Ok, Ron do you need the entire team to walk out before you fix this disaster we call Men's basketball. This is a disgrace! It is now time to stop the excuses and fire Jerry now!

Keene was going to be the main guy next year running point... So that's what? 4 players in the last 2 years?

No need to worry they have a couple transfers he is excited about according to the Tribune article.  I told you that interview was scripted.  You cant tell me Strollo wasnt aware of this as his son is on the team.

BTW, its not TOO late to open the job and pay this guy off..... Jerry/Ron are both so smug they would never a$$ume responsibility and in Ron's case hold the coach accountable.  This really is a joke... Maybe they can blame the program defections on the budget too... What a disgrace...

Please correct me if I am mistaken, but the last place HL team just lost all of its top 5 scorers except for Hain (including two due to graduation)?

This is what no accountability looks like.

For a guy that doesnt like to play freshman,,Slocum will need all 3 signees to play major minutes next year. Thats why Umude, Morse, and Nickels needed valuable time this year, but no. Slocum basically built his team around Weber and Keene the past 2 years and both have left. Isnt it about time we concentrate on Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati and Pittsburgh for the bulk of our recruits. No one can tell me we cant get some kids closer to the valley so they stay for 4 years. We need new, young leadership here. I understand why Slocum was hired (won at a lower level), but for every Hain and Perry, we lose double that. Something is wrong. Another awfully long year again next season.

So last season can't even be repackaged as a "rebuilding" year. It was a University having a campfire with >$1.3M.   Maybe it was adult day care for Jerry.

When do the adults at YSU arrive?  I thought JT would have little patience for outlandish incompetence and wasteful use of University resources...in all aspects of the University.

Not sure it's Slocums fault.  I heard that both kids think they are better than YSU and want to go to school that that is bigger than us. Or something to like that.

Do a 10-15 year review of the total athletic dept and then say with a straight face that  Strollo is a good AD.

YSU sucks because of a good old boy system.  It starts at the top

Tell me how it's the AD's fault that those kids want to transfer? They were starters that bailed and quit on their teammates and the program. YSU gave them an opportunity and Slocom was making The one kid the main cog of  the offense with Hain.

In situations like this, anyone can a$$ume things, and make a case to blame whomever they do not like. Bottom line is real simple, unless the players them self, make a statement, we will never know the reason.

Yep, throw the players under the bus. Typical Slocum act.... Sickening.
