Again with the Tressel brought us Pelini crap. Do you think Bo gave a crap who the president was when he called looking for work? Do you think he would have not called if it was someone else in the president's office (except maybe Shawn Eichorst  :)  )?

Fan, next time you're at a Penguin Club function reach out to a few of Bo's longtime friends, and ask them if Bo would have taken this job if JT wasn't the Prez.  Their answer would be "no".

I know the answer to that ... "yes". The better question is would Strollo have even made an offer without Tressel ... probably not. But in all honesty, Bo would have called, as there were several other parties involved that Bo knows ...including Strollo, assistant AD's, other political and professional people, etc.  In general coach T is in a much better position now than he has been over the past few years with much of that suspension nonsense expiring.   I will also say that it is too easy for the media to pick on Pelini and Tressel, so Bo's behavior must continue to be scrutinized by insiders before it gets out to the media and other conference teams. Likewise JT knows he cannot be seen as a university president that brought in a potential "bad boy" and have his ability as the YSU president called to question; so he stayed pretty clean in the hiring and will stay neutral should any incidents flare-up.

If you think JT has his hands clean of Bo and the football program, you'd be wrong.

Beeghly is a dump. Hence why Calhoun is trying so hard to bring money into the program to update it.

Beeghly certainly is not a dump, there have been recent upgrades. Yes more can be done and no doubt will, but a dump it is not.

I believe that Calhoun is trying to bring in money, heck why wouldn't he. Money can help all areas of the program.

with an RPI of 329 out of 351 teams it will be difficult to attract big time basketball players to come to Youngstown.  because of that it will be difficult to build a program.

The recruiting class coming in next year is better than any class Slocum brought. Quisenberry is the PG and leader of Wayne HS who is ranked #3 in the state D1. He may be the best PG in the state for that matter. Simmons is a long, lean 6-6 wing who can do it all for Beechcroft who is ranked #2 in D2. Both of their teams still alive in the playoffs. Atiba Taylor is a top 5 PG in the state of NJ who had offers from several power 5 teams. Also, 6-11 big man Jeffrey Otchere has named us in his final 5 schools and he will be making his decision here soon. Calhoun is building something great, it's just going to take time because of how bad the culture was here.

Definitely a good non conference schedule. Especially staying somewhat local.

You guys need to relax and lay off the culture-crutch. If you saw attendance at any of the games this year, culture is the same. You think that some guy is going to walk in and sprinkle some magic pixie dust and all of these top players will come to YSU. I have news for you, anyone (as a coach or player) that can do better than ysu, WILL do better. Likewise anyone that cannot do better than YSU ... will not. If talent happens to sneek through, it usually does not stick around. Just remember how many years we had the top players in the conference under Slocum. Slocum knew how to get a good player and make him the best in the conference. If Calhoun is cheep and wins half of his games he would have been fine hire at the end of his term here. Now that all of the talent has left the conference, everyone expects championships. You have to build your team from the bottom-up, unless you are UWM and Pearl. Now we all know why. So unless YSU is willing to make that same commitment (which would also destroy our football reputation), be happy. Early Slocum culture was no different Now Peters seemed to get fans going during his entire tenure. I am just being practical and hope that I am wrong.

Pitt, OSU, and WVU all have their 2018-19 schedules posted.  Cannot find YSU schedule, must still be working on it?  Any insight?

Nice, respectable schedule.
