What is Youngstown State thinking?

This is not about football per se. I just happened to see some highlights of Youngstown State last week. I thought those gosh-awful looking helmets were a one time thing. Then I looked at the helmet project and saw that their current helmet design is what I saw: https://i.ibb.co/0Y8NJvm/Screen-Shot-...

Re: 2023-24 Coaching Change Thread

McNeese opted to keep their head coach after the worst season in program history because the buy out would be too much.

Re: Help me out here

Well, they're rated higher in model power ratings too. Not by much. But rated higher. I continue to think it's sad that the two most prominent HBCU leagues opt out just like I think it's sad that the Ivy opts out. To my knowledge, none of those leagues opt out of any other NCAA tournament. Not bask...

Re: Week 3 Score Thread

The offensive play calling was terrible and the execution on both sides of the ball was awful. One of the worst games I have seen the grizzlies play and win. Ferris obviously isn't a typical DII, but this game still didn't change my thinking that the Griz are no better than a playoff bubble team. W...

Re: Week 3 Score Thread

Montana avoids a scalp, beating Ferris State 17-10 The Griz didn't beat Ferris, they beat themselves. Ferris couldn't handle the crowd noise at all , and it ultimately cost them the game. Butler isn't as talented as Ferris, but they handled the intangible/atmospheric stuff in Missoula much better t...

Re: Coronavirus COVID-19

Just another nod to Secretariat. A horse named Arcangelo won the Belmont Stakes in a time of 2 minutes, 29.23 seconds today. Secretariat ran it in 2 minutes, 24.00 seconds in 1973. 5.23 seconds faster than today's winner. 50 years ago. He'd have beaten today's Belmont Stakes field as badly as he bea...
