Yep 50!  Just looked up the days for post on another thread!  Damn, this summer going fast in every way but the approach of football season!

Our coverage of offseason issues at the Vindy and Trib really stinks.  I can't find any updated info on the LB's with the gun issues in the parking deck, nor the transfer with the domestic violence issues.  Anybody know anything further?

Just thought the same thing about the Vindy last night. I guess that blog did not really take off for the Vindy. It is a shame, but honestly, for the short-term YSU sports needs to be treated like a public service by all media. The long-term interest has not been there; but I really felt a growing change with coach P.

 I like the way YSU is taking the number of days and highlighting the player with that jersey number:


I like what I see in Cole, he seems to be the real deal, not just a team GPA booster; but brains and brawn. Was a WPIAL Quad A second-team all-conference pick...started 20 games in final two seasons...as a junior was an Honorable-Mention Northern 8 Conference selection as an offensive tackle...member of the 2012 Pennsylvania Quad A state championship team...served as co-captain senior year..coach was Art Walker.

Chief, IMO, you are guilty of a HUGE understatement!

This is incredibly boring!  Donít get me wrong, I appreciate the daily countdown and I do realize this time of year most news is bad news, so I guess no news is good news, but itís still boring!

Would you prefer I dont do daily countdown then go? I did it last year and started at a much higher number. This year, I started at 50 days because someone had suggested that last year. If the consensus is that this is a bad thing though, I can stop doing the countdown.
