This is an endorsement of mediocrity. Being 82 games under .500 in 11 seasons, averaging almost 20 losses per season, and with an average record of about 5-and-12 in conference play shouldn't be accepted by Y.S.U.I know there are challenges Y.S.U. faces that other programs in the Horizon League don't, but it's past time to let an aggressive, hungry, young coach who is motivated to create the type of success that will get him a better job do just that.

A decade of underachievement and excuses. Do we really want more of the same?

Everybody ready for another one-and-done in the league tournament?

Proving once again that there is no "D" in "team." Not in this team, anyway. It's giving up an average of over 88 points per game in conference play!You can make all the excuses you want (we're young...we've got injuries, etc.), but there is NO viable excuse for such repeatedly abysmal performances.

He had some miscreants at Nebraska, one of which transferred to YSU. Why has there been no announcement that Thompson has been suspended from or kicked off the team?

I hate to say it, but Pennsylvania's system of setting up and periodically realigning "sections" based on enrollment may make some sense in this area.How about 2 football leagues, one with all the D-IV & D-V teams in Mahoning, Trumbull, and Columbiana counties and the other league made up of all the D-VI & D-VII teams. There aren't many programs above D-IV left in the area, so they'd have to band together or find other leagues to join.No solution will ever be satisfactory to everyone, though.

"I’m much more disappointed in the effort tonight,” YSU head coach Jerry Slocum said. “I thought we showed very little heart..."
I am SO tired of hearing that same thing over and over again. I salute Coach Slocum for increasing Y.S.U.'s talent level, but perhaps someone else can recruit as well AND get the players to play better. The program has been mired in mediocrity since Dan Peters departed. It's time for that to change.

Is Cindy Martin coaching the men's team now?

This was the only game in the 3-game weekend cluster I thought they'd have a chance to win. Wright State will beat them tomorrow and Valparaiso will thump them on Monday.

“Very disappointed with our effort,” YSU head coach Jerry Slocum said. “I’m tired of it, frankly. I’m tired of playing great on the road, or hard on the road, and coming home and laying eggs."
Everyone else is tired of it, too, but nothing changes.
