SALUKIS
« on: November 16, 2021, 01:17:35 PM »
YSU finishes their 10 game season at SIU with kickoff set for Saturday at 1 pm.

The Salukis (7-3/5-2) have won the last two meetings vs YSU and a win should result in an at-large playoff invitation. A loss to YSU would be their third loss in four games and with their wins being razor thin (two conference games won by a single point), the selection committee may pa$$ on SIU.

Interestingly the SRS ranks SIU #26 which is much lower than the STATS or Coaches polls. This also suggests a loss for SIU = season over.

In their OOC schedule, SIU lead K-state in Q2 and only lost by 8.

Ma$$ey ranks SIU #6 and YSU #30

YSU’s last road win was vs SIU on 11 NOV 2017.

Point spreads currently pending:

SIU has the third best pa$$ing offense in the MVFC. YSU has the lowest ranked pa$$ defense.

I could see Mitch keeping this a close slugfest, but likely a respectable loss. My prediction: SIU 38 - 17.

Look at the excitement building around the YSU football program.  I'm post #3 for the final game thread just 48 hours away from kickoff.

There is very little interest in the program.  The program is at an all time low with no signs that it will get better in the future. I have been a season ticket holder for 25+ years and am seriously considering not renewing next year.  Most of the people that I used to sit by are already gone. The fan base has really shrunk.

Stages of fandom....pa$$ionate interest/bandwagon effect; anger; apathy. Anger is good because it reflects interest.If anger is not responded to it leads to apathy which is difficult to recover from if not fatal.

This is my 41st year as a season ticket holder. The only appreciation I ever received was a letter actually signed by Jim
Tressel on my 10th anniversary as a season ticket holder.

Not even a lousy "thank you" in the last 31 years since that letter.

As I’ve noted before, after being a fan since the 1970s, I don’t necessarily mind the losing. Any program will ebb and flow.

I don’t even mind the AD’s extreme incompetence. I can deal with the inexplicable Slocum and Heacock contract renewals and the Ticketgates…even though that involved direct lies to the public.

What the death blow to my fandom was the recruiting of a convicted rapist.**

Yet, here you are...on the YSU Fan Forum spewing your BS like your buddy on the other website.  Clearly you weren't dealt a death blow....cause you're still here and have YSU in your name.  If you have such disdain for the "F****** YSU Adminstration, them F****** scumbags", then move along!!!  You're not needed here!!!  Get over yourself dude.

I have to agree with Soup here. Everyone talks like they know the details and none of us do; so who are we to judge? Worse have been on the team. I remember going to a practice where a player was "escorted" off the field during practice for an offense much worse that under-aged relations . The bigger YSU's athletic program becomes, the more stuff like this is brought to our attention...whether it is media coverage or the type of player recruited ... who knows? Probably both. The difference here is that your administration went public. Same thing with the weed and two of our top players during the play-off yet. How about the tragedy of Jermaine Hopkins?

It is nice to learn about things and something else to use it as a weapon to attack the school and administration. Besides, calling your AD & department "incompetent" makes you lose credibility.

Geez….no need to get those panties knotted up. We’re just speaking freely while we still can (except for my posts that get deleted).  It’s ok to put the pom poms down and call promoters of convicted gang rapists scumbags (really also a serial rapist as the raping continued repeatedly throughout the course of the night until the girl woke up mostly naked and covered in semen and urine).

There is one good point that will come from this year.  We should get a  lot of media coverage when the other teams put out their hilight videos.

So folks bark about our lack of fans in the stands, SIU is playing for a possible first round home play-off game and they may have 5k in the stands.
