      They have some issues at that program. I don’t see much changing there.

        I actually expect them to get better fairly quick with a young new coach who is popular in the area.

        Not that they anyway to go but up.

        The only bad thing about him being the head coach will be the constant squealing towards him from the ESU fanboys.

            At least give the guy a chance to run the program as he sees fit. Very rarely can culture change overnight.

              let their record and stats speak for themselves. They beat Seton Hill and Clarion last year and they were lucky to beat (SH) after trailing late in the game. Check their stats and rankings in Defense last 2 years they have been one of the lowest in D2
              What changes are they going to make?

                You make it sound like they should just drop the program. Once you hit rock bottom ... only one way left to go.

                  I said they have issues and I didn’t see much changing.
                  New coach had a chance to make staff changes and didn’t. So that’s why I said I didnt see much changing. Did anybody pick them to finish in last place in their division last year? Probably not. They had 137 players if I am not mistaken come into camp last year and That’s more then other teams had to work with.
                  Maybe with him taking full control this year could make a difference time will tell.

                    Those are not issues. Those are statistics. When you make a comment saying there are issues at the program, you are insinuating lack of control, lack of funding, athletes constantly getting arrested, or whatever else in those realms. ESU has NONE of that.

                    They were not good the last couple of years. Their statistics are not going to be great. They are in a lull, but like fightingscot said give the guy a chance. He necessarily doesn’t have to change a complete culture. Will he put his own logo into that program? Sure. But Denny didn’t let the prisoners run the asylum. Denny had control. Jimmy has control.

                    He’s going to be getting more money pumped into that program, and from what I hear the president loves him. Give him a couple of recruiting classes before casting judgement.

                    But like I said earlier; you named statistics. Because a team is beat the bottom of the league in defense doesn’t mean there are “issues” at the program. The campus has done a facelift, top notch dormitories, state of the art science building, and rumors of new athletic facilities. It has a pulse, and regardless of wins/loses it is a program I would recommend to any young student athlete.

                      It doesn’t matter if they had 137 players or 400. They still only had about 10 scholarships. They need to increase their funding.

                        They also need to remove the 'interim' tag as soon as possible...

                            Not sure. That is a good question 82.

                              You're not entirely wrong. As structured currently, ESU's ceiling is probably something like 6-5. Which, while a vast improvement from the dreck we saw last season, is not necessarily something to crow about. I do expect the team to improve incrementally under Jimmy, and I don't think we'll see them go winless in the East again next year or the year after. But he's certainly got his work cut out for him on the defensive side of the ball, and institutional issues will continue to put a cap on how good this team can be at its best. But for now, some level of optimism is warranted.
