NLI last day Is May 15th so maybe players and coaches are working out their options.   Coach C has four openings and there are five offers(one juco) that verbal.com reports.   Of those five none have committed yet.

Analyzing the other programs in the Horizon you will see that everyone or most everyone has openings too.   CSU and Oakland signed a player each two days ago.      Worst case scenario is we get no one and go with eight returning plus Jamir Thomas and scholarship a few walkons and load up for 2020.   Don't see this option happening since injuries can really decimate a season as we slugged it out when missing Naz and Covington last season.

Coach C might have been born at night but he wasn't born last night.   I think he'll have this worked out despite my impatience.

     No activity?  What can we distill from that? 

(1) The coach is recruiting candidates who are off the grid.  Chances for success in that environment are not good. 
(2) The coach is exploring DI transfers. 
(3) The coach is considering offering scholarships to incumbent walk-ons.

     Near term help is not on the way in any of those scenarios or combinations of scenarios.

Go, I am simply saying that each coach preaches completely different styles of ball. In this case, drastically different. The only way that Calhoun's 1970's/80's Bruin/Laker ball can be successful is at a program that is willing to give him time to put it in place. Which means a lower division team, or a struggling DI program like ours. NKU (on the other hand) is used to success. Prior to going DI, NKU was one of the nation's premier NCAA Division II programs. They have made the NCAA DI tourney twice in their 3-years of eligibility. This is the type of success that their fans expect.

Calhoun has already coached quite a number of games that are not his traditional style of ball; or at least the style that put him in the DII championship game. You can say that he is learning to adapt to his players, but he is recruiting them to play his own uptempo/all-offense style of ball.

YSU Penguin Athletics / Men's basketball recruiting ?

With 4 players transferring I thought we would have noise as of today.   Last year we signed 4 on spring signing day.  Anyone hear anything ?

NKU has only been a D1 school in basketball for the last 7 years.  They were 42-75 in their first 4 years.   Brannen definitely turned their program around the last 3 years going 72-29.

I couldn't imagine Calhoun going there.

I think this will be a telling year for YSU.  There was some improvement this year, certainly the 6 game win streak brought excitement, but I think anything less than .500 record & not in top 4 of the league would be a disappointment with what we have coming back & where the rest of the league is.
I agree 100%.  These are pretty much Calhoun recruits and we definitely showed significant improvement last season.  "MUST" get to winning season and competitive at the top of the Horizon league or recruiting and fan base will be quick to turn.

It seems to me that NKU is a "brand" of basketball. Kind of like YSU used to be in football. I do not feel this will be appealing to Calhoun, as he is really trying to keep his own brand.
You always lose me with your esoteric ramblings like this.  I don't get any of your NKU "brand" or "Calhoun" brand.  Calhoun is committed to YSU UNTIL he wins.  When he gets YSU to the Horizon Championship and the "big dance", he'll be gone, and not to NKU but at lease a upper mid-major which is how I describe Cinn.

FINALLY some OL help.  The way it's looked they might as well be starting me at QB, that way, when the OL gets the QB killed, it won't be any lose for the team!
