YSU Penguin Athletics / YSU Football History Question
« Last post by tcpfootball on Today at 03:37:47 AM »
Hi all,

I'm working on a project on Jim Tressel's defensive coaches, and was wondering if any of you would be able to help me out a little.  I'm mostly looking at Dantonio and the defense that he ran at Ohio State, but I was hoping to fill in some background on Tressel's other hires and the systems that they ran at YSU.  I'm having trouble finding anything about his DC's in 1991, and then from 1997-2000 (was it Bob Tucker?), and was wondering if any of you were around then or know of any leads that I might look into?

Jacori Owens in transfer portal.  Another no-brainer.  Owens didn't get much playing time in his 2 years at YSU.

Two bigs gone so it looks like coach has to go out and bring in some beef.

I do not know hoe many of you watched the D 2 Championship game.  several of those kids can play mid-major D1.  all you have to do is teach them how to play defense.

It looks like one can enter the transfer portal if one has graduated from a 4 year institution and is going to another institution as a graduate student (and can obtain eligibility right away).

All others will require some type of waivers from NCAA.

The following article gives some additional information on the subject:

What are the NCAA Basketball transfer rules? A guide into the portal process
by Tristan Freeman 1 month ago Follow @hoopsnut351

The transfer portal has become more important than ever in NCAA Basketball. Here’s a look at how the process works and when to focus on it.

One of the most decisive topics in NCAA Basketball has been the transfer portal and whether or not it’s good for the game. But one thing is clear, it’s here to stay. Last season, around 1,500 players transferred at the D-I level alone, which is around four a team.

The rules have been all over the place from the NCAA, with many players transferring more than once, with most finding a way to get a waiver for various reasons that include being “ran off” from the previous school and not having a scholarship available, a coaching change, personal reasons and etc.

It’s been viewed as the “wild wild west” by pundits, coaches, and others, with calls being made to reign things in. And the NCAA, through various committees and boards, has come up with various changes to try and simplify the process for all.

New 60-day window

There’s a “window” for the time for players to officially enter the NCAA Basketball transfer portal for the different sports seasons, with winter athletes (basketball), having 60 days to enter after the conclusion of the regular-season/conference tournaments. So for the men and women, the deadline would be May 11th. Anyone who enters during this period will be able to become immediately eligible if it’s their first time transferring. Anyone who enters afterward will have to apply for a waiver, something that isn’t guaranteed by the NCAA. Grad students are exempt from this rule so veterans can move at any time.

Tougher requirements for multiple transfers

The NCAA has been trying to get out of the waiver business and has made it clear that anyone can transfer one-time without issue, as long as they’re academically eligible of course. But if they move a second time and aren’t a grad transfer candidate, they’ll have to get a waiver, which is going to have stricter requirements. Coach changing and personal reasons are likely to remain options but as the NCAA showed with West Virginia transfer Jose Perez, they’ll deny a player to get eligible if it’s not done in the offseason.

The NCAA has offered graduate transfers for many years now. Think of it as a reward for doing what you are actually supposed to do in college .. go to school.

Buffalo actually has made the NCAA tourney 2015, 2016, 2018, 2019 and made it to the second round twice and won the MAC conference or division they are in a few more times than that.  Plus the MAC Basketball conference is rated higher than the Horizon.  So yes it would be a step up.

According to verbal commits we did not recruit him

My point meant to be if he had contact with him as a transfer.  I know from first hand they didn't offer out of HS thinking he would be higher profile than YSU.
