder if they built a bigger stadium, obviously a dome, would they have the fans to fill it.  If they moved up it would almost guarantee losses.  Probably something they don't want to do.  Keep the brand hot until it's not.

Nope the team they are playing sucks.  Itís not worth my time watching bad basketball being played. Maybe in another 2 years I will watch!

Your opinions usually suck as you know less about sports than my 6-year-old daughter, so what's your point?

I thought it was a great defensive effort.  Played a clean game and took care of the ball as well.  Even though the final score was only 10-point win, it felt like 20-point victory.  Controlled the entire game- something that we really don't do much of.  We still struggle finishing at the hoop.  Seemed like countless put backs missed.  It's really something YSU struggles with every game that needs to improve to win more consistently.

It was nice to see Noe have a good game.  I'd like to see him get more mins.  He's much improved over last season.  Covington continues to play well game in and game out.  Naz had another 10+ rebound game. 

Tuesday will be tough against Ohio State, but the nonetheless we won 2 Division I non-conference games this year compared to none last year in addition to having the opportunity to win several others.  Not only did YSU fail to win a Division I non-conference game last year, all but 2 we were 13 or more point losses.  I feel a lot better than last year with more talent & athleticism heading into conference play.

You guys are in the LaLa land of make believe that an FCS championship run is better than moving up.  Ask Boise St how it worked for them. Other than your teams fans nobody cares about FCS football. The Bison could pull it off like Boise did.  I donít see many of the BCS teams wanting to drop down for a championship run!  Itís about exposure not minor football championships.  As for the costs of the football program I think the students are footing most of the bill to pay for football at YSU.   If that was taken away we would be another Butler.

NDSU would not be a ďBCSĒ team theyíd go to a group of 5 conference. Also Idaho dropped from FBS to FCS
