Told you so. One-and-done. This team couldn't hold a lead with the help of leg irons and an electric fence. Time for a change at the top.

I have been saying this for the last 3 years. As long as the coach is the coach, YSU will NEVER, NEVER, NEVER win. Just like a Republican will never win in Youngstown. So, if you like losing, we have our man. I would sign him to a lifetime contract so we can be assured of never winning!! Unbelievable! But I shouldn't be surprised. Look at the Dunn situation!! People, people....Wake up and see the incompetence of our University leaders!!

After talking to my wife, Penny the Penguin, she reminded me that the YSU basketball team is just following the footsteps of other Ohio teams.
YSU football- losers
Browns - losers
Cav's- losers

How silly of me not to get it !!

To understand how YSU lost you must go to Yahoo.com Sports. Currently, it's their lead story/video. Oakland has .6 of a second to go the length of the court and trailed by 2 points. Where was the Coach on this play. Oakland pretended to inbound the ball and the YSU defender ran into an Oakland player who snuck up on the baseline. The Oakland coach told the ref's the play he was about to run and the ref told the coach he would call a foul but only if the YSU player would knock down the Oakland player and the YSU player would fall onto the Oakland player. Bingo, that is exactly what happened. Slocum has to go!!
