Reference to "colleged up" letter....
Good point on the writer's part....people may have forgotten that Howard Jones did not have an "earned doctorate" and his stewardship of our university did not hurt it.....time to think outside the box in terms of collegiate leadership....
For faculty that insist on "academic background"....they should ask themselves a very basic question--how badly do I need my job?

This is not criticism of the current coaching staff for YSU football.
It is a note to say that at last reality is setting in about what the programs needs. Relying on the belief that "local talent" is all we need to equal the "team of the 90's" days is passé!
I think Coach Wolford recognizes this and may be in danger of losing his position because he is the messenger bringing bad news.
It's time for the "football jocks" to grow up! YSU football needs more supporters and less "wannabe coaches!"

"The cost estimate for the new building is $29 million, and fundraising also must generate enough for a $5 million endowment for economically disadvantaged students."
Consider--$29 m for the building PLUS an additional $3.6 m for the endowment since 1.4 m is already in the pot.
TOTAL = $32.6 m......that is a big, bIG, BIG number......
This will require a whole new category of funding support--less than $100.00.
Maybe they can call that level of support "Cardinal Droppings."

and the pipe dream machine goes on.....return to consistent playoff appearances.....recruit northeast OH blue collar types....yada-yada-yada.....
there is a better chance that steel mills will come back than YSU football returning to its days of glory.....
better move may be to focus on basketball......

What other option does Ron Strollo have?
He's damned if he does (extend the contract); or, damned if he doesn't (extend the contract).
It is certain that the critics will come out of the woodwork on this news.

Mangino leaves.....is this the beginning of the end of the "Wolford Era" at YSU?

Revision of conventional wisdom about ducks.....

bottom line is that voters vote based on their own best interests--period....
politicians use "divide and conquer" as the means to solidify groups of voters around perceived "best personal interests"....example: use of term "welfare queen" term by white (mostly republicans) politicians to rally the white vote against the economically disadvantaged.....
