    While we're here why not start discussing 2020? One season ends and a new one begins or at least the off season anyhow. There will be a lot of holes for the coaching staff to fill.

    The most glaring and obvious hole of course will be at the QB position. Is the staff comfortable in going with Javon Davis or do they try and dip their hands into the transfer portal once more. They certainly found an amazing signal caller in Maxwell. 34 TD passes I believe. That's pretty lofty stuff.

    Also some big holes to fill at WR to line up alongside Touchdown Brown.

    Damon Lloyd and Amendola will not be that easy to replace either at LB.

    Also a lot of experience has left the OL.

    Sarka gone at kicker as well.

    A lot to be figured out heading into the new year.

    IUP fans have months to mentally prepare for a down season. It will be like 2014 when we went 6-5. A one year down trend.

    You can pencil another loss already at Shepherd. We never win anymore in the Viet Mon so that’s a likely loss. Kutztown could be a loss depending how much they lose. Slimey is at home so that should be a win and who knows if we wind up playing the Walk Ons the final week. The season will be between 6-4’t and 8-3 next year and no playoffs.

I will say the IUP fans we met were really cool and let us know we can beat the Rock.
      The visiting stands didn’t look exactly packed.

        Rabid fans at an IUP football game.

        Made me laugh out loud.

        Worst fan base around.


        That's a great story about your band making the trip. Game might as well have been in WV. IUP students went on break the day before ... Obviously none stuck around.

        IUP may have had more fans at the 3pm basketball game than they had at the football game. Not joking.

          Nation, I've learned to live with your hate-mongering, or hate-deflecting, as you might consider it. Sometimes, it even helps me make it through the day. What I can't handle, though, is your general sense of pessimism. Come on, man. IUP is IUP. It's going to be great next year.

            It's unacceptable. I hate to restart an annual football attendance conversation but I guess it's inevitable. Back in the (hey) day, I remember some of the most "rabid" IUP fans were faculty members. I remember Fred Joseph and his wife, and many others. They were great cheerleaders for IUP football. Doesn't seem like that exists anymore.

              LMAO!!!

              I am just being realistic. A lot of turnover for next season coupled with a tenuous road schedule.

                I wouldn’t say worst. The older fans expect more but don’t get too riled up. To get Section C to cheer loudly is easier said than done. It’s been called The Crypt for years.

                The younger fans aren’t tuned in.

                It seems like every road game I go to a large number of IUP fans show up. We had a decent turnout this year at Millersville.

                The townies won’t go because of ticket prices. They handed out free tickets to local students for the game with St Thugs and they still didn’t show.

                You can’t totally blame the students. If school went on break they are going home. The eastern students got on the buses. You can’t blame the kids for going home. Why didn’t the townies step up their game. How freaking poor is that whole town if the can’t afford a ticket?

                  Penn State - Ohio State kicking off at the same time probably didn’t help.

                    The prices are a part of it -- a bigger part than many want to acknowledge. The other big thing nobody likes to talk about is the townies just really don't care for the most part. Why that is ... lot of theories, I suppose.

                    There's a lot of overlap between the football and basketball crowds, but they are different crowds. For whatever reason the basketball games get a much better atmosphere.

                    This past Saturday ... Miller was awful. The home side was awful, anyway. Minus the last 5 minutes of the game it was a funeral home. Compared to earlier in the year there was hardly any tailgates, etc.

                    Scary thing is the 'crypt' is getting older by the season. I hate to think what that side may look like in 3-5 years.

                      IUP basketball atmosphere - indoors, warm, amenities, and professional environment. Still wouldn't pick over a football game though.

                      When Notre Dame learned they had a home football game, they switched their home and away dates with their Saturday basketball opponent Wheeling. I recognize that IUP couldn't do that with crossover opponent Bloomsburg, but it's interesting that NDC made that switch, probably due to staffing.

                        I was actually very surprised that IUP didn't try to re-schedule the men's and women's hoops games on Saturday to later starts to be honest. But looks like they both drew rather well considering there was a D-II football playoff game right next door. The KCAC concourse on the team bench side does offer an incredible view of the football stadium with large windows. No doubt many fans got to watch the football game and then go take a peek at the hoops game during stoppages.

                        They probably viewed it as a win/win; plus they stayed warm in the process. And the clincher would be they probably saved some money doing it depending on what tickets they purchased.

                          Consider that the (very rare) afternoon men's basketball game was within about 60 fans of actually outdrawing the playoff football game. Incredible. Joe has a very consistent following -- and a much younger crowd.

                          Tom has his own crowd all together.

                              Has the Javon Davis era officially started? Does he seem locked and loaded as the heir apparent at QB?

                              Any notion they got used to having a Maxwell type and look to find a similar style QB? Or, are we headed back to the Lenny era of the RPO for the next 3 years? One nice thing with Davis is he's been here two years and isn't like starting fresh with a freshman.


                              ​​​​​​Preface that by saying I know Maxwell's don't grow on trees.

                                Nope. My superior IUP education wins the day yet again.

                                Whoever put the message on the scoreboard is a vaginal snowflake. I mean how many beatings did Denny give Mansfield and Cheyney all those years and “you people” couldn’t take the beat down from IUP.
