Tough gig coming back home to coach and not being able to get the job done. Blowing playoff opportunities with season-ending 3-game losing streaks 2 years in a row pretty much dictated the move, though. Something is missing in the program when that happens. The coach usually takes the fall. However, more than that, the community's apathy toward the football program as evidenced by the plethora of empty seats at home games is an even bigger factor in making a change. The new coach will have to rebuild the community's passion for Y.S.U. football.

As I predicted 3 weeks ago, Another inept performance in another embarrassing November.

YSU will NOT make the playoffs.

1. YSU did NOT deserve a playoff berth last year2. If YSU and Northern Iowa both finish 8-4 this year and YSU's remaining win is over Indiana State, Northern Iowa will...and should...go to the playoffs. YSU will not.

Prediction: Northern Iowa makes the playoffs; Y.S.U. doesn't.

Lebron James turns into Brandon Weeden before our eyes. It IS Cleveland, afterall.

OK, I guess I understand the sliding scale concept. It's probably worth fighting for. However to say, "The faculty has been disgruntled for a very long time. They’re demoralized..the faculty feels they’ve made sacrifices and gotten nothing in return" is the kind of attitude which won't win friends for the unions. They need to keep in mind how fortunate they are. There are thousands of people...probably tens-of-thousands...who aren't anywhere close to having the kind of pay and benefits those union members have. That doesn't give a pass to administrators who are also pretty well off, but for the unions to whine in public about being treated badly while the community and the university are struggling in so many ways seems arrogant and uncaring.

I thought the Browns were supposed to have a decent defense. If it had played at all well the in first half, the Browns might be 1-and-0. Instead, it's just more of the same...cruel disappointment for Browns fans.

Accidents will happen...mostly for the same reason many of them happen...drivers being impatient and/or discourteous.My question is why haven't more prominent intersections received roundabouts?
