Thread: Hot Seat(s)

    Default Hot Seat(s)

    Gannon is a disappointing 0-3.

    Bloomsburg ... well, read the thread on that topic. Opinions vary.

    Seton Hill ... seat should be ON FIRE and not just hot.

    Mercyhurst cooled a little yesterday.

    BU’s seat is a lot hotter than you think. When the winning season streak breaks, the levies will break.

    Gannon has no excuse to be that bad with the amount they can spend on football.

    Gannon is LIT AF. Nobody is on the hot seat there.

    Private schools use sports to boost enrollment of male students, lower income kids, and minority kids. It looks good and makes them feel good about themselves. Winning is secondary to all of that as long as the program doesn't bring bad press. Gannon and Mercyhurst don't get negative press in Erie so their coaches are safe. Probably the same for Seton Hill.

    What type of press do they get for having brawls with other programs? Asking for a friend.

    Almost nothing. It might get mentioned in the article or news highlights but nothing with weight. Mercyhurst had a president resign because he molested boys and they didn't remove his name from campus until this year after the PA church abuse report came out. And nobody gave them crap for that either.

    Google "Gannon football fight" and you get articles about the 2016 game against Edinboro...probably because it involved Edinboro. The Erie media treats Edinboro the same way the Pittsburgh media treats IUP and Cal. This fight was one Boro player and one Gannon player.

    A couple mentions of the Gannon coaches who got into a fight with a former player.

    No stories about the IUP brawl. Just mentions of the PSAC sanctions.

    How about when the Gannon coaches got arrested for pis$ing on Philadelphia Street. Lol.

    They should be worshipping IUP. Where else can yinzers receive a good college education at a relatively affordable price?

    Certainly not at Pitt, Carnegie Mellon, or Duquesne - very expensive.. Good education, but very pricey.

    RMU is more expensive than PASSHE, but not too far off.

    Chatham, Point Park, Carlow, and La Roche - why would anyone go there (minus Point Park with Dance and Broadcasting)?

    A State school offers a good education for a great price. Cannot beat it in this area.

    I was at Cal for 4 years and didn’t read or hear any negative slander on IUP...except when your frats are killing people

    IUP quit releasing police dockets ... even to The Penn and Indiana Gazette.

    Basically unless somebody dies on that campus it's not making the news.

    The only bad press they can't control is IUPatties.

    Remember these coaches have contracts prenegotiated by the faculty union, which ranks right under MLBPA in handing it to "management." Its expensive, even at this level. For example, Google how much Edinboro had to pay to get rid of Scott Browning after he went 6-27 over three seasons. Hint: he was the second-highest paid state employee that year.

    Just wait until the white nationalist student group finds a better opportunity than the professor who wouldn't let the Republican student speak as much as he wanted. A friend who works at IUP said that student group is growing and a ticking time bomb.

    Back to hot seats...how hot is the seat up at Slippery Rock if they drop 3-4 games this year?

    I think both Gannon and Seton Hill make changes after this season.

    No chance Gannon makes a change. They're LIT AF up there.
