Agree on complete rebuild, and asking anything more of Coach Phillips is unfair.  Already up against it, new coaching staff and no spring ball is not good.


As always any new coach needs years to get in his players and get his system up and going. If a complete rebuild takes longer and we have the right coach it will be worth the wait.
This might have been an accurate reflection 10 or 20 years ago, but not now.  Phillips is any good, he's gone in MAX 5 years.  You take a D-1 job as DB coach and it pays X2 a 1-AA head coaching job.  Coordinator's are getting 4X even 5X the 1-AA HC amount.

Not necessarily true, Phillips was making less at UC as running backs coach than he is at YSU. Some P5 assistants certainly make a lot though. I think Phillips will stay unless offered a coordinator position at a big time g5 program or a P5 school, he’s 52 and seemed excited to come home. Doesn’t feel so much like a stepping stone to me. Sure if he gets a massive coordinator offer I wouldn’t be surprised but just another positions coach seems unlikely to me
Secret is he has no series of P5 9 win seasons to fall back on for credibility like Bo did.  DP NEEDS success to earn his creds.  I agree, but I think JT was pretty secure here, but the prestige and $$$ was too much.  Frankly I think Bo would have stayed except for the MILLIONS!  We NEED success on the field, DP needs success on the field.  Let's hope we both get what we need! Frankly this roster is good enough to make the playoffs in every area but the huge ?? OL.  I will be disappointed with less than 7-5

If a big time program is after him that means he has done something good at YSU, so that is good for us. Then we find another up and comer.

That is why the Bo experiment was a waste of time,  He was not going to stay at YSU.

Are they moving forward on the new turf?


It's been delayed. They still hope to have it done by the start of football season.

Keep everything in perspective.  All athletic programs below the big time level are struggling with finances.  Everybody will be cutting staff.  Right now I am pleased that we have retained every one of our sports.  We definitely will not miss any fired administrators, and we might just discover that we had more assistant coaches than we really needed.

We had to refund 3 million in student fees due to the university being closed.  The athletic dept was supported with student fee money without we cannot sustain  D1 full sports slate of teams?  Is D2 on the the radar screen the next few years.  I think it should be.  I love our sports but we cannot compete without solid funding.
