Just wanted to post this for those who aren't on social media. Former basketball great Kendrick Perry hits the game winning 3 to win the Hungarian Championship for his team overseas. What a player.

I know that Dra is at Qb, but does anyone have a roster so we can see if there are any other Guins playing tonight?

YSU Penguin Athletics / Maryland OL Jordan McNair dies
« Last post by go guins on June 14, 2018, 10:05:25 AM »
Maryland offensive lineman Jordan McNair died Wednesday.

The redshirt freshman was hospitalized after a team workout on May 29. Maryland announced he was in the hospital on June 4.

“Our team is heartbroken with the loss of Jordan McNair,” Maryland coach D.J. Durkin said in a statement. “Jordan was an incredible young man, and his passion and enthusiasm made him an invaluable and beloved member of our team. Jordan was a hard worker and he always had a smile on his face. He was an extremely talented football player and a humble and genuine human being. He embodied the essence of what it means to be a teammate. Jordan was a fighter. Over the past few weeks, Jordan never gave up with his family, friends and team by his side. Our team will continue to be inspired by the spirit of this brave fighter. Please continue to pray for Jordan’s family during this difficult time.”

Always the saddest part of each season is losing players that "shouldn't" be lost.  RIP Jordan.

I do not think a D1 basketball school (men or women) can split scholarships, so I think he had a full scholarship.
Football at FCS and most if not all other sports can split scholarships to a certain degree.  I think in football the 63 scholarships can be split among 85 players to reach the FBS level.  In FBS I don't think they can split football scholarships, all are full scholarships.

You are correct in that they do not have equivalents in non-FCS sports, but they do not have any dollar associations either. So he may only receive Academics assistance (say a player chooses to live locally), but it would count as a full scholarship. In FCS football that would only count as a partial scholarahip and we can award someone else the Room & Board assistance. Many of the MAC schools still do not offer 85 full ride scholarships. If the money is not there, then it is not there.

Pretty sure I'm at least among the oldest people on this site, but for those that go back at least a few decades the changes on the campus are remarkable.  EVERYTHING is better than I remember! (with the exception of the parking deck, which is the same crappy facility it has been for MANY years!)  I started in what looked more like an abandoned military installation set in a slum.  We now have a 1st rate university that actually helps with recruiting, not a barrier to be overcome!  If you've read my posts before, you know I think JT is simply great as University President, but many of the campus projects to which I refer had many sponsors and benefactors outside of Tressel.  IMO, ALL associated with YSU over the last 50 years have much to be proud of!

Not sure if it's been mentioned but the plaza outside Beeghly Center is getting renovated as well this summer.
